Hello beauties, continuing my search for the perfect foundation and making my way down my ‘to try list’ is the Nars All Day Weightless Luminous foundation that I see many makeup artists and beauty gurus raving about. I also picked up the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer as I had also heard amazing things about it being hydrating under the eyes. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on both as well as swatches and what it looks like on!

Blendable. Breathable. Skin at its most beautiful. Ideal for all skin types and tones in 20 global shades.
I’ve always been a fan of this style of simple yet sleek packaging. It comes in a frosted thick glass bottle that is very sturdy with the NARS logo printed on the front. You can see the shade of the foundation and exactly how much product you have left. I love the fact that this comes with a pump too!
What first sold me on this foundation was the ‘weightless’ aspect. I like my skin to look like skin but more flawless. I recommend giving this foundation a good shake before using as it’s texture is a runny liquid. It feels more like a BB cream or a moisturiser so I was skeptical about how much it was going to cover. Once I pumped out two pumps of this foundation and started applying with my Real Techniques sponge I was blown away by the coverage. Two pumps of product will provide you with a medium coverage but you can easily build it up with a extra pump if you’re after full coverage. It’s worth noting that the pump sizes seem smaller then the average foundation. This blends like a dream and it looks so seamless, literally looks like skin and you can’t feel that you have anything on. It makes my skin look extremely healthy and offered a satin matte finish. You will see in the photos below just how ‘weightless’ this looks.
I was extremely pleased to find that this foundation still looked so pretty after a good eight hours wear. I’m a dry skinned gal and it didn’t cling to any dry patches or excentuate any texture. I didn’t need to touch up my makeup throughout the day and the only time I noticed a change was when i checked at the end of the night and saw it had broken up slightly on the outer corners of my nose. I think this will be great foundation for both oily skinned girls (I’d recommend using a matte primer to make it full matte) and for dry skin girls like myself as it does offer a satin matte finish. (I used the Becca Backlight primer as it gives a dewy effect so didn’t make the foundation look so matte)
In this range there’s 20 shades, the lightest is ‘Siberia’ which is a very pale shade and the darkest being ‘kartoum’ which is a deep tone. I love that they have a even number of skin tone options. I chose the shade ‘gobi’ which is light with yellow undertones.
This costs £34 for the standard 30ml of product, this is a steep price for me but is the average price for a high end foundation. That being said I loved everything about this foundation so when I run out I will definitely be buying it again. If you are interested in buying you can find it here.
Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, NARS new Radiant Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight medium to high buildable coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.
• Long wearing and crease-proof.
• Paraben-free, Alcohol free, Synthetic fragrance free, Non commedogenic.
Housed in a see through tube with the same Nars logo on the front, this is another simple yet luxe looking product. This has a doe foot applicator which is very small, I’m not too keen on the applicator as I feel like it doesn’t allow you to get enough product onto your under eye area and feels quite stiff and drags a little on the under eye. I think a wider applicator would of helped.
Aptly named, this concealer has a very creamy texture, it blends out easily with my beauty sponge and gives a dewy effect under the eyes. This makes your eyes look more awake and hydrated. This definitely has a medium to full coverage and really did make short work of covering my hereditary dark circles.
There’s 22 shades on offer in this concealer, I picked up the shade ‘vanilla’ which has pink undertones, the reason I chose the pink one when I have a yellow toned foundation is to add a brightening effect to my dark circles by colour correcting as pink/peach counteracts blue/purple.
After the initial application and once I had set it with a loose powder this concealer did look really pretty, however as the day went on it sadly started to crease and little lines were forming. This was fixable by lightly dabbing the area with my finger to smooth it out before retouching with some powder. This was super disappointing to me as the coverage and colour is so spot on.
This concealer costs £24 for 6ml of product, which I think is a fair product for a high end product with such great coverage. You can find it here.
I’m really eager to try the Longwear foundation from Nars. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
