Sheer Glow Foundation is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 506.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Design When you purchase this foundation it doesn’t come with a pump, so you gotta purchase a new pump. After putting the pump on, it works SO MUCH BETTER AND MORE CONVENIENT. BUUUUUUT are you kidding me????? You cant put a lid/cover back on anymore???? How am I supposed to travel with a pump. Even if its locked, it can easily be unlocked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puts the others to shame I have tried every high street foundation and nearly all of the other more coveted, and expensive, brands - georgio armani, estee lauder, chanel, bobbi brown - but this has to be the best! I have pale combination skin and suffer from t-zone oily ness and dry patches, as well as break outs. This covers all my flaws and makes every day a good skin day. Coverage is medium to high without looking cakey and, unlike estee lauder, incredibly buildable. Hope my love affair with nars continues! Put a christmas order in for the concealer so fingers crossed it is as good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed - wanted this to work! I have heard rave reviews about this foundation over the years and finally convinced myself to splash out and give it a go. I have never been more dissapointed with the performance of a foundation! To the point I thought maybe I had a bad batch? I have dry-ish skin but moisturise twice daily so it’s never been an issue. This foundation looks great for the first half hour I have it on and then absolutely falls apart, looks extremely cakey and patchy. I’ve tried it multiple times with different application techniques and also with primer but it always ends up looking horrible. I’m so dissapointed as I had read such great things about it and really wanted it to work. If you have even slightly dry skin I’d say this is a waste.
