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?

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.

some people have sensitive skin that reacts to the ingredients when applied in certain areas. some of makeup colors in the US say it is not meant for eyes or lips, and they are not restricted in UK, EU and AU. I guess it just depends on your assessing body, FDA.

answer 3
Some of the pigments haven't been tested in the US as being eye-safe. You might see similar warnings if you ever purchase loose eyeshadows, they might say 'not mouth-safe'. So since they haven't been tested, there could be anything from no reaction if the product is placed on the eyelid, to redness or scratchiness.

If it's anything like mine, it's the brown that is the culprit. I've had two (I exchanged the first because of the smell) and they have both had this problem, though neither had it at first. The brown has gone rancid. I absolutely love this product and the brown is an absolutely perfect brown, but I have debated scraping it out of the pan to get rid of the stink. Currently, I stuff a bit of tissue over the brown which helps a lot. The smell is not noticeable when wearing it because you use so little of any one color.

That is the normal smell of the wax binder. When this product goes rancid, it will smell sharp and bitter, like bile.

Has anyone used this for creating contour or for other face purposes like concealer?
I'm more interested in daily practical application for this product on the face rather than fantasy uses. Paying over 100 USD after taxes means that I would like to at least use this product for more than eye shadow and lipstick.

I use it for contouring/concealer all the time! It does create a more intense look than highlighters and bronzers and conventional concealers would but I love it! Plus, it looks even more amazing in pictures

I've used it for concealer and contour (though if you're acne prone, I'm not so sure about using it on your face, it's very greasy). I really like it for both, especially as I need a contour color that is more greyish than any I've found. It can take a bit to get the color right so it's not for if you're in a hurry. Some version of pink, brown and white will work for both (add tiny amounts of yellow or aqua to change the tone). It also works great for blush! I'm not a makeup artist, but have painted a bunch.

Woo good. I just wrote a review on this. Yes I use it for contouring. I mix it up with foundation to get it natural though. I said in my review that I use the green with my foundation to get rid of the redness(like the green primers). you can mix up brown and black and bit of white with clear mascara for eye brow tint. you can mix up the corals and pinks and the reds with your foundation to get a nice cheek color.

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!
