PIGMENTATION: Urban Defense has enough pigmentation to even out my skin tone, but not cover my scars (as a tinted moisturizer, I wasn't expecting it to, but you can check out how I use it to suit my needs here). I have this in the lightest shade Sephora offers, Halo, and I think it's an excellent match for my skin tone.
PERFORMANCE: This has an almost mousse-like texture, and goes on very easily and evenly. I love how it has a built-in sun protection (SPF 20), so i don't need a separate sunscreen. My qualm with it is that it feels a bit heavy on my face, as if i was wearing a heavy-duty foundation, and that I've had to be more vigilant with the blotting sheets when wearing this.
PACKAGING: It's a simple squeeze tube-- super easy to use.
Warning: here are some before and after shots of me.

Since Urban Defense takes two steps out of my makeup routine, it's a bit of a lifesaver. If you're lucky enough to not have scars, and need something to moisturize + protect your skin + even out our skintone when you've got 6 seconds before you run out the door, I highly recommend this.
You don't have to take my word for it, Urban Defense is available at Sephora.
