Another foundation review?
I am still on my quest to find the best foundation for my skin, it’s proving to be a tough battle. Next on the list to try, the Nars Sheer Glow foundation.
Before purchasing the foundation I got properly colour matched in Selfridges, and was given the colour Mont Blanc (that doesn’t surprise me, I am so pale!). When she popped it on the one side of my face I loved how it looked straight away, it went on so well and I was really happy with it. So I went for it and bought it, annoying that you have to buy a pump alongside it at an extra cost but I had to get one otherwise it was guaranteed that I would make a total mess of the product once I got it home.
When i first used this to create a full makeup look I had mixed thoughts on what I thought about it. Firstly I think it might actually be a teeny weeny bit too late for me, but I know for a fact that the next shade down was too dark when i tried it in the shop, pale skin problems! However, once I had completely finished my makeup, with a bit of bronzer,highlighter etc it looked okay and I do think this was the right shade to go for!
When I’m not having a really bad skin day this foundation is really lovely and is long lasting. It doesn’t dry my skin out and keeps me looking fresh. BUT, if my skin isn’t its best and I have dry patches then I don’t think the sheer glow is for me. It clings to the dry patches and lasts for all of about five minutes. But to be honest, that is the case with most if not all my foundations when my eczema has flared up.
The only other thing is that once you put the pump in you can’t then get the lid back on, so it could make it difficult to pack if you are travelling, but I will come to that hurdle later!
So overall I really do like this product…when I am having a good skin day! I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for an everyday, long lasting foundation.
It does still look like I am on the quest for the perfect foundation for dry skin, so please do let me know if you have any ideas!
