Comparing Color IQ with drugstore foundation shades

(0) Hearts

I have always struggled to find my perfect shade of foundation. After using the Color IQ machine, I have found that my shade is 3Y10. Unfortunately, the recommendations for this shade are limited, pricey and incompatible with my oily skin. Does anybody else have this color? If so, what colors do you usually buy when using drugstore foundation brands?

Hi, Drolando1!  If you live near a Sephora, you could pick up samples of some of the liquid foundations.  Take them with you to the drugstore/Target/Walmart to compare them with the brands they sell to try to find a shade.

 

You could also try searching for a "dupe" on the Internet.  Click on the Sephora product to get the name of the color, then try a search such as "Benefit Oxygen Wow I'm a Glamber dupe."  One of the beauty blogs may come back showing which drugstore foundations and colors matches this color.

Temptalia has a foundation swatch spreadsheet if you know your MAC color.
