It’s been a while since NARS launched a base product, and as I'm such a big fan of their Soft Matte Concealer and Sheer Glow Foundation, I knew I needed to check their newest launch; NARS Tinted Glow Booster out.
What is the NARS Tinted Glow Booster?
The NARS Tinted Glow Booster is a customisable complexion enhancer with long term skin benefits. It's been created to add a gorgeous glow, and soft focus effect to the skin, whilst also extending the wear of your makeup upto 16 hours.
It's described as being lightweight and layerable, and can be worn in a multitude of ways – alone, under your foundation, over your foundation and mixed with your foundation.
Featuring NARS’ exclusive Jojoba Complex Hydraglow Complex, a dynamic combination of Jojoba Elixir for deep nourishment, with Jojoba Gel for a dewy finish. Skin-tone coloured pearls help to brighten and illuminate skin for a naturally perfected, filtered look. Available in four shades.

The NARS Tinted Glow Booster is £28, contains 30ml and is available in just four shades; Kalvoya, Smos, Tangsi and Barbuda. It is a limited edition launch, and does feel like a strange product to launch at this time of the year. As a glow booster, you’d assume a summer launch would be more appropriate but instead it’s part of their current new collection.
The packaging is very NARS. A clear, angular glass bottle with a black plastic lid. It comes with a pump which will please NARS fans no end. They don’t provide pumps on their Sheer Glow Foundation, which causes a lot of frustration as we have to purchase the pump separately. There’s no extra pumps needed with the NARS Tinted Glow Booster, so no extra costs.
This product has launched as part of their base collection, but it doesn’t actually offer any coverage as such. Four shades feels a little stingy in all honesty, but as it is a glow enhancer rather than a foundation, I feel like more skin tones can make the shades work for them.
Products like this are good to own in your collection, as you can use them for a multitude of uses. I think I’d really enjoying using the Glow Booster mixed with my existing foundations, for an amped up glow but I like that you can also choose to wear it under or foundation too.
