This came close to being my HG> Except, none of the colors work well for me! That's why I took a couple of lippies off. I am extremely fair, being a natural redhead. I loved that it lasted so well. Gave great coverage and a super high SPF. And it looked like skin. But, I am very light with yellow undertones. SP10, to pink, SP30, right tone, but to dark. Wish it were 2-3 shades lighter. I will use this in summer, when going boating or to the beach. Otherwise will stick to Covergirl Olay Simply Ageless. I agree, Shiseido color selection, leaves something to be desired. Should they add a color that works for me, I'd definitely use it, all the time. It is drying, but I use a good moisture base before I apply, and don't let the moisture absorb, before I apply it. I apply with finger, sponge soaks up way to much product.
