I wear MUFE HD in 173, NC 45, NW43,Mineralized Powder in Dark,  and Bobbi Brown in Almond ( my color changes when it feels like it depending on the weather LOL) Also I have Loreal HIP in Mocha that has been discontinued....This color is a PERFECT match for me.

What color would you Ladies suggest in Black Opal. I want to try it but IDK...would Beautiful Bronze be a good color to try ladies????

Ooohh!   Thanks ladies.  I tried the RCS in 'Caramel 400 (Oily/Comb)' and it was about a perfect match.   I was really curious about the Loreal stuff, so I may just try the 'Nut Brown'.   I may need to try the Black Opal? stick also. 

For pressed powder, I use Covergirl Translucent Honey, and just got the Revlon Photoready in Translucent.  For concealer, I use the Coastal Scents in 'Dark' and also the Coastal Scents 'Camo Quad'.  I'm still trying to get the right color-mix for it, but I like the coverage.

Thanks Roxie!  I have wayyyyyy exceeded my make-up budge these last couple of weeks and the BOGO sales aren't helping *sigh*.  But anywho, next time I order from Coastal Scents, I may try it.   Hopefully they won't come out with a new pallette anytime soon.  Cry

LOL

Me too girl LOL

I really want to try the Photoready but I'm so tired of turning every
CVS \ Rite Aid \ Walgreens upside down looking for my color so I may try the Coastal Scents until Revlon releases more colors. I was skeptical at first but Simplyounique said ST-11 was a perfect match

Do you like the Photoready in Translucent?? I never looked into the powders because they look so white I don't know how they'd go on on skin of color

I actually like the Translucent.   To me, it doesn't take away or even really add anything to the color, more softens the look.    I used a translucent color years ago and liked the look so it was nice that this one is working out.   I may post a pic in the FOTD so you can see it. 

And I so agree... i'm done running around looking for my color.  I'll just be happy with the ColorStay and Translucent powder for now.  LOL


ETA:  I should probably add also... the Photoready Translucent has a slight shimmer to it.  It's not heavy or even really noticeable, but it does have a little twinkle and sparkle.  I'm not a glitter girl, so if it was a lot it would bother me.   This is a nice soft shimmer.
