NARS Radiant Cream compact foundation review

Nars radiant cream compact foundation

Just a quickie today with my thoughts on the NARS radiant cream compact foundation.

Am not sure why I bought this compact as I am not usually one for solid cream foundations that need a sponge to apply. (FYI you need to buy the compact and the foundation insert separately.  And I have lost the sponge.  The perils of having cats)

But hey I must have been persuaded to try it whilst browsing Space NK and after testing it out, overall it's surprisingly good.  But sadly not for oily skintypes like mine.

I personally don't like sponges for application but you could use the included sponge or a damp beauty blender.  I use a brush, dipping it straight into the compact and onto my skin.

It's surprisingly (that word again!) easy to work with and blend into the skin, it buffs in nicely giving a light to medium coverage but is easily buildable to a heavier medium to full coverage.  It's creamy but not tacky and leaves a dewy radiant finish.  This foundation is perfect for girls with dry skin-I am sure of it.  I find it gets a little too glowy too quickly for my liking.  A little too much radiance.

It comes in the usual NARS shade range-from Siberia to Khartoum but I had to go a shade down from my usual NARS shade so bear that in mind if you're ordering online your Sheer Glow shade may not be your Radiant Creamy Compact shade.

I bought the foundation for £28 and the empty compact for £7, both from Space NK.
