So, I know I’m a little late to this, but I finally got round to trying out the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer. Better late than never I say! I’m all about a flawless finish; sometimes semi matte and sometimes dewy, and I feel with this foundation you can have the best of both worlds. On days where I want to feel a little more dewy, I tend to not powder, as the foundation is actually a semi matte finish and stays that way with a little loose powder. It wears extremely well, and lasts 8-10 hours on me, even on those days with no powder! As for the concealer, it’s quickly becoming my holy grail. Even on those days where my eyes are dull and dark from lack of sleep, it brightens and easily conceals them. Lets get into a full review of each product.
I instantly understood the huge craze about this foundation from its first application. I love a product that gives a good first impression. This foundation has one of the best and extensive colour ranges I’ve ever seen – whether you’re fair, medium, dark or anywhere in between there will be a perfect match for you.
The coverage of the foundation is light to medium, but it’s very easy to build to a medium flawless base. The silicone-based formula makes it really quick and easy to blend, either with a sponge or brush, which leaves you with a semi matte finish that looks very natural. Also, as I’ve already said, this foundation will stay all day and not budge. I expected it to not last as long as other foundations due to it’s super lightweight feel, but it proved me wrong! This foundation will work best with normal to oily skin, and also those who are prone to breakouts.
I also love the fact that the formula contains no SPF, which is perfect for flash photography! I absolutely love this foundation from Nars, its definitely up their with my favourite from Charlotte Tilbury. RRP £31 – I’m in the shade Santa Fe.
When I bought the foundation, I couldn’t resist but buy the concealer to go with it! This liquid concealer is extremely long lasting, as does an amazing job of covering up any under eye/facial discolorations such as dark circles or blemishes. Its thin creamy texture helps avoid having under eye creases, and also allows for you to build the coverage if you wish. However, it does give a medium to full coverage after one application. Its finish is satin-matte, which I find really flattering and flawless along with the Sheer Glow foundation.
I really love the packaging of the product, with a clear tube to see how much product you have left, and a matte top that is easy to keep clean. The applicator is a wand, making it quick and simple to apply. I use this also to highlight underneath my eyes, as the shade is a little lighter than my skin tone, which allows me to do so. RRP £22.50 – I’m in the shade Custard.
I’m in awe of these products and highly recommend both of them to you. Nars offers an amazing array of shades, so there will most definitely be on for you.
