Long gone are the days of your foundation entering the room before you do, and if yours is—it’s the perfect time to make the switch. Spring is drawing swiftly upon us, which is usually about bright, fresh, and glowy skin—and you’re probably not going to get that look with a full coverage foundation. Start saying your goodbyes now!
Make way for NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, and it’s just that—purely radiant—with an SPF 30 to protect you on all those days where you spend more time running around town than you’d really want to. That is, unless it’s running indoors to pick up this new Nordstrom exclusive product—and did you know they even have ‘Beauty Stylists’ now? As in, your own personal beauty shopper? Check that service out next time you’re there, it’s amaze!
As an NW20, I converted to Pure Radiant shade Alaska, and while I was initially worried that it would be too dark for my fair skin, it was almost like magic as I applied it. It didn’t settle in my pores, it sat right on top and gave my skin the kind of radiant glow that I often employ an army of luminizers to do! My skin felt and looked so perfectly hydrated for the day, that I was in disbelief. Zero oxidation (nothing worse than having your face change colors when you least expect it), and the mineral-rich seawater in this baby did its job. Less oil slick, and more moisture—now that’s the ticket! With nine shades available, head into Nordies and get color-matched, even grab a sample if you’re just not sure if it’s really for you yet!
Bottom Line: Use this for beautiful, sheer color that keeps skin moist and looking fresh all day.

UPDATE: Reader Marie requested a swatch of Alaska on my hand. Please note that I’m an NW20, but my arms and hands are not! I have a lot of redness in my face thanks to my Irish heritage, but this shade actually does a great job of toning down that red in my facial skin. You’ll look at this swatch and think NO WAY! But the way it looks on my pasty hand is not indicative of how it looks on my face.
