Radiant Cream Compact Foundation Refill Only. To be used with the Empty Compact.

Radiant Cream Compact Foundation brilliantly evens skin with a lightweight, luminous finish. Combining the supple feel of a cream foundation with the sleek ease of a portable compact, the Advanced Emulsion Technology formula may be applied wet or dry for artistic versatility. Blending seamlessly with weightless medium-buildable coverage, skin feels soft and comfortable with moisture levels boosted by 80% after 12 hours, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhancing skin's radiance.

Includes a Radiant Cream Compact Foundation Sponge.

The NARS exclusive Advanced Emulsion Technology provides all the benefits of a liquid foundation in a customizable and convenient cream compact foundation that blends seamlessly into skin. Versatile formula can be applied dry for medium buildable coverage or wet for more sheer coverage.
Light Reflecting Complex™ optimizes translucency while advanced optical technologies including Mineral Tone Balancing Powder and Photochromic Technology visibly correct redness, balance tone and help skin look radiant in any source of light.
An Advanced Hyaluronic Acid Blend keeps skin hydrated for 24 hours. Ceramides reinforce skin’s natural barrier while Paracress.
Flower Extract strengthens the collagen and elastin network to promote firmness and lift from within. Vitamins A, C and E help protect skin against environmental aggressors.

For medium coverage, apply using a dry sponge, pressing evenly onto skin.
For sheer coverage, dampen sponge and apply foundation evenly onto face.
To build more coverage, allow foundation to set and layer using the included sponge.
The foundation can also be applied with fingertips. Not recommended to be applied with a brush.

I really liked the texture of this product. It is easy to apply and for me I was able to build me coverage wether I was wanting something not as full to full face if I wanted. I also loved the healthy glow it truly gave your face. If you are a huge fan of Nars radiant concealer then this product is a list try in my eyes!

This product applies on my skin so smoothly and it's easy to blend. It lasts pretty well on my oily skin which is a plus. I recently retired from the Army and when I used to wear this in uniform it lasted for about 6 hrs before needing a touch up.

This foundation is nice but cream compact makeup freaks me out as bacteria can harbor and grow in wet environments. It had a nice coverage but it broke up on me throughout the day. I wouldn't get it again just didn't work for me.

NARS is something that me and all of my friends use! This is perfect for a night out or even just a day of shopping. It gives your face the perfect color and isn't oily. I would recommend it to anyone!

I started using this foundation a few years ago and have been an avid purchaser ever since. It's works well with my fair complexion and goes on like a dream. Like many others said it can look a bit cakey, but it IS intended to be used with a setting powder and as soon as that is applied the foundation looks perfect. When applied correctly it looks great. My boyfriend could never tell that I had any foundation on, yet I knew that my facial redness was covered with ease. I love this product. And since it's a refill once you purchase the main packaging it is cheaper to replace, not to mention Eco-friendly!

Great for a matte look! I use this with just primer and gives my oily skin a nice and smooth look! Will need a few touch ups during the day for sure. Great packaging and would definitely buy again!! Get it from Sephora.

I have deep under eye circles would this product be too thick and show off my wrinkles and under eye circles?

I haven't decided weather I'm going to buy this or not yet but before I make up my mind I want to ask if it would be able to cover redness, minor acne and under eyes. And want concealer works best with this foundation preferable something that covers dark circles

I have combination skin. I tend to get especially oily in my tzone area, and my skin seems to dry out everywhere else when i wear makeup. I am more concerned with eliminating that shiny look i sometimes get about 2 hours after i put on any kind of foundation. Would this be good for combination skin?
