I- Ivory, B-beige, O- ochre, which are skin undertones. Ivory is the most neutral one, beige has pink undertones, and O has yellow undertones

The I stands for Ivory=neutral
The B stands for Beige=pink
The O stands for Ochre=yellow (though I find these run quite warm and more on the orange/yellow side; also a bit darker than the same numbers in the other two ranges).

Ochre is more yellow-base (think of the NC shade range), while Ivory is more light-neutral, learning toward pink.

I am very sensitive to fragrances. Can you tell me about if this product has a perfume-type of smell? If so, I would need to return it.

I looked like crazy to find the answer to this before ordering, but couldn't. Yes, it does have a perfume-y fragrance -- more than I could tolerate. Shiseido (on the phone) told me it was just the "natural fragrance" of the ingredients, but if you're sensitive you will probably not like it. Too bad, it had great reviews otherwise.

It has really light fragrance on it, smell like a cream. I have really sensitive skin too, but I am ok with this foundation.

What is the lightest shade?
I wear porcelain or alabaster shade in a foundation. A good match for my skin color was Tarte facade but that foundation was discontinued. Which shade of this foundation would work for very pale skin with yellow undertone?

It does contain fragrance as the third to last ingredient. It's fairly mild and not as overbearing as some, but it's there. The sunscreens are octinoxate 2.9% and titanium dioxide 5.2%

If you mean for the Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation I'd go with B20 Natural Light Beige. It's light without being too light, but still adds that hint of color those of us with medium-light skin tones have.

Question
What are the differences between the Shiseido foundations?
I have used Shiseido The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation for several years, and it looks like Shiseido has renamed this or changed their lines. In the summer I use B40 and in the winter B20. What is the difference between Sheer and Perfect vs Shiseido's other liquid foundation options? thanks!
