Struggling To Find My Shade!

Is there anyone else with deeper skin tones having trouble finding a shade in Kat Von D Lock It foundation? I've been matched to 78N, 79W, and 80C at three different Sephoras. The first two were too light and it seems as if they wear the same (as in undertone...the "warm" looked pretty neutral to me) and the last one was way too dark for me.


I really love this formula...just can't find a shade! =(


Struggling To Find My Shade!

@JewlzRulz Do you have a foundation that matches you really well? If so, you can check against Sephora's IQ for close shade suggestions. KVD 79 & 80 must be new new, and you're right -- 79W shows IQ 1y14 while 78N shows 1y13, so both are fairly neutral. 80 says 4R14, which sounds red. So ... you may not have a match in KVD 😞 But if you play around with the IQ search (e.g.2y13, 2y14, 3y13, 3y14), you may find something else worth swatching!
