Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review

When I saw that this product launched, I had just recently purchased Nars Sheer Glow in a new shade.  I opted for Stromboli in the Sheer Glow and found that it was a good match, but I might need to wait for the warmer months to roll around to help give my tan a boost.

I decided to pick up the new(ish) All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in the shade Punjab, which is my usual go-to Nars shade.  This shade is for light-medium skin with golden/peachy undertones, similar to a Mac NC25-30.

The foundation claims to offer full, natural coverage and 16-hour wear.  This foundation is a very thin texture and almost feels similar to Mac's Face and Body upon touching your skin.  The pigmentation of this foundation is amazing -- One drop should cover the majority of your face.  Literally, one tiny drop.  I found that 1.5 drops was better for me to really cover my entire face.

If you have any spots, scars, or funky things you want to cover up, you'll want to go in with a concealer on top.  

I applied my makeup around 7:30AM and it lasted pretty well until 6:00PM.  It did look a bit greasy at the end of the day, but I only powdered my concealer that day and did not set the whole face.  I recommend setting your entire face if you are on the combo/oily side.  Might have to try the Nars powder foundation next...heard it is the bomb a la Chloe Morello.

  1. Thanks for the review! I had trouble picking either Ceylon or Punjab.

    1. They're pretty close! Ceylon is a bit more yellow and Punjab more neutral- what did you go with?!
