Promising review (for Skin-Enhancing Tint): “I don’t like the heaviness of foundation and appreciate the light/natural feeling of a tinted moisturizer so I’ve pretty much experimented with all the different tinted moisturizers out on the market and I can easily say AMI COLE IS IT!!!! I genuinely don’t think anything comes close to this formula that really feels like my skin!!! I don’t feel it on, it’s lightweight, natural and feels so hydrating. I’ve got tons of compliments about my skin glowing, and people often wonder if I have something on and that’s with two or three pumps across my face. If you need more coverage you can add on as described on the packaging, but I like a minimal natural look…The shade range is amazing even for nonBlack girls, but I’ve definitely recommended this to all my melanin-rich queens who have struggled to find brands that can accommodate their skin tones. Thank you for making a beautiful product I can always rely on.” —Meriam J., Ami Colé Customer
