Hmmm. Based on the Sandy Medium, I would recommend Warm Gold. Also, I think most Hispanic skintones fall somewhere in Buttery Gold, Warm Gold. I am pretty sure there is no blue in the formulation for Warm Gold, but maybe the brown oxide is on the cool side...I am trying to figure out where the cool tones you see are coming from. Our Olive is pretty neutral on the warm side, and not very green. Those who are truly Olive toned usually need to add more green. For the concentrated bases, it is sometimes hard to tell exactly where it will fall once diluted with white because the colors dilute out at different rates (red is last, yellow is first). Based upon what you have said that did not work, I think you might want to try Olive, possibly with Yellow Booster. (As for not thinking it is fair that you should have to purchase the Yellow Booster for $2, I am sorry that our line is this way, but we try to keep it streamlined to keep costs for the customer down, yet able to work for the most skintones. By offering the color boosters, we give much more shade flexibility for not a lot more cost added to the bottom line. I think we make up for it that you can purchase the bases as needed whether white, color, or booster as you will not likely be using them up at the same rate.)
If you have a match that works in another company and are pressed for time and money, I would order what is known to work. It might take some time and resources to get a match here, (especially since it was tricky in the past) which might lead to a good deal of frustration. Try again at a later time when resources are a little more relaxed if you want. I do understand about not wanting to support companies for various reasons, but your foundation purchase will not make or break their company, especially if you purchase your other items elsewhere.
I hope you find something that works well for you. And I am more than willing to help if you decide to try Olive.
