NARS 'Pure Radiant' Tinted Moisturizer - Page 5

i think one spf on top of another is just too much for any skin, oily especially

For me, tinted moisturizers always felt kind of oily and slick. Before I tried this one, I used Bobbi Brown's tinted moisturizer and it felt the same. But then again, I've always just used light moisturizers and hate the feeling of heavy moisturizers. So maybe it's just me. I think it takes some getting used to because I've been using it for a while now and the slickness doesn't really bother me anymore. So I guess it's something that one can get used it. =) 

 

I find that's true of Nars foundations in general. I kind of like that about them.

Yeah, I sometimes double up (use a foundation or moisturizer with SPF over a "real" sun screen), but my base is always a physical rather than a chemical sunscreen, as I find those to be a lot less oily (at least the one I use). Unless you really love the product, there's not much use combining something that has built in SPF with a sunscreen- SPF doesn't compound (you just get the benefit of the highest one you're wearing) and with foundations/ tinted moisturizers that have it built in, you wouldn't use enough for it to be an effective sunscreen.

This my HG foundation! :)  I think it would be perfect if it came in a couple shades lighter and a couple of shades darker. I'm around NC10 and Finland is a tiny bit too dark.  I have to really blend to make sure i don't walk out the door with the dreaded line.  Overall, I love it.  It's a must have!  Now, i'm on search for the perfect medium coverage for around that time of month :O)

When looking for information about the Light Optimizing primer, I found something else. It seems NARS will release 2 new shades of Tinted Moisturizers some time next year:

- Light 0: Terre Neuve

- Light 3: Groenland

 

Since the FDA's regulations about products containing sunscreen have been changed, all products offering UVB and UVA protection are now called "broad spectrum" (with SPF still indicated), and packaging must include instructions and warnings.

Marketing start date is recent, and packaging indicate that it's compliant with new regulations, so I guess those are new shades, not preliminary shades that were abandoned before it went into production.

I am so happy about Light 0 Terre Neuve, as many people (I included) were asking for a lighter shade. I love it when a company takes customers' request into account. Another reason to love NARS. :)

The lightest shade is called Terre Neuve? As in Newfoundland, the province next to where most of my family was born? It's like this shade was made for me... Ironically, I've also been fascinated by Greenland for no reason I've ever been able to figure out.

Ha, my dad was stationed in Greenland around the time I was born! Heh.

Topic? So happy NARS are going to put out a lighter shade of their TM. greengrin.gifgreengrin.gif

That's not a dumb question at all. ;) The order should be:

 

Terre-Neuve (Light 0)

Finland (Light 1)

Alaska (Light 2)

Groenland (Light 3)

St. Moritz (Medium 1)

Annapurna (Medium 2)

Cuba (Medium 3)

Malaga (Medium/Dark 1)

Seychelles (Medium /Dark 2)

Martinique (Medium/Dark 3)

Polynesia (Dark 1)

This is my first post. Just wanted to say thanks for info on the new tinted moisturizer colors. I have very fair skin and the Finland is a touch to dark for me. I have to blend very well. I called Nars to see when it would be out for sale. They told me march 1.

Thanks I have been using my beauty blender SK peep knock off and it works like a charm, then blend with a BE buki.  I am between Finland and Alaska right now, have both b/c my skin is much paler in the winter, but I like the yellow tint in the Alaska.  This is definitely my favorite TM and great base when I don't want full coverage.  I like the NARS firming when I want fuller coverage.  (I think I am becoming a NARS foundation addict)

Thanks for the information! I'm not sure if that date will be the same for Canada, although Nars doesn't tend to have a big difference between US and international release dates, unlike some brands *cough* CHANEL *cough*. March would be perfect for me, because it's generally when my skin looks its most light-deprived and dullest, so the beautiful radiance that this imparts will be especially welcome. I tried out Finland, but found it was a little dark for me. I could probably wear it, but I have the feeling that Terre Neuve would be a better match.

 

My MUA had said it could be applied with fingers (like a lot of Nars products), but I'll probably also try blending it with the UD Optical Blending Brush. I find that little baby does wonders with virtually every type of foundation.

post #134 of 191

Will Light0 come out on March 1st?

I didn't know that!! I'll def. get one because Finland is little dark for me.:(

post #135 of 191

ADORE this product! I have it in Cuba which looks great on me since I have warm & yellow undertones. Blends easy, covers enough! If I want a lot of coverage I dash a little of my MUFE's Duo Mat on top & my skin looks flawless! eyelove.gif

NARS hasn't announced the new shades yet, they probably haven't sent press samples for the moment (or they demanded that reviews/swatches be published only after the official release date), and the new shades will be available in early march, so that's why you can't find swatches.

I guess we should just wait. ;)

Hey Katred!!!

 

Definitely second the UD Optical Blurring Brush.  It works amazingly with all of my liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers.  Bought a backup of it.

 

Regarding the new TM shades, I really wish NARS would release a shade in between Martinique and Polynesia (cool tone dark skins) and another between Malaga and Cuba (for warm tone dark skins). I'm still loving my Martinique in the fall/winter and Polynesia for summer.

post #139 of 191

I second/third that optical brush.  The foundation was crap on me, but that brush was awesome.

I wish it was availible but it shows it will ship by march 1. But the color terre neuve is supposed to be lighter than finland but the swatch makes it look darker. Now in nervous. When I called Nars they said there web site will have it March 1 and Sephora usually gets the new products about 2 weeks later.
post #143 of 191

Ooops I didn't see that. :/ Sorry for the misleading news.

And thank you for the correction. ;)

 

I don't trust those types of color swatches, but you're right, they make Terre-Neuve look darker than Finland. I hope Light 0 isn't Light 1.5 in disguise. :/

post #144 of 191
I was so exited I was hoping it was coming out sooner. I have to wait till sephora gets it cause I have about $100 in store credit I gotta use I also wanna try on the color. I love this tinted moisturizer finland was just to dark.
post #145 of 191

Is it true Teree Neuve is lighter shade than Finland?

Based on NM's website, even Groenland is lighter than TN. Stupid color swatches! :S

post #146 of 191

Well, logic dictates that Light 0 is lighter than Light 1, etc... :P I don't know what's the deal with Neiman Marcus colors. I guess we better wait for March 1st. ;)

I talked with my MUA today and he said the new shades of TM are coming out soon (which means it's official info now!).

And another news is a new primer will be released too! (def. after the summer collection, but he didn't know an exact launch date)
