NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation Review


Foundation, who has been wearing them?

Surprisingly, I do!  I wear then in exchange for concealers at times because it gives off a more natural effect yet has good concealing + correcting powers.

A recent discovery that got me hooked?

I have tried wearing NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation on the most humid days with 36-38 deg Celcius temperture.  So far, I need to set this with a translucent powder to make sure I don’t look oily or greasy.  The foundation does not add up to my oiliness but my oil will shine through if I did not set it properly because of the weather.

What I love about this foundation is how great the coverage it gives.  I get medium to medium full coverage with just a few amount and I honestly like to use this as concealer especially on dry patches around my face as it hydrates and controls oil at the same time.  I don’t know about you but I get a super fresh, clean base whenever I use this makeup.

It does give a dewy and glowing finish so if you have pumps around your face, it COULD enhance it so you may stick to a matte finish foundation from NARS.  

But if you are like me who has issues on dark undereye circles, random redness and sallowness.  This is  foundation you may want to check out!

NARS Soft Matte Complete foundation is available in all NARS boutique and counters near you.  And if you use code NARSNIKKI for your first Purchase at the Beauty Butler, you get 15% off pa!
