oh wait.. 

that chart has beautiful bronze above hazelnut.. 
on the site i think BB is after hazelnut.. 

i think ill just try the hazelnut.. although i hate returning things unless they hurt me 

(btw i tried hazelnut on my hand cus someone had opened one.. it looked fine but i think my face is darker) 

its hard to tell from someone swatching.. but ive been looking at a picture of me next to that chart.. 

i think im gonna end up mixing hazelnut and suede mocha

Think the difference is (should be) the undertone.   I just love all the beautiful colors of usHeart

Black Walnut looks yellowish, leaning to the darker blue/black in the darkest shades.   The Hazelnut and Carob look closer to Lupita's color (red undertone).

Yes coco I think you'll be good mixing with Suede Mocha.  It looks like the right mizer color if Hazlenut blended okay on your hand.

I just bought a bunch of these and I love, love, love them.  I bought several colors and so far I'm completely in love with Toffee.  I like it as a highlighter and if I mix it with Toast or Beautiful Bronze it actually gives foundation type coverage.   These are so inexpensive I would say order a couple and figure out what mix you like.  I literally mixed several together and almost everything looked good. 

Fawn is actually the one that isn't my favorite.  It is very, very yellow based.  It creates an "ashy" look no matter what I mix it with.   So I can't use it as a concealer but it did well as a highlighter even though I had to use a 2nd color to warm it up. 

Med. Bisque is a great color corrector but Toffee actually does a nice job of that too.  

I don't know I just love these and I can find a way to use them all.  I'm already worried about running outLOL 

They're pretty cheap, so I think I'm gonna order all of the ones with yellow undertones and see what happens, I can always try to give them away if they don't work for me. Thanks!

I have to retract the statement about Fawn.  It is actually a perfect match once I did some color correcting.  It is exactly 1 shade lighter than my favorite foundation.  

Toast is a good mixer to darken with (yellow based) and beautiful bronze has a yellow-orangery glow - very nice

The Nanacoco lip glosses are a 100% hit for me.  Every single one I tried was great.  They smell like butterscotchLOL

Very smooth, sticky enough to last a while but not sticky enough to be annoying.  Gorgeous colors.  Worth the $2.50 and then some.  

I'm still waiting for the Milani Brilliant Shine Glosses that I shouldn't have boughtUnhappy  Couldn't resist. 

Can't remember what else I got today but I'm excited that I FINALLY figured out that my undertone is yellow to yellow/orange.  I'm so happy I don't know what to do.   I pulled out my Milani Spiced Almond, put it on and waited five minutes and realized I actually have a foundation that matches my skin tone PERFECTLY.   All this time I thought Truly Topaz was too "yellow" but after 5 minutes you can't even tell I have it on.   My busy body ass was making it redder with Nutmeg.  SMH.  And my Iman Clay 5 stick, same exact thing.  I actually have several foundations that are a perfect match and I didn't even know itSmile

This has so many 5 star ratings...I'm trying to tell myself don't do it...I don't even wear makeup like that plus I just bought some brushes. Ugh why isn't this on sale? All their single brushes are.
