Thanks for the update. I was afraid of oxidation, so that's good to know. Back to Sephora I go.....

Yes it's great for oily skin. Have to go back to Sephora for a different color though! I will make this work, my oily skin needs this, and it feels nice on!

OMG... so I'm in week 2 of it.. and I just love it. Now that I got the color to not look like Latoya Jackson... I'm loving it. I knew I would love it. Because I know immediately if I'm going to hate or a love a foundation. I cannot believe that it was Urban Decay... other than liners, glosses, and those Naked palettes... I usually don't even LOOK at any foundation/moisturizer base products from UD. They got a hit with this one. They need to make more colors though... for real. Chocolate girls need cool and warm tones too (.5"s)

I am a nc44 in mac select moisturecover concealor (it's what I like to wear for foundation since it matches me perfectly). I got samples of the UD skin in 7.0. 7.5. 8.0 and 9.0 the 7 and 7.5 were way too light. 7.5 looked okay with a darker powder though. The 8.0 was okay but looked a lil orange. I think the 9.0 looked best on me even though the 8.0 was really similar. It's a tiny dark but I love the way this stuff feels on my skin so hopefully I can find a way to make it work. Urban decay needs to add more .5 shades for woc.

I went back for a sample of 11.0, and may have found a winner. I don't see much of a difference between it and 10.0 though. I also bought the Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush. I think my 187 will be taking a seat for a while, this brush is great for foundations that dry quickly.

It's nice but I am not in love. Both 11 and 12 seem to work well for me, but not loving it.
post #37 of 73

I tried 10. Undertones are too pink.  I quit! LOL  I do want the brush though. 

post #38 of 73
Any NW 50's try this? Sounds like I should stick with matchmaster smiles.gif
post #39 of 73

I'm about NW50, I have shade 12.  I really like it.

post #40 of 73

I'm a SFF nw45 , matchmaster 7.5 and they tried 10 on me and it was too ashy. I tried 11 on and it looked fine in store (damn deceptive lighting lol) but when i got home and took photos of it- there was GHOST face killah LOL. When I'm back in the States I will try 12 and photograph it and sees if that one works. I kinda feel like if you're darker than nw45 this foundation might be too ashy for you...

I had the SAME issue. I'm matched perfectly with a 9 cause 10 has way too much red in it. But as soon as I took pictures ... Casper your friendly ghost. And I soooo wanted to love this foundation. Thinking if I finish it with a Nars loose powder or MUFE loose maybe the ghost look wouldn't show up in pictures.

this foundation is a bust for me.  7 and 7.5 were to light, and 8,9,10 had the wrong undertones.

I wondered if you were going to try it. I remember you saying your undertones do the same as mine.  Yellow in winter, and the red pops out in the summer.  We are golden red.

 

I'm not sure what UDecay was thinking about with this foundation. 

 

I am tripping that 7 was recommended by them based on my current shades.  I know I'm inbtwn colors b/c of my tan, but I can't believe NOTHING worked. LOL   I so appreciate Bobbi Brown foundation philosophy now.

post #45 of 73

I have this foundation and was matched with shade 8.0 from the website (it has you identify your shades in MAC, MUFE, etc and gives a number)

the only mac foundation I was is F&B I'm C6, MUFE HD 173 and 18 in F&B, NARS Cadiz and I have drier skin

 

when I swatched it, seemed too red for me. I have golden/yellow undertones but the first time I wore it, it was great! matched very well and lasted all day long

the second time I tried it...it seemed too light. I had to darken it a bit with my MSF.

there wasn't a huge gap in time between the first and second use so I don't think I'd gotten much of a tan...so I don't know what that was about.

 

I'm going to continue using it, I actually like it a lot. the coverage is just what I like, pretty light but covers what I need well.

Completely forgot that's how we work for some reason. What foundations do you like(I know you are lighter though)?

 

LOL I still haven't tried BB yet, I'm assuming 6.5 is my shade. I'll just stick with the trusty Revlon foundation in Caramel.

The love is gone....by the end of a week of wear, I had a terrible breakout. It was my first return ever, I felt bad. I had hoped to exchange for YSL Touché Éclat, but my shade wasn't in stock. I'm sure Sephora will get my money soon enough anyhow.

I'm sticking with Teint idole until my "winter skin" arrives.

As a color conversion chart been created anywhere?

post #49 of 73
I'm and nc45 and I went to a Macy's that sells UD, I immediately picked up a number 8 or something and it was sooo effing light on my skin. The counter manager instructed me that the point five shades will look too pink/red. I ended up putting on number 11 and it was perfect.
post #50 of 73

I really wanted this foundation to work for me I'm a C6 in Mac Sudio Fix powder the Sales associate at Ulta matched me to #8 but it looks grayish on my skin and #9 also didn't match. I think it doesn't have enough yellow to work with my skin tone.

I'm NC44 and they recently put #8 on me at a UD event.  NOT.  It was also grayish on me.  I agree, I think they seriously lack yellow undertones.  UD really needs to go back to the drawing board with these, at least with the darker shades.

post #52 of 73

I'm nw43 in mac as well try 11. I tried 9 to light liked ashy and 10 as well. Go for 11.

Im also a NW45 in the SFF and Powder so I bought 10 and 11 and both work fine. I noticed that in the summer Im more of a 11 and the winter a 10. sometimes I mix them.

Thank ya'll for giving me permission to pitch my foundation in #8. It was always off and now I know that cast was greyness. I knew it needed warming up, but couldn't put my finger on the issue. Kept thinking it was just me. Now I get to buy a new foundation from my current list!!!

I completely missed this. I was using bb 6 and sometimes 6.5.  Now I'm just doing concealer and msfn deep.  

post #57 of 73

Yes, I had to pull it out, I'm using dark.  But that might be too dark b/c when I went out with friends Tuesday, they thought I had on bronzer. 

 

This makes my skin oily though. I have to find a new combo.  Maybe I'll just go back to my bb long wear. 

post #60 of 73

tasneem2327 - I'm guessing 5 or 6, but it's always hard to say in photos. What shades do you wear in some other foundation brands?

 

PP I'm not really feeling my MSFN either. It does nothing for my skin.
