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

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.

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 have such sensitive skin it reacts to almost anything so I have to be careful of products ingredients to avoid a little bump or rash. NARS never irritates my skin so I’m a loyal customer. This product feels soft on my skin and is full coverage. I don’t need to reapply for approx 6 hours. It’s great for the price, and lasts me 6 months.

I found this product on sale and decided to try it out as I'm always looking for foundations to try. I apply this with a damp beauty blender rather than the sponge provided. It's very creamy and bendable and bendable, with one layer I get medium coverage that still looks like skin.

Sometimes I go through some periods in the year when my skin is very dry, so I can't really use this product and switch to a liquid, but during the warmer months this is my go to! I love this product and the smooth look it gives me!

Oh I love this brand it has most of the products come in full coverage. I love their label and logo the way it looks on all their products. The price range is pretty similar as compared to others that are its competitors and I believe this is good for every day wear.

Anything “NARS radiant and creamy” is always going to be a hit. From their concealer (which is one of my top two favorites) to their liquid foundation, to this powder foundation. The products always always always pull through in terms of being dependable

I just sent expecting much from this foundation, but I was pleasantly surprised!! I’ve never bought anything from NARS before and this persuaded me to buy a larger size of their regular foundation. As someone who suffers from acne and fine lines, this foundation stood up very well!! Lasted a decent time and coverage was nice!!

Soft, silky and medium to full buildable coverage. I find that I tend to use too much foundation with cream compacts, so I don’t use this regularly, but I do have this product in my collection for when I need extra coverage during and after a breakout. Works well on my dry skin, but I can’t say for oily or combo.

I’ve used this foundation few times and it’s alright, not my favorite. For me it was a little to much coverage. I like more medium coverage. It was definitely easy to apply and if you like heavy makeup look it’s for you.

This stuff goes creamy and will finish to a powder. Can be sheer coverage but can also be built up for more coverage. I think it’s a fairly good product by NARS. I think it could be slightly less expensive for a powder.

I am absolutely in love with this products it applies really smoothly I prefer using a brush then going with a beauty blender to make it look natural and not cakey. I recommend everyone this even if you’re a beginner at makeup.

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?
