06 Mar Review, Swatches, B/A Photos: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Makeup
“Makeup should never hide the complexion. It should reveal who you are.” — Francois Nars
I’m a long-time NARS user and the Sheer Glow foundation is my absolute favorite! Imagine my excitement when I found out they were introducing a brand new foundation! The All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($48.00) provides full, natural looking, buildable coverage that leaves a dewy, matte finish. A replacement to Sheer Matte, All Day Luminous has been redesigned into a highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, breakthrough formula that builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop.
Gone are the days of a too-orange foundation — it’s best to find your true shade and add color back into the face with bronzer and blush. I tried the lightest shade in Siberia. There are 20 gorgeous shades that are sure to match any skin tone. Shake, pump and blend in the weightless formula for coverage that is completely natural looking.
One pump really does the trick — add two or three if you prefer more coverage! Be sure to shake the bottle well or else you may end up with less pigment in your pump. It has a very pleasant, almost invisible scent, and already comes with a pump (the other foundations require a pump sold separately). Unlike Sheer Matte, skin is left fresh and dewy. It won’t settle into mature skin and has a silky matte texture that balances well with added highlighters or illuminators. If you desire heavier coverage, tap on problematic areas and allow to settle for 15-20 seconds, then blend in with a brush. Once foundation begins to dry, it thickens slightly. If you should like sheerer coverage, apply with fingers and buff it in.
All Day Luminous has a lot of science behind it to develop this single beauty product. Advanced flexible polymers and Weightless Long-wear Technology deliver up to 16 hours of wear, while always feeling light-as-air. And Even Tone Technology is designed to instantly neutralize redness and dullness, while working long-term to reduce the appearance of discoloration for more even, uniform skin.
I have freckles, so evening out my skin tone is very important. Not only did this foundation even out my skin — it really did last all day!
