I don't buy too many high end products, but this is the one exception I make as have repurchased it a good 4 times by now. Whilst expensive, the product lasts a surprisingly long time and is easily blended, with great coverage, is not cakey and stays on a lot longer than drugstore 'dupes'. 100% recommend.

Finally found the perfect foundation for my dry/oily skin. I would never change again. Tried so many cheaper and more expensive foundation before I started to use this. My absolutely number one on every day use. Coverage is light to medium.

I received a little tester of this foundation to try out and I absolutely love it. It covers well but feels lightweight and the shade matches my skin perfectly when I’m tanned. It looks flawless and just has the edge over Mac foundation which I normally wear most. I think this is going to be my new daily go to now, I must pop out and buy a full size bottle.

I read reviews on this and had to try it. I was thoroughly disappointed. It is extremely heavy coverage, can't use much and goes cakey through the day, my oils come through so bad! Much prefer my drugstore purchase.

I managed to cover up a nasty spot and this leaves a flawless fiinish. I was actually given this by my daughter who got the wrong shade and i love it. Amazing and will buy this from now on. Perfect as i am a make up artist.

I absolutely love this foundation. I usually go for something that doesnt hurt my pocket so i usually use drugstore stuff. This was on sale which was the only reason i bought it. Love how it gives me the coverage i need. I can build up on it but i rarely do.

While this is a good foundation, there are plenty of high-street foundations which go on more smoothly, blend better and last longer (shout-out to loreal pro-glow). I find this foundation, with and without a primer, tends to dry up and flake around the base of my nose - which is oily not dry 😅 - after only a few hours of wear.

I’m a real fan of Nars complexion cosmetics and this is a great one. The name confuses me into thinking it wasn’t a foundation for me but I don’t actually find it particularly sheer or glowing. It has a natural demi matte finish and great coverage, which is light, easy to apply and blend and lasts well all day with no fading. I find it blurs my pores and there is a pretty wide ranging shade selection. I need a very fair neural shade with the tiniest hint of pink and ‘monc blanc’ is my perfect shade. I set with a light covering of Coty airspun powder and I can trust that it’s going to look great the whole time I am wearing it. Doesn’t crease or settle into fine lines, I don’t find that it oxideses at all on my skin and I’m generally very impressed. My only complaint is that it doesn’t have a pump and with the price I really don’t feel that I should have to pay extra for one!

I bought this as I always saw it on you tube and drug store foundations were just sinking in to my skin and disappearing, not this sheer glow it makes me look like I have a natural glow it feel lightweight and lively on the skin and my mother and sisters are always pinching it for them selves too. It's well worth the money. Wish it came of a pump though.

I first decided to try this after normal drugstore foundations weren’t making me happy. My sister recommended this foundation and I’m glad she did! It’s coverage is amazing even on my dry patches. The price isn’t bad for the amount you get in the bottle I also love this foundation because it can be applied with your fingers! Which I much prefer as I feel that you waste product using brushes etc. I’d definitely buy again! The match to my skin is perfect too!

I’m in my late 30’s, blonde, blue eyes, pale and freckled and this is a brilliant foundation for me. It’s light feeling with a decent coverage without looking cakey. I went for the shade Mont Blanc and find this is a good match for me.
It blends well when applied with a sponge/brush or fingers.
Will certainly buy again

I had high hopes for this foundation being a huge fan of nars luminous weightless foundation, but sadly though it looks lovely when first applied as soon as I get a little warm it completely disintegrates on my skin, within a couple of hours on a warm day it had completely melted off! Thinking this may be great with someone who has dry skin but sadly not the best for combination/oily skin types.

This gives me a sheer glow all over just like promised! I do have to prep my face up with a good cleanser and moisturiser ( primer isn’t even needed!) Using the real techniques face brush, I am left with an amazing blended base buffed to perfection. It lasts allll day ( I tested it for 9 hours and it had hardlyyy budged -just slightly around my forehead but that was bound to happen as I get oily around there) It’s hydrating for my dry skin and makes my skin feel so much better. For someone with dry/oily skin this is the perfect foundation , it’s worth the £33-just wish it was a bigger bottle!

Where have I been that I am new to this foundation now? Its amazing! I have normal skin which can veer slightly oily or dry at different times (helpful!). Nars Sheer glow works no matter what. It goes on easily and buffs in perfectly. It has a very natural finish and lasts all day. I feel it is medium coverage but could be built up to almost full but also mixed with a drop of oil or moisturiser it works brilliant for a sheer coverage. Its comes in a great shade range too. It doesn't come with a pump which is annoying but I definitely recommend buying one for £3.
