Like Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation, the shades are numbered. The first digit tells you how pink or yellow the foundation is (1 is the most pink; 9 is the most yellow; 5 is neutral). The second digit goes from black to white. A second digit of 0 has the most black/is the darkest; a second digit of 9 is the lightest. The third digit tells you chroma — whether the undertone of the foundation is blue or violet. In the case of the Cream foundation, all shades end in 4.

    Thanks for swatching these, I’ve been wondering what color to try for Shu foundations (though I’m interested in the stick foundation, not this one) and wondering about #584. Judging from these swatches, I’ve probably guessed my color match :D

    I have this foundation in no 754 and i have to say i LOVE it. Its perfect for my dry skin issues and is long lasting. My favourite thing about it is the colour. All the foundations i have tried have just a touch too much yellow but this one is perfectly neutral on me. I wonder if the liquid version of this foundation has the same undertones

    I’d love to know if 584 is light enough for me? I’m NW/NC10. Anyone know?? Thanks!

  • Ryan says:

    Christa, 584 might be a tad bit dark on you. I wear shu uemura’s fluid foundation in 784 and it matches my nc15 skin quite well. But if you’re a nw10 I’ll bet that 584 will be close enough. Plus you can always lighten up with powder. :)
