It truly depends on the undertone of your skin. If roses, pinks, silver, white, and gem tones flatter you, you are probably "cool" and have a pink undertone. If you are flattered by golds, rusts, browns, and earthy greens, then you are most likely "warm," and have a yellow/olive undertone. Select the one which matches your skintone. If all of the above flatter you, choose either shade.

I would probably say the lightest of all the shades the diffuse. Flash may work but it has somewhat of a pink undertone and if you are very pale it might show up more than you would like. Diffuse would probably look the most natural and compliment your features like your red hair the best. Hope this helped!

I have used it and it does give you that glow without being to shiny or glittery.
I used it ontop of my foundation. It looks great on bare skin when you dont wear much makeup but want a nice glow.

Flash has the most natural appearance as a highlighter and will best accentuate your skin tone.

Flash is always a safe bet will add some Pink sunkissed tones to your skin / it is intense so mix it with a moisturizer.

one can be used to add a bit of color and one can be used as a highlighter. flash will work with pretty much any skin tone if added to foundation.

Your coloring sounds like mine except my eyes are mid-to-dark green. I use Flash, which will balance out the yellow in your skin well. I found the bronze color to be too dark and fake-looking, and the Diffuse color is a sheer white shimmer that would be better for small areas (like inner eye corner and browbone) rather than for the whole face.

I believe it is meant to be mixed into your foundation, but I liked it best when I blended a tiny amount onto my cheeks and brow bone as a highlighter; it really did impart a nice luminizing finish when used this way.

Irina, you use it with your foundation or tinted moisturizer (that's what I use) and all you need is a small squirt! A little goes a long way! You do not want that over glowed look.

You can apply to cheekbones and brow bones for a beautiful sheen, or mix with your moisturizer or foundation for an all-over glow.

I personally love Diffuse. I have pale skin and it really adds the shimmer that I love on my cheekbones, brow bone, and inner corners of my eyes. It's a great product that will last forever, seeing as how you only need a little :)

The ingredients that would cause a great deal of skin irritation (to those suffering from highly sensitized skin), are as follows: glycerin, magnesium aluminum silicate, safflower seed oil, phospholipids, titanium, iron oxides, and, for those with an allergy, remember it contains green tea and gingko!

My younger sister is fair skinned as well and I use "Glow" on her and it looks amazing right now since it is the summer time and she has a bit of a tan (you know, that lovely post-burn kind). However, if you stay pretty fair I would suggest going with "Flash" as opposed to "Diffuse" as the latter ends up looking like you used a not-so-flattering frosty eyeshadow.

No sparkles at all! It's more of a pearlescent, luminizing finish - no glitter involved :)

The "sparkle" in this product is not an actual chunk of glitter.
It is subtle, and you must blend with your foundation to achieve the look of luminescence. Remember to chose based on your actual skin tone, not that of a look you want, after say, a week in Florida. Tan's fade, and the lighter the color of the product, the more natural your "sparkle" will be.

For darker skin tones, you should avoid Diffuse altogether. It will make your skin look cakey or ashy. Flash works pretty well, but Glow is especially nice, since it adds a warmth to your face, like you just spent the day at the beach. Very nice.

ingredients on box contain oil???
The description says oil free on the website but in the store when i read the box it contains oil.Hmmm. I noticed a lot of Smashbox products say oil free but have a weird oil feel and separate in heat into a liquid mess. Im hoping for a more emulsified texture and may go with either the Lorac or Clinique.
