Hi friends! If you read my "I don't need this, but really want it" list last week, then your probably know that I've been dying to try the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation! Literally every single person I've seen on YT or in photos, look amazing with it on. Plus, I heard it was great for dry skin. So, when I received a $15 off coupon from Sephora last week, I couldn't resist getting it!
I ended up going with the shade "Gobi" or "Light3". Quick note - the Sephora consultant matched me with their new foundation matching "gadget" and insisted I was "Light5" or "Light6"..... um, maybe if I wanted to look like a pumpkin?! Be aware of the results if you are matched with it!
Anyways, Gobi ended up being an absolute PERFECT shade for me! On the Sephora website, it appeared to be very yellow but surprisingly it goes on more neutral than anything.
|As you can see, it does posses a warm undertone but not overly golden.|
I apply it with a damp beauty blender because I've discovered my liquid foundations look so much more natural this way. Although this foundation has rants and raves, I want to go ahead and say, if you're looking for really full coverage, I don't think you're going to get that with this foundation. However, it does such a great job of evening out the complexion, which is what I would prefer as opposed to masking my face.
As far as the overall feel, I would definitely say it's the lightest feeling liquid foundation I own - so comfortable on my skin! I've worn it with and without powder and I do think you'll get a little more wear if you top it off with a small amount of powder. The finish isn't as dewy as I expected it to be, given the name "Sheer Glow", I was definitely expecting a super dewy finish but it has the slightest amount of shine after application.
A couple of my favorite things about this foundation are definitely the light-weight feel and staying power. I still haven't figured out if I like wearing it better with or without a powder. Even if I don't set it, it ends up transforming into a slight powder finish.
I can definitely see myself wearing it in the summer for a nice light weight feel. The blendability is also super easy. It doesn't dry quickly which allows you to distribute the foundation evenly. This is obviously going to be great for those of you with normal to dry skin looking for something light weight. Overall, I'm really enjoying it!
What do you guys think? Would this be a foundation you'd go for? Let me know below!
Until next time...
