Finally, I’m reviewing the NARS NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer! I fully admit that I’ve had this moisturizer for well over a (few) month(s), and I’ve been using it on and off, but I hadn’t fully made up my mind about it.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is a basic moisturizer, a light lotion consistency the coverage it provides is pretty light. It absorbs quickly and you can’t feel it once it is on, so it is pretty much perfect for spring/summer.
For some reason I found that the coverage was lightest in areas that I rubbed the lotion in a little more (was I rubbing it off? Probably.) so those spots that needed the most coverage… well, they actually got less. I typically had to apply a little extra concealer or even a little foundation in these areas to even things out, which was fine, but I was hoping to skip this step (hence why I was thinking about this review for so long).
Consistency: Light lotion
Blendability: Very easy! I can make it look perfect with just my finger tips.
Buildable coverage: Only slightly buildable. You’re better off using a foundation or concealer for areas you need more coverage.
Feeling on skin: Lightweight

Problems with wear: No caking or settling into fine lines

You can buy this at Sephora or NARS.
