I MAY order online and have had a sample of the Porcelain which was pale- maybe just a tad too pale- but how much darker is warm ivory? I use Ivory concealer which is slightly ighter than my real skin tone, which according to their shade chart means I should go for warm ivory foundation. However, when had my colours done by Estee lauder, I come out as cool to neutral.
I might not take the risk- and get to the stores sometime, but wondered if anyone had used both?
Hello, I am porcelain in Bobbi Brown. To be honest, you really can't predict your colour there from what you are at EL. Even though they are sister companies, their foundation shades - and range - could not be more different.
I'd really wait and get into store and have them apply it properly to you and advise on the shade (and remember to check it yourself in natural light!). You'd hate to go wrong with a foundation purchase.
The other thing to consider is if your skin is at all tanned at the mo, then it's not the best time to buy a new foundation for the winter, as your skin starts paling again.
So, pale ladies, do you end up with different shades for summer and winter? I was supposedly an alabaster in March (personally I think it was a bit pale), but in the summer I am more of a warm ivory or even sand.
Make sure you check it in natural light - the warm sand that I bought a couple of years ago was definitely too yellow when I got outside.
