Typology Tinted Serum Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

I have been gleefully testing out numerous products from Typology, and you really must try this first rate cruelty-free French brand. Typology Tinted Serum is a wonderful lightweight tinted serum that is filled with skincare ingredients that pamper and nourish the skin while providing light coverage and a gorgeous natural finish. If you love the no makeup look with a polished dewy finish that enhances, rather than conceals, your skin– then you will absolutely LOVE this tinted serum. This serum is enriched with vitamin C, plant-based squalane and aloe vera, and therefore it hydrates and nourishes the skin while leaving it beautifully radiant. It is suitable for all types of skin.

The Typology Tinted Serum comes in 6 shades, and they even help you pick your shade HERE. If your complexion is between shades, and you need to mix two, then Typology will give you 50% off on your second shade.

I have Type 2: Light which is recommended for light skin with pink or yellow undertones that tans gradually and is prone to sunburns. It blends away and disappears, and leaves my skin looking enhanced and radiant. I actually think that Type 1: Fair is a better match for my skin since it is decidedly cooler in tone, but I think that my perfect shade would be mixing Light and Fair.

According to Typology,

A silicon-free, non-clogging tinted serum for light coverage and a natural no-makeup finish. Formulated with vitamin C for radiance and squalane & aloe vera for deep, long-lasting hydration.

Each tinted serum can offer light coverage for a wide spectrum of skin tones. Our six shades were developed using the Fitzpatrick phototype scale which takes into account factors like skin tone and reactions to sun exposure.

A tinted serum may appear too light or too dark immediately upon application. Wait for it to dry fully to ensure that the shade matches your skin tone. Think of our six shades as a guide. The serum offers light coverage so each shade will in fact work for several different undertones.

Tips for Selecting the Proper Shade:

TYPE 1: Fair with cool undertones. This is for fair skin with freckles that doesn't tan and becomes red in the sun.

TYPE 2 (This is the shade that I have): Light. Recommended for light skin with pink or yellow undertones that tans gradually and is prone to sunburns.

TYPE 3: Medium. This shade is for medium-toned skin with warm or olive undertones, which tans easily but sometimes burns.

TYPE 4: Tan. For dark skin with predominantly bronze undertones that occasionally sunburns.

TYPE 5: Medium dark. This is for light brown skin that rarely gets sunburned and easily tans in the sun.

TYPE 6: Dark. The shade for dark brown skin with naturally cold undertones that rarely sunburns.

Directions: To apply your tinted serum, simply remove the dropper from the vial and press the bulb to withdraw air. Then dip it into the vial, still squeezing the bulb and fully release it to fill it up with the serum. Using a brush or fingers, apply 3 to 4 drops of tinted serum to the skin. Evenly cover the face and neck, starting from the center of your face and moving outwards to avoid any lines. In the evening, remove the tinted serum with our makeup removing oil or micellar water and reusable makeup removal pads.

Typology products are cruelty-free and free from Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Paraffin Oil and Sulphates.
Overall Assessment: The more Typology products that I try, the deeper I fall in love with this chic brand.

  1. The more I read about Typology, the more I want to try it! Especially this tinted serum!

    1. It is such a great brand! I highly recommend trying their products, you won't be disappointed Claudia!

  2. Since this tinted serum is from Typology, I know it must be wonderful! Like you, I think I would be between Fair and Light. Was it difficult to apply it evenly? Did you use a brush or fingers? Just curious.

    1. I do not find it difficult to apply evenly, in the least bit. Since it is a serum, and has a serum conscience, I like to apply it with my fingers.

  3. This is exactly what I like in a summer foundation. If it doesn't have a fragrance then I want it.

    1. It is a perfect summer foundation, Marcia! It doesn't contain fragrance, or have any sort of smell. It's a real winner!
