The Nars Sheer Matte Foundation has to be hands down the best foundation I have ever used!! The formula is very creamy and lightweight, making it a dream to apply by hand or brush. Whatever application method you prefer, this will give a flawless base. This foundation is much raved about, and I wanted a piece of the action to really see for myself how amazing this can be and let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed.
With Nars Foundation in Mont Blanc (Natural Makeup Look)
My skin does look slightly shiny but this is because I use an enhancing moisturiser and mask as I prefer a healthy glow and I also used GLAMGLOW Youthmud the day before these photos 😛
I opted for the second lightest shade in the range, and feel the collection is very true to colour and matches perfectly with my skin tone. Foundation can always be a trouble for me, especially as my skin is pale, so this was a great advantage for me to see that NARS had a wide selection of shades for different skin tones, compared to other high-end brands.
As I mentioned above the formula is very creamy and light weight, giving a natural effortless look on the skin and making the application process quick and easy. Once applied the formula looks like a second skin and very natural, I also like how the matte really brightens my complexion up. I have oily skin so the sheer matte was recommended for my skin type, but I feel the sheer glow will be much similar and I am hoping to get my hands on this next, but I often find my shade goes out of stock quicker than others 🙁
The foundation looks very sheer on the skin and gives a beautiful finish with a healthy glow and it also comes oil free so you can build the coverage to how you prefer if you want a less natural approach that is. I notice after using this for a couple of months now that my skin looks more smooth, softer and naturally brighter than it was before, with continual use of the Nars Sheer Matte Foundation every day and it has also evened out my skin tone. It absorbs oil beautifully and lasts all day, even in the warmest of weather, I find it stays put and doesn’t melt or rub off easily, compared to other liquid foundations I have used in the past.
This foundation is a great option for all skin types, not just oily and it also contains powerful anti-oxidants to protect against damaging free radicals and the environment. You will also find turmeric extract in this formula to help improve skin’s radiance and tone, not only this but turmeric is great for healing dry skin and skin conditions such as acne and eczema, whilst slowing down the ageing process of the skin. You will find that turmeric is the main ingredient in the Nars Sheer Matte Foundation that creates glowing skin and increased blood flow for a flawless complexion as it also gives a slight exfoliation when applied to the skin, and this helps to renew skin cells for brighter, smoother skin.
I will definitely be buying this again once I finish this bottle and unfortunately, they don’t seem to sell the shade Mont Blanc under the Matte formula and only the Sheer Glow. I was wanting to try the Sheer Glow next time but in the future, I will have to find a similar shade to Mont Blanc for the Matte version and invest in a foundation pump from the Nars website.
