Foundation for Pale Skin SWATCHES

Hello lovelies :]]

A while ago I did a blog post on different foundations that I've tried. 
I didn't do any swatches, but decided this morning that before I throw some of the darker colours away I should do some quickly!

Here are the foundations that I own at the moment:
 From left to right: 
Maybelline Dreamy Creamy - Light Porcelain (4)
Natural Collection Colour  - Porcelain
Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral - Porcelain (008)
Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral - Ivory (010) 
Max Factor Lasting Performance - Natural Beige (106) (tester, so did not chose colour)
Bourgjois Healthy Mix - Vanille Clair - (51)
Gosh X-Ceptional Wear - Porcelain (11)
Revlon Colorstay - Ivory 110

Here are the swatches on my arm in the same order as above:

Ok, so you can see from the swatches that some brands 
*cough* yes, maybelline I do mean you *cough*
 don't know what Ivory or Porcelain are!
I went for about half a year at least LOVING Bourjois, 
but I just tried it today and it made me look orange! How is that even possible!?!?! :P

And then I loved Revlon Colorstay for ages, and it is the PERFECT colour...BUT it doesn't last on my skin. :( It melted by my nose (where my face is oiliest) :(( It is super sad cos I did love it.

Then I got Gosh X-Ceptional on a whim, and even though it isn't quite pale enough;
 it doesn't matter. It lasts and looks nice and natural :D

Do any of you struggle to find the perfect shade of foundation?
Do any of you lovely pale girls have a (cheap) foundation I should try?
