I purchased the foundations shown, except for the Cover FX N10; I asked for a sample on a recent Sephora trip, as they did not stock shade N0.
This is more a reminder for me so that when I feel the need to try a new foundation, I can look back at my own photos to see what worked for me and what didn't. I put a dab of each foundation on my arm, bare skin, and brushed it in with a wet/dry brush. They are not blended in, of course, so you can really get an idea of the shade. I went a bit heavy on the Illamasqua CF 115 cream, but the rest I used an equal amount.
**Please note the Cover FX is their Natural Finish Foundation. Sorry I didn't include that in the original post!!**
Note all the brands are cruelty free. Also note the Silk Naturals are the HD cream formula.
And here's the two indirect sunlight / in the shade photos:
Note I did adjust the brightness of these two in Photobucket, by the amount shown below.
I hope you've found these photos helpful, and thanks for looking.

First, I'm well behind in my swatching. I've been on a low buy for what feels like forever, but picked up the Makeup Geek shadows and small Z palette last month using a 15% off orders $50 & up coupon code. I also bought Fyrinnae's pressed Unicorn last week; I'd been patiently awaiting a restock on it.
Shadows swatched over UDPP with foam applicators (because why not give it a try); photos taken outside, no flash.
You know I'm really not one for palettes, so I thought it would just be easier to build my own. Hope you've found the photos helpful, and thanks for looking.
