Color IQ comparison - reverse lookup?

(0) Hearts

I was able to locate the IQ chart, so I can see which shades are near my exact shade of 5Y04, but when I was at the store today, somehow the SA was able to look at individual shades of any given foundation to see what they are called.  How do I do that?

 

I'm looking at getting the Dolce&Gabbana creamy foundation (square package, not luminous), but I don't have an exact shade match and cannot recall the closest shade.  Suggestions?

I don't know how to reverse look-up what IQ matches foundations are either.  But you can go here http://www.sephora.com/color-iq?icid2=Foundation_ColorIQ_TopBnr_Image and put in codes close to yours.  Like you could put in 4Y04 and those matches would be just a little less yellow or 5Y03, 5y05 (lighter and darker). Then you'll know exactly how the match differs from your Color IQ match.

 

Natural Glow 100 is a 3Y05 (slightly less yellow and slightly darker).

 

I have to say, though, that I haven't found the color matches particularly accurate :-(
