Today I wanted to share with you all my thoughts on the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation! I purchased this product in late June after trying a sample of it a couple months before and loving it! I visited a Sephora prior to purchasing it to see what my shade would be. In a rush, I figured Punjab would be the closest match to my skin tone (WRONG!). Side note: take the time and have a Sephora employee help you pick out your shade… if you’re going to spend the money, get it right!
When I ordered the product a few weeks later and tried it out, I realized it did not match my skin whatsoever. Punjab has more of a yellow undertone which clearly looked out of place on my face. Annoyed since I spent $48 but loved the finish and coverage it provided, I decided that I would keep it and just mix it with a different foundation with hopes it would match my skin (MISTAKE #2). Don’t ask me why I didn’t just return the foundation and get a shade that matched… like hello Olivia. Anyways, the more I used the foundation and had to mix it with a different foundation, the more I stopped wanting to use it. By this point, it was obviously too late to return it at Sephora and exchange it for my correct shade. So doing what any college student would do who wasted $48 on a foundation, I listed it on my Poshmark closet at a discounted price with hopes that someone who is the shade ‘Punjab’ will purchase it from me and I can use that money to buy my correct shade (Shameless promotion: purchase it HERE).
Anyway, I guess I should actually do a review on this product… Like I said before, I initially purchased it because I was sent a sample of it from Sephora and I absolutely loved it. If you want more coverage some days and a matte finish, this product is for you. The only downside to the product is there is not a pump. I feel like if you spend that much money on a foundation, it should be a little easier to get out of the bottle. There is just a stick that is connected to the top you have to use… I feel like I am doing arts and crafts when I use it. Besides that and obviously not getting the correct shade, I love it! Once I finally purchase another bottle (in my shade), I will do an updated review. But until then I hope you learned from my mistake!
And remember, if you are looking to buy this product and you’re the shade Punjab, you can buy it right HERE!
