Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

For years I'd been wearing foundations that were always slightly off and Nars has changed my life. I tried Sheer Glow on impulse but now that I have, I can understand the hype it. It has been one of the most flattering foundations for my skintone (I wear Barcelona) and generally makes my skin look great. I have dry patches that Sheer Glow doesn't emphasise but it isn't quite forgiving either as it isn't a dewy foundation. It has a natural finish, which on my dry skin reads as demi matte. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and is my current go-to foundation. Of course, if the packaging was changed to include a pump it would be perfect.


Lipstick -NARS -NARS Lipstick in Rosecliff

on 1/2/2018 8:00:00 PM

This lipstick is an amazing shade and formula. I am NC10-15, very yellow, Nars Siberia in foundation. It is VERY hard for me to find a nude-ish lip that works without being just brown looking. This one does, it's a tiny bit brown, but just the very tiniest bit. Nice pinky color. Wears well, stays put on lips, isn't the softest/creamiest, but I think that makes it last longer. I highly highly recommend this if you're around my skin tone especially. I should probably buy a back up.

I¨ve sampled this foundation for the first time about 3 years ago and then kept on returning to more sampling because there were several things that I did like about it:

the obvious yellow undertone in the shade that matched well with my skin (Fiji)
the balance between it being liquid enough but not too runny
sufficient coverage

Having said that, when I ran out of my old foundation and was ready to try something new, I finally dared to invest in this one. I really really wanted to love it but frankly I haven't moved past 'i like it, it is kind of OK', and here is why:

it comes without a pump! I knew it beforehand, so bought one but, frankly, this is annoying: why make us pay extra for a pump when it is an expensive foundation? All day luminous one has basically an identical bottle and costs the same and comes with a pump. NARS, I don't get it...Next, the title is very misleading: if you expect sheer-this one is matt and is definitely a medium coverage; if you want a glow, you don't really get one... I have to give credit to NARS, though, they do say that this is a product for dry to normal skin, so perhaps if you fall under these categories, you WILL see some glow. On my combination skin, though, all I see in a while is my oily T-zone:)

Overall, though, I can say a few positive things about it- when applied and blended well, it does look nice and it is VERY easy to blend. I have read that NARS foundations are supposed to be applied with fingers; however, I learned that a brush or a sponge works just fine as well. As i¨ve already mentioned though, it does not do a perfect job of controlling oil but on some days it lasts pretty long.

Either way, I can't see a reason to re-purchase it since it does not really match my skin type and it is way more expensive than it deserves performance-wise in my case:) But at least I have formed an opinion and won't keep getting samples for years:D

Sooo wanted to love this product, and thought i would because it is liquidy and dewy and those foundations usually work with my dry skin. Origibally I set it with loose powder which massively dried out my skin within two hours or less, and broke apart all over my face. After trying it without a setting powder it does the same thing and looks awful and cakey and transfers without powder. Would love to know if there was some way to make this work because the colours and application is so good! But would not recommend to anyone with any slightly dry skin as it clings to dry patches and breaks apart.

I like this concealer a lot, if combined with the Sheer glow foundation it works like a dream in covering blemishes, acne scars and break outs. However it does not do well for covering my pores and I don't think it is the best for oily skin as it tends to slide off easily and I need to top up. However, a little goes a long way so can use sparingly, the packaging is nice and neat and light-weight. Can therefore take it with you out for top-up's and holidays. Reasonable price. Medium variety of shade ranges.

My holy grail go to concealer for daily work wear, parties, going out with family, day out with the girls, date night- everything really!

Social media influencers love this and I can see why. I use shade custard which works well for my Asian skin tone. It covers my dark circles perfectly. Blends well, good coverage and you only need to use a little as it goes a long way. Perfect price for the 6ml you get. Despite its popularity it is always available in the UK there are so many stockists in many major department stores in London, which is another plus point. Cannot say a bad word about this concealer and I have tried so many. Love!

My holy grail one of the BEST foundations I have used. I have been using this for past 8 months on a daily basis, the bottle is still not empty. Medium/Full coverage without feeling to heavy. Covers my acne scars and blemishes well. Works even better with the concealer range also. Perfect for daily wear without looking too cakey and heavy. I have oily skin and suffer from acne scars and it blends well on my skin. The shade/colour ranges are wide as well.

The colour is so beautiful when u see it, but not as beautiful as when i'm wearing on my skin:( somewhat it looks more like highlighter than a blush on because it's so glittery and the pink colour sometimes hard to come out & the gold colour is more dominating.. overall, it's good but not for daily makeup , maybe only for special occations because of the colour..

I learned this foundation from watching Nikki Joy from Australia over Youtube. She raved this as one of the best foundations for oily skin. True enough, honestly I have to agree with her. Just don’t be deceived with the words “sheer glow” if you want medium coverage and you have oily skin. Coverage is sheer to medium depending on how you build it up. Plus this is also good for oily skin cause it gives that enough hydration but not making your face into an oily gunk. I also did not get pimples from using it. My co-workers even complimented how healthy my skin looks and I look glowy. So I can say this is an HG foundation and will definitely repurchase once I ran out.

It is the best! My HG. I am on my 3rd tube and it never disappoints! Mind you, I have got really dark undereyes (my problem since birth). I got deep set eyes too. I have tried a LOT of concealers but this tops off everything. Does not crease. I just had to set it with translucent powder and I'm good to go for the entire day.

I much prefer foundations with a lighter texture. Looked cakey and gross around my nose. I have normal to dry skin with mild texture in the t zone. This went straight into the trash after three applications. Looks great on some people, but not for me.

I've got this in the Unfiltered cheek palette. I love that it's so different to the usual pink/rosy blushes I usually use. It's very pigmented so you need a light hand and a fluffy not too dense brush. Im medium toned (NC30) and it comes up a red-orange on me. I enjoy the quality of nars blushes. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is its expensive and I have quite a few other blushes I enjoy too, but I would recommend it if you're looking for a slightly different blush colour.


Tinted Moisturizer -NARS -Velvet matte skin tint

I don't agree that this is medium coverage. It feels and looks more like full coverage to me unless you have massive acne scars to cover up and I don't. My issue is fine lines but other than that my skin is good. They come with age and nothing much any of us can do but try to use good skin care and products that minimize them. I absolutely hated this and it's nothing like a tinted moisturizer so I'm not sure why the reviews for this are under tinted moisturizer. It's called Skin Tint and nowhere is moisturizer in the name and it's not recommended for dry skin. My skin is normal, never dry, slightly oily in the T zone at times. This was just a disgusting product for me. It felt thick and heavy and It looked painted on, like a thick clay like consistency and it accentuated every single fine line, hated it! Really hated it! It smells horrible too, like oil paint, but the smell fades really fast. It has SPF 30 and it does oxidize a little, so I would say go down one shade. It is super matte, which I don't like anyway. It did look better when I used a setting spray to make it a little dewier, but it accentuated every single line, even ones I never knew I had. In sunlight it looked awful. I didn't accentuate pore if I used a primer, but I don't have very large pores so that wasn't much of an issue but it did seem to accentuate them with no primer. I love to try new things but this was a definite NO for me. Back to my old faithfuls... Laura Mericer tinted moisturizer. Pixi tinted moisturizer, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, Lift or the regular Moisture Rich and Boots No7 Lift and Luminate......( LOVE LOVE LOVE and it's drugstore!!!)
