First of all, this foundation does not contain a pump which is annoying.the formula is rather on the runny side but the foundation goes on smoothly, eventually drying down to a satin (almost matte) finish, which surprised me - I expected it to be a lot more dewy and with less coverage. however, this is not necessarily a bad thing, i really enjoyed how it looked on my skin: imperfections were covered but my skin did not look cakey or unnatural in any way.however, no matter what powder i used, no matter what setting spray, no matter what primer - it just does not seem to last on my skin. my skin looks oily and sweaty after a few hours. it's impossible to wear this on an everyday basis. i really wish there was a way to maintain the flawless finish it gives off right after application.

Great colors, looks lovely at first. But it disappeared from my skin after few hours. Coverage was okay. But I would rather just wear a tinted moisturized and a concealer.

This is a beautiful medium foundation. I use with a brush and it goes on perfectly. I use a light Nars powder and it looks lovely. It doesn’t cover my scars as much as I’d like and it’s not as longwear as i would like without touch up. 8 hours max. Still one of my favourites when my skin is a bit less pimply, I don’t need longwear and medium is fine.Ps this is incorrectly named. It is not sheer or glowy. Also no pump at this price is ridiculous. I had to buy one then the lid doesn’t fit.

This is another go to foundation in my makeup artist kit. It glides on and looks flawless, the finish is quite heavy so I use it for tv presenters mostly. HOWEVER it's not great for aging skin as it will sit in those lines! So close to being perfect! For an everyday foundation on myself I don't really rate it but only because it's too heavy and likes to sit in my pores : ( Buy it if: you have young skin and need heavy coverage Don't buy it: if you're 30 plus lol!

I've tried many foundation before ranging from Revlon to Guerlain and GA, this is by far the most disappointing one. It wears off easily even with the help of Laura Mercier's loose powder and setting spray from UD, especially around the T zone, and the foundation does not go along well with oily/combination skin as the layer of foundation will turn into muddy patches later in the day. The foundation is no where near "sheer glow", it's not sheer and it looks pretty heavy on the face. It's better when I apply it with wet sponge. The foundation leaves my skin in a bad condition with bumps after I have been using it for half a year, which is what I did not expect as this is so much more expensive than Revlon which I have experienced the same condition (and Revlon does not wear off this easily..)So, definitely an under-average product for me.

I really wanted to like this foundation, but it just doesn't work for me.I have oily skin and this made my skin much more oily than usual. It also broke apart and became patchy on my fast after a few hours. It didn't make a difference what I used to apply it (fingers, blender, brush), the result was always the same. It also transfers really easily regardless of whether I use a setting powder.It's really dissapointing as I like how it looks when it's first applied, but it's staying power is not enough for me. It might work better for those with more normal/dry skin types.I will stick with Estee Lauder Double wear which is cheaper, and, in my opinion, far superior.

I'm late to the Sheer Glow party and I wish I hadn't been because this may just be my new favourite foundation. I love how lightweight this feels! It's more pigmented than the name suggests, this is a medium coverage foundation for sure and it's buildable to your liking. It hides everything while also looking very natural, it just sinks in and looks like skin. Gives a beautiful glow. I'm NC20-25 and I use the shade Ceylan, which is the best shade match I have ever found for my skin tone.

I made an account just to warn others how absolutely overrated this product is and how terrible my experience with it has been. I haven’t had a breakout since my puberty days, but guess what happened days after starting this makeup?? I’m experiencing the worst breakout probably of my life...big NASTY pimples all over my chin and jaw line all thanks to this crappy makeup. I can’t believe I bought into the over hype of this makeup. It’s a complete waste of money. Save yourself from a nasty breakout and don’t purchase this makeup.

This used to be my favorite foundation before I tried the Radiant Longwear. I like the texture, coverage and shade selection in this foundation. It feels slightly creamy but not greasy. Finish is natural/dewy and the coverage is about medium. I have dry skin and it applies equally well with a brush or a sponge for me. Love the abundance of yellow tones across the shades; lots of companies seem to think once you’re past “Tan”, your undertone is definitely cinnbar or crimson. It does transfer easily if you don’t set it which can lend to patchiness throughout the day.Overall, this is a solid foundation. The only reason I switched to Radiant Longwear is that RL has slightly more darker shades and I found one that’s a more exact match.

I bought this foundation after reading some great reviews online. I am someone who likes using foundation almost every other day just to even out skin tone and make me keep looking fresh throughout the day.
The medium coverage works perfectly for me. I use my fingers to apply it and I need a very little quantity to cover my face. I like the slight glow that it leaves, perhaps works on my skin type. It does appear to be a bit too dewy for my liking, so needs proper setting powder application.
It lasts me a Long time (around 10 hours easily) so have to give it credit for being Long wearing. However, transfers easy and needs another setting powder application around 6 hours in.
May not purchase it again as I have sampled other products and appreciate their finesse more. Also the no pump applicator is a complete bummer and such a time wastage. I have never heard of any product of brand to be experimenting in such a consumer unfriendly manner.
