Swatches For BB Creams/Foundations

last night I did some swatches on my wrist to test how dark Dr.G actually is.. because I applied Dr.G on my whole face and realise that its abit dark on me..same as revlon Colorstay Sand Beige which I also find it abit dark for my skin... however, when Revlon LF is applied on my whole face and top with loose powder, its still not very dark..

So to prove that my eyes are on playing tricks on me, I decided to add to more swatches ..
- MAC Studio fix Compact in C3 - I had been using this shade for almost 8-10 years, that i had lost count how many tubs I had used up... its a almost a perfect shade for my skin I feel.. ( just that now that I grow older, maybe i find the powder starting to be quite drying on my skin)

- Estee lauder double wear liquid foundation in Bone.. when the SA picked this shade for me, she really tested the color by piling 2 big patches of different colors on my cheeks, and she said that Bone is more suitable for me.. however, when i applied on my whole face and top with loose powder, i looked abit on the white side...

Finding the perfect color/ formula for our skin is so so difficult!! Either I ended up being a white ghost or too dark face... sad!!!
