L'Oreal True Match shades VS Mac shades

L'Oreal True Match and MAC Swatches.


Loreal True Match VS MAC
C3 = Nw20
C6 = Nw40
C9 = Nw45
N4 = Nw25
N7 =  Nw35
W3 = Nw20 
W4 = Nc25
W6 = Nc35
W7 = Nc45
W8 = Nw35

These are the only L'oreal shades I have, so I can't know how the in-between shades match up with mac, but hopefully this will help you all!

    1. I'm not sure I understand your question...you'd just pick a shade that matched your tanned skin. No tips or tricks needed, just get what matches

    2. ..I thought that when your tanned you must choose a foundation with a shade darker than your shade and with a warm undertone, even if you have it cool...is it correct? sorry but I'm a bit confused!

    3. No, that seems like an insane rule. I can't see why choosing a foundation when you're tan should be any different than choosing one when you're not tan. Either time you choose one that matches you exactly, undertone and all.

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! It's really an awesome post...I've been wondering which shade I'm in MAC but I wasn't keen on going to the only story in my country to find out...
    You're such an awesome person! I love your posts!

  3. Thanks I think I might be wearing the wrong shade, but since I'm like NW45 I think the C8 might oxidizes to the right color.

  11. Hi, what would be MAC's comparison to n6 and w7? are they around about the same colour? I wanted to order this foundation online since they dont have all the shades here in australia. I am currently using revlon colorstay's golden caramel and sometimes toast. What do you recommend as the closest match?

    Thank you!
