NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Macao

image

With a consistency that feels very fluid (think: Bare Minerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum), and less like a foundation, NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is very pigmented and does require some bit of experimentation. In this image, I had finally gotten it to work in a way that I liked. Using Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre as moisturizer, primed with Lancôme La Base PRO, mixed in Luminous Weightless Foundation with Orgasm Illuminator (also by NARS), and setting with Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray instead of Make Up For Ever Pro Finish.

Because of how pigmented this is, be sure to work in small amounts. Personally I found that this worked best when I used my damp beauty blending sponge as opposed to my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Using the sponge still allows for full coverage, and (I found) it spreads the product better. In this image, I had used too much — which leads to me looking orange.

This was the first time I had used this foundation, and I had primed with L'Oreal Magic Lumi Primer

This was the first time I had used this foundation, and I had primed with L’Oreal Magic Lumi Primer — and this is not your best bet. After a few hours, the foundation began to separate on my skin and look very ashy — this may be because the primer is actually a pearly white and that’s what began to show. (I apologize for the sizing of this photo in comparison to the others)

Weightless? Oh yes, I barely felt it on my skin — nice and lightweight. Luminous? For me, not so much on its own. I don’t think this is a bad foundation, but it isn’t necessarily for beginners. For me it works best with Embroylisse Lait Crème Concentre — as moisturizer, primer, or both. As well as Lancôme La Base PRO. If you decide to use this mixed in with a liquid illuminator for a less matte finish (which it does have), be sure to mix well. Lastly, this works best with a damp beauty blending sponge as opposed to the brush; because of both pigmentation and consistency.
