NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
For the past few years, I haven’t been much of a fan of high-end foundations. I’ve found that I just love so many at the drugstore/on the high street that I’d just rather not spend loads on an eh foundation. But I have been utterly obsessed with this NARS foundation for months now (it’s literally my favourite).
The Product: This NARS foundation is 30ml, costing around £34 a bottle. It’s described by NARS as “full, natural-looking coverage” with 16 hour wear. I have mine in the shade Light 4- Deauville.
Packaging: I pretty much love any NARS packaging, they always make their products look so sleek and pretty much perfect, but the rubber like material on the lid of the product (and on most of their products) gets SO dirty and is SO hard to clean!! (See the photo below). I’ve tried cleaning it with pretty much everything but it seems impossible. Please comment below if you’ve found the perfect method for cleaning your NARS products! Other than that I love the packaging, it isn’t too heavy either.
Applicator: The pump on the foundation is really good and distributes the perfect amount of product. However, once I was travelling with the foundation and I discovered that the product had leaked due to the pump coming out of place- thankfully my boyfriend came to the rescue and quickly fixed it but I’m not too sure if it’ll happen again (let’s hope not).
Formula: The formula of the foundation is very strange but I absolutely love it. It’s quite a thin liquid foundation, but when you apply it (I love using a Beauty Blender for a more natural finish) it is suddenly medium to full coverage. The NARS website states that only one pump is needed for your whole face but I definitely disagree, I always need at least 2 pumps to cover my face unfortunately 😦 . This foundation does not feel or look cakey on the skin, yet it covers pretty much all of my blemishes without having to use concealer. I find that the product can easily be built up for a more high-coverage finish.
Lasting power: As the name of the foundation suggests, this formula lasts all day on me ;). It’s such a perfect formula for both the day and night.
– The foundation comes in a wide range of shades and undertones.
-It has an amazing satin/dewy finish, which somehow suits my oily combination skin perfectly.
-It lasts ALL day.
-The packaging is hard to clean.
