NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Review 10.27.09


I wanted to love it, I really did.
I love NARS.
I love Sheer Foundation.
I love anything to do with being Glowy.

Alas, NARS Sheer glow did not live up to my expectations.

I got a sample of it in Sante Fe, I used it for a couple days. Yes, it felt light, it was a sheer but build-able formula but in all honestly my skin looks very dull and lifeless. Opposite of the promises. I thought it could have something to do with the color, maybe it was too light.

I went to Bloomingdale's to check out the darker color in Punjab I believe? I am not too sure. Anyway, yes, my first match was way too light. The wonderful and lovely MA applied the darker color, which was a perfect match for me with a few moisturizers and the serum. (Which I purchased and previously reviewed! love!) I tried out the right color for a few days and it still was dull and lifeless to me. It was the opposite of glowing, it was MATTE. I even used moisturizer and strobe cream. Unfortunately for me, matte is just something I am not interested in.

For me, this product gets a thumbs down!! However, be aware that I have very very dry skin, this might and probably would work like a DREAM for someone with an oily- normal skin type. I definitely do not recommend this for the drier skin types.

Bummer, however I have found something I LOVE! Actually, 2 things. More on that later!

Anyone else care to share on this?

  1. I haven't tried this yet, but I've been meaning too. I had watched Lollipop26 review this foundation on YT, and she pretty well raved about it. I thought it must be pretty good then. But now I'm torn. I have normal to dry skin. The only thing is, I'd have to order this online as I don't believe NARS is sold in my area. And it's never much fun picking out your shade online.

    So therefore, I don't know if this is really worth it. But to each their own. And you never really know unless you try it out for yourself.

    I may still try it later down the road, once I use up some other stuff.

  3. That is the reason I didn't buy it! I saw pictures of it on people and it didn't look dewy or luminous at all! I can only imagine what the matte version looks like lol

  8. Are you unable to cope with the wrinkles in your face? If your facial deformity is making you unattractive in front of your hubby and he is drifting away from you, then it is time for you to find out an appropriate solution. A host of skincare treatments are available to erase the wrinkles from your face completely but if you opt for the Revitol cream, the look of your face would be entirely changed and the lines on your face would be a matter of a bygone era. Revitol cream is a product of the Revitol company and all Revitol natural skincare products are available for you at www.herbsncures.com/.
