When word of this hit the internet that NARS was FINALLY releasing a Tinted Moisturizer to the make up market well "Ecstatic" is a word that can adequately describe how I felt on this long awaited launch
I've used this for about 3 weeks now and have finally come to an opinion. I have read the upcoming growing amount of *glowing* reviews for this product but honestly, initially it was not love.
( Trust me, I was the MOST surprised at this realization)
Whatever foundations I would apply with powder by 6 hours time the area looked like it was dry, separating, and you can detect the powder easily
With this Tinted MOISTURIZER the 1 patch of my face stays looking hydrated and just normal! the whole day. This factor I love.
So everything so far sounds good, sounds like NARS! So why didn't I love it??
Keep on trucking! I wasn't going to give up on this just yet! I have tried a few brushes with this and have settled that the Sephora Platinum Airbrush 55 as my method of choice.
The HD air brush from Sephora provides a more sheer application that looks more skin like, just as glowy, and makes my skin still feel comfortable and breathable!
I also loved the finish with the beauty blender! A touch more sheer then the brush, but still so lovely!
I knew NARS wouldn't let me down!
The price is $42 in the US, which is LM's price category, aka foundation category, but again, the coverage is quite high for a TM, you do not require as much product.
I have the shade Alaska (shade 2) and it's a tiny bit too dark for me at the moment but 70% of the year it should be fine. I am an NC 25 most of the year.
