Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

I've been using the same foundation - Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin - for about two years now. When my most recent bottle ran out I decided that I wanted to try out a new brand and formula. After a little research, I went for the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

I didn't have a clue what shade to go for so I waited until I could pop to a counter and get colour matched properly instead of ordering online. I was matched to the shade 'Vienna' and it looks pretty good. 
This foundation is described as a lightweight, breathable formula with buildable coverage. It has natural looking finish and luminous glow. 
I apply this foundation with a brush and then blend it out with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. It looks beautiful when first applied. It evens out my sometimes blotchy skintone and covers any blemishes. It looks glowy and natural - not caky. Unfortunately it doesn't last very long on me. I have very long days at school - leaving at 7am and not getting home until 5pm at the earliest. By lunch time the Natural Radiant Foundation has already started to breakdown around my nose and chin, and my oiliness is certainly showing through. Even if I touch my skin a tiny bit it removes the makeup there. 
I think if my skin wasn't as oily as it is then this would be the perfect foundation. It looks beautiful but it is such a shame that it just dissapears and ends up looking awful on me. I guess I'll have to go back to my Revlon ColorStay Makeup.
