Um, Can I say that I lurve the shade range of the Nars Balanced and Oil-Free foundation?
I do, I do!
With MAC, I'm roughly NW43/45, Face and Body Foundation N8/N9. With Nars, the shades are not just on a Neutral, Warm and Cool scale but factors in light, medium and dark brown tones plus the foundation names help with how they coordinate with your skin, hence Trinidad would be a shade similar to the peoples of origin.
After a Sephora.com order before checking the store ( I assumed they wouldn't have it.. but was pleasantly surprised). My shade is Benares and it is fantastic! I've been using it for roughly a week and the Balanced foundation gives me a dewy glow without the horrific greasies.
I ordered New Guinea which will be great for the wintery months.
I encourage the darker skin mamas to check out these shades and tell me what you think.
