When NARS sent this to me 2 weeks ago (thank you NARS), I was a bit hesitant to try it. I have a bit of oily skin and the only foundation I use on my face is the MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation and the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream. The reason is because they’re very lightweight, they don’t make my face oily and they provide a very good coverage.
But NARS’ packaging got me at ‘matte’ and the ‘SPF 30’, so why not give it a try right?
The texture is a bit creamy at first making me feel like it’s going to cake after a few hours, but once it’s all blended in, it actually turns into a powdery texture and starts to give you a matte finish.
This is how it looks after blending.
I love it because you don’t have to wear a powder on top of as it sets on perfectly and also the scent that it has is so nice. I would recommend this for people who has oily skin although not for those who are sensitive to perfumed make-up. I on the other hand, am completely fine with it. So if you ask me if I’m going to purchase this once I finish it, I definitely will!
