Okay so I know Nars is one of the top cosmetic brands around and I can honestly say I know why! I absolutely love their line. I mean like everything there are some flaws but my skin is also a little bit tricky!!
I have a few things that I will review in this blog; no need having multiple ones about the same company when I can do a few of them in one!
First up their ALL DAY luminous Weightless Foundation
What Nars says about their product:
Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop—the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly. Shake, pump and blend in sections for complete coverage that’s completely natural looking.
What my experience with the product is:
I will def say that this foundation CAN be a full coverage and it is a pretty weightless foundation, I would say that it is more medium but you can build it to be full. It says you only need one pump but to get the coverage that I like it is more like 2-3 pumps. People say it looks better when you apply it with your fingers however I am not one that likes to apply foundation with my hands unless I forget a brush and I am out somewhere and need a quick fix. I find it very easy to blend with a brush and it looks amazing!!
I don’t find that it gives my skin type a big glow but it’s not completely matte either it’s a good level of both. I find when I first put it on it looks amazing but with my skin type it does wear off I mean there is NO WAY I could get 16 hours of one application, I would say about half of that before you think maybe I need to touch it up a bit.
All in all I really do like this foundation, it really does feel light weight and makes you forget that you are wearing any makeup which is exactly the type of foundation I like! Right now my skin is super dry thanks to a combination of this beautiful winter and the new born I have so right now it is not ideal for my skin. I have found this product does stick to prominent dry patches, but if your dry skin issues are only minor, you won’t find it too bad as long as you have a decent moisturizer underneath. If you like quick and easy this is your bestfriend!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! This is my to go to concealer; it has a wide range of colours and I would be shocked if you can’t find your shade!
Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, new Radiant Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight medium to high buildable coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.
What my experience is with it:
I absolutely love it!! It covers up my mom bags perfectly; I don’t know what I would do without it!! It is very easy to work with..now concealer is the one product I like to put on with my fingers as I find the heat of our fingers helps it to settle better!
I will say although it is creamy it is not exactly moisturizing so if you are very dry under your eyes it may not be the best one for you! It is a thin texture so it for the most part does not stick/crease to your lines. It provides med – full coverage but if you wish to sheer it out a bit it is very easy to do just add a little bit of your moisturizer to it and you are good to go!
I also prime my eyes with it sometimes and it works wonderfully; really helps the true pigment of your shadow show!!
If you have not yet tried this I really recommend you go out now and purchase it!
