|Nars Sheer Glow - Siberia|
As an avid reader of blogs and watcher of youtube videos I often get sucked into the never ending hype around certain products and want to try them out for myself. This can be bad for my bank balance and when a product doesn't live up to my expectations it seems like a hell of a waste of money. Sometimes the hype is deserved, but sometimes I think people just rave about a product because it is "popular". So I'm starting a new series, "Worth the hype?", which will include my thoughts and honest opinions of hyped up products.
I'm starting off with Nars Sheer Glow, as this is probably one of the most talked about and loved foundations ever. It seemed perfect for me - good coverage, a glow-like finish, and a good colour range for pale skinned gals. My shade is Siberia which is pretty good for my complexion because of its pale, yellow tone - however it's almost too yellow to be honest verging on the edge of looking like Homer Simpson. That's not the only negative thing I can say about it though, by far its the least. Where do I start? Well it sat on my skin, was extremely heavy, and clinged to dry patches like no other (this could've been down to trying it in winter). I don't know why on earth it's called sheer glow; there was nothing sheer or glowy about it! Oh, and it broke me out, baaaad. This foundation costs £30 - I've learnt my lesson, get a sample.
