Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review



I have been using the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation on and off for around 4 years I would say. I actually cannot believe how long it has taken me to get around to writing this post. It is just one of them products for me that I love to use, but then while I am trying something else it will get thrown to the back of my drawer, then I will dig it back out and fall in love with it all over again.
The first thing about this product that I want to mention is the packaging. I love it when a foundation comes in nice packaging. At the end of the day, the packaging is the first thing you see when it comes to a foundation and this has nice, sleek glass packaging that just looks luxurious. If I am paying my hard-earned cash for a high-end foundation I want something that will look nice on my counter top. My only bug-bear with this foundation is that it comes with a screw top and if you want a pump you have to pay extra for it, but I guess it is that once you pay it once you can just switch it to your new bottle.
When you apply this foundation it literally goes on so nice and smoothly. I always apply my foundation brushes with buffing brushes and my favourite one to use is the Morphe M439 and when I use the two together it just blends the foundation out so evenly and smoothly. Honestly when you are applying this to your face it just feels like silk.



When the foundation is on the skin I would say that it does have a dewy look to it but it isn’t too match, it has a very natural glow to it rather than an actual dewy look. Then when it is set with a translucent powder it is locked in place and doesn’t budge. It does make it matte but because the foundation has a nice natural glow to it you still get a nice luminosity coming through.
At first before I bought this foundation I was a little sceptical about it because of it been a glowing foundation. You may know if you have read my blog for some time that I have an oily complexion, so oily products don’t normally work that well with my skin tone but this one is perfect. I will use a mattifying primer like the Benefit Porefessional around my nose to help control my oils and then I am set for the day.
I would say that this foundation gives a medium coverage, but it is definitely buildable. What I like to do is take a small amount of product and blend it in all over my face, then in the areas where I need a little fuller coverage I will just go back in with my buffing brush and press the foundation where I want it and it just helps to pack on the coverage.



When I wear this foundation I always get so many compliments off people because it just makes the skin look really healthy. Another great thing about this foundation is the amount of shades that they carry in their range. I have a friend who has dark skin and she swears by it because it is the only high end brand that she has used that have foundation for really deep skin tones.
I am pretty sure that I paid £31 for this foundation from Space NK and then the pump was an additional £3 I think the first time that I bought it. I really cannot recommend this foundation enough and for that price I think it is absolutely perfect. As normal I will leave a link down below to where you can check this foundation out. Also, if you have any comments or questions about this Nars Sheer Glow Foundation just leave them below and I will get right back to you.
