      I love this foundation. I own the shade stromboli and it's absolutely the most perfect foundation ever. It lasts all day long and doesn't get too oily as long as you set your face. I get so many compliments when I wear this foundation, it's ridiculous. I plan on getting this in a darker shade for summertime because I can't live without this foundation. If you like a nice medium coverage and you have dry skin, this is perfect for you.

        I love Nars, one of my favorites brand ever. Ok, so I have the luminous all day, and obviously I'm obsessed I need this one as well, I was reading the reviews and people said a good things and bad things. I have combination Skin, mostly oily let me tell you when I put this on my skin I look matte whit a perfect glow, looks like my skin. All day looking flawless, everything blends well I'm so in love. Give it a try. All foundations don't work on everyone wells, but trying first before you get the full size.

        Nars Does It Again

        By Shiraz

        from Austin tx

        Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

        I wanna start off by saying that this foundation is definitely NOT sheer. The coverage is definitely on the medium side and is buildable- that is why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. However, it is a stunning foundation if you have dry skin- since my skin is super dry the finish is on the "natural" end of the spectrum but I'm sure if you have more normal skin it will make you look like a glowing dewy goddess. Last downfall is no pump but other than that it is a great foundation.

        Heavier coverage than sheer and does oxidize

        Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

        I would say this foundation is heavier than a sheer coverage, it is more of a medium coverage. It gives an amazing dewy finish but I have found that after awhile it settles into lines and does not stay on even with a primer and moisturizer. The finish it gives the first few hours is an amazing dewy finish though. I have also found that the color oxidizes. I am one of the lightest shades but after awhile I tend to look oddly tan or like my face is "dirty". I have found that a damp beauty blender is best to put this on. I also noticed that this makeup started to dry my skin out after using it for awhile (I have used it off and on for about a year). I have acne prone skin and I don't believe it broke me out terribly but it did give me some acne on my chin. I honestly tried to love this foundation for so long but have had to try other things due to the heaviness of it and oxidation :(

          Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

          This review is coming from a very dry and dehydrated skinned gal... so if you're happy with your skin's hydration, don't let this review affect you.
          I've been hunting for a glowy hydrating foundation for years and years. Yet because of my super dry skin even the most dewy foundations look duller and somewhat semi matte on me. This Nars sheer glow unfortunately doesn't look glowy on me as I'd hoped, it looks somewhat matte. I have the driest Tzone also, so it emphasized all those patches... It also sinks in my smile lines... Another con I found is it takes quite a lot of product for one application, so I went through half a bottle pretty quickly.
          I used it on my girl friend who has normal skin, and it looks wonderful on her. Youthful, dewy, smooth... It's such a great product if you don't have the driest skin like mine.

          So all in all, my personal stance on this Nars sheer glow foundation is it doesn't really work for me. If you suffer from very very dry skin like I do, you may want to look for another foundation.

          Beautiful finish for dry skin

          By Sunny

          from Pittsburgh PA

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

          This is not full coverage, but not light at the same time. It's buildable, blendable and has a good color range. Will make skin a little oily over the course of a day, but looks beautiful at first and for the first few hours. I have normal skin and not even that oily. I still like it and sometimes even mix it with more matte foundations. I have previously had Fiji which is probably better for my NC 25 skin. Winter I am NC 20 to NC 15 and use Deuville which is much lighter than Fiji with still a slightly yellow undertone. Not pink at all. For a really beautiful combo I use NARS light reflecting loose powder on top.

            Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

            I have tried many foundations on the market, from drugstore to high end, in all varieties, from Matte, dewy, low and high coverage. I have combo/dry skin (normal/oily in summer) this foundation gives me a skin like look and feel once applied with a beauty sponge. It is definitely not sheer, great pigmentation covers any acne scars and hyper-pigmentation, and when it comes to my dry skin i always moisturize to keep foundation from looking cakey, but again applying with a beauty sponge is key! It will last a complete workday on me, as long as i powder any areas that are known to get oily throughout the day. Great foundation, will definitely repurchase.

              Comments about NARS Online Only Sheer Glow Foundation:

              Don't buy Siberia unless you are literally the fairest in the land. Most brands I am the lightest shade but NARS takes far more skin tones into consideration and their shade range is fantastic so I should have known better. I needed Deauville, but Siberia mixed with a little bit of a bronzed bb cream and a light dusting of bronzer makes this work. This foundation plays well with other products. Works best with a brush in my opinion and it sets quickly. I'd say you can go medium coverage with this but less is more in this case. I really love how natural this looks - even with the wrong shade! (Oops). And I have combination skin. Brightens my dry spots and lasts the average day in the oily parts of my face (t zone) Definitely worth a try if you're interested in buying NARS products. Becoming one of my favorite brands as they are very consistent with quality. Also, if a dropper or pump is necessary for you I'd suggest purchasing one separately if you can because this baby doesn't come with one.

                  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.

                I use the shade "Light Beige" in the Too Faced foundation. I've been wanting to try the Nars Sheer Glow foundation but I have no idea which shade is best for me since I'm new to using makeup.

                Medium shades. Looks like they are numbered for different undertones not just depths. Is Punjab deeper than Santa Fe? Or just slightly warmer? What about Vallauris vs Barcelona? Thanks!!

                  A:

                  Santa Fe is going to be a little deeper than Punjab with a similar undertone base. Barcelona is much deeper than Vallauris with completely different undertones. Vallauris is for skin that is very much on the pink side with Barcelona being for very gold undertones.

              • Q:

                Hi, I used to wear the Powder Foundation from Nars in shade Barcelona. Is Sheer Glow the same? I was advised someplace else that it was much darker and pointed at Santa Fe, and it didn't seem too light but left a slightly ashy or grey cast. Stromboli is a touch either too yellow or dark. I am definitely medium for summer in this range, not light. My local store does *not* have this line, so help is appreciated!

                Thanks in advance!

                  A:

                  Because of the difference between the powder and liquid formulas, the same shade names can vary. The same shade in Sheer Glow will probably be lighter than it was in the powder variation. Our full description of shades and undertones is below for Sheer Glow.
