Underwhelming at best

By bekup929

Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

I have been itching to try this out for sometime. But was waiting to justify spending the $$$ on yet another foundation. So when I needed to find a foundation to match my summer tan, I was excited to find my excuse. The pros. It honestly feels like you're wearing almost nothing at all. Which in the summer especially is definitely nice. HOWEVER... For starters, I'm unimpressed by what Nars considers to be a "pink undertone" there is still quite enough yellow to it, that I have to work pretty hard to keep myself from looking Jaundice. I've always found it difficult to find foundation that has true cool undertones, but because of how much I like their concealer, I honestly didn't think it would be a problem with them. Also, after a few hours it begins to settle in my pores and fine lines, which in my early 30's aren't exactly noticeable yet... so it is highly exxageratting what little is there. Admittedly, I dont typically use setting powder. (again early thirties so, I typically have issues with powders settling into fine lines and looking bad so I avoid them and use setting spray instead). I'm going to keep it, and attempt to hunt down a setting powder that nullifies the issues with my pores and fine lines instead... because I SOOOOO want this to work. But going on the hunt for a setting powder is something I've been avoiding.

Not good for my combination skin

By Acvm

from San Marcos

Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

I always get compliments on my natural skin (usually wearing tarte Amazonian clay) but I decided to try new foundations. After proper cleansing regimen, cooling my face, priming, and timing— this foundation caked into every pore and crease... I don't have many. It was sticky and smeared everywhere (even after Mac fix spray). Definitely not good for the acne prone skin around my hairline. Ugh never again

      Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

      Light weight and works great for my combo skin. I bought shade 4 and after all the foundations i've used this is the best match. Finish is great and not too matte. Wish it had just a tiny bit more coverage but is buildable.

      Holy Grail Foundation

      By SimplyTorrence

      from Detroit, MI

      Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

      I have very oily skin and love a full coverage matte finish. This satisfies both without looking flat and dry. I've tested many foundations and always come back to this one!

          Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

          I bought this foundation based on good reviews online. I am so confused how anyone could believe this foundation is good. It makes your skin appear like it is dry and flakey right after applying. I have tried numerous brushes and applicators for a week now and all have given me the same flakey, Cakey result.

              Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

              Not impressed. I was sold by a Nars rep and looking forward to using the product on my own. When I opened the container the foundation was so watery it got all over place making a mess. When I actually got it applied I was disappointed with the lack of coverage, oily finish, and overall experience. I took this back and exchanged for the UD All Nighter (much better). For the price of Nars I think there are better options s available.

                Comments about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:

                So far I'm very pleased. I work in healthcare and my makeup needs to last until the end of shift and through all the running around. I don't even feel it and it matches my brown skin beautifully.

                      Our All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation provides full coverage in a luminous matte finish. This particular formula does not include an SPF. If you are looking for a matte formula that includes an SPF you should try our Velvet Matte Skin Tint. This has a medium, buildable coverage with a soft matte finish and comes with an SPF 30!

                    I purchased this foundation last night and went to use it this morning. I did shake the bottle well but it comes out like water - it wasn't like this with the store tester bottle. I tried again shaking for over 5 minutes and it
                    is still pure water. Should I return this bottle to the store? Did I purchase a defective bottle?

                      Hi! Apologies for the issues you seem to be having with your foundation. Shaking the bottle should activate the foundation and be ready for you to use. The liquid should not come out like water so I would advise going back to the store and speak with beauty adviser to see what is going on.

                      Hi there! This is a full coverage foundation that comes in 20 amazing shades. Our shades cover all skin and undertones so you are sure to be able to find your perfect match within our range. I have detailed out the shades (with undertones) below, however my best suggestion is to go to an Ulta Store and have a beauty associate match you. It sounds like you may toggle between a few shades due to the different undertones in your skin. Having an associate match you in store will definitely give you the best match.
