Foundation Of the Month- NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

If you are looking for a new foundation, I got you covered. I decided to start a foundation series over on my Insta page because I realised I have a few foundations and its only best to share which ones work well and have enough shades for dark skin tones! So the challenge I set myself is this, every month (I made a rota guys smh), I stick to using 1 foundation and report back to you guys. I am loving the challenge so far because I am enjoying rediscovering some foundations I had in my collection! Doing this has also shown me how far I have come in selecting better foundation shades & undertones for my skin tone. I am also learning how to work with the shades that aren’t quite a good match but not bad enough to sell or throw away

Anyway, let’s get into it!

For February, I decided to go with the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I’m in the shade Benares

This was my 1st foundation from NARS and it hasn’t let me down! So much so that I went back for another and I trust NARS completely when it comes to complexion stuff!

Sheer Glow is easily my favourite foundation! Nothing sheer about the coverage, in fact it’s a medium coverage that can easily be built up if needed. Glowing healthy finish, my skin looks smooth and non-cakey. This foundation feels like nothing on the skin! Photographs so well, in fact, it’s the foundation I reach for I know I am going to an event. Below is a picture of me as a bridesmaid at my brother’s wedding last year. It was summer and that day was particularly hot PLUS bridesmaid duties but the Sheer Glow didn’t budge

For a glowing finish foundation, it works really well in the summer! It leaves the skin radiant without looking too oily and works well for my normal to oily combo skin type.

One thing I have noticed about this foundation and shade, it can look orange when first applied( I was scared the very 1st time I used it!) but after it blends in and settles, I believe it adapts to the skin ( I could be wrong!)

The only con is that it doesn’t come with a pump so I bought that separately. You also can’t put the cap back on once the pump is in. sighs

Sheer Glow is available in 33 shades

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
