There's longwear. And then there's strongwear. For the bold ones. The naturals. The rule-breakers, and the tastemakers. The ones who don't compromise, never back down, and always show up. Meet Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, the first 16-hour, fade-resistant foundation that improves skin by the hour and stays true. Skin Recognition Pigments match your skin tone, delivering your most authentic coverage yet, while NARS' Skin Optimizing Complex refines skin from the inside, out. Its full coverage never masks skin, but stays breathable, and unstoppably natural-looking. In 33 skin-matching shades. Let's stay stronger, longer.

Find your perfect shade of NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation.

Dispense one pump or a pearl sized amount of Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and warm with fingertips. A little goes a long way - concentrated pigments ensure only a small amount is needed for full-face application. Too much formula accentuates lines and imperfections. Avoid excess application around eyes or contours of the face. Apply foundation starting at the center of the face and blend out with fingertips. Focus on one area at a time and blend well.

Sticks to dry spots and nose pores

By I like nars but

from San Diego

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Poor Coverage

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

Not for dry skin. I wanted to like this but unfortunately it sticks to all my dry areas and makes it more pronounced.
Even with Laura Mercier primer, this is super ugly!! Goes into my nose pores and dots everywhere! I'm going to add moisturizer to it to see if it'll work. I got it with 20% off and it looks great everywhere else on my face. Light weight almost like a B.B. cream. Not medium coverage.

i really like it

By haley

from not saying

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I really like the way my skin looks after I put this on, but my only problem is when I get out of school it's patchy on my nose and chin. it needs touch ups throughout the day. but I would recommend if you have normal to dry skin and even some with oily if you can make it work.

favorite foundation!

By Shi

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

this makes my skin look beautiful, covers all my redness and let's my freckles peak through and doesn't look cakey. I have very dry skin so I don't powder my face and this still lasts all day.

Not for fair neutral oily skin that's acne prone

By Ashley

from Las Vegas

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I tried using this foundation and there are only two shades on the pale spectrum. I chose Oslo because I felt that would be the closest match for me. I searched it once it arrived and it has such a hatch pink undertone that it gives almost a cast to my skin. It also did not go well over texture and by only wearing it for 4 hours I felt like I had to take it off. It felt like I had been wearing it 10 hours and it was so oily to my skin( however it did look pretty good in the mirror, but it should it was only 2 hours). I will say that I gave it an extra star bc the shade Oslo is very fair and if someone does have an extremely pink undertone this could work for them. Not worth the money drugstore foundations have done more for me.

Not what I had hoped

By Sarabarracuda

About Me Budget Buyer

Pros

  • Good Pigmentation
  • Matte Finish
  • Provides good coverage

Cons

  • Difficult To Apply
  • Doesn't Stay On
  • Highlights texture
  • Maximizes Pores

Best Uses

  • Full Coverage

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I, like many others, really wanted to love this product. The gentleman who helped me with it in the store was very nice and initially the application seemed great. Unfortunately it was not long lasting. I have tried everything (fingers, brush, sponge, primer, no primer, water based, silicone based, setting spray, no setting spray, less product, more product) and scoured Youtube tutorials and I cannot get this foundation to look good/stay on my skin. If you have any texture on your skin this is going to highlight it majorly. The application itself was hit or miss, with the foundation actually pulling off of my face at points while applying with a damp sponge and caking to the point of having to be taken off and reapplied even with one pump for my whole face. I have normal to combo skin (I only get dry if I have a breakout, I never have to worry about oiliness), have large pores and am getting some fine lines. Within a couple of hours this foundation sinks into and defines every pore and line on my face and disappears from other places inexplicably. So frustrated, and unfortunately I will be returning. I tried everything because I hate to return something like makeup when I have used it but I just can't make this workable for me.

Love this foundation but the bottle broke :(

By Kayluv

from Arizona

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

This is a good foundation you only have to use a small pump. Only problem is the packaging and Ulta's return policy. My foundation was new, only got a few uses out of it but it accidentally slipped out of my makeup bag and shattered :( I called Ulta but they said it's my fault so they can't exchange it. I wish it was in a more sturdy bottle or high quality plastic bottle.

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Apply
  • Goes On Smoothly

Cons

  • Causes Breakouts
  • Doesn't Stay On
  • Poor Coverage
  • Pricey / Poor Value

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation:

I was really hoping this would live up the the quality of Nars. It did not. I have normal to dry skin with mild breakouts. The color was great and it applied easily. It is a much tackier texture than the all day foundation by Nars. It is so tacky that it sticks to itself as the day progresses and looks very patchy. I would not call this full coverage even though it feels very heavy on your face. Overall, I was disappointed.

  • Q:

    I currently use Stromboli (medium with olive undertones) and need a lighter version of the same but none of the light versions have olive undertones - only yellow or golden. Which would be closest to an olive undertone - yellow or golden?
    Asked on 4/4/2018 by anitazim from Springfield, MO

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      I would go with something with a more yellow undertone vs golden for your skin tone.

  • Q:

    Hello I wear Stromboli in the luminous foundation what color would I be in the radiant foundation?
    Asked on 3/24/2018 by Hanna from Modesto ca

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      We have Stromboli as well in our new Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I would try this shade first as you are likely to be match well. However, due to formula differences between All Day Luminous and Natural Radiant you could be a shade or two lighter or deeper. For the best match, head to your nearest Ulta and have a Beauty Adviser match you.

  • Q:

    I tend to get dry skin on and off so would you say this product drys matte or more dewy ?
    Asked on 3/11/2018 by Jen from Virginia

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Our Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation provides a medium to full coverage look that leaves a more radiant and glowing finish rather than a matte one. If you tend to lean towards having dry skin, prep your face first with a great moisturizer before applying this foundation.

  • Q:

    Would this foundation be good for oily skin?
    Asked on 3/9/2018 by Victoria from Oregon, US

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Our Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is an oil-free 16 hour wear foundation that will leave your skin with a beautiful radiant and glowing finish. Since the foundation is oil free you should not have any issues, however if you are looking for a more matte finish foundation I would try our All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.
