NEW NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation REVIEW

Hello, this is my first post on the MCR Beauty Club Blog.. hi there!

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Having been a fan of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation for a while, and a recent convert to the Radiant Creamy Concealer, and Tinted Moisturiser I heard about the new foundation which claims to give ‘Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear’ and had to try it out. This is a hybrid foundation, so needs to be shaken before use to activate. As an oily skinned gal, I thought this sounded perfect for me. And it’s..good!?

This foundation comes in frosted-matte glass packaging with a pump already attached (HALLELUJAH! Sheer Glow I’m looking at you!) and after some experimentation works better for me with a damp beauty sponge, rather than my trusty Sigma F80 foundation brush. I think because of the matte-ness of this foundation it needs some slip to give it some movement around the face, as the sales assistant told me ‘You only need one pump!’.

This foundation needs moisture underneath to give you some glow, a moisturiser or illuminating primer seems to work fine for me. But, I would worry that on dryer skins it would cling and not give much oomph. On my oily t-zone it works quite nicely on me when I need more coverage than usual, and is buildable to a medium-high coverage without too much layering. Leaving a nice polished base for the rest of my make up. It does have staying power, but I think ’16 hour wear’ is a bit of an exaggeration!

It’s a good foundation, but it doesn’t replace Sheer Glow for me, I’m afraid. Good effort though, NARS pal.

Have you tried the new NARS foundation, what did you think? Do you have anything else from NARS to recommend? I have my eye on a couple of the audacious lipsticks, and the new dual blushers.
