NARS Sheer Glow Foundation


 Liverpool has now welcomed the new NARS counter into the heart of the city, Liverpool One. Situated in the new Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, it's in the perfect place to show itself off.
Having never come across a NARS counter, I knew I had to dive into the deep end and get stuck in with testing the products that you all rave about through the blogging community!

I picked up the Sheer Glow liquid foundation that is meant to give you a healthy glowy/dewy look as well as hydrate the skin. Its a high-end product and may burn a little hole in your pocket, however this product goes a long way and will last you a long time! The packing is simple and plain and it comes in a glass bottle. It doesn't come with a pump so beware that if you need one, you can purchase one from a NARS counter for £1.50. If not, you can tip a little out into the lid and use it as a palette. 

Since using, I have received many compliments about my glow-y look and I am super pleased that it's had such an effect! There are 20 shades to choose from and being pale myself, I grabbed 'Mont Blanc' which is the second lightest shade! There is  much variety and you can get matched up at the counter by the lovely staff! 

It also contains turmeric extract to improve skin's radiance and tone which has a luminous effect and it leaves the skin feeling hydrated with a sheer finish! Coverage is up to you, you can build it up to suit you without it looking cake-like and thick!
For those of you looking for a matte-face-look, they have the same shades in a matte foundation!

TIP #1 : It doubles up as a concealer for little blemishes or dark circles under eyes.

TIP #2: Apply with hands and leave the brush aside. Using your hands means it warms the foundation and is more likely to match with your skin tone and texture! You can build up certain areas more easily with your hands I find!
