NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser

 

While most of you opt for high(er) coverage foundations when the weather starts to cool down, I strangely enough go for the sheerer products, where tinted moisturisers are my forté. With my combination/oily skin, and army of choices, NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser is often the one that ends up on my face. Having used this more than ever lately, I realised it's time to add my two cents to the table.

Marketed as "your skin - almost bare, but better", it really does live up to its claim. With it's oil-free formula, the finish of the product looks like you've got a satin veil over your skin with your skin still shining through, in a good way. It's packed with naturally derived botanicals and ingredients to quench the skin. Kopara and mineral rich seawater help to create a softer, smoother look while adding a natural glow. It also contains SPF30 PA+++ which I find a huge plus, as I tend to skip forget to apply SPF when I don't see the sun often.

It claims that on the long-run it improves the condition of your skin though I personally haven't noticed any improvements on my skin. This doesn't upset me as I bought it as a tinted moisturiser, not a skincare treatment. Its light to medium coverage doesn't cover up blemishes entirely, but manages to mute the redness in my skin. My skin does end up a bit shiny throughout the day, but I still like this for my combination/oily skin as it's so comfortable to wear (there's nothing blotting paper can't fix). There you have it, a tinted moisturiser that does what its name says: adding radiance to the skin with the right amount of coverage. Your best pal when you need to cheat your way through those "I am so not wearing make up today"-days.

Which tinted moisturiser do you tend to use?

  1. I used to really want to try this, but having been through about a zillion different foundations, TMs and BBs over the past few months I have finally found one that stays put, and I'm sticking with it! I currently use the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions, which I do believe has also helped my skin, and it doesn't come off all day. My only gripe would be that it doesn't blend in quite as easily as I'd like in places, I'd imagine due to being oil free.
    Still fancy trying the Nars Sheer Glow foundation though - maybe a good primer is the answer.
    Hope you're well lovely.

    1. Oh I know your feeling... I've heard lots of things about the Anti-Blemish Solutions foundation, am very intrigued to try, but Clinique never has been one that matches my skin tone well. Will check it out though! Sheer Glow is bloody ah-mazing. That's definitely one on my list to buy and I found it lasts great on my skin (combo/oily) x

  3. Great post! I've been thinking about picking this up for a while now :)
    I really like using Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream on days when I just want light coverage!

    1. It's really good and the finish is gorgeous! Not too dewy and not too matte, just perfect. I've never end up liking the Maybeline BB cream as the colour match was a bit off, but I did like the formula x

  5. I almost bought this once but I decided against it because so far I haven't loved any tinted moisturizers. I just always reach for something with higher coverage and staying power instead x

    1. Well, if you're a medium-full coverage gal, no tinted moisturiser will do sadly x

  6. I've never tried this; I have been using Olay Total Effects CC Cream for a tinted moisturizer.

    1. I've heard lots of great things about it, but currently I'm a bit over the double lettered creams and potions ;-) x
