Any "dupe" for Lancome's "buff 4" foundation?

I got colormatched at a lancome counter today, and I match Buff 4 C and Buff 210 N pretty darn well.Problem is of course, they cost quite a pretty penny for them.... talking like 45 dollars a piece. x:.... Anyone know a good foundation that mimics these shades at all?

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Check the Temptalia website. There's a foundation matrix which matches shades from different brands.

Just tried. Seems I keep:

"Oops, something went wrong.
Something bad happened. Don't worry, though. The Spreadsheets Team has been notified and we'll get right on it. "

....Plus, they ask me questions to which I don't know the exact answer of. *Shrug*

I've never tried the Lancome brand of foundation, so I'm not exactly sure what color/finish it is. There are, however, a few drugstore foundations that I know and love, and maybe you could try your hand at matching yourself. Here's a lovely tutorial that's really helped me when picking a foundation from the drugstore~

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv_V8tcJQoM (This channel also has such a great variety of helpful makeup tips)

I really recommend Revlon foundations. The Colorstay line is my favorite, along with Colorstay Whipped. Look up some opinions on the best drugstore foundations for heavy coverage, light coverage, etc.

Also, most American drugstores allow you to return or exchange a new foundation if it turns out being the wrong color. Ask the workers there about their return policy.

Good luck!

EDIT: I also use a website that PSY-chan mentioned, but it's called Findation. http://findation.com/
That may be your best bet ouo

Hmmm. Samples would help because you can test against other brands. I've always eyeballed foundations, and it seems to work.
Buff 4C is a rosy- toned foundation. MAC NW20 or 25 might work. Sorry I can't be of more help...

Lol, you are more help than you know, especially everywhere else I have looked for it. .... This is a hard question, I know. I was hoping I would have a fellow skin-matcher here. s:.... I seriously appreciate the help. I DO however, have samples of both with me, but I am not at the store to try just yet....again. I tried once, no luck. Trying again tomorrow, and was just hooooooping that there would be someone who could make this accurate for me. s:.... Oh well. Thanks as always PSY. c:

Whoa, whoops, I completely, completely missed your post up there. xD.... I just watched the video. Yeah, I was acccccctually trying that at CVS today. s:.... I am going to have to test my luck at Target tomorrow. I been hearing Revlon and Rimmel from different people for foundation, so I will give them a shot probably. s:....

And that Findation site gave me a few matches when I put in the 210 and the 4 in there, so I will be on the prowl to see if I can find these and see if they match. c:.... Thanks Stocking.
