My new holy grail foundation.. Nars Sheer Glow in Ceylan

See my Nars Sheer Glow review here

There was a time when I said I didn't have many Nars products, the collection is definitely growing! I got this beauty in New York, I've been desperate to try Nars Sheer Glow for such a long time but I wanted to see the shades in person so I could make sure I got the right shade. It's a waste of time trying to guess your own shade using the internet. I got the shade Ceylan (light 6) which is a light-medium colour with a yellow undertone. Being the skin tone I am my foundations need a yellow undertone or I look really pink/white!

I've never been one for minimal coverage foundation as I have a lot of scarring on my skin from blemishes, so I'm glad this is a light-medium coverage and really build-able. I usually wear 2 layers, applying each layer with a beauty blender. I still use my concealer with this as I don't want to cake foundation on just to cover my blemishes. I also love the glow it gives to my skin, it doesn't effect the lasting performance either. It has lasted from 8am to 7pm with a dab of powder in the middle before it started to not look its best.

For a while I only swore on wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear, but then moved on to Bourjois Healthy Mix and now this.. I must admit I still love the other two foundations, but this has definitely progressed to my first favourite and go to foundation.

The only downside I find to this is the fact it doesn't come with a pump (like Double Wear). I think for the £31 price tag you expect to not have to pour it out a jar. I also can't seem to find the pump in stock anywhere?! But this is definitely worth the money, it may be a little out of peoples budget, but if you get the chance I would purchase!

Have you tried this foundation, what did you think? If not, what is your go to foundation?

  1. I haven't tried this foundation but it sounds great. I really hate when foundations don't have a pump... I hate having to pour the liquid out! :/


  2. I actually didn't get on with this, I found it clung to my dry patches. Yet that aside I did like the finish!

    1. I have quite oily skin so maybe why I can get away with it! Shame it wasn't for you xx
