And the winner is...
I got NW43 after I took NW48 back. The NW48 was off by a country mile. I could tell in the dark that it was all wrong. I feel that the SAs that work for MAC don't listen nor see well. I went back and they swatch this one and NW45. NW 45 was too orange. I settled for the NW43. This powder seen to absorb into the skin. I can't tell that I am wearing it. This is the powder that I wear almost daily. I have a 5 minute face and I use this powder. I am very oily and it does nothing for the oil. I just have to blot. Overall, I am very satisfied. One thing that I notice is that it neutralizes red. I have areas on my face that are red and wearing this powder makes them invisible.
I purchased this product because I didn't have a decent foundation. The one that I had been using was too dark and I had to use it sparingly. I tested this in 8.0. I loved it except it was too dark. This product oxidizes on me terribly. I later got a sample of the 7.5. This one turned out to be true. It matches very good. I have very oily skin and as far as shine is concerned I still have to work with that. Overall, it is very doable. This product oxidizes so, if you are a perfect match when you put it on and at the end of the day it turns orange or dark then you may want to go up a shade. I would advise getting as many samples as it take to find your color because at the end of the day you are spending your money.
