Obsession is an understatement! As a makeup artist finding the right foundation shade and texture for your client is the number one priority and I have no complaints over this amazing NARS foundation in the shade Barcelona . It's is a satin finish foundation , so silky and medium coverage . My client loved how her skin felt and looked like healthy skin . I wouldn't trade this for anything else in my kit . I give this foundation a 10!

This is my favorite summer foundation. It feels so light on the skin, it blends beautifully and it stays in place. The color matches perfectly so no one can ever tell that I'm wearing foundation. It leaves my skin looking even and it just blurs any imperfections away. Set with powder and a setting spray, it stays on my skin all day. It never sweats off and I never get sweat lines on my face with this. I can use an oil to lighten the coverage or wear it as a full coverage. It's just beautiful

This foundation is amazing! It is a very light foundation which I like. I never feel like I actually have foundation on when I wear it. No matter how tan I get I can still use this foundation. It is a little pricy but for as long as it last, it's worth the money!

I love this product! Love is not even the correct word... this product is amazing! So easy to apply and it disappears into your skin. It's not full coverage but you can definitely get it to be. It gives your skin that amazing glow from within look without making you look greasy and cakey! I recommend this product 100%

I love this foundation. It's very build-able, but also light weight and blends with my skin so well. I don't get oily with this makeup and it does not irritate my skin or cause breakouts. One of my favorite aspects is that NARS is designed for skin application with skin so I can apply this foundation anywhere. I receive so many compliments on my skin/ makeup whenever I wear this product.

Omg I love all nars brands but this foundation has such great coverage!! It hides any blemish on your skin. Great product and good price. It's has such a matte finish . I would definitely buy nars foundation again. I recommend this product for any females or even males who need good coverage foundation!

I tried this after wanting to change my foundation, I normally use MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC30, and wanted to find something a little bit lighter with a more natural finish. I use Santa Fe, and I love it, it lasts all day for me and it doesn't slide or anything. I find that it blends really well and you don't feel like you have anything on. This is definitely my go to foundation now!

This foundation is not my favorite.. I have oily skin with yellow undertones. I was very happy when I applied it to see that it complimented the yellow undertones and didn't make my face look like a lemon. It is medium coverage and not sheer which I love, but my oily skin I noticed the foundation didn't stay put on my face for very long

I was trying to find a new foundation to use so decided to try Nars! This foundation was super lightweight. I didn't love it, it was just ok. I'm a full coverage kind of girl so this wasn't what I was really looking for. I would recommend it if you're wanting a foundation that has light coverage.

I have been looking for a full coverage foundation!! I don't have acne and I have normal skin; it isn't oily or dry. I have heard a lot about this brand... I use the concealer for the dark circles under my eyes. My question is, do you recommend this foundation and if not what do you recommend?

Is this product good for any skin types because sometimes my skin is dry, sometimes it's oily, it actually depends on the weather?
