First Impression: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my First Impressions of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Terre Neuve! I picked up a little tester pot of this product from Mecca Cosmetica in Auckland when I was looking for primers for my NARS Sheer Glow.  

What Is It?
"Your skin – almost bare, but better. This advanced, oil-free formula provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four weeks. Infused with lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients to immediately help thirsty skin feel hydrated. Kopara from French Polynesia and mineral rich seawater revive and re-mineralize skin for a softer, smoother, and brighter natural glow. Skin is transported.
  • Advanced sun protection
  • Hydrates and helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots for a brighter natural glow
  • Oil-free. Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic. Synthetic fragrance free.

Consumer Testing Results:
  • 84% felt their skin was more radiant and luminous
  • 81% felt the product smoothed out the surface of their skin
  • 81% felt the product gave them immediate hydration" (1)

It has a regular moisturizer consistency, not too thick and not too thin! It's quite pale, but is marketed as a pink toned product (Lightest with neutral pink undertone) but it seems relatively neutral/yellow to me. I probably wouldn't recommend this colour to cool toned Princesses.
This looks like an amazing match on camera, but in real life it's just a touch too dark. I would still wear it for my lazy face though, because in real life your face doesn't match your neck perfectly!

This Tinted Moisturizer has beautiful sheer coverage, and covers my redness, pores and minor scarring really well! I do agree with the claims that it looks like your skin but better, and that it also made my skin feel really lovely. I'm really interested in the claim that it reduces scarring and hyper-pigmentation after four weeks of use, but since I only have a little pot I don't have four weeks worth of product to test that claim.

Would I Purchase This?
I really love this product, but at $66NZD it's quite pricey! There's also another colour called Finland that I want to have a look at since it's meant to be Lightest with Neutral Yellow undertones, but I think it's a really great product, that does what it claims (so far anyway) so I may be purchasing it at a later and better financed date!

I hope you Princesses enjoyed this review! If you get the chance to sample this product, go for it, because it is one beautiful thing! ^.^
