Holy Grail -- Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

If you follow me on Instagram, then you will know how obsessed I have been with Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 in St. Mortiz. It has been on my face 95% of the time since I purchased it online from Sephora a month ago.

What I Love.

No Side Affects. When I was experiencing weekly breakouts on my chin, I avoided layering my face with anything unnecessary, and so that meant no foundation, bb cream, etc.,  unless it was an extremely special occasion (2-4 times a month max). Recently, when I started experiencing less breakouts, I wanted to venture into the something that would quickly and easily provide an even base all the while maintaining my no make-up makeup look.

Super Pigmented Radiance! Most of the time, tinted moisturizers provide light coverage, but this Nars Tinted Moisturizer provides great buildable light to medium dewy coverage, which is so perfect for summer. It evens out my complexion without making it look like I have anything on. I love how it minimizes the redness around my nose and chin where I have a great deal of acne scars. It has been my go-to summer base, after I apply a moisturizing serum (my favorite right now is Tula Probioitic Technology - review to come). After I apply, my skin is left looking evened-out, dewy, but still natural.

Feather-weight! The Nars Tinted Moisturizer formula feels super light weight -- almost undetectable. I have been using it in place of my regular daytime SPF moisturizer, 3LAB SPF 50 (but still use for my neck). It feels even lighten than a sunblock. I like how it dries somewhat and can be worn without a powder when I am in a rush. If I have time, I like to set my T-zone, and my undereyes, especially, if I highlight with concealer.

Travel-size. I do not have many opportunities to shop in-store, so I was very grateful that Nars sells a travel-size in their St. Mortiz shade, which just so happened to be my shade (medium with a yellow undertone). I am not sure if the Nars storefronts sell other shades in travel size, but they are super convenient! I hypothesize that come winter, I will have to switch to a lighter shade, but at least I know I will use up all of this St. Moritz shade that matches my summer complexion.

Reasonable Price. I bought the .58oz travel size for $16, and the 1.9 oz retails for $43. I think once Fall hits, I will spring for the larger size in a lighter shade.

This was my first Nars purchase ever, and I am definitely a fan. I can't wait to try more like their new Luminous foundation.
