NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30/PA+++

Hello glow!

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is a lightweight tinted moisturizer with an SPF 30 and an oil free formula with a soft focused glow. Supposedly it even helps reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation and dark spots too in as little as four weeks (eep jumped the shark on that I think but hey, could work!).

It’s available in nine shades for $42 and will be exclusive to Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com this Spring (I imagine you’ll see a larger launch in the Summer).

P.S. Gossip Girl is a snooze-fest lately and I hear whispers of cancellation but props for including one of my fav songs in a recent eppy!

What? Had to include Kermit…it just makes the song!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Wow I’m surprised NARS is a little late on the TM train… I’m actually VERY surprised he didn’t come out with a BB Cream for Spring since he claims to have a “deep interest in Japan”…hmmmmmmmmmm…

  • Amy

    I can’t wait for the review! I have some hyperpigmentation on my forehead due to not wearing sunscreen as a kid (bad me!). Hope this works 😀

    Hey!!! this came out yesterday at nordies (I got so excited) and already ordered it in “Alaska”…I called the store in NY and the artist that its the most universal and populare shade….I can’t wait!!!

      • sarah

        as soon as I get it I will let you know; I’m a psycho right now tracking it on ups

        • the Muse

          haha ;-D have fun, I stalked my old ups guy so much he once asked me out to dinner hehe!

  • Jessica

    I ordered it too in Alaska, hoping that’s my shade, I just got so excited and the second I saw nordstroms comment on twitter that it was available, I jumped in!! I’m sure this will just further my obsession with all things NARS!!

    Just received this in the mail yesterday!… i ordered it in alaska, and at first i thought it was going to be a little to dark and yellow. I would say i am NC20 especially in the winter, It might be a tinge to dark, but it actually matches my body and neck really well so my face looks really even. Other than that the formula is great, smells pleasant and faint, evens out skin, no sparkles, SPF30! Just be careful cause this color is a bit darker than expected.

    • Cj

      Uhh Alaska isn’t the lightest color right? I can’t really tell from the swatches lol

      • Jen

        No i think one called finland is the lightest, i will get that one next time probably
