Project Pan 12 Collab, Week 5 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the fifth of twelve items in my Project Pan Collab with Ingrid from CurlySpringBlossom, and Stashy from Stash Matters, and Chanelle from ChanelleHayleyyy!

Basically, the Project Pan 12 goal is to use up (or at least make a good attempt to use up) twelve products over the course of twelve weeks, and to review one of the products each week. After the product review, I’ll give a very short comment on the remaining eleven products just to account for whether or not I’ve been successful in using each of the products.

Onto the review!

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc

I purchased and reviewed this foundation nearly a year ago. (Original review is here) Here’s what it says on the Nars website about Sheer Glow:

A glowing, natural radiant finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage that immaculately evens skin tone. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, it leaves skin hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves the skin’s brightness and texture.

Project Pan 12 - Nars Sheer Glow

When the Project Pan first started, the weather was still summery, so I didn’t get much use from this foundation. But now that the weather is starting to cool down, I’ve been able to wear it a few times each week. I’m not yet winter pale, so I’ve been mixing in a little bit of my IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in shade Light to make it work. I’ve also been mixing in a few drops of the Nyx Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator. Despite using this foundation several times over the past few weeks, it looks as if I haven’t made a dent in using it up!

This foundation works well for my skin and it doesn’t make my skin feel like it is suffocating.  The coverage is sheer but buildable. My complaint from the original review still stands – why doesn’t this foundation come with a pump? It boggles my mind that you have to buy the pump separately, and most places don’t even sell the pump!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for ages. This or the All Day Luminous Weightless one. How annoying you have to buy a separate pump – surely the price of this product covers the $0.25 wholesale cost for a pump? I’m in the same boat with the Project Pan foundation that I’m using – it’s more suited for winter time so I have to mix it too.

  2. Not having a pump or a nozzle to control how much product comes out would be a bit annoying. If the product was amazing though, that would definitely make up for it! This foundation does sound lovely, I can see why so many people love it and class it as a favourite! 🙂

  3. I too had been planing on buying this foundation for sometime now!! Thank you so much for the review 🙂 I kinda like the ones without pump lol, somehow I can’t control how much comes out with a single squeeze!! I just use it directly from the bottle with a thin brush and apply it on my face with the blender 🙂
