As a makeup novice, I take advantage of free makeup classes at my local Sephora. Even though I keep beauty essentials in the office, a foundation is not one. Since I don’t wear makeup to work, the specialist did a color match with the SEPHORA + PANTONE COLOR IQ to provide the best match for my skin. After testing 3-4 parts of my face, I matched with several foundations and tinted moisturizers. The one that matched best was the NARS Pure Radiant tinted moisturizer color match in Malaga. If you’ve been looking for a black girl friendly foundation, read on for my full NARS Tinted Moisturizer review.

Overall NARS Tinted Moisturizer Review
The traveler in me loves that the NARS tinted moisturizer shade names are based on cities from around the world. I really like the light coverage it gives for my combination skin and my face feels hydrated after application. Because of the SPF, I felt a slight tingle, but it went away after a few minutes. Since it comes in darker colors, I am looking forward to using the NARS tinted moisturizer in the warmer months.
