My store had it in stock on Sunday, as the Makeup Artist used it on me (parts of my face) over the MUFE foundation that he used.  I must say, it looked great.  The MUFE was 125, and he used Laura Mercier Smooth #3 over it.

 

I just ordered some sale things and picked up #4 (buff) so I'll see how it looks. 

 

I thought the colors looked good on me, at least with my current summer coloring, but I don't know that I wear foundation enough to justify buying both.

Oh that's strange that he matched you with such a light powder? my friend wears hd 117 and is #4 buff. i wear 120 and got #6 wheat

Just a note, i was in Sephora and noticed underneath the compacts they list if you were a shade in the foundation powder what you would be in the smooth line:

 

LM 2 = 4 LMS

LM 3 = 6 LMS 

LM 4 = 9 LMS

LM 6 = 9 LMS

 

from what i can tell , shade 6 and 9 are close, 9 is more yellow and 6 is more neutral. It seems like a lot of the shades are very forgiving.

Omg the compact is so **bleep** cute!. I got shade 4 and shade 6 (looks like a match). So now i think shade 4 will match my friend

Is there a way to find a shade match using the color IQ online?

Sephora is not making this easy on us. I started looking at this after seeing the promo code LMSMOOTH. [insert thanks to @rikkie for always being on top of these codes:smileyhappy:] Hopefully it's in my store soon to swatch!

Aargh, I am too light for any of the samples and on my screen the lightest colors look kind of orange, so I will have to look in person before I can consider them. I hope you can use the code though! Jealoussss. :smileywink:

i was going to order tomorrow so i definitely will use the code,  i could probably try the first 2 but theres no undertone descriptions so i have no way of knowing.
