NARS Sheer glow

NARS Sheer glow foundation is many things - but sheer it is not! If you're looking for a really lightweight and light coverage foundation, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a medium coverage that looks a bit satin and a bit natural, this might be for you... I've been mentioning this foundation so much lately that I thought it was time to review it!

The shade range is pretty darn extensive, which is great. They cater for the palest of pale skins down to the deepest. The undertones all seems fairly warm to me, worth noting. I'm the shade Mont Blanc, which seems a good match for my pale skin. I wear about an NW15 in MAC, for reference. 

The bottle is glass and feels nice and fancy, although it doesn't come with a pump. I hate that! Foundations without a pump are so messy and blurgh. I bought the pump to go with it, which was only  £3 but also seems to be sold out everywhere! Annoying. The foundation, on its own, is expensive enough so it should come with a pump! It's £29, which makes it pretty high end ;) 

In terms of longevity I use a primer underneath and powder my t-zone. I use 2 pumps for my face. It lasts really well on my skin - if I apply it around 9 it'll still be on my skin at least 8 hours later. I do have to powder my nose a bit throughout the day, but I'm fine with that.

Have you tried this?



  1. Love the sound of this foundation, I've had my eye on it for a while! Shame it doesn't come with a pump, I think I would have to buy one too. Great review, this is definitely going on my lengthy wishlist! :)

  2. Heard soo many good reviews about this foundation!!
    Must pick it up soon :)


  3. I want to try this so badly and I'm a Nars virgin (shamefully). I looks lovely on you! (and we have the same bedsheets- Ikea right?!) xx

  4. This sounds lovely and I've read so many great reviews but I don't think it would work for my oily skin :)

  5. I adore Nars. By far my fave brand, it is expensive but it works! Plus like you said, their shade range is amazing xox

  6. I really want to try this!! But i can't part with MAC :( xx
