frequently asked questions

tint vs. foundation.. what’s the difference?

  • foundation can tend to be full-coverage, cakey, and not super breathable or wearable. the TINGE tint provides a medium, buildable coverage. our lightweight, long-lasting formula was designed to feel like a second skin, giving you a natural feel + finish. 

    how does the TINGE tint work?

    • just like foundation for your face, the color and coverage of the tint rests on the skin giving you that immediate, noticeable glow while active moisturizing agents work their magic keeping your skin hydrated even after you’ve washed your tint off. 

      how should the TINGE tint be applied? 

      1. exfoliate and prep skin
      2. apply the TINGE tint to desired areas by hand or with your favorite blender, mitt, or brush.
      3. wait a few minutes or until completely dry before dressing.
      4. ta-da! you’re good to go. 

        how long does the TINGE tint last? 

        • up to 24 hours. 

          how do I remove the TINGE tint?

          • soap and water is all you need babe. wear it as long as you want, get rid of it as soon as you don’t.

            first time TINGE’ing. any tips?

              is the TINGE tint a tanning product?

              • nope. we’re glad you asked! our line of tints was intentionally and thoughtfully curated to elevate choice and confidence. our products are season and use case agnostic. whether you’re looking for a natural winter glow or a full out summer glam, we’ve got you covered. you’re guaranteed to find a match all year long with our line of trusty undertone-oriented TINGE tints. no streaks, stains, or stink here. 

                do TINGE products contain DHA?

                    does the TINGE tint protect my skin from UV rays?
