    Posted: Apr 26 2013 at 2:21pm
I went to Mac recently for a foundation and the guy recommended Face and body in N9. In the store under the lighting it seems to fit me. When I played around it at home it seem to not to be my match and a little too red. I know that my undertones are yellow. Been told by many and I know my undertone. I read they have a C9, but I'm done with MAC, their foundations don't do right by me. Any recommendations? TIA

I forgot about Iman.  If you have oily skin, make sure you ue a primer first and set the foundation with powder.  Iman makes my face shiney after only a few hours and it also tranfers.

Omg we have to same complexion issue. I tried Bobby Brown but it was too yellow I was told you have to mixed the two closest shades to get your complexion and for the price I'll pass. Anywho I been using Make Up Forever Matte Velvet 75 and Studio Fix Finish NW 48 and that was after I tried the MUFE 177 Chestnut HD that was making my face super oily. I find that all these brands make me too yellow are too red ugh. I was looking at Black Up which is new to the US but known in Europe and Africa. Oh yeah AJ Crimson too!! I cant forget Lacome. Let me know what you find that works for you I'm looking for perfection I'm a make up junkie. And is there anyway you can upload a pic so I can see  your undertone? Sometimes I think Im olive but whatever this color match is freaking crazy. And I had the same thing happen to me in the store. You should always ask for a sample that can last at least two days.

Oh and I was lookin on Youtube and to get the best match you have to go outside put the base color on your neck and for your undertone color place it on your inner forearm to match perfectly. I hope this works havent tried it yet
