I recently popped into Sephora to check out a few things. Half the time I go in there I never know what I’m looking for-which is how I always end up spending too much money- however this weekend I was looking for a new foundation. I’ve been using the liquid Maybelline fit me in shade 360 but it wasn’t doing the trick for me anymore. I like a natural sheer look and the Maybelline gave me this full overage that was thick with orange undertone and it was not very flattering. I noticed I was gravitating towards the powder version but during the winter months powder can often make your face dry. Essentially I wanted a liquid that gave me the exact same coverage as my Maybelline fit me powder and I found just the thing. I’ve been a fan of Nars products ever since I bought the Nars blush in Amour. Too die for!! Nars was the first counter I went to when I walked into Sephora and I bought the shade Seychelles which matches my skin perfectly. For those of you who don’t know tinted moisturizers are a lot like bb creams but they tend to have a better range of colors for those of us with darker skin. The Nars tinted moisturizer gives this great sheen and glow to my skin and what I love most is that I can use my fit me powder to set my makeup after.
When you apply it it feels like your applying lotion, it’s practically weightless. It has a lot of SPF in it and has actually helped clear my skin.I will say that because of the SPF it does show a little flashy in photos, so you have to be conscious of that when you’re taking pictures at night time. I have some photos below of me in the daytime and it looks like my skin is glowing!
It was $46 which is expensive for a moisturizer but whenever you buy Nars you know it’s going to be a pretty penny. It’s really hard to find a tinted moisturizer in my shade, because companies never have a wide range so I didn’t mind spending the extra money for this.
What foundation do you use? Do you prefer foundation or tinted moisturizers?
