For today’s post I want to talk about the raved about Nars Sheer Glow foundation. I got this foundation a while ago and have never really mentioned it before. I had high hopes for this one because so many bloggers and YouTubers have it in their holy grail foundation pile, so I had to get shade matched and try it for myself.
Mine is in the shade Montblanc, and I do think I could have done with the shade up from this, but what’s new there! Despite being called Sheer Glow, many people that had reviewed this had said that it was more of a medium to full coverage matte finish. I would have to only halfheartedly agree with this, because I didn’t find it had much coverage at all. I could still see my redness through the foundation, which is what I feel I need to cover the most, so I was disappointed straight off the bat.
I thought perhaps it was my fault for using it with the wrong type of brush, but I tried it with many brushes and even a BeautyBlender and I had no luck, it didn’t give me the desired effect.
For the price tag, I just do not think that this is worth the money, or the hype. Even more so because it ran out surprisingly quick. I’m not writing it off completely, perhaps one day it will work for me but for just now I don’t reach for it.
What do you think about this foundation?
See you in the next one!
