Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - The Best Base To Ever Grace Your Face?

When the summer months come about, my skin loves a lighter, fresher base. Whilst BB creams are great and all, it's tinted moisturisers that truly have my heart. I've tried a few over the years, and though ESPA's offering is all kinds of awesome (check out my mention here), I have to say that I think Nars kinda have it in the bag this time round.

The Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is worth a mention for several reasons. Not only is it a complete mouthful to say, but it gives off that whole, 'your skin but better' finish. Yep, cliché ahoy, but it really is that good. One squeeze of the stuff is enough to cover your whole face, however if you do fancy adding a little more, never fear, it's incredibly buildable. Whilst it looks pretty smashing when worn on its own, when paired with the Clarins Instant Concealer you've got yourself a perfect match right there. One thing that drives me particularly potty is when a base clings to dry patches, but with this, you're safe no matter how much you choose to apply.

I'm all about the natural, dewy look, and this stuff certainly delivers. On the off-chance that it all looks a bit too shiny for your liking, however, a quick sweep of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder will magically tone it down a touch, without taking away any radiance. 

Like most tinted moisturisers, Nars' boasts an impressive SPF 30, meaning there's one less stage in your morning beauty regime. Oil and synthetic fragrance free, (it smells quite light and lemony) it also promises to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four weeks. I know right, is there anything it can't do?

In case I haven't won you round just yet, I should probably mention that there's 11 shades (yes, eleven) to choose from with the formula, so a badly matched, orange base ain't gonna happen here. Though I would always advice getting swatched before you buy, pale, 'english rose' gals, Terre-Neuve (light0) may well be your match - no surprises that it was for me.

Basically, the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is my new, skin-themed BFF and I would highly recommend giving a try if you're on the hunt for a new base. Nars cosmetics, you rock my world.

Are you a fan of Nars? Have you tried this already or have I tempted you?
