    I splurged on this product and have been pleased with it. I like a fuller-coverage foundation, which this provides, but it is so light, too! It blends easily and is long-lasting.

    Comments about NARS Sheer Glow Foundation:

    I really wanted to love this foundation because I am a NARS fan! But, it just wasn't what I expected. Great quality but I was looking for something a little lighter. Based on reviews, I thought this would be a lightweight However, you can tell it is a quality product. I do not like the open top (does not have spout) vs NARS other foundation (which I'll stick with). Also, seemed to dry out faster during application. Just not for me. I like a more natural feeling.

      Comments about NARS Sheer Glow Foundation:

      This is a fantastic light weight foundation. Per the instructions, you warm it in your hands and pat it on. It works best this way, having tried sponge and brushes. Use a small amount and blend. Apparently it includes tumeric which is know to reduce inflammation. It looks natural, not too matte. Perfect.

        Love it! A friend of mine recommended this foundation and at first I wasn't too keen on it but when I used a beauty blender instead of the brush it looked flawless. I have normal to dry skin so this foundation works amazing were it doesn't dry out and make you look cakey but more natural. The foundation is full coverage and unlike Mac it stays on literally . The color I got was barcelona and its perfect for anyone with a sand/beige complexion.

          I adore NARS Sheer Glow and wear it in two shades, depending on the time of year.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I called an Ulta near where I live, and they put this shade on hold for me. The Customer Service at Ulta is excellent.

            I've been wanting to buy this for a while and finally allowed myself to spend the money. I'm very fair and have combination to oily skin. I thought my undertones were neutral, but I got Siberia and it looks completely yellow on me. On top of that, it oxidizes after an hour, so I look jaundiced. Not good. I'll have to return it and Ulta doesn't have free returns. Ugh. (Two stars because it covers well and lasts a long time.)

              The reason I love this foundation is because of the color/pigment being olive skin tone on the lighter side it's hard to find foundation with the perfect undertone and looks and blends beautifully
              nars never fails u get what u pay for.
              This is a beautiful natural looking foundation but u can easily build it up.

              Comments about NARS Sheer Glow Foundation:

              I bought this product thinking it would be perfect and luminous for my dry skin. When you first apply it it is lightweight, and the shade was a perfect match for my skin. But this made my skin look SO dry, crusty, and patchy!! For the price I was really expecting more, but it just looked heavy and unnatural. It emphasized my pores and made me break out. Overall, terrible experience. I wanted to like it so bad but I was disappointed.

                Hi, I wear Tahoe in the All Day Luminous Weightless. Would I wear the same shade in Sheer Glow?

                  A:

                  Our shade lineup in both All Day Luminous Weightless and Sheer Glow are the same so I would first check out Tahoe in the Sheer Glow formula. There is a chance you could skew a bit darker or lighter since it is a different formula, but most likely you will be the same shade.

                I wear the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in the shade St. Moritz. Would the shade Punjab or Barcelona be a good match?

                  Hi there! I think Punjab would be the right fit for you if you wear St. Moritz in Velvet Matte Skin tint. If you need to go a little darker I would try Vallauris or Santa Fe.

                  Our Sheer Glow Foundation does not contain an SPF. Our liquid formulas with an SPF would be our Velvet Matte Skin Tint and our Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.

                  Our Sheer Glow and All Day Weightless Luminous have the same shade lineup. If you wear Punjab in All Day Luminous I would try the same shade first in our Sheer Glow formula. Please keep in mind that different formulas can produce small shade variances so there is a chance you may need to shade up or down but most likely you will be the same shade in both formulas.

                  Our Sheer Glow formula works best on normal to dry skin types as it will work to hold in skin's moisture and give all day hydration. A better formula for an oily skin type would be our All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. This is a full coverage foundation that is oil free and gives a natural-looking matte coverage all day long.
