Last week I was sent a couple of samples of ESPA's Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser*. It's a new release and I was very happy to try it out as I've only ever loved ESPA's skincare products, but this did mean that I had quite high expectations! Luckily, I haven't been disappointed and I've really enjoyed trying out ESPA's Tinted Moisturiser. I recieved the lighter two shades (out of four) - Nude and Blush - which are both swatched against my skin in the image below.

What you can probably se is that Nude is a much better colour match for me than Blush. Nude is quite a light shade, although it certainly isn't very fair, that has a cool undertone (whereas Blush is better for those with a medium complexion with pink undertones). It was easy to blend with my fingers but also works quite well with a buffing brush. It left a pretty seamless finish on my skin and didn't sink into my pores throughout the day. I've included photos of me wearing Nude so that you can get an idea of the colour and coverage.

Below you can see what ESPA's Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser* in the shade Nude (01) looks like on my skin. In the first photo all I'm wearing on my skin is ESPA's Tinted Moisturiser, and you can see that it covers general redness but not blemishes. In the second photo you can see what my finished makeup looks like when I'm wearing ESPA's Tinted Moisturiser as my base (with no concealer, apart from under my eyes).

Overall, I find that ESPA's Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturser* is a nice choice for everyday wear as it feels really light on my skin, is really easy to apply and lasts throughout the day. It doesn't, however, conceal blemishes very well as it only offers very light coverage. I find the finish is very flattering on my combination skin; it doesn't cling to dry patches but equally doesn't leave me looking too shiny. For my preferred look I would probably add some powder to my t-zone, and this does help keep my base from look dewy rather than shiny throughout the day. All in all, I really like this Tinted Moisturiser, and the shade 01 Nude is a relatively good match for my fair-light skin tone. I'd definitely keep reaching for this and I'm actually considering purchasing the full size product as I think that it performs very well, even at it's luxury price point. If you're looking for a lightweight, natural looking base that will subtly blur imperfections and mask redness then ESPA's Tinted Moisturiser is a really great option.

You can find all four shades of ESPA's Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser* online for £32.00*


  1. I usually end up adding a powder to the center of my face with any liquid makeup, too. Lovely - adds just a blur of colour :)

  3. I wanted to love this (as I do most ESPA products) but it doesn't seem to do anything for my oily skin. Looks good on yours though.
