I have been using the NARS foundation for over a year and I thought it was the best! Since I only use foundations on a night out or for events, it lasted me quite a while. So it finally finished and I decided to take some samples of the Giorgio Armani to see what all the fuss has been about. Well… there’s a reason that you’ve heard so many good things about it. It’s definitely THE best. I was told to apply it with a foundation brush first then use the beauty blender to dab over it for a smooth finish. They told me that if I use it with a beauty blender right away, it’ll absorb the foundation into the BB and your foundation will finish faster. The coverage is buildable but it’s lightweight so your face doesn’t feel like it’s “cakey”.
I have dry skin so the luminous silk gives such a beautiful glow. I use my Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil before I apply my foundation and it makes the finished look even better! I usually never get asked what foundation I am wearing but I got so many compliments and questions about it just after the first day I wore it out!
