Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for beginners and dry skin I brought this when I was getting back into foundation. I used to use liquid foundation and I have dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. The WORST COMBINATION and this was amazing. It didnt feel dry or cakey on my skin. It melt perfectly into my skin and my skin was not itchy or breaking out. Now that they are discontinued I am soo bummed. However, I keep getting email ads from them about this product. I really hope they bring it back please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation This is a great foundation. First I’m light tone oily skin with seasonal dryness. Especially now during this coooold winter. Bc I’m oily I have to watch which foundation I choose. When I decided to try this one I found it went on smooth and had great coverage and stayed all day. very pleased with it. During the winter I can add a drop or two of facial oil to it to give my skin a lil extra moisture. The compact holder is also great. Lasted thru 6 compact changes. Thought that was pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great name I haven't used this product before and discovered it on a site where it tells you your shade in multiple different foundations. It said my shade in this product would be 'Ceylan', which is actually my first name :D just thought I should share that X

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nars compact I routinely use this product. I bought 2 of these because the compact style of foundation is being discontinued. I LOVE this product in this form!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for my skin I always have problems finding foundation to blend well with my uneven tone, and combination skin. I wanted a very light coverage, giving a sheer appearance without a chalky or to deep appearance after applying the foundation. This product with a minimal amount and a excellent foundation brush does the trick. I am so happy that I purchased this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True match with perfect coverage I went into Sephora today to buy more of this product. I freaked out when I discovered it was not on the shelf! When checking NARS website, I was relieved that it was not discountinue. That particular retailer just stopped carrying it. Dear NARS, please please please don't ever discontinue this product. The color "Syracuse" is the only true match I have ever found for my medium Asian skin tone. It looks like it would be way too dark for me, but once applied, it melts right into skin shade. All other brands/colors are either too pink or too ashy for me. This color by NARS discribed it as having "brown under tone". Brilliantly perfected!!! I tried the same color in another NARS formula, but I like this Radiant Cream Compact much better. When I first tried it a few years ago, it seemed too heavy and oily for me. Once I discovered "the trick" for the coverage I prefer, it was perfect! A little goes a long way for a light coverage. After applying with the provided sponge, I blend blend blend with a buffing brush. Oh, and I skip my regular moisturizer when I use this. The product contains enough moisture on it's own for my normal-combonation skin. My skin is also sensitive to products causing it to break out. No trouble here at all. It is definitely build-able for those ladies whom like a fuller coverage than me. I am a returning customer for life!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to daily foundation I apply this with my fingers and use an oval brush to blend it, I love it, it's color correcting and looks very natural on the skin. It could be fuller coverage but I don't mind using concealer with it. I got it on amazon seven months ago and am still using it somehow. Great product.
