Thoughts on the Estée Lauder EE Cream

I like this product, however, I'll be returning it. I'll explain why.
The main thing I must say about this is that a little does not go a long way. I only used this 3 times and I find I need a lot to cover my face - or at least a lot more than I am used to using with other tinted moisturizers and even foundations. Also, even after only 3 uses, the tube feels significantly more empty.

This product only has 1 fl. oz / 30 ml. The tube is so mini and thin (as you can see in the photo) and yet it cost 46 dollars - paired with ridiculous tax here in Quebec it cost approximately 53 dollars. I do like this product but... I'm a student and das espensive. 

The finish is quite nice, I like how natural it looks, how it evens out my skin, and the fact that it has SPF 30. The packaging is magnificent; it's sleek and pretty.

Therefore, I am quite conflicted on this product. I like the packaging, I like the finish. I don't like that you need to use a lot of product to cover your face, since you don't get a lot of product in the first place. It's about the same size as the travel size Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, which I love, yet it's also double the price.

TL;DR This product is a very nice tinted moisturizer, however, it gets used up quickly and it's expensive.
