Bare Escentuals swatches- foundation comparison


L to R- medium beige, golden medium, golden tan, medium tan and medium tan matte

These are the colors I mix and match depending on my tan. I am a medium complexion but for some reason the medium shades make me way too pale. I tend to mix and match on my face to create depth and make it look more real. Right now Golden tan seems to be the best match for me. I like the original formula because of the coverage and glow of it, but can only wear it when the weather gets cool, or it itches. In the summer I wear the matte.

I do cheat and use some liquids now and then. It seems they all break me out, though. I am dying to try the Laura Mercier mineral powder, but have read that it itches also. Anyone know of a good coverage mineral that doesn't itch?
