I had no idea what to expect from the colour, as I'm pale but have a yellowish undertone. I bought a medium, which makes me look tan but not orangey or too fake. You can also just apply a light coat so it's very subtle. When you pour a bit onto the back of your hand the product will appear greenish, but once it blends into the skin, the heat and rubbing motion turns it into the desired foundation colour. Also, it leaves my skin soft, without looking cakey or dry.
