Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

There is a new Nars foundation!

I repeat, a new Nars foundation. Are foundation addicts around the world freaking out right now? I know I am! 🙂

Nars haven’t released a new foundation range this exciting in a long, long time so I will most likely use lots of exclamation marks in this post out of sheer excitement!

Here’s what I know –

  • It’s called All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation
  • It comes packaged in a nice heavy bottle (see above picture) and it has a pump applicator
  • It’s an oil-free formula, very liquidy (similar to Fusion Ink/Maestro) and feels weightless on the skin
  • It’s available in 20 shades
  • The two main selling points according to Nars is that you only need one drop to cover your whole face (yes, you read that right) and they promise that it will last for 16 hours on the skin
  • It has tone evening technology that will balance out the skin, reduce redness and discolouration and so on

(watch my video review HERE)

Having applied it this evening for the first time, I would say that it provides full coverage and it’s incredibly pigmented, so one drop really is enough. I applied it with a flat synthetic foundation brush – I started on the T-zone and then blended outwards. It gives a beautiful finish to the skin; even and natural and ever so slightly matte, but glowy at the same time. Amazing!

This is what James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry has to say about it:

“All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is the most full-coverage of all NARS foundations. It also gives a perfected finish to the skin—a soft-matte, natural-looking luminous look (NARS also has a similar finish in a powder format with All Day Luminous Powder Foundation). All of our other foundations feature radiant finishes that deliver various degrees of a natural-looking glow. This foundation is ideal for anyone who wants or needs additional coverage and prefers a more “finished” look”.

So there we are! I don’t know when it’s out (I’m guessing Jan/Feb?) and I don’t know how much it will be as there are no details on the press release, but as soon as I know I will update this post!

*Update* It’s available online now from Sephora US

    As a mega fan of Sheer Glow and Fusion Ink I am super excited to see what a mix of the 2 would create.

    I see a Beauty Blender (or a Beauty Blender dupe) in the pic you have above – is that what you used to apply your foundation? I’m so skeptical that ONE DROP of foundation will be enough to cover the face and think that the tool you use to apply the foundation will be critical in helping to live up to this claim.

      I used a flat synthetic foundation brush (Bobbi Brown) and applied it from the centre out – totally covered my whole face!

    Very exciting! Thanks so much for sharing! By chance, do you still have the box? I’m sensitive to an ingredient and was hoping to get a peek at them.

    i bought this foundation because i love love sheer glow for the longest time. I love this foundation but there are a few who doesn’t like and it makes me feel sad hahaha obviously it wouldn’t work on everyone but it just makes me feel bad.

    one thing i don’t like is how it transfers on clothes or my hands or on my toddler’s face! but other than that I am smitten by this foundation.
