Hi everyone, i have an updated review on Nars sheer glow foundation today. If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know when i first got this foundation i hated it. I really didn't see what all the hype was about. However after having a longer time to get used to the foundation, i'm really starting to like it.
PACKAGING: The packaging like all the Nars products is super simple yet looks sleek and in a way expensive. I love the glass bottle with the famous Nars logo on the side. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't come with a pump -unless you want to spend an extra £3.
COLOUR: My colour is 'Deauville' The forth lightest colour out of the 20 shades available -which i think is a great variety. My shade is quite yellow based/toned. However it does a good job of counter acting the redness in my skin. After ive finished my makeup (applied bronzer and blush ect) the colour looks perfectly fine.
TEXTURE: If you own this foundation you'll probably know that the coverage isn't really 'sheer' like the name would suggest, but to me i like the coverage as you can create a light weight sheer base or a light weight base with a higher coverage which can cover any imperfections and blemishes- which i love! However the full coverage still leaves my skin looking natural and fresh! The texture is a thick creamy liquid which dries to a powder when applied, yet leaves my skin looking dewy without looking greasy.
MY THOUGHTS: Compared to previously my thoughts have changed on this foundation. I'm still not in love with it, but i defiantly like it a lot. The finish -which i think was the reason i didn't like it before is completely different to my usual matte base, its a more of a satin/powder finish. The lasting power of this foundation is alright. It seems to separate on me throughout the day- although i found out that you have to shake the bottle as it is water based. Since doing so it has helped with it staying put and looking better throughout the day. I love this foundation as although it provides a good coverage, it looks very natural as some of my imperfections are partly noticeable (unless you use more foundation/concealer for a higher coverage). Overall i do really like it, and think now ive got used to it, i defiantly like it more. I do think if you want to try it out, get a tester as its quite pricey (£30.50)
