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.

on The Makeup Stick Foundation
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.
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.
