Nars Sheer Glow Review

Hello My Lovelies!

Today's post is all about one of the most talked about foundations in the world... Nars Sheer Glow!!

I have been coveting Sheer Glow for over six months if not longer and I had every intention of buying it once I had finished my Laura Mercier a Silk Creme foundation, how ever I don't tend to use up bottles and bottles of foundation and it became apparent that I might never buy it. So I decided that I would buy it the next time I visited london, except I didn't get a chance to make it to london before ASOS did a 30% discount code and I knew I had to take the chance and buy it without being colour matched. I have really fair skin so I was worried about buying the colour Mont Blanc which is light 02 but the only light colour ASOS stocks and I had this terrible feeling it might be too dark for my skin. I then went to the Space NK website to order myself one of the pumps, luckily Space NK was also doing a great deal of free delivery!

I have been using Sheer Glow for almost a month and it is by far the best foundation I have ever used, I can't believe I've waited this long to buy it...if only I had known!!

The consistency of the foundation is light, doesn't cake your skin so is buildable and once applied with my Real Techniques brushes it looks so flawless. I'm so glad I went for Mont Blanc as it's a great shade for me, it's probably the best colour foundation I've used and that's when I've been colour matched at the counters for previous foundations. I only tend to use my high end foundations on the weekends/holidays/nights out as I hate wasting it but I've just run out of my drug store brand and I think I'm going to start wearing Sheer Glow everyday even to work!! I don't even care if I run out quickly and have to pay full price, it's that amazing!! This year I have tried Chanel Aqua Lumiere and Laura Mercier but nothing compares to the Nars Sheer Glow. I'm now really tempted to treat myself to the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer in the new year. I will be interested to see how it looks come the summer and if the colour looks as good, but currently I couldn't fault this foundation!

Have you tried any of the nars products and in particular the Sheer Glow?! Let me know in the comments.

Till next time,

  1. My favourite foundation at the moment is MAC face and body, but I picked up chanel aqualumiere and I have used it a couple of times so I am very tempted to try this too! Thank you for sharing, you might want to take a look at my review on the Nars concealer, I really like it, I have so many high end concealers and it is by far above the rest!

  2. Hi Cornelia,
    I've not tried Mac foundations before, the Chanel Aqua Lumiere is actually really nice I loved wearing that to work. Thanks for letting me know about your review I'll definitely check that out.

  4. I am always hearing such amazing things about this foundation! I always find it so difficult to find a foundation that I really like and don't want to spend lots of money on something that might not work, however I might just get this one after my current one runs out!
