I've always wanted to try out Sheer Glow, but never got samples. I hear that the matte version is very very matte and drying and the Sheer Glow version works on oily types as well.
I don't know if that helps but my friend with oily skin does really like Sheer Glow and her face looks great even without powdering when she uses it. Okay, now I really don't know which one to get xD hahah thanks for letting me know though, Hao. I have been using a matte primer lately and I love how it keeps my face oil free all day, so I just assume matte foundations are as good. Oh wow, that's freaking awesome that you managed to get samples!
It's just so uncommon in singapore for people to give or ask for samples even at the high end counters or stores! We have such a strong culture of snobbery at make up counters here that I much rather just swatch the shades myself in person and judge from there but I would LOVE to get samples to try! I've heard so much about both the sheer glow and sheer matte but even the girls with oilier skin go with the sheer glow! I say go for it and bite the bullet!
I think maybe search to see if there's anyone who maybe owns both? Or if oilier skin girls really find the sheer matte lasting on their skin? But I swear I've heard people say that they prefer the sheer glow! Hahahah I would never ask for samples at the counter, I can't stand the whole having people look me up and down and wondering if I can afford a highend product or not lol!
As I have slightly dry skin — mainly where I have bouts of acne and scarring — I added a tiny bit of moisturiser just to those areas. I did not wear a primer here either, just because I have run out, but if I were to wear this on a night out or for a prolonged period of time then I would be much keener to, as with any other foundation.
I used my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply this, although the lovely lady in the shop used a flat foundation brush and too had a beautiful finish to the skin. I was matched to Fiji which has yellow-undertones and is a medium-toned colour.
Tue, 23 Oct at PM. Nearly there! Shell Says: februari 4, at pm. Hi Huda!! I found out your blog!
I applied a blob of the product to the back of my hand and begun to apply it on the lower of my face, as usual, with circular motions. As the product began to dry on my skin, I used the flat of the brush to stipple over the foundation. This really enhanced the finish and removed any unsightly lines from the circular motions. As always, I applied a lighter concealer under my eyes and around my mouth where I suffer from dark pigmentation. Here, I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Light 1 to somewhat recreate that Kardashian-esque highlight and contour.
Thanks for sharing all your color matches. Love your YT videos!
My skin tone and type is very much like yours. Have you, or are you planning to try the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour foundation?
I have it here now. A million thank yousssss!! I have been searching high and low for a page like this that would break down all the matches in all the different brands.
Thank you soooo much!! I asked myself what I was looking for when I was searching for matches in the past and this was pretty much it. I, like you, could never find an all-encompassing list! Yesss our skin tone is a bit off. Not too light and not tan. It can be a headache searching for the right shade.
I either look like a ghost or like my face was the only thing that went into a tanning bed. Thanks for taking the time to do this for us!! W3 is my shade most of the year. I have W4 too for the dead of summer. Please try the Fenty Beauty Foundation!! Why have I not seen your blog before?
Would have saved me so much effort! Awesome suggestions! I hope so!! Do you know when it will be available? Hi and welcome! Thanks so much Alison! Hey Stephanie please try Huda foundation and find the match for Nars foundation,shade Punjab. I have heard it has wonderful coverage. But I may look into it with the VIB sale! OMG how have I only come across your bloggs now!
This has helped me so much.
We match in so many foundations. I was hoping you could maybe find a match for the fenty beauty foundation as I tried but it was waaay too dark xxx. Thanks so much! Glad to have you here! I may look into it with the upcoming fall Sephora sale though! Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
