As much as I kept telling myself to stop buying anymore foundation since I got so much on my desk, tinted moisturiser, BB creams, etc etc.....I still somehow got myself the latest NARS All Day Luminous Weighless Foundation. I know I should be posting this last week but as we all know its Mother's day so. I hope you all treated our moms well over the weekend and continue to do so as all moms had gone through too much to bring us up (tears).
With this summer, I am sure you have noticed that most brands have been marketing their new light weight foundation, Bobbi Brown, YSL and more. So why seriously I choose Nars? First of all, I am always a serious fan in their make up range, not only blushes, eyeshadows but also their tinted moisturiser. Let's find the why?
You will only need a drop of these and it is enough for your entire face. Remember to shake before pump so the compounds are mixed while they are in the bottle! As you can see I already made a mess on the cap.
The sales did suggest to use fingers but I do have delicate skin and I am so afraid of eventually pushing dead skin around with my thumbs - my preference is a brush and dab around my skin until all areas are covered.
What is so amazing about this is - this light foundation is all that I need to cover the redness on my face. As you might know, I am a fan of NARS tinted moisturiser too, but I do find people still see the redness in the skin where I need to top it up with a green colour shading to cover the redness, it is just too much fuss. This is a one step product that I will need. If I need more coverage I would try to add more layers of the foundation or Nars concealer. I think NARS is the only beauty brand that is offering this green tinged foundation which really helps for red skin.
It does last through out the day, I do find as time goes by it looks better on the skin. Why? When you first apply the product is very much stable on to your clean skin. You will definitely need a moisturised skin as it does not sit too well on very dry skin. At the end of the day, along with the face oil produced during the day, it adds an extra glow to your skin and this is how I find this NARS foundation is so amazing. It looks good and also save up so much time and product you need to apply to your face, especially on a busy morning.....where we would prefer to snooze for a few more minutes!
For my skin tone, I am using the second lightest tone "gobi" and it matches well to my skin as above. I have shown the just applied and after when smooth out on skin - you cannot really tell theres some foundation, right?
The only consideration on this is the product make up, I am not too excited to see dimethicone as the main ingredient, which I am pretty sure it helps the light product adhere to our face - anywho.
For HKD 460 of 30 ML which does last pretty long since you will only need one drop each day. Well valued. I think.
