I'd say now I'm about NC20 or Nars Deauville, so if anyone has any shade recommendations, I'm all ears.

So Katred, do you think a mix of 1.0 and 2.0 will match to NW15-20?  I usually get a winter and a summer "shade" and mix accordingly...it works for Matchmaster at least

I love the foundation, and also the optical blurring brush. I'm going to get another one so I don't ave to wash mine as often

I purchased this foundation in 8 and it's a little ashy - especially on the lower half of my face/jaw. I know it won't work in the Summer so I just ordered the 9. #9 is a little better, but still slightly ashy and a bit red. I have oily skin so I'm happy with the demi-matte finish and it doesn't feel drying on me. The finish helps make it more natural looking. I haven't noticed much of a problem with oxidization in #8. With #9 it's hard to tell because it's already kind of red and then my Ben Nye finishing powder pulls orange. It's possible this combo will be perfect with a slight tan. The other night I put each of the foundations on a different half of my face and didn't really notice a difference. Same thing happened in Ulta when I tried this. Still trying to make this foundation work because I really struggle with finding something that works. Now the Optical Blurring Blush...

 

 

That brush works amazingly well. I plan to gift one to my daughter and buy a 2nd for myself so I don't have down time when washing. Soft, dense bristles that give a soft focus effect. Works with powder, too. Less mess than the BeautyBlender. Doesn't suck up your product like natural hair brushes or sponges. Can stipple and buff or just buff. I returned my CoverFX foundation brush and may give my BeautyBlender to my daughter if I don't give her the UD brush first.

Would love to try this, but I'm not sure I like that there is no in-between shade between the 0.5 and the 3.5. A 1.5 or 2.5 I would love to try. Warm shades tend to clash rather obviosuly with my face.

I want to try this foundation, hopefully I like it as much as my favorite F&B

post #37 of 42

I tried it, but still prefer F&B.  F&B is absolutely my favorite and this foundation just made my look ashy and not "dewy/glow" like the F&B.

I love Naked Skin Foundation. Its medium coverage, thin feel, no oxidize/melting on my xtreme oily skin. I'm NC25-30 and I use shade 4.0. Perfect macth!! eyelove.gifheart.gif

I am not sure about NW but I am NC15-20 and I got a sample of the 2.0 and 3.0 The 2.0 was a great summer match.

Apologize for the bump but I just have to say...

BB Alabaster and Missha Perfect Cover #13 are both a bit too light for me at the moment (what can I say - I'm practically a Bronzed Goddess now!). But Naked Skin 0.5 is almost perfect. It's a bit pinker than I'd like, but still damn near perfect with a bit of setting powder. Medium coverage on me too, and it's the longest lasting of my stash apart from Revlon CS Whipped. But still looks a heck of a lot more natural than the CS Whipped. I'm still test driving it, but wore it last night to a party, today to a barbecque. I'll have to see how it works for a full day of work tomorrow! And in photographs.

I like it on normal , combo and oily skin, but it is not for dry. It can enhance dryness. Nice medium coverage and looks natural.
