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!

Light to medium coverage but easily buildable should you need more. Dries quickly to a beautiful, natural finish. It's like you have no makeup on at all. I love this product!
Lightweight - and that's why I like it
Friday from Texas
It's exactly what the product name says. A tinted moisturizer with SPF. Don't expect it to be a foundation that gives coverage for dark spots or smoothing out your complexion. I like it because it's lightweight and provides the SPF protection, which as we know, is very important for now and in the future.

After years of wearing another brand, they've slowly discontinued everything I like! I switched to NARS after seeing some reviews on TikTok and doing some research. I LOVE everything I've tried so far!!
Flawless glowing skin!
Kaitp96 from Salt Lake City
I have been looking for an effective tinted moisturizer for a long time. I finally found this one and in love with the results! It matches my skin perfectly without adding an orange hue and stays on all day! Even with my mask I can wear it happily without worrying about the makeup on my nose rubbing off.
Awful color for fair gal!
Europegirl from Ny
This is a horrible color for a fair person the first color Finland it's yellow with orange or peach in it and it's not that fair makes you look like a big orangey peachy weirdo very off color it's also not great if you're an older person because it is very radiance which can increase wrinkles and pores!
L Alex from Montana
It blends and sinks into my skin for a perfect even tone.
I've dipped my blender in other brands but nothing compares.
Groenland 3 is the way to go for in-between tones
KH Seattle from seattle, WA
been using this (Groenland 3) for years it's the only color that completely blends into my skin; Norwegian/Polynesian& my skin tone is kind of on the dark side of fair but with yellow undertones, most products either look too light or too dark depending if I've been in the sun but Groenland 3 bridges the gap perfectly.
I wish I had started wearing this sooner!
Kathy from Alabama
After applying a drop of Argan oil to my face, I apply a small amount of this tinted moisturizer to give me the sheer coverage I desire. It lasts all day without looking oily, caked, or settled in my creases. This product doesn't clog my pores either, which is a big plus. My coworker said my skin looks 10 years younger.
Good product, bad color selection
Liz from Ann Arbor
I love how the product applies and wears. It's light (in texture and coverage) and blends well. It lasts a decent amount of time without getting cakey. You don't really need a primer to wear it well because it's really just a tinted moisturizer. That said, their entire color selection is a bit too warm for my skin. Tried Groenland (too warm, too dark) and Terre Neuve (too warm still). Those are really the only two colors that would have been a decent match, but are just too warm. I look like I got into a fight with some bronzer. If you can wear these colors, go for it. The product is great for daily use.

I have loved NARS for years and the tinted moisturizer feels like satin on my face. Fabulous coverage every time. I love it!
Minnie from Philly
I wanted a tinted moisturizer to wear to work and wearing a mask for 14 hours definitely lets you know when you have more make up left on the mask than you do on your face. Even after putting this on, 30 minutes later, 3 hours later if you touch your face your fingers will be orange! Didn't finish the bottle, would never buy it again.
I love this product!
Tina E. from West Virginia
I love this product. It gives me great coverage and doesn't feel cakey. It's a light coverage and works great with the NARS primer.
Great product in summer and in winter
Merry from San Francisco
I have combo skin ,I always love lightweight,radiant look.It has light to medium coverage and good shade range and long lasting.I bought Alaska it matches me great.I recommend it people who want light and radiant skin
Love tinted moisturizers!
Lynn from WI
This tinted moisturizer gives my nice coverage, but is oil-free and has sunscreen.
Great natural look
Lady Jane from Livermore, California
I am in my 60's and have tried other tinted moisturizers and foundations. They all seemed to accent my fine lines and wrinkles. Not with this moisturizer, this gives good coverage and seems to minimize my fine lines and wrinkles.It feels very nice on and gives a dewy finish. My friends keep commenting on how nice my complexion looks. I have fair skin and use Finland. I would definitely recommend this for older ladies with dry skin who want a great moisturizer that evens out your skin tone.

Flawless light coverage, quick and easy to blend, looks good all day even in heat and humidity. Light moisture and sunscreen makes it a daily essential
Best tinted moisturizer
anonymous from Pasadena, CA
This is the best light foundation I have ever used and the only one I've used for several years. Please never stop making it! The texture feels completely natural and the look is a dewy, natural one.
Not good for mature skin
Ann from North Wilkesboro, NC
I wanted to like this tinted moisturizer but it did not work for my mature skin! Too dark. Looked like rust on my face. It was the worst tinted moisturizer I've ever tried. Very disappointed! Dries very fast! Had to return. It's great that Ulta accepts returns so I'm so thankful for that since NARS is on the expensive side!
Anonymous from New York
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the formula!! My skin looks so great with it on. The only downfall is that there is not much of a shade selection. I use the terre neuve shade which is the lightest one and it fits me perfectly. However, I don't know how it will be in the winter when I'm even more pale than I am now. But I def recommend this!
I REALLY wanted to love this one
Cee_Zee from Jacksonville, FL
I really wanted to love this tinted moisturizer. Everything I have ever purchase from NARS has always lived up to the hype. Brilliant colors, amazing foundations, etc. But this product (no matter how little is used) gets extremely oily and slick within an hour of putting it on. I always moisturize and prime before any application.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
BB Lewis from Little Rock, AR
I love this stuff. A little bit goes a long ways. I have been searching and searching for a foundaiton that does not settle into my fine lines and wrinkles or cake up in my dry patches. I have finally found my forever foundation!
Amazing tinted moisturizer!
Marina from Los Angeles
Love that I am not into wearing makeup everyday but this product makes me look very natural yet my skin very smooth. I still have some melasma from pregnancy and this is perfect.
I'm a convert!
anonymous from Atlanta, GA
When Kiehl's canceled their tinted moisturizer I was super bummed (big mistake - HUGE!). Searched high and low for something creamy, light but with sufficient staying power. THIS IS IT. I can't even remember why I used Kiehl's (or Bobbi Brown for that matter) for so long.
Excellent! Never change this product.
Malika from San Ramon, CA
I look bright and pretty after putting this "foundation" on! Happy that I bought this - I've always had difficulty finding the correct shade for my half-Asian skin (I have some yellow undertones). I use my fingers to apply and with the SPF I feel comfortable going out on a sunny day. My Husband likes how I look too (and he doesn't want me to wear makeup.
