There's longwear. And then there's strongwear. For the bold ones. The naturals. The rule-breakers, and the tastemakers. The ones who don't compromise, never back down, and always show up. Meet Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, the first 16-hour, fade-resistant foundation that improves skin by the hour and stays true. Skin Recognition Pigments match your skin tone, delivering your most authentic coverage yet, while NARS' Skin Optimizing Complex refines skin from the inside, out. Its full coverage never masks skin, but stays breathable, and unstoppably natural-looking. In 33 skin-matching shades. Let's stay stronger, longer.

Find your perfect shade of NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation.

Dispense one pump or a pearl sized amount of Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and warm with fingertips. A little goes a long way - concentrated pigments ensure only a small amount is needed for full-face application. Too much formula accentuates lines and imperfections. Avoid excess application around eyes or contours of the face. Apply foundation starting at the center of the face and blend out with fingertips. Focus on one area at a time and blend well.

STOP REMOVING DARKER COLORS FROM STORES THAT IS SHAMEFUL!

By Dani

from Charlotte, NC

About Me Brand Buyer

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

The foundation is fine, but Ulta needs to stop removing deeper tones from stores! I should not have to go online to buy my shade. This is how you lose dollars to other make up stores. Keep that in mind.

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Apply
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Matte Finish

Cons

  • Causes Breakouts
  • Doesn't Stay On
  • Pricey / Poor Value

Best Uses

  • Full Coverage
  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

Typically I love a good radiant foundation despite my oily skin. Ive seen a lot of amazing reviews on YouTube and since I have never found a foundation that I truly loved I thought maybe this would be the one. I was wrong. It is not terrible and the coverage you want can be very easily altered but it is matte when first applied which is odd. It gets more radiant throughout the day (oil) and it does slightly break me out everytime I wear it. It also never lasts a full day of wear, nothing more than 4 hours. Kinda disappointing but I paid so much for it so ill use it to the last drop.

Works great

By TanzieeB

from Richmond, VA

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I love that this foundation isn't drying on my skin at all. I also really enjoy the radiant finish it gives and it lasts all day. I had some slippage in the warmer months but other than that I have no complaints.

A little goes a long way!

By Tina82

from Northern California

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

Great coverage! Definitely more matte and fuller coverage than the sheer glow foundation. Long lasting as well! You can sheer it out with moisturizer or your sunblock for a more natural look. Will definitely repurchase!

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

When I got introduced to this foundation my cousin had actually bought it and it wasn't her shade and it was mine so she asked if I wanted it. I went ahead and tried it and I accidentally took a nap and when I tell you this thing did not move on inch ! I was so surprised. Great coverage and long wearing ! I swear by this foundation. The only one I'm going to purchase now. You're not going to like it if you have dry skin

FLASHBACK

By Cas

from AZ

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I have been dying to try this foundation for months and I finally decided to splurge a little bit, biggest mistake ever. I have oily skin so I thought this would make me look even more oily, it was the opposite! In certain areas I looked super dry, it emphasized a lot of texture that no other foundation has ever done, it honestly just made my skin look horrible! And to top it off, it has flashback! I do not recommend this foundation.

  • Too Greasy

Best Uses

    Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

    I finally found a foundation that has my perfect color match. However I live in Florida and went to church in the morning when I came home me face looked cakey and it separated on my forehead and around my nose area. That was within 3 hours of wear I didn't have time to remove it and do it all over again. But I had it on from 10am -2am and it did not last that long and it was my lil girl birthday and I don't even want to see how my face looks in the pictures!

    Dry Skin Disaster

    By Brosia

    from Arizona

    Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

    I purchased this foundation after seeing great reviews on it. However, after a week of using this I started getting cystic acne on my chin really bad. I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal. Also I would like to add that it didn't make my skin look great either. I have dry skin and it emphasized my dry patches. The one good thing I have to say is the shade was a perfect match! that's why I was really hoping it would work.

    • Q:

      I currently use Stromboli (medium with olive undertones) and need a lighter version of the same but none of the light versions have olive undertones - only yellow or golden. Which would be closest to an olive undertone - yellow or golden?

        A:

        I would go with something with a more yellow undertone vs golden for your skin tone.

    • Q:

      Hello I wear Stromboli in the luminous foundation what color would I be in the radiant foundation?
      Asked on 3/24/2018 by Hanna from Modesto ca

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        We have Stromboli as well in our new Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I would try this shade first as you are likely to be match well. However, due to formula differences between All Day Luminous and Natural Radiant you could be a shade or two lighter or deeper. For the best match, head to your nearest Ulta and have a Beauty Adviser match you.

        A:

        Our Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation provides a medium to full coverage look that leaves a more radiant and glowing finish rather than a matte one. If you tend to lean towards having dry skin, prep your face first with a great moisturizer before applying this foundation.
