NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation Wear Test + Review [YouTube]

If not, congrats, now you know there’s a quiz you can take on Sephora’s website to find the foundation of your dreams. …Or, at least one that fits your preferences. Out of all of the formulas that fit my preferences (medium to full coverage, natural finish), the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation was one of the only ones I hadn’t tried yet. After seeing my sister recently, she raved about the formula and then I knew I had to bite the bullet and finally try it myself. Here’s what I think about it in my NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation wear test…
For some background, I’m a fan of NARS products in general.
I used to be a devotee of their Sheer Glow foundation in my early twenties and even before that, swore by NARS Casino bronzer (personally, way better than Laguna for my skin tone). I also hit pan on Amour and Deep Throat blushes. Hitting pan on blushes is hard to do!
I also am a longtime lover of NARS Orgasm gloss – in fact, I just recently repurchased it.
I followed the bandwagon on the Radiant Creamy Concealer (until, of course, Tarte Shape Tape came along).
So, as you can see, I love a good NARS makeup product.

After trying the sample of NARS Natural Radiant Longwear foundation ($49) for a few days, I filmed a wear test on my YouTube channel so you can physically see the way it wore throughout my very basic day. And this is winter time. I definitely can’t imagine this formula holding up too well on me in the summer when it’s hotter and I get more oily.
This foundation looks beautiful on the skin when initially applied.
It even looks good for the first two hours or so.
On my normal/combination skin, it just didn’t hold up for the long haul and I know there are way better full coverage, longwear foundations for my skin type (Estee Lauder Double Wear, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, even the new Maybelline Superstay liquid).
I think this foundation is best suited for those with normal to very dry skin who want a medium to full coverage foundation.
