Smile Ben Nye body paint, and where can I buy it?

I have a friend who has used Ben Nye's body paints before, but the stuff she used looked greasy and rubbed off throughout the day, so I'm kind of doubting it was Ben Nye. Where can I buy the body paint stuff most cosplayers use? Snazaroo has done me well, but it feels so dry and rubs off so badly through the day. :c

You can find products at Stage Makeup Online, or a brick and mortar costume/specialty makeup store if you have one in your area. I know the trick shop in the next town from me carries Ben Nye. I wouldn't use Amazon in this case because I've heard most, if not all, of the products there are counterfeit.

Seconding this entire post, especially the last part. Ben Nye is only sold by select websites, and Amazon and eBay are not on the list! They're either counterfeit (which may be what your friend got) or resellers, which is against their agreement with Ben Nye (if they have one), and just generally bad juju. I buy my Ben Nye products from a store called Encore. They're a chain store, so there might be one in your area, but they are few and far between.

On a side-note, Kryolan is regarded as being on the same level as Ben Nye, so if you find Kryolan instead, it might be worth a try. I think it's slightly more expensive than Ben Nye though, I can't remember.
