I used the "20" in Lancome foundation, and took a chance with the "20" Shiseido brand. It was a perfect match!

I don't know about the MAC color, but I am also fair with pink/blue undertones. I usually wear the lightest or second to lightest shades (except with Bobbi Brown I am warm sand). Anyway, the I 00 is perfect for me (very light ivory).

I apply to small areas of my face at a time and quickly blend in with the Sephora #55 Pro Airbrush. It provides flawless coverage and looks very natural. Love this stuff!

I just "draw" a few lines (1 across each cheek, 1 down my nose, 1 across my forehead and a small dash on my chin). Then, I blend it onto my face w// a foundation brush. Any synthetic brush will do. My favorite happens to be the Shiseido Foundation brush which I got talked into buying a few years ago when I was re-purchasing the Stick Foundation but I ended up actually really liking it! I've also tried using a Beauty Blender to apply but the dampness of the sponge sheered this already sheer formula too much. You can also apply w/ your fingers.

I use my fingers, but a makeup sponge would also work. I stroke a small amount on my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin -- then blend. This product can be layered, and I usually put a second stroke on my cheeks close to my nose, where I have a bit of redness. Love this product!

Question
Is this for normal to dry skin?
I've read that this is a matte finish and is good for oily complexions, but can it be used for normal to dry complexions? Also, most people say they blend it with their fingers, can it be applied with the beauty blender?

I have normal to dry skin, and this makeup stick works beautifully. It is moist and quite gentle. It is easy to blend with fingers or a blending tool... I prefer my fingers, but have used both. It seems that finding the right color is the hardest part.

I have used this on and off for a few years and I had to stop because it was making my face really oily. I can see this product making acne worse. I just purchased Marc Jacobs foundation, it's the only one of its kind, it contains a gel so it sets very well on the skin. it doesn't make my face oily at all. So far its been great.

This brand is all over the place with their colors. I purchased the lightest shade possible and it was too dark. If you really want this product, your best bet is to buy in in-store. I would not risk buying it online.

The best answer I can give you is if you are unsure of a shade, I would buy two or three shades, test each of them at home or go to a Sephora and have them help you, then return the others that don't match. I have not had to do this yet but I have had thoughts of going about this method. Whether trying at home or at Sephora, either way you will still be able to return the shades that don't match, by mail or in store.

It's really hard to choose a shade over the Internet. It's definitely best to go to a Sephora store and try the shades in person. I've learned never to go by the colors on a computer screen.

Question
I'm very fair with pink undertones; how fair should I go here? Shiseido caters to the Asian market who often seeks the lightest shade.
Tone is very fair with pink undertones. Hair is golden brown. Eyes are deep, dark brown. Brows are light brown and rather thin but normal. I use richer reds and browns for lip colors, or simply plain nudes. No in between lip colors.

What is strange is, I have light olive tone skin with yellow undertones and I purchased the lightest shade possible because I wanted to use it to do some contouring. It was almost a perfect match to my own skin color. I also read another review where this happened to someone else. The lightest shade will be too dark, if you have very fair skin. Keep that in mind when purchasing. Other than that, I love this foundation.

answer 2
I am fair (but not very fair) and I bought the lightest stick with yellow undertones (because I buy into Bobbi Brown's theory that yellow undertones are the most flattering to most people). I tested a lot of colors when I was choosing in my local Sephora. These colors are not really heavy, and they are really blendable, so they are pretty forgiving. So I would say yes, go with the lightest.

As far as being long-lasting, I usually touch up around my nose once during the day. That's it! It doesn't cake up or crease up like some other foundations I have used, no matter HOW expensive they are. This is an easy product to build up in specific areas if you desire.

Hi, It is very long lasting if you don't always rub your face. I have allergies and I am always blowing my nose, so it tends to rub off my nose, but everywhere else on my face, it seems to stay on.

this v. Sun Protection Stick Foundation

answer 1
The sun protection stick is much heavier and somewhat sticky feeling. The colors also seem to be more orange-appearing, and it will oxidize on the skin. It's great if you are going to be in the sun all day and want to add a little extra SPF without going makeup-free, but for every day use the regular stick foundations are much more comfortable to wear.

The Makeup Stick Foundation is considered more of a makeup while offering you some type of sun protection with the SPF 15-18. It gives a medium coverage with a natural finish and moisturizes the skin as well. While the Sun Protection Stick Foundation is primarily a sun protecting product that gives a sheer to light coverage of makeup. With also a higher SPF of 35, the Sun Protection Stick also fights dryness, resists perspiration and water and it contains antioxidants to help fight free radicals.
