I've been having real "first world crisis"... finding the perfect foundation has been real struggle. I tried all of the drugstore (Revlon Colorstay, L'oreal True Match, Rimmel London, Cover Girl, etc.) I even went through all of the MAC foundations but NONE of them made my skin look flawless. I wanted FULL coverage, weightless foundation, that could last all day. And to find the perfect color was also a problem for me. The color would be either to orange or to ashy for my skin tone. I've been dancing around the idea of purchasing the NARS All Day Luminous foundation but I can not get over the price. $48 for a foundation??? I just couldn't see myself doing that. But one day walking around on 34th in NYC, after returning my MAC foundation at MACYS. I decided to walk across the street to Sephora. I made a B line straight to the NARS section. I couldn't resist the packaging and the way the bottle felt in my hand. I studied to shades before picking the one I thought would be for me. I then reached over to select "Tahoe" opened it and tried it on the jawline of my face. With to swipes, it disappeared into my skin like magic. And I thought "this is it!" and I hurried towards the cash register to purchase it. From that moment on, I have no regretted spending the $48 on this foundation. It is seriously the BEST foundation I have ever tried. I really don't know why I was so hesitant before to buy it. Either way the money was well worth it. The color match? Perfect. Long lasting? Check. Full Coverage? Definitely! the only that's missing is a primer before you apply, it can settle into the fine lines after awhile but the pay off is great. I will definitely be purchasing this again.
