Light/Medium

Salt New York Light-Medium Sculpt and Bronze Crème Tint ($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light brown with moderate, warm golden undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up to medium coverage if desired.

The product had a lightweight, thin consistency with moderate slip as it was a more emollient, traditional cream-based formula. It never fully dried down or set, so there was always a bit of a shine to its finish. The color applied evenly to bare skin and diffused with ease, while it also worked well patted on top of foundation as it did not seem prone to lifting up products. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.15 oz. - $106.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "buttery soft, easy to blend" and is supposed to have "sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, skin-like finish." Though it's available in three types--highlighter, contour/bronzer, and blush--they formulas do not differ dramatically in terms of performance and feel.

It had sheer coverage that was buildable to more medium coverage, but getting full-on opacity didn't seem like it was really in the realm of possibilities, so those who either need or want greater, truer-to-pan coverage may not find it as workable. I'd recommend sticking with deeper shades for those who need or want more coverage, too, as the lighter shades were less buildable.

As a cheek product, the formula applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin as well as patted over base products as it wasn't a formula prone to lifting up complexion products. The finish was dewier, though it seemed to soften a bit after an hour or so of wear. They wear was between six and seven hours before there was noticeable fading and/or light movement/slide. I had the best wear when applied over a more matte foundation as compared to bare skin or a dewier/more luminous foundation choice.

Definitely a good option for lighter skintones, for sure. The formula looks and sounds great! I’d need something a bit deeper, though.
