NARS Foundation is a natural looking and lightweight foundation. The coverage is also buildable from medium to heavy consistency. Here a little amount goes a long way.
Coming to the L’Oréal one, it also provides fuller coverage and is very long-lasting on the skin just like the NARS One. But here you need to use a little more product when you compare the quantity with NARS one.
