M Sammy says:

Sheer Glow was the first higher end (non-drugstore) foundation that I ever tried, and it was the first foundation that actually matched my yellow/golden undertone. I do have oily skin and Sheer Glow does slightly accentuate that, but I still love it. Although it does have silicone and my skin is sensitive, it, surprisingly, doesn’t break me out. I still reach for SG every day; it’s a classic and a must-try.

Naomi says:

For the price the fact that there is no pump is rediculous…

ajamesu says:

Looks good! I’d be curious to see you review the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint too.

Marianne Sagvolden says:

your skin is soo beautiful!

Makeup Junkie says:

Watching this while I am getting an oil change. There is now freezing sleet and I am not sure how I will make it home 🙂 Don’t feel bad about you skin changing that just gives you insight into other skin types.

Marlin Mathew says:

The first foundation I got and I love it sooo much…wish it lasted longer

TAZ Wise says:

Hi Samatha. . I love that you do these types of videos. Ppl do go though what is the best Foundation for oily skin, or for all types of skin. Your sk8n is changing due probably because of the wellness of your eating habits ,weight loss etc. It’s Great! Sooo we ladies do what we do and if your skin isn’t oily any more.. next normal to oily. .lol so don’t get crazy. .it’s absolutely a good thing. Your skin has been looking great!

psr076 says:

I can relate to your skin changing (not being oily). I recently my skin felt less oily and I wondering if it’s because I change my skincare routine. Now do I need to use less foundation…I’m trying to figure it out.

Marwah Abdelaal says:

One of my favorites, i only hate that it doesn’t come with a pump! Had to purchase it separately 🙁

Dee says:

trend mood says they’re expanding shade range to 40 this month around christmas 🙂 i am very excited, i love this foundation but never had a perfect match.

Allie Wainwright says:

It still looks really good and still looks natural in my opinon.

BrownFaceTV says:

This is one of my favs! I usually just buy the pump at NARS. It’s like $6. I must say I wasn’t impressed with Doublewear. It wasn’t matte at all and I’m not that oily. Also, Lancôme…was also a no. A lot of shades but I just can’t seem to find mine and that’s also not matte. Well, not on my skin.

Maliha Latif says:

I wear Syracuse even though I’m one shade darker than you. Would like it if Nars made another shade between Syracuse and Tahoe

Ishita Ojha says:

The same is happening to my skin – I’m chalking it up to getting older and the weather where I live because my skin does slightly drier in the winter anyways. This year, however, it’s WAY less oily and more combo (somedays even normal-ish). Slightly more convenient since it does allow me to try foundations that I couldn’t try before 🙂

Amy Sousa says:

This is my favourite foundation formula! It works so amazing on my dry skin, but I do bake my forehead when I wear this because it does become shiny after several hours in that area. My only issue with this is that I can’t find my perfect match with a yellow undertone (and really wish they’d extend the shade range) and the fact that it comes with no pump, yet they don’t have them at Sephora.

Joan Schaefer says:

Hi Sam. I’ve had oily skin all my life so I can understand where you’re coming from. I haven’t tried Nars GLO. I guess oily and glow don’t go together in my book. The foundation looks really nice. The big question is break through and can it look good ALL day.

Brittany Oberschlake says:

Their releasing new shades end of December. This is one of my all time favs wear it all the time!!

ambdance00 says:

It looked like you could have just worn this foundation, maybe a slight dust of powder, mascara, and lip gloss and head out the door for an errands makeup look lol. Looked so natural yet had pretty decent coverage. Lancome is still in the lead, but this might come in second or third? haha

Suzzette Williams says:

Great review thanks for sharing….

And She Read says:

I can’t remember if I said this in another video, but have you tried urban decay’s naked skin foundation? It’s my favorite! I think you’d love it, Sam!

Stephen Joseph says:

Girl, you’ll never not be helpful. You still have the benchmark of where your skin used to be so I think most of your viewers would still trust your opinion on wether or not a foundation would be good for oily skin.

Oh and the foundation isn’t meant to be be sheer or glowy. It’s meant to give your skin a “sheer glow.” It’s one of my faves on oily skin! Keep up the great work!

Banshee Muse says:

I have oily skin, and I have bought this foundation 2 times. It was a love hate with this foundation, but so many better formulas now.

TGBeauty says:

After your video, I tried a sample from Sephora. I had some issue with the foundation around my chin area. It kinda disappeared in a few hours though I didn’t see much transfer on my hands, etc. What I liked about it is how lightweight it was. It gave me light coverage but definitely evened out my skintone. I will try it with a setting powder and see how it goes!

Tangie Brown says:

These are the best!! Thank you

Angela Bakunas says:

Your skin is looking great!! Thank you for the review. I’ve always wanted to try Nars foundation.

TwinkieToes says:

This was my first high end foundation. My oily skin could not keep up with it, but I loved the finish.

Shyra B. says:

It’s ok that your skin isn’t as oily. It’s probably the time of year,. I’m also ridiculously oily during the spring/summer. But right now my skin is dry to normal, I even had to switch to thicker moisturizers and change my skin care routine.
