Diorskin shade advice

Can any users of Diorskin Nude Hydrating Foundation advise on shades, please, as I can't find a colour chart anywhere and want to buy from eBay.

I've got pale (but not ghostly pale) skin and mousey blonde hair. My skin tone is odd - partly yellow, partly pinkish & very translucent. I don't tan but I do go a darker yellow / goldeny colour without burning & get nose freckles. I usually wear bareEscentuals and can wear either Fairly Light or Fairly Medium just as easily - the fairly light is a closer 'true' match but the fairly medium makes me look healthier.

What diorskin shade do you think I'd be? I was thinking either light beige or linen but not sure...

I don't know if it helps at all, but I have used the powder version and 001 was just about pale enough for me. I am a very fair skinned blonde and find the majority of foundations are too dark, for example I like the paler end of Nicola Roberts Dainty Doll range.

Is 001 ivory? I don't think I'm as pale as that - definitely more towards darker blonde than ice blonde / red
