Nars Sheer Glow Foundation


Ever since I entered the world of beauty blogging, it has been impossible to stop lusting over NARS Sheerglow Foundation after hearing so many amazing reviews. So off I went to Space NK to get colour matched and see what the fuss is all about. 
Oh my I am so glad I did and think I may have found THE one (foundation wise).
My shade is Light 2 Mont Blanc, which according to the shop assistant, is the most popular shade. At first I was weary as I am so used to having a very high coverage foundation however after applying primer (using Benefits Pore Professional) and then one coat of NARS, my skin looked flawless!
As for the texture, its perfect. It is so lightweight and feels like I have no foundation on. I agree with many bloggers out there, it hasn't got that 'glow' like the name suggests and is more matte but it doesn't make my skin look flat or dull so I am not too bothered. 

The packaging is standard NARS, presented in a beautiful classic bottle with a black lid. One massive downfall, which seems to be a regular occurrence for high end makeup brands, is the lack of a pump on the foundation bottle. I don't understand why they don't provide these but I will probably be giving in and buying one just so I'm not wasting and pouring excess foundation.

Overall, for £31 its an absolute winner and feel like this will be my go-to foundation for a very long time!

Thank you beauty bloggers :)
