NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser | NARSissit

Thursday, 17 September 2015
If you saw my recent NARS haul (you can find it here) you would know that I picked up the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. I actually bought this online and chose my shade by digging through loads of 'swatch' images via the internet and lucky for me I picked the right shade. I'm in the colour 'Alaska' which I believe is the 3rd lightest shade - so I'm quite pale. 'Alaska' is light with a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones. I haven't been out in the sun (not that there has been any this summer) so this shade will see me through all of winter.

I was getting fed up of using foundation, and I wanted something lighter so my skin could breathe - especially during the working week when I still wanted to look presentable but didn't need a full-coverage look. I was after a really good tinted moisturiser for a while as the majority of them I found to be quite thick, similar to my Liz Earle tinted moisturiser. I found I could blend this really well with a buffing brush, beauty blender or my fingers if I wanted to. It is a lightweight creamy liquid texture that glides over the skin and provides a sheer finish that is slightly dewy, but later drying to a semi-matte finish all the while staying 'radiant' as the name would suggest. It provides light coverage, so if you have any redness or breakouts you'll want to use a concealer to cover these up. I find that you can use a slightly heavier concealer over this and it still provides a lovely finish. The fact that it is sheer means you can compensate with the concealer and not worry about it looking cakey. With regards to longevity, I found it lasts on my skin all day providing I set it with a powder. I do get a little shiny around the T-Zone area but that is to be expected. 

The NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser contains an SPF 30 which provides sufficient UVA protection against the sun's rays. I'm not one to put a SPF on before foundation so this is a great product, if like me you're quite lazy when it comes to applying SPF.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried this product and what you think of it. I personally love this and I would highly recommend if you are looking for something light weight and provides a radiant finish.
