Tried a bottle since lately my skin has been on the dehydrated side. The girl at the counter matched my skin tone and when I went home, it is not bad *a tad bit too warm for me though. It might be better when I get a bit more tan but I don't usually tan much! As for the formula, I am not sure. I am not a fan of the smell, quite chemically. The coverage is med/buildable however for a long …Read more

I'm on my third bottle of this foundation and I love it. The price point is great for the amount of product you are getting. The foundation is also buildable - you can apply as much as necessary for a natural look or a night out. I have had no problems with this breaking me out or giving me any skin issues - I would actually say that this has improved my skin (I think NARS puts skin …Read more

Most of my makeup bag is NARS products. I think that they do colour very well, and their foundations are no exception. They have a wide range of colours available, which makes me very very happy because I can't always find the right shade for my super pale, yellow-undertone Asian skin.

I got this foundation in Fiji, which suits my skin very well when it is first applied, but I …

I have this, love it, will buy again. Great pigment, great texture. I just set it with a bit of powder and am good to go. It does not sit in wrinkles or pores and blends well... I have dry skin, so I don't have oil complaints that others have had..

I find that this foundation dries very quickly. Not the best to apply. It feels light though, and goes on matte but I would not buy it again.

I bought this in the shade st tropez and the colour is PERFECT for me.. i have a hard time finding foundations with the right yellow/olive undertones but this seemed just right. However it seems lately i'm very easily swayed by a foundation if its a nice olive colour instead of how good a foundation it is! I used it with my smashbox light primer and it look pretty shiney straight away so i …Read more

wowowow garbage garbage! i was using Make Up For Ever's HD foundation, which i liked, but I like to try new things. I happened upon Nars foundation. I wanted to love it, since I think their color products are wonderful, very pigmented and color payoff is great compared to other brands, however... this was probably the worst foundation I have ever tried. When the girl put it on my face, it …Read more

I am a lover of all things NARS (read my reviews) but I must advise against this foundation for one important reason: the second listed ingredient is mineral oil!! Mineral oil is notorious for clogging pores and causing break-outs, even on normal skin. Do a Google search on this stuff and you will see. I am shocked that NARS would use such an awful ingredient and then have the nerve to charge …Read more

I apply this balanced foundation with no tools, just fingertips. It provides medium coverage, yet does not look mask-like or unnatural, even in the harshest lighting because your skin is still visible through it. It provides enough coverage to be used without concealer IMO. The best scenario would be to use this foundation for normal to dry or combination skin, with NARS' primer (which will …Read more

It really needs a pump, but I really didnt like this foundation when I got home. I just got it because of the coverage, its medium to full and it covered all my acne scars which are hard to cover..so I went home and omg..nasty looking and a gray cast...it didnt match my skin tone correctly either..sent it back and got mat velvet from Makeup forever, much better investment and CHEAPER!
