NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Mont Blanc

It's been a while since I talked about a foundation on the blog, so I thought it was about time to introduce you to the latest addition to my make-up routine. I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation -yup the big sister of my holy grail concealer- for a really long time, and I still love it a lot, but it's so damn orange on my pale winter skin that it was time for a change.

Here comes in the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Mont Blanc. I was actually going for the NARS Sheer Glow foundation, but the lady at the counter said that this one might be better for my oily skin, and she was 100% right. Sheer Glow is perfect when your skin is on the dry side, but as mine is combination/oily it's better to stay away from those kinds of products.

The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is an oil-free, liquid foundation that gives full, natural-looking coverage. The formula is quite thin and lightweight and it feels really nice on the skin. I use about 2-3 pumps on my skin and blend it in with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush -best brush out there-. It blends in very smooth, looks amazing on and it covers my acne, scarring and redness perfectly. At first it can look a bit cakey, but once I have applied the rest of my makeup, my skin looks flawless and natural. It stays on for a while too. NARS says that it will stay on for 16 hours and I have to take their word for it. I have probably worn it for max. 12 hours and it looks the same as it did in the morning. A bit shinier though, but there is nothing a bit of powder can't fix. I have been using this foundation since the start of December and I'm not even halfway through so that is definitely a plus, a little bit goes a long way with this babe. 

Now on the things that are not so great about the foundation. First of all it's on the pricier side. I picked it up when I was shopping in Duty Free at Gatwick Airport, so that saved me a bit of money. Of course any high end foundation is pricy compared to their drugstore companions, either suck it up and spend the pennies or you just look for a more affordable alternative -aka me spending almost 120 dollar on 3 foundations at Sephora-. Next on to the last and only downside of this beauty. I don't think dry skin gals will love this. It clings to dry patches a bit, and although I don't have dry skin, it kind of sits on the dry skin around the acne that appears on my face from time to time. I don't mind it that much, because every product kind of clings to that area.

If you have combination/oily, acne-prone skin like me you have to try out this NARS foundation! I have not had any break outs either with this product and I think my skin looks really nice with it on. It also photographs beautifully -aka your selfies look lush- and I can't recommend it enough. Dryer skin gals, try the NARS Sheer Glow. I have not personally tried it myself, but it's so hyped that it must be good, right?

Have you tried a NARS foundation? Which one is your favourite?


  1. I was considering this, but I love sheer glow and my skin can be slightly dry so may stick to SG!
    Great review!

    1. Yes SG is definitely better if you have dry skin! X
