The best thing you can do regarding which shade or product to choose, is to go to a Sephora if one is near you. The consultants there are trained to help customers pick perfect shades and the right products, addressing each issue the customer might have. Sometimes what has been suggested to me has been surprising, but they're always right. Having someone on a review board suggest a shade or product is based on someone else's perspective never having seen you or your skin.
If there is not a Sephora near you, I suggest you call the 877-SEPHORA toll free line and they'll also be pleased to give you a phone consultation. This way you can get something perfectly suited to what you need, and not what someone reviewing here happens to personally favor for themselves. The Sephora consultants are much more objective and can deal with all sorts of skin conditions and issues and shade selections much better than any of us can, when it deals with specific issues.
The return policy is excellent if there is a problem with a product. However, if a consultant helps, either on the phone or in person, problems in shade selection are rare.
Hope this helps.

I have very fair skin so i ordered the lightest shade, although in the summer i get a little tan so i can either a a little warmth (included) to my fair foundation or i can use the next shade that the kit comes with( the kits come with 2 shades)

I would definately go to the mall for this one. They have so many different undertones that you might just end up ordering the wrong one for your skin color. The ones with the neutral undertones is usually good for caucasian skin, but my friend used it because her face was tanned, and it turned out orange. so beware!

because bareminerals is a powder foundation you can't really go too wrong. i have an olive complexion and the medium beige was perfect for me but medium or lights would work on most skin tones. the beauty of the minerals is they are super blendable- so you can 2+ shades under or over.

I went to the mall and the sales lady tested the shade on my neck.
