Change the font formatting for certain levels in MS Word multilevel lists

In MS Word (2010), I've finally figured out how to create a custom multilevel list (which by the way combines bullets and numbering). I've also determined that the formatting of the bullets only for certain levels can be changed by the following:

    Home tab > Multilevel Lists > Define New Multilevel List > Click
      level to be changed > Font > Select desired formatting

Note different colored bullets in levels 3 But now how do I change the formatting for the accompanying text in those certain levels?

I tried changing the formatting in a given line first and then:

    R-Click > Styles > Update List Paragraph to Match Selection

but doing that just changes the formatting for all levels. I also tried:

    Open Styles panel > R-Click List Paragraph > Modify > Format > 
      Font > Select desired formatting

but that also changes the formatting for all levels.

If someone could provide (a specific) explanation for how to modify the text formatting in certain levels only, I would be very grateful.

What I do is create a corresponding paragraph style for each level of the list (ex. MyLev1, MyLev2, etc.).

Then you can modify the font for the styles you want to change
