The new 16-hour wear NARS foundation

Did you hear? The foundation game is changing—and NARS (naturally) is leading the charge.

These days we want our foundation to not only deliver flawless results, last the distance (read dancefloor) but be good for our skin, too. When it comes to a base that works seriously hard to keep your skin looking poreless, flawless, and downright porcelain as well as boasting nourishing skincare benefits, the new NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation has it in spades.

Let’s start with the coverage. It’s medium-to-full and buildable—one pump has the potential to cover most of the face and blur imperfections, while a few more pumps will give you the ultimate filtered-skin effect—a little goes a long way. NARS suggests applying its liquid formulations with your fingers; the warmth of your hands helps to melt product into the skin for a lit-from-within, undetectable cashmere finish.

And what about the “longwear” promise? The good folks at NARS pledge it will deliver 16 hours of don’t-need-to-think-about-touching-up wear. That means you can roll from the office to post-work drinks with the gals and not have to pick up a powder brush at your desk. It’s sweat-proof, transfer-proof, everything-proof! And it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey, it just blends into the skin with the help of some innovative technology—think tiny amino-acid-coated pigments and tone-balancing mineral powders for the closest colour match of your life. Fancy, huh?

But this product is not just about how it makes your skin look. It’s also about how it makes your skin feel. NARS has infused this hardworking beauty with raspberry, apple and watermelon extracts to help support the skin’s elastic fibres and improve the appearance of your complexion over time.

So, foundation that not only looks seriously good but is also good for your skin? You heard it here first.
