I’m in the process of destashing products that definitely do not work for me (more on that later) and realized that I have a tendency to avoid powder foundations despite the original bareMinerals formula actually working out decently for me. I knew that Light (W15, a warm color) didn’t work well for me despite having multiple tubs of it, and as I’m looking to destash all of that product, now is as good a time as any to swatch.
I’m lazy and only did some wrist swatches, but I don’t need to color match myself on this one, really.
From top to bottom: Fair, Fairly Light, and Light. Natural light vs flash (if you couldn’t tell).
I usually use Fair, but sometimes I mix in a tiny bit of Fairly Light. When I’ve been more tan historically, I’ve used Fairly Light, but to me it still pulls just slightly too warm (color IQ = 3Y04). Fair usually works just fine, although I think it’s laughable that Sephora matches it to 2R05 (it’s definitely lighter than that). The color Light (Color IQ=3Y06) tends to match my older sister well.
