If so, are thre any other pale foundations you would recommend?

I find loads of foundations are too orangy for me and have a cool- pink tone, but pale.

Yes - Max Factor Second Skin foundation in the palest shade. It thinks it's an expensive foundation and performs as such.

I'm sure I use 110 Lancombe, which is a little paler than 101

I use No7 'Intelligent Colour' foundation in light. I haven't bought any for a while, so I assume (hope) they still do it, because it's great! silky and it adjusts to match the colour of your skin. Lovely!

I switched to Bobbi Brown from Lancome, after they stopped making my shade in the foundation I used to buy (had a stampy-foot hissy fit at the counter when they told me that, - 'so I don't exist then?!' grin). I'm not even the palest shade in Bobbi Brown, & I'm seriously white!

I find in Bobbi Brown I am a Porcelain, moving towards warm ivory.

However, I had a sample of thier moisturisng foundation and it seeemed to have zilch coverage- and building it up just gave me a shiny face.

I am " mature" but my skin is unlined and normal ish- gets a bit sensitive in winter/heat but not especially dry.

I tried L'oreal true Match but it has a chalky effect after a while.

Got a sample of Lanosme teint Idole Ultra which is quite nice- could be even paler though.

Not sure how pale the Lancome shade is, but I use the palest No. 7 shade in their Stay Perfect foundation which is Alabaster and is perfect for me. Also find lots of brands palest shade is orange on me mentioning no names Clinique
