Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Hello Everyone!

Lately, I’ve had this growing obsession with glowing skin so I’ve been trying out a few different liquid highlighters and luminous foundations. I’ve been trying the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation for a few weeks now and here is my overall review based on my skin type which is combination skin.

The foundation claims to stay on for 16 hours. It’s a light weight formula that’s oil free and paraben free. It gives you a natural finish and you can achieve a medium to full coverage. The best way to apply this foundation is by warming it up and working it into your skin by using your fingers. I tried to use it with a brush and I did not like the way it looked or stayed throughout the day.

Details:

  • 1oz/ $57 CAN
  • 20 shades
  • Oil Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Natural Finish
  • Buildable Coverage
  • For all Skin Types

Pros:

  • Packing, it has a pump!
  • Long wearing
  • Photographs well
  • Lightweight
  • Doesn’t oxidize

Cons:

  • Can enhance dry skin
  • Doesn’t last long without a primer

Overall, I do like this foundation. With the summer coming up it most likely will not be my every day foundation. If you are a very dry skin I highly suggest prepping your skin with a hydrating skin care routine and a hydrating primer. If you are an oily skin set your t-zone with a translucent powder. Anyone with combination skin you can also set your t-zone with a powder.

Tried and Tested: Glamglow SUPERCLEANSE!

Hello Everyone!


GlamGlow recently came out with 3 daily cleansers supercleanse, thirstycleanse and youthcleanse. They’re all a mud-foam formula. I have been using the GlamGlow Supercleanse daily cleanser for the past month and a half. This product is phenomenal for problematic skin, or for anyone who wants a quick deep clean! It rinses away pore-clogging debris and impurities. 

You can use this cleanser daily. I like to use it 1-2 times a week! It leaves your skin feeling so clean.  To use this product apply 1-2 pumps onto your fingers and work it onto a dry face. Slowly start applying water to your hands and working it into the product until it begins to lather. Rinse with warm water. It leaves your skin with a mat finish. If you are using this product daily, make sure you keep your skin well hydrated.  

Facts:

  • $43CAN/5oz
  • parabens, sulfates and phthalates free

Pros:

  • comes with a pump
  • deep cleans

Cons:

  • fragrance
  • pump can get clogged
  • can be too drying for combination or dry skin 

Overall, I would definitely recommend this for anyone who is a combination or oily skin type. This helps with excess oil, clogged pores and break outs. Like I mentioned earlier, ensure you’re still moisturizing your skin.  For a dry skin, I wouldn’t recommend this as your daily cleanser since it can really dehydrate your skin. Try using it once a week for a deep clean and also make sure you’re keeping your skin very well hydrated.
