Nars pure radiant tinted moisturiser




The NARS pure radiant tinted moisturiser is something which I've wanted to try for a good while now, but i never really thought i needed due to the fact i already owned a couple other tinted moisturisers. After seeing Victoria from In the Frow talk about it and how she was taking it travelling with her, i realised i had a NARS shaped whole in the heart and i went out to get it almost immediately. Just my luck it was out of stock for almost the whole of summer, but once i got my hands on it, it was a lifesaver and i really could not be happier with my purchase.

The Nars pure radiant tinted moisturiser is a great everyday base for those not looking for too much coverage. I'd say its a light to medium coverage, but can be built up slightly to a medium coverage without becoming too cakey or heavy. What i love about this is that its the perfect tone for my skin. Often tinted moisturisers are too pink toned which means i never really opt for them on a daily bases unless there's really no need for foundation, but this is the perfect balance between yellow and pink toned. I'd say it leans a little to the yellow side of things, but its pretty much neutral. It's also beautifully radiant on the skin. Not to the extent that your going to look like a disco ball, but it gives your skin such a natural looking healthy glow which just really brightens up your complexion.

For a tinted moisturiser i find this lasts surprisingly well on my skin. I wear this to college and it lasts all day without making me look shiny, with only a powder in the morning to set and once midday to keep it looking fresh. This may not be the case for oily/combination skinned girls as i do have relatively normal/dehydrated skin which only really gets oily with heavier bases, but i think its well worth the few extra powders. Another thing, i never really find tinted moisturisers to actually be moisturising, rather just comfortable, but when i apply this my skin instantly feels less tight and full of life.

The thing which really persuaded me to get it was the SPF. It has SPF 30 and offers broad-spectrum sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays, so when i use this i don't have to worry about applying an spf separately unless i'm going to be under harsh direct sunlight from a long period of time, which is lets face it, never. This makes it a great choice for the summer and also for school/college as i can slap it on in a hurry and know its protecting and moisturising my skin. The Nars pure radiant tinted moisturiser costs £28, but for the amount you get it's definitely worth it, as you only need the smallest amount to cover your whole face. I can see this lasting me through to next summer, even using it almost every day!

The only niggle i have is that the shade range is slightly off. I'm the shade medium1, St. Moritz, whereas i'm usually shade medium3 in the Nars sheer glow, which means if your really pale then it may not be the best choice, but if you have darker skin than me then this product will be a life saver as it can be so so hard to find dark tinted moisturisers.

So, all in all, there's nothing bad i can really say about this product. I love it, and its definitely my new holy grail base as i rarely ever wear foundation on a day to day basis now that my skin has hugely improved. I'd definitely recommend this if your in the market for a new light base as this does everything you could need in a base product and is just lovely to use.
