Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation swatch

I have posted a swatch of most of the base makeup  I have tried and it has been a year since I posted that. In 2013, I think I became a bit paler because I changed my skincare, I started to use SK-II and vitamin C and layering sunscreen.  Unfortunately none of that is fixing my tanned forehead and everything else being a whole shade paler.  I have no idea what to call my skin tone.  I just know I need to mix it and apply strategically to look more even.

I went to my Chantecaille counter to try Future Skin to see if I will like it as much as Belly :)
SA's that work at Mecca Cosmetica are so friendly and nice.

Chantecaille Future Skin Alabaster
Chantecaille Just Skin Bliss (I think this is ever so slightly darker than Camomile)

I think Alabaster looks most natural on my face skin, at least the way I wear it (sheer) it helps to take away some uneven yellow tints around mouth and under eyes and it completely disappears on my cheeks.  I like the tighten effect, my skin feels a bit firmer where I applied it.  I like it because it really looks like skin on good skin days but I can't justify buying it since I don't use foundation often and I still have so much Shu and RBR Highlighting Liquid left.  Camomile and Bliss, kind of look like a peachy cream blush/fake tan on me in natural light so I'm glad I didn't buy anything on the spot and asked for samples.  I think Camomile and Bliss became darker after they dried down and Bliss is a tiny bit darker than Camomile.  This photo is purely for arm skin tone reference.  I don't know what I could be in MAC, maybe one day I'll go near the counter.
