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.

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 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!!

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.

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 ❤

I am a huge lover when it comes to lip products by Nars, therefore there was really no second thoughts when recommended this foundation. I have a very oily completion and this product it extremely oily, therefore it did not work for me. The bottle has to be mixed before every use and the lid doesn't quite make me comfortable enough for travel. 
Although this didn't work for me, I think it would be great for those with normal to dry skin. It applied very smoothly and comes in a wide range of colors for every skin tone. It is a bit on the pricey side for me, but as I always recommend grab a sample from Sephora before purchasing.

Review for: Deauville more...
I was excited to try the new NARS (Radiant Longwear) formula so I picked up a sample at Sephora... the shade I was matched into for that one was a little off. I noticed another formula of foundation on the shelf and I asked for a sample of that as well... the shade matched perfectly. I also much preferred the wear and formula of this foundation (All Day Luminous Weightless) over the newer formula. It is medium coverage but buildable. I use a beauty blender to apply and it sheers it out a little bit very nicely. The finish is gorgeous, I have combo skin and it does not accentuate my pores but leaves me looking quite luminous! I immediately purchased this foundation. My previous foundation was the Too Faced Born This Way in Pearl. This foundation provides more coverage and luminosity, wears much longer and doesn't break up or settle into my forehead lines. It also works very well with the Nars concealers as well as a few drugstore brand concealers (Mabelline Fit Me, Wet n' Wild Photo Focus)
