Anyone familiar w/MUFE HD foundation colors?

the sa at sephora tested a couple shades on me and said 117 was the best match. i agreed w/her. however it was dark outside already and store lighting can sometimes make things look different ime. now that i'm home and it's bright and sunny outside, i think it's actually a smidgen too light. i'm not using it all over my face, just around my nose and a little on my cheeks to cover some redness. i *think* 120 was actually lighter than 118. can anyone confirm this before i order?
eta: maybe i should stick w/ 117 in case it oxidizes? i have combo skin.

the numbering for MUFE HD foundation isn't the usual system where the higher # = darker the shade. Some shades are yellow based while some are pink, olive, or neutral (beige) based so that is why some shades might look lighter than another shade even though you think Oh the number is higher, so it must be darker! From what I remember though, 118 was lighter than 120 I was considering shades from 118 to 127 and I ruled out 118 right away b/c it was too pink and light for me. It might have looked darker b/c 120 has stronger yellow undertones making the color look darker than 118 which has beige undertones.

thank you, carol. i actually found swatches here. http://karlasugar.net/2008/08/mufe-hd-foundation/
plus, i feel silly for asking now because 117 looks perfect. after about an hour, it was totally undetectable.

eta: actually, i see some yellowness; it doesn't look like it's a 100% match to my undertones. i might have to try 115.

hmmm 118 isn't too pink in my opinion

I think I can use 117 or 118, and I am about NC20 in MAC terms.

^ oh no, I didn't mean it was pink. I meant it was too pink for ME since it has neutral/beige undertones rather than yellow. It looked a little ashy on me.
