Nars Sheer Glow: My New Favourite Base


I finally have my paws on it!! I have left many a comment under fellow bloggers posts on this beauty, most along the lines of 'I NEED this', I really did, so here it is. Nars Sheer Glow - a £31 glass bottle of flawlessness in the shade Mont Blanc. I'm a very big fan and religiously use Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, Chanel Perfection Lumiere (occasionally Mac Studio Fix if I really want to pack it on) but I feel like these are a great trio, as they are great for different reasons. Nars holds number one place for of course making your skin look so healthy and bright, I wore this for the first time on New Year and it sat beautifully on my combination skin all night; with the help of the ol' trustworthy primer the Post Shave Balm.

I'm no longer a fan of feeling like i'm wearing a lot of make-up and this is so light, but still buildable so it lets my skin still feel like it can breathe, but still like 'hey I made a bit of extra effort today y'know and i'm feeling faaaaabulous'. I apply this with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or if I want a little more coverage I go for the Beauty Blender. It makes my skin look radiant without effort so it is a purchase I am very happy with. It's designed for normal to dry skin types, which I do not have but I have heard lots of people with oily/combination skin, like mine still loving this, but I suppose it's something you just have to throw caution to the wind with (not that it's that serious but for £31, caution is required) and try.

What are your fave foundations?

  1. I honestly keep eyeing this up. It's actually everywhere so it's hard not too! Can I justify £31 on a foundation? Probably not at the moment but in the future, I would love to splurge out and purchase this. I'm needing to get hold of the Nivea post shave balm as it sounds like a brilliant primer. Lovely post, so helpful xx

  4. I'm so tempted to try a more expensive foundation to see if it's better but I'm to worried about wasting my money! I usually stick to Rimmel as I know what shade matches me. I must be brave at least once, right? I've been thinking of this or one of the Mac ones.

  5. Nars is really good with foundations, they usually have a nice range of tones, which is great. I don't usually wear foundation so I don't try out new ones that often. Maybe I should haha.

  7. The fact that it's made for people to dry and normal skins is quite intersting ! I should give it a try !
    My favourite foundation at the moment is Sephora Infusion (I don't know if it's the french name of it or not...)

  8. Although I love my Bourjois foundation I picked this one up for my Sister after I heard all of the rave reviews on it too, and it really is amazing! Before that she tried the YSL touche eclat but that was nowhere near as good :)

    1. It's so good! I still really like Charlotte Tilbury, but this is certainly rivalling it for top spot x
