Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review Santa Fe

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review

Nars is a brand I have been wanting to try for so long now and if you read my blog you will have seen my latest Nars Haul where I won a £50 voucher. One of the products I picked up was the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I have really been loving high end foundations as I find they work so much better with my skin. My high end collection is slowly growing so I had to add this to it.


Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Santa Fe Review


Firstly I have to say how impressed I am with the packaging. I love how sleek and simple Nars is but it still looks expensive. The bottle is glass so it is a little heavier but I wouldn't like to pay alot of money for a high end foundation to be plastic! The downfall is that it comes without a pump. I would love if brands like this including MAC would include the pump as I find it little wrong when your paying a fortune for the product. Luckily you can buy a pump from Ebay for only £2.00 (free postage) and it fits perfectly, the pump is exactly like the MAC ones.

The shade I went for was Santa Fe. As I ordered this online I used a website called Findation which is amazing. You put in some of the foundations you already own including Brand, Foundation From The Brand and also the shade, you can put in as many as you want. Then the site brings up a whole list of drugstore & highend brands and tells you what shade you will be. Santa Fe is the perfect shade for me when im not tanned.

I apply this using my flat top kabuki brush which gives me a flawless finish. The foundation felt so lightweight even when I built it up in certain areas it still didn't feel heavy. The coverage is medium but can be built up to fuller coverage which I loved. Even though it can be full coverage it still looks extremely natural, I have never know a full coverage foundation still look natural.

Does it last? Well my skin is extremely oily and requires powder touch ups during the day. I applied this foundation at 8.30am and applied powder on top. I decided not to re-apply powder as I wanted to put this foundation to the test. At 8pm it still looked pretty good! If I had of touched up once during the day it would have still looked flawless! If you have oily skin don't be put off by the "Glow" or if you like fuller coverage this foundation is not Sheer! It is lightweight with great coverage. I didn't find it to be glowy like you would think, I found it more of a semi matte finish.

Overall I am really impressed and will definitely be buying this in the future. I ordered mine directly from the NARS Website. This foundation retails for £31.00 which is the average price for a high end foundation. As I said the only thing I wish is that it had a pump and that is this foundations only downfall!

  4. I was always afraid to try this because my skin is oily combo. These days though its getting to be more combo-dry. Maybe I'll finally test this afterall. :-)

  6. I love this foundation! Great choice for dryer skin in particular and as the name suggest really does give a beautiful glow! That site you mentioned that filters shades sounds awesome - picking shades can be a nightmare! xx

  13. Such a great post!! :)

    Like you said, I was afraid that this foundation wouldn't suit my oily skin because of the "glow" on the name, but I'm glad you mentioned that it looked good on your skin!! Phew :p

  21. I've wanted to try this foundation for ages and you've convinced me even more! In fact, the only thing that put me off was not having a counter near me and not knowing my shade to order online, so Findation sounds AMAZING - so useful for those of us who prefer shopping online! Will definitely be trying that out when it comes time to replace my foundation :)

  22. This foundation is on my wishlist since I saw it ages ago on Youtube, but.. it's not a budget friendly product so I might have to find sth similar but in more affordable price range ;) Any recommendations?

    Best wishes,
