I’m always on the look out for new foundations to try. I love NARS, and Sheer Glow has had great reviews – I know the Pixiwoo girls are big fans – and I wanted to try something which was good coverage yet gave my skin a glow.
I was put off this foundation for so long purely for the name, I’m not a fan of sheer foundations, I like a good amount of coverage (usually medium) but after asking on Twitter I was told it wasn’t all that sheer and a lovely foundation. I was buying online on ASOS with a discount code so I guessed my shade, Fiji, but it seems to be quite right. It’s perhaps a bit on the darker side but great for Summer. The shade range seems to be quite good, with quite a few varying shades and some very light shades too.
NARS Sheer Glow is a medium plus coverage foundation which gives skin a satin-finish and a glowing complexion. It’s meant to hydrate the skin to make it brighter, softer and smoother and I do really like the finish of this foundation. It doesn’t look heavy or caked on my skin at all and gives just the right amount of coverage, while still giving a lovely glow to the skin.
I’ve heard this foundation can make people look sweaty but this is not the case with me, although I do have slightly oily skin in Summer.
I’m really impressed with the staying power of this foundation, it’s one of the only ones I’ve actually noticed it lasts well on my skin.
I’ve been using this a lot recently and I’m so impressed with the results, it’s probably my most used foundation at the moment.
I’d say this foundation is best for normal/dry skin types who like a luminous finish with good coverage and excellent staying power.
