To be honest it’s rare that any beauty product comes along that I can hand on heart say, for want of a better saying “rocks my socks.”
With every new cosmetic product release, I have found myself becoming increasingly cynical. Due entirely too many past experiences of product let downs. And in my 28 beauty obsessed years, I have little more than a handful of products that make the holy grail list, this little bottle of magic (dramatic Moi?) being at the very top!!
NARS Sheer Glow foundation!
I did a post on this after first purchasing it a couple of years ago. If I remember rightly I declared it holy grail upon first use. I don’t want to waffle on all essay style on yo asses, so I thought it best to break down the reasons why sheer glow has remained top of my cosmetic dream team…

A perfect medium coverage.Which can be built up to achieve a medium/full coverage. Application wise this works into skin best using fingertips or a damp beauty blender sponge. Which will give you the sheerest result.
Another thing to point out is that if you have slightly dry skin then this works best applied straight after moisturiser for extra “slip.” To blend into the skin perfectly.
In a word…flawless! Although the name Sheer Glow still baffles me a little bit. It is hardly sheer nor does it give the dewy finish you might expect. It is much more of a satin finish. However, if you are after immaculate, doll-like skin from your foundation then this is the one for you
I would recommend this for most skin types. However those with very dry skin and mature skin should definitely steer clear as this cling’ s on, and cakes on any dry areas. It could potentially look very heavy and unnatural on a mature skin. I tend to avoid using it if I am having a dry skin week.
Sheer Glow is in it for the long haul. Even though as I have a normal/dry skin type, I don’t tend to use a primer or powder with it. This gives me a full 8 hours of wear before any touching up is needed.
20 shades! From pale to dark skin and varying undertones. I originally purchased Deauville which is light with a neutral balance of Pink and Yellow undertones. Which, towards the end of the bottle I found too pale for me and have since purchased Fiji. Which is a light shade with a yellow undertone and perfect for my (NC25) skintone.
A bit of a “type your pin number in whilst looking away” £30.50 for 30ml. However a little goes a long way. I wear it most days, and always for a night out (as it photographs well.) A bottle of lasts me around 4 months.
And that’s it.No bad news here folks.
I could be picky and point out that Mr Nars could have chucked in a plastic pump to make up for the price tag. but I won’t go there.
Have you tried NARS Sheer Glow?
