I tried two shades--3.25 (described as a "light with neutral undertone") and 4.0 (described as a "medium-light with soft warm undertone"), neither of which was a perfect fit, but a 60/40 ratio worked for me. It is easier for me to wear 3.25 than 4.0, because 4.0 is very yellow and makes my skin appear significantly yellow in tone. I thought there was no way 3.25 could be the right color, but it dries down darker--the difference in color at dry down is a bit more severe than I normally get when a foundation goes from liquid to totally dry and matte. It didn't seem to oxidize over time on my skin, even after 10 hours, but it seems to be a fairly common experience by those who have tried it, so it's something to keep in mind (it sounds like sampling this is a must). I wore this ten times, including outdoors (it's been somewhat humid, in the low 100s here) for brief periods, like running errands or walking a few blocks, as well as for a few walks around the neighborhood (more like high 80s to low 90s in temperature).
