Beauty Review: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation!

Heeeey guys! ❤

So, I FINALLY have enough disposable income to justify trying some of the high end brands I have been drooling over for a very long time so I thought I would start of the with ever so talked about and hyped foundation from Nars!
Yes, that’s right folks, I bought the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation so I thought I would let you guys know what I think of it, how it looks and how it wears throughout the day!

~ Colour Match ~

I have been drooling over and been watching SO MANY make-up ‘gurus’ using this foundation all over social media for years so when I finally got to have some of my own I was SO EXCITED!
As this brand is high end it does have a lot of colours to match a lot of skin tones which for me was like the make-up gods had looked down on me and sprinkled magic dust and I actually have a foundation that matches my skin tone! ❤ *dances, sparklers and fireworks everywhere*

Honestly, having a foundation that matches me is a god send so the colour range of this foundation is just a dream come true. They have everything from caspar white (dats me) to the darker skintones so I truly think you would be able to find one that matches you well!

~ Finish ~

Okay… this is where things got a tad confusing for me! Hah!
As this foundation is called ‘sheer glow’ I presumed, as everyone in their right mind would, that it would be a light to medium coverage with a glowy finish, right? Just me who thought this?
In reality, this foundation is extremely high coverage and the finish, on my skin, is matte. I get no glow and it is deffo not sheer…
I like high coverage foundations, and matte foundations don’t bother me, so I was pretty lucky with this. However, why would you name and advertise a foundation as ‘sheer glow’ if it isn’t sheer at all and is deffo NOT glowy?! Thankfully, I like the finish and it sits well on my skin! I can get an oily T-Zone so having a matte foundation helps reduce this which is a benefit, however, if you’re after a sheer glowy foundation maybe don’t go for this one… I mean maybe I missed something and it’s just a confusing name for the product..? Who knows.

~ How it wears ~ 

Overall this wears just as well as other foundations I have. It doesn’t wear any better or any worse than others I have tried which is a positive!
It does crease after a while, so if you’re wearing this for extended periods of time you may need to touch up throughout the day/night!
It didn’t look cakey throughout the day/nights that I wore it and didn’t require too much maintenance which is benefit as no one enjoys battling with their foundation all the time!


~ Packaging ~ 

The packaging is really lovely, it has a matte black lid and comes in a glass bottle. The only thing that really frustrates me about it is that you have to buy a separate pump for the bottle.. why? You are paying £32 for the foundation so why cant they add a pump into the packaging?!
Overall, it’s okay, but not having a pump on foundations that you are paying a decent amount for, to me, is silly…

~ Price ~

This is a high end product and so more expensive ingredients are used so it is more expensive than the typical high street foundations you can grab. I would say for the actual product it is worth the money, it wears well and looks nice on the skin, however, the packaging could be improved by adding a pump to it, I mean come on! Haha!

~ Thoughts Overall ~

Overall, I do like this foundation. It sits well on the skin, blends well, has a beautiful colour match and doesn’t crease or melt away during the day which is a benefit. I am still confused by the ‘sheer glow’ naming as I do find it high coverage and pretty matte on my skin and the no pump on the bottle thing is a bit of a let down, but hey, it works and I would be tempted to buy it again in the future 🙂

Have any of you tried this foundation before? What were your thoughts on it? I would love to know in the comments! ❤

Talk soon,

    What a lovely review! NARS sure does have a great range of colours in their foundations. I use their ALL DAY WEIGHTLESS LUMINOUS finish foundation which is supposed to be great for combination to oily skin. It sits well on the skin but does tend to come off after a while. Ive been happier with 5 times cheaper drugstore foundations!

    Also, I feel my foundation sort of changed its consistency over time. Would love to know how yours pans out!

      I feel the same with cheaper foundations, they don’t crease as much or melt away as quick! I still like this one, I just feel it’s quite over hyped! I will let you know how it lasts over time 😘💕 xxx
