I'm not someone who likes to wear heavy foundation every day. Actually, I kind of hate the way most foundations feel on my face like the Kat Von D Tattoo Foundation. It feels heavy, I know it's there and it gets cakey throughout the day if my skin isn't in perfect condition. On most days, I just opt for a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer like the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.

I've been wearing the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer on a day to day basis for a few weeks now. I have some complaints about this but I still like it enough to wear it pretty much everyday. The shade I wear is Finland, which is the lightest shade.

Good things:
  • It's a medium coverage, but I don't find that you can build it more than that, but since it's a tinted moisturizer, why would you?
  • It blends really well.
  • It really feels like you aren't wearing anything after it dries down.
  • It lasts all day without becoming blotchy.
The bad:
  • It sinks into pores, even with a pore smoothing primer.
  • It can make my skin look drier.
  • It's very yellow-toned even though I got a shade listed as neutral.
  • It doesn't hydrate, it seems to dry me out.
I'm a little annoyed at the fact that it's drying out my skin and if I don't really hydrate my skin before applying it, it still looks dry. I can't totally blame this product though. While I want it to be more moisturizing, my skin is SO dry because it's winter that none of my foundations are working for me.

If I don't balance out the yellow tone with a pink-toned powder, I look like Bart Simpson, which is never a good look. That's honestly what annoys me most.

I'm debating on returning it and trying something else. I hate returning things, but I'm so frustrated.

This sounds like a negative review, but I'm really trying to not make it that way. The coverage is nice, it blends so well and it's totally weightless. It wears off evenly and it just feels good on your skin. 
It's really a good product.

I recommend trying it IF you go to the store and swatch it to make sure it matches you. Don't be a Simpson. I recommend grabbing a sample and trying it out to make sure it works for you. If you have normal-oily skin, it'll probably be great for you. 

Thanks for reading!
