Easy Perfection: Nars Tinted Moisturizer

This will not come as a surprise since I run a beauty blog, but I love playing with makeup. I tend to wear a full face to work every day, although mainly a natural and professional look, and I love to experiment in the weekend. Still, there are days when you just don’t want to bother. Even though I know it makes little sense, I can feel very self-conscious about the redness in my cheeks at times and don’t always feel like skipping my base… which is were Nars’ Tinted Moisturizer comes in.

The Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is a light-weight base that combines hydration for your skin and a broad spectrum SPF 30 sun protection with a thin veil of color. It comes in a travel-friendly and convenient 50 ml tube which retails for $43/£28/€38.

I was color-matched at a Nars counter to the shade Finland Light 1, a light shade with a balance of yellow and pink undertones. It works well for me now in the depths of winter, although I will probably need to go up a shade for summer.

You apply this like you would any cream, just spread a little over your face using your fingers. The hydrating properties make this feel really comfortable and light. My dryer skin does need some extra moisture, so I pop it on over my day cream. If you have oily or normal skin, this could be the only product you need in the morning.

As you can see, the coverage is very light and natural. It covers redness very well,  but freckles will still show through a little. I love the versatility of this product; in the picture above I am only wearing the tinted moisturizer but in the image below I have combined it with some concealer and powder to create a good base for a full face.

I really love the Nars Tinted Moisturizer: it is convenient and easy but provides excellent results. It might be a bit pricy for some, but definitely worth it and you do get 50 ml as opposed to the usual 30 ml found in foundation.


Het zal jullie niet verrassen dat ik het leuk vind om met make-up te spelen, ik heb tenslotte een beauty blog. Ik draag altijd make-up naar mijn werk, hoewel ik dan vaak kies voor een natuurlijke en professionele uitstraling, en in het weekend probeer ik graag iets nieuws. Maar er zijn natuurlijk altijd dagen dat je gewoon geen zin hebt in gedoe. Ik voel me soms ongemakkelijk over de roodheid in mijn wangen en vind het niet altijd fijn om zonder make-up naar buiten te gaan… en dat is waar de Nars Tinted Moisturizer geweldig is.

De Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser is een lichte basis die hydratatie voor de huid en een goede zonnebescherming van SPF30 combineert met een hint kleur. Het komt in een handige en reisvriendelijke tube van 50 ml voor €38.

Bij de Nars balie in San Fransisco werd mij de kleur Finland Light 1 aangeraden, een lichte kleur met een balans tussen roze en gele ondertonen. Een geweldige winter-kleur voor mijn huid, maar in de zomer moet ik waarschijnlijk een tintje donkerer hebben. Nars is helaas in Nederland niet te koop in de winkel, maar kan wel bestelt worden via de webshop. Het beste is om in het buitenland de kleur te laten bepalen, maar de beschrijvingen op de site zijn wel uitgebreid.

Je brengt dit gewoon aan als een dagcrème, breng een beetje aan op je gezicht en verspreid het met je vingers. De hydraterende eigenschappen zorgen ervoor dat de Nars Tinted Moisturizer comfortabel en licht aanvoelt. Mijn droge huid heeft wel extra vocht nodig dus ik breng dit aan over mijn gewone dagcreme. Als je een vette of normale huid hebt, dan is dit het enige product dat je nodig hebt.

Zoals je kunt zien is de dekking heel licht en natuurlijk. Het bedekt roodheid heel goed maar sproetjes zijn nog wel te zien. Ik vind het een heel veelzijdig product; in de foto hierboven draag ik alleen de Tinted Moisturizer maar in de foto hieronder heb ik het gecombineerd met een beetje concealer en poeder om een goede basis te creëren voor een volledig gezicht.

Ik ben echt dol op de Nars Tinted Moisturizer: makkelijk en snel maar met geweldige resultaten. De prijs is voor sommigen misschien wat hoog, maar het product is het zeker waard en je krijgt 50 ml in plaats van de voor foundation gebruikelijke 30 ml.

    I’ve been so impatient to try this, I almost ordered it online based on color swatches. I can’t stand foundation, so I love a good TM!

      Really?! might be a bit tricky getting the color right, although TM’s are much more forgiving 🙂
      It is lovely though 😀

    Oh, this looks lovely! I usually use a BB cream in the morning that is pretty full coverage but not as much as a foundation.
    Also, you look wonderful! ♥

      Nars is just amazing 😀
      I usually prefer medium coverage as well, but this is just so easy for those days when I can’t be bothered. And I agree, this would make an ideal summer base 😀

    This looks beautiful on your skin, I’ve got the Mac BB cream which works really well for those days when you don’t want to wear a full face. It’s great for SPF protection too.xx

      I am afraid MAC foundations just don’t seem to work with my skin. They are very drying and cause break outs 😦 xxx

        Oh no!! Bare Minerals messes my skin up!! I haven’t tried any of their other foundations, but the Mac BB cream works really well for me. I’ve heard the new Bobbi Brown BB cream is pretty good too, I might have to try that in the summer time.xx
