I bought BB3, I'm in MAC NC15 or 20 in Summer. I mix this with Sunday Riley's tinted primer and my makeup stays on All day! My skin is luminous and healthy and no breakouts and is sun protected.

I had bought this in color 32 when in Europe. Is ok but not quite my color although the foundation is great. So, now I purchased 31 since it is available in the USA (thanks whomever thought of this we needed this color here!), and it is fenomenal! I'm oiliy, middle forties, no wrinkles but a little discoloration or "freckles". Also, for reference, I'm NC15 in MAC and this color if you look at the bottle you'll say "no way", well it blends beautifully and I've been told I look so "radiant" and "natural". I say this one is a keeper. I you have yellow undertones, try this one. Thanks Guerlain! By the way, I settle this with Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Sand SPF15.

So I NEVER write reviews unless I'm extremely satisfied...Great product for older good skin. I'm a makeup junkie and have been all of my life. I've tried most high end cosmetics to include their foundations, to name a few: Burberry Velvet in 203, Mac in NC15 (the original can not remember name), new Dior Nude 021 (too gold/olive no good match here), Dior Forever 021 (again color not good), Guerlain Parure (new one) and Guerlain Lingerie De Peau, both good in 031 (is a pale yellowish but works pretty good), Armani Silk 2 & 4, Shiseido P20 & P40 (the one with a high SPF and in the blue bottle) very good foundation too...ok enough of these, just wanted to let you know of some I have tried...now to the YSL, the color is GREAT!!!! The B30 is only a tiny dark wish I could get B20, anyhow this foundation is very good. It does have a dewy look but you can mattify a little by adding a finishing powder (try Laura Mercier Sand Mineral with SPF 15). Anyway, great job YSL! Now bring us the "lighter shades" LOL!
I had to write this review because I had tried this product a few years ago in the shade #4 (I'm MAC NC15) and was not pleased with the color or the foundation itself. It was too dark for me and simply didn't see anything that would make me want to buy it again. It joined the "other stuff" I have and don't care for. Six years later, I've been using Cle De Peau (love it by the way) and wanted something different. The Armani Sales Rep. told me tro try this in #2...One word "wow". I can now see radiance/glow this makeup gives your face and how beautifully it covers redness. The #2, I thought was "egg" yellow, but somehow it neutralizes my skin and makes it flawless. So, yeap, I fell for you again, Giorgio! I think you need to try this, and possibly go a shade lighter not darker in order to obtain better results. Before you buy, take samples of a lighter and darker shade.
I only have one thing to say, I almost NEVER write reviews....GET ONE!
For info purposes I'm MAC NC15. I love this blush! It makes me look alive not clowny if you have a light hand. My place of work is a different atmosphere from most people's and I always dress professional not revealing at all and this blush works great! Buy it before it's gone! You'll not regret it.

I purchased the #25 thru Sephora. Great foundation for oily skin! I have tried all and used all to include Bobbi Brown in warm ivory, Chanel Teint Innocense in cameo. This foundation stays longer than any other. I wear an spf 30 moisturizer under it (I now like Aveeno). I called the Makeupforever studio in New York and the lady who answered all my questions (a bunch!) was very nice in explaining and helping me with the foundation shades. I have also purchased their lipsticks and overall, I'm satisfied with their products.
