Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve even using this foundation for a few years and I don’t have any negative comments to say about it. I love that it lightweight and my face doesn’t feel “caked” in make up however I can build on the coverage for a night out. I have one question though, does this foundation have any sun protection in it?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this after reading plenty of reviews on various websites, goes on lovely with a flat top brush, not as heavy as my usual brand and sets well, I also noticed my highlighter pops a little more than usual which is a bonus! But after only 6 hours of wear I have cracks in my smile lines and on my forehead. Gutted if I'm honest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of THE best foundations! This is one of the best foundations and is a staple in my kit, it gives a gorgeous silky dewy look, perfect for Bridal makeup where you don't want to look too cakey or covered in foundation. The coverage is build able, granted its not great for oily skin types but for combo - dry skin its awesome especially with primer. I have 6/7 shades in my kit and my clients don't regret it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Far too oily The color is fine a little on the yellow side. My biggest let down however is its so watery. It will take ages to dry and when it finally does its patchy. Definetly not worth the price, drug store makeup has a better formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product ! I am a professional make up artist. When I found this foundation, I do not need any more. I love it, because it do not has spf and it is perfect for foto shoots. I love everything about NARS. And the colours are perfect. I love santa fe for my clients so much. In this foto I put a lot of products from NARS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Have only used the foundation once but seems to be really good and very light coverage but buildable good for normal to dry skin only downfall is you have to buy the pump separate baring in mind the foundation alone is £33 and once you have the pump in the foundation bottle you can no long use the lid as it does not fit on which is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation! The best foundation I have ever used. I have combination skin and it looks lovely on and stays on all day without looking oily or cakey. Only downside is the pump - having to buy it separatey is poor considering the cost. Once the pump is attached the top no longer fits! Poor bottle design and useless for travel!
