An Ode To NARS Tinted Moisturizer

The NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (£29.00,) is the first not-a-foundation-base I've ever had, and I'm 99.9% sure it'll be in my everyday routine for a long long time, I can't see myself ever switching, I doubt any other product of it's kind can compare to the NARS offering. I purchased this at the very end of January very spontaneously, it was actually suggested to me by a Space NK shop assistant after telling her my foundation preferences, I had no idea what to expect but it was my favourite brand so it couldn't ever be that bad.

The shade I really needed (the lightest, Finland) was out of stock, so I swatched the next and it didn't appear that much darker or orangey on my hand so I just went for it. But now I am wishing that I waited until the lightest shade was re-stocked, this does appear slightly too orange on my very pale skin, with good blending it's okay, but not a perfect match, but I can't say that's a con of the product- it's just my own silly fault. I can't wait to re-purchase in the correct shade!


A little goes a long way with this, I've had mine a couple of month but it feels like I bought it last week, such a little amount has been used.

Tinted moisturizers are not known for coverage, but being good for dry skin, good for older skin or the make-up no make-up look, however the coverage this gives me (which is light,) reminds me of the Chanel Vita Lumiére Aqua foundation, for a tinted moisturizer, the coverage is amazing- it blurs out a lot more than I was expecting it too.
It's not incredibly moisturizing though, I have dry skin and I still like to apply a moisturizer first, then apply this in place of a foundation, days my skin isn't so perfect I like to apply a very light coverage foundation on top. It works great either way.

If you have normal skin, you could probably get away with using it alone, but if you're dry, try using your normal moisturizer underneath this first.
This is a great product for those of you with skin that isn't problematic, those that don't suffer from blemishes/spots etc, because it gives a slight cover and colour without the cakeyness or the feeling of having a thick layer of make-up on.


It very much lives up to it's radiance name, my skin looks incredibly glowing and fresh when I apply this, which would also make it great for those of you with dull skin, just to liven things up a little!

So this is the product that's converted me from a foundation base to a tinted moisturizer, well done NARS, my skin loves this.
(It also smells great!)

  2. I'm dying for something like this for those warm summer days where you don't want heavy makeup but my skin is probably way too gross. Thanks for the review :)

    1. I suppose you could still use it but apply a lot of concealer? I'm sure your skin isn't as bad as you think it is!x

    1. I wouldn't say it gives me a dewy finish, but more a satin finish! That's probably because I have dry skin though :-)

  5. I really like the sound of this! I'm looking for a lighter base now it's getting warmer so this could be just what I need - I'll need the palest shade too though :')
