Nars Sheer Glow Vs Natural Radiant Review

Hello there, darlings!

In today’s post, we’ll be comparing the Nars Sheer Glow foundation to the Nars Natural Radiant foundation.

I’m in the market for a new foundation, and I prefer high-end foundations; however, I’m really selective when it comes to foundations, and I don’t want to squander money that I don’t have by purchasing a large number of them.

So every time I go to Sephora, I ask for a few samples so that I can test them out on my face before purchasing them because, unfortunately, in Italy, makeup cannot be exchanged or returned.

The Dior Forever Undercover Foundation was the last product I tested, and it did not work for my skin type.

Due to the fact that I am a huge admirer of Nars, I chose to try the Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and compare it to the Sheer Glow foundation.

The first one was just released, whilst the other is a cult product, but this is the first time I’ve tried them both at the same time.

Whenever I say that I’m particular about my foundation, it means that I like a matte finish and SHEER coverage, both of which are nearly tough to find.

I can count the number of foundations I use on one hand.

I can confidently state that one of these won the battle and that I will be purchasing the full size.

Nars sheer glow Review

The Sheer glow skin care product gives you a smooth texture while leaving your skin bright throughout the day.

End product

Nars’ sheer glow gives you glowing skin.

It feels light and does not melt off your clothing.

Its color ranges are built to suit different color preferences.

Stromboli and Olive colors suited my skin well.

Sheer glow doesn’t feel heavy though may leave you very shiny.

Use some powder to keep your skin less shiny.

It can be built to full coverage.

Lasting power

This product lasted on my skin for up to 10 hours.

It does not come off easily.

I loved its consistency and the fact that it suits well with normal to dry skin.

It did not disappoint on my dry skin.

Covers Skin Blemishes

You could use a beauty blender or fingers for application, depending on what works for you.

No need to worry about your skin blemishes with this foundation. Covers acne and dry pores well.

THE REVIEW:

I used a wet sponge to apply it, followed by NYX Angel Veil Primer underneath and finishing with powder on top.

I’m wearing the shade Deauville, which is a little too bright for my taste.

I liked the finish at the beginning of the day because it’s natural and appears like skin; it sets quickly and isn’t sticky; nevertheless, it’s not especially matt.

On top of it, concealer and powders perform admirably.

When I took the makeup off after 2 hours, I had to blot away the extra oil, which is quite usual for me.

Throughout the day, the foundation rubbed off my skin and left a few little patches of skin showing through.

The product had sunk into my pores and was shiny and spotty after 8 hours of usage, and it was 60 percent gone.

On the whole, I’m not a huge lover of this foundation; it’s a little too thick coverage for my liking, but it appears to be quite natural on the face when applied.

It seemed to be fine at first, but as the day progressed, my natural oils began to seep out and cause it to fall apart.

I can assure you that it does not last 16 hours and that it is not transfer-proof.

The color is a little too yellow for my taste, but I’ve noticed that most of the colors in this collection have a strong yellow undertone to them.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Smooth luminous finish
  • Long-lasting
  • Hydrating

Cons

  • Expensive
  • No application pump

Natural radiant Review

Natural radiant comes with skincare products that are nourishing for your skin.

Contains extracts from watermelon and raspberry that smoothens and makes your skin radiant.

Lasting power

I wouldn’t give it a thumbs up for long-lasting power.

It did not set up properly on my face and was truly disappointed with it.

It separates quite first. However, I tried using a damp beauty blender and it was able to last on my skin for a while.

End product

The coverage is great with a smooth texture on your skin.

The look on your skin is natural and untraceable. If you are looking for full coverage I would suggest you try out this product.

Has a range of colors such as Patagonia and Montblanc.

Use a beauty blender or fingers for application.

Skin blemishes

I have some skin pores on my face. Natural radiant covers them pretty well.

Covers your acne too.

Except for the fact that it settled on my smile lines, your skin blemishes are taken care of.

My Detailed Review

  • Natural sheen is applied to the finished product.
  • Medium/Buildable coverage is provided.
  • Lasting 12 hours of continuous use
  • The product claims to provide sheer, buildable coverage with a natural, luminous finish.
  • Shades of gray: 20
  • Price: 47 dollars
  • It may be purchased at Sephora and Nars.
  • In addition, the following information is provided: Non-Comedogenic | Dermatologically tested | Free of Parabens, Alcohol, and Fragrance.

THE REVIEW:

I used a wet sponge to apply it, followed by NYX Angel Veil Primer underneath and finishing with powder on top.

I have the Deauville hue, which is a wonderful match for my skin tone.

My favorite thing about it is the finish; it’s not at all glowy; in fact, I believe it’s more satin/matt.

It’s natural and looks like skin, it sets without being sticky, and it provides good light/medium coverage. On top of it, concealer and powders perform admirably.

When I took the makeup off after 2 hours, I had to blot away the extra oil, which is quite usual for me.

Throughout the day, it became a little oilier, but nothing out of the ordinary for me.

The coverage was excellent, and it evened out my complexion without looking like a foundation, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

After 8 hours of wear, it was 60 percent gone, yet it didn’t seep into my pores, and it appeared shiny but not uneven.

This is the one for me!

I appreciate the coverage and the matte/satin texture of this product.

Despite the fact that I received the same shade, this one was not as yellow and therefore fit me nicely.

The only thing I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t last as long and that it gets a little oily, but I can definitely get around that by blotting it as I do with every other foundation.

It’s quite appealing to me. I’m definitely going to get a big size.

Pros

  • Contain rich extracts for smooth skin
  • Lightweight
  • Different shades

Cons

  • Doesn’t set well on the skin
  • Clogs pores

Verdict

Nars sheer glow turns out to be my favorite of these two. Even though expensive and you have to buy a separate pump applicator, it’s long-lasting and leaves you hydrated.

Natural radiant doesn’t sit well on the skin and that is a no for me.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which is preferable: Nars Sheer Glow or natural radiant skin tone?

Overall, the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is very similar to the Sheer Glow in terms of quality and application – and that includes the price.

The main difference is that it has a greater area of coverage.

If I am extremely dry during the day, Sheer Glow will draw attention to those places even more than they were when first used.

This is not the case with the new formula.

Is Nars Sheer Glow resistant to transfer?

No, it does not have a 16-hour wear time and it is not transfer-resistant.

The color is a little too yellow for my taste, but I’ve noticed that most of the colors in this collection have a strong yellow undertone to them.

Do you have dry skin and do you use Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation?

You should always make sure that your skin is fully exfoliated and hydrated before applying anything to it if you have dry skin like mine.

Yes, I agree that it leaves a radiant finish; but, I think it would have been more forgiving on my dry skin if it had been a little more dewy-looking, like Sheer Glow, or something like that.
