Color: Punjab - M1 - medium with warm undertones, and a golden tone
and hopefully wears well all day. but the only thing that bothers me a lot is the oxidation. i’m surprised no one else has really mentioned that in their reviews or online youtube reviews. i’m normally neutral / yellow undertone so i got punjab, i should have gone one shade up to the neutral shade. because when i say this oxidized. it turned straight up yellow / gold and i had to use a white foundation mixer ( from nyx) to bring it back down to something that would fit my skin tone. other than that i love it so far....NARS Queen of Foundations!...Another Great foundation by Nars.
