Why isn't there a Light 42?
If the shades correspond to the shades in the liquid foundation, us pale girls are once again not catered to. Light 42 in the liquid is the only foundation pale enough for me, with enough coverage, but unfortunately breaks me out. Thought this would be great, but of course it's probably only for girls who aren't translucent. Why is it such a crime to have fair skin?

I've found the shades differ just a tad, because there are different binders and emollients to keep the compact, well, compact! SO especially on oily skin types, the shades will oxidize and become darker on the face a couple hours later. I am a L44 all year round (ask a Esthetician/MUA I keep it PALE! I'M IMMORTAL jk lol) but am a L44 also in the powder (I wish there was a L42) because it darkens on my skin after a couple of hours...but it definitely gives a matte finish and I adore all of Kat Von D's cosmetics! POINT IS: If you havean oily skin type go a shade lighter with a less dense of a brush for a light finish. If not, stick with your corresponding Lock-It Foundation shade for the compact (and travel touch-up) option Stay Fabulous <3 @ShaycrayMUA!

My question exactly!!! They don't ever think about us, fair ( especially - fair AND pink undertone ) girls.
The shades are not really the same as the liquid. I'm light 48 in liquid and that particular shade was much much darker in the compact foundation!

I am a 42 also in winter and 44 in summer and I found light 45 powder worked pretty well in terms of my summer complexion. Hope that helps and agreed, they need to make 42 in powder form!
