NARS equivalents of popular MAC shades

05 Feb 2010

Hey guys! Looking for a new foundation and thinking about getting one by NARS? I got something really helpful for you today. 🙂

Remember the post I wrote two weeks about Temptalia’s genius foundation shade guide? Well, Aaron (Awoz on YouTube) created something similar. He found NARS equivalents of the popular MAC foundation shades! He’s a make up artist and he also works at a NARS counter in Vancouver that is located right next to a MAC counter.

While at work, he compared the NARS Sheer Glow foundation shades with MAC. In between customers he put a squirt of a NARS foundation on his hand, ran to the MAC counter and found the equivalent. Nice, huh?

His findings are below, but do check out his video on this!

Nars vs. MAC Cosmetics
SIBEREA – NC15
MONT BLANC – NW20
GOBI – NC37 OR NW25 SELECT SPF FOUNDATION
FIJI – NC25
CEYLAN- NC20
PUNJAB- NC20
SANTE FA – NW20
STROMBOLI – NC40
BARCELONA – NC42
SYRACUSE – NC42
TAHOE – NC44

MACAO- NC50
NEW ORLEANS – NW45

Hope this is helpful to some of my readers. 🙂
