Conservatorie Honey Light, FOTD

To prove to myself that Conservatorie's Honey Light really is as orange as I claim it to be, I made a series of photos of me wearing it. The photos unfortunately do not confirm it as well as the mirror does. (Honey Light is the only one I chose in Conservatorie's Deluxe recipe - cant actually tell the difference from the Premium+ recipe).

I did not bother with primer or with applying lots of layers - it would have just gotten more intensely orange.

(just look under the eyes - orange is noticeable there but that's nothing when compared to the neck)

Do I need to add, that I absolutely hate the orange look on me? :P
Life a female version of a "Guido"...

I was truly amazed when I received these testers - on the homepage Honey looks sooo "olive" to me and IRL is such a bright orange, the feeling of disappointment is comparable to the one I had when I swatched SN Shock for the first time and found out it's bright orange (in my imagination Shock should have been pinkish golden smth and not the color of the setting sun).

I am getting a small inkling that Conservatorie's foundies are not as covering as Archetype's... bummer... they are so much more affordable. They're also full matte, lacking the beautiful glow Archetype has. That in itself should not be a very big problem - I can simply mix some shine into them, there is some talk regarding boron and silica microspheres on the forums...

It's so difficult for gals with pale skin to find the right foundation tones. Hopefully I can tweak he Caramel light into suitably white powder by adding TiO2.
