Nars Sheer Matte Foundation Review

 
 
 

I bought this product as I absolutely adore Nars, they are an amazing company and I love their products.  I was recommend this foundation as it is aimed for combo / oily skin, gives a full coverage and matte finish.

It cost £29.50 for 30ml of product and I got it from Frasers in Glasgow.  I use the colour 'Siberia', aka light1, the lightest colour.  Just call me Snow White!  The swatches above don't do the colour justice, it is much lighter in real life.

I'm not 100% sold on this on its own to be honest.  It doesn't look good on my skin on its own at all.  Actually, I'm sorry Nars, but I bloody hate it. 

I need to use a primer before hand, and mix the foundation with some face cream.  After I do that, it sits on the skin ok-ish.  If I don't do this, it separates on my skin and makes me look so disgusting that I want to go and live under a bridge.  It doesn't last all day amazingly well, I'd say it lasts half the day roughly.  If you put on a coat of powder on top it may stretch to a full day.

When used on its own I am not happy with it at all.  It doesn't blend well, dries out very quickly and looks very patchy on my skin.  It looks cakey in places, nonexistant in others and doesn't really cover well.  It also doesn't have the best smell to it.  And, the bottle is so rubbish!  I hate that it doesnt have a pump, it means a lot of product gets wasted.  Blah!

I would not buy this product again.  Serves me right for not asking for a tester!  But I've loved every other Nars product I've had so I thought it'd be ok to just buy it without trying it first.  I wanted to love it, so many other people love it but I just can't.

Sorry Nars!  Don't worry though.... You're still my favourite.

  1. I guess even the most famous brand get it wrong sometimes and it's so individual as well, but it's great to not only read positive reviews. Xx
