This is one of the best foundations I ever used.
It gives medium (to full) coverage, it’s buildable. It doesn’t dry skin, doesn’t oxidize and doesn’t have any smell.
What I love about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is an effect of freshness and some kind of light it gives to my face. I use it with my beauty-blender, and if I know I’m gonna have a long day - I can have two layers. It never gets “caky”. It works good with any setting powder.
But of course remember - to have it perfect on your face - you need prep your skin and moisturize as needed. If you take all the important steps then you will love this foundation as much as I do.

I was in the market for a lightweight, long-lasting foundation that would withstand my long work shifts (12 hours).  I absolutely loved how lightweight this foundation felt.  It looks amazing upon first application and has about a 6 hour wear time for me and that's when it starts separating on my forehead and nose (I have an oily T zone).  I have tried multiple things to remedy it: Wayne Goss' technique of placing setting powder before foundation, applying different matte primers, applying setting powder after, using setting spray... in the end, my oils still shine through and I look like a hot mess half way into my shift.  I still do like it for when I know I'm not going to be going to work and only need a few hours of coverage.  I probably will not repurchase since it is not long lasting on me.

If I’m being 100% honest, I am an oil slick. Foundations will transfer, my skin looks super shiny, and I can FEEL the grease and foundation sitting on my skin. Overall, it’s not fun, haha. However, I love this foundation because I don’t experience ANY of these unfortunate foundation events. The shade I wear matches me perfectly and I can have my face on for over 12 hours with minimal oil and I love it. At first, applying this foundation felt a little too powdery and matte and it took me a bit to get used to it. However, after setting it with a spray, my face looked fantastic and there was no powdery look. This foundation helped me tremendously during the summertime and my eyeshadow doesn’t even budge if I apply it to my lids. I would definitely recommend it if you prefer a lighter feeling foundation that control oil!

As someone who used to hate liquid foundations, I really really like this one. I use the shade Barcelona and it literally looks like my skin but airbrushed. I know it's buildable coverage but I usually just add one layer because I personally can't handle a lot of foundation. When I use one layer some of my spots are still visible but obviously better than without foundation.

It is so lightweight too, which I really love! It doesn't feel like I have anything on my face. I just love how it feels and looks on my face. The only downside is that I don't have oily skin at all but I get a little oily around my nose area; nothing a blotting sheet can't fix! While on the pricy side, I think this definitely is worth the money and lasts for a long time.

PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING
I have combo skin so I have a hard time finding a foundation that won’t dry my skin or make me ever more oily and after talking to my sister in law about this she gifted me this foundation and the application for this is critical, I saw a desi perks yt video of her favorite foundations and she said with this foundation when she first applied she didn’t think anything of it UNTIL she applied it with her fingers that she loved it which it also says on the instructions too, I think Laura lee also said something like that as well. After I prep my skin with usual skin care (always moisturize a lot) and primer I shake the bottle pump 2 ish pumps in my palm to warm it up and then apply with my fingers and then finish it off with blending it together with a beauty blender. When I first apply it, it looks super yellow but it’s warms up to my tan skin (not oxidize) and looks beautiffuuuullllllll, best foundation ever after you apply it correctly

I am not sure how I am feeling about this foundation.. maybe I am applying it wrong. I think it looks good for about an hour after I apply it and then it seems to start creasing and becoming liquid mud on my face and I have to blot my face all day. I have heard such amazing things about this foundation so having it a little less than a week I do not want to jump to conclusions. I cleanse my skin, moistuize and prime with J.one and then I am using a beauty blender to apply it (i use about to small dots of the foundation for my entire face) I set with cover fx powder and then mist with MILK setting spray... My fenty foundation would sit like a rock on my face all day with the same application. So I am hoping I am missing a key point to applying this foundation because I really want to love it!!

Whoa, my friends used to get mad at me because of how many foundations I would buy. I am not kidding, I have a disgusting collection of foundation and have wasted so much money on them. FINALLY, I found it. MY HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION. Never thought I'd see the day. For reference, I have hella combination skin, oily with dry patches and its medically treated. Acne, Acne scares etc etc you name it. This stuff just works. I think the reason it only has a 4 star rating is because people do not know how to apply it. This is a very very tricky foundation and after having a makeup artist teach me how to use it, its just become my new go to. I usually only use brushes and beauty blenders but this one is the only foundation you are actually supposed to use with you fingers ( I know- it doesnt sound right but thats how you get that all day weightless luminous coverage). First, warm up your primer on the back of your hand by mixing it. Then apply. With one pump of this foundation do this same thing, warm the foundation up on the back of your hand. Take a finger or two and dip it in the foundation and start applying the from the outside of your face in. I then go over it with a wet beauty blender. I looks flawless and it covers all my scars. It does a very good job concealing redness and acne but I still go in with a concealer after. Wear time is for sure 16 hours and its amazing. Try it!!!

Sephora foundation match system said "Punjab" is color match,  I got a free sample.   It is a bit too dark,  Fiji is more my color.  
PRO:  This foundation is very light on the skin and it looks beautiful and glowy.  It is full coverage and covers my sun spots which I love.  Much better coverage than EL DW. This does not exaggerate the pores on my cheeks but rather hides them.
CON:  this is marketed as 16 hour wear.  This is not a long wear foundation.   After 2 hours with my oily skin,  it looks cakey.  At 4 hours,  it starts to separate on my chin and my forehead is super shiny.   This also transfers.  It also burns my face but after I powder, it settles down,  but when my oils start to come though the foundation stays to burn my face again.  This settled into all fine lines under my eyes.

I purchased this after falling in love with the NARS Sheer Glow Coverage. The pump is easy to use, and the bottle is slim and sleek making it easier to store. When I tried it I immediately knew that this would provide full coverage that lasts, but has to be applied properly. I have normal/combination skin. Applying a thin layers with a beauty blender to build up coverage leaves your skin looking flawless, but when I’m rushed if I’m not careful it’s easy to apply too much and be left cakey, especially during the winter when my skin is dry. Otherwise I can go out dancing all night and come home with flawless skin! Best overall coverage foundation I’ve tried so far.

Review for: Nars All Day Luminous Foundation more...
This product has been a life saver for me! For months I'd been looking for a foundation that I could where comfortably at work without worrying about it transferring all over papers and keyboards, then finally I found Nars! This foundation didn't feel heavy or caked on, like over foundations id tried did, and literally would NOT TRANSFER even after by the end of shift! I would recommend this to anyone that's low maintenance with makeup like me and doesn't want to have to spend extra money on setting powers or all them extra sprays..this foundation is simple and light enough to work well on its own.

*NOTE* One thing about this foundation is that it's VERY light so if you're looking for fuller coverage, this isn't the product for you, but if you want something that gives off a more natural look ("no makeup" type makeup) then this is perfect ❤
