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.
