Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review

2076161F-9AC0-404B-93FB-1B50748B3D53

The company describes this foundation as having a satin finish, but I have seen a lot of other reviewers that claim it is more on the matte side. I, however, personally see that my skin has more of a glow when using this product. It is recommended for people with dry to normal skin.  The company also states that this foundation has certain properties to help moisturize, even out skin tone, and brighten the skin.

I would definitely not recommend this for people who want full coverage foundation, and maybe it is not best for people who truly want sheer foundation either as it does give a fair amount of coverage but just not full coverage. The range is 20 shades, and the price is $47.00 for 1 ounce of product. One major drawback is that the product does not come with a pump. It is a very liquidy foundation, so it is easy to blend. So overall this is not the best foundation I have tried, but it is a fairly good foundation.

Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation Review

This is definitely a full coverage foundation and it is more on the matte side. The price is $40.00 for one ounce, but I would say a little goes a long way with this product. I really like how it is full coverage, but there are two major drawbacks. One is that it oxidizes a little, and I found this no matter what primer I used. A lot of other people have said the same thing. So you might want to consider getting a shade or two lighter than what you would normally get if you buy this. The other is that it enhanced my pores and skin texture, which I really did not like. It overall was nice looking from a distance, but close up it looked really cakey. It took me forever to fix this.

If you wear this foundation and you have dry skin, I would definitely recommend using a lot of face moisturizer before using this. I think overall, this product would be better for people with normal to oily skin because it is matte and a bit drying. Since it is such a hassle to use, I will likely not repurchase this product again, especially for the price that it is.

Dior Airflash Spray Foundation

I started using this product over a week ago, and this is now my favorite foundation. It has a 4.4/5 star rating on Sephora. I simply spray this onto my face, and then blend it out with a beauty blender. It has a natural look to it, but is full coverage. It will also give your skin a little bit of glow which I personally like. Overall it makes applying foundation quick and easy, and again, it gives the most coverage without looking unnatural. The price is a little high: $62 but to me this is worth the price because of the quality in my opinion. I have personally noticed that most of the highest-rated foundations at Sephora often tend to be in the $40 to $85 dollar range. On the lower end of this price range, is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which I have personally yet to try, but also has a 4.4/5 star rating and a larger range of shades than the Dior Airflash. The highest rated foundation is the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick for $85. There are only two issues I see with the Dior Airflash Spray Foundation. One is that there are only 11 shades. The other is that two of these shades randomly come in a “matte finish,” while the rest come in a “natural finish.”

My Favorite Foundation

I currently have tried maybe twenty different foundations in the past two years, and I personally have to say that I am someone who likes full coverage, but without looking too “caked faced”. In my opinion, the Too Faced Born This Way foundation has given me the coverage that I have personally wanted. I currently use it with Guerlain’s L’or Radiance Primer, and I think that it looks very well compared to other foundations. Some foundations I have found to be too sheer for me, while some just look way too unnatural. I have tried other foundations that have oxidized too much, while I personally have not seen this happen with the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. This is my everyday go to foundation out of all the other foundations that I own. I personally would recommend it.
