Morphe 2 vs. Glossier Skin Tint- Which One is Better?

No video meetings = no makeup these days! The nice part about staying home during a pandemic is that I feel less inclined to wear makeup and more comfortable in my own skin. While it's been nice letting my skin breathe, I did pick up a new beauty product that I had to share with you. 

It's been no secret on this blog that I absolutely love Glossier. Every single product in my makeup routine is from their brand. I rarely wear full coverage foundation, so their Perfecting Skin Tint ($26) has been exactly what I've been looking for ever since NYX discontinued my favorite tinted moisturizer. I've been using the Glossier version for a couple years now with no qualms. 

I was almost due for a Glossier restock when I noticed that Morphe released a collection called "Morphe 2" which looked very similar to Glossier. I ordered the Hint Hint Skin Tint ($17) in the shade "Hint of Beige" and it arrived in just a few days. I rarely order foundation products online because I never seem to choose the right shade for my skin tone, but since I'm avoiding IRL shopping right now, I just decided to go for it.

How does the Morphe skin tint compare to the Glossier one? In my opinion, it's a total dream product. 11/10 stars all the way. The shade I picked was a perfect match for my skin. Kudos to their photography team for capturing those colors accurately! 

Let's go through the differences and similarities between the Morphe and Glossier skin tints...

Price- Morphe wins! At $9 cheaper, it's a much better value. Both products are 1 fluid ounce.

Packaging- Morphe slightly wins. Morphe packages their skin tint in a glass bottle and Glossier's bottle is plastic, but both are recyclable. The Morphe packaging features an eyedropper for easy application. Glossier's bottle can be squeezed to release the product, but I've always found that the bottle is pretty rigid so the eyedropper application is a little easier to use.

Shade Range- Another win for Morphe! The Glossier shade range includes 12 shades while Morphe consists of 20 shades. Both brands have great shade finder features, but if you are very light skinned or dark skinned, Morphe seems to carry the better range of options.

Coverage/Finish- Do you see a trend here? Yeah, Morphe wins. While I do love the Glossier skin tint, I have always felt that the coverage is not very buildable and it appears very shiny on the skin after application. I always wear a setting powder over the Glossier tint to lock it in place and mattify the finish. Morphe's Hint Hint Skin Tint is extremely buildable and a little bit more opaque, while still being sheer. The finish is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like velvet on your skin. Not too shiny and not too matte. It feels like skin to the touch- not tacky or dry.

Wear Test- Morphe. Wins. Again. I wore the Morphe tint while painting my house all day and I was sweating buckets. It stayed in place and didn't separate at all on my face. My skin was naturally shiny from all the sweat, but it had a gorgeous glow. There was a slight buildup of product around my eyes from creasing, but way less than the creasing that usually appears when I wear the Glossier tint.

If you couldn't already tell, I LOVE this product and will be repurchasing it again and again. Since I rarely wear lots of makeup, I fully expect this bottle to last me through the end of the year. I may even pick up a lighter shade to stow away for winter when I inevitably lose my tan. If you like a light to medium coverage foundation that feels barely there, I highly recommend this product. While it has a sheer appearance, it's very easily buildable and you can cover any problem areas within just a couple applications. If your shade is sold out on Morphe's website, Ulta is stocking the full collection too. This was a total win in my book and I look forward to using it in my makeup routine!
