Question
What skintones does this work for?

I would say this is for pale to fair-medium. If you have tanned skin it may be too light. I have an oily t-zone and don't have issue with that.

Definitely light to medium skin tones. I have a medium skincolor with dark olive skin tones in the summer and more fair skin in the winter. This stuff works great year round for me!! I use the Water Fuse in the Winter the most. It has light coverage but is great on my dry winter skin. I love the Black Label Detox and Renewalist as well for more of a medium-full coverage. I can not speak for people of African American skin but do know its fantastic for everything else in between. This stuff was developed in Asia where there is a wide array of skin tone from pale to dark. Also this stuff seams to blend seamlessly to match my skin tone no matter if i am winter pale or summer bronzed. Hope this helps! Best to get the whole kit and find out which ones work best for you :)

I'm fairly light, with some ruddy spots and it seemed really light when i put it on, but it kinda soaks in and leaves a sheer coverage. I've never been one to be able to 'match' my skin tone with foundation, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Unless your skin is light, I think this tinting will be too light for your skin (which is too bad, because Dr Jart is a fabulous product!)

I would not recommend this for African skin as Dr. Jart was originally aimed for Asian women. Overall, it's pretty chalky looking due to the amount of SPF so it gives faces a pretty pallid tone. I normally use it as a base and then use powder foundation that matches my skin tone over it.

I would definitely say NO. All four of these are very light. I'm extremely fair and the colors work for me. But, even though they blend in a bit, I don't think they'd work for anyone with medium to dark skin.

Is there no selection of shades?

answer 1
No, there is no selection of shades. Honestly, if you are pale to fair-medium and don't have a lot of yellow tones in your skin, this should work great. Just remember it will go on kind of thick and stark, but give it a few minutes and it automatically adjusts to your skin color. I don't know how it does it...but it does. It is so amazing. But, if you have a nice tan...this will be way too light. I used to sun bathe, but after hitting my 30's I don't spend much time in the sun, so this is why I was able to start using this product.

You don't need much of this stuff. One of the little tubes in the sample pack lasted me a month.

No, there is not. Each BB cream has a slightly different color when swatched on the skin but all of them seem to blend into my light-medium skin tone seamlessly and flawlessly. Each has a different level of coverage as well. On me, the Water Fuse has a light amount of coverage whereas the Renewalist and Black Label Detox have medium-full coverage. And each of them provide a different beauty benefit. Best to get the whole set of 4 and see which one you love the most. I use all 4 of them... each for different seasons and occasions. Hope this has helped you. Best of luck finding the perfect BB cream for you :)

No selection. Dr. Jart BB creams are "universal" shades that tend to be best for lighter skin tones. They can cast a grey tint if used too heavily on ultra fair skin :/

But generally they are meant to blend with most fair to medium skin tones, though as I said, the fairer complexions work best.

The Dr. Jart BB creams in Asia vary slightly in shade based on the label. One has a pinkish tint, one a yellowish... you see. The stateside versions don't noticeably vary.

If you are seeking BB creams with color options, check out Smashbox, Clinique, Dior . . . almost all the others. Dr. Jart is the original, but nearly everyone has introduced a version for Western audiences. Best of luck!

Question
Would you mix them?
I SO want to like these BB Creams by Dr. Jart. I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin and rosacea on top of that. I went to my local store and tried the Water Fuse (blue tube) but the color was too orangy for my pale skin. Then I tried the Detox (black tube) and it was too pale, I looked pasty. I'm wondering if I got this set, could I blend the different formulas (and colors) and come out with the right shade for me and still have all the benefits of the Dr. Jart BB Cream?

I don't see why not. I blend the black tube with the yellow tube and it works just fine. The only one I would be leery of mixing is the water fuse (blue tube) because the consistency is different than the others. Hope this helps! I love this stuff and it has done wonders for my skin.

You could. Or, you could put a little bronzer on your forehead, nose, and chin and then some blush on your cheeks to get a little color. If the the bronzer is too much, I just do the blush and I look like I have a healthy glow.

Difference
Other than the SPF which is clearly listed, the descriptions of the different BBs are very similar. Is there somewhere where I can read the differences between the BBs easily?

The short rundown:

PREMIUM - has a very high SPF and collagen-boosting anti-aging properties.
WATER FUSE - ultra moisurising formula you can feel; the most dewy-looking.
DETOX - purifying for blemish-prone complexions, shrinking pores and resolving discoloration.
RENEWALIST - has specia! specific brightening properties for dull skin, and anti-aging collagen-boosting features.

All of this is in addition to the basic skin-smoothing, SPF protection, pore refining, and evened skin tone that feature in all formulas.

Note that they all come in "universal" shades and provide a lighter coverage than a foundation.

Question
Will these be restocked?
I put these in my shopping cart yesterday, and was sad to see that they were out of stock when I went to make my purchase today. Were these limited items or will they be restocked? If so, do we have any idea of when?

Also, I don't see a place to click for an email reminder when the will be back in stock, which makes me think they won't. :(

I have good news! I emailed Sephora and they replied saying that the set WILL be restocked. It is on order and due at their warehouse on 12/13/12. They did not explain why there was no alert button.

What now bugs me is that I can't use my VIB gift card towards it, because it expires on 12/11. Nice.

At least we know it's coming back! Stock up quickly, because it previously sold out in a mere month! It's a cool-looking set for us BB cream aficionados. :)

Question
Shades the same?
As these are 4 different types of dr jarts bb cream, Are they exactly the same color shade as each other or do they differentiate slightly as I already have the premium however the shade isn't quite right so I'd be happy to experiment if so..
Also does this create a white ghostly appearance in photos?

Beautypedia.com lists which brands do and do not test on animals. But, this brand is listed as "unknown" for animal testing probably because it's not based in the U.S.
