NARS new tinted moisturiser has shot right to the very top of my ‘favourites’ list. I adore it. It gives the fresh and dewy finish that I love so much, but it’s not heavy or greasy. It applies reasonably well on cleansed skin (usually I’d apply moisturiser before tinted moisturiser, but with this one I have just been using a serum) and it has a built-in sunscreen.
The formula is oil-free yet still manages to feel hydrating, and the effects are long-lasting – a good full working day’s worth of moisture without any patchiness or sliding around. In terms of coverage, NARS market this is being “super sheer and translucent”, but I actually think that it’s quite substantial! Perhaps because it’s a very buildable formula I apply more where I need it, I’m not sure, but I noted on the very first use that I found the coverage to be good. It’s also, as I have already mentioned, really luminous without being at all greasy. Top marks all round, really!
Some little technical bits for you; the formula has ingredients that can help to encourage natural cell renewal; Oceana Saffron and Galaxaura. Satisfyingly exotic… There’s also a Vitamin C derivative that helps to protect the skin against free-radical damage, and the SPF protects against both UVB and UVA rays. The Tinted Moisturiser smells incredible (another perk, by my standards!) and the fragrance is 100% naturally derived – Peony, Violet and Rose Water. I thought that it smelt of oranges, which just goes to show how ridiculously poor my nose is at times!
I have been wearing “Alaska” (shade 2) every day for the past couple of weeks and I can’t find anything I don’t like about it. It’s amazing and a sure-fire recommendation! If you’d like to see it “in action”, I’m wearing it in my cooking video that published last week. It’ll also be in a makeup video very soon – perhaps I’ll video it tomorrow! There’s a guide to the shades printed below.
