On the Fence: Nars Radiant Cream Foundation

by Joyce in


Nars recently released their Radiant Cream Foundation and I was SO excited to try it as their Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is one my favorite products ever. I've been testing this foundation for a few weeks now, and I'm sad to say that it wasn't love at first sight.

Housed in a small compact, the Nars Radiant Cream Foundation is a super creamy formula, and that is initially what caught my attention. While you can purchase the proper compact with a mirror and a slot for your sponge for $10, I decided to skip it as the product is perfectly usable without.

I love the coverage as well, though I did initially have a hard time figuring out the best way to apply this foundation. In the end, the Real Techniques Expert Face brush won, though I have heard that the BeautyBlender is a good one too. 

My least favorite aspect of this foundation, and perhaps a dealbreaker, is that it doesn't fare well on dry skin. I was able to see some dry patches on my skin on some days, and the overall texture of my skin just didn't look that great close up if I tried to retouch my makeup at any point. 

Do take a peek at the video below, where I chat more about this foundation and apply it on camera! What do you think about Nars Radiant Cream Foundation? Did it work for you?
