Yes, MUFE HD is more forgiving. In MAC I'm an NC35-40 and my prefect color match in HD is 123. 127 is too bronzey and 128 is too beige. 123 is perfect for me
I'm nc35 in mac studio fix and bought the HD in 128 and find it to be a bit too tan. I also has 120 which is light also also 130 which is a bit on the pink side. Do u think I can mix the 128 and 120 to bring down the colour? Help. I don't have a sephora near me and rely on posts and color suggestions form sephora and MUF online. Any suggestions????

I'm NW50 and wear/wore the HD foundation in 185. There's no exact match given in the initial chart.

Bumping this as I now have a match in mat velvet as well. I was matched to #35 (Vanilla), it matches perfectly and I love the finish of this foundation. I'm in between NW25 and 30 in sff and NW25 in sculpt. So I think I've got all my MUFE shades covered now, lol! I love their foundations! MUFE HD: 118 (flesh) MUFE F&B: #32 MUFE Duo Matte: 205 MUFE Mat Velvet: #35 (vanilla) Hope that helped someone
These are my perfect matches as well! This thread was a hugggeeee help!!

I love this list!
I'm right in btw NC15 and 20 and I do wear 117 in HD foundation
117 is a bit lighter than I wanted it to be, but works great anyways :)
I am not sure about my foundation match in Mac. But I got a sample of 123 and 128 from Sephora recently and 123 is a perfect match for me.
What could be my shade in Mac F & B and Studio Fix?
I tried my sample of 123 today and it oxidized!!
