medium coverage a nice finish works great on oily skin

I absolutely love this foundation! I have the shade Siberia, it's perfect for those who are fair like me. I have combination skin, with an oily t-zone with the occasional dry patch and this foundation wears very well on me. Despite the name it isn't sheer, it's a medium to full coverage! This is my second bottle and I will definitely repurchase! :)
I have oily skin and it is very difficult to find a foundation that stays on my face at least a couple of hours. EL Double wear does that, but it is very heavy for summertime and the color variation is very poor in my country. So a was looking for something lighter and people always rave about this Nars Sheer glow - that its is light, yet covers well, that it is natural and dewy but at the same time also matte. And it does all that! It stays on even better than the double wear and the color Deauville is a perfect match for my skintone. I haven´t triend the sheer matte version but sheer glow is very suitable for oliy and combination skin.
This is in no way sheer nor extra glowy. It stays put on your face, your skin looks lit from within, but the finish feels almost matte. The formula is also very lightweight, I never feel like I'm having any make up, and don't look it too, yet my skin looks perfected. The coverage is also pretty nice, I wouldn't say sheer at all, more of a medium. The lasting power on me is amazing, it doesn't move all day. I set it with NARS light reflecting setting powder for a bit of an extra glow, and it looks amazing, airbrushed almost.
I got this in the shade Mont Blanc and for me it's the perfect match for my colouring , with a name like sheer glow it makes you think of a light coverage but i definately think it's a medium coverage foundation . I have been using this for a few weeks now before reviewing because u couldn't make up my mind on it . I like that it is a great shade match and gives good coverage it also lasts very well and you don't have to use much , the only thing is i don't find any glow on me and I would have preferred a sheerer finish maybe . Overall I think it is a good foundation and I would buy again
My holy grail foundation! Great coverage whilst still looking very natural, applies and blends very easily (I use either my fingers or real techniques buffing brush) and my shade (deauville) is the best colour match I've found in any foundation, the slight yellow tint perfectly cancels out my redness and it doesn't cling to any dry patches. I also find it to last really well throughout the day. Love this foundation, will definitely repurchase!
It is perfect for dry skin, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. .Transport is very fast (i am in CHINA). TKS.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation is the best foundation I've ever used. I chose the best match for my skin tone, and it looks so flawless and natural. The coverage is great but it still looks like skin. The finish is also beautiful. When I first used it and even my boyfriend told me how amazing my skin looked that day, I knew this was a winner
Love this foundation, great coverage and buildable.
Love this foundation! Stays on all day and it looks like my own skin. Not too dewy or too matte just perfect for my normal to dry skin!
Really impressive foundation, the coverage is medium & buildable but does a great job of hiding redness & blemishes. It can cling to dry patches though so skin definitely needs to be exfoliated/moisturised & primed, but the result is worth it. I've got quite oily combination skin so I do use a little bit of powder afterwards but I wouldn't say that it was absolutely necessary, and the finish is satiny & definitely not too "glowy"... so don't let the name put you off!
best foundation i ever had!!!! i had many of good foundations and expensive ones but this one is nr 1 for me...give a fresh look and nice coverage and is not too heavy!!!!!!is worth the money!!!!
This foundation is great!!! I have an oily T-zone - combination skin. Despite my skin type, the 'glow' is not overpowering at all. The skin looks natural as the foundation has medium coverage and feels incredible light. Repurchase? YES!
Great foundation, it's very buildable and provides a natural effect. Love the shade selection!
A little of this product goes a very long way. Easily blended using a damp cosmetic sponge, coverage is easy to build for those who prefer more coverage. Weightless on the skin, it feels like you're not wearing make up. Gives the skin a subtle glow and blurs imperfections, and stays out all day. I would go as far as to say this is the best foundation I've used.
Nothing special to say about it except the fact it is my favorite foundation of all time and I keep purchasing it again and again and again. I hope it will never be discontinued.
I tried Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab as it was the perfect match for skintone & I was also looking for a dewy finish. This foundation is a light fluid. You only need a tiny amount as it spreads nicely but if you have many blemishes you can build it up without looking cakey, by using a stippling brush or your hands to warm up massage it in for that natural skin effect. The dewy effect is lovely, I've received many compliments on my skin. It doesn't look greasy at all. Foundation lasts from morning to night. Unlike some foundations which caused me cyst spots this foundation didn't react badly! Its a bonus there is no SPF as that can cause flashback and spots. I am delighted with this product & highly recommend it!!
I have very dry and pigmented skin, so I need good coverage and a glowing finish without drying out my skin. I tried Macs Studio sculpt, which gives good coverage but cakes up and creases after a while. I tried the mineralize moisture foundation which does not cake but has not enough coverage. I tried the make up forever, which I really like but the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation has two things better: it has a luxurious glow and it covers perfectly by just using a little amount of product. And it doesn't brake me out!
Basically this Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is just as described - it has a very fine texture yet even if you only go for one thin layer it gives a very lovely coverage. Contrary to previous reviews I find the glow ''ability'' of this foundation marvelous! It is not the cheap-looking, glittery disco glow, that makes you look horribly painted during daytime - it is a very low-key glow, that gives the skin a dewy finish. I have kind of olive-ish undertones and Sibiria is a tad too pale but since it is so blend-able that is no problem at all. The undertones of this foundation are just right for me. Very happy with this purchase!
I absolutely love this Nars Sheer Glow Foundation! It's easy to apply, gives you time to blend it in properly and doesn't dry quickly. Its coverage is perfect for my needs too - not too much and not too little. The most important thing for me is that it gives you coverage, but it looks natural, which is a real plus as I hate foundations which give you this mask-like look. I highly recommend this one! I only took one star away for the packaging - it looks nice, but there's no pump, which may cause some product waste. I bought my pump separately, but now I can't use the cap anymore, so I wouldn't really like to travel with this product. Apart from that, it's a perfect product.
This Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is the best foundation I have ever tried! Gives build-able coverage and the perfect glow on the skin! I highly recommend this foundation!
The Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is a very good foundation with excellent coverage. It is indeed very "glowy", but does not look too oily. It not very sheer as it's a medium to full coverage foundation, but this shade has a neutral to pink undertone that makes the skin look a lot healthier. The only downside is that it's a little powdery - I know it does not look it, but it can be!
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation has a medium coverage, oil control very well, lasting around 6 hours. Love it.
I have tried so many foundations over the past months including Dior, mac, Estée Lauder, sheishdo! And nothing compares to Nars Sheer Glow Foundation! It is absolutely flawless, I've had so many compliments since wearing it! It has a dewy finish yet it still is medium coverage! Can be built to full! It feels light I have nothing on and doesn't weigh down on my skin it's lovely! I think I have found my wholly grail of foundations, I will definitely be repurchasing soon! Highly recommend.
I find this Nars Sheer Glow Foundation to be quite misleading. There's hardly anything sheer or glowy about it. I expected this to give me a sheer and glowy finish but instead it's more matte with a medium coverage instead of a sheer one. It does give me good coverage and makes my skin look flawless but because it's so matte I'm not using it anymore.
This is my second nars sheer glow foundation and I have yet to find anything better! This foundation gives a natural finish to my skin and its not drying like some foundations I've used before. Love it!
First of all, the shipping free delivery to Germany is a very special service and the foundation arrived just a few days after placing my order. That is amazing. To the foundation: The color Mont Blanc matches my skin perfectly. It is a very easy to blend foundation and the coverage is about medium. Unfortunately it does not cover my hyperpigmentation completely, but it makes my skin look more even and the finish is really pretty. It lasts very well. This is one of my three favorite foundations, with the others being Make up for ever and Dior airflash. Overall I am very pleased with the order handling and the foundation performance.
I have used this foundation for at least two years ... I found it difficult to get a shade close to my skin tone ... But the nars matches up quite well.. It's very light ... Compared to mac ones which are very heavy .. I like my skin tone to show thru and this does that ... My bottle lasts me at least a year too as you don't need to put much of this on I don't even need co concealer when wearing this as it looks quite natural but at the same time can build the coverage up on problem areas ... Use the sheer matte one for heavier coverage and for Oily skin ... Or this one for neat perfect skin
I really like this foundation. It gives a nice coverage and stays put throughout the whole day. My skin has recently been suffering and this doesn't cling onto my dry patches. However I did stupidly order the wrong shade but no worries I have made it work. Couldn't recommend it enough
Love this foundation, it lasts most of the day and is not sheer or oily. Perfect!
The first foundation I've ever tried which actually matches my skintone. It blends so well and feels very nice on the skin. The foudnation does not need to be set with a powder which is good because I have dry skin and I don't like using powder. The foundation does not cling to dry patches either, at least not on my skin. It lasts all day and does not need to be reapplied. The finish is not as glowy as I expecte it to be but more of a natural to a satin finish. I don't mind that at all. Also the coverage can be sheered out but with one pump I get a light to medium coverage on my face. I love this foundation and I would repurchase it. I also would it recommend for very fair and pale skintones.
Became my 'go to' foundation because of the finish, and the fact that my dry part of the skin looks great and not like mud
I used the shade stromboli before and now changed to barcelona. The colours are similar, not a huge difference. I found stromboli too yellow. Barcelona is ok for my medium tan. Thwarting foundation is really good, also for acne skin. It doesn't irritate.
This foundation is an all rounder. Its buildable so covers blemishes, gives a dewy finish without looking sweaty or oily, matches a whole range of skin tones and lasts all day. (Even longer when you wear the Nars Primer underneath). The only thing i would mention is when it dries it will darken a little so be sure to get a slightly lighter colour than your skin. Also, its easy to waste this foundation due to the screw top, just be sure to pour too little out than too much as with a high price tag this is not ideal. All in all - love it. My main beauty product.
This is the perfect colour match for my very pale skin. I have yellow undertones and quite a lot of redness in my cheeks and bought the foundation in the shade Siberia. I have struggled for so long to find a foundation pale enough for me and this blends in seamlessly and with no effort. I am thrilled! However this foundation is not sheer at all. It has a good medium coverage which is buildable. Of course you can sheer it out while applying it. I wouldn't describe the finish as dewy or glowy but more velvety. The foundation does not cling to dry patches, is easy to blend and does not wear off during the day.
This is a great foundation if you like a natural look. It is not sheer as the name suggests (not even close to a tinted moisturiser) but light to medium coverage. I am very pale and I usually struggle to find the right colour with other brands but not with NARS: Gobi is perfect (and there are even paler shades). Easy to apply with fingers and foundation brush. 4 stars as it has an OK staying power (not all day though) and it does not come with a pump.
