Suqqu Frame Fix Cream Foundation - colour guide
I was matched to 102 in the Cream foundation, which suggests the shades for darker skintones in this formula are extremely limited. I'm about an NC20 in MAC foundations, and Warm Ivory in Bobbi Brown. There are only three shades darker than my Suqqu match in the Frame Fix Cream (which does seem to run lighter than the other Frame Fix formulations).
The shades don't necessarily run true across the formulations. I was given sample of the Frame Fix Lasting Pact Foundation (compact cream foundation) in 102 and that is noticeably darker than the same shade in the Cream - I'd think I'd be 101 in the Lasting Pact.
I bought the 102 Frame Fix Cream Foundation (impulse purchase, which I am regretting a little as I rarely wear foundation) and will be posting a picture wearing it and a swatch later on in the week. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin, but it gives quite full coverage. There is also a definite knack to application (take a dot and apply it to freshly moisturised skin, blending quickly before it sets). On the plus side, you don't need any primer with it and the semi-matte finish means I don't need powder with it either, but at £65 for 25ml it is very expensive.
