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.

    Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

    I have dry skin with large pores. I use this foundation with benefit porefessional underneath and apply with a beauty blender. On me, this foundation is full coverage, has a matte finish, and is long wearing. I know a foundation is good when random people compliment me on my skin and I get compliments every time I wear this foundation. I have yet to wear it in the summer heat, but am confident it will hold up. Highly recommend!

    Holy grail

    By Katie

    from Texas

    Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

    This is a very lightweight, natural feeling formula and I adore the finish. If you have blemishes, it won't exaggerate them but it doesn't conceal them since it's not full-coverage. The shade range was is a major selling point for me since I am light-medium olive with gold undertones and the shade Stromboli is an exact match for me. This is the perfect every day foundation for work, especially since it's long wearing.

    Wanted to like it, but didn't.

    By Brit

    from Minnesota

    Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

    I've heard nothing but good reviews about this foundation, so I decided to splurge and give it a try. Initially, it made my skin look great. However, after 2 hours, it started to look patchy and my skin looked dry. I have combination skin so I use primers and a damp beauty blender and it still didn't help. Drugstore foundations look better than this. I'll definitely be returning this.

      Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

      I tried this product with a damp beauty sponge and a brush that I sprayed with setting spray for some extra moisture. You don't seem to have long to blend once it's applied, so you need to go in sections. I tried this when my skin was SERIOUSLY acting up, and almost wanted to cry when i put this on. If you have texture/pores/acne definitely stay away, because unfortunately it will emphasize that, but setting it with a powder toned down how bad my skin looked initially. I tried it again when my skin was clearing and liked it much more, but still wasnt 100% sold. I feel like something like the Wet n Wild photo finish foundation for $6 works almost as well, but looks BETTER on my skin initially and doesn't cake up on my skin like this Nars one does if you accidentally go a little too heavy handed. Overall if you have near perfect skin or occasional breakouts and mild texture, you will probably love this.

      Loved it!

      By Jenny

      from Phoenix, AZ

      Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

      Heard mixed reviews about this foundation, but after trying it I fell in love with it! The first time I used it, no primer or baking, it did transfer and made me oily. But once I used my Becca primer and baked my oily areas, it did not budge! I get compliments on my foundation all the time and it's due to this foundation...I would personally ask for a sample and try it out before judging based on other bad reviews.

      from San Diego

      • Poor Coverage

      Best Uses

      • Light To Medium Coverage

      Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

      Not for dry skin. I wanted to like this but unfortunately it sticks to all my dry areas and makes it more pronounced.
      Even with Laura Mercier primer, this is super ugly!! Goes into my nose pores and dots everywhere! I'm going to add moisturizer to it to see if it'll work. I got it with 20% off and it looks great everywhere else on my face. Light weight almost like a B.B. cream. Not medium coverage.

      i really like it

      By haley

      from not saying

      Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

      I really like the way my skin looks after I put this on, but my only problem is when I get out of school it's patchy on my nose and chin. it needs touch ups throughout the day. but I would recommend if you have normal to dry skin and even some with oily if you can make it work.

      this makes my skin look beautiful, covers all my redness and let's my freckles peak through and doesn't look cakey. I have very dry skin so I don't powder my face and this still lasts all day.

      • 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?

        • 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.

          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.
