Hello lovelies…

I am so excited to share my review on the new foundation from NARS: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. But first, I would like to thank my hubs, @zurairi for getting this (with other goodies) as a Valentine’s Day gift. Thank you sweetheart!

On to the review….

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

One Drop

Pure Performance

That are the tag-lines for the campaign. That is exactly what this foundation is all about. This oil-free foundation is very light-weighted with watery consistency but that one drop of product is enough to cover all the imperfection and even out my skin tone. If you need more coverage, just dab the foundation onto the blemishes or area that you need.

 

Packaging

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is packaged in a sleek glass rectangular bottle with the signature NARS black matte cap (non-fingerprintproof, unfortunately). The foundation is in 1 floz, a standard average size of foundation in the market. This looks sleek and beautiful on my vanity table.

The best thing that this foundation comes with a pump. You don’t have to buy it separately unlike other NARS foundation. Yay! I love foundation with a pump as it is more hygienic and you can control how much product you’ll need. The pump is efficient too. It wont squirt out foundation at high speed, making product flying everywhere.

Demo

Below is my demo on using the foundation. I applied with my fingers so you can see how beautifully this foundation set on the skin.

The shade that I am using is Medium 1 Punjab.

 

The makeup look that I am showing in the video are inspired by the trend of the 2015 Oscars where most of the starlets donning fuss free base,neutral eyes, pinkish cheek and nude lips or bold red lips. The red lipstick that I am using in the video is NARS Audacious lipstick in Jeanne.

Review

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is amazing. It is recommended that you apply the foundation with our clean fingers and I agreed. The warmth of the fingers blends the foundation more easily. The initial liquidy texture on the first pump really surpassed my expectations.

The foundation set pretty quickly as it is light-weighted, it set on the skin within seconds, so you have to work fast in blending the foundation. I found that using my cleaned fingers is the best. I have tried using a dense kabuki brush (sigma F80) and it blends beautifully too but I have to use more- about 1 ½ pumps of the foundation to cover the whole face. Using beauty blender to blend the product is great too but I find that the dabbing motion works best. Same as the kabuki brush, you’ll use a bit more product using the sponge too.

The foundation gives a luminous finish like your skin is glowing from within. It is not dewy like Korean’s BB cream which usually give me oily look by the day. The luminosity that it gives my skin stayed the same throughout the day. For oily skin like mine, this is great!.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation lasted the whole day. At least 10-12 hours for me. I love that my blush and contouring shade stayed on even after I sweat a little. (due to the humidity of Malaysia)

Conclusion

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation stayed true to its name: its light-weighed yet great coverage with glowing finish to the skin. One pump of the foundation is more than enough, it is long lasting even in humid weather like Malaysia. It photographed beautifully too. Love this foundation!!!
