My first purchase from Space NK online to collect the order in store, fast delivery and £10 off when you spend £40 or more. Ofcourse I gathered this to be the perfect opportunity to try out the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm.
Firstly lets start off with the Space NK experience, the online order was unboxed and packaged in one of those lovely black and white bags and also with two generous freebies. The term retail therapy sprung to mind, the type of service that would see and probably does see many women flocking for that feel good experience from the staff on a fortnightly basis. The staff were lovely and a credit to the brand.
Moving on to the over hyped, over priced and not so amazing part of my purchase. The Nars Sheer glow foundation, not once have I seen someone sham it, people with all types of skin have labelled it as Holy Grail! Amazing shade range so you are bound to find the perfect match which is a plus. My skin is oily and dehydrated, but I have seen many people with oily skin rave about it, so why didn’t it work for me?
I found the foundation to blend well, at a first look after application my skin was “normal”. No glow, it just evened out my skin leaving it looking just okay, nothing spectacular like I expected. The worse of it all was when I looked in the mirror 4 hours later, I don’t joke when I say it was the most oily my skin had ever looked, beyond post workout, beyond post sun bathing, horrendous! I think the moral of the story is to get a sample, never will I again spend £30 plus on a foundation without trying it out. Luckily I managed to sell it on Depop without loosing out too much. The next on my list is the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation, fingers crossed I get along better with that.
What do you make of this foundation?
