I swear to god YSL has 500 shades of beige. So I need help.

I want to get an envelope clutch that matches my nude louboutins, but there are SO MANY VERSIONS OF BEIGE, I have no idea what is the right shade. I ordered a style that Neiman Marcus titled "dark beige" but the photo looked lighter than the bag that I got (so it went back bc it was an ugly shade of tan that resembled block heeled shoes from the '80s). I've seen: Poudre, Beige, Nude, Medium Beige, Dark Beige, Sand, Latte.... anyone have swatches?! I feel like the YSL website isn't helpful either.

I hear you... I'm in the same boat. I purchased the Becky chain wallet in Gold Sand and now I'm trying to find a small key pouch/coin purse to put my key fob in. From what I've seen, Saint Laurent hasn't made an SLG in that shade of beige, so now I'm looking at other designers. Here's my chain wallet in different lighting so you can see what different lighting does to the bag. In my opinion, the truest color of my bag is across between the bottom two photos.

Thank you!!
I don’t mind - and actually appreciate - the versatility in shades as many designers never do that (see: Louis Vuitton, Gucci) but I think the nomenclature needs to be consistent - whether on the YSL website or on a department store site. If I know there’s 10 shades of beige but they are all consistently named, I’ll know what I’m getting.

Complete aside- neimans and bergdorfs have the worst photos and names of colors for bags. I even got an entirely wrong bag from them before. Who’s leading their web design ship?

Can anyone help with this beige?
I ordered this camera bag off matchesfashion and it doesn’t say which one it is. SSENSE is called dark beige, are they the same colour?
Here's a video of the small loulou in dark beige... she mentions the Saint Laurent color code and how they call it dark beige.

Saw this WOC color as sea salt on Saks website, was also looking to buy it in the recent sale, but didn’t eventually.
