If you are looking for a new foundation, I got you covered. I decided to start a foundation series over on my Insta page because I realised I have a few foundations and its only best to share which ones work well and have enough shades for dark skin tones! So the challenge I set myself is this, every month (I made a rota guys smh), I stick to using 1 foundation and report back to you guys. I am loving the challenge so far because I am enjoying rediscovering some foundations I had in my collection! Doing this has also shown me how far I have come in selecting better foundation shades & undertones for my skin tone. I am also learning how to work with the shades that aren’t quite a good match but not bad enough to sell or throw away
Anyway, let’s get into it!
For March I was using the Natural Radiant Foundation in New Caledonia. I know this post is super late, sorry!
This is the latest foundation from NARS and it’s already a hit! New Caledonia is described as dark with golden olive undertones
This is a full coverage extremely lightweight foundation that blends seamlessly into the skin. I love how smooth it leaves my skin. It has a truly natural radiant finish. I find this foundation long lasting and still looks amazing even hours after application! It pairs well with a lot of concealers but I think it looks amazing with the NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer or the Kat Von D lock it concealer. NARS claims this foundation is sweat and transfer resistant but hmm this slides off like my other foundations when I sweat albeit not as easily or quickly but it is definitely not transfer resistant even after setting with a powder. I think it’s the same as any other foundation
The Natural Radiant Foundation comes in 33 shades and so many undertones for #darkskin. NARS did an amazing job with this collection! I was matched to 3 diff shades! But chose New Caledonia in the end. NARS can sell me any foundation and Imma buy it!
