    So confused! MAC foundation

    Hello Everyone, I really need Mac foundation help. I don't normally wear foundation but sometimes I want my face to look extra flawless. So I recently went to a Mac counter and was advised that my color was NC55. After looking at the bottle it looked pretty dark for my tone but I figured that they're the experts so I went with it. I had her to apply it on half of my face and as the day progressed it seemed to get darker I asked others just for confirmation who agreed with me... Can someone please tell me what they think my shade is. Ps- I've read a lot of post on here and there seem to be a lot of people who were NC 45 that are obviously darker than me. I'll post pictures of myself in a brighter light, natural light, and darker light. Thanks in advance [/IMG

    Your skin looks flawless...although I'm a newbie, I had to comment on that.

    Sorry no one responded to you! An important thing to note is that MAC foundations vary in tone from formula to formula. There is slightly less variance in the darker shades, but sometimes it's there. I think you're closer to NW than NC, and I'd say you're about a 45-50.
    NARS SG Siberia(ish), RCC Chantilly/Vanilla(ish?); ABH Stick Foundation in Porcelain; circa NC10/NW13/NC15 in MAC intensity. Combination skin.
