    yes SM is available in HK - dunno where sorry. Any HK cotters here???

    I'm LSF5.5 - 6 and i wear #03 since #P3 is really pink on me for cream and liquid foundations.

    I'm waiting for my loose powder and concealer to arrive any time soon As for loose powder i got them in #1 & #3 and concealer in #3. Just hope everything will match my skintone

        Thanks, Duckiee. I still have a problem with shades!

        Oh yes, Jep, what's the damage like for the cream foundation and loose powder? It's all right if you have it in AUD.

          Sm is available at joyce beauty in HK.

          Not Jepunnye but Prices should be HK 350 for the loose powder, concealer & the foundations. In australia its AUD $68 for the concealer & loose powder, AUD $ 72 for the cream foundation & liquid foundation, AUD $50 for their pre-makeup cream. hths

          And might i just add that their stuff rocks!! I dont need foundations but am willing to wear his foundations...

          Jepunnye ----> is there much difference between the P shades and O shades? thanks I am lsf 6.5 & i wear concealer in #4 & loose powder in #1 and foundation #1. hmm...weird, maybe i need mecca to re-colour match me again....

            nutty - i'm a yellow base undertone so i can't really go well with pink tones shades. The P stand for PINK and O stand for Ochre/yellow? Anyway, i tried P3 but look pinky on me so i tried 03 and it's ok on me

            Glossie - check for AUD prices

              Stephane Marais Creme foundation sounds good too. Like Glossie, i'm interested in finding out my shade too!

                I've the SM mu base, concealer and loose powder now and waiting for the cream & liq found and the compact powder . (All thanks to a wonderful cotter, who's having fun at Paris atm )

                For reference, I wear GA LSF #4, MAC NC20, Stila ILF 20 Watts, Becca Cashmere LSC, Banana/Praline concealer & stick found, and I used:
                SM Perfect Concealer #2
                Loose Powder #1
                Cream & Liq Found O1 (I think it should match me well as I've the same skintone as my "shoppingbuddy" and she wear these shades)

                Jep: What shade is the loose powder #3?

                Nutty: Concealer #4 and found #1 sounds weird to me too :huh: .

                  seba - how's the MU Base? is it better than LP rose illusion?

                  I haven't receive my concealer and loose powder yet. It's on its way to my mailbox A friend of mine who helped me to buy this is similar fdn shades like me - MAC Nc35, LSF 5.5 so she just get the # that matches her with the help of Mecca SA.

                  She said that loose powder #1 is natural yellow base shades - i tried sample of this and it's wonderful #3 is slightly tinted. According to her, with loose powder #3 i can use this by itself since it's color. I'll review them once it arrives ya!

                    seba ----> how lucky to have someone buy it from paris! are the prices much cheaper there? can you post them please? ohhh the compact powder is fantastic!! but i was told there is very little product in the pressed powder...i wish they came up with refiillable compact powders!

                    yes i know...i think i need to be colour matched do you know the concealer colour is the right colour for you?

                    am actually lsf 6.5 which means i should be a #3 if jepunnye is lsf 5.5-6 takes a #3

                    aiya confusing

                      Dammit. I'm in between all these shades! I can wear Becca Cashmere although it's a tad fairer. Are the SM colours forgiving? The next darker shade in the yellow range is not too dark for a LSF #4 and #5 in-between?

                        Hi Glossie;
                        Sorry I can't help you with the shades, I never saw them in person. A friend of mine share the same coloring as me, so I just got them based on what she uses . I haven't even GET them yet, still on the way .

                        My friend told me these prices:
                        Cream found: 34 euros
                        Liquid: 32
                        Compact Powder: 31
                        I guess this would be cheaper than HK, and definitely from Aussie .

                        I haven't use the Pre-MU Base yet, still finishing my Covermark. I also wanted to wait for the SM found first so I can wear them together .

                          SEBA -->Thanks. Oh yes its much cheaper! You are so lucky to have a friend buy it for you!! Have you tried SM's retractable brush?

                          SM Pre-makeup cream ---> It is great! It just seems to grab on to the foundation and your face looks flawless. But I only sampled it and its pretty mositurising so I dont know if there is a chance of breakouts.

                            Stephane Marais color comparison

                            Not sure if this helps, but I took a pic of myself using SM Cream Foundation #P2 and #O1, in an attempt to compare the colours. However, somehow it turns out looking pretty similar (to me).

                            Currently using #O1 and it seems to match my skin colour decent. I couldn't decide between #O1 and #O2, took #O1 in the end cuz I've heard some people using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser #Nude and LSF #4 match with #O1. Hmm.. difference between #O1 and #O2 is very subtle in my opinion..

                            Just for reference, I use IPSA Protect Liquid Foundation #102, and RMK Creamy Liquid Foundation #102. KP Micro Sheer #10. MSF #2 (too pale though..)

                            <center><img src=""></center>

                            SM Cream Foundation is indeed very heavenly! Might just be my HG! I would describe the finish as satin-ish, and feels truly lightweight. Coverage is lighter than RMK Creamy, thicker than IPSA Protect. Similar to GA MSF, with better oil control IMO.

                            Loving it!
