No 7 Tinted moisturiser, I wish to purchase it with my Boots £5 off voucher but am I fair or medium?

I am not fair skinned, more olive but still a light olive, so am I fair or medium? Worried the medium will be too dark but the fair too light? Maybe I need both?!

I would say medium as the light is very light. I am fair skinned but use light in the winter and medium in the summer. Isn't there a tester for you to try?

I tried them both, but was thinking I was somewhere inbetween, maybe I'll get the medium if the fair one is very light.

I would go for medium to give a healthy glow rather than a deathly pallour

Get the medium and if it's too dark mix in a little moisturiser

Yes I would definitely rather have a healthy glow! I've always felt comfortable with my skin naked, never worn any foundation etc but as hitting my mid thirties thought I needed to start using something. Strangely scared/intimidated by the make up counters/assistants though blush So plan this time is to choose one, run in, grab tube, run to checkout, job done. grin

Is the tinted moisturiser any good? I'm getting to the end of my Clinque Almost Make Up which I love but costs £20!
