So a while back I told you about the newly released All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation from NARS.  From the rumblings in the blogging community, it seemed like this foundation could be a game changer and I was eager to get my hands on it to see if it lived up to all the hype I was hearing.  Because as much as I love NARS, and I really, really love NARS, how good could this foundation really be?  Well, you better take a seat, because the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is better than anything you have tried before.

Now here’s the thing, I’m a sucker for anything that looks luxe, even when it may not be.  So when NARS made the bottle for the new foundation in this frosted, rectangular bottle, I fell in love.  It just looks so freaking chic and elegant.  To tell you the truth, I would have probably bought one just for the bottle design alone.  It’s a very happy accident that the foundation itself is the bomb.com!

The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is touted as being a one drop foundation that you can apply with your fingers.  Here is the thing.  You can actually apply the majority of foundations with your fingers.  Of course you actually need to use the same amount of foundation as would typically use when applying it with a brush.  That is where the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation comes in.  Yes, you can apply it with your fingertips, and yes, you only really need on drop on each side of your face and you get even flawless, luminous coverage.  It’s kind of ridiculous really!  Since this bad boy landed in my hot little hands, this has been my go to foundation.  And really, can you blame me.  It takes no time at all to apply, lasts all day, and doesn’t feel heavy or weigh down the skin.

For my everyday use, I have just been applying one drop to each of my cheeks, working it into skin with my fingers, and pretty much running out the front door.  Hey, when you have to be out of the house at 5:20 in the morning, you don’t have a hell of a lot of time for much else.  The beauty with the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is that it is no fuss, no muss and I’m out the door.  For what I want, this application gives me nice coverage and evens out my skintone while helping me to not look like I just rolled out of bed.

Of course, when I want a ‘beatface’ I use more than just one drop, but even then I am still not using anywhere near as much as I normally as I use if I was applying one of my other foundations.  Coincidentally, my mother, who has never ever worn foundation is absolutely in love with the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.  I dragged her into Sephora the other day to get colour matched, and try it out.  Despite ending up being the exact same shade as myself, she loved it so much that she picked up her own bottle of this gloriousness while we were in store.  Really, if that isn’t an indication of just how awesome this foundation is, I am not sure anything is going to convince you other than trying it out for yourself.

If you want to pick up a bottle, the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation retails for $57 CAD and can be purchased at Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay, NordstromMuraleSephora and NARS Online.

      Please do. Even if you just try it in store to test it out before picking up one for yourself. Part of what I also love is that it doesn’t emphasize any of my dry or textured patches of skin.
