I had Nars Sheer Glow months ago and it became a sore subject. The colour was far too pale for me (Mont Blanc) so was snapped up in a blog sale I ran. The buyer didn’t receive this and demanded her money back. So I lost my foundation (still good to keep for review/comparrison posts) and my money. Safe to say I didn’t repurchase this for a while.
I finally took the plunge and decided to try again, so picked up Deauville. Still a pale shade, however it has a yellow undertone, which is ideal to counter-act any redness, as opposed to leaving me ghostly-white, which Mont Blanc did.
Two pumps is far too much product for one application. A pump is sufficient, another half pump for slightly more coverage. I must say after using a brush and my hands (which is recommended), I actually find it easier to blend in with my fingertips. It gives slightly more coverage and the warmth from my fingertips helps to blend into the skin perfectly. The shade is perfect for my skin-tone, but in terms of the foundation it is not the best I have tried.
Any dry patches became really obvious, the formula seems to stick to these like glue. As the name suggests the coverage is fairly sheer, if you’re looking for full coverage then this isn’t it. Head to Estee Lauder and pick up Double Wear instead.
I’m not sure now I have the right shade, if I would re-purchase this again. However it is early days and I’m still giving this a road test. If I find a better way to use this then I will keep you updated.
