Question
Animal Testing?
Curious if they test their products on animals or against animal testing? I usually try and stick to brands that do not have animal testing of their products,

Unfortunately, P&G does do animal testing where required by law (meaning they probably sell their products in China) so they aren't entirely cruelty-free... I was bummed when I found that out because I love the one EDPs. :(

I've worn both MUFE 118 when I wanted to adjust for sallowness (my exact match is120, which is a bit yellower ).Color IQ-wise I'm 3Y05 . I'm pleased with shade 100, which though tagged as 3Y06 I think goes on lighter and a little more neutral. It's warm, but not super yellow. It looks about 2 shades too dark in the jar for some reason.

Go to the color IQ web link on sephora

http://www.sephora.com/color-iq?icid2=Makeup_Color_IQ_Quick_Link&country_switch=ca

then enter the foundation you already use it matches you via a code and then you can see the other foundations it recommends, you can also try selecting a shade lighter or darker if your not matched exactly.

Question
Shade for light skin?
I have light but not super-fair skin (used to but has darkened). So many shades are too yellowy on me. I need a true neutral. I have worn Arden cream in Sand and 02 Beige Clair in Guerlain. Any suggestions?

Oh, you should definitely go for 080 Creamy. Other possibilities would be 078 Beige and 100 Natural Glow. But I would try 080 Creamy. 060 Classic was the perfect shade match for me, and I used to wear Guerlain Beige Clair 02 but it was definitely several shades too dark for me, so I always added a lighter foundation because otherwise my face was clearly darker than my neck.

So anyway, yea I would try 080 Creamy.

Also check out these swatches - they may be helpful:
http://www.beautyprofessor.net/2013/01/dolce-and-gabbana-perfect-finish-creamy.html (she has like NC20-25 skin I think...she mentions it somewhere, so that's why some of the light shades look soooo light!)

I would probably go with the Classic #60. From the looks of it it looks they are numbered according from light to dark. It also does not appear to have any warm undertones, plus you could build the coverage if it is a bit too light or wear a bronzer. I am very fair with pink undertones as well and I am going to give Classic 60 a try!!

How do I make this product look less orange on my face? I use powder and primer, and was matched to the color by skin IQ
is there something I can add to my routine? I already made the investment, and if it was just a little less orange-y it would be great!

skinIQ probably got your match wrong honestly. You should go to the store you bought it from and personally look at the shades that are either lighter or darker depending on what you need. In my experience, looking "orange" means its too dark and also too yellow. So you should look for something maybe one or two shades lighter. Dip a finger or sponge in and swipe it on your neck. Look in the mirror with the lights in the store, but also walk outside onto the sidewalk and ask a store associate for a mirror to hold or just use a compact from your purse. In the natural light it will be easier to tell how well a particular shade matches your natural skin tone.

If you find a shade that's the right lightness / intensity but it still seems too yellow / orange, then try and find a shade that looks more pink / has a pink undertone. If you don't know how to do this, then ask a store associate to help you find a foundation with a pinker undertone that suits you better. If there isn't one in the d&g perfect creamy foundation lineup, then they will be able to direct you to similar foundations that have suitable shades. I'm thinking Diorskin Nude or YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat or Armani Maestro or Lasting Silk. If you want to look outside Sephora, you should DEFINITELY check out the chanel perfection lumiere lineup, as they have a REALLY GOOD selection of NON YELLOW shades with rosy pink undertones that will probably have a good match for you

I'm medium-light yellow with yellow undertones--generally NC20 or Y305 in the Sephora system, and though this matches Y306, Natural Glow100 worked perfectly. It looks much darker in the jar, BTW.

I ordered Carmel - as I also have yellow undertones. It was a little too light. Great return policy for Sephora ( returned to store). Ordered bronze - shade is pretty good neutral. This make-up is the best!

Question
Color match
I am interested on the D&G perfect finish creamy foundation but I am not sure on the color match. I have uneven skin tones with more yellow undertones. Currently I use Clarins Ever matte in honey 110...I am prone to breakouts but want something with coverage. I feel the clarins does not last.

Yes, so from what I have read about Clarins Ever Matte, it's really a better foundation for people who don't need much coverage / who have really good skin in the first place. My question to you would be: how oily are you.

I am VERY oily (my entire face gets very shiny, and most foundations break apart - I singlehandedly disprove almost every long-wearing foundation's claims at longevity, so I quite appreciate the ones that actually do last on me!), and I tried D*G classic creamy foundation in the shade 060 Classic, which is the lightest shade. The shade match was great, and would probably work for you, but the problem was that when I started to get oily, even with good mattifying powder, the foundation just couldn't retain it's surface cohesion.

It ended up breaking apart and sliding around all over my face making me look like a hot mess - very unpolished and not professional / made me feel unattractive too, especially when I'm having breakouts and I look in a mirror and notice that some of my pimples / scars have become apparent since the foundations has slid off of them!!

So, long story short. If you have break outs and aren't SUPER oily, then give this a go in classic 060. But if you are pretty oily, then I would go with Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in something like 210N, or Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in Intensity 1.0. I just ordered the Estee Lauder as I just ran out of my Chanel Perfection Lumiere and want something lighter for summer. Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in B10 would be a good one as well, but I haven't tried it so I can't really tell you how it is. I used to use that Lancome TIU 24h...if you want coverage, WOW, that one has PHENOMENAL coverage. But it doesn't look fake or too heavy. Also I know girls who looooooove their coverage like the Estee Lauder Double Wear regular that comes in a glass bottle, but I've also read that that one looks super heavy and almost fake and it feels like you're wearing so much makeup and can possibly break you out more.

So I say, evaluate your skin, and if you're comfortable, go for the dolce, but if you have reservations, play it safe with estee lauder double wear light or lancome teint idole ultra 24 h (this would be my first choice for you), or chanel perfection lumiere b10 (this is my hg right now, but since it's summer I'm going lighter weight to branch out) or chanel perfection lumiere velvet in b10.

I have Classic 60 which is the fairest and I would say whilst it's fair it's not pink so it would probably be okay. Otherwise Beige would be okay. It's hard to tell from the photo how fair you are.
