NARS Sheer Glow...sheer fail?

I picked up a sample of NARS Sheer Glow foundation last week, and sadly it left me disappointed.

Almost every beauty blogger has nothing but amazing things to say about it. Obviously, I really wanted it to work for me because I love anything that will give me a dewy finish.

I got matched up to the color Santa Fe. The foundation has more of a yellow tone to it, which will not leave you orange like a lot of MAC foundations (one plus!).

I'm not one for buying full coverage foundations, but I don't feel like this one covered much at all. I used my MAC #187 to apply it, and also my fingers. Maybe I need to try a different brush or a different primer.

The main complaint I have is that it TOTALLY cakes into any dry spots on my skin. It left my skin more dry than giving it an actual glow. Maybe it's more of a summer foundation, rather than winter.

PS- Sephora gives out generous foundation samples!

  1. I'm still on the search for the perfect foundation. I haven't tried NARS. I have issues with caking on my face and showing all my dry spots as well. :(
