Nars Sheer Glow Punjab Review and Swatch
Now, I know there are heaps of reviews of this product but I just had to rave about it too as it's my favourite foundation ever! This had been on my wishlist for the longest time so me being tight the Bargain Queen that I am, I treated myself to this when Asos had their black Friday offer (that's how long its taken me to decide whether to review this or not!) so I got it for the amazing price of just £24.80 instead of it being £31.00. After reading review after review I settled on the shade 'Punjab' which is described as 'Medium with golden, peachy undertones' Now I don't know about you but I've always been one to have a high street foundation for everyday and a more high-end foundation for when I'm dolling myself up, tanned and want to feel ultra glam. You're now probably wondering whether or not this foundation is too dark for me and it is on an everyday basis but for nights out it matches my tan perfectly, I like to call this my special occasion foundation!

I love the ultra chic glass bottle it comes in with the Nars logo down the side and like most the only negative I have of this product is that it doesn't come with a pump. There is one you can buy for an extra £3.00 but when you've already splurged you don't really want to part with more money for something that should have come with such a high-end product anyway. The coverage, application and overall finish of this is bloomin' amazing! When you read the name you instantly assume that this is going to be very sheer with a dewy finish which in my opinion is the complete opposite to what is actually is. This is a medium coverage which is definitely buildable to full and it isn't overly dewy nor matte it's just the perfect in-between. I apply this with my Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush which blends like a dream leaving you looking flawless and radiant. Of all the times I've used this foundation I've not once looked cakey or like I've got too much foundation on, so even though it is medium coverage it still looks like your skin but very natural and hell of a lot better! It feels like you aren't wearing anything at all and has such a beautiful satin feel to it afterwards. A little goes such a long way with this product too as all you need is a smidge so even though it may seem more on the pricey side it will last you ages. This lasts all day. When I went to Barcelona I was up at 5am, had the oh so lovely air-con flight (which lets face it is never good for your skin or full face of make up!) arrived in the boiling heat, went out exploring, had dinner and it was still on there!!! Even the flight alone I'm surprised and really chuffed at, as L'Oreal True Match literally just slides off your mush no matter how long or short your flight, let alone everything else too! I honestly think this would be amazing for all skin types as it doesn't cling to dry patches nor make you look ultra oily and the range of colours are unbelievable! 

As you can most probably tell I love love love this foundation! It's easily become a Holy Grail item and is a staple in my make up bag! As always I'd love to hear your thoughts, have you tried this before? What's your favourite foundation?
