  1. Lovely pics and great detailed descriptions! Thanks for this rundown. Would you mine telling me what shade of the cocoa powder foundation that is in the picture. I’m very fair with cool pink undertones and it is next to impossible for me to find a matching foundation but that beauty looks like she could be the winner. Thanks.

    1. Hi Ariel, thanks so much for your comment! I don’t have it to hand as it’s boxed up (I’m due to move shortly) but it’s whichever is the palest in the collection as I’m always the palest! It works well on my skin and doesn’t appear too dark, and I’m usually a Mac N17 – N15 is a bit too pale and N20 is a bit too dark, so I’m bang in the middle. Hope that helps but shout if you need any more info xx

      1. Hi Sascha,
        Thanks for responding. I checked on Too Faced’s website and the lightest color is the fair. I’m still going to try to get out to Sephora and swatch it before I buy but unfortunately it’s far away. Ironically, there is an Ulta 15 minutes away from my house but these are Sephora exclusives. :/ Comparing the shade to the Mac range helped. I’m NW 15 in the winter and NW 20 in the summer. I find I get a lot room for play with powder foundations though so fingers crossed this will work for me. Thanks again!

        1. I know what you mean as I find mismatched powder foundations look a lot worse than liquid for some reason reason! It sounds like the lightest shade might be slightly too pale for you so it’s definitely a good idea to try one out if you can. Are there any powder foundations you use that you can recall the shade name? For example, the Laura Mercier one in Tender Rose is a good match for me too xx

          1. Hi Sasha,
            Thanks again for your help and good luck with your upcoming move. Laura Geller’s balance and brighten in Porcelain works wonders for me I also really like Covergirl’s clean finish oil control powder in Ivory. I’m definatley going to check out the Laura Mercier one now!

          2. If you need a lot of coverage but don’t like that plasticky finish that a lot of mineral foundations give then the Laura Mercier one is well worth a try; it gives amazing coverage and a lovely glow too! I’ve located the Too Faced one (hadn’t packed it yet and came across it over the weekend) and the shade I have is Fair, so hopefully that’ll give you a better idea. I haven’t tried the Covergirl one but I’ll definitely check it out – thanks for the recommendation! xx
