NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Do not get fooled by the "luminous" word if you have oily-combination skin!
This highly pigmented and perfectly balanced formula is a full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless,16-hour wear. This oil-free foundation and its Even Tone Technology instantly neutralizes redness and dullness, while it works to reduce discoloration for more even, uniform, soft and natural skin. 
I love that it gives my skin the breathability and comfort yet smooths out my skin complexion. What gives the luminosity is the gold and green pigments in a perfect 4 to 1 ratio optically manipulate how light reflects off skin's surface. The green pigments negate redness on contact, while gold combats dullness.

The glass bottle provides a sleek packaging while the pump allows you to have precise amount needed for your desired coverage. 

I generally use 3 small pumps onto clean fingers and warm the product up before applying small amounts all over my face. Blending with my fingertips, I work it onto my skin in an outwards direction. Also, blend in sections as the foundation does set quickly. 

I do want to point out that it does cling onto dryer patches of the skin, so making sure your skin is well hydrated is very important when using this foundation. I can honestly say it feels light as air on your skin no matter how much you apply. This is the first foundation where I don't feel the need to blot by the end of the day. Although on the pricier side, it's worth every penny for the flawless results. 

The swatch above is in the shade: Santa Fe medium with peachy undertones. Perfect shade for me in the summer and fall.

Perfect for all skin types. Contains no parabens. 

Available in 20 shades at Nars online or in store at Sephora for $59 (1 oz)
