I like Lorac Behind the Scenes (which apparently isn't at Sephora anymore but is at the lorac website) underneath and MUFE HD powder on top. Also, don't use too much of the flash color, just one or two thin layers is best. The powder changes the texture from shiny to matte, but other than that, it's kept it from creasing on me for DAYS (including sleeping in eye makeup).

From a person who actually works for MUFE...Don't use a primer! Put on a layer of the cream, then pack it with a good eye-shadow/ powder. I know instinct says use a primer, but I have tried both ways and not using a primer definitely works!

yes! But the UD primer will not work...you need to put a drop of MUFE Eye Seal underneath and lightly dust HD powder on top...it will not crease and it will stay shiny :)

of course! all you need is some urban decay primer potion (for underneath) and/or powder to set it, either make up for ever HD powder or bare escentuals mineral veil will do the trick!

answer 1
I bought a spatula from MUFE, and would scoop out some colors to put on the back of my palms and then use a thin eyeliner / shadow brush or finger tips to apply the color to my face.
By scooping the color out, it prevents bacteria from contaminating the whole thing... cause this palette will last you a while.

I used a very thin eyeliner brush because I wanted the color as closest to the lashes as possible.

If you're doing fine-detailed work, for face painting, or otherwise, then use a small eye-lining brush. If you need to cover more space, then use a flat shading eyeshadow brush. This will help you to apply the colors more evenly and smoothly. If you're doing your whole face, or more than 1/4 of your face one particular color, I'd recommend using a beauty sponge. (The Sephora brand one is really good!)...Just don't forget to wipe your brushes in between colors to prevent contamination! (You can use a make-up removal wipe or a paper towel and olive oil to remove the grease paint) =)

Brushes made for cream applications work best. Such as eyeliner, lip, complexion brushes. Look for a brush with synthetic bristles that are tight, compact and smooth. Which brush you choose will depend on what look you are trying to achieve. An eyeliner brush will create a thin, clean line, whereas a concealer or foundation brush will apply a lot more product for covering a bigger surface area.

Question
will this product be coming back to Sephora?
The ladies at my local Sephora said they haven't been getting any new MUFE palettes and thought Sephora wasn't going to be carrying them any longer. Is this the case or will there be more coming in stock? if so, when?

I just called their customer service number listed above, and Katrina told me that they are not restocking it ever. She said it was a limited edition item and therefore won't be restocked. Um, ok. :(

I had to go to the Make Up For Ever boutique in Costa Mesa, CA to pick this up. I just bought it a few weeks ago so I don't think they discontinued it.

Question
Does this palette "go bad" or expire?
I am just wondering if this palette has an expiration date. It is very expensive, but everyone says it is worth it because you'll have it forever. We all know nobody has makeup forever, it has to expire sometime. So when does the product expire? That is the only issue holding me back from purchasing this.

Sadly, this is a petroleum based product, but the good news is that will help keep it from going bad quickly. But.... try to use clean tools or fingers or spatulas and that will help keep bacteria count low as well. Best advice:use it, use it, use it

After six months my palette, which had been opened several times but not used regularly (because it is awful) showed signs of drying, and the yellow, green, light blue and peach colors had cracked around the edges and into the center of the pans. There was also a plasticky smell noticeable at the six-month point.

I had been searching for this for months, and On a recent shopping trip asked the counter person, she asked another person working there who said yes they had some, they keep them in the back. Not sure if this is the norm, but I got lucky!

It is not worth the money at all. It is a very strange, poorly edited palette with yucky uneven textures.

It defnitely depends on how much use you think you will get out of them, if you like bright colors then go for it. some colors are great for cheeks and lips too! i love these, so for me i would have probably bought them all seperately (for 12 that would be over $200) but now i can get them all in one case!

Can you really mix any color you want?
These colors look so bright! I'm all about mixing countless colors from a minimal palette, but I don't like to wear bright makeup at all. Is it really possible to mix anything you want from this palette?
