The tone really depends on what kind of hyper pigmentation you want to help diminish - I would speak to a rep that is familiar with how the product was developed and intended for use. I am fair and thought tone one is what I would obviously need, but based on my need the Lancome Rep I spoke with for my first purchase really recommended tone two (medium).
I would suggest you to go for medium (type 2). Because the darker your skin, the higher the pigmentation in your skin. A dark spot will have extra concentrated pigment on the area of dark spot. So, using a Type 2 (medium) for your skin will definitely work better compared to Type 1(light). I would say Type 2 will have higher curing/correcting tendency than Type 1. I have the same problem as yours, too. I am between dark and medium. I tried sample of Type 1 from Lancome gift. It worked a little but Type 3 is working much more effectively, for me.

I wear the same shade and brand of makeup as you. I tried the Medium and it works great.
