I am a complete idiot and completely forgot what shade I am in this foundation as I only got a sample and I dont remember the color the SA gave me/she didnt write it on the sample. Maybe this was my first problem, but I had very high expectations for this foundation as I've heard it raved about constantly, as well as the fact that I've seen it on youtube/in fotds and it looks STUNNING. on me, it looked very very cakey and accentuated every dry spot-this never ever happens. yes i exfoliated, moisturized, and used a primer.

Another thing I didn't like is the staying power. It lasted about 4 hours or so on me, even with my favorite setting powder :( Unfortunately, although you only need a little at a time and it was a perfect match shade-wise, I will not be purchasing this. I will do a review on my HG foundation within the next week.

Have you tried NARS foundations? What were your thoughts? xxx

and PLEASE do not hesistate to give me CC :)


  1. I really want to try this one, but we dont have NARS here sadly. Atm i am quite quite satisfied with Clinique foundations. Love ur skin !

  2. Pretty Make-up, really makes your eyes stand out xx

  3. I hate foundations that dont last. I have oily skin so I need the staying power! I love love your eye makeup, it looks so pretty!

  4. I really dont like cakey foundations, Thanks for the review I was thinking about purchasing it and now I am glad I have anthor opinion. I really like the color of your shirt too
