From the loins of We Tried It comes He Tried It, a new column where the women of YouBeauty give a male friend/coworker one of our beauty products and make him report back after using it for a week.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, $48

What’s your normal skincare routine?

My normal skincare routine consist of an oil cleanser, a few serums, an SPF, and a night cream.

Day One:

Is this foundation easy to use? Were you able to use it yourself or did you need help from a friend/Google? Do you notice any results?

My first impressions of the foundation was that it was a medium- to full-coverage liquid foundation. I was able to use it for myself without any help. It had a nice thick consistency which I love out of my foundations because it is easy to mold and sculpt into whatever I want.

Did wearing foundation make you feel sexier? Did people notice changes in your skin? Did it feel strange to use it?

This product made me feel a lot better about myself. I like anything that has multiple uses and I found that this foundation acted as a great neutralizer and highlighter. No one noticed a huge change in my skin because it looked like I was wearing nothing. I didn’t feel strange using it because I actually prefer creams and liquid foundations compared to powders.

Tell us something else about your week wearing foundation. 

It had a really nice matte finish for me. I have oily skin so powder is a must, but this products helps with that step. My morning routine was a lot faster than usual with this foundation.
