NC25 Match: Drugstore and High End Foundations

I have been asked several times by readers to make a list of all the foundations (drug store and high end) that match our NC25 skintone.

Well here it is.

It is still a work in progress and will be updated as your comments come in and as I review new products.

Hope this helps.

Almay Truly Lasting Color Foundation: Buff 02
Boots No7 Lifting and Firming Foundation: Nude
E.L.F. Studio Pressed Powder: Porcelain 
Everyday Minerals: Winged Butter (yellow toned) or Light Olive (olive toned)
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation: NC25
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation: NC30



  1. Hello Dear Sara! I am a huge fan of your blog. I am a light-medium olive, and find that hardly anything matches. Especially all these drugstore shades, and even high end shades, that assume all of us have (or want!) pink, orange, or white tones in our makeup. I have gone the longest time with poorly matching foundation. Your blog is a God-send.

    I really appreciate this blog!! All Mediterranean, Latina, and Middle Eastern girls benefit from your efforts! Specifically, dear Sara, please let us know if you have any new finds to add to this list here, as it's been hugely helpful. ;)))
