NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

2.15.2015


By God they've done it again! For the New Year, NARS released a new foundation, All Day Luminous Weightless, and its created quite the stir among the beauty community! I've been wearing this foundation for a few weeks now and I have to say this ish is good!

The product sits really well on the skin and is incredibly soft and natural looking. It is truly weightless, as the name suggests, and sets more like a powder or airbrush foundation, as opposed to a liquid formula. The finish of this foundation actually reminds me a lot of my Dior Airflash. It doesn't settle into fine lines or exaggerate pores, it genuinely just gives you a flawless complexion *Beyoncé hair flip*.

All Day Luminous is geared more toward oily/combination/normal skin, it doesn't play well with dry skin. Because this formula is very fluid and dries quickly, it definitely likes to cling to dry patches. I've tried mixing the foundation with a moisturizer and found that helped a bit, but if you have truly dry skin, I think Sheer Glow would better suit your skin type. As far as coverage goes, I would say this is somewhere between medium and full coverage, as I still have to cover blemishes with a dab of concealer (not a deal-breaker, ladies).

They say that one pump is enough to cover your entire face, but I didn't find that to be the case. For one decent layer, two pumps should be plenty of product. I've tried applying this foundation both with my fingers and with a buffing brush; both look great but I think fingers will give you the most natural finish.

In case you're interested, my favorite brush for applying liquid foundation is Sephora's Classic Multitask Brush (#45). All in all, All Day Luminous is a great addition to any beauty arsenal.
