    I use estee lauder foundation and I have really pale skin too but its liquid :\
    I used to use mousse but I wouldn't reccomend it tbh I think you constantly have to top it up and it dried out my skin. You should probably try no7 though, thats what I used to use.
    Whatever you pick don't go for benefit its just too dark

    i also have super pale skin, usually, i just moisturise but for make-up occassions, try the porcelean dream matt mousse, and the porclean shimmer (especially the shimmer its sooo perdy) sort of china dollish...

    Prescriptives do an amazing range of shades for varying skin tones and undertones. Their foundations are around £22 and can be bought in most larger John Lewis and House of Frasers.

    Lilylolo mineral foundation is quite good £12 for a massive sifter tub. You can buy samples for 99p to make sure it's a good match against your skin tone.

    You should check out the nice variation of foundations available at Lancome Paris displays! (They're in Boots and Debenhams and places like that). I know exactly how you feel about being pale but not finding a foundation light enough, but I use the Photogenic Lumessence Liquid Foundation in shade 001 'Porcelain' and it's fab. Pretty expensive though at £24 (I think), but you get what you pay for plus you don't need to use loads of it in one application so it lasts AGES; I've had mine for over 5 months and there's still just under half the bottle left.

    GOSH Cosmetics also do nice porcelain foundations, too!

    I'm ridiculously pale too. Foundations that have worked best for me are Lily Lolo (in Blondie or Porcelain), No7 Essential Moisture, Max Factor Colour Adapt, and Max Factor Miracle Touch (all in the lightest shades available).

    DON'T get the Maybelline mousse as one user suggested above; the range of shades in cheaper brands is often not extensive enough, and unless you have perfect skin to begin with, mousse foundations only show up what you want to hide (spots, dry patches...).

    I think OLay do quite pale colours don't they? I'm almost sure they do and they are not an expensive brand so worth a go. Have you ever tried just an illuminator instead? I have really pale skin too but never really wear foundation. I use Almays Healthy Glow but there are lots of illuminators and they look fab on your skin!

    I'm really pale - Ivory concealer is too dark for me! I swear by a Mac liquid foundation called Mineralize Satinfinish in NC15. Then I use face powder by B in Burlesque. They look really natural.

    Prescriptives. Great because they offer pale shades that are matched the undertones in your skin too. Go along to a counter in a department store and get a free make over. In fact thats my advice for finding the best foundation for you.
