Loved the samples, it really is impossible to know what the perfect shade is just by looking online.
However, I found my shade and it is no longer available to purchase, so had to settle for a different shade that's not quite right. If the shade isn't available then it shouldn't be in the sample.
I was easily able to figure out which color foundation I need from these samples.
I was on the fence about cream foundation. Love that I could purchase a sample pack to try the foundation and different colors. My skin feels clean and natural - will definitely be purchasing the full size.
I'm thankful that you offer this sample bundle. I was able to try out the foundation and find which color works best for me. I love that the foundation is so light weight but that I can build on it if needed.
I am very fair-skinned, so ordered the Fair sample bundle. Other reviews said the shades in it were even lighter than fair shades usually are. This is true. I had been wearing Mary Kay's Ivory, which is their lightest shade, and A'del's Ivory is much lighter. As pointed out in other reviews, I will probably be able to use the Ivory and Fair shades as concealer. Probably Natural Fair is going to be my go-to shade for foundation, though any of them would work OK really. Light Sand is a little more yellowish.
The samples come in little plastic tubs with snap-open lids which will be great for travel. The foundation cream is solid, but soft, at least in the cool dry climate where I live, and easy to apply with a finger or with a Q-tip for greater precision. I think these samples are going to last a long time since I don't apply much foundation, so all in all this was a great deal.
