I think I've tried every foundation in the market to find a color that matches. I am very fair with both pink and yellow undertones. Most foundations are too dark, too pale (ghost like) or too yellow (Bobbi Brown). This is actually perfect and for the first time I am getting compliments on my skin. Love it!

Just bought it and so far i love it! pretty decent coverage without making you feel heavy. I also stay pretty clean with it throughout the day, which is great since my face tends to get oily.

I lOVE THIS fOUNDATION . I think I found my HG foundation. The color is perfect and I dont have any breakouts no line of demarcation. And I dont Feel or look like I am wearing a mask. I get compliments on my skin every time I wear it. It makes my other products look good too. My skin looks even and not cakey. Only bad thing is the price $45 dollars for foundation is pretty steep but it's worth it.

I love this foundation. The color is perfect. For the reviewer below who had trouble with hers matching properly--if you take it back the SA will redo it for you.
My skin is very neutral colored and very pale. Most foundations are either too pink or too yellow/orange and all are too dark. This matches exactly. I had the SA match to my neck which is slightly lighter than my face.
The sheer coverage is really all anyone would probably ever need--the medium can be chalky. The main drawback is no sunscreen. Otherwise it wears well and looks great.

After years of searching and wasting money, I found this custom foundation. It's very expensive and totally worth it. I love it.

I bought this about 4 months ago, and although at first I was pleased, I'm no longer happy with this foundation.
The color match was perfect, or at least it seemed at first. After a few days of wearing it, I realized the color was a perfect match in the lower cheek area where the color reading was taken from. But when it came to my jawline/neck area, there was a huge contrast between where the foundation ended and my clean skin began, my face looked pink and my neck yellow... the dreaded line. This was so disappointing since I had paid $45 for this foundation I no longer feel comfortable wearing. I think the problem is not the foundation, but the MA who should have noticed the different hues around my face and taken the sample from my neck instead. Don't think I'll repurchase, I'll just make cheaper mistakes from now on 'till I find the right one.

This has been a great find for my PPP skin (well almost great it has no SPF). My diligence with sun protection has meant that I can no longer find a pale enough foundation – not to mention one that doesn’t grab my rosacea flakies. The Prescriptives custom foundation is a joke and it has too much room for error – I tried it and never got a match or a finish I liked. On the other hand the EA Red Door Spa Custom Foundation is a great high-tech solution (even my hubby thought it was cool)… they point a digital reader on your neck – right beneath your jaw line get a reading and adjust your color on the computer from there (TIP – I had them add as much yellow as they could and then lighten it as much as they could to compensate for the yellow add). I choose a dry skin formula, sheer coverage and a natural finish but you can choose an oily skin formulation and medium or full coverage with matte finish too. The MA puts a bottle in place and then the foundation is automatically dispensed and mixed. BTW this foundation is not part of the regular EA line - they partnered with a company (Custom Color Labs) that provides the Custom Foundation kiosk in the EA Red Door Spas. - so far this seems soothing to my skin no breakouts - it has no fragrance and is silicone based so it should be good for sensitive skin. UPDATE: I still enjoy using this on my super pale super sensitive skin - I rotate it with my other foundations (Tarte Smooth Operator and Aromaleigh Glissade) depending on the look I want and how my skin is behaving. It also makes a nice light nonirritating eye shadow base for me.

If you want a foundation that matches your skin perfectly, this is it. The consultant uses a camera thingee to take a picture of your skin, and they usually grab the color from your neck so that when you apply the color to your face, your face and neck will blend perfectly -- no weird line. Some people with sensitive skin have a problem with the foundation (it's definitely not hypo-allergenic), but most people love it. Bring your empty bottle with you and you save 20% off next time.

I love this foundation. I have very difficult skin to match--colorwise. Could never find one to match and got tired of mixing several together--I have very pale neutral toned skin. This foundation matches perfectly. The medium coverage is a bit chalky but the sheer coverage is great. The only thing I don't like about is there is no sunscreen included. The price is a bit high but I don't have to buy it too often and I can cut corners somewhere else.

The only reason I put that I wouldn't buy this again is because of the price. It's $45. The color matches perfectly to my skin and it's nice and matte. The only thing is I don't think it stays on all day.
