A new favourite base duo: NARS Sheer Glow & L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer

Writing the post on my favourite 5 foundations helped me find some old classics which although were once fiercely loved now lay abandoned for a shiner newer formula. This is what happened to my NARS Sheer Glow. It was the first high end foundation I ever bought and although used solidly for over a year I always  felt that although a beautiful product it never quite lived up to its name and hype. The formula is neither sheer nor particularly glowing, instead you are left with a lovely subtle radiance and a medium to full coverage. 

I love Hannah Maggs and she always raves about the NARS Copacabana Illuminator which she mixes into her foundations to leave her skin looking so beautifully radiant. I decided to mix Sheer Glow with my L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer, which can also be doubled as a highlighter, to try and achieve the same result. I absolutely adored the finish, it thinned out the foundation and added a real luminosity to my complexion. I have been reaching for this most days now and absolutely love the way it looks. 

What products do you mix? 



  1. lovely post!! :) I think I might have to try out a similar combo to this with my foundation! XOXO

  2. What a great idea! I keep meaning to have a look at the L'Oreal when I am in Boots, I've heard lots of raves! x

    1. Definitely pick it up as it is such a lovely product. X
