Are there any booths you guys want us to check out?  I'll try to check this thread before I go tomorrow, and if I get responses before Zadi leaves, I'll try to get a message out to her to interview a few booths today.  Let us know!

Have you found a foundation pale enough for you? It's always a pain to match up, even for me because i have such odd undertones lol.

No not yet lol. I've purchased a few white color correctors to add to my existing foundations, but they all are either way too thick or like water and kind of ruin the integrity of my actual foundation. Hoping one day someone pulls though for us pale girls and makes a regular product suitable for our coloring haha

Sugarpill I'm going to try to get near the end of the day tomorrow, because their line was crazzzay long.  I know Zadi bought some of the LE color though lol

I'll try to save an arm and swatch the fairest foundations I can find on it.  None of them will match me, and my arm is tanner than my face, but maybe swatch pics will help you guys out.  at least to compare with each other?  Is there a type of formula that you've found to be easier to find for your skintone? (liquid, powder, cream, airbrush, etc)

Oh I'm not worried about swatches..I'm a light almost medium and just try to use color correctors as a base, then a bb cream for summer. Fairest of all would benefit more from swatches than me. It's just my undertones that tripped me up for the longest time. That's why I asked about Mehron and Graftobian, because I just ordered some of their products for the first time and am excited to see what else they had. Got a small discount, thanks to IMATS weekend.

Thank you for offering to do that! I usually prefer liquid formulas, but am always open to trying new things. The lightest color most companies seem to produce are for around NC 20 skin tones (Mac, MUFE, Lancome, etc), but I'm about an N05-N10. My skin tone doesn't really lean pink or yellow, if anything it's closer to pale gray or slightly blue-ish. Foundations with the slightest bit of color one way or the other either make me look like an oompa loompa or sunburned haha. 

To give you a good example this is what my skin looks like normally, compared to the last time I paid Mac a visit and they put NC20 makeup on me

I have on my Twitter and FB the pic of new LE from Sugarpill. There was approximately 400 (give or take) brought to IMATS. I'm harassing Amy to make it part of her permanent line. We had "dinner" at the social put on by a different forum so I was able to spend time with her in a relaxed setting. I do have a Sugarpill scoop about the palettes - specifically the giant one I've been harassing her for two years to release - though which I'll post about tomorrow as I'm ready to get into bed and sleep.

Found a pic posted online of the Urban Decay naked foundation. Unfortunately they all look dark and yellow based just like all their previous face products

yeah I only got to swatch one foundation (Mehron's Celebre HD) which looked super light, but I have samples of Urban Decay, simply perfect, and OCC's lightest colors that I got so I could swatch when it was a bit calmer.  (A few brands really didn't get light enough so I didn't really bother with them.)

The Mehron pamphlet has a very fair skinned girl on the cover, and these were the two lightest colors on my skin (kept the pamphlet and my white dress in the background for comparison.

Aww thank you!! :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" /> I know quite a few people who's coloring changes with the seasons. It has to be more of a pain to color match throughout the year though haha

Thank you SO SO much for taking the time to do that! I have never heard of Mehron's Celebre HD before but wow, it looks really promising! It's super light without strong pink or yellow undertones. I will definitely be looking them up. Can't wait to ee the other swatches as well :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

[SIZE=medium]This post made my day! I too am pale as snow, and it is impossible for me to find anything that matches up. So thank you so much for those swatches. I have wanted to see that brand in person for some time now. I’ll post a photo of myself to show you my skin tones as well. Also, did you see the Coastal Scents 252 Palette; is it as vibrant as shown online in person? Many thanks. PS. Excuse the beer, but that's the best natural lighting shot I came across off hand.[/SIZE]

You're another Snow White! I emailed David from OCC for opinions on foundations for you ladies from his line. Annelle actually has the 252 so she'll be able to give you more insight on that.
