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!

Terre Neuve is a perfect match (I wear Fenty 120)
Ris from Wisconsin
I wanted something lighter for "no makeup" makeup days than my Fenty 120 foundation. Terre Neuve is a perfect match for me! There is a good amount of product, it had a slight "fruity/summery" smell and a little bit goes a long way. It's sheer, feels like my skin and also covers pores and some redness. I love it so far!
Great tinted moisturizer
Liz from Texas
I love natural makeup so I wanted to try this out. I just bought this tinted moisturizer and I love it! It makes my skin so glowy and dewy. It looks so natural, I also have oily skin but it still looks great!!
Love this product 💞
CC from Jersey
I love this product. I have been using it since my prom back in 2018. It is very lightweight and it doesn't cake up. Nor does it irritate my skin or makes it feel dry. My friends saw me use it and were really shocked at how well it also blended into my skin.

My new obsession
Carmrorm from Alaska
I was in search of a foundation with minimal coverage and wouldn't give an appearance to me even wearing foundation. I just wanted a blur effect that would even out my skin. This worked perfectly for that.
I FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT TINTED MOISTURIZER!!!!
Morgan from Warner Robins, GA
I have rosasia and usually tinted moisturizers are terrible for me. Idk what magic juju this stuff has in it but ✨it's amazing✨ I promise you I have tried so many of these because I just want to even out my skins look and texture. AND FINALLY. THIS DID IT.
It's the flawless finish and spf 30 for me.
*i have dry skin
Not for fair skinned and that makes me sad!
ImASnowman from Cleveland, MO
I love this tinted moisturizer! Love the feel, the coverage, love how it sits on my skin. My skin loves the hydration. My only problem is I tried the terre and the finland and they BARELY worked for my summer shades, they both were just a hair to dark! And now Summer is ending and I am becoming my even paler self! And there isn't anything for me to move down too! They need to make a Arctic Alabaster shade or something! I need this for Winter!
Best shade and lightweight

Perfect shade for me.

It's everything!! I am so picky and I love this product. For a middle aged 44 year old woman, I feel more youthful and beautiful! I recommend this product! Buy 2 because it's that good ☺️
Very thick product
clmurphy24 from Warminster, Pa
This product was very thick, not light and sheer that I thought it would be. When I first applied this product, it went on just like a foundation would, I was not expecting that. The color tone was really off so unfortunately it had to be returned. Due to the COVID-19 and not being able to try the product on in the store, I just opted to return it. Maybe I'll try at a later date to sample in the store.
There are better tinted moisturizers
Jaz from Riverside, CA
I was not impressed by this tinted moisturizer. It was really sticky, creased and separated more than other tinted moisturizers. The color that I was matched for was also wrong. I would recommend the IT cosmetics CC cream over this one.
Great for volcano pimples!
Nadia from Charlotte
I've tried this on and off over a span of 10 months. But every time I try to use it even with using different methods, my skin breaks out in the worse way!

Jewels777 from Los Angeles
I do not really use tinted moisturizer at all. This is my first, and let me tell you, this is so excellent. It looks so flawless, no makeup, makeup look. I mean I added some Nars blush too, but it set well on top of this. I mean sheez, this is an excellent tinted moisturizer, it feels like skin. I am super impressed by the softness and dry down of this. I love wearing makeup but no that I am COVID-19 bound, less is more. I love NARS anyway, but wow, I was not expecting this. I really thought it was going to be like a glowy type deal, this is perfect. It's not matte or super glowy it's just like second skin, soft to the touch, doesn't rub off all over the place. I really like it! This is always going to be in my makeup bag! :)
Simply the Best
LbCindy from Long Beach, CA
I have been wearing Pure Radiant Moisturizer for several years. Because I love makeup, I have tried numerous tinted moisturizers and liquid foundations. They sit unused. I always go back to my NARS. The shade Is a perfect match and my skin looks healthy and glowing. As I age I find less is more when it comes to makeup. NARS never lets me down. Perfection with SPF.
actually went an got another 1
selena from TN
sheer to light build able coverage. purchased in 2 shades for those days the sun has been my friend. some days i need a little lighter color than others this is the perfect product for my skin. i had recently been having all my makeup just lay on top and look cakey or uneven . i have large pore and normal slightly oily skin so i was struggling to find a product. this was the fix for all exfoliated and primed apply this and picture perfect skin all over again.
Danielle from Fort Worth, TX
I never leave reviews, but I love this stuff! I, for one, do not like the thick and cakey feeling of foundations for every day looks, so this tinted moisturizer is perfect. To me, it's got just as good of coverage as a lot of foundations and not too sheer where I actually feel like I'm covering up without drowning my skin. The SPF is nice also for being able to put something on to go to the pool or outside.
I was originally swayed to purchase the IT CC illuminating cream because Ulta was out of this product the day I went in and I Hated the IT CC so much I returned it and the NARS was backs in stock. I took it as a sign to try it and so happy I did!
Tinted moisturizer for dark skin, yes!
poshaly from Birmingham, Alabama
I was excited about this because I've had a rough time finding a tinted moisturizer for darker skin. This blended well and was easy to apply but it's hard to truly enjoy it when it all comes off on my mask. It's also minimum coverage so some darker spots will still show but it does give a nice fresh face look.
Great light coverage for warm months.
Bean from Chesapeake
Just enough light coverage to hide redness and uneven tones during hot summer months.
froggielorraine from Olympia, WA
I haven't worn tinted makeup in many years, but decided to try this one in the hopes it might even out my skin tone. I have dark hair and eyes, but pale skin and need a cool tone, so I ordered the color 0. I love it! It's a very cool, neutral shade and matches my skin perfectly. It goes on smoothly, covers well, and leaves no transition line under the jaw. And with SPF 30 sunblock? It's wonderful! Buy it. You'll be glad.
Never using foundation again!!
Bianca I from Dallas, Tx
Wow!!! I love this. The best thing about it is you can make it look like foundation if you wanted it too!!!
Best cosmetic purchase I've made.
Jean from Johnson County, Kansas
Buildable coverage and added sun protection--this is a no brainer!
Yes, but not from Ulta.
Kathy from Wayne, NJ
Use this product everyday as a moisturizer on my face.
