NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation retails for $64 CAD ($49 USD) and it's claimed to be a buildable, full-coverage foundation with up to 16 hours of lightweight, natural, fade-resistant wear. It's available in 34 shades and I got the shade Barcelona.

Here's my review of the foundation. I did a demo, 8-hour wear test and comparison with NARS Sheer Glow Foundation.



NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation comes in a glass bottle and contains 1 oz (30 mL) of product. I'm glad it comes with a pump unlike NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
Coverage: Full
Finish: Natural
Shades: Available in 34 Shades
Application: NARS recommends to apply on clean, moisturized skin without primer. I would recommend using less product because if you use a lot, it can easily end up looking cakey.
I did a 8-hour wear test and I love how the foundation held up during the day. I have combination skin and I get oily on T-zone area and I love the fact that my skin barely looked oily by the end of the day. I definitely think this is a longwearing foundation!  
Overall, I do think it's a good foundation! I like the fact that it's longwearing and provides a full coverage without using too much product. I would recommend using less product as you can because otherwise, it can easily end up looking cakey and the shade might look a little off.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation retails for $63 CAD ($47 USD), which is slightly less than NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation for the same amount of product but you get a pump with this new foundation.

I have the shade Barcelona in both and I haven't really noticed a difference in the shades. The only thing is NARS Natural Radiant Foundation isn't as natural looking as NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and I noticed that if you do end up using a lot of product, the shade of the new foundation might end up looking a little off. 
While NARS Natural Radiant Foundation does provide a better coverage and is more longwearing, I still prefer NARS Natural Radiant Foundation because it's more natural looking, lightweight and photographs better in my opinion. 

For shade reference, I'm in NC40 in MAC.
