I had a gift card to Sephora so I decided to pick up my favorite foundation. I haven’t had a bottle in months because $42 for me is a lot to shovel out for a daily use foundation. Now that I’m not using as much self tanner as I was, I’ve been using a lot of foundations that are in the NC30-NC35 range rather than NC40. Previously I was using the shade Barcelona in Sheer Glow.. which was the absolute perfect NC40 match. It matched my skintone even better than MAC NC40 did. But this time, I picked one shade lighter.. and that is Stromboli. This shade is the dead on perfect match for me right now. I can’t believe how perfect the color match NARS Sheer Glow offers for my skin tone.
I did a few comparisons for you guys.. Since I’m on vacation, I didn’t have all of my foundations with me. Just MAC Studio Fix Fluid and Make Up Forever HD. I’m sure Estee Lauder Double Wear in the shade Tawny may come close to these as well.
MAC and MUFE look almost exactly the same. Nars is the slightest more yellow.. and looks the best on me of the three. (I actually think I did a typo.. it may be mufe #125.. the label has rubbed off!)
