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!

Mine came with direction. It looks like use the make up stick to draw on the different part of the face then blend.

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.

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.

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.

You can definitely use this on dry, sensitive skin. It moisturizes the skin too, and the creamy texture glides and blends on smoothly while giving it a natural finish.

What color do I chose?
I've used Laura Mercier Stick foundation in Medium for a long time and can't get it anymore. I can't tell by the pictures which color to choose in this product.My hair is Dark alburn with green eyes. My skintone is not real light but not dark either. It's uneven and ruddy. I need good coverage that doesn't look to thick.

I used the LM stick in medium also, and so disappointed to see it discontinued. However, the good news is that the Shiseido stick is great! The colors are a little tricky, but I found that the color #140 works for me. It's a similar color, but not exactly like the LM stick. I carried the LM stick around to the various makeup counters to try to match it, but of course none of them are exactly the same. I'm happy with this, hope you will be too. You may want to go to a makeup counter and see the selection for yourself.

Shade Question
I'm very fair and have pink undertones in my skin. The Bobbi Brown foundation stick in alabaster is a perfect match for me but they don't carry Bobbi Brown at the Sephora nearest me anymore. Do you think the lightest shade (100) would be pale enough for me and does it have pink undertones? Heres a pic of me from like 3 years ago lol sry its one of the only pics I have were I'm not wearing any foundation.

I haven't tried the Bobbi Brown one in Alabaster but looked at it too when I bought this one online as I have same skin tone, etc. as you - I just started using this in the Very Light Ivory & it blends in pretty well (I have been blending it with a tad bit of a lighter mineral foundation I have but think it would fine on its own also). I may try the Bobbi Brown one next if you recommend it. Hope this helps!

I wear Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Alabaster. I tried Shisheido's make up stick in Very Light Ivory, and I had to return it because it was really, really dark. It doesn't work as a substitute for the Bobbi Brown. Sorry!

answer 1
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.
