NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is my choice No.1 during summertime when you need something lightweight regarding both the texture and the coverage. It is two in one – a nourishing skincare product which at the same time provides you with a veil of colour.
In their own words, the advanced oil-free formula reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in four weeks. The moisturizer is infused with lush, botanicals and ingredients to help thirsty skin feel hydrated immediately. Kopara from French Polynesia and mineral rich seawater help to revive and re-mineralize your skin. It has a generous broad-spectrum SPF 30. It is for normal to dry skin types. It is paraben-free, sulfate-free, phtalate-free and synthetic fragrance-free. It is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic.
In my opinion, this moisturizer is more than a tinted moisturizer as it covers and lasts better than many medium coverage foundations. Although it has a light, sheer, translucent coverage, you can definitely build it up to a medium coverage. It does not set into pores or fine lines.
In the directions for use it is advised to apply it following your daily skincare routine. I have tried it both after my regular everyday moisturizer and on its own and for me (I have a combination skin), it works both ways. I definitely need to set it with powder as I have an oily T-zone. The lasting power is impressive as it stays on all day. It has a dewy finish which gives you a beautiful, healthy glow and your skin looks fresher.
The moisturizer comes in a tube of 50ml. It is available in 12 shades ranging from very fair to medium dark. Mine is in Groenland Light 3 which is described as light medium with a neutral undertone.
It is available from Lookfantastic (35,45EUR), Sephora Greece (40,95 EUR), ASOS (41,99EUR) and NARS Cosmetics EU (39,00EUR).
