It has been a while since I have departed from my holy grail foundation which is Estee Lauder double wear, but lately my skin has been drier than the sahara dessert and the current foundation I had been using just wasn't sitting on my face the way it used to so it was only right I ventured out and tried something new for a change, for my sake and skins!
Before splashing a huge sum of money on a new foundation, I always have to make sure I do my research in order to breakdown which is going to achieve the best for me and my current skin situation. After reading so many reviews and watching endless videos on YouTube, I was pointed in the NARS direction. Never trying NARS foundation before, I was torn between NARS Sheer Glow and All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation but of course I went for the one with the eye catching mouthful name, not to mention I was sold with the possible results that I would get from this foundation.
So lets have a breakdown of what this foundation is supposed to do then shall we?
"Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop—the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly. Shake, pump and blend in sections for complete coverage that's completely natural looking.
Weightless Long-wear Technology delivers up to 16 hours of wear, while always feeling light-as-air. Featuring advanced flexible polymers and first-to-market treated pigments.
Advanced flexible polymers move with the skin, providing extraordinary breathability and comfort.
First-to-market treated pigments weightlessly deliver long-wearing, complete coverage without ever masking for perfected, natural-looking skin."
After testing this foundation out for over 3 weeks now using different techniques to try and decide which works best for me, I must say I have not been let down by this product. You get what you are given I guess and for a formula that has a light watery consistency, a little really does go a long way! I can actually cover my imperfections with 1/2 pumps and still achieve the look I am going for! What I really love the most about this foundation is that I don't have to set it with a powder! Yeah that's right, you can still achieve a semi matte/dewy look with this foundation without having to powder like there's no tomorrow, which is perfect for me as sometimes I just want to go for that natural no makeup look when I'm having a 'meh' day and let me tell you, it's absolutely astonishing how weightless this foundation actually feels, like sometimes I forget that i'm wearing foundation which can be bad sometimes as I end up accidentally touching my face (ew germs) and the transfer after touching my face is awful, but come on my skin can bloody breathe and my pores don't feel or looked as clogged up as they used to!
Overall for me, I would give this foundation 4/5. You really do get the value for the money as you use less product than a normal foundation to achieve the same coverage! However what made me give it an average rating was how transferable this foundation was compared to Estee Lauder Double Wear, but other than that I kinda love this foundation! Let me know your experiences with NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation as there have been mixed views about this foundation and I shall catch you all in my next post!
