NARS Foundation Review

I have recently bought my first NARS foundation! I've wanted to treat myself, to an expensive foundation, for a while now, because I found the drugstore brands just weren't cutting it. I had done a lot of research on the products already out there and, based on reviews and recommendations for my skin type, I decided to delve into the world of NARS. 

So, I took a trip to the NARS counter in Selfridges, The Trafford centre. As soon as I got there, the woman couldn't have been more helpful. She helped me pick out the perfect product and shade for my face. She told me, as I have combination skin, I would be better off using the 'All Day Luminous Weightless' foundation, rather than the typical bloggers favourite 'Sheer Glow'. 
I'm in love! It's so easy to put on and it literally feels like you have nothing on your skin. Eventhough it's a full coverage foundation, it doesn't feel cakey and it doesn't go patchy halfway through the day. 

I couldn't say how long the bottle lasts as I've only had it for a few weeks. However, I literally only use a grape sized amount on my entire face, so I think it's going to last a while. The consistency is rather watery, which can make it a turn off for most people; It nearly was for me, as I'm used to more creamier foundations. Nevertheless, when I put it on my face, it felt seamless! 
This particular foundation is priced at £32, which is a little pricy, but it's totally worth it! If you aren't prepared to pay that much, I've listed some alternatives that would work just as well if you have oily/combination skin like me. 
For the mean time this is my view on NARS, however, I'm keen to see how my opinion will differ when I get to try more of their products. 

The alternatives: 

•Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
•LOreal Paris True Match Minerals Foundation
•Rimmel stay matte foundation
