The NARS all day luminous powder foundation with SPF 24 comes with a stylish and compact square package having a mirror at front and a super fluffy sponge on the bottom. Want to know what's special about the sponge? Well, believe it or not, it comes with two unlike textures.
Yes! One super-soft surface for a velvet touch and another side is a bit thicker with a surface like a sponge. I personally prefer using the spongy side, ask me why? Because the spongy side will carry more product that you can easily apply onto your skin with a single swipe. Plus! It gives more volume and coverage of the product on your skin with a buff looking texture on your skin.

TESTING THE PRODUCT
The reason I found it super lightweight on my skin is its ability to stand alone on my skin without added coats of the foundation. It is incredibly smooth and has long wearing power of at least 12 hours, trust me you will not need to carry this product with you every time for occasional touch-ups.
HOW TO USE NARS ALL DAY LUMINOUS POWDER FOUNDATIONYou can use this foundation with dry or wet application.
For Dry ApplicationIf you are looking for a natural look, then you can use the thicker sponge side for better coverage and a matte look. If you are looking for a luminous finish, then you should go for the super soft fluffy side of the sponge.
For Wet ApplicationYou can use a slightly dampen sponge for an extremely polished touch to your face. The wet application can be ideal for party makeup with an extended coverage.
Quick tip: For an even and smooth coat, get yourself the square sponge or round puff separately from NARS.
“After testing these products on my skin I found a minor difference between applications with sponge and puff. If you need a super smooth and lightweight coat, go for the brush otherwise for a non-fluffy and heavy-looking coats of foundations I suggest you to choose sponge only after preparing your skin with a moisturizer. “
RECOMMENDATIONFor this particular foundation 10/10.
