This foundation is what I would call "good." For the price I was expecting a whole lot better! Over all the fondation isn't really true to its name. It claims to be "sheer glow." For one, I wouldn't describe it as sheer, more medium. Secondly, in my opinion its more of a Demi matte finish and not so glowy. If you are going to splurge to test it out for yourself, make sure you get color matched, because there is a lot of colors!

I love this foundation, and how it does give a dewy finish more a sheer finish though. The colour really matched me as well I got the shade deauville, it's easy too blend and best too use with a beauty blender/sponge. However when you do blend it, it is quite sheer so I tend too put a second layer over the top, it does last the full day, about 6 hours maybe. The size I thought was a let down how it is very small and was quite pricey but the bottle still looks full too the top so I do recon it will take a while for me too Finnish. I do love this foundation and is one off the best I've used as it blends so well and doesn't look cakey at all.

I absolutely loathe writing negative reviews but after all the hype I really had to post something as some sort of warning to other like-minded buyers. I usually use a light, dewy sheer foundation. Past favourites have been: Burberry Luminous Fluid Base, Chanel Aqua Vita Lumiere, MAC Face and Body, Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation and Guerlain Lingerie de Peau (favourite). I bought this under the impression that this would be in the same vein as these products (perhaps I was fooled by the name of the product?) but was very much mistaken.I so badly wanted to love this foundation but it is so matte, cakey and terrible that I even exchanged it for another thinking it must have been a faulty one. I tried every imaginable way of applying it; fingers, MAC duo-fibre stippling brush, Real Techniques foundation brush, a Beauty Blender sponge, but nothing would take away from how much this thick product stuck to any dry patches (/created ones I didn't even know I had) and made it look like I was wearing a huge face of make-up. The shade (Deauville) was fairly bang on but the consistency was just awful and I couldn't understand how matte it was. As it was so expensive I tried to give it to a friend who has the same shade skin as me. After applying it made her dewy skin look matte and cakey and it has been resigned as a decoration to my dressing table after a few uses.The inner cap also cracked and has made using the product a hot mess. Oh to be able to return used products! I'm definitely sticking to my Guerlain foundation. This is the only cult product that I am completely confused at regarding the hype. Approach with caution and definitely test with your whole face, not just a shade swatch, before you think about buying! Sometimes buying into hype is tricksy...xx

This is the best foundation in my collection. I loathe the feel of heavy foundations and avoid full coverage unless I really need it. This foundation is light-medium coverage and has an extensive range of shades. Although many of the shades look quite yellow in the bottle they blend out well and look really natural. I tend to switch between Mont Blanc and Deauxville for my NW 15-20 skin. I find this blends like a dream with a buffing brush or stipling brush. The finish is so smooth and natural and does not feel like I am wearing anything on my skin. The packaging is fine if you buy the pump or use a MAC pump. It really should just come with the pump though. Overall I adore this foundation for everyday wear and am likely to use this more than any of my other foundations. I recently began using a drop of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops to adjust the shade of Mont Blanc and WOW! These two products go so well together. If I add 2-3 drops with Sheer Glow then I increase the coverage without changing the texture or finish of the foundation. Brilliant!

Tried this out because I was curious to play around with foundation. I had heard a few good things about this product so I gave it a try and loved it. It really does give a sheer glow. It doesn't leave a dewy or a matte finish, which I like and it also stays on very smoothly. The only con about it is it takes a bit longer to blend than other products i have tried. Definitely recommend.

Normally I don't spend this much on a singe foundation but I really do love the product. The coverage is amazing, the color selection is amazing and the way it blends and looks on the skin is great. However I am not a big fan of the packaging. I believe that all foundations should come with a pump when the bottles are like this one. I find it not to be very user friendly without it. Aside from that I do love this foundation and would repurchase it.

Well...I haven't purchased this product yet, but reading through the comments I think I would like to try the product only to get my view on it but if anyone watches lets say Zoella on YouTube she has spotty and oily skin yet she is a very down to earth person and only recommends the best products! I think though it's a shame the company doesn't send out tiny samples for FREE to customers to see if it's there skin tone because a lot of people say how the shade was too dark or looked orange on the skin tone. So..that is something I would recommend, but overall reading through the comments has helped as a lot if people seem to have the same problem as myself with having oily and spotty skin and seeing that most people with that problem find the foundation to go all cakey around there T-zone it is quite bad for a product and that being that pricey!

I bought this last October and it lasted me until now in May with wearing it on most days. My skin tone is around an NC30 with yellow undertones. I went with the shade Punjab as Stromboli and Barcelona looked either too dark or too orangey on me. Plus im half punjabi so i was like YEAH already. If Punjab was slightly darker it would be perfect for my skin, nevertheless the tone matched me perfectly so the slight light cast wasn't a big issue. It has a medium coverage which i like, i have acne scarring and it would never cover those in a million years so i use Vichy Dermablend on those. My skin is dry and in winter this looked slightly flakey and patchy. The finish overall is okay, nothing spectacular, its a good solid foundation. I must say though i discovered something the other day that might have gained it an extra lippie. I was looking for a lighter coverage than normal so i mixed some with an Olay multi radiance moisturiser and HOLY yesssss, it looked so much more flawless with practically the same coverage but smoother and luminous. Now it has finished and it's time to say goodbye unless i miss it.

For months this was my holy grail foundation, I am now on my second bottle and have developed a love-hate relationship. I apply with a buffing brush and set with powder, some days I use primer, some days I don't. This foundation would suit someone who has neither dry nor oily skin as it clings to dry patches and cakes around my oilier T zone, halfway through the day. However, the colour selection is amazing (I suit Mont Blanc perfectly) and for a "sheer" foundation, the coverage is impressive. I suffer from breakouts and it does a pretty damn good job at hiding redness. The overall finish looks lovely, more on the dewy side, however I find it stays slightly tacky to the touch even an hour after applying. Unfortunately you have to buy a pump for the bottle, I use around 2 pumps to cover my face and blend down my neck. I wear it 5 days a week and 1 bottle lasts me nearly 3 months.
