NARS foundations and I have a bit of a tumultuous history. Back before NARS was available here in Malaysia (you lucky young ‘uns!) I stayed away from trying their base products. It was too risky trying to pick a foundation based solely on online swatches.
So, the very first time I tried a NARS foundation, was during a trip to Thailand, where I picked up a bottle of Sheer Matte foundation (which I believe has been discontinued in favour of the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, one I have not tried and have no desire to due to its unsuitability with my skin type) What a mistake that was! The day I found out it was discontinued, I danced a jig.
Although the shade in Mont Blanc was just right for me, the texture was such a failure, I gave up on all their foundations thereafter, in a fit of pique. However, some of you were persistent. You told me to please, for the love of God and all that’s flawless, PLEASE try the Sheer Glow, which will WOW me.
Are you sure? I asked.
YES! You will LOVE IT! I was assured.
So, after dithering over it for a couple of years (I take my time to make up my mind, evidently 😛 ) I took the chance on the NARS Sheer Glow foundation, which I wear in Mont Blanc (Light 2).
The big question of course, is whether I am wowed, or am I about to slap this one silly and swear off all NARS foundations for good?
