I'm an NW45 and I use whatever looks good on me, I don't know the product's name off bat, but I try things out, and mix n match if I have to...
it's like perfume, smells good on/to one person, but not to the next

Re: NW 45/47 and up... faves??

I couldn't possible list everything. I'm NC45 and I tend to think I can work anything to my advantage. Meaning I don't have a color that I have to stay away from when it comes to eyeshadows or blush. On the other hand, lipgloss is a cruel game to me. It's not the lipstick because if there is a slight problem with the tint of the color, i can change it with the lipgloss. So my lips are a major problem me (Hence, my title of Queen of Pink Nudes).

I'm an NW 47 in MAC. I have this unfortunate predicament of coming off on whoever I hug/touch cheeks with because--1) I'm oily and 2) I sweat when I'm hot. I wanna go try MUFE HD Liquid Foundation. On the site (both their website and on Sephora), and I seem to match close to #180..They claim to offer a flawless coverage like those on celebs..What I'm wondering is who's tried this- whatever shade you are) but specifically skintones like the one I am? How is it working for you? What are your pros and cons? I'd really appreciate responses.....Thanks! Ciao, bellas!

I am EXTREMELY oily. I like both the MUFE HD and Mat + Velvet. Mac foundations do not work for me.... the only one that never broke me out was Studio Stick.

I think 180 would be the right color for you. I am NW 45-47 and I use 180. I have yet to find a foundation that does not transfer. The HD has great coverage. I still have to use blot powder during the day.

Pros: Great coverage, feels very lightweight on your skin, great for my sensitive skin

Cons: None that I can think of.

I use Soba as a highlight sometimes. It has a little shimmer. So if I want a matte highlight I use Malt.

Re: NW 45/47 and up... faves??

I love all of the MUFE foundations but especially mat velvet (heart) 'cause it is great for my oily skin. I am also a big fan of the cover fx foundations... they say full coverage, they are full coverage (no building needed.. no joke) + they have a great shade range. Not a big fan of MAC foundations, they just don't mix with my skin or my undertones.

Oooh and I love all the golden toned MSF's, warmed, gold spill, global goddess ect...
