Y’all know I love me some NARS, it’s safe to say that it’s my favourite make up brand of all time. Yes, Kanye…of all time!
There’s a few products that I have repurchased more than once and today I have two base products that are cult level when it comes to NARS – Sheer Glow Foundation and Laguna Bronzer. I recently repurchased both products and realised that I’d never actually reviewed either on my blog! Disgraceful behaviour, I know.
Let’s start with Sheer Glow, I have the shade Santa Fe which is pretty much a dead-on match for my skin, maybe a little warmer. I had not repurchased this foundation in a while, mainly because I have been trying out other brands and testing the waters so to speak. I finally got round to adding it back into my rotation and boy am I glad I did. What’s great about this foundation is that it has zero SPF. That sounds like an odd thing to be happy about but it means that there’s no flashback aka the dreaded ‘ghost face’ when using flash photography. That perk probably only really matters to brides but I remember looking back at old photos on nights out and it looked like I had a brown body and a super pale face. Not a good look, honey.
I find I wear Sheer Glow for evenings, especially if someones got a camera with flash (what cameras don’t have flash these days?). The name of the foundation is slightly misleading – it’s not a sheer coverage and it’s not overly glowy. In fact the coverage is medium and buildable and it gives a rather natural finish – not too matte, nor too dewy. It’s a great choice for perfected skin as it really evens out the skin tone and blends into the skin seamlessly. I find it incredibly long lasting on my oily mug too!
Ah Laguna Bronzer, the creme de la creme of bronzers. I don’t think I know many people who haven’t tried or coveted this bronzer – it’s probably the most popular one out there. Firstly, the compact is a great size and lasts for a long time which definitely justifies it’s price. Laguna is the perfect bronzing colour – it’s not too orange, nor too muddy. I find it works fantastically as a contour too as it has a good amount of depth to the colour. In fact, I’ve been using it in the crease of my eye to add warmth and definition rather than a regular eyeshadow.
Are these two worth all the hype? Absolutely.
