Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

So the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (£32.00/30ml) was an accidental purchase, in that I didn't actually expect to leave with a foundation when I made my way into Selfridges a week ago. But lets rewind a bit, I have stayed loyal to my Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation for an entire year and although I still do love it I wanted something a bit lighter for the coming summer.


Cue my adventure into Selfridges, I had heard about the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation   from the day it came out, other bloggers proclaiming that it's catered towards oiler skin types. So naturally I was intrigued, when the sales assistant smoothed this product over my face in Selfridges with her fingertips me and my sister were both in awe, my blemishes were covered up in two seconds of her applying it. You can see why I took this baby to the counter a few minutes later. I bought this foundation in the shade Tahoe.
So the last few days I have been trying it out at home to find out what it does best and how it applies the best. So this is a medium to full coverage foundation but feels very very light, it has an almost watery consistency, but the pigmentation is crazily amazing, it sinks into the skin super fast, perfecting the base without caking it up. You can use your hands to apply this, I think it actually works better with fingers as it warms the product up, however I still prefer to use a brush, so I use the Sculpting brush by Real Techniques (See review here). You are left with a semi-matte luminous finish.




Now, I have to use a powder with this because my face will become oily every four hours when I use this product, so I don't actually think it's the best for oily skin at all, if you have oily skin and you don't mind powdering then go for this product because it is amazing, but if you don't like to powder then I would go with Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I think this is better for normal to combination skin types, as it does make the skin nice and glowing but it doesn't control excess oil all that great. But add a bit of powder and voila this foundation is true to it's name, so I am actually really satisfied with this product. Price wise, it may seem extreme if you don't purchase high end foundations however I have to say that I don't use a full pump of this foundation to achieve a full coverage look, a little goes a heck of a long way due to it's water-like consistency so I know that this will last me more than 6 months which justifies the price for me. 


This is my first ever NARS product and I am so impressed, I fall in love with this product more and more every day, it's very easy to control the amount of coverage that you want with the pump. Only bad thing I have against it is that the packing gets grubby really fast which sucks because the packaging is beautiful!
So I would recommend this to everyone who wants a weightless medium to full coverage foundation. The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is true to its name and an excellent choice for all year round. For more information click here!
