Which Revlon ColorStay for MUFE 117/MAC NC20

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I can't decide which Revlon Colorstay foundation to get. Revlon is not sold in Denmark, so I can't try it on.


My best match in foundation is definitely MUFE 117. I have strong yellow undertones. In Studio Fix Powder I am NC20 , in Studio Fix Fluid I am NC15. Maybe I am actually more NC 15 now that it's winter.


Based on Temptalias foundation Matrix I should get either Ivory or Buff. But I am sort of in between, so which one?


Any help is highly appreciated.

I am about a NC 20 and I wear 150 Buff and 180 Sand Beige. Sand Beige is better for me in the summer and I am wearing Buff now that I am a bit paler. I hope this helps some. And it's a great foundation by the way. Plus you can't beat the price of Colorstay for the quality.

I'm around an NC20 and for my winter color, I use 150 Buff and 180 Sand Beige for summer!  I haven't had any problems with it looking too orange or pink on my super pale-olive skin tone!

180 Sand Beige.

For reference, I am an NC20, with yellow or beige undertones.

I had been using MAC SFF and Revlon Colorstay for more than 5 years now.

Buff Beige is lighter on my skin.

I love the sand beige on winter, but I think I can get away with a medium beige during summertime.

Or you can mix both to create a wonderful combo.

Here is a color chart of Revlon Colorstay as compared to MAC SFF.

Hope it helps.    newhere.gif
