I feel like it's more yellow when you first squeeze it out of the tube, and then ends up more of a neutral. The lightest shade is actually slightly too pale for me and I'm like freaky Casper white, like I add white color corrector to every other foundation I've ever owned. So if you aren't frightening vampire pale you might even want to try shade 2.

Wow, yeah, I might actually need shade 2 then! Thanks for the tip. I always seem to fall somewhere between the 1st and 2nd shades in foundation lines. The lightest WnW Coverall Cream is a little too pale for me, but the 2nd shade of the Too Faced Beauty Balm is a little too dark.

Yeah, the lightest Too Faced BB is still a bit too dark for me. I haven't tried the Wet n Wild Coverall because the talc, but this thread makes me want to so much.

I'm really happy with the Flower BB cream. I'm really pale and the lightest shade works beautifully on me. I agree with jessilikewhoa... it's really mattifying and does a good job of evening out my skintone without being full-coverage. I also tend to be oily and this does a good job of not making the problem worse. It also doesn't break me out, which is pretty amazing. Totally worth a try if you're into BB creams.

For Aussies, NZers, and peeps from the UK: I tried the Natio BB cream in medium and I really like it. This is the first BB I've tried, it went on well, felt a bit like foundation but not too heavy.

I've been using this one for a couple of months (but the fair shade). I didn't love it at first, but it was my first BB cream and I think I didn't know what to expect/do with it, but I like it now. I pretty much just wear this and concealer (for a couple of scars as well as any trouble spots) every day instead of foundation, and it's way easier. It was also pretty much the best purchase ever for travelling- anything that cuts down the amount of shiitake I lug around in my bag is a major winner for me.

They didn't have the Natio BB Cream in my supermarket! Just foundation and tinted moisturiser :(
