I should probably outline a few options in this post for fairness, but to be honest after seeing this foundation in an article in The Sunday Times Style magazine (after the a journalist lost her make-up bag on the train and had to basically buy her whole kit again!!!) to trying it for myself – I have literally found the perfect summer foundation!
Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 by NARS offers a lightweight coverage but slightly buildable and leaves a lovely dewy finish. Its oil free and suitable for all skin types, hydrates thirsty skin, helps reduce appearance of dark spots and discolouration from hyperpigmentation and obscures fine lines, pores and imperfections, plus a high SPF than most foundations – what more could you need! I wanted a lighter coverage for summer and this is literally perfection. The dewy finish described to me by the sales lady is not over the top and I can still set this in with my Bourjois Healthy Radiance powder which sits lovely on top. I preferred this finish to their velvet matte which I felt was too heavy for me and very ‘cake’ like. I had to go to 3 stores to find my shade Terre Neuve the lightest shade, but it was definitely worth it!
