Pros: easy to apply, evens out skin tone, lightweight coverage, moisturizes, no masking, undetectable on skin
Cons: a little bit pricey

I’ve started using the Nars products beginning with this foundation about 2 years now. According to the reviews, their foundations are, mildly speaking, far from being perfect.

I’d been looking for a foundation for the summertime at that time.

One of the most important things for me was that the coverage was lightweight and luminous, not matte. I got attracted to this option by the SPF 30, no alcohol content and the non-comedogenic ingredients. Plus, the color range had some shades with a yellow undertone. I have problem skin with an oily T-zone that is dry on my cheeks because of acids I use in my skincare routine. This foundation is moisturizing, which is good for my flaky bits.

I have the shade Finland with neutral pink and yellow undertones.

It’s impossible to use a thick foundation in summer that will cover everything up. The girls who suffer from acne know what I mean. The thing is that the coverage starts melting away in about an hour already and my skin looks even worse than it was without a foundation. So, I wanted just a weightless texture with a natural-looking finish. I prefer not to conceal every imperfection completely, even though I have a lot of them.

The thicker the coverage is, the worse it looks with closed comedones.

I use it all year round. When it’s warm, I use it alone, but in winter and fall I prefer mixing it with some thicker foundations.


  1. Evens out my skin tone

  2. Smoothes out dry patches

  3. Looks quite natural on problem skin

  4. Distributes easily and adjusts to my skin tone perfectly

  5. Doesn’t sink into my pores

  6. Can be layered, but it won’t disguise heavy redness

  7. Wide color range available

  8. Nice lime scent

  9. Stylish and nice to use packaging

  10. Goes really far

However, the biggest plus for me is that the shade looks even more beautiful in about 10 minutes than immediately after applying. I love this foundation for that!

It sticks around all day and gives me a natural glow. More than that, it perks up my problem and dull skin.

As for girls with perfect skin, it’s just an awesome addition to your makeup bag.

Price: $45.
