What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

[ Edited ]

Despite the Color IQ, which has helped tremendously, I (and many others) still find it slightly difficult to really get a good color selection sometimes. The Color IQ probably doesn't take into account the fact that some of us are in between foundation shades nor the fact that foundations simply oxidize sometimes.

 

I thought I'd make a list of foundations and powders that I have used and sampled that have matched me fairly well. I'll continue to update this list alphabetically if you, BTers, who have the same skin tone as I do come up with more shades from other lines, because I can only try and use so many foundations (and some brands are just difficult to access.)

 

In MAC terms, I'm between NC25-NC30. NC27 if such a thing existed :smileyhappy:

I'm a perfect match for the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation in Light Medium Sand but find it so difficult to find any other foundations with an appropriate yellow undertone. Any suggestions?

@carito1990 try #53! I found it to be a near perfect match

Im 2y07 but the lady at sephora recommended the medium 54 for my kat von D foundation. I feel it does match but sometime I get the hint of a little bit too red for my skin. :smileysad:

Are you talking about L'oreal Lumi? I haven't tried it, but I think if you're in the NC25-30 range, W3 will work for you.

I'm the same shade!! 2Y07. Thanks for this list!!! So helpful! :smileywink:

Woo hoo! 2Y07's unite! :smileyvery-happy:

What did you think of Guerlain's BB cream? I was thinking about ordering it next week and I'm hoping it will be worth the price!

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

It looked beautiful within the first 2-3 hours of having it on, but after the 4th hour mark, I looked like a grease ball. I think if you have dry/normal skin, it would hold up longer though :smileyhappy:

Interesting - I was matched to a 5.75 for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk...

I wish Sephora had GA on line. I've heard so many good things about their foundations.

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

I'm really new to the GA brand and got a full face done at Neiman Marcus - the products are really nice.  I will probably try maestro next.  I got a sample of the maestro concealer - haven't tried it yet.  I'm still looking for the HG of concealers for my dark circles.

Have you gotten into the Eyes to Kill eyeshadow yet? Once you get one, you will somehow end up wanting more! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

The Maestro is one of the most unique foundations in the market, I think. Also, the new YSL serum foundation is worth picking a sample up and trying :smileyhappy:

beautylovingirl

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

Gosh I love you! The Maestro is the one I have heard so much about but there's no where close for me to get a sample. Is the YSL foundation good for oily skin?? I was just thinking of it being a serum and most of the time it provides hydration. I got the email from YSL but didn't pay much attention to it, besides I love my Dior so much I'm not really looking to change anytime soon.:smileyhappy:

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

I love how Dior foundations look on! I'm just very sensitive to the scent in the foundations.:smileysad: The new YSL serum is decent for oily skin. It lasted about 5-6 hours before I needed to blot. But it's definitely better than the Touche Eclat foundation :smileyhappy:

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

Oh wow thank you! I'm the same match as you! Which foundation would you recommend for a natural finish? 

poshified

Re: What's your liquid/BB/CC/powder foundation shades?: 2Y07 edition :)

You're welcome, lady! I love Chanel's Vitalumiere (but the scent can be a little overpowering), the Guerlain Parure de Lumiere (smells like the mascara!), and the NARS sheer glow :smileyhappy:
