Help! Foundation Matches for Color ID #4Y08

A month ago, I went into my local sephora to get matched using the Pantone Color ID system.  Unfortunately, only a few foundation matches were generated which included:  MUFE HD Foundation #153 and Sephora's new mattifying powder #32.  The MUFE was spot on; but I'm not a fan of the mattifying powder at all.


Given the Color ID #4Y08, are there any other brands that carry foundation that may come close to my pantone shade? Perhaps Nars Sheer Glow (I used "tahoe" previously but it is a tad bit too dark).

Just did a bit more research on the Color IQ system and found that you can now enter your ID# online.  The strange thing is:  MUFE HD Foundation doesn't even appear as one of the "matches".  I wonder why??

Hi qvmaria,


The shades that show up can be found here>


The recommended shade for you is "Stromboli" in the Nars Sheer Glow and I'd also suggest you try the MUFE HD in 153 Golden Honey which is also for medium skin with olive undertones and which you said you have already tried. I'm not sure why they are not included but I'll be to sure to forward this to the website team in case it is an error! Smiley Happy


Another match you should try is the Lorac Natural Performance in NP 5 which is "warm medium" and should also blend in nicely:


LORAC - Natural Performance Foundation
