"it provides really decent coverage for a tinted moisturiser and it's buildable, i applied one layer with my fingers then used a foundation brush on my red cheeks and acne scars and it really covers surprisingly well for a tinted moisturiser (though not full coverage, you would still need concealer for really pronounced scars/redness)"
- Sephora User
"my skin is definitely more even-looking and i am almost positive it has reduced my breakouts"

Longlasting, lightweight, hydrating
As a makeup artist I have tried many different foundations. This is by far my favorite. I wear it everyday and love using it for brides who want a light coverage and some redness reduction. I feel like it covers blemishes well but you can still see my freckles through it.

Not good for sensitive skin, causes flare ups, drying
Firstly, I've never written a bad review, ever. Usually I just return/throw out and am on my way. I love sheer glow and thought this would be similar and I would love it. Unfortunately this is everything I hate in one product. It has no color correction (I was expecting it to have no coverage, and it doesn't), made me break out, was itchy, and is SO greasy and shiny. Even after I first put it on, before it starts slipping off my face, it looks shiny as if it were oily and I'd been wearing it for 10 hours. Believe me, I'm all for luminous and dewy, I hate matte--but this is straight up greasy. Nothing "radiant" about it. And I have dry skin! So confusing. Everyone else seems to love it, but I can't imagine how. Honestly this is worse than any drugstore tinted moisturizer I've ever tried. This is honestly garbage, I gave it a week with a different method and combo of other products each day but I'm never putting this on my face again! I would return it, but I always feel guilty doing returns, although I hate to throw $43 in the trash can. Please get a sample before buying, I wish I hadn't just believed the inexplicably good reviews.

Natural, heavy, brightening
Skin type: oily t-zone/mostly normal everywhere else, acne-prone but mostly clear skin, yellow undertone (Bare Mineral Light, Lancome Miracle Teint 7W) Thank you NARS! This product is a time saver! With a fairly high UVA/UVB protection of SPF30 Pa+++, I've been able to compress my sunscreen and light coverage foundation steps. If you want to use a higher spf, this will layer perfectly fine on top. The consistency and wear is similar to a very light cream and is easiest to apply with fingers. If you get oily in the T-zone like me, dusting a bit of powder over the T-zone seems to work or use a oil control primer underneath. I love how the finish is fresh and natural. It's my skin but better! Be aware that the product is a bit -cone heavy. Thankfully, I did not break out with use. There is a slight citrusy scent noticeable only during application. Color: I could never get a color match with Laura Mercier's TM (nude was too ashy/pale and next color up was too dark) so it was great that the 2nd lightest (Alaska) matched perfectly. Coverage is light and evened out the redness from my skin. If you need heavier coverage, this is not for you. The TM is slightly buildable, but a concealer will be needed for darker blemishes. Color oxidation is minimal. Wear time: When I had a small flaky patch of skin, the TM did catch during application and settled a tiny bit. I used a smaller brush to blend it out. Generally, the TM lasted a full work day. I blotted occasionally, but I never hit the "shining oil spill red alert" stage. At the extreme, I was just dewy, and that's a big pro for me as products claiming "radiance" and "skin lit from within" tend to cross into OPEC nation very quickly for my oily T. If you blot a lot, you may need to touch up a bit. Also, I did not find the TM sinking into my pores or caking at the end of the day. Moisture/Hyperpigmentation reduction: While I use the Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel underneath because it's still dry and cold, my skin did not feel as dehydrated at the end of the day compared to when I was using my sunscreen & water-based foundation regimen. I can't really comment about the hyperpigmentation reductions as the Boscia moisturizer also has the same effect. Cost: $42, Reasonable considering you're getting a decently rated sunscreen, light moisturizer, and light coverage "foundation" in one.
