I really like the way this feels on the skin, but.....

OK... 16 hrs? REALLY? Hell to the no. I had it on for less than five and it would seem that what hadn't rubbed off onto my phone or my clothes had settled into EVERY.SINGLE.PORE. My fine lines looked like the Grand Canyon. It wasn't pretty.

Hard pass.

These are perfect neutrals for my colouring (NC41). My brown eyes look more glowy and bright next to the brown shade and the purple deepens the outer corner just enough. They are the perfect tones and finish.
It’s as though it was made especially for my colouring.
Very easy to blend and buildable. V finely milled.

Spreads well but emphasises lines, pores, everything. Great colour range, great packaging, it oxidises a little no biggie but overall I didn't feel this was a high end foundation, wears thin and patchy by end of day. Sample a few pots before buying, I prefer Revlon colorstay over this.

I love all Nars foundations and this lives up to its reputation. I personally like it in spite of some of the reviews on here but how foundations " wear and feel " differ across all skin types. I have oily skin so for me personally, this foundation worked well it's a good full coverage and looks matte. As my skin is oily, throughout the day it looked more dewy as my natural oils secrete. I do need to wear a good primer and hydrate My skin before wearing this with occasional dusting of translucent powder throughout the day but that's as My skin is oily. The packaging is nice and light looks sleek. Has a small pump so dispenses little product at a time which is good so you don't go overboard. Needed 3-4 pumps. Good product overall.

I really wanted to like this foundation, but it just doesn't work for me.

I have oily skin and this made my skin much more oily than usual. It also broke apart and became patchy on my fast after a few hours. It didn't make a difference what I used to apply it (fingers, blender, brush), the result was always the same. It also transfers really easily regardless of whether I use a setting powder.

It's really dissapointing as I like how it looks when it's first applied, but it's staying power is not enough for me. It might work better for those with more normal/dry skin types.

I will stick with Estee Lauder Double wear which is cheaper, and, in my opinion, far superior.

This is NOT for dry-normal or dehydrated skin. While it feels nice on skin, it sits in every pore! creating the look of white dots, sits and gathers in every crease or fine line (you never knew you had!), highlights texture, highlights flakes and does all sort of NO... and ages oneself incredibly. Why does it do that?! Who is this meant to work on exactly?! I tried every which way to make it work, moisturisers, prep skin ..sunscreens etc.. just nope! Nothing worked. Perhaps It would do well on flawless poreless youthful skin ..but then if you had that why bother wearing foundatio at all. It does photograph well and look great from a distance, but that is it. If you want radiant skin foundation look elsewhere.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

For me, this concealer is allllll about how you apply it. When I first bought it a month ago, I instantly hated it. Whether I used my fingers to tap it in, used a 217 brush to buff it in under my eyes, or used a beauty blender, this would crease on me like mad. Then I watched a video Andrea Ali did on YouTube with one of Nars' top people and she said Nars products are designed to go on with your fingers, so the next time I applied it, I used my ring finger to blend the concealer out in downward strokes (very gently; I didn't tug or pull at my eyes, just sort of glided my ring finger over it) and BAM! Beautiful finish, gorgeous coverage that lasted at least 6 hours on me (I don't wear makeup for longer than that anyway) and the colour Custard was the perfect match for me. Please take note of the fact that I use the Bobbi Brown colour corrector in Peach under it, and the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder to set it.

However, having said all of that, I probably wouldn't buy this again. It's too much work for me to gently try to maneuver this into place in an area as delicate as the undereye, and I've just gotten my hands on the Tarte Shape Tape and I'm kinda hoping that will be easier to work with. I'll review that one separately after a few weeks of use. Overall, this is a good concealer, and I do get the hype, but it's just too much work for me.

I'm late to the Sheer Glow party and I wish I hadn't been because this may just be my new favourite foundation. I love how lightweight this feels! It's more pigmented than the name suggests, this is a medium coverage foundation for sure and it's buildable to your liking. It hides everything while also looking very natural, it just sinks in and looks like skin. Gives a beautiful glow. I'm NC20-25 and I use the shade Ceylan, which is the best shade match I have ever found for my skin tone.

I made an account just to warn others how absolutely overrated this product is and how terrible my experience with it has been. I haven’t had a breakout since my puberty days, but guess what happened days after starting this makeup?? I’m experiencing the worst breakout probably of my life...big NASTY pimples all over my chin and jaw line all thanks to this crappy makeup. I can’t believe I bought into the over hype of this makeup. It’s a complete waste of money. Save yourself from a nasty breakout and don’t purchase this makeup.

This is a NO go for my dehydrated, 40 year old skin.

It is very heavily pigmented (I had a sample in Deauville which matches me perfectly in winter so a plus for these yellow undertones - I wear no 20/020 in Chanel and Dior foundations, previously Alaska in NARS Tinted moisturiser, the one in a wide tube) which is not the finish I normally wear but it seemed to be light and quite liquid so I was very excited to try it.

I applied the foundation only in the centre of my face where I need most coverage and on a a couple of spots on the sides of my forehead that had some uneven tone going on - I never apply foundations all over. Within seconds it accentuated my dry patches (it is winter where I live) and went into the pores and my wrinkle between my eyebrows. Within SECONDS! I have applied with fingers as instructed. I was left with white dots inside the pores on the sides of my nose and cheeks - not a good look! I patted in a tiny bit more to cover the difference, applied a small amount of NARS translucent powder on top and off I went.

I was horrified when I saw my face in the mirror at work a couple of hours after application - at least I did not have any client meetings just a boring day in front of the computer ahead of me. The foundation looked patchy, I looked dry and flat and it pretty much disappeared from where I have applied it! So that is much for longevity. Not.

I love a couple of others long lasting foundations (like Dior Forever, even Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hours was better!) but this one was a disaster. I'm very grateful for the Sephora providing me with a sample (and my friend who I asked to help me out in Poland as Space NK in Edinburgh was as usual extremely reluctant, ok, they refused point blank and offered 'matching' me in the shop instead - pointless and rude) because I would have been FURIOUS if I spent any money on this and one cannot return foundations in UK. At least I did not erupt in any spots. Always a silver lining...

One of the most over rated products I’ve ever used. I bought this after seeing so many favourable reviews on YouTube. It’s awful! It doesn’t cover dark circles and I could’ve bought at least three superior drug store purchase for less. Don’t waste your money.

Fortunately, I did not buy this product, opting to try a sample from Sephora for a few days. I was looking for a little more coverage. I typically use the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Malaga. I have a Med Dark Complexion with Carmel Undertones. In the past I have worn MAC NC 44 shades and BB Golden. The SA matched me with the Moorea which is yellow based but slightly chalky on me- perhaps another color would've worked better.

I have combination skin and a few fine lines. While I liked the coverage, I felt like this formula, settled into fine lines and did not last very long. I had it on for a total of 5 hours- putting it on in the evening before dinner and returning home to see that much of it had worn off. It is definitely not worth the price, IMO. I will continue my quest for a medium coverage foundation.

I bought this foundation after reading some great reviews online. I am someone who likes using foundation almost every other day just to even out skin tone and make me keep looking fresh throughout the day. The medium coverage works perfectly for me. I use my fingers to apply it and I need a very little quantity to cover my face. I like the slight glow that it leaves, perhaps works on my skin type. It does appear to be a bit too dewy for my liking, so needs proper setting powder application. It lasts me a Long time (around 10 hours easily) so have to give it credit for being Long wearing. However, transfers easy and needs another setting powder application around 6 hours in. May not purchase it again as I have sampled other products and appreciate their finesse more. Also the no pump applicator is a complete bummer and such a time wastage. I have never heard of any product of brand to be experimenting in such a consumer unfriendly manner.
