Review | Nars sheer glow foundation


*Picture of foundation after 5 hours of wear*

Nars claim that the sheer glow foundation is "A glowing, satin-finish foundation with a sheer and buildable coverage that immaculately evens out skin tone" and I would just like to say that Nars have hit the nail on the head with that statement, apart from the fact that I do feel like the foundation is definitely a higher coverage than sheer, more of a medium - buildable (which I 100% prefer)
I got this foundation because I was having a look on Unidays and noticed that ASOS had a 20% off  deal, including beauty products with free delivery which knocked down the price down from £30.50 to  £24.40... even though it's only a few pounds, I seemed to justify the price in my head and brought it instantly! I've never been matched to this foundation at a counter, I went onto the "findation" website and it matched me to the shade "Deauville" and this is the PERFECT foundation shade for me, I have never found a foundation that has matched my skin tone better than this! to test out the staying power I went to work for an 8 hour shift, with no primer or fix+ spray on and by the end of my shift, it still looked almost perfect, I was seriously amazed! usually my foundation rubs off on my chin/nose at work due to having a slightly oily T-zone, but nope not from this little beauty! now... one thing I would like to have a moan about is the packaging, why does this foundation not come with a pump? I know you can buy one separately but considering the price you would think that Nars would include one? I'm not a fan of pouring straight from the bottle as I feel like you use way more product than you need to! 
At the moment, I would go as far as saying that this is one of my all time favourite foundations, as I look forward to that subtle healthy glow that this gives me everyday!

have you tried this foundation? what are your thoughts on it?

  1. I've fancied this foundation for a good while now but have a crazy crazy collection on the go as it is! I'm weakening now though, looks gorgeous on the picture :) not happy about the pump situation like! Howay Nars sort it out!

    1. I think it's a lot like the Rimmel wake me up foundation, but I like the nars one slightly better as I find the rimmel one a tad glittery after a while! definitely worth it :)
