  7. yay, i'm Armani 7 too! :smile:

    here are mine (very wide range of colors. i'm a Florida girl and in the sun often, more so in summer):

    Revlon PhotoReady in Cool Beige & Medium Beige

    Maybelline Age Rewind in Medium Beige & Tan

    Clinique Superfit in Nutty (almost out and discontinued)

    Clinique Even Better in Nutty (to replace above)

    Tarte Amazonian Clay tinted moisturizer in Agent 16 (prob WAY too dark, but the next lightest were too yellow or too pink. i just blend well and use it in summer)

    Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation in Tan-Deep (runs very light)

  9. I haven't tried a lot of foundations but in MAC, I'm NW 45 and in Bare Escentuals, I'm Golden Deep.
  10. I am Korean and I am NW0~NW5.

    Even NARS Siberia (By the way, NARS Siberian is NW5~NW10.) is too dark on my skin. I would like try Bobbi Brown 00 Alabaster but they don't import Alabaster in Toronto, Canada (They import upto 0 Porcelain.) so I can't try. I heard that the Bobbi Brown Alabaster has similar shade as NARS Siberian so probably it might not work on my skin.

    The only one foundation I use is MAC Face and Body Liquid Foundation in White. It is only in MAC pro store but I like this foundation. If you are too fair and can't find the right shade for foundations, I would recommend this foundation. I think this foundation works well for all skin types. My skin is dry/combination. When I use this foundation, it is not too matte and not too oily. Another good thing about this foundation is that you can mix it with other foundation to get the right shade. Well, actually, this foundation is for this purpose. In my case, I directly put this foundation onto my face though because I am too fair so I don't have to mix it with other foundations.

    I would like to try Illamasqua Foundation in 100 and 105 shades because I heard that these shades have similar shades with MAC Face and Body Liquid Foundation or whiter shades. However, it is sad that they don't import in Toronto so I can't try.
  11. NARS Siberian Sheer Glow & Matte is much yellower than BB Alabaster.

    Illamasqua ships worldwide from their official site (though not from Sephora); however, the shipping from their site to Toronto is pretty fast (just over a week) and reasonable.
  12. Olivey, medium tones...

    MAC Studio Fix C4
    Armani Luminous Silk 65
    Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua mix B30 + B40
    Garnier BB Medium Dr (the darker of the two)
    Armani Face Fabric mix 3 & 4

    This is a great idea for those of us who have to guess over the internet!!!!!!
  13. NARS Sheer Matte in New Guinea
  14. I am adding..
    Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation in Warm Natural
    Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Warm Natural
    Bobbi Brown Pressed Powder in Soft Sand
    MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Powder in Medium Plus
  15. MAC LIquid Studio Fix NC50
    MAC Matchmaster Foundation 7.5
    MUFE HD # 177
    MUFE Matte Velvet # 70
    (Drugstore for the Not so Diva days) L'oreal True Match N8 Cappuccino
