NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation | Review

Hello! ♥

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation review

I'm so excited to finally be reviewing my favourite foundation! I first tried the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless foundation in March, and I've been in love ever since!

This is a medium to full coverage foundation, so it covers everything and leaves a totally flawless finish! It beautifully evens out my complexion and I hardly need to conceal my under-eye circles when using this. Despite covering all of my imperfections, it still looks very natural and it's not at all cakey.

It truly is luminous and weightless! It's incredibly glowy so I usually don't powder it to keep that beautiful finish it leaves. It doesn't feel tacky after application and lasts the whole day by itself so I don't feel the need to powder it anyway.
This full coverage foundation has an extremely lightweight formula, and it doesn't feel heavy at all or look mask-like. It's quite creamy which makes it super quick and easy to blend in effortlessly!
Although it's creamy, it's still quite a runny foundation and you've definitely got to shake it before you use it.

Once it has set, it stays put! It's very longlasting and is transfer-proof. It also doesn't settle into any pores or fine lines.. It just looks flawless and so so airbrushed!

This foundation works perfectly with my dry skin. I've heard people with dry skin complain about it clinging to dry patches but I have never experienced this. I think it would be great for oily skin too as the finish is sort of semi-matte and doesn't make my skin any oilier during the day.

I use the shade Syracuse which is a great match for me..
There are 20 shades available for this foundation, all in different undertones ranging from pale shades to deeper shades. To make shade-matching easier, ADLW is available in the same shades as NARS' previous foundations, Sheer Glow and Sheer Matte.

This is honestly the most perfect foundation for me.. Let me know what you think if you've tried this!

This foundation is available in several places, including here on the NARS website and here at Space NK.

    1. Maybe try a sample first.. You'll probably end up buying it after that because it's amaaaazing! :D x

  4. I want this stuff so bad, it hurts. Seriously before moving I will buy this bad boy. What Mac Shade are you though? I might have to buy this online so that might help :)

    1. The MAC foundations in nc42 have been a little too dark/orange for me, but I'm nc42 in their concealers and c5 in MAC Face & Body foundation.. Let me know if you do end up buying it! x

  5. I've only tried the Sheer Glow so far but this sounds just as good! The shade match looks spot on as well :)

    1. Oo I can't believe I still haven't tried Sheer Glow.. What do you think of it? Yes, it's a great match! x

  6. I've wanted to try a NARS foundation for a while now but I can't find a counter near me! It's a bit expensive to just order online, i'd be too worried I picked the wrong shade. It's sounds amazing though.

    1. Ah, that sucks! My nearest NARS counter is still quite far from me.. Maybe you could try matching yourself through other bloggers/youtubers? x
