I really love NARS Sheer Glow Foundation! I have combination skin which usually gets very oily in my nose area and although the foundation has got a dewy texture its not to oily that it slides off. I do find if I use a primer underneath it does make it last a lot longer.
I am obsessed with finding that 'perfect' foundation and I have gone through so many products. When I heard about the Sheer Glow I was so desperate to try it and boy was I glad when I did.
It's a very build able coverage (I don't like to use it all over my face, just in the redder areas and blend it out) but also can be very light. I blend it using a buffing brush and it gives the most amazing flawless but natural finish. I don't feel like it clogs my pours and it does seem to allow my skin to breath. I also have read that it is meant to make your skin 'better and brighter', and I don't know if it's because I'm using a few new products in my skin routine, but this product has seemed to make my skin brighter and more awake and also hasn't broke me out!!
It's a little pricey but so worth it if your looking for a natural skin, glowey, amazing look. I recommend this to anyone!
Not for me
I tried this and it just did not give me the look or coverage I was going for. I am a big fan of Nars products but this one did not do it for me. I also started breaking out when I used this for some time. I ended up returning it to Sephora.
Not enough coverage and no glow
LOVE THIS foundation.
I have been using MAC studio fix fluid(NW45) for years, and wanted to try something that is lighter, but still provided me with some coverage. This NARS foundation has a wide range of colors to suit the needs every skin tone. It is very blendable and gives the skin a satiny type finish. I wouldn't say it has any type of "GLOW", but for me, the glow was the fact that my extremely dry skin was moisturized and could actually shine with this foundation.
Awesome product! Everything I could ever want in a foundation!
I've used everything from just about every cheap Walgreens brand to Lancome and MAC and I'd have to say this is by far my favorite foundation! I love to use a "full coverage" foundation but its really hard to find one that gives you full coverage without looking too heavy..Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is the best of both worlds! You can build it as much as you need and its still light and breathable. I always moisterize before using concealer and foundation but I have found that with this product I can skip that step if Im short for time and still get a hydrated,long-lasting effect! Love this product!! I give it 5 stars! Shoot, I give it SIX! :) (for some reason the the star meter will not let me grade it higher than a 4.5)
Truly one of the best foundations I have ever tried! Even though it's sheer, it covers more than you think it would and it evened out my complexion quite nicely. It didn't feel heavy on my face and the little glow looks more like your glowing from within, than if you splashed glitter all over your face. The price tag is a little steep, but it's worth every single penny. You honestly don't need to use that much, so it should last you a few months if you're a daily wearer like me, even longer if you're not.
Highs: Gives your skin a healthy look; comes off like a second skin; evens out your complexion without all the heaviness.
Lows: The price tag is a little steep, but you won't be sorry you spent it, at all!
Love this NARS foundation! It goes on so smooth and is completely blendable to build the level of coverage you want. Best of all it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all! Can wear it all day long with no redness or itching.
Only real down side is the price ($90AUD) although you can get great coverage with only the tiniest bit so it will last you awhile, i still don't think its really worth the hefty price tag it comes with down under.
I absolutely LOVE this foundation! It matches my skin tone perfectly and the coverage is definitely buildable. I have combination-oily skin, and this product is great. Hasn't caused me to break out or anything. Leaves my skin looking dewy, not oily. I do sometimes set it with my MAC MSFNatural in Medium.
Overall, I'm in LOVE!
