She also matched me to NC20 in the pro-longwear concealer Should I return them for cooler undertones? Like I'm used to.. Or is yellow supposed to help cancel out red in my face.

It also doesn't cover the redness of my cheeks as much as I'd like. I wear b30 in ysl touche eclat and I love it, and I am a c3, so maybe b20 for you? Are you neutral leaning cool? Yeah I think I'm neutral leaning cool, and since I usually wear more neutral foundations when I wear foundation I never really paid too much attention to it.
Thanks for the YSL recommendation-- I'll check it out! God, Face and Body is so strange. I wear C2 and I'm an NC C1 was just a touch light, but whenever I look it up online, the consensus is that C2 is about NC I guess it's sheer enough that it doesn't matter too much, but it drives me crazy.
I know! I'm neutral leaning slightly warm, and wear Nars Deauville neutral right now but Chanel vitalumiere aqua in beige rose 12 pink toned works well on me also. I did a lot of finagling on those sites to come up with me being NC Maybe they matched you with NW25 for concealer since it has to be a bit lighter than your skin?

Yet another foundation I will have to try based on your suggestion. Congrats again on your baby girl! Hi Karen! Thanks so much for your helpful reviews! Pat it onto your nose first over the pores , then layer the foundation on top, then do the powder.
Try less foundation, and then your usual amount of powder. Maybe try one with a tint. Maybe use a pressing motion and a puff instead of a brush?

Thank you so much for this post, I was really curious to know the diffence between Face and Body and Waterweight!

I just started using this one and I gotta say, I am very impressed so far!
