I wanted to show you my NARS foundation swatches side by side. I think you’ll be amazed at how the unblended foundation just melds with my skin. From left to right we have:

Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF30/PA+++ in Finland – Lightest with a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones
Sheer Matte Foundation in Siberia – Light 1 – Light with neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones
Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia – Light 1 – Light with neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones
Powder Foundation in Siberia – Light with neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones


Yes, I know that it looks like Sheer Glow and the Pressed Foundation are practically invisible on my skin. I know I applied the powder to the right of Sheer Glow. I am amazed at how it just blends in. Sheer Matte would blend in too, if I blended it out. With Sheer Matte, you need to apply it to one section of your face at a time, blending as you go, or it won’t look right. I’ve only worn the Tinted Moisturizer once so far, but it did blend in well, despite being the darkest of the swatches above.

Every time I wear the Sheer Glow or the Pressed foundation I get compliments on my skin. NARS Siberia was the first department store foundation that I’ve found that truly matches my skintone and I love it. I look forward to playing with the tinted moisturizer and the sheer matte. I’ll definitely be reviewing them.

I thought it was neat to see how they looked swatched side by side.

$42 Sheer Glow Foundation for 1 oz.
$42 Sheer Matte Foundation for 1 oz.
$45 Powder Foundation SPF 12 for .4 oz.

While these are definitely some of the more expensive foundations I own, I do really like the quality of the products and I love the fact that they actually match my skintone! Additionally I have to say that I’ve received top notch customer service both online and in store with NARS. It was refreshing to be treated nicely after being snubbed by another company when I was trying to ask for more information about their product, but more on that later.

Do you own any NARS products? Have you tried any of their foundations? Is it hard for you to find a perfect match in foundation?
