Question
What shade is suitable for Asian Skin?
how light is the shade of "clear". From the picture, the "Medium" looks a little darker for me. I am not sure. I am also worrying if I purchase the "clear" shade ,it would be too light for me.

I'm a quarter Chinese with fair skin and the Clear was a little too light for me, as well as had the wrong undertone. My Sephora foundation number is 1R08. Someone mentions this in the reviews, but the colors depicted on the website are MUCH darker than the actual product. Clear is very, very light. The finish on this BB Cream is gorgeous, so I'm ordering the Medium to see if the color works better. I think most Asian people would do best with Medium.

The color swatches on-line are considerably darker than the actual product is in person. I have a medium to light skintone and the medium shade is perfect for me. The light would be way too light. Hope this helps!!!

They are both very sheer. They should show enough of you skin through the pigment that either one could work. It just comes down to whether you want to be a little lighter or a little darker.

I would say yes. I have a few blemishes from time to time and this does a great job of concealing those. I would set it in places you tend to get oily, but other than that, you're good to go.

I was told in the Sephora store that this isn't recommended for oily skin (I have normal to slightly dry in the winter). It is very moisturizing, so if you already have oily skin I can see where it would add to the oil problem.

I'm as oily as they come and this is my favorite. Although it still all depends. I'm oily but I don't have acne or blemishes so I find a lot of BB and CC cream products "melt" into my skin and blend in beautifully. It's honestly my favorite. It does leave you with a glow so if you're concerned about shine you'll want to try Smashbox. But who doesn't want a bit of glow to their skin?

I have light circles (greenish brown not black) and this does even them out with my checks pretty well plus you can add layers to build coverage but it is made to use under makeup. I use this under and highlighting foundation in that area and it covers them.

depends on how you use it i think. you could get a darker shade and just dab some of it under your eyes but...i think you're better off to purchase a separate concealer with spf in it because sun exposure does do a number to the eye area.

Question
using alone or with additional base?
How does this product look alone? Can this BB cream be used alone? (For example like Dr Jarts Detox BB which requires no additional makeup base over top as it covers well enough solo)
Thank you!

I find it works well alone, but it depends how much coverage you want. This product provides minimal coverage but I find it blurs imperfections.
