    It is also the differences in undertones that makes shades look lighter or darker, especially when swatched on non-matching skins.

    Which one did you end up with?

    I got the concealer in NC25 and tried on the foundation in NC18. It did look orangey as it was mentioned. I did not want to rush with the foundation (I have another shade in use). I think I have to try other shades on to find the perfect one.

    I had ordered it, so I'm stuck with it; it looks almost white on me. But I've been mixing it with Studio Fix foundation in NW20 which is too pink on me and it has made a decent neutral foundation.

    I ended up ordering the concealer when it was 20% off. After my first impression I have to say the formula is not for me, unfortunately. Too thick and dry for dry and/or aging skin IMO. Also, it seems to oxidize, because I noticed the swatch on the back of my hand was still there after quite a while but looked darker compared to when I first applied it.

    I wish they had the Moisturecover Concealer in NW10. Does anyone know of a dry skin friendly concealer in a similar shade?
    NW10-15
