33 shades of radiance: The new Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation
Let there be light
We have fake baking, so why not faux radiance? Especially when we need to cover up the visible signs of too many a rough day at the office until our complexions settle down again. While highlighting certainly helps in giving you on-fleek glow, it's not a product you can slather all over and not come off looking like a crazy, walking disco ball (remember the highlighter challenge that made its rounds on YouTube?).
What you need is a base that bottles radiance from the get-go, aka the new Nars Natural Radiant Longwear foundation, the first 16-hour fade-resistant foundation from the brand. Formulated with a uniquely weightless texture with superior blendability so you'll always look fresh — a technology that's patent pending as you read this line — the foundation contains a skin-optimising complex made from a blend of raspberry, apple and watermelon extracts to support and smooth the skin's elastic fibres, thereby improving your complexion over time.
And while Nars Sheer Glow will always have a place in our Holy Grail assortment, the Radiant Longwear easily comes in at a close second with its buildable, medium-to-full coverage that makes your skin look just like skin (no caked face syndrome there) while delivering some much needed natural-looking luminosity. Available in as many as 33 shades, you're more than likely to find yours, if not you can always count on the specialised pigments to recognise and fuse with your skin for the closest colour match . Now you can totally #Iwokeuplikethis everyday.
The Nars Natural Radiant Longwear foundation will be available from February, $76
