    Can this be used on top of complexion rescue as a setting powder and to add a little more coverage? What color would I need if I use Buttercream 03 in the complexion rescue?

    Asked by: Cely
    I’ve used this combo very successfully, but I think the formulas have been changed. I’m using a different brand for both sunscreen and mineral foundation. Shiseido has destroyed both Bare Minerals and Laura Mercier. My former holy grails. I have no idea why they’d think it was a good idea to take a wrecking ball to everything that made these companies so successful.

    Light beige 09 is a good match for depth. It however is just a touch too rosy . What shade do you recommend?

    Asked by: Dianne22
    Hello Dianne22, You may enjoy the shade Neutral Ivory 06 or Medium Beige 12, as both shades will have a neutral undertone and will have fewer pink/rosy hues. You can hover your cursor over the colors for a brief description of each shade.

    I use Fair 01 in the matte loose powder, and it’s perfect. However, the same Fair 01 in the original powder is too light. Visually, the powder also looks lighter. Which color in the original powder would be the best match for the matte?

    I use Fair Ivory 02 in the original foundation and it is a true match. I just tried 02 in the matte foundation and it is too tan/peachy on me. Should I try Fair 01 or Fairly Light 03 next?

    Hello Dr JPS, If the shade Fair Ivory 02 is too dark for your complexion, one shade lighter is Fair 01 in the Original Loose Powder Foundation SPF 15. -Brittny, Clean Beauty Artist
