Nars Sheer Glow Review

What they say: A glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, skin is hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves skin brightness, radiance and texture. For normal to dry skin types.

What I say: This gives a medium coverage. Although I don't get they dewy, glowing finish, I do feel that it did even out my skintone and at the same time cover up my redness and some bumps. As for radiance wise, umm... well, maybe its because of my extremely dry skin, the foundation did seems to sink into my skin and I don't get that luminous glow (as the name suggests). I guess that's just me because many beauty gurus swears that they look rather ravishing when using this.

I like how smoothly this liquid foundation goes onto my skin. I don't have to rub it in or blend it in quickly as it doesn't dries up too fast. And best of all, it doesn't feel heavy on my skin as well as not caking up after a day of sweating. Doesn't slide off, no streaky application, doesn't enlarge my pores, covers imperfection, has a nice smell to it, long-lasting and it apparently hydrates my skin too. OMG!!! What more can I say with this incredible product??

My only complain, is indeed the absence of a pump. Its such a hassle to pour the liquid out. Therefore, I kinda like press my fingers to the opening and obtain the product bit by bit. 

And ummm, there's no freaking indication in English on the bottle that says I'm in the shade Fiji. Oh yeah, by the way, I'm using my fingers to apply this foundation. It definitely melts with the warmth from my fingers.

Packaging: 7/10 
Function: 10/10
Price: £46. 6/10 (I bought this in Japan, therefore the exchange rate totally blew me off)
Repurchase: A BIG YES
