Probably better on the MUB but I am a bit more comfy here, I broke the Pantone matcher at Sephora++

Well, didn't *break* it, but got the lowest possible/palest colour score the thing does. 1y01. >.<

So I have computer proof it's IMPOSSIBLE to find cosmetics that match me as well as ANY blemishes (right now ALL OVER. OMG how terrible are EAR ZITS?!) are like shining beacons in the snow. LOL. *sigh*

I don't actually wear SS (I rarely leave the house) but white cast clearly is not an issue, heh.

Sooo... Any other pasty white skinboarders? What kinda stuff do you use for redness?

Any white (physical only, please, chems make me rashy) sunscreens to recommend?

I am too white for dept store foundations, but LOVE Almia, if you're up for a mineral/powder...++jamesie8/14/2013 11:01PM

I had a bad experience with retail MMU but! +subgirl8/14/2013 11:11PM

Meow Cosmetics is an indie m/u company with very pale shades. They also have a white to mix in. ++vancandy8/14/2013 11:33PM

I'd recommend the Meow Cosmetics. Better quality and wear for me than any "commercial" MMUmbminx8/15/2013 8:13AM

I have dry (& fuzzy) skin that hasn't done well w/ the 2 I've tried but I'm always in for samples txsubgirl8/14/2013 11:51PM

Someone on the board has a great np for pale skins. I just can't remember who!!denvergal8/14/2013 10:33PM

Ahhh! Well if you remember let me know LOL :Dsubgirl8/14/2013 11:05PM

Reformulated? Boo!junomacguff8/15/2013 12:19AM

Zuzu Luxe has a very pale foundation. You can get it at Whole Foods.lisamims18/14/2013 10:49PM

I'll take a look. I always pause by their cosmetics in store but haven't swatched any. Thx!subgirl8/14/2013 11:12PM

I got 9 matches & immediately could rule out 6 for being too dark IRL. >.< subgirl8/14/2013 10:41PM

+laurenli8/14/2013 10:51PM

Thx! The Kat Von D is all hilariously dark on me++subgirl8/14/2013 11:20PM

Hmm. I'm at a loss. +laurenli8/14/2013 11:50PM

Awww! Yeah I think it was CoverFX ++subgirl8/15/2013 12:44AM

Replenix ss spray is colorless. I think BurnOut's are, too.frckls8/14/2013 10:19PM

I actually meant that I like, or at least am pale enough that white cast doesn't matter+subgirl8/14/2013 11:26PM

pbi: I'm pale and use both these, the BurnOut Eco-Sensitive and the Replenix sheer physical spraygingerrama8/15/2013 2:23PM

and both are untinted; for a rough list of all-physical sunscreens, inc. which are untinted++gingerrama8/15/2013 2:25PM

Well IIRC you asked for physical, no? The ones board like here are Replenix, BurnOut and SCPF. +frckls8/15/2013 1:03AM

Ahhh I see. I assumed an assumption, is that double negative or twice as bad? +subgirl8/15/2013 4:42AM

I haven't tried SCPF, but I heard is tinted and if I'm not mistaken, suits NC/W15-20. I suppose +frckls8/15/2013 7:13AM

MUB would know more, but I think some people lighten their foundation by using something called +mariqueen8/14/2013 10:06PM

Yep. Have the ManicPanic, it's really powdery, just got the Illa one+subgirl8/14/2013 10:34PM

Cassi0peia just mentioned Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. I've looked into SSE before and +mariqueen8/14/2013 10:40PM

I keep hearing about it. I think SpaceNK has KA? I'll have to pop by & see, thx for the info.subgirl8/14/2013 11:22PM

yup, illamasqua also makes an all white foundation for mixing ++cassi0peia8/14/2013 10:26PM

I will look for more sample options for the Keromask. I was looking at a place in LA I think+subgirl8/15/2013 12:56AM

also keromask sells sample kits for $8 + shipping so it should be less than 30 to try ++cassi0peia8/15/2013 12:07AM

the pro full coverage is for sale on their website to non-pros if that helps! good luck!cassi0peia8/14/2013 11:53PM

I think MAC also has a white foundation.mariqueen8/14/2013 10:21PM
