As a long time fan of the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer from Nars, I was super excited to see the brand launch another product in the category with more of a satin finish.Read More
This week was a pretty unsuccessful week when it came to wearing makeup. I did manage to throw on a bit of Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer a few days, but other than that, the mornings were pretty hopeless! I mean, if you don't count the day that I threw on some kohl eyeliner my coworker brought me using my phone camera as a mirror on my lunch break... LOL!
Anyways, back to the tinted moisturizer! I already seem to be getting a little darker as winter is progressing - I'm not sure how! In any event, wearing the shade Alaska is starting to seem too light (to me only) and St Moritz is much too dark! So one morning, when I really should have been leaving for work!
So that got me thinking. Do you mix different foundation formulas, or just stick to two shades of the same product? Is this something you do often, or do you just have the perfect base shade? I'd love to know!
I thought I'd post another video to give you guys a look at the new Nars Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30. I really enjoy this product, and think that it is a great purchase. Cafe Makeup mentioned that she's noticed an improvement in her skin after using this for the last month. I haven't used this enough to see that change, but it does wonders to cover redness that I've been getting. I will definitely update you guys if I find that it improves my skintone! This video is only with one light layer, but it is quite buildable and can provide more coverage.
If I could apply this as well as the Nars artist did, then it would be gorgeous! :) Gotta get me a nice stippling brush... or maybe just more patience for application? (lol)
- Light citrus scent.
- Very long wearing (12+ hours, and even overnight once or twice!)
- Easy to blend and apply.
- Also very buildable! (Sorry I forgot to mention this in the video!)
- No sticky or tacky feeling like other products.
- May need light powder or blotting if you have very oily skin. However, the dewiness is quite nice so I wouldn't cover it up. Also I've applied this on my face after a whole day, so I am a bit oily in the T-zone here.
- At $42 for 1.9 oz, that is a pretty good value - many foundations are only about 1 oz and some are over $50!
Hope that helps! What do you think?
