NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer has released at Nordstrom Online. 
According to what I was told by the Live Representative, It is set to launch at Nordstrom stores on Feb1.

 It will be launched exclusively to Nordstrom first and then advance to other department stores.

I just happened to surf the Nordstrom website yesterday (Saturday) and noticed that the Twelve Oaks Mall Nordstrom in Novi, Mi had it in stores already, I called to make sure it was available before making the drive.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer comes in 9 available shades and they are, Alaska, Finland, St. Moritz, Annapurna, Malaga, Cuba, Martinique, Seychelles and Polynesia. 
It's an oil free formula with SPF 30 (definitely a plus), it's said to contain natural botanicals and minerals which would help reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation and dark spots in just 4 weeks! 

Thats a big claim, so we'll see...

Here are some swatches of the last 3 darkest shades...
I requested samples of all the shades but unfortunately, they ran out of the little sample bottles.

Polynesia is the darkest and also the one that matched my skin best...
Martinique comes before Polynesia and then Seychelles.

Seychelles and Martinique looks quite similar but Martinique had more red undertones and Seychelles is yellow.

So far so good, I'm liking it. I haven't had to best luck with tinted moisturizers so I hope this works out.
It currently retails for $42 at Nordstrom online.

What are your thoughts?



  1. Oh, I'd be interested to hear about this and if it lived up to those claims. Though, they could stand to add a few more shades :-/

    1. I know, they definitely need a few more shades but the cool thing about tinted moisturizers though is that they blend in pretty nicely into the skin, but I know for sure that a few people will have some issues trying to find a shade match.

  2. I can' t wait to try the out. We will have it sometime in March... Yeah!!! Please let me know how it wears. You get the best products:). Erica

    1. Thank you Erica! I will do an in depth review for sure.

  3. I love how the color names are countries. Tres cute! I can't wait to try this. I'm not a foundation wearer so I love tinted moisturizers. Wooo hoooo!

  4. Thanks for sharing,I wanna try this,think Martinique may suit me will have2go check in person

  5. wondering what shade would suit me i'm barcelona is sheer glow/nc40 in MAC?

    1. Hi honey!! I know a friend that wears Barcelona in Sheer Glow and she got matched with Annapurna. But to be sure, go to the Nordstrom website and click on the tinted moisturizer, after you click there will be an option to chat with a beauty specialist, they will be able to help you more :)

  6. The order you have the shades in is off a bit. Malaga and Seychelles come between Cuba and Martinique according to the NARS website.

    1. Thank you for letting me know. I got some wrong information from the Nordstrom representatives... I will update this post soon.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I appreciate your comments :)
