Gonna piggyback off this and ask if you're familiar with what the colors look like irl and which you might recommend? And if it matter, in my case the makeup is the Ben Nye mix because I'm having a hell of a time finding material that looks good with it.

Thank you so much, Schweigie. This actually helps out a lot. At least for me. It at least gives me an idea since I did mix the Ben Nye. If it doesn't match I can get more paint and just let my friends have my mixed stuff or something.

I'm not very aware of many AUs so could you guys help me find some mid-skill ones? Nothing like fancy tier or Militarystuck. I've looked at streetstuck and it's the only one ive liked so far. Thanks in advance!

Oh, very useful! That also pretty much made the paint brand decision for me, too. I was leaning towards the Ben Nye anyways, a friend used Snazaroo and it made such a mess! It took all four of us in our group a good hour to get it on just her face and neck properly, and it was all over the hotel bathroom, I felt so badly for the cleaning staff.

Also that God Tier Jade dress is LOVELY <333 So flouncy!

Sorry to poke into the conversation here, but if it took you that long to get the Snazaroo on, you probably weren't doing it right. It's an easy mistake to make, I didn't know how to at first either.

You have to use only a very small amount of water and make sure you're using the Snazaroo brand sponges or it won't go on properly. If you use this method, it's pretty quick and even and easy to apply.

I haven't personally used Ben Nye but from what I've heard, IMHO Snazaroo is better. You don't even have to seal it if you've put it on right but a light coating of hairspray to seal it doesn't hurt on areas like the hands. Plus it's a LOT cheaper than Ben Nye and one pot of it has lasted me about 20 uses for the low cost of £3.

(Example of me wearing Snazaroo to see how nice it looks: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3342410/
I haven't touched up the skin on this image at all and I put all of the base paint on in probably about 30 minutes. Including my whole arms, face and neck.)

Glad that past link was of some help to you guys. For any further comparisons I found this gem a few days ago: here

When it comes to unmixed Ben Nye grey and Snazaroo, I lean very heavily towards Snazaroo just for the lighter color. I have yet to use either, but based on a few pictures I've seen Snazaroo paint seems to look a bit grainy(if that's the right word), rough, and patchy. In short, from what I've seen, Ben Nye seems to offer more coverage. Though that really could just be an issue of how it is applied.

Oh man, this is actually a pretty difficult decision because I am hearing so many good and bad things about both paints.

For those of you who use Snazaroo, how would you compare it to Mehron CremeBlend make-up? I use the Mehron for my Rainbow drinker Kanaya (the white), but I was thinking of doing her normal skin (aka gray).

For that matter, has anyone tried Mehron's light gray make-up?

Wow everyone seems to have completely different things to say about the body paints! Now I am hopelessly confused ;~;

I think I actually kind of like the darker shade of grey better personally? It might be because of my vision problems regarding certain colors, but it looks a little more accurate to me?
