Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review



I cannot believe how late I onto the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation bandwagon. I have wanted to try this foundation out since it was first released, but as I am sure that most of you will know, I have been madly in love with my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. In my eyes, at the time I didn’t think that anything could ever compare to my Nars Sheer Glow, which is why it has taken me so long to finally buy this. It wasn’t until I swatched it in Sephora last year when I was in Rome, that I realised I had to get my hands on this lovely little foundation. Then when I saw this on the House of Fraser website at a lower price, I checked out with it straight away!

Since I bought this foundation a couple of months ago, it is safe to say that I have been obsessed with it. Dare I even say that I prefer this to the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. I really do feel like every single thing about this stunning Nars All Day Luminous foundation hits every single box that I want in a foundation and that is why I have been reaching for it so often. I have even had to order another one of these foundations since I first bought this because I have been using it that much and reaching for it every single day. So, I thought that I would let you know what my thoughts are on this Nars All Day Luminous Foundation.  

The first thing that I want to mention, which is the first thing that I mention in all of my reviews and that is the packaging. When I am paying around £30 for a foundation, I want it to have nice packaging. The packaging on this Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, I think is really nice and suits the whole aesthetic that Nars has. It is quite bulky, and I can imagine that it wouldn’t be the best to travel with because of the glass bottle, but for an everyday foundation, I think that the packaging is really nice. Plus, I really like that it has a pump because that was one bug bear that I had with the Nars Sheer Glow!



Next, I want to talk about the shade range of this foundation. Now, as I am sure most of you will know, Nars kills it with the shade range, it is one of the few companies that has shades from incredibly pale, to really deep. In the Sheer Glow I am in the shade Syracuse and I adore it, so I just went ahead and bout the same shade in the All Day Weightless Foundation. I will say that when I pump some out onto the back of my hand of each of these foundations, the shades are ever so slightly different. The Sheer Glow appears more of a tan shade and the Weightless Foundation is much more beige. I have to admit that I am a much closer match to the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless than I am the sheer glow.

Now, I want to touch on the consistency. First up, when you get the bottle of this foundation and you shake it up, you can hear just how thin and watery it sounds in the bottle. Then when you pump it out, it is an incredibly runny texture, which makes it feel very lightweight on the skin. When I first saw this, it did make me a little apprehensive because I thought that would translate into it being a sheer finish foundation on the skin, but I honestly couldn’t be more wrong about that.  Because of the lightweight texture it feels like nothing on the skin and it is nice and comfortable to wear all day long.

One of the most important things to me with any foundation is the level of coverage that you get from it. This like I said before has amazing coverage. The first time I swiped this down my face, I couldn’t quite believe how well it covered. I would definitely say that this is a full coverage foundation with the texture of a sheer product. I have no problem with this covering all of my darkness and problem areas. I would even say that this covers so much better than the Sheer Glow. It is a buildable foundation and because it is so lightweight, it never looks cakey where you add more product.



This really is a truly blendable product and I feel like it always makes your skin look really good. I have applied this with a brush or a sponge and both times I feel like it looks stunning. This doesn’t accentuate my oils and when I use a good primer I don’t have to tough up with powder, even in the areas where I get oily. The longevity of this stuff is really nice, and I don’t think twice about reaching for this if I am going to be out and about all day long. Plus, this foundation takes next to no blending for it to look absolutely stunning on the skin.

I think from this review, it is quite easy to see what I am obsessed with this Nars All Day Luminous Foundation. I reach for this every single day and that is just because it lasts like a dream and looks stunning. For £33, I think that is a reasonable price for a high-end foundation and I am more than happy to keep forking that out for this product. I think the fact that I have already had to repurchase this once just shows how much I am loving it. And, Nars have now brought out a new foundation out, and with how much I love the last two, I cannot wait to get my hands on it and try it out… no doubt it will be a couple years down the line and I will be late onto that hype as well!
Anyway, I will leave this review right here. As normal, I will leave links down below to this product in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure you leave me a comment down below and let me know if you have tried this foundation and what you thought about it!

  1. I haven't tried this, or the Sheer Glow actually, although i have always wanted too. It seems really lovely-especially in the fact it doesn't take much to blend and lasts well, maybe i will have to put this on my wishlist for if i am looking for a new, high end, foundation xx

  11. I bought this about a month ago too! I love it. It wears all day and blends out beautifully. I also have the NARS Luminous Weightless which I feel is a little more yellow based even though it's the same shade (Santa Fe). I love it too but definitely prefer this one. NARS is just always delivering great products!
