The MUAs told me I was in for a treat because they had a visit form their Regional MUA. She matched me and they supplied me with a generous sample in the shade 94 AMBRE.
She said, "I don't know what foundation you are wearing now, but it the makeup you are wearing looks pasty." PAUSE!
I appreciated her candor. I explained that normally I mix two foundations to get my color. She gave me some helpful tips on blending two foundations to get the best color.
A friend of mine told me the lady was probably "pumping me" so I would invest in the Chanel.
Looking at these photographs, I must say that I found the Chanel to be more chalky looking than my
MAC MatchMaster. They really should do something about the horrid florescent lighting in department stores.
I thought the 94 AMBRE was a good match.
I think we were both wrong.
I can attribute some of the ashiness to the white finishing powder. But for the most part, I think the color is a little off.
My skin is very sensitive. However, I tried this foundation because a couple of my makeup buddies who also have sensitive skin did not have any problems.
Right now I'm recovering from a break out related to this product.
I also think the color match was off. Notice the "ashiness".
I think I should have gotten a sample 1 shade darker.
I do not think I will continue using the sample. Nor will I be purchasing the full size. I am really disappointed. I wanted this to work for me. #FAIL
