NARS is adding to a portfolio of great foundations with it’s newest introduction…Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. Since I’m not only hard to match, but hard to please–in terms of foundation performance, I evaluate every one I try with a critical eye. NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation passes the test!
Without question, beauty companies have been making an effort to point out their inclusive range of foundation shades. NARS has had impressive shade ranges for years–and in this new foundation release, there are 33 shades available.
I received two shades of NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (Gobi on the left and Fiji on the right) to preview, and ultimately picked Fiji as the better match.
Fiji has yellow undertones for light to medium complexions [for reference, I also wear St. Moritz in NARS Pure Radiant Touch Tinted Moisturizer, am a MAC NC25 and Armani Luminous Silk Shade 5]. I love the lightweight feel of this foundation; it wears like a second skin. The coverage is medium to full and buildable, without being heavy. For application, although I tried a makeup brush and beautyblender, I really just liked using my fingers to warm the foundation and press it into skin.
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is very natural looking on the skin, and it really does give a radiant finish. I’ve consistently been getting all-day, long wear without oxidation or transfer. That’s because Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is formulated to improve skin hour by hour with a skin optimizing complex. In terms of skin types, this foundation is recommended for all skin types, but I think normal to dry skins would get the best wear. Oily and combination skins can wear it, but might notice a bit of shine mid-day.
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is available in Sephora and at narscosmetics.com now, and will be available in department stores, including ULTA, soon. If you’re looking for a new foundation, I would definitely recommend giving this one a try!
