Will mini sizes of anything ever not be adorable? Not in my house.
I’m a HUGE fan of NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (and that wasn’t always the case). A year after my initial test of this product my skin morphed somehow and this became my go-to foundation over the Summer months. Why only Summer? Because the shade I had was way too dark for me otherwise. TBH it’s probably a little too dark for even the Summer because I tend to steer clear of the sun as much as possible.
Maybe it was the skincare and primer that changed along with my skin a bit? No clue, but NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation covers like I need it, doesn’t feel or look heavy and wears well.
Now that you know I love the full size you’ll be happy to learn that you can now grab a MINI size of the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (exclusively at ULTA Beauty!).
The full size of the NARS retails for $49 for 1.01 oz. whereas the mini is $24 for 0.5 oz. Pricing is a bit higher than other brands but then NARS is considered slightly more luxury than the other brands I found minis for. For example, the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream retails for $39 for 1.08 oz. whereas their mini is $15 for 0.4 oz.. Tarte Face Tape retails for $39 for 1.01 fl. oz. and the mini is $15 for 0.338 fl. oz..
The full size of the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation has a pump and the mini does not. This, for me, is the only downside. $24 is pricey for a mini (even though you’re getting a good bit of product) and I just don’t like the way you’d dispense. Plus it also seems messy in terms of travel and with mini sizes you want them to be as travel friendly as possible.
Either way, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is one of the greats and the mini makes it more accessible for those that are budget-minded or maybe just need a darker shade for the Summer only.
