The Product

Erno Laszlo's Shake-It Tinted Treatment is a tinted liquid treatment that can be used alone or under your makeup.  As the name implies, you need to shake it thoroughly in order to disperse the pigment evenly throughout the liquid.  It tightens pores, controls shine, and keeps skin moisturized all while providing a lasting, natural matte finish on the skin.  

The Function

How I use this product:  The directions for this product say to shake it thoroughly, apply with a cotton ball, let dry and smooth with fingertips.  I wanted to find the most sanitary way of applying this product without going through dozens of cotton balls or using my fingers.  I used a cotton round and tipped the bottle 2-3 times, getting the product saturated in a small are of the cotton round.  I then pressed the product on my face, focusing on one area at a time (forehead, either side of the face, and chin).  I used a clean area of the cotton round for each area of my face (using 1 or 2 cotton rounds total).  Immediately after applying the product to one area, without letting it dry, I used a Real Techniques Buffing Brush to further stipple the product into the skin for a flawless finish.  I chose the Buffing Brush for its density and ability to spread product quickly.  

I have to say I really love the finish, lasting power and the effect this product had on my skin.  I have never used anything like it before.  I almost felt as if it "sealed my skin" because it set incredibly fast, I did not see any transference of product on any of my clothes and could not feel anything if I happened to brush my hand against my face.  Application is a bit more time consuming than for example, powder foundation.  However, that is a small price to pay for a natural looking matte finish that lasts all day long.  I usually blot about halfway through the day and oil usually completely saturates the blotting sheets.  However with this product, I had very little oil and noticed at least half the amount on the blotting sheet.  Bravo!

I also appreciate the versatility of this product.  It can be worn alone or underneath your favorite makeup.  I wore it alone as well as under powder foundation and to be honest, I liked how it functioned all on its own!  I was able to apply an added layer to alleviate redness if needed as well as my concealer if I needed extra coverage.  I followed with my translucent powder, bronzer, and blush as usual and I was extremely pleased with the results.  

The Style

This treatment comes in a 6.8 oz plastic bottle with a screw-on cap that needs to be completely removed to dispense product.  I feel like it would be difficult to travel with this bottle not only for the size (in terms of flying) but also for fear of it spilling during use.  Perhaps a different style cap that tilted to release product would make it a bit more user friendly.  Regardless, this is not going to stop me from enjoying every last drop of this miracle treatment!

The Bottom Line

As someone who is very skeptical about products that claim to control oil, I am pleased to say I am now a believer in this treatment.  My skin looked and felt incredible day after day using this product.  I cannot say that about many things that go on my face, especially makeup.  I personally want products to help my skin still "look like skin" while minimizing redness and evening tone.  This treatment did precisely that.  If you struggle with oily skin as I do, give this product a try especially in the warmer months.  For the amount of product you get and how little you need to use it is an incredible value!  That is music to The Beauty Puff's ears!  As always, happy shopping!
