NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (Review on dry skin)

The fact that this product hasn’t featured on Jellybluesblog before now is baffling…

I love NARS Cosmetics. Their Audacious Lipsticks have one of the best formulations – their Wanted Eyeshadow Palette is up there as one of my favourites, and the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation has also been one of my staples for absolutely ages. I have a great deal of confidence within the brand – it’s just a shame that since expanding to China, they are no longer cruelty-free and therefore, animal-friendly.

Like many ‘tinted moisturisers’ on the market, the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 and PA+++ is not exactly a ‘tinted moisturiser as such’. More a foundation if truth be told.

Its coverage is light, natural and very in-line with the whole ‘no-makeup, makeup’ trend. One’s natural skin texture is definitely visible when wearing this product, although your complexion is more even in tone and brighter with regards to dark spots and hyperpigmentation.



To blend and apply, I must say that this product is very similar to a standard, liquid-foundation in my opinion. I know that I always like to first place a fair amount of this on the back of my hand – apply dots around my face and then use a dampened BeautyBlender to blend and press this product into my skin for the most natural and flawless finish. On those more humid, stuffier days – when I really can’t be bothered to slather and suffocate my face with makeup, this product works great.

With a gel-like, hydrating texture and consistency, I really like how this product feels on my skin, as it does not accentuate any larger pores, fine lines or an uneven skin tone either. Of course, this product is not going to give one a completely flawless base, as it is only a tinted moisturiser at the end of the day. Although, I must also say that I enjoy using this product on those more casual, lazier days!!


Love, Jess
