Ive been using the Nars Sheer Glow foundation for a few years now and don’t plan on changing anytime soon.
The coverage is amazing and stays on for 12+ hours. I’m prone to oily skin at times but it doesn’t go too shiny unlike other products I’ve tried in the past.
I wear fine powders as well most of the time but honestly the foundation could just be worn by itself if you prefer that.
I have a lighter toned bottle and a darker toned bottle, as when I’m more tanned the light one is just too pale so I add a little bit of the darker one to it and mix it together and it’s perfect.
Therefore the darker tone has been sitting in my cupboard for a while and it hasn’t gone clumpy or dry in the bottle, still good as new.
Definitely recommend :)

I have a psoriasis and its really hard to find a good foundation. My skin is always dry, the color of my face is red on my cheeks and yellow around it, and brown forehead. I have a really good primer, which is oil, but foundation is still an issue. Until I tried Nars Sheer Glow, ceylan shade. Its like a second skin! I haven't tried building it up for full coverage but my skin looked amazing! I've used beauty blender, and tried a foundation brush, my fingers, and its really just good! My husband even told me I was glowing
My holy grail foundation!
This foundation is honestly perfect. The formula is lightweight and the consistency just melts into my face when I apply it. My colour is Ceylan and it matches great, despite whether I have tanning on or not. I make sure I add bronzer on my cheeckbones and forehead to give the foundation a bit of depth and a more natural look, but I cannot fault Sheer Glow at all! Once its on your face, there is medium coverage, which is easily buildable, and it’s dewey, but not oily. It gives your skin a natural glow which doesn’t intensify during the day, it ...keeps all your makeup in place and doesn’t mix with your facial oils as you go about your day either. At $70 it’s a bit pricey, but I have never found a drugstore alternative that works magic like NARS - it’s honestly worth every cent.
Inlove with this foundation
This was my first time purchasing this foundation after testing it at my local Mecca store, and I'm absolutely in love with it! It's the perfect foundation if your after something dewy/glowy and medium coverage, and comes with a yellow base tone. I'll definitely continue using this foundation till I find something even better.
I have purchased about 3 bottles of this foundation so far. It is the perfect every day formula, very natural looking with decent coverage. Does tend to slide around a bit on your face after a few hours but is very easy to touch up with a buffing brush. It applies evenly and easily with all application methods. I often apply with my kabuki brush or rt buffing brush, lose too much product with a beauty blender sponge with this foundation. I wouldn't wear this for a special occasion or if I needed my foundation to have staying power. It's a bit e...xpensive considering there are better foundations for half the price of this, you have to buy the pump separately and that adds more to the final price, it's not necessary but it does save you from pouring too much out of the bottle. 1 pump is enough for a very light coverage but I generally use 2 pumps per application. The shade selection is quite good although I would recommend colour matching it on your skin before purchasing, I wear Punjab in the sheer glow even though I wear either Fiji or Deauville in the all day luminous.
My only issue with this product is that when it's no longer a full bottle and you are towards the end of your bottle, there is actually so much more product left in there that you cannot reach due to the pump being quite short! Other than that the foundation quality itself is the best of the best!
This foundation is perfect!
1) medium-buildable coverage.
2) you don't need a concealer with this foundation.
3) "Sheer Glow" doesn't mean light coverage, it means it gives a nice and glowy highlighter look. This makes my makeup looks natural but at the same time you can tell that I'm wearing foundation.
If you're unsure about this foundation, run over to Mecca & sample it there. They'll also give you a mini tub with a few pumps of foundation so you can test it yourself. This was a huge selling point for me!
Expensive product, but worth the money
I decided to buy this foundation after trying several cheaper products and being unsatisfied by them.
This is quite expensive, but it lasts for a while, if you use it at least once a week.
The texture is light, but gives a good coverage (spots, blemishes disappear) and it does not make my face "cakey" - unlike other foundations do.
I suggest to buy it with the pump, as it makes it easier to apply and it's more hygienic.
Also, I found that it is better to apply it with my fingertips, instead of using a brush.
I would probably buy it again.
