I think I have FINALLY found my all time favourite foundation!
Can we just do a round of applause for NARS!? I love love love this foundation. I bought this at the airport because they didn’t have the Sheer Glow. I used to like Sheer Glow, but felt I could only wear it when my skin was really good, since it clung to dry patches for dear life and started to go patchy after a while, so I thought I’d give the newest addition to their foundation family a go.
And I’m so glad I did!! I use the colour Mont Blanc -Light 2, which I feel is a great match. I love the coverage, longevity and velvet/satin finish. I’m not a fan of matte finishes because I think it makes my complexion look dull and dry, so I’ve always favoured the dewier textures.
I’ve had a lot of compliments on my skin when I wear this, as it creates this beautiful heathy glow and evens out my skin tone. It covers imperfections really well and it is oil-free and non comedogenic which is great for problematic skin. Obviously it doesn’t completely cover everything, (which would make your face look flat anyway!) but it blends in nicely with concealer – I tend to use Makeup Forever’s Full Cover Concealer or the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for imperfections and these two for under eye. (NARS Creamy Concealer vs Urban Decay Naked Skin).
I haven’t reached for any other foundation since September, which is saying something because I usually change my foundation every month (or so…)! It’s beaten my MAC foundations (Studio Fix, Mineralised, Pro-longwear) and Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation.
I’d definitely give this foundation a trial if you’re thinking of renewing your foundation, and I feel like it’s actually improved my skin.
Lots of love,
