NARS has recently released their highly anticipated new foundation, All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.
Size 1 FL OZ
20 Different Shades
There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the release of this product; people are very eager to try out this new, innovative formula, that essentially promises you the moon.
1) According to NARS, a single drop of this foundation will provide you with a light weight, full coverage foundation that lasts 16-hours. A SINGLE DROP. For your entire face. Let me start by telling you, you need more than one drop of this foundation to cover your entire face. I do not believe that a single drop of any foundation will get the job done.
2) I found that it was virtually impossible to blend out this product (using a brush) evenly on my skin because of how quickly it was drying. The quick dry effect caused my skin to appear blotchy and uneven once I was finished applying (you know, the opposite of what foundation is supposed to do). I attempted to fill in the unfinished areas with a BeautyBlender, but found that too much product was absorbed and not enough transferred to my face. The instructions on the box tell you to use your fingers, but I found that achieving even application was virtually impossible using that method (or any method, really).
3) NARS states this product is suitable for all skin types, but I found that it not only accentuated dry spots and fine lines, but it also got very shiny throughout the day. I would not recommend this product for people with dry skin or oily skin…
I think that NARS got a little bit ahead of themselves making all of these promises about this product. Weightless Long-wear Technology and flexible polymers sounds new and exciting, but what I got was an underwhelming foundation that did not live up to my expectations. Overall I say DENY IT. Save your $48.
