First of all, I am a no-foundation kind of girl. I hate feeling like there is much of anything on my skin, other than a moisturizer. I can take a heavy foundation for a couple hours for an event, but to wear it every day? NO! I believe that most people can wear a light or medium foundation and look very good; personally I don’t think it’s necessary to have that airbrushed look every day. I understand for those acne or dark-spot prone ladies that you feel more confident when your skin is completely evened, but otherwise I really don’t see the point in wearing something heavy. That is the reason why I decided to try this foundation, considering “sheer” is in the name. I’ve had a great experience with this foundation, so I felt that I should share the love and write a NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Review.
Coverage & Finish:
Although NARS uses the word “sheer” to describe their foundation, I find that it can actually build up to a nice amount of coverage. One layer would be light, but if you did a second brush-over, you’d definitely achieve medium coverage. Even with a second layer, this foundation is weightless, I NEVER feel like I’m wearing something. I try it on loads of people and they’re always pleased with the texture and how it turns out for an everyday look. It’s extremely natural looking and has a good range of shades which are more on the yellow side, but I believe it’s still manageable to find a shade for a wide range of women. It has a natural finish, with a progressive glow as the day goes on. I believe someone with a combination or oily skin type would find it quite glowy, and a dryer skin type would find it natural.

Lasting Power & Cost:
One thing I’m not too crazy about is the lasting power. I find that it will begin to fade after about 4-5 hours, and if I can’t reapply, the pink tone of my skin will start shining through, much to my dislike. It isn’t a big issue for me because I use a primer anyways, and in which case it will last for many hours, and just gets glowier – which I like. But for the girl who won’t use a primer, it may end up being a major downfall. Another thing which is a little unfortunate is the price, one bottle is $55 CAN. I don’t mind spending the money as long as I have it, and this foundation does last me quite a long time, even with daily use, but I would agree that it’s a little pricey.
One last thing I wish they would have included is a pump! I don’t like having to pour the foundation out, potentially losing some or making a mess. Aside from that, I still absolutely LOVE this foundation. I’ve repurchased already and will continue to. I love the texture, coverage as well as the overall look and feel! It’s my personal favourite foundation. Thank you so much for reading my NARS Sheer Glow Review, please let me know if you have any questions!
