Weakest points
- You have to buy a pump separately to the foundation
Summary
I don't usually buy high-end foundations as my skin only usually needs light coverage but I bought Nars Sheer Glow in the colour Santa Fe for a wedding recently as I had heard reviews that it left your skin looking flawless and wow it definitely does! It's a light to medium coverage which leaves skin looking blemish-free and it's long-lasting without looking as if it has sunk into your skin leaving creases after a few hours. Initially I thought I'd use this foundation only for 'dressing up' purposes but recently I've been using it every day and it never looks over the top. I just love it and the feel of it on my skin.

Not great on oiliest of skin
Summary
I love the way this foundation looks on my skin. Gives a nice SATIN finish , wouldn't say much of a glow.
I prefer satin finish to a dewy look so this work amazingly for me.
Although looks great on the skin can get a little oily after a few hours so needs to be accompanied by powder.

I decided to try this mostly because I was fed up with not being able to find a liquid foundation that matched my skin tone. I was a little wary as this was pricy and I don't have a stockist anywhere near me so had to cross my fingers and order online, which was gonna be an expensive mistake if I got it wrong. Luckily I found my match in Siberia =) And when I compare this shade to the palest shades in the highstreet ranges the difference is astonishing. It took me a while, but at least I found my match =)

As for the foundation itself I find it to be fairly sheer though it is buildable (not something I do though, I'm not looking for full coverage) but it doesn't give a shiny or shimmery finish (thankfully). Once blended you can't tell it's there and it just evens out my skin a little, which is exactly what I look for in a foundation.

My main problem with this is the packaging. I love the matt black Nars use and the bottle looks lovely. However I'm too lazy to wipe it down after very use and pretty quickly it gets covered in foundation and looks a mess. But other than that the main problem is I have to pour it out on the back of my hand. Which has resulted in me wasting quite a lot, not exactly ideal with a pricier foundation like this one. I'd be so much happier with a pump on the bottle like a lot of liquid foundations. But honestly, that's not gonna stop me repurchasing this at all as the foundation itself is perfect and exactly what I've always looked for, and now that I've found it I don't have any need to look elsewhere.

Despite the name this is not a sheer glowy foundation. It's a medium natural coverage that has a satin but not shiny finish. As its a high end foundation, the price is expected. Definitely worth it
