REVIEW: NARS SHEER GLOW FOUNDATION

I am back with a review! YAY (more shopping for me)

I have been lusting over this foundation for a long time and when i visited the Nars counter in Westfield White City i tried it on and had the loveliest lady at the counter do my makeup. I instantly fell in love with it and finally purchased it!

I have filmed a video where i am applying it to my face and you guys can see the coverage, consistency and the colour if any of you are similar skin tone to i am. My colour is 'Punjab'. I also show you guys two different tools to see the difference, a beauty blender and a Zoeva skin finish brush. Click here to see the video.

Pros 
Around 20 shades (yellow based - which is perfect for me 
Natural flawless finish
Easily blendable 
Great with/without flash - No SPF
Luminous smooth finish - but not too shiny
Great for normal to dry skin 
Weightless on the skin

Cons
No pump! (hard to get product it out)
Not sheer as claimed - medium coverage (this is not really a con though?)
Price - £31 


Full face makeup using the Nars sheer glow in the colour 'Punjab'

On the Nars website they describe it as:

A glowing, natural radiant finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage that immaculately evens skin tone. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, it leaves skin hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves the skin's brightness and texture.
  • For normal, normal-to-dry and dry skin types
  • Hydrates for softer and smoother skin
  • Contains powerful anti-oxidants to protect against damaging free radicals and turmeric extract to improve skin's radiance and tone
  • Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic. Fragrance free.

Consumer Testing Results:
  • 100% skin felt soft and smooth
  • 96% evened out skin tone
  • 96% would recommend Sheer Glow to a friend
  • 92% says skin looks brighter and more radiant 


The picture above is a comparison of before and after i applied the foundation. As you can it is completely natural looking and barely visible on the skin. However i would definitely recommend getting a colour match to get the full benefits of this. Let me know if you guys do try this and what you think of it :)
