Final Thoughts
I got this at TJ MAxx and even though the shade was off, I still wanted to test the formula. It’s very yellow, as are most NARS products, but I made it work with a white mixer. It was easy to blend and full coverage with one layer. My nose is usually a problem area and the space between my brows is very dry. This foundation clung to the dryness I have in that are and it looked awful. I wear glasses so foundation usually wears off where they rest on my cheeks and this one did the same. I set with a radiant powder and it gave it a nice, healthy finish. By the end of the day, more forehead was oily/shiny and the foundation had separated. This powder and white mixer works fine with other foundations so I know it’s the foundation that is the problem. This is a pass for me, especially I at that price.
