Hello everyone! Hope you are all well.
You might remember that about a year ago I did a negative review on Nars Sheer Glow because there was so much hype surrounding the foundation, yet it didn't seem to work for me - it even broke me out in cystic spots, or at least I thought it did. You can view that review here.
Despite my negative review many moons ago, I felt compelled to try it again because so many people still seem to love it, and plus - it looked great on my skin, so it was such a shame to have to write it off. I couldn't help but wonder if it was just my skin playing up at the time last year and not actually the foundations fault, so I finally bit the bullet and got a sample pot of it to try out.
I used the sample for three days in a row with no problems, and I was totally loving it. It was such a relief to see that it didn't break me out, and it looked so nice on the skin. In my opinion, it has the perfect coverage - it isn't too heavy and it isn't too light - I guess you could call it medium coverage! I also find that this foundation gets better throughout the day. It is fairly matte at first, but throughout the day I find it looking more luminous - but certainly not shiny!
It's safe to say that there has been a 360 degree change in my thoughts on this foundation. I'm so glad I decided to take another chance on it!
For reference, my shade is Deauville (Light 4). I apply it with my fingers or my beauty blender sponge. I ordered it for £29.50 from John Lewis.
