Foundations -NARS -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

foto

After 40 I had to redo all my makeup and skincare. Something went down with my skin that made it very difficult to work with. Perhaps in my youth I could put anything on it and it worked....ahhhh, how we take it all for granted.
That being said I couldn’t find a decent foundation for the past 4 years.
Until now...
Total game changer. I love it. It matches. It wears beautifully. It looks AMAZING.
I’m so happy I finally have a foundation I know will look flawless when I apply it.
I enjoy putting on makeup again!

Nars Natural Radiant Longwear foundation is a lovely full-coverage foundation. My shade in this range Mont Blanc and I really enjoy the way that this foundation looks and feels on my skin. Nars suggest that you apply this foundation with your fingers, but I really don’t enjoy doing this. I did try it however, and also tried it with a brush but discovered that a beauty blender/sponge gives the best finish - full coverage but not streaky or cakey. It looks natural on the skin, almost undectable. It also feels very light, you can almost forget you are wearing it. It wears well all day, without fading or caking. My only issue was that it did seperate slightly on my chin after around 5 hours. However I simply re-blended with a damp Beauty Blender (no extra product) and it looked perfect again. My other makeup all applied easily on top of this foundation. I do find that it is not totally transfer-proof however, even when set with powder. For this reason, and the separating on the chin, I can only give this foundation 4 stars and not 5. However, it is a lovely foundation and I would happily continue to use it.

I have to say that I am writing this with a heavy heart. I love Nars products and I really wanted this foundation to work for me. So I was out on the market in the search of my new favourite foundation, and the reviews I found at a time about this foundation were really good.
When you put this foundation on looks like a dream, the coverage, the finish, even the colour, haven't had a better colour match before. Incredible !! That's is until 30 minutes later when everything changed completely. It starts separating big time especially on my chin and nose (my skin is normal to dry, acne prone, but not oily at all). It gets all shiny, which in it's defence it's meant to be dewy so I'll give it that, but I cannot describe the disappointment. I didn't stop though. I tried different types of primers, powders, setting spray, beauty blender vs brush etc the point is I really really wanted yo make it work because I LOVED the way it looked whrn you first put it on.
But I have up now, you can even see it in the pictures separating. And I am saying this bearing in my mind that my all time fav is L'Oreal 24H Infallible which is a 3rd of the price of Nars Radiant Longwear.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

Ok, so I tried this on years ago at a department store and wore it around awhile and was not impressed. They also said my color was the vanilla one and when I wore it just screamed I have on concealer. I decided to give this a go again because I wanted a concealer I could wear alone without foundation and the woman at Ulta recommended it. So, I got the color creme brulee and I love it. I have read a lot of people say it creased on them and that is what it did initially for me but not this time. I can wear this and it blends in nicely with my skin color. It also does brighten my eye area but looks natural and does not scream I have on concealer. I also have to say I wore this to the pool, not intending to swim, but my little guy asked me to on a water slide and I did and it stayed on, even when I was dunked in 12 feet of water and lasted throughout his baseball game after. I didn't have time to shower so don't judge me. Overall, I would buy this again.

Makeup Brushes -NARS -Ita Brush

foto

This is way more expensive than my other brushes, but I have to admit that I haven't been able to find another brush that is as good. It gives a really nice chiseled look and can be used with my regular bronzer. I like to use it with my Physician's Formula medium bronzer which is just the right shade (not too dark or light). I am able to blend with this brush so there is no harsh line and instead, gives the illusion of nice cheekbones.

Very pleased with this foundation. Long lasting coverage and I only used a tiny amount. Skin feels so smooth and pores minimised. I apply this with beauty blender or fingers . Weather is currently humid in the UK but this doesn’t alter the longevity. I would definitely purchase again.

This is long wear. And unlike a lot of long wear foundation, this is no dry!

Stay all day, and not dry.

Medium to full coverage.

Deauville is too light while Vienna is dark for me, though deauville is closer. I am Bobbi brown skin foundation 2.5

Perfect liquid foundation this one. must try


Blush -NARS -Orgasm Blush

Love love love it! It’s not a colour...it’s a blush, highlight, shimmer yet subtle. And it lasts the whole day.


Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

It was very hard to blend. I tried sponge, brush, fingers. Nothing helped. It gave me the dreaded white spotted pores. Primer didn’t make a difference. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you already have poreless perfect skin.

I bought this product to try out as I’ve heard many people rave about how good it was. I was not impressed with this at all. The coverage was extremely light & although I prefer light coverage, I would have been better off purchasing a $12 skin tint from the drug store. Besides being too thin and having no coverage whatsoever, this foundation does not blend well. It suggest to use your fingers to blend it out but that is unhygienic and it still looks extremely cakey, no matter how much I used. I will not be purchasing this foundation again.

Blush -NARS -Orgasm Blush

After holding out on trying Orgasm for the longest time, I finally gave in and am now an Orgasm convert! I have fair skin, (MAC NC15) and find this shade very flattering on my skin, not to bright or too sparkly - just a lovely, healthy, peachy-pink flush with a golden sheen which looks gorgeous when it catches the light. This blush is very pigmented, and therefore I only use a very light hand when applying it. A light dusting on each cheek is all I need for everyday wear. As such, the blush will last you a very long time - a huge bonus as it is quite pricey. It applies easily, and is not at all patchy. It doesn’t fade throughout the day either, which is fantastic. It doesn’t appear to emphasis skin texture, which is good for me as I have some scarring. I love this blush and am so happy to have it in my collection! I would happily recommend it.

Lipstick -NARS -Audacious Lipstick - Brigitte

Can nars do anything wrong?? This lipstick formula is bloody genius! Best best BEST out there. This shade is so sexy & gorgeous yet subtle all in one. I always have Bridgette & Anita in my makeup bag with additional backs ups at home. It’s amazing what a perfect shade & formula can not only do to the lips not transform the face. I have pretty full pouty lips, but when I wear this it’s as if it gives me a 3D affect & get asked if I’ve had fillers..!! Nars, you perfected it!

Brows -NARS -Brow Gel

I have this in the shade Piraeus (i can be spelling it completely wrong but its the medium cool tone brown) There are 4 shades: a clear one, a ash blond and a darker brown almost black shade and this one which is perfect for brunettes. I have dark brown hair and is fair skintone. I picked the medium shade because i dont like dark brows on my face. I like my brows lighter than my hair not exactly match then itll look too dark for my skin. I like the formula, i just wish the brush was smaller like the boy brow by glossier because the brush can get color outside my brows if im not careful. The glossier one is great too but i am a nars snob so i like this one better. its very natural and adds a tint slightly. The color of the nars is better than boy brow' brown one because its less intense and lighter. Also the boy brow can dispense too much color on the brows(for that boyish bushy look) and i didnt like that, i am just looking for something to keep my hairs in place because I microbladed my brows and just need something to add a bit of color too. i seriously love everything nars and its a win for me!

I’m sorry to say I couldn’t get this to work for me after a few years of trying. No matter the method it was eternally patchy and far weaker than it appeared in the pan. A shame, because it’s a truly beautiful color.
