Sheer Glow Foundation

Clogs pores

The description for this foundation makes it sound so great but it is just horrible for skin. It clogs up pores and is greasy. If you are looking for a nice dewy foundation that has beneficial ingredients and makes you look youthful, I recommend Benefits "Hello Flawless" or Lorac's "Breakthrough Performance Foundation"

My friend was joking around that I was so pale, I belong in Siberia. Then we went to the store together and we saw this in the shade Siberia. We had to try it on. It was amazing! We put in on my wrist over a freckle and it made it disappear. The color was great and it matched me perfectly. It's really hard to find a foundation that can compliment my very pale skin. I'm asking for this for Christmas!

I love this foundation! It's medium coverage, but definitely buildable. I have dry/combo/sensitive skin & my skin feels super soft & hydrated, but the oily areas aren't affected. My skin looks luminous & natural, not oily. Love this especially in the fall/winter months. Worth every penny.

One of my favorite foundation!

Although I have oily skin, I heard great things about this foundation. I went to the Sephora during my lunch break and bought it. I use this as my go to foundation. It leaves me skin looking great. I hope they never discontinue this product!

I like this Nars foundation cause it gives you that dewey look. When I first bought this foundation I was colored matched to the wrong color. And because I was in a rush I trusted the consultant ( NEVER TRUST ) always try it out and leave the foundation on till it oxidizes. I looked white as a ghost. It took me a while to repurchase. When I finally did, I myself took EXTRA time and went throught the different colors they had and my true color is Stramboli : ) I really love Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and definitely will purchase again.

Not Worth The Hype.

I went into Sephora today to get color matched to some concealer and also to pick up some things for my Mom. The SA who was helping me had lovely, glowing, yet slightly matte skin, and when I asked what she used, she told me it was this foundation. She went ahead and got me color matched to this in Barcelona which is a tad too yellow, but none the less was the best shade available for me. (Note: I have already tried this product before, and returned it after a day or two because I just thought the price surpassed the quality, but since the SA looked so good, I figured she could give me some tips.) I had already taken all my makeup off on one side of my face so we could see how good the concealer I was getting, covered, and after we finished she offered to apply the foundation to the side of my face. 1. This doesn't have a pump, and for $44.00 dollars that is unacceptable. I won't pay a penny more for an extra pump, and I can't risk breaking out because of bacteria entering the foundation. 2. It covers well ( Medium and Buildable) and blends somewhat nicely, but it settles into my pores and gives me the appearance of fine lines that I don't have with other foundations. 3. It sits on your skin. The SA used a Sephora Brush similar to my F82, and it just SAT on top of my skin, making it look very artificial and plastic whereas my other foundation can be blended in with ease and made to look very skin-like. I thought maybe it was just the lack of preperation I had given my skin before we applied this, so I took a sample pot of it home, used primer, mositurizer, etc and it looked exactly the same. Heavy, flaky, etc. I will be sticking with my MUFE HD.

I don't think there's a better foundation out there! Been using it since fall 2014 and it is still my only foundation that I keep on buying again and again after such long time. The coverage is (for me at least) medium up to full if you apply a couple of layers, yet it looks so good and natural. Foundation is my biggest obsession when it comes to makeup so I would always buy a new one or two...or three while out and about shopping, and none of them compare to Sheer Glow, not even the Armani Luminous Silk or Chanel Perfection Lumiere, to which Sheer Glow gets compared quite a lot. First of all I love the shades, as they lean yellow on the biggest part, my best friend has this in shade Siberia which is supposed to be half yellow and half pink, but in reality is way more yellow than in description, which is a good thing for those with majority of yellow undertones. Second thing is the consistency and thickness of it, this is exactly what I always was searching for. Finally, the finish on my normal/combo skin is glowy and very natural and gorgeous-looking. It smoothes out all the surface of my skin and makes it looked airbrushed and just perfect! This really is the best foundation ever! Couldn't be more happy with it :)

This foundation is absolutely flawless! I've been a long nars lover, and was skeptical on this product before I bought it, and now I don't regret it at all! Goes on amazingly, and you don't need very much at all! xoxo~ Kenna 💕🌈

Absolutely love this foundation! It's so light but still has great coverage! This is by far my favorite foundation. It feels great even with the weather being really hot & humid. I feel like this lasts a long time too.. A little covers quite a bit of face. It blends really well too!

it looks so natural and it feels like I have nothing on It doesn't look cakey like other products look like plus it give me the coverage I want and need
