I know I'm late jumping onto this bandwagon, however I am so happy I'm on the wagon! I wasn't sure what I was expecting with this foundation, because I only have a few *cough cough* and none of them have ever matched up to my beloved Make Up Forever HD Foundation.
This foundation is more suited towards normal, combination and oily skin types. Yes, dry skin gals can wear it, but you may find that it 'catches' on any dryness on the face.
I have been wearing this foundation for the last eight weeks or so, and it certainly does live up to its claims, well a few of them anyway. This foundation is my skin but much better, has no shimmer, and isn't glowy or overly matte.
The foundation is very runny, and you really have to shake the bottle beforehand. It is highly pigmented, so I only need one pump to cover my entire face. If i wanted more coverage, I would use a pump and a half. When it's on the skin, it is extremley light weight and doesn't even feel like I'm wearing foundation.
With some foundations, my skin goes very oily by about lunchtime (this is when I have applied my foundation at 7am). The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation manages to control my horrendously oily skin although not completely. The oil starts rearing its head around 5pm, but I can live with that.
I did try using the Make Up Forever primer to see if I could make the wear a bit longer, but it didn't quite agree with the foundation. The foundation literally started clumping on my face! I haven't tried it with any other primers because I'm actually happy with how long it lasts on my skin.
It is a pretty expensive foundation at £32 but its so worth the money! You can purchase NARS from Selfridges, John Lewis, Look Fantastic and House Of Fraser.
Have you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts?
