    Most seem like huge fans...
    I agree the shades looked dark... matching a shade is the hardest thing, so tricky

    YES!! In so many videos it's too dark and often too yellow as well. I'm so picky about making sure I get a really good match, and I wonder how they settled on those obviously wrong shades.

    that blonde woman she is really fair i would say 2 would be perfect for her (7 years of matching women with their foundation shade ) but she chose shade 6.

    no 2 is more yellow 3 is more pink (not darker just different undertone)

    I think our skin tone is similar and I am wondering this too. I am sort of shocked at the lighter shades--this is hard. I might get 2. Or maybe 3.5. Or maybe I'll wait two weeks and look for testers.

    I was at Neiman's this morning and the testers weren't in stock yet. I left my phone number. Given how long returns/exchanges take I'm thinking that I should wait. But it's so hard to be patient!

    I don't know--they say Nordstrom Exclusive and at least some of the shades are not on Armani's site (milano etc). Also, noticed a new Tom Ford blush shades up too (Disclosure-- also backordered)

    .
    Yes, I thought that was odd on the TF blush unless it sold out that fast. I did a google search & it said the lipsticks are all new, but no swatches. I wondered about the Nordstrom "exclusive"

    It is odd, but surprisingly they sold out immediately at Holt Renfrew in Canada too (other than Sephora I think HR is the only place to buy TF online).

    Hey! I tested the new foundation today & it is so lovely. 3 was the perfect match for me. I was a little scared at how light it seemed, but when I blended it out it was perfection. I swatched 3.5 for you guys & it is a bit darker & more yellow based than 3. It feels amazing on the skin.

    No it didn't seem dry to me. It really wasn't luminous either.
