Favourites: Foundation

Friday, 5 February 2016

Foundation is probably the most crucial part of my make up routine. When I was younger, we would choose a (very, very wrong) shade of dream matte mousse and pile it on with a (terrible) 99p sponge. Needless to say, this did not look good! I'm not attaching photos in this case because I can't bear to look at them myself, but it's clear that foundation can make or break your whole look. As a girl with very pale, very dry skin, I need a foundation that can compliment my features rather than draw attention to them. Since I took the leap into the world of high(-er) end foundation, I've found a whole trove of new shades and formulas. None of those perform for me quite like Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.

It is clearly described as 'Sheer' foundation, however, I find the coverage to be really build-able. For me, it's more medium - full coverage. I find it to be a slightly more hydrating version of Estee Lauder's Double Wear. As I mentioned I have really dry skin and this very rarely clings to any of my dry patches! I always moisturise and apply primer before applying any cosmetics anyway but this foundation absolutely suits my skin the most. Let's just say the hype is real! As you can see below I have a collection of different bases, but the Nars Sheer Glow clearly has the most unique shade visible.

The only flaw I can find is that it doesn't come with a pump! When you're paying £31 for a foundation, I would accept a pump. The glass packaging is sweet, but I find pumps to be far more hygienic. I buy all my Nars products at ASOS as I have premier (free next day) delivery and they offer great student discount! Have you had a good experience with Sheer Glow? What's your favourite foundation/base?

  1. Yeah I'd want a pump for that much, too! I've always wanted to try this but I've been put off by the price.
