I have this in Light Sand and Light-Medium Neutral. I kept both because actually both colors look good on me... maybe I am between them ... these are beautiful shades for a person with light skin with yellow undertones, but more specifically "cooler yellow" or "light olive yellow" undertones... these have no peach or "warm yellow" to them. Yay! And Light-Medium neutral is to my eye more in the yellow/olive range - usually things called "neutral" pull pink/beige on me, esp. around jawline, but this "neutral" does not go pink/beige at all. If you are looking for light olive shades, really do look at these. Unfortunately, I can't seem to make the formula work for more than 2 hours without flaking and breaking up on my nose and cheeks. I have normal to combination skin. This shows flakes I didn't know I had, pores, and breaks up on my nose where it gets streaky and patchy letting my pinkish nose skin show through like on the tip (bad!). With my normal foundation brush, and another I tried, it seems to grab and not spread well for me. I get a better result over bare skin, applied with fingers (leaving off my daily vitamin C serum and sunscreen, which I really prefer to use because I can't put on a thick enough layer of this to really suffice as my sole sunscreen). But even over bare skin I am only getting a couple hours before I am unhappy with how it looks in a mirror. I continue to try to make it work, using it for shorter weekend outings rather than work, because the colors are SO very nice! I think I need to try out a special primer?? Or a different type of sunscreen?? Otherwise, I get my best result from Urban Decay Naked HD in shade 3.0, which does not break up or show flakes on me, I just wish it was a quarter-shade more olive (4.0 has the light olive I want, but is a bit too dark for me, thus the quest for foundation).
