Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review

I have been wanting to repurchase a bottle of Nars Sheer Glow for months and months. When my first bottle finished I was really sad as it is simply one of the best foundations which I have ever tried. My previous bottle lasted me a good few months, but when it ran out I was a poor student and spending £31 on a foundation was simply not an option. However, now I have my full time job and therefore earning this means I am now able to treat myself when payday comes around. Last weekend whilst browsing the beauty hall of Selfridges I decided that it was time to splash the cash and finally repurchase it. 

I previously had the shade Monte Blanc (Light 2), and when I looked at it again in the shop it looked a little too pale for me. I swatched Deauville (Light 4) as I thought it was a better match to my skintone at the moment. I decided to take the plunge and make the change in colour. I have worn this a few times since I bought it and it is a pretty good match, maybe a tiny bit darker than my skintone but it works really well and was a risk worth taking. This foundation does exactly what it says it gives glow. It gives a natural radiance and luminosity to the skin. I would say the coverage is medium but it is definitely buildable. This would be great for normal and dry skin types as the formula is hydrating. There is one slight negative to this which is something which I find in most foundations, the longevity of it lasting on the skin. It does last a good few hours with it still looking as fresh as when it is first applied, which is why this is always my go to foundation for any night time events. However, if like me you do 13 hours shifts you are really able to put foundations to the longevity test. I do find that it starts to fade in areas which I need more coverage, but it does not lose the radiance. Just to let you know, I do always use primer and fixing spray when applying any foundation to help it last longer. 

All in all, this is always my top pick foundation and the only high end one which I have ever repurchased. I always think it is similar to L'Oreal's True Match (my second fave) but with more glow and life. If you are wanting to spoil yourself come payday then add this to your basket and you will not be disappointed.
