My Holy Grail Foundation

This foundation has been on my 'must-buy list' for absolutely ages. It's been a seriously hyped product for years and I was very late to the beauty bandwagon when I finally caved and purchased it this autumn. But my goodness, I cannot believe I was without this product! Within a week of trying it, it was on my favourite foundations list, and within a fortnight it had taken the top spot. 

Priced at £31 (without the pump), it's not the cheapest of foundations. But I knew that I loved all the NARS products that I had tried, and I certainly hadn't heard a single bad word about this one. The bottle is 1 Fl. Oz (30ml), and is made of glass. The packaging is small and feels fairly luxurious. The one drawback is that you have to purchase the pump separately (£3), otherwise you end up getting foundation all over your hands and wasting an expensive product. Also, you can't fit the lid back on with the pump, and so the product has to stay upright on your beauty shelf or in your makeup bag. 

The consistency of Sheer Glow is very light, yet medium (buildable) coverage. It smells fresh and applies smoothly, whilst giving a healthy brightness to the skin and lifting the overall complexion. For this reason, this foundation is perfect for someone with combination/dry skin, but I wouldn't recommend it for oilier skin types. Wear time is also fantastic - I've worn this for around thirteen-fourteen hours with very few concealer touch ups throughout the day. The foundation is available in a really wide range of shades for all different skin tones. I purchased the shade Santa Fe and, with the NARS creamy concealer in the shade Custard, the colours matched perfect together. 

Overall, this foundation is expensive, but it honestly feels worth it. It lasts a long time - you only need the tiniest amount per application. For the price, I needed it to be the most wonderful foundation I had tried, and it definitely didn't let me down. 

Have you tried the NARS Sheer Glow?
