I got a new foundation the other day. I ended up getting Diorskin Fluide in 100 (I really should´t have bought it, since it has so strong fragrance but at least the smell wears of in about 2 hours and I can´t really toss it when it´s pretty expensive).

The thing is it made me realise how extremely pale I am under my freckles, firs I thought that I had gotten a too pale color, but it isn´t paler than my skin, it´s actually quite yellow. Finally I realised that since it does such a good job at neutralise the redness in my skin and tone down some of my freckles that I for once see the true color of my skin and that´s VERY, VERY PALE. I think it will takes some time getting used to, but it does make me look good (a little like a porcelain doll from a little distance). You learn something new everyday i guess


I wonder if I will be able to wear this later in the summer when a get a little color (very little, but at least I get a little bit darker than an aspirin
). And the reason for buying this was that I wanted someting not so heavy to wear in the summer. I really was looking for Cliniques gentle light foundation and powder (the new t/m was to dark for me), and actually went to an other town to get this, only to find that they had stopped selling it

Enjoy your foundation,in the summer you can just use a pin drop of bronzer to add some color.

hehe, I know that porcelain doll feeling, about half of the brands of foundation I've tried, their lightest color is too dark for me .... I don't really mind my face being pale as long as I can find mu that looks good on me, but now that it's summer, I'm again reminded of how blindingly white my legs are .... but I guess that's I get for choosing a major that requires me to spend all day in the computer labs! lol Back in high school I actually had a little tan from playing sports ...

i had that foundation (in the same color, too) and it was SO heavily fragranced, i gave it away, not caring how much it was, and the person i gave it to ended up throwing it out because it was gross.

i thought it was a bit pale on me.

Glad you found a great match!!


It's better to be pale and have your foundation match than to be pale and wearing a foundation that's too dark. I've had the same experience as you - I didn't realize how light my skin had become until I saw my current foundation was too dark and I got the right color. I was like DANG, LOL!! Still, it's not so bad.
