Full disclosure: I don’t use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer anymore. But I’ve been using it for a couple of years, and I love it, but my tube just ran out and I’m switching to a different brand. Why am I showing this one then? Because I still think it’s a great product, and, well… the packaging. Look at it! So simple. So beautiful. Sleek letters on black and white. It’s just so nice to look at.
I’m moving to a new one because I want a more natural, healthier-for-me product, which I’ll share soon. (Is that annoying? Sorry. One at a time.) But this served me well. It’s great for people with dry skin — like me — and leaves a slightly dewy sheen, but not too much. It’s just a bit of lightweight, natural-looking coverage. It has SPF 30, but with chemical blockers, and I want to get away from that.
All in all, it’s a really good tinted moisturizer that does its job slightly tinting. As for moisturizing, does anyone really use just a tinted moisturizer for moisturizing? Maybe it’s because I have dry skin, but I always moisturize beforehand. Then this does a good job evening everything out. And… did I mention the packaging? If I were to judge a tinted moisturizer by its cover, this would be my mainstay.
