Ok ... So I'm a lil on the fence and am also needing someone to sound off on this. I'm an NC45 in MAC and got shade #8. I'm not too sure on the color since it seemed to be more of the yellow undertone I needed but also thought it kinda looked ashy in spots. However the #9 I thought was a touch more red than I liked. So am totally on the fence with color. I will have to go back and test out the #9 again to be triple sure.
I rubbed it in with my fingers and it is definitely lightweight and very much skin like. But just like you fabulosity I'll try them both again tomorrow.
