I thought I was the only one that has had a hard time with finding a foundation. I have worn Prescriptives Virtual Matte in Fresh Beige for 15 years. It is now discontinued and I have to find a new foundation. I was matched to 4Y08-09 several times. Last time I was matched to 2Y08. I know I’m very yellow so the 4Y seems more accurate. I have oily skin and foundations oxidize on me darker and …Read more

I wish I would've read the reviews for this process before I had it done because it was a total waste of time. Until Prescriptives makeup came out, I always had problems finding foundation that matched my fair skin tone. Everything was too yellow. I wore Prescriptives (matched as red/blue undertones) for years and it was a perfect match but they've discontinued my foundation. Since …Read more

I went to Sephora to try out and find a new foundation to try out. I wear the Tarte Amazonia Clay Airbrush Foundation in Tan Sand, but I wanted to try a liquid or cream foundation. I have a tan skin with yellow/golden undertone. They used the color IQ and what came up was 2y11. One of the foundations they recommended me was a Nars foundation in the shade Cadiz. I didn't try it in there …Read more

I am very glad to see that I'm not the only Sephora patron to have issues with the Pantone Color IQ. I've never been matched in the store because I have a negative history of being horribly mismatched at counters/stores with the SA flat-out ignoring considerations I've clearly voiced regarding color matching for my skin. For example, I have hyperpigmentation on my neck from old …Read more

Color IQ is excellent...if you have completely flawless and even-toned skin. For the remaining 99% of us, Color IQ is hit or miss. That's because Color IQ is affected by any skin flaws you have: freckles, melasma, scars, acne, ruddiness, you name it. Some Sephora associates do realize this and try to take pictures of areas not/not as badly affected, but even then, it's a combination …Read more

In theory this should be a really helpful matching system. In practice it's a mess and results are totally all over the place. Results will vary depending on a lot of factors but mainly, accuracy depends on how helpful your SA is.

I was first matched June 2015 as 4Y08. The SA I had at the time was friendly, listened to my skin concerns, removed my foundation for the best match …

I visited Sephora for probably the second time yesterday. I find the store poorly lit and rather overwhelming. I'm admittedly not knowledgeable about makeup application techniques (although I'm trying to learn) and I find the perfectly made-up associates a bit intimidating, but I was looking for a specific product. While I was there, I asked about a natural looking, dewy foundation …Read more

WHY THIS MAY WORK FOR SOME PEOPLE AND NOT FOR OTHERS (IT WORKED FOR ME!)

This is a free service offered by Sephora. They scan your face to determine the light/dark and undertone (red/yellow) components, and then give you an ID number. This varies with the seasons - summer tan vs winter pale, flushing (increases the redness factor), skin discolorations such as moles, melasma …

Agree with a lot of the negative reviews. My skin VERY obviously has a lot of pink in it. I tried the "Color IQ" on a lark, and it came up with a 2Y05 for my skin. The MUFE powder it had recommended was almost straight-up yellow. It looked great with the lighting in the store; when I got it home, it ended up looking too yellowish - and, eventually, as the day wore on - orange on my …Read more

First of all let me say that I don't really know that much about foundation/skin makeup. I've never had a use for it until this year (experiencing PCOS related adult acne breakouts). I've tried a variety of samples and drugstore foundations and have found that no matter what the colour is either too dark or too pink and makes my face look hyper pigmented.

I was HOPING …
