Here's my thoughts on the colors, that I've actually tried in all three of Guerlain's Foundations.
Beige Clair-has tinest bit of pink, fairly light, but not quite light enough for the very pale, however you may get by using a translucent setting powder to lighten it up a bit.
Beige Natural-is more for a medium, yellow based skin tone (no pink here).
Rose Natural-I wouldn't say that it has pink, but more of a really warm-medium color and my favorite (I'm light-medium), because it really brightens my face up and I was able to lighten it easily with translucent setting powder. I apply very lightly with a sponge and get good coverage. You'll get even more coverage using a brush.
I've not used any of the other colors (afraid these might be too beigey/orange on me, but hope this info will at least help some from having to order so many times like I did....

I originally ordered the No. 2 color, but that was too dark for my fair skin which is very fair with neutral undertones. The No. 1, or lightest choice, works well for me, however. If the color choice is listed as a neutral, you can be sure that it is truly neutral, if that helps you at all.
