NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Barcelona Demo/Review

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation retails for $45 USD ($58 CAD) and comes in 20 shades. Here's a review of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, which I've talked about so many times in the past but I was never happy with the previous shade Stromboli. However, recently I got Barcelona and I love it!! 
It comes in a glass bottle and contains 1 fl oz (30 mL) of product. The only downside is that it doesn't come with a pump.

There are 20 shades to choose from and I had Stromboli but it was much lighter. However, Barcelona is a great match. 
Shade ReferenceI don't own any MAC foundation but I should be around NC40-NC42 in MAC. 
Here are some of the foundations that match me well:

  • Finish: Semi-Matte
  • Coverage: Medium 
  • Wear time: I tested it out for about 5.5 hours and it looks pretty good. I have oily t-zone and it gets oily throughout the day but it's less oily if I use a setting powder.
Application: I decided to apply it with a beauty blender and Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Primer on one side and Sigma 3DHD Kabuki Brush on the other side. Also, I have combination skin and I have an oily T-zone, so whenever I wear this foundation, I do have to set it properly.   
    • Longwearing 
    • Lightweight
    • Photographs well   
    • Great Coverage 
    Left side: With foundation
    Right Side: Without foundation
    • Clings on dry patches: It does slightly cling on my dry patches especially when I apply it with a brush but it's not that noticeable on camera.
