One of the worst colourmatches ever, their lightest shade, "Porcelain Ivory" is anything but, it's quite pink, and if not blended in right it has an almost red stain to it. This foundation is not forgiving either since it does go quite matte very fast and sticks to your skin (since it claims to be 24 hour wear). I can't wear this foundation at all.
Offender #2 - Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Classic Ivory
I used to buy Classic Ivory shades a lot because the lightest colour was often too pink for me, and this is the case with Dream Liquid Mousse, love the foundation, but the colour, terrible. This is the actually one of the darkest foundations that I own.
Offender #3 - Rimmel Stay Matte 100 Ivory
I like this foundation as well, but the lightest colour is too dark. In this case, I wrote to the company after buying this, told them how NONE of their foundations match me, and they offered to send me a free product, which turned out to be the Stay Matte powder, that was nice of them, but they keep putting out foundations that are too dark. I recently tried their Match Perfection foundation, and the lightest shade was very dark for me, can't wear it.
Offender #4 - Rimmel Lasting Finish 100 Ivory
Another Rimmel foundation, I like how liquidly and runny this one is, but again, the colour match isn't right. This one actually isn't terrible, but I included it here anyway.
Offender #5 - Revlon Age Defying 002 Fair/Light
What irritates me about this foundation is they do carry a lighter shade, I think it's 001 Fair, but we don't get it in Canada, so I am SOL on this one too.
There are others, but these are the ones that stand out to me the most. After trying so many foundations and being disappointed, I find that higher-end ones have a much better shade selection and I end up wasting less money that way, plus if I don't like it, I can always return it. I think finding the right foundation is a lifelong battle, since your skintone changes, your needs and your skin gets lighter and darker depending on the season. If you are fair-light, please tell me your best suited colour match below!
