I looked up the recommended ways to apply Sheer Glow. NARS recommends using your fingers, so I did that. I used it over a primer, and I used it without. Both times it dried down patchy and parched. I tried using a blender sponge, with and without primer. No dice. I tried with a brush, with and without primer. Nada.
I wore this one day to work and I was horrified to see it clumping up and fading away throughout the day. I was so embarrassed with how my makeup looked. It was fading from my nose and chin, and clumping up everywhere else. I took it off immediately when I got home.
I gave this a two star rating for the shade match, which was spot on. But this joins the All Day Luminous and the Natural Radiant Longwear foundations in that none of them work for me, they all get gross and fade away, and disappoint me. I had such high hopes for this product, but for the cost, it's not worth the effort to try and make it work.
The formula is watery so it made it really easy to apply with my fingers. When I was done with the application, I went to the bathroom for better lighting to check it out and dammmmmnnnnnn my face look #flawless! It was more matte than what I expected but it made my face look so creamy and blurred out my blemishes. I do have bumpy skin near my cheeks and the foundation did enhance it a little, but it's not super noticeable.
This is definitely the next foundation I'm gonna buy! It's a bit pricey though; ~$47.
I have applied this with both a beautyblender and multiple types of foundation brushes. It always blended well and never looked streaky or cakey.
I can no longer use this because I need more coverage at the moment, but when my skin gets better I am definitely going to repurchase!
