I wanted to show you swatch comparisons of the different liquid foundations I have. It’s very interesting to see all of these on my skin. They’re swatched on the inside of my arm.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 – I’m Pure for Sure Ivory
NARS Sheer Glow – Siberia
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation – 110 Pink Porcelain
Estee Lauder Double Wear – 1C1 Shell
Jemma Kidd Light As Air SPF 18 – 01 Ultra Light
Too Faced Amazing Face – Vanilla Creme
Holika Holika Essential Petit BB SPF30 PA++ BB Cream – #1
NARS Sheer glow in Siberia is a perfect neutral match for my skin. When I wear it, it covers up any of my pink overtone and I like how it looks. It’s the lightest neutral of all of these on me.
MUFE HD 110 Pink Porcelain gives me a bit of color and it apparently matches perfectly with my neck. When the MUA at Sephora was trying to match me, she was pleased with how it just melted into my neck along my jawline.
Holika Holika #1 Light Beige actually appears to be a greige (greyed beige) when swatched. I think this also works really well for me. It makes me think of Inglot 350 (the light matte eye shadow). I’m glad it’s not too yellow, too orange, or too dark.
I haven’t worn the new Benefit foundation yet, but the color looks almost identical to the Too Faced Amazing Face Vanilla Creme. That particular hue gives me a lot of color to my face, so I’m hoping it will look good. I really really love the finish that the Amazing Face gives me. I think it’s gorgeous. Updated: I have worn the Benefit. Nice finish, slightly too dark, very similar to the Too Faced.
Jemma Kidd’s Ultra Light looks so dark and peachy compared to the other shades! Estee Lauder’s Double wear in 1C1 Shell is only slightly lighter than it. Shell is definitely darker than MUFE’s 110 Pink Porcelain.
$34 – Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 – I’m Pure for Sure Ivory
$42 – NARS Sheer Glow – Siberia
$40 – Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Foundation – 110 Pink Porcelain
$35 – Estee Lauder Double Wear – 1C1 Shell

$8.99 – Holika Holika Essential Petit BB Cream SPF 30 – #1 Light Beige
After wearing the Benefit, the finish is great, much like the Too Faced, but it’s a tad too dark. I wouldn’t purchase the Jemma Kidd, Estee Lauder, Make Up For Ever, Too Faced or Benefit again at this point. I’ve purchased the Holika Holika a few times. I would purchase the NARS again.
Remember when looking at the arm swatches, those are all unblended. They do blend out and work with the coloring in my face, for the most part. I can also lighten the color with FaceAtelier white liquid foundation to get a better color match.
What do you think about the color variance in these foundations?
