All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation — Nars

GHI Expert Verdict

The Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation has a great range of shades to cover almost all skin tones, and it gave good coverage without feeling too heavy. It’s a little more tricky to apply due to the thinner texture, and it requires shaking.

Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New Orleans) — THE GLOSSIER

This confirmed what I feared…

I absolutely HATE a watery formula when it comes to foundation.

On my skin, a runny consistency immediately sinks into all my pores, fine lines, laugh lines {amp}amp; wrinkles. My skin ages about 10 years almost instantly. With the Nars ADLW Foundation, I also experienced serious cake face and patchy wearing after just the first couple of hours …Read more

Staying power, however, is another story. The foundation should last 16-hours, but, I imagine none of you are wearing it for that long, though. I wear mine for about eight hours every day, at the most. I’d say within four to six hours of having this on, you need to touch it up. I have oilier skin, so after a while the oil gets going and it’s time to blot, this happens with all of my foundations. On the flip side, I also have dryness (yay, winter!), and some dry patches where this likes to stick to. I also notice this foundation will also find a way to settle into the most tiny places, like fine lines on my forehead. I don’t find that it bothers me too much, but, I want to point that out, in case someone out there gets bothered by that sort of thing. Winter just makes my skin look and behave like crap, so, I can’t knock the foundation for that, it’s only job is coverage, and not correcting unfortunate issues I’m having at the moment.Overall, I really like this foundation! I think it covers my skin beautifully, and makes it look very healthy and glowing. I haven’t been able to cover my entire face with one drop, however, so, as far as that claim goes, it’s pretty much a stretch for people who don’t already have nice skin. I use about one pump per side of my face, and I found that that works well—using more than two pumps makes the foundation feel very heavy and cakey, so, if after two pumps I still don’t have the coverage I need, I use concealer.

Some other things to note before I go, this foundation contains zero SPF. Make sure you always use a sunscreen under this foundation if you plan on wearing it outside. I layer a Vitamin C serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen before applying my foundation.

I’m definitely going to give this product a big thumbs up! It works well enough for what I need it for, and it’s just such a pretty finish! If you’re not convinced that it’s the right foundation for you, I would highly recommend going into a Sephora, and asking for a sample. They are pretty sizable samples, and you can test it for at least a week or two before committing to a purchase. It’s definitely worth a try!

Let me know if you have tried this, or if you have a favorite full-coverage foundation you recommend!
