Review | NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Sorry I went ghost on you guys…Work has been insane in the last one month, I haven’t had any time to focus on much else. Happy to be back and yes HK Diaries will be back this weekend too 🙂

In this post, I’m sharing my thoughts on the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. If you guys have been following, you will know that I’ve been hunting for a good foundation for a while now with not much luck. See what I thought about Black Up’s foundation here.

I bought this NARS foundation in January after tons of recommendations from friends and a lot of bloggers online. I have been using it since then so I’ve had more than enough time to really take this foundation for several rides.

I’m happy to announce that I have found a bomb foundation in NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation! It has a very liquidy formula which I did not like in the beginning because I’m used to foundations being a little thicker. I went on to realize that this foundation’s formula is what makes it so great. It is indeed “Weightless” because it’s light and blends very easily into your skin. It does not feel like you have foundation on at all which is awesome!

The amazing thing about this product though is that although it is very light, it is a full coverage foundation. I don’t understand the technology that NARS used in creating the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation but it is perfect. This bad boy covers up blemishes perfectly whilst still looking natural and luminous #SayNoToCakeFace!

The added cherry on top for me with this product is the fact that I was able to get a very close shade match. I have yellow undertones so a lot of foundations come off as orang-ey on me (yuck!). I’m in the shade Macao which is yellow/golden based making it a very close to perfect match for me..Love it!

Now let me tell you what’s not so great about  NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.

Price– It is mad pricey yo! I bought it for 32 pounds in London when the average price for foundations is somewhere between 20 and 22 pounds. In Nigeria, retailers are selling it between N16,000 and N20,000. *clutches pearls* I don’t blame them though, FX rates are cruel.

Coverage– The foundation provides excellent coverage but the NARS marketing team exaggerated  when they said all you need is one drop #GirlBye One drop can barely cover half my face…

Length of Wear– Another marketing exaggeration…They say 16 hours, that’s not nearly true, at least on me. I have to use my blot powder about 6 hours in when the oil starts to surface. I don’t have a problem with that though because I have combination skin. It might be a problem for oily skin  so I would recommend getting a tester and seeing how it holds up before purchasing the full bottle.


 It covers the beauty spot on the back of my palm perfectly

Not the best lighting but this is what it looks like on me

 NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation gets a big fat YES GAWD from me…Love it! This is actually my first purchase from NARS and if this experience is anything to go by I should probably stop by their stands a lot more

Have you guys tried this or any other NARS products? Thoughts?

Peace and Love,
