Illamasqua's Foundation Comparison Chart

Illamasqua have released a new comparison chart for their Skin Base foundation - allowing you to compare high end foundation shades so you can be accurately matched to their's.
This isn't a new chart, but it is the first time I am coming across it.

This does however, work in two ways. You can also find your shade in the others that are listed on it.
Brands included are: 

     - Sheer Matt
     - Sheer glow
     - Firming Foundation
     - Powder Foundation 

     - Face & Body

     - Studio Moisture Tint

     - Studio Fix
     - Studio Sculpt
     - Mineralise Satin Finish
     - Select
     - Pro Longwear 

     - Foundation Shade 

     - Perfect Touch
     - Matt Touch

     - Teint Radiance 

     - Teint Resist 

Bobbi Brown
     - Skin Foundation SPF15
     - Natural Finish Long Lasting
     - Foundation SPF15
     - SPF15 Tinted Moisturiser
     - Oil Free
     - Illuminating Finish Powder 
     - Compact Foundation SPF12
     - Foundation Stick
     - Moisture Rich Foundation SPF15
     - Luminous Moisturising foundation
     - Moisturising Cream 
     - Compact Foundation
     - Oil-Free Even Finish 
     - Compact Foundation

Using this chart, I can determine what shade I am in all these foundations.

For example, I am Barcelona in Nars Sheer Glow.
Now I also know that I am SB10 for the Illamasqua Skin Base, so it does work.

So hence, I am NC 35 in Mac Studio Fix, Studio Sculpt, Mineralise Satin Finish, Select, and Pro Longwear. The other two, Face & Body, and Studio Moisture Tint, do not have an appropriate shade for me. 

In the other Illamasqua foundation my shade would be 233.
For YSL, I would be a Honey.
And for Bobbi Brown, I would be Warm Natural, which I think is true as I have tried Bobbi Brown before. 

This is an amazing release from Illamasqua, and something which I have personally seen for the first time. Thank You Illamasqua!

Hope this is helpful!
