NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review & Swatch-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
NARS is anyway pricey & when it means buying NARS products from Insta sellers, oh dear it becomes freakishly expensive but I had heard so much about this tinted moisturizer that I could not stop myself from ordering this after I finished my last bb cream. I am NC 30/NW 25 in MAC & ordered the shade Light 03 Groenland which thank god, matched me perfectly.
What NARS Says-

This advanced, oil-free formula provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four weeks. Infused with lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients to immediately help thirsty skin feel hydrated. Kopara from French Polynesia and mineral rich seawater revive and re-mineralize skin for a softer, smoother, and brighter natural glow.

My take on the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer-
The TM comes in a sleek black flattened plastic tube with a nozzle mouth & screw-on lid 🙂 Perfect packaging in every aspect- sleek, travel & user friendly <3
The moisturizer is runny, lightweight & has a dreamy fluidity about it that instantly makes you forget you have anything on your face it is that easy to blend <3 Just a couple of strokes & you are done! Skin immediately drinks it up & looks lit up from within but with a very natural radiant glow, just like they claim 🙂 I have never seen my skin look so natural yet so good!
The lightweight moisturizer hydrates my skin well through the day but never makes my T-Zone oilier or leave nehind any greasy/tacky feeling ^_^ For ladies with very dry skin, I would advise using a moisturizer underneath.
The coverage is sheer of course, as with any tinted moisturizer but it does even out your skin tone & casts a veil over the little spots & imperfections making them far less noticeable ^_^ It is the perfect everyday fix if you have moderately good skin & I abstain from using it everyday only because of the availability issue :'( Otherwise I would have bathed in it every single day :'(
It comes with a good SPF of 30 & I only double up with another sunscreen during the harsh summers, otherwise I just slather this on & am good to go. It does not leave behind any whitish cast on skin & I have never seen any ugly flashback in photos.
It feels extremely light, lovely & soothing on skin & does not aggravate or break my sensitive skin out in any way 🙂
Pros of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer:
1> Best packaging ever- sleek tube with nozzle mouth, perfect for use & travel.
2> Dreamy, fluid, lightweight texture, blends in a jiffy.
3> Instantly brightens up skin & covers up minor imperfections & uneven tone.
4> Skin looks bare & naturally radiant.
5> Hydrates skin but does not leave behind any greasy/tacky feeling.
6> Comes with SPF 30.
7> Does not aggravate my sensitive skin.
8> Does not leave any whitish cast.
Cons of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer:
None at all- I am madly in love, but of course the only issue is availability :-/
Swatch of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer-
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer?
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is one of the best rated Tinted Moisturizers of all times & I was apprehensive when ordering for that exorbitant price because hyped products usually never stand up to their expectations but thank god I was wrong about this 😛 It is hands down the best I have used among all tinted moisturizers/BB/CC creams I have come across, be it Estee Lauder, MAC or Lancome. The lightweight hydration, the naturally radiant effect on skin & the beautiful satin finish, if I had money I would have stocked up on this. Highly recommended!
