NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer


I have never been one for tinted moisturisers for a number of reasons but specifically because I often find they don't hold enough coverage for my skin but recently I have had a new obsession... 

My new obsession comes in the form of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (£29) which I picked up when doing my birthday shopping in London a few weeks ago. You can see that (here). 

The shade I was matched to was Terre-Neuve, Light 0 which is the lightest they offer. NARS have a vast shade range to their base products making shade selection very easy and fuss-free which is great for someone as pale as myself as I often cannot find anything light enough so thank you NARS! 


The formula is oil-free but doesn't feel like it takes away from the moisture it provides for my face. I find it really brightens up the complexion and although it is a tinted moisturizer it still has a decent amount of coverage to even out the skin and cover up the main areas I am concerned about, as for blemishes - a little concealer goes a long way. 

Since my skin has been behaving I have loved having something light and easy to apply so I can go along with my day without having to faff around with a higher coverage foundation. This really gives the skin a beautiful healthy glow, which is something my skin definitely lacks (especially around this time of year) and some products that claim to do this just end up making me look greasy which obviously isn't the desired look. 

I didn't want to believe the hype with this one but I have to hand it to NARS, this is a must have for me. The added SPF 30 is a bonus and the formula itself was amazing throughout the Summer and I cannot wait to go on holiday soon so I can pack this little gem up with me. 

Have you tried this? What are you favourite light coverage products?

  2. I've been hearing absolute bucket loads of raves about this tinted moisturiser! Who knew a tinted moisturiser could get so much hype!? I definitely want to try it out though, I much prefer lighter coverages on a daily basis so this wouldn't go to waste on me!

  6. I really want to try this! Right now I'm loving the IT Cosmetics CC Cream, but I wouldn't call it light coverage—definitely more of a medium.

    1. Really? Maybe it was the wrong tester? I'd definitely check it on your face when you are next in or get colour matched as hands aren't like face at all :) I'm sure you'll love it :) xx
