My new favourite foundation. I’ve had this now for nearly three weeks and love it. I thought Armani’s Luminous silk was great, but I have to say this is better on my skin. This is superb for maturing, drier ( slightly dehydrated) skin if you are like me. I have fine lines and my pores aren’t too noticeable and even less so, when I use this. I use a beauty blender and it dries down beautifully, to a ‘soft focus’type finish, I would say. It never cakes and stays looking really good still, until I remove it, which is the real test for me. I get minimal wear off on my chin and around my nose, but I wear reading glasses at work so I expect that. I’m a fair light neutral tone and chose ‘Deauville’ which is a good match for me. I do see a very slight oxidation on my skin a few seconds after applying it, but the foundation is light enough to take it well. I mark this lower for the packaging though. For some reason it doesn’t come with a pump. I didn’t realise this, but within a week I purchased one, because you can’t use it really without. When the pump arrives, you can’t use the Lid. Really Nars? It’s bad enough having to buy a pump, but it looks cheap and horrible without a lid, like I lost it or something. It lets it down badly. The pump is lockable though, so I suppose that’s something, but I have no idea why they would do this. I’d buy it again in a heartbeat though ( and re use the pump).
