Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation match?
(0) Hearts

Hello. I am trying to pick a color on Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, but I do not seem to find the right shade.

I am light/medium skin (more on the lighter side though), and I have yellow undertone. I am a true MAC NC20 (so no pink undertone at all), and I have also used Bobbi Brown 2.5. 

I just want to know which shades are the true yellow based ones. I have tried the colors but I still need a second opinion. what are other people wearing? 


- Cream Ivory --> I find this true yellow undertone, but it is too light and pasty

- Beige Ivory --> I dont know why people keep recommending this one for NC20    yellow undertone. I found it to be neutral and has some pink undertones!!

- Medium Ivory --> I think this one could be a good match, but is it yellow undertone?

-Bamboo Beige --> nice colour but too dark (maybe good for NC30)


Could anyone tell me which ones have true yellow undertones??? Thanks!

I am NC20 you can look through my pictures to see if you have similar coloring to me. I have a sample of Beige Ivory and it seems to match fine (i think it is a teeny tiny bit dark on me but my husband LOVES it). I get compliments every time I wear it (I've worn it 3 times so far).

It is on my heart list no so much for the color (I dont think it is a true match) but for the formula. I really like the way this foundation feels & makes my skin look.


I actually wore it yesterday at a work function for my husband.

Hello!! Smiley Happy thank you for your answer. I saw a MUA friend this, and he took a look at my samples Smiley Happy. I had Cream Ivory, Beige Ivory, and Medium Ivory. He took a look at the undertones of the foundations and said that Cream and Medium ivory were definitely yellow based, but that Beige Ivory is a neutral tone (so better for someone who is in between yellow and pink Smiley Happy ).

Beige Ivory made me look dull and ashy because it did not blend well with my undertones Smiley Sad, so we set on Medium Ivory, which made me look refreshed Smiley Happy ). He also used Cream ivory for highlighting, which I found interesting!! (it looked very nice, I might think about getting both colours so I could contour different areas of my face! Smiley Happy )
