NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

There is nothing I like more than a good foundation especially when it involves a new launch from NARS and when it comes to it no matter how epic my stash gets I just have to try any bases they bring out and the Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is certainly no exception......I mean why break a habit?

First off the packaging is on point, it's a slender glass bottle that looks great sat on anyone's counter. It also has the large brand lettering and is overall very pleasing to the eye.
I was also psyched to see that this foundation comes with a pump! I have always maintained that no matter how much I love the Sheer Glow I always feel a little bitter about the fact you have to buy the pump separately, so this pleased me greatly.

This foundation is a standard 30ml size,  so even though it's misleadingly tall you are getting that bog standard amount, however, this is more than made up for by the fact that it's so light and runny in its consistency meaning it's easier to blend and looks seamless and feels weightless on the skin.

Despite its lightness make no mistake about it this is a full coverage foundation, it really isn't messing about! Normally when you have a longer wearing foundation it comes with a cost of heaviness or feeling very heaped on and uncomfortable but it's certainly not the case with this one which I feel really sets is apart.

The finish this base gives is beautiful, it's very natural and the way I would describe it is Demi-matte meaning its very skin-like. I wouldn't say it is overly radiant which surprised me having that adjective in the title but I did feel it gave me a fresher, more even and healthier complexion which I was more than alright in my book. Again the coverage is wonderful and I love how effortless and comfortable it is to wear all day long. I would also say it is ideal for any skin type as it is very hydrating but not oil encouraging or greasy making it one a lot of people can get onboard with.

For those wondering, I wear this in the shade Stromboli and I am an olive, medium skin tone with yellow undertones.

Speaking of all day long, the longevity of this foundation is one of the best I have tried. It lasts around 20 hours and is more than enough for me, it's almost a shame to remove it at the end of the day. It also stays true in its shade and doesn't oxidise which is one of my big gripes with longer, high coverage foundations. The launch also has a fantastic shade selection so everyone should be able to find a shade they can rock.

And I think that just about wraps it up, I am really happy with it and my only criticism is that I would have preferred a little more radiance but hey you can't have it all and this base ticks a lot of my boxes.

  1. I don't usually buy high end foundations but this one sounds so perfect... if they have a shade pale enough for me I might be very tempted to try it!
