Neither Sheer, Nor Glow- NARS Sheer Glow

UPDATE: NARS isn't cruelty-free anymore. Was this decision money driven? I do not want to judge. It is a shocking and cruel decision. I no longer support this company. 

Finding a neutral shade of foundation for a super fair person ain't easy. We all have been through the super pink or the super orange face phase. Luckily I found a perfect shade for my skin tone at the Nars counter back in 2015, and I have been faithful to 'Sheer Glow' ever since.

What is great about this foundation- it looks flawless yet natural on the skin. It's also really comfortable to wear and feels moisturising. I am a big fan of the shade 'Siberia'.
It is fair, neutral colour. And- what is most important- it doesn't oxidise.

'Sheer Glow' comes in a wide range of shades so most of the people would find something suitable for their skin tone. There is nothing more frustrating than a foundation that comes in 4 shades.

The application process is super easy and quick. I like to apply this foundation with my fingers. It blends out nicely, and sets immediately, however, I always apply powder on the top of it. It has a lovely satin finish.

This foundation lasts on my skin for the whole day (my 'days' are super long). It rubs off my nose and Cupid's bow on hot days, and to me, that is the only serious con of this foundation. It is a very good product for those with dry or normal skin. Skip it if you're combination or oily.
It has a medium coverage so it won't cover the blemishes or scars on the face.

The packaging is pretty nevertheless, it is a nightmare to travel with.
It comes without a pump (you can buy it separately for £3) however, you can't put the cap back on when you use the pump! Also, mine broke when I was going through the second bottle of sheer glow.

Taking everything into account, I would recommend this product for those with dry or normal skin. I would suggest asking for a sample at the Nars counter because it is a very pricey foundation.

Is this the best foundation I have ever used? Shade wise- yes. This is the main reason I stick to this product. I wish the pump situation was solved and price tag different, though.
