NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer provides a little more coverage than most tinted moisturizers, but far less than standard liquid foundations. This makes it perfect for minimalist and "no-makeup" makeup days. It gives a beautiful, natural-looking finish that nevertheless provides a comfortable blendable surface for powder face products (like blush, bronzer or highlighter). The range of shades is somewhat limited in comparison to full-coverage foundations, but it melts so seamlessly into the skin that it adjusts to match the wearer's tone. (I am very fair with very cool undertones, but Finland is plenty fair enough and its neutral undertones even out my own complexion and make it more friendly to all colors without looking unnatural.)
Although the coverage is sheer, it does an excellent job evening out the complexion, minimizing the look of hyperpigmentation and blemishes. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for this tier of coverage and skincare, and I'm thrilled that Ulta is now carrying a limited collection of NARS staples.
Got this for almost 2 months.
Works great as a base before applying powder because I usually skip foundation. (Love the SPF protection!) But be careful when choosing a shade! The tint is very pigmented, like foundation. I thought I could use a darker shade. Wrong. So i can only use very little product and blend a thin layer with a beauty blender or else I'll look really orange!

I absolutely love this tinted moisturizer. It sits evenly on my skin and has really good coverage. It also doesn't get cakey, which is an issue I've had with other tinted moisturizers.
Neeta from Australia
The tinted moisturiser choices of colours used to cater every shades and skin tones. I used to use the shade Malaga for years and I've been told to use Santiago instead which is more of a brown undertone and leave my skin more dull. Very disappointed and probably need to try a different brand to find my perfect colour match.
Andrea from Clemson
Turned out greasy and left sticky feeling. At first, I liked how lightweight it is and how it looked once I put it on, also perfect color match BUT after like 2 hours or less it was looking all shiny and greasy, and it felt very oily :/
carolc84 from Lexington, KY
Made my skin look kind of yellow and was made for very light-skinned people. They make it in light, medium and dark but what about light/medium? The light work basically on Scandinavians and medium is the right shade for hispanics but there nothing in between, and the in-between represents at least 25% of the american population. It's ridiculous. I will be sending it back.

Yes it's pricey. Is it worth it? For me, yes! It goes on like a dream. Not too matte or shiny. You don't have to pile it on. Some days I think it wears off some, but for whatever reason my complexion still looks great. Because of the price I don't wear it every day, but definitely on date nights or when I have to go to work dinners.

I've been looking for foundations/tinted moisturizers with SPF in an effort to further protect my skin. I tried Nars Tinted Moisturizer ages ago (when shades like Cuba and Malaga existed) but found it didn't work for my oily skin then. I don't know whether there's been a change in the formula or if my skin has become slightly less oily, but I was really impressed with the tinted moisturizer this go around. I usually wear Nars Tahoe/Cadiz and ended up buying the shade Santiago, which was a good match. The moisturizer is really lightweight; I hate the feeling of foundation on my skin, so this was perfect. The shade match is good, and the staying power is great. I blend it in with my fingers and (because I have oily skin) set it with a powder and setting spray. It looks amazing all day long. I will definitely repurchase.

Love that its light but covers great! I wanted something that gave me a little color but not heavy like foundation. Plus*** has spf and hydrates!
Laura SL from Chicago
First off with a generous 1.9oz of product this lasts so long! Even though I generally prefer full coverage I love this product and will repurchase. It leaves a nice glowy finish and looks really nice. I also like the fresh smell and the addition of sunscreen.
Rae from VA
This is a great product. It blends so seamlessly that it feels like it becomes your skin, and doesn't transfer at all. It perfectly evens out skin tone with a light coverage to make you feel like it's your own skin but better. The only thing that's a bit disappointing is the shade range. There are no neutrals in the light shades, so finding one that works can be a bit more of a task, but I have found this is a problem with all tinted moisturizers.
Kristen from Maryland
Love this. Doesn't bother my skin. Not too much of a 'glow.' A little more color payoff I expected for a tinted moisturizer. My hairdresser complimented my skin when I started using this. This new Gotland shade is a miracle for me who looks weird in fair warms, cools, AND neutrals. I used to mix other products. So thanks, NARS!
cK from Westminster, MD
Don't usually wear foundation since it typically feels heavy and easily breaks out my sensitive skin. Decided to try a tinted moisturizer instead and I was not disappointed. Goes on lightweight, gives great coverage of my freckles, age spots and even my broken capillaries! Bonus...my face didn't breakout afterwards!
Babyborealis from San Diego
This is Amazing if you don't want a lot of coverage I use is because I don't like to wear heavy foundation and it works perfect
Classroom teacher from Massachusetts
I'm a teacher and this is a must have product in my morning routine. It feels so good on my skin and helps to add moisture to my combination skin. It has great coverage without looking heavy or like I have a pound of makeup on. It lasts all day too. Just perfect
Senior Complexion from Carson, CA
I have been wearing NARS for about two years. I was using Anapura. The application, texture, shade, and coverage was wonderful. I am 67 years old and was very satisfied with the product. However, NARS changed the color choices. I was told to use Auckland. I purchased Auckland, and the color was slightly off. I was then suggested to use Santiago. I purchased Santiago. The application is not the same. My face feels sticky. I did not have this experience with Anapura.
montanamom from Winchester, VA
It's light, even coverage, and a great option instead of a heavy foundation!
moe from ca
I purchased color Cuba a while back. And it was a perrrfect match. I ran out and wanted to grab a new one. we'll Cuba is no longer available and the color Santiago is supposed to be the color to replace it. horrible. I looked gray. returned

After I applied my daily facial routine .
rnnessy from Washington
Very thick and greasy feeling. My skin doesn't usually have issues with breakouts but this caused me to break out horribly. I'm still dealing with the fall-out a couple of weeks after I stopped using it. I'm guessing it's the sunscreen ingredients
nicobel from undisclosed
This product is very effective as a sunscreen and does not cause me to break out like other brands. I'm outside most of the summer and this was a must. As a bonus, it provides a nice sheer coverage, evening out my skin tone without being too heavy or cakey. The color has a diffuse, almost luminous quality and it isn't as difficult to match skin tone due to the coverage being sheer. You can add a layer if you want more coverage and it lasts all day!
Angie VT from Gilbert AZ
I have been searching for a less expensive line than Sisley Paris and I finally found it. I really struggle with the smell of products with sun screen. This actually has a slight citrus scent. Had a little trouble getting the right shade, but am very happy with this.
Morgan Douglas from IL
This is beautiful and very natural looking. It smooths imperfections, while not looking like a lot of makeup. It's dewy and wears well throughout the day.
AnnaTJ from undisclosed
I didn't get these and I finally had to cancel the order. I love the product but the service was not good.
MarciaMarciaMarcia from Nantucket, MA
I like this product, but hate the packaging. First, it's difficult to open--I broke a nail opening it the first time. Second, the moisturizer comes out really fast and no matter what I do too much comes out. There's no way to control it. I ended up getting it all over the bathroom sink and it was really difficult to remove. I'm not a packing designer, but even I can tell this is not good packaging.
Shannon from Orlando, FL
I was excited for something low maintenance, light-weight, and with SPF as an alternative to my full base routine. This is not it. I use a Nars concealer and felt that likely meant they'd have a similar shade offered here. Finland was recommended. Not only was it too yellow, it was also darker than my pale skin. I figured that might happen but what was particularly upsetting was how every single imperfection in the texture of my skin was highlighted. I didn't realize how many flaws I truly had till this moisturizer pointed them out. A disappointing purchase for sure.
