Nars all day luminous weightless foundation

This is the new foundation that Nars has recently released . I was in space nk with the intention of buying the sheer glow but because they didn't have the pump in stock i opted for this  . I have been trying it out for a while now so i can give you my opinion .

First off i matched my self and i picked a  shade too light but this isn't a major problem since i can use bronzer to warm up my complexion . On application i would recommend that you use a primer to make sure the foundation glides on . I have tried it with and without primer  . The pump dispenses small amount of product but don't be tempted to pump  a whole lot more since a little goes a long way . 

The coverage is medium to full coverage . But i don't see it to be a luminous finish . I would say its more of a matte finish personally .  I don't feel like its weightless either  as the name suggest . This might be down to my combination skin but i feel like it  breaks up around the nose area . I also feel  like it fades during a day . 

To me this is a foundation that i would only reach for if I'm going out for a few hours rather than all day . For the £32 price tag i defiantly don't feel like its worth it for me and wouldn't repurchase it .

tarte amazonian clay full coverage foundation

I am always trying new foundations . This was one that i wanted to try for a while. On a recent trip to imats i decided it was time to give it a go . I am in the shade ivory and it matches perfectly . Its an oil free foundation so it would be perfect to you that has an oilier complexion. My skin is combination since i get a little bit oily in my t zone throughout the day . Also i have some scarring and discolouration so i like a high coverage foundation from time to time to achieve a flawless finish.This defiantly  gives me the coverage that i need on those days.
The application is great as it blends with ease . I like to mix in some strobe cream to give it a more glow , this is just my personal preference . A little goes a long way so don't get carried away. Although it's full coverage i don't feel that it sits on top or sink in to any fine lines  and it looks very natural . This isn't a weightless foundation yet its  comfortable on the skin .  I would highly recommend this foundation and it can be bought from  qvc in a set with a foundation brush for £33.50 :-
