New Love: NARS Sheer Matte Foundation

21 September 2009

I finally made my decision! I chose NARS Sheer Matte foundation. Don't get me wrong, it was a tough decision because i love both formulation and i wish i can afford to take both but I can't so it came down to the "season" as my major criteria of selection.. LOL

Since it's spring is in and soon it's summer so I would really love to be shine free and a matte foundation can help me achieve that hence the arrival of my new love!

PROS:

  1. Sheer yet it gives your skin the coverage you wanted
  2. Lightweight so it feels like there's nothing on your skin (love!)
  3. Easy to work with - i use my fingers if i am late and brush if i've got time and still get the same results :)
  4. I find that i don't have to set it with powder :) but you have to remember - this is the matte formulation so maybe that's why.
CONS:
  1. pricey :(
  2. It doesn't have a pump BUT that is solved!!! The following day after I got it, I went back to Mecca Cosmetica and asked if they sells pumps and they don't anymore BUT he gave me one from one of the old testers! Much appreciated :) now that's what I call Customer Service :)



This foundation is available at Mecca Cosmetica and I got the shade Barcelona (Medium 4)

Thank you Dr.mw for the lovely Eid present :) Eid Mubarak! I am easily pleased. Buy me makeup and I am pleased HAHAHAHA

  2. hi :) i know i just watched her vid as well :) well accdg to the MUA, matte is great for oily-combination skin while glow for dry-normal skin.

    get both samples and try it.
