NC30 Asian

I truly don't believe i'm an NC30, i go out of my way and visit several MAC locations to get colour-matched for the right foundation shade. When i ask an available MA, without truly looking at my complexion, they always reach for NC30. Are MAC associates just trained in a way that "if an asian asks for a colour match, the default colour is always NC30"?Two of my (asian) friends who are COMPLETELY different complexions/tone as me are also "NC30"... i find that hard to believe especially if you were to see us in a line-up... we are all clearly VERY different shades...

so... why are MAC MAs so inclined to automatically reach for NC30?!?!?!

ps: HK collection haul to be up soon (just procrastinating)

lol the first concealer i got from mac was NC30, but recently, i went to the to mac at the sq1 the bay counter and i was matched to the NC25. now i'm thinking i'm too pale, so maybe NC30 is for me. But both my older sisters have NC30 as well..

the only studio fix the MA tried on me was NC 30 lol but for some reason I think I'm a little bit more pale than that

Really? When I went to my mac store they said I was NC 25 which surprised me because I like because I thought since I was asian I was NC 30.
