5 Reasons Why I Love NARS Foundation & Concealer

I have heard so many good things about NARS make up from other beauty bloggers, and being the nosey person I am, I just had to try it myself and see what all the fuss was about. Is it as good as everyone says? Well, yes it is! 
I have being using drugstore foundations for quite sometime now, just for the convenience of being able to get it locally and to match the colour to my skin tone. I have been really enjoying testing a lot of drugstore foundations, however sometimes the saying 'you get what you pay for' really does apply when it comes to NARS foundation & Concealer.
I chose the All Day Luminous Foundation in the colour Fiji, and the Radiant Creamy Concealer in the colour Custard.
I bought mine when I was in London from Liberty London. I absolutely love it in there. My sister (Hi Sis) introduced me to the place and ever since then, I have made a trip there to just to have a look at all the wonderful items they sell, and create a very big and expensive wish list in my head. The lady who helped me pick my perfect colour to match my skin tone was so lovely, and very helpful. If you need help choosing which product and colour would suit you best, then I would recommend talking to the ladies at NARS. 

Okay, so now on to the reason why I love them....

1. Coverage: It is a water base foundation so you need to shake the bottle a lot before use. It does seem a little watery at first but when you apply it, it blends in lovely and gives you a good amount of coverage. The Concealer on the other hand is a lovely thick creamy consistency, which gives the right amount of coverage without looking cakey under the eye area. 

2. A Little Goes Along Way: When I was buying the foundation the lady said that all I will need is one pump! I thought "yeah right!" The first time I used it I pumped it twice, but she was right, one pump would have been enough! I couldn't believe the coverage it gave me with only using  little amount of product. Yes I know, I should have listened, and not doubted her, lesson learned. Not wasting anymore of this magic foundation!

3. Long Lasting: The only thing I hold against drugstore make up, is that it's not always as long lasting as I hoped it would be, and by lunchtime at work I look in the mirror and wonder who washed my face and removed all my foundation! Both the NARS Foundation & Concealer are long lasting, and looks as good as it did when I put it on in the morning by lunchtime. By the end of the day it does look like I need a touch up, but it still look like I have make up on which is always a good thing.

4. Radiance: I have been searching high and low for a foundation that gives a dewy, radient look. I have applied other products underneath my foundations to create this look but never had anything that did it all for me, well until now. My Hubby even commented on my make up, which is saying something if he noticed! I am amazed at the healthy glow it gives you, which last throughout the day. 

5. Application: So this is might not be an exciting reason, but from someone who has used foundations without a pump applicator, I fully appreciate it when they put one on. It makes my life so much easier, than slowly pouring the foundation on to my brush or sponge hoping that it doesn't spill everywhere.

Even though the foundation and concealer are on the expensive side, I do think that you get a lot for what you pay for. With only needing a little amount for full face of coverage the bottle is sure to last you a long time.
Do you use this foundation? Is it your favourite? If not which one is?

Hope you are having a lovely day.
