One of the major perks of blogging is the opportunity to meet other wonderful bloggers, and one of the lovely people I’ve met on this “whimsical” journey is Jodi from Up The Rollercoaster. I’m telling you this because a) you should visit her blog if you haven’t already! and b) she was kind enough to pass on the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Siberia Light 1 to me when she wasn’t getting much use out of it. You can check out her review of this foundation here. This was my first experience with a NARS foundation so I was quite excited!
The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is a full coverage, longwearing, oil-free foundation with a satin finish. It has a really thin consistency, but thankfully it come with a pump because otherwise I would make a mess. As a result of the thin consistency, it feels lightweight on the skin despite being quite high coverage.
I have the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Siberia Light 1, which is a pale, yellow-toned shade. It’s described as being light with a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones, but it does lean more yellow to me. It is one of three “Light” options, which also include a yellow and pink-toned shade, so it’s amazing that NARS caters to all undertones, but if you are ghostly pale you’ll have to bronze up to make this foundation work. However there are 20 shades in the range, which is a pretty impressive amount of options!
I always apply foundation with my fingertips so that’s how I went with the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Siberia Light 1. I definitely think it works best if I use a little less product, and I can always build it up, but it’s so high coverage that otherwise you can lean toward it getting cakey. I bet this would apply great with a Beauty Blender but I never use one. To me, this is very full coverage and hides all redness, blemishes, and uneven skintone.
While the finish of the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is more satin than luminous to me, it wears extremely well and as your natural oils come through a little throughout the day you get more of that luminous look. This is definitely a foundation that lasts all day!
If you’re looking for a lightweight but high coverage foundation that lasts all day, I definitely recommend the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I really like the way this foundation looks in photos and I think it would be perfect for special events. It may be my first NARS foundation, but if they are all this lovely, it won’t be my last…
Have you tried any foundations from NARS before?
