MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC5, NC10, NW10, N4 with Comparison Swatches

I bought NC5 the moment it was released without doing too much investigation. I heard a lighter shade than NC10, YES! Well, it turns out, it's not actually lighter. It's a different undertone. It basically just looks darker and more golden. So, I got myself together and recorded a lot of swatches, demos and review / wear test so you can see how these shades stack up against each other as well as compared to a ton of other things in my collection.

For reference, my closest shade match is Colourpop No Filter Foundation in Fair 05.
