The shade is a couple shades darker than my shade and has an orange undertone but I mix it with some of my lighter foundations and it looks so beautiful and glory. ...In the summer I am a bit darker than normal so I was given shade medium but I will say even with the cool undertones this is definitely on the orange side and oxidized pretty quick and was too dark for me.

I have incredibly dry skin and this had a really nice finish after I applied it. It definitely runs darker and warmer than other brands though.

Sephora matched me way too dark...The coverage is good but I got matched in the store and when I got home it was way too dark about 5 to 6 shades darker.
