The light shade is probably going to be too dark for many fair complexioned, but it was a good match for my fair but warmer toned skin. It does have a yellow tone to it, and as you can see from when I rubbed the white cloth over my arm, it's on the darker side.
"Let me qualify this by saying I no longer use this product. But it was my HG foundation in the 80's when my oily, acne-prone skin was at its most evil. I was compelled to write when I saw all the negative reviews here. This gives you a completely flawless finish if you know how to apply it. The secret is to exfoliate in the shower/bath thoroughly, then moisturizer (oil-free, of course), shake the bottle very well, and (finally) pour about a quarter size puddle into your palms. Rub your palms to together and then apply."Ah, good times, good times. Those were the days when I would have to wash my face as soon as I got home from school because it was so oily. But, back to the L'Oreal Magic B.B. cream: color me surprised, but I'm liking this! It retails for about $8-$11 depending on location, and I will continue using it.
