I am Korean and I am NW0~NW5.

Even NARS Siberia (By the way, NARS Siberian is NW5~NW10.) is too dark on my skin. I would like try Bobbi Brown 00 Alabaster but they don't import Alabaster in Toronto, Canada (They import upto 0 Porcelain.) so I can't try. I heard that the Bobbi Brown Alabaster has similar shade as NARS Siberian so probably it might not work on my skin.

The only one foundation I use is MAC Face and Body Liquid Foundation in White. It is only in MAC pro store but I like this foundation. If you are too fair and can't find the right shade for foundations, I would recommend this foundation. I think this foundation works well for all skin types. My skin is dry/combination. When I use this foundation, it is not too matte and not too oily. Another good thing about this foundation is that you can mix it with other foundation to get the right shade. Well, actually, this foundation is for this purpose. In my case, I directly put this foundation onto my face though because I am too fair so I don't have to mix it with other foundations.

I would like to try Illamasqua Foundation in 100 and 105 shades because I heard that these shades have similar shades with MAC Face and Body Liquid Foundation or whiter shades. However, it is sad that they don't import in Toronto so I can't try.

NARS Siberian Sheer Glow & Matte is much yellower than BB Alabaster.

Illamasqua ships worldwide from their official site (though not from Sephora); however, the shipping from their site to Toronto is pretty fast (just over a week) and reasonable.
