My skin’s not doing so good these days. Truth time? I haven’t been eating as well as I should — my migraine meds give me zero appetite — so I sometimes eat things like Snickers or Baked Lays for dinner. Also I’ve started a new birth control pill (wishful thinking?). So I broke out in this weird, fine rash, and my skin’s been kinda sickly-sallow. I’ve been totally overbooked with meetings and Bobina things for the past couple weeks, so I was desperate for something to quickly give me perfect, radiant, Kerry Washington -in-Scandal skin. I zeroed in on Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($42), which the fab brand launched this spring. I’d been hearing raves about this product for months, and yet I’d always been kinda wedded to Laura Mercier. But new year, new me, new tinted moisturizer. GIRLS. Please look at what this stuff did to my troubled skin:
Granted, I took this with my iPhone in my poorly lit bathroom, but look at how glowy and smooth my skin looks! And EVEN! You don’t see a trace of the icky brown spots my rash left behind. Plus, I can barely even feel that it’s there, which is genius. My shade is Annapurna, but there are hues that run the brown skin gamut…and thank god, because most tinted moisturizers don’t. It’s also spiked with SPF 30 and various uber-moisturizing, skin-nurturing botanicals — hence the luminosity. This might be my favorite product of the season.
