I was color matched to this in store but now I feel like it looks too orange. What can I do?
I was color matched to G50 and it looked like a good match in the store. However, once I went outside and saw it in natural light, it looked too orange or maybe a shade too dark. I'm not sure what I could do as far as color. I have so much trouble finding a good match for my skin tone and I thought for sure getting the color iq done and trying it on in the store would help a lot but it didn't.

I would perhaps try one shade lighter, and in the Neutral tones instead of the Golden tones, so maybe the N40.

I was also matched in the G category in store probably because I have yellow/gold undertones. And same as you I walked outside and felt like I looked like a Jersey girl clown! The color that ended up matching me perfectly in natural light and looking great everywhere else was N60. It was still a warm color on me but didn't add any orange or gold I didn't need. I would recommend swapping to a neutral tone foundation or trying a neutral powder on top of your existing foundation and seeing if it'll play it down :)
G50 has golden/yellow undertones. If you like the product finish, I would try N50. N is neutral (and P is pink undertones). You can either return it, or try a sample of the N50 (or N40 depending on your shade) and mix a little of the two together. I was also color matched with the IQ system and I felt like it was a little off. I end up mixing my foundations anyways! Hope this helps.
