I hadn't planned on writing this post and then this morning when I was trying my hardest to eek the last bit of product out of the tiny sample jar I picked up at Nordstrom last weekend, I figured I should own up to it.
It's getting warmer and going into spring/summer, I'm going to have to find a different foundation routine. I've been using Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation all winter and it has been fabulous. But I think it's going to be too emollient for warm weather.
I'd heard great things about the Nars tinted moisturizer, so last week at Nordstrom I picked up a sample of Finland (the lightest shade). I've been burned before many times with tinted moisturizer, but I have to say that this product is phenomenal. Unfortunately it is priced accordingly at $42. It's in wide release now, so you can get it just about anywhere - Sephora, Beauty.com, etc.
The product comes in a whopping 9 shades, so you shouldn't have trouble finding a shade that works for you. This is especially helpful if you, like me, have been burned before by tinted moisturizers that just don't work on your skin tone. *cough* Origins VitaZing moisturizer *cough*.
The coverage from this product is on par with a foundation. And it has a great level of SPF and it performs well as a moisturizer. And a little goes a long way. The sample I had was very small and yet I got three applications out of it.
And now, look at the pretty pictures from the press release:
