Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nars liquid foundation I tried Nars as a different brand as I have heard positive reviews. However I won’t be purchasing again - the foundation does not provide strong cover for me and I was disappointed this was the case

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Really liked the foundation very much though i have oily skin. Only need to apply mattifying primer and loose powder. And it will be all set. The only problem is the foundation is a bit too pricy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sheer glow Yukon The product is great. My only issue is the packaging. Because it is in a glass bottle, there is leftover product that coats the sides when getting close to the end of the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NARS Sheer glow foundation Great foundation, was looking for a medium type coverage that would see me through the day at work. Totally keeps it look all day and comes off with a gentle make up wipe no problem. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation ever! Absolutely love this foundation. I've spent hundreds over the years trying to find a suitable foundation for my sensitive, fair, prone to breakouts skin that would look natural and last all day. After discovering Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (Mont Blanc), i've never looked back. It lasts me for about 6-7months, using daily and only need a tiny bit. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely foundation! Such a great product. Love the glow for everyday skin , but also easily buildable for a fuller coverage! Stays all day too! Only downfall is I wish it had a pump.. I know you can buy them but i feel it’s an essential for a foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Although it says sheer it covers so well. It feels light weigh. Almost as if you had nothing on but still covers my acne scars. I bought the pump to go with it and 3 pumps covers my whole face and blends down my neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match!! I used the meet your match tool on the website and was extremely skeptical and expecting to have to return it. NOPE! The match was perfect and I am so happy I used it. Make sure to use good lighting when taking your picture. The foundation makes my skin look fresh and natural with a glow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pleased! Excellent foundation :) I’ve used the same foundation for 20 years Mac studio fix and needed a change due to me being older & skin changes! I researched for ages what is the best foundation for my age & skin type and all results came back to NARS sheer glow for the coverage I was needing ( subtle & fresh true match to skin colour with a good coverage) that also stays on all day! I wasn’t disappointed it’s such a lovely light but excellent coverage foundation it leaves a very fresh looking skin! I will not be going back to my old favourite. This is my new favourite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most underrated foundation I personally love the Radiant Longwear and I have the Matte foundations in my kit. I needed something a little more versatile in my collection for my clients with dry skin or clients who don't care for full coverage. This foundation is super buildable in a way where you don't have to keep layering on the product. It covers well while still looking incredibly natural. I use a fluffy brush to apply and it gives a beautiful airbrush effect. The only drawback is that it doesn't come with a pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Foundation [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like this foundation. I was wearing Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Serum Makeup for a very long time. Only foundation that was oil free, fragrance free, did not pronounce wrinkles or break out my acne-prone skin. Well guess what, of course, they discontinued it. So I have been on the quest to find a replacement. I do not like Estee Lauder Double wear as I feel it pronounces and settles into fine lines and wrinkles. I have tried at least 5 foundations to replace my Perfectionist makeup but nothing came close until I found this NARS foundation. It is heavier than what you would think since it is a sheer foundation. You just need to only use a little bit and it states using your fingers to warm it up on your hand is the best application. I find that to be true. It has just been a couple weeks but I think this is going to be my choice as a replacement to my favorite foundation that was sadly discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY found a keeper that works with oily skin! I’ve been wearing sheer glow foundation for almost a year now and I’m still obsessed! I wish I gave it a try earlier, but with problematic skin I didn’t think this would work for my skin, but it does! It’s buildable coverage that does not sink into my pores. I never thought I could wear a liquid foundation because of my oily skin and this foundation does not make my skin look oily even after a few hours. I love the coverage, I love how the shade (I wear Punjab) goes on my skin and blends perfectly! A little goes a long way so you’re not using too much product. Thank you NARS!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not meant for people with DRY skin I wanted to love this. One of my favorite influencers raves about NARs foundation so I had been dying to try. As it turns out we have very different skin types. Don't get me wrong I'm not knocking the brand. I have purchased products I love. This is not one of them. I have very dry skin and my skin is a flaky mess with this foundation. No matter what I try I can't get it to look right and had to wash it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOUNDATION Just as the name implies, the foundation gives you a sheer glowing look yet covers remarkably well. It covers my redness and dark spots without looking heavy and is hydrating for my dry skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Love this product. It works best with my skin type since I tend to be more oily. It is a great full coverage foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive but Glowing Skin I LOVE this foundation. I don't splurge on much but this is a need to have item. I've been using it for more than ten years and it is the only foundation that touches this face... that's because it's the only one that doesn't cause me to break out and it actually makes my skin look better even when I'm not wearing it. The coverage is light to medium, natural, and glowy not greasy. A little goes a long way. I'm 40, but people think I'm 28 and I'm sure at least part of that is because of this foundation + the creamy concealer.
