I’ve just ordered 21 - that l had hoped was fair, but not chalky white? Some reviews have said it is still very pale. I’m fair with slightly pinky undertones... Anyone use and have knowledge? Thank you 😊
I use No. 13 so to me 21 would be like fake tan! I googled it before I bought and looked at different shade swatches on bloggers arms to get an idea of how the shades would look on me. I think it might also be on Findation
Hello strawberry My tube is arriving on Monday - l decided on 21 from watching a few YouTube videos... I hope that works. All l know is that lm not the very palest in foundations. The very pale ones turn my skin chalky. Thanks for checking!
I'm the same. Despite being a strawberryblonde and pale as feck the very palest make me look dead. This is the best I have tried shade wise. It's also lovely to apply as it's very moisturising. I still try other stuff but always come back to it.
Hello Strawbery my no21 arrived today! I’ve tried a bit ... l’m hoping it isn’t too pale? Hopefully as l know it ‘adjusts’ - l will be ok. I think 23 is the next darkest? Anyway, it smells lovely and l’m happy enough to use it as sun protection!
Hello strawberry! Got mine and have been using it fir s few days now. I really like it. I’m not using any other foundation. Beforehand, l moisturise with The Ordinary NMF mixed with Squalene oil. I will be adding an SPF too, as apparently we don’t use enough in the B.B. cream to get the full benefits of the Factor 42. I use a bit of Laura Gella ‘ Brighten-and Balance’ powder on top! The 21 warms up from the ‘grey’ and just looks like my skin.🌸
