Review of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation by uraznbabygurl
I seem to experience what everyone else does not experience, especially with the Sheer Matte vs Sheer Glow comparisons. I have read many reviews and watched a lot of YouTube videos on the comparisons. Pretty much, Sheer Glow seemed to be the unanimous winner of the two. While I think that it is a very nice foundation, I'll be sticking to my Sheer Matte.
What Sheer Glow has over the Sheer Matte is its blendability. This foundation is one that you can just use your fingers and blend away. Sheer Matte, IMO, takes a little bit more work. Also, I do NOT find their finishes similar. If I were to rate the finish on a scale, (1 = extremely matte, 5 = natural, 10 = extremely dewy) Sheer Glow comes at a 6-7 and Sheer Glow would be at a 3-4. Sheer Glow's finish is really beautiful. It gives that hint of radiance and really mimics young, fresh skin. Unfortunately, it gives *me* that uncomfortable, tacky feeling on my skin no matter how I apply it. It also doesn't last very long on my very oily skin. I'd recommend this to anyone who has dry to slightly oily skin.
I've also heard that Maybelline Fit Me and Neutrogena Healthy Liquid foundations are dupes to Sheer Glow. I have tried both, and I will say that they are *not*. Both are thinner and oilier than Sheer Glow. They also do not have as great of a shade range as Sheer Glow (although I match 210 in Maybelline Fit Me products). If you're looking for a better match in Sheer Glow, it's definitely worth the splurge.
Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow's shades ran similarly, in my experience. I wear Fiji in Sheer Matte & the same for Sheer Glow. I'm NC27ish with yellow undertones, for reference.
