From PR:

Expanding its foundation lineup, NARS introduces Radiant Cream Compact Foundation.  This lightweight formula combines the supple feel of a cream foundation with the weightless coverage of liquid makeup for a truly glowing complexion.

Enriched with the NARS exclusive Advanced Emulsion Technology, the velvety cream formula blends seamlessly and uniquely allows for the modern artistic versatility of a wet or dry application.  The buildable formula delivers medium to full coverage and sets in seconds, leaving skin soft, smooth and glowing — all with the ease of a portable compact.
