Are you tired of trying countless foundations that don't live up to your expectations? As a beauty editor with oily-combination skin prone to acne, I understand the struggle. But fear not, because I've discovered a game-changer for our tricky skin types - the NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation.

The Quest for the Perfect Foundation

Finding the right foundation can be a challenge. Striking the balance between a matte and radiant finish seems impossible. Too matte and our skin looks flat, while excessive shine accentuates oily areas. But now, a new breed of foundation has emerged - soft matte.

Soft matte foundations offer a hybrid between a natural and fully 'done' look. These formulas provide enough coverage to control shine without sacrificing luminosity. One of my recent favorites is the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. So, when NARS, renowned for its iconic complexion products, announced the release of their Soft Matte Complete Foundation, my excitement knew no bounds.

Putting NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation to the Test

As soon as I received a sample, I knew I had to review it. Let me walk you through the results. Before applying the foundation, I prepared my skin with SPF, using Ultra Violette’s Supreme Screen SPF50+ Hydrating Skinscreen. I have some UV damage and pigmentation, along with a few fading spots.

I applied the product, which felt creamier than other NARS foundations, using a beauty sponge. The coverage was buildable, and with about two squeezes, I achieved the medium-to-full coverage I desired.

The initial results were impressive. My pores appeared less visible, and the foundation looked beautiful on my skin. It subtly masked my pigmentation and spots without looking heavy. Unlike many matte foundations, it didn't dry out my skin. This can be attributed to the bio hyaluronic acid in the formula, which helps maintain a smooth complexion.

Seamless Integration with Other Makeup

I continued with the rest of my makeup routine and was delighted to discover that the NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation played well with the other products. It didn't rub off or disappear when I applied bronzer, blush, and illuminator. The foundation felt "set" enough that I didn't need to use setting powder or spray on top. Impressive!

Long-Lasting Performance

Although I haven't worn it for a full day yet, after 5 hours, my base remained intact. The foundation didn't budge or evaporate. It still looked natural, with subtle improvements, and it didn't feel heavy or look "sweaty." The NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation offers a solid shade range, with 34 hues to choose from.

My Final Verdict

After trying the NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation, I'm completely hooked. It has earned a prominent place in my makeup routine, surpassing my other foundations for the foreseeable future. If you have oily-combination skin, I would argue that it surpasses the brand's best-selling Sheer Glow foundation. However, if you're a fan of the glowy finish of the original, you may not want to part ways just yet.
