NARS Sheer Glow is such a favourite among bloggers. But this non-sheer and kind of glowy foundation puzzles me.
I have had two bottles of Sheer Glow sitting in my collection for a while now. After breaking one of the lids I came to the conclusion that for me to use this I need a pump. Dramatic Tanya you say? Perhaps, but I feared leaks in my makeup bag so I just took the dive and got the lid. On a side note, why doesn’t this foundation come with a lid? For $55.00 I personally think it should.
As for the actually foundation Sheer Glow is not really sheer but more of a medium to full coverage foundation. As for the Glow factor it is definitely something you don’t notice off the bat, but in a couple of hours it transforms you skin into such a healthy looking finish. It’s truthfully incredible!
There is a darker side to Nars Sheer Glow ladies. 9 times out of 10 this looks beautiful, but then there’s that dang 1 time! If my skin isn’t hydrated NARS Sheer Glow can sit on dry patches of skin. Which makes the overall impression look somewhat cakey in places yet luminous in others. The harsh contrast between the two can make one look a little ill.
Should you buy it?
Well if you have oily or combination skin yes, the color range is amazing and so is the finish. Just keep in mind there is no pump! As for my dry skin sisters I can’t stress this enough use a good moisturizer before application or even better try this on before purchasing.
So while I will be finishing these bottles of Sheer Glow I think there are better stress free options that better suit my skin.
