    Flawless foundation!

    I have this foundation in Valencia and it's absolutely flawless! I can use it for any event, for formal events or just everyday looks because it's so light weight. I would just be careful in applying too much because it can soak into your pores and look a little cakey.

    Makes my skin look like BUTTER

    I have raved about this foundation and I will continue for the rest of my life. I have dry skin and this foundation sits SO beautifully on, it's long lasting and the finish looks just like skin. It's a med buildable coverage so it will cover acne and redness leaving a beautiful smooth canvas. I have never tried such an incredible foundation and I always recommend it to people

    Not for the dry skin

    Overall I have enjoyed using this foundation, however, it is not quite as described. When firstly applicated it gives really good coverage without having to layer it too much. The only problem that I had was that it didn't look radiant or glowy on my skin, it was actually matte! And at the evening it looked so dry that I was unbelievably happy when I finally took it off.
    This foundation might be a great option for combo or oily skin, but it won't work on the dry skin.

    Works well for dry skin

    This is pricy but it is one of the only foundations that has worked with my sensitive skin. It is good for dry skin and leaves the skin looking plump and healthy.

    The best foundation ever!

    This is absolutely one of the best foundations I've ever used. It's so smooth, creamy, and blendable. It leaves my skin looking so natural, yet covers all my flaws seamlessly. It gives me a beautiful, radiant glow and lasts all day. It never clings to dry patches, it never irritates my acne prone skin, and it never feels heavy or greasy on my skin. I would definitely recommend this one because it has become one of my all-time favorite products.

    Hello Radiance!

    I love how it covers my skin and looks so natural! All throughout the day my face really does look radiant and no creases or shine! Coverage is wonderful, easy to spread and a little goes a long way! Hurray for this one!

    Best Foundation from NARS thus far

    I have tried pretty much every NARS foundation before this formula. All Day Luminous was an absolute disaster on my skin as it creased in every line on my face (and I'm in my 20s!), Sheer Glow wasn't too bad but it definitely was not glowy, more satin/soft matte if anything. Sheer Matte (I believe that's what it was called before it got discontinued) was also just an OKAY formula. You would think since NARS is so high end and has pricey foundations that they would be worth the money but up until this formula was released I felt like they were so over priced.

    With this new formula NARS had extended their shade range especially for the tan to deep shades which is very important to me as I am a woman of colour with a deep tan complexion. I know that NARS has always been relatively good when it came to their shade range but I really can appreciate the expansion with this new formula.

    Here's the break down on this foundation:
    Pros:
    -Full coverage without the cake
    -Lightweight/comfortable to wear
    -Natural skin line finish that makes the face look fresh, never oily
    -Great shade selection for all skin tones/under tones

    Cons:
    -Transfers very easily (must be set with a powder, I recommend pressing it into the skin)
    -Sheers out significantly when applied with a beauty blender, must use a brush to get coverage
    -Pricey ($60 CAD for 1 fl. oZ)

    So despite the high price tag I definitely feel like this foundation is worth it especially if you're on the hunt for a full coverage foundation that is not cakey. I personally purchased this because I love a full coverage foundation but I find most have a thicker consistency with a matte finish which can cake up very easily. This is the best foundation for full coverage (sans colour corrector!) that still looks and wears beautifully throughout the day.

    "The perfect foundation does not exist"

    This foundation is absolutely perfect. It is radiant, but not wet or dewy. It dries down, but it is not matte or dry. It is full coverage, but not thick or cakey. It feels hydrating but is great on my oily skin. It truly is a miracle foundation. The photo is me in stromboli, freshly applied, no other makeup on top. TELL ME IT DOESN'T LOOK BEAUTIFUL!? And it looks super dewy but it's dried down???? CRAZY!!!

    Lightweight, full coverage

    I got a sample from Sephora. In the shade Vienna. Nars has a very good shade range. The foundation is very lightweight, I couldn't feel it on my face and I got full coverage. That's what I look for in a foundation. Nars claims 16 hours wear, my face started to feel a little heavy at the 12 hour mark. Throughout the day my face looked natural and radiant, no creasing, no settling into my smile lines, no redness and no breakouts. I will be buying the full size when Sephora has their annual sale. It's $60 a bottle.
