Nars Firming Foundation in Deauville6:03 AM
I got these samples from the Nars counter in Shangri La days ago. I was suppose to get the Sheer Glow Foundation in the same shade, but it did not quite work for my skin type. I was a little bit sad because I was really excited in getting the Sheer Glow because of its fabulous reviews. Sad to say, after only 2 hours, my face started to feel a bit greasy, especially around the nose area. Yesterday, I used this Firming foundation in a birthday party. I did not even put a primer but it lasted decently on my face. The coverage can only be described as my-skin-but-better. It is dewy without being oily so it looks natural. It gets rid of redness and evens me out without being heavy. It is fragrance free and is loaded with beneficial ingredient that may combat the signs of aging. It only took me a relatively small amount of the foundation to cover my entire face. I only used my fingers to blend it evenly on my face. I will be trying the Sheer Matte foundation soon. If that will not also work on me, I will definitely purchase this one instead. How I just wish that the packaging of the actual product is also transparent so that I will be able to see the amount of foundation left inside. Retails for $50 or Php2750.
