The past few weeks I've been trying to find the 'one' in a foundation. I've used friends, blagged little samples and thought long and hard about the ones I've used in my life time.
As part of my military quest, I recently tried the Lancome Teint Idol Ultra which was a huge fail. (Read here) So it was on to the next, and that happened to be Nars Sheer Glow foundation.
All I can say is WOW and YAY! I'm seriously impressed with this beauty.
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"

This foundation is pretty good. It has a really thin consistency and I can imagine a bottle lasting forever. A small 50p Blob was actually too much for my face. I only had a tiny sachet but it has lasted me 4 whole days. Regardless of the consistency being thin, the coverage is out of this world. I've got quite a few spots on my chin and have always had loads of freckles but my lord, this stuff really does cover. I didn't need concealer or anything!
Another thing I like about this foundation is, unlike some other brands it doesn't dry too quick which gives you the perfect amount of time to blend it in properly. Woohoo! After application I could definitely notice a little glow and my skin looked even and radiant (please see last picture)
After 6 hours of shopping I went home and took another look to see how it lasted and guess what? It's still all intact and no touch up was needed!
The only negative things I have to say about this foundation is the Price. It retails at £29.50 which is quite steep for a foundation however, it would last so long it would be worth it.
A girls hunt for the Holy Grail of foundation is never over so I will be reviewing more in the up and coming weeks.
I have definately put this on my Xmas list and cannot wait to own a full bottle. Here's too radiant, well covered skin.
