It’s been a long time coming. For pretty much every wishlist I have created on this blog, most of them have contained the Nars Sheer Glow and it looks like I have finally checked it off! When it comes to foundation I’ve always had a bit of a struggle. A lot of drugstore foundations don’t sit right with my skin, they are either cakey, not long lasting or stick to dry patches. So being a lover of Nars and with a well hyped reputation I had to make the splurge and I had pretty high expectations to say the least. After trying this out, I can definitely say it lived up to the expectations!
I picked this up from Space NK after gaining a little £5 reward on my card making the scary price a little less scary. The shade matching was a pretty easy job, I spotted my shade a mile away and the shop assistant was definitely in agreement. I tend to have a thing with the second lightest shade of foundations and it was no surprise after picking up the shade Mont Blanc (Light 2) to which the shop assistant also told me was the most popular shade in the store.
Now back to the foundation itself. The name ‘Sheer glow’ is a bit of a weird one. This foundation is anything but sheer, it does give the impression that it is very light coverage however it has a very buildable coverage. The foundation blends really easily too and creates such a flawless base that hardly needs concealer (for me anyway). The foundation is more of a dewy base but isn’t overly glowy, it makes the skin look naturally radiant and brighter.
The longevity is a major plus point when it comes to buying foundation. I really don’t want to come home with half my foundation worn away, lets be honest its not pretty! Nars Sheer Glow definitely offers a long lasting base. It lasts really well on my skin and after a full day away I always come home to a base that still looks super flawless! The only issue I have with this foundation is the pump problem. You may be aware that the Nars Sheer Glow doesn’t come with a pump and you have to buy it separately. However thats a whole other problem itself as no where seems to stock a pump! So for the time being I have to dip my brush in the bottle and hope for the best really!
Overall though, an amazing foundation. For the time being I can sacrifice the pump-less bottle for the guarantee of a flawless base. Without a doubt, the best foundation I have ever used (so far).
