NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
I was colour matched in the Oxford St store and would recommend you don't guess your shade!
I chose Gobi which is light with yellow undertones. My other foundation is Bobbi Brown in Porcelain.The 2nd choice was Mont Blanc which is pink undertones. My skin is neutral so I decided to go for the yellow as it gives more of a lift.
On my face this foundation first looks scarily yellow but blends very well and looks natural. I needed to give it 2 applications to cover some minor blemishes- mainly sun spots which is why I've given this 4 not 5 stars- I'd like slightly heavier coverage.
Don't be put off by the word 'glow'- this foundation is in no way greasy or shiny- in fact it is quite matte.
The test for me will be in the wearing of it because so many nice foundations disappear in 3 hours even though I do not have oily skin.
Product feels very light on the skin.

Foundation is lovely, really match my skin shade. Has a nice sheer glow, makes the skin look healty. But not very good for oily skin, becouse after 4-5 hours its starts to be shinny. But for normal skin, and dry skin i think it would fit perfect.

best ever buy
i have bought so many high end foundaions recently becuase my skin was getting really dry and i wanted to try something different. i bought mac, dior clinique and bobbi brown but they were either too dewy or jus didnt give me enoug coverage. i heard about nars sheer glow and OMG it is the best foundation i have ever bought. it is so light that it goes on really easily, i first rub it in with my hands and once its dried in i put some more on with a buffing brush because i like more coverage. it makes my skin look flawless and it stays put for a long time. im so happy with this.

Best foundation for a natural glow
After just purchasing my second bottle of NARS sheer glow, i must say it is the best foundation i have tried! (i have tried pretty much every premium brand foundation out there!) I use shade - punjab, which gives a nice warm tone to my quite pale skin, i apply with a damp foundation sponge which gives a nice even coverage (and means you dont use as much foundation). I also use NARS bronzer in laguna and NARS blush, which this foundation works great with. Have tried with a primer but find it stays put just as well without. Since using sheer glow i have noticed my complexion has improved and seems naturally glowing, even without makeup. Overall - my perfect foundation!!

Lovely sheer coverage
Lovely sheer coverage, letting my freckles shine through! However needs a primer underneath to achieve a silky dewy finish . Very natural and easy to apply and will last a long time as do not need much of product .

Amazing... but not for summer
I adore this, it goes on really nicely and gives an amazingly soft glowy finish. I find that in the summer heat the finish doesnt last unless used with specifically a nars primer. I shall definately be wearing this come autumn though
