NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Review

For years now, i've struggled with foundations. I tend to go for a very natural make-up look, however Sometimes my make-up look is so natural, that it looks like I am wearing nothing on my face atall, -now this might be how you like it but if I am spending time on my appearance at 6:30 am, I'd quite like it to be noticeable! Anyway, i'd tried various foundations, serums and bb creams but never found one with just the right amount of coverage that didn't make my skin too dry, -until now!

I'd been eyeing up this product for a while now, i'd seen youtubers and bloggers using it, and I read up that it was the best foundation for dry skin, so I gave in to temptation and popped into selfridges. 

I purchased the foundation in the colour Light 2, 'Mont Blanc' which is the most perfect colour for me that i've ever found, I am so pleased with it, though if you intend to invest in this, at £31, I would suggest you get colour tested instore first as at this price you really don't want to buy the wrong colour! £31 was a little out of budget but I was willing to pay it for a product that I really loved.

This foundation is medium to full coverage on me, I don't use it on school days however I use it daily on weekends/in holidays and on nights out. I tend to combine it with a fairly light coverage concealer such as the Rimmel Wake me up, and I love the dewy but natural finish that this product provides, -I think this is why I love it for dry skin. It's not too heavy and stays well with a good primer, i'd say its a comfortable foundation to wear.

Its an easy product to apply, I've tried applying with my fingers and the beauty blender, but I think it applies best with a buffing brush (I use the RT's) I wouldn't suggest using this if you were short on time however as it can take a little longer to buff in than a thinner foundation. The only fault is that I don't have a pump, everywhere was sold out! I love the luxorious packaging too, it feels very chic! Well done, NARS! Now just get the pump problem sorted!

Have you tried any high end foundations?
