I am also a MAC NC45 (maybe slightly darker?), NARS Tinted Moisturizer in Malaga, and Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 460 Suede W. The middle shade (Golden Sunset) mixed with a little of the fourth shade (Deep Xanthe) make THE best foundation match for me. I'm very yellow in my undertone and little to no foundations ever seem to be yellow enough for me, but this is lovely. This makes for a good concealer as well as foundation. When I use this on my face, my skin looks very natural, however I don't need to use that much as my skin has no imperfections. It also mixes well with my Lancome foundation and gives a beautiful finish to my face. As a concealer it gives great coverage with less product, so my under-eye concealer's not as heavy as before. The product is actually really slippery when you touch it in the pan, but I'm sure that makes for easy blending. I purchased this palette as a replacement for my Bobbi Brown concealer and will continue to repurchase it from Makeup Mania. I don't even touch my MAC Select Cover Up anymore, and I can't wait until I finish it.

When my MUFE foundation ran out I started searching for other make-up alternatives since the nearest Sephora was an hour away and shipping from Sephora would've been far too long for my liking. Having had a fast and great first time experience from Makeupmania , here was my first stop. After reading superb reviews on Graftobian from MakeupAlley and other sources, I decided upon the palette to find my right shade and boy did I but I'm more impressed with the quality of the make up in general. First of all it far exceeds MUFE and despite the oils that are in this makeup my skin has actually been in better and clearer condition since using this make up and I have very acne prone skin . I used to use Smashbox, MUFE and BareMinerals and this is the clearest my actual skin has ever been w/o makeup, so i'm assuming the other brands clogged my skin. Anyways, the application is smooth,flawless, best coverage than any makeup brand that i've owned , last longing and looks like your skin. Love it! I never received so many compliments on "my skin"

This palette is a great way to find your correct shade. I am dark olive with yellow undertones(medium to dark skin). I use to wear mufe 173, but it is too light. Mac nc 45 is to light(yellow) and nc 50 to dark. This is dead on. The last two shades work great for me. The product itself was amazing. It went on light. It didn't feel heavy at all. Great coverage. Medium to full if desire. And it didn't take much. My sister even said " I like this one". A little goes a long way. You can also use the lighter colors for concealer. This product is worth giving a try. It is worth the money!
