Most Helpful Positive Review Finest Tinted Moisturizer for Natural Sheer Coverage
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Works great but pricey
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!
Reviewed by 504 customers Best tinted moisturizer I've ever used.

This is the best tinted moisturizer I've ever used. I love skin tints, and NARS has the best shade range with the best coverage. I know skin tints aren't designed to cover a lot, but this is the perfect balance of coverage vs. sheer, radiant finish. And it is buildable to even out the redness I have in my cheeks. The only con is that is needs to be set with powder because it is fairly tacky. I apply it, then do my eyes, then come back to finish bronzer/blush. But after 5-10. minutes, it's still tacky. Despite needing to set it with some translucent powder, it still has a beautiful radiant, almost dewy finish. I really love it!

It's absolutely amazing! It's a perfect match and gives my face a glow!
Love the product- question the ingredients

I stopped using this after learning about octinoxate and with the recent news about talc. I really loved this product and am having difficulty finding a replacement but there's strong evidence octinoxate is an endocrine disruptor and can disrupt thyroid function. Talc on the other hand, grows naturally very close to asbestos and as of now, is self-regulated in the cosmetic industry.
I love this product and hope Nars will take these things into consideration.

I love how smoothly this tinted moisturizer glides on and the buildable coverage is perfect. I'm trying to be better about wearing SPF and I have been layering this over Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen and it feels great on my skin. My only complaint is that the color options aren't very broad and I had to go for a shade a little lighter than my skin tone, as the one up from it was too golden. I feel the colors are a little darker in person than the chart shows ( I ended up with Alaska and have a medium neutral skin tone). Otherwise worth the money to me!
Best TM for dry skin!
megmar182 from Scranton, PA
I have tried so many tinted moisturizers and this is definitely the best for my dry skin! It's creamy and goes on smooth. Perfect amount of coverage, which is pretty decent for a TM.
Pretty, but not for me
Anna O. from Austin, TX
I tried this out after seeing U.S. representative AOC use it on YouTube. When I tried it out myself, the finish was nice and natural. As someone with drier skin, I would have preferred something dewier, but I think this product has a finish that might appeal to all skin types. I had to return it because it caused me to break out whenever I wore it, but I do have sensitive acne-prone skin.
Made my skin super oily.

Made my skin super oily.
Favorite moisturizing tint!
Forever young! from Marysville, WA
Very nice! Goes on smoothly and not too thick! It is too dark for my skin tone and a pain to run back and exchange for a lighter color!

This tinted moisturizer is perfect if regular foundations make your skin overly dry, or you're a no makeup-makeup kind of person. I love the fact that it has spf in it too. It smoothes out your skin and makes the color more consistent.
Sporty Spice from Dayton OH
I have quit using my foundation & using this for now. Love the built in sunscreen! I have super sensitive skin, that is prone to breakouts, so far so good!
Absolutely radiant skin!
Ab from Pennsylvania
I was a diehard Laura M tinted moisturizer and at 56 I still do not like to wear foundation. Laura M started oxidizing and it took a long time for me to find something New like this.
It goes on lightly but buildable, gives a radiant and light diffusing affect, and gives a dewy effect. It does not glow, so no worries there. I truly believe that this could take the place of a foundation. Very light clean scent but most of all, your skin will look like it had a complete reset. It's simply lovely on your skin. I do not have wrinkles but I have fine lines around my eyes and it never settles. If anything I look like I had a solid 8 hours rest.
Great everyday foundation
Tlmr from Rocklin CA
Light feeling , covers well without looking like I'm wearing makeup
Just what I was looking for!
Goldilocks from NJ
This product is sheer but too sheer it gently covers minimal flaws! Works nice under makeup or alone! SPF is a must!
TMom from Delco, Pa
I love the way this feel, applies etc. But, I purchased the wrong shade.
Skip foundation and use this
Acb360 from Bellingham,WA
Unlike foundation, this product feels light and smooth on my face. It doesn't look caked on like most foundations do. Great for those looking for all-over tone evening and light coverage + sunscreen. Love it! Been using for 3 years.

Great everyday coverage for any age. Particularly good for the older woman as it enhances skin and deemphasizes wrinkles. Love that it has sun blockage.
Everyday staple skin care
V Tsoulis from Cedar Hill. MO
I love my Pure Radiant tinted moisturizer. I have extremely dry mature skin and I love how it keeps my skin soft and it has SPF already included.
Great but hate the scent
Daniela from Los Angeles, CA
Love but the scent drives me crazy goes away but when you apply it you will smell it has a lemony scent but just prefer unscented. Will buy again because the color matches perfect and love the feel of it
Can't go a day without this!

Best foundation for dry skin!
Courtney from Cypress, TX
This stuff is the BEST. I have tried a ton of different foundations and tinted moisturizers and this is my fav, I always come back to it. It looks natural on the skin because it has a satin finish, and it does have good coverage for a tinted moisturizer. I get pretty consistent breakouts and it covers them up without looking heavy or emphasizing texture. It also wears really long for a tinted moisturizer - I would say it looks great for up to 6 hours. After that it does start to look kinda greasy/settle into lines, but I don't expect extreme wear out of a product like this anyway so I'm happy with it.
Zeynep from Philadelphia, PA
Best tinted moisturizer for combination skin.

MDCG from NYC
the perfect coverage I need. Lightweight, dewy, moisturizing. I always get compliments on my skin when I wear this. So hard to find my shade though outside of the site, hope it's not to be discontinued
