Sheer Matte Foundation
Radiant skin and an improved make-up free complexion
For years I wore Mac foundation until wearing SPF 25 every day stabilised my skin tone to a creamy, almond shade (I exfoliate regularly so in the summer months I could go up to 4 shades darker!). Suddenly the Mac make-up I relied on was WAYYYYY too dark and my neck was a completely different colour. I was really embarrassed so I started to look again at the foundations on the market.
I came across this product and it completely surpassed my expectations. I get so many complements wearing this foundation. I wear the Benares shade and it has just the right amount of gold/yellow to lift and emphasise my natural shade and even at 6pm after a full days wear it still looks good, natural and not too dark or orange. It has great hold and is a pleasure to apply – Not too heavy, not too runny and blends easily. I completely recommend it. More importantly, I absolutely feel that my make-up free complexion has been greatly improved by the turmeric extract in this foundation as well. It’s very difficult for dark skins to find foundations that enhance their natural, multi-tonal skin shade rather than mask it in colouring that’s (a) Too brown; (b) Too yellow; (c) Too grey; (d) Too red or (e) Too orange. Foundation is a very difficult thing for cosmetics companies to get right because there are so many different tones of brown skin. Nars have nailed it.

Best colour match I've ever found
Nars has an incredible selection of very pale shades and is one of the only brands I've ever tried which doesn't turn my very fair irish skin a shade of orange. this foundation can be worn quite sheer during the day to even out my complexion and built up a bit for evening wear. Highly recommended!

Finally - foundation pale enough
It's so hard to find something pale enough for my skin. This is lighter than Mac's NC15 and gives a lovely finish.
