Editor's Rating & Review

Delivers great "Is she even wearing foundation?" sheer coverage, while evening out slight discoloration. (You'll still need concealer for red spots.) Props for a happiness-inducing color selection and zero skin irritation, but dings for longevity. (By day's end, my rosacea shows through.) Nevertheless, a good performer for those with fairly even complexions. Very dry skin types or those who like a dewy finish, keep shopping (and if you hit the Lotto, snap up some La Mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation).

    Very Blendable, Looks Natural.

    I really love Nars foundations for 2 reasons: Blending is a breeze, and always looks very natural. The very sheer, water-like formula dries on skin quickly, and is very buildable. I have never had any problems with breakouts; nor does it melt off my face, even in the scorching heat of Summer, and doesn't settle into fine lines, or creases like others do. Wears beautifully, all day (and night!) long.

    long time user

    I've been using this foundation for over 2 years... I've only gone through 2 bottles. It's very sheer and light. Doesn't provide heavy coverage, so not good for blemishes. Evens out my undereye discoloration and that's about it. But it does the job. I'm just a little NARS crazy and am looking forward to changing over to smashbox once this expensive bottle is done.

    WORTH the money

    My friend gave me this foundation because it was too light for her, and when I tried it I was IN LOVE!! It looks AMAZING : great coverage, great feel, great luminous finish. A bit heavy, but it just means you don't have to use much A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. Makes my skin look even, healthy, and flawless. I think it's my favorite foundation thus far. ( I usually use MAC )
