I recently got the most awesome opportunity to partner with one of my favourite beauty brands, NARS, on their new Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I have to say it has been a complete game-changer where my foundation use is concerned. For years I’ve always known that the foundation I was using wasn’t ‘quite right’ but after going through different brands to find my perfect match, I settled on one I thought was best. Until now.
Top takeaways about this new foundation are:
- The staying power is ridiculously good – 16 hours of good in fact; the blend into my skin is perfect and looks so natural and not ashy like I was used to, honestly the best I’ve had.
- The shade I eventually settled on (they sent me 3 of my closest matches) is pretty much bang on. It has a translucent base and mineral tone balancing powders that recognise and mimic tone to get the closest colour match. Basically, you cannot go wrong with whichever shade you pick that is closest to your skin tone. And it really does stay stronger for longer!
The three shades they sent me in the swatch pictured below (from top to bottom) are: Cadiz; Caracas; and Belem. Caracas is my closest match and gives my skin a glow that wasn’t there before with previous foundations. It’s a medium-dark blend with warm red and golden undertones which compliments my darker areas around my jaw and under my eyes. Also, and probably the most important change for me, is I no longer get that build up of make up in my smile lines. Some of you ladies know what I’m talking about! Well I don’t have to worry about that any more and needless to say, I think I have found my foundation for life! I really recommend you check it out for yourself. 🙂
