Beauty Confessions: So...I have a dilema

You hear it here first. I have a dilemma…seriously I’m bringing up the famous Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and this time it’s definitely for a good reason.

Word on the blogroll and on the tube we have a dupe! If you couldn’t tell by the above image the Nars Sheer Glow dupe is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation.

Let’s go back a few weeks.

I thought the Nars Sheer Glow was breaking me out... come to find out it’s not the Nars Sheer Glow...ouch! I know. Maybe someone put a teenage spell on me?:/ I've been drink loads of water and green tea only..what's is up with that????

So, where’s the dilemma you might ask? Welp! Since the Nars Sheer Glow didn’t break me out and did a great job the first time around I was thinking about going to pick a shade or two up again, but since we now have a drugstore dupe I was thinking about picking that up (even though I know the undertones with drugstores varies and definitely worries me sometime (insert worried face)..

Anywho, I’ve tried the Neutrogena line before and had great results and because of that I was looking to repurchase the Healthy Skin Glow Sheers Natural Radiant Look (SPF 30), but now tempting to go the other way.

*****Not really sure about the undertone in this, because Lisa who was reviewing this foundation mention that this foundation has a less yellow undertone…so will see...if $12 went to waste.

************This foundation is definitely warm undertone friendly I know for a fact, because my skin and many other shades find this line to work with them. fyi: I realize that it wasn’t this product that broke my face out.
