Yes!! I am so excited for this new foundation from NARS!! It’s promises radiance, long wear and skincare benefits too. Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I have before and after photos and also swatches of all 33 shades! Exciting! I also have the all important ingredients lists.
Because radiance is my thing, I was desperate to get my hands on this foundation. It is online HERE. There’s has been a bit of a matte overload of late, and while I do love the modern matte finish that many brands are bringing out these days, I am still all about the luminosity and dewiness. I’m a sucker for it.

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation – Before & After
OK so it was love at first try with this foundation. I tested it for a day with minimal other makeup and it made my skin look so good. It’s really hyydrating, feels really good on my skin, it’s glowy but not too dewy and I didn’t find that I needed a powder with it.
I went for the light shade Deauville.
It literally melts into the skin so easily, and you can build it up without it going cakey at all.
I absolutely love it and think it could well be my new favourite. Ever since I tested it, I have been desperate to get it on my face again!!
The shade range is amazing and hopefully everyone will find a match as it uses technology with micronised amino-acid coated pigments and mineral tone balancing powders that are able to mimic the skin’s tone to achieve the closest match.
