Why did you choose Creme?
I love the way cremes look on the skin! Completely natural finish with build-able coverage. I especially like to use them with highlighting & contouring because they are SO easy to blend. The consistency also gives you tons of control so you can place it exactly where you want it.
The most important thing to keep in mind when using a creme is that you want to start with clean (exfoliated) & moisturized skin to get the best possible application.

What colors should I pick?
While it might seem a little overwhelming to pick 4 colors it’s actually quite simple!
I’ll break it down for you here but I’ll also be showing examples of women and what they wear to help you decide.
(I’ll be posting lots of these on instagram so be sure to follow along! @maskcaracosmetics)
Finally, if you’re still not sure, don’t stress too much. We can always exchange it if you don’t get it right the first time!

Blush
As far as the blush goes that’s just personal preference all three look beautiful on EVERYONE.
Dahlia: (similar to Shortcake from generation one) Is a hot pink that goes on looking fresh and bright.
Pink Grapefruit: (similar to Princess Peach) Is a warmer more muted pink
Ruby: (similar to Jem) Is a deeper red raspberry pink.

Highlight Foundation
Linen: (similar to the highlight from the Light compact) Linen is best for fair skin tones & skin without a lot of red undertones.
Sunlit: (similar to the highlight from the medium compact) This is my most common color! Goes best with anyone in the medium ranges or fair skin with red undertones.
Wheat: (similar to the highlight from the dark compact) Best for dark skin tones or anyone with heavy red undertones.

Contour Foundation
Walnut: This contour has less warmth so it generally works best on fair to medium skin tones.
Stone: This color is warmer and darker and is perfect for medium to dark skin tones

(I’m usually right in the medium tones with all of my foundation purchases and I can actually wear both of these colors. If I’m using self tanner that day I’ll go with the stone if I’m not I’ll need the walnut. I have found each contour can go a on wide range of faces!

Contour Creme
Shadow: This baby is SO AWESOME! It’s dark and gray so it shouldn’t be used as foundation but as a contour creme which is why I call it “The Detailer” it creates the perfect shadow when used in detail areas with a light hand and a small brush. For those of you who have never been able to ace the nose HAC this is your new best friend! It’s the color that makes all the difference from looking like you have dirt on your nose to looking like it’s just straighter and thinner. I can’t warn you enough though it’s a heavy duty color. If you use too much you’re gonna look a little bit dead:)

    I have a question, I ordered when the first generation came out and LOVED the way it looked, but it seemed to just wipe off and float on my skin. I don’t typically have that problem with foundation (currently using urban decay naked) . Has the formula been changed in a way that May keep that issue from happening or is it just mainly more customizable now? Thank you!!!

      YES! One of the main things I wanted from this formula change was better all day wear. This formula is less “oily” than generation one so I’m thinking you won’t have that problem with the new one!

      With a description of “super duper fair” Linen is going to be your best option as sunlit is darker. But it she said she’ll do exchanges so if you get Linen and feel like it’s lighter than you want, you can exchange it for sunlit.

          I’m also really fair and the blonde looks like me when I’m tanned as well. None of the colors look light enough. I’m also a Cait- we should start a “Cait’s that are pale” support group.

            hello ladies of the cait’s that are pale support group! 🙂 I have used this product on literally hundreds of women and I have yet to find one who was to fair for the Walnut & the Linen. I know they look like they have a lot of color and they do but the contour is cool enough that it looks natural and soft on the face and you don’t have you use much! The linen looks darker than it is when compared to pure white (on the swatches) it looks gorgeous on really fair ladies! Hope this helps!

    Cara- will you tell us more about the brush? Maybe compare it to some other brushes, either just in description or bonus points if you do some side-by-side pics with some other brushes. I specifically need some help deciding whether to go for your brush too or if I’ll essentially be duplicating the IT dual ended foundation brush.

      Ok so here’s the main difference (and if I can find my IT brush I’ll do some comparisons for you as well) My brush is smaller on the large end and larger on the small end. Does that make sense? It’s also a longer wand. The quality is the same:)

    Oh, one more question – I never see you mention the difference between cool vs warm toned skin. Even your fair skinned models look more warm toned… I assume in part because of your love of tanner? Anyway, could you help a cool and fair toned sister out and talk about this more? Would love to see more cool toned models and you mention this when discussing make-up colors (both yours and your recs). Thanks so much!

          I am olive too! Sunlit and stone does look gorgeous on medium olive skin tones. The stone does have warmth in it but I think it’s complimentary and nice as long as your about medium tan. Any fairer than that and I’d go for walnut. The new site has lots of faces to compare as well and I’ll be posting more so hopefully you’ll find one you see yourself in!

      Yes, I was glad she said that too, because I’m very fair but my face has lots of red undertones. I tried the light from the first generation and aside from the texture problems, I never felt the color worked that great for me. I was planning on trying medium next time, but that definitely confirmed it.

    Cara!! This all looks so amazing! Congrats on coming out with what looks like an awesome product once again! With the first generation of IIID, I noticed that after a few hours of wear, the foundation would become kind of slick on my face and start to slide around; it looked a bit like a layer on top of my skin as opposed to settling into my skin. I do not have particularly oily skin at all, I currently use BB Cream as my foundation and never have this problem. I was just wondering if there have been any chemical changes to the formula of this generation of foundations. Can’t wait to try your new product and the brush!!

    Thanks!

    I’d like to see a list of ingredients for each item before purchasing. Is the formulation different than the first generation product and if so, how is it different? Also, like others, I’m curious to hear more about the brush. And I’m confused about the contour cream. Do you choose this in place of one of the contour foundations? If not, how does it fit in the compact if you are already getting the two foundation colors, illuminator, and blush?

      January 7, 2015 at 11:44 am

      From what I understand, you do NOT want to use the creme in place of the foundation. The contour foundation is your all around contour, while the contour creme adds detail.

      Some people didn’t feel like the contour showed up enough everywhere on their face with the old HAC pack, so the creme could add more contour/detail on the nose, or under your cheek bones, but she says you do not want to use too much!

      All five will not fit in the compact, either order all five and swap them in and out as needed, or skip one! Maybe the blush because you already have a blush you love, or maybe the creme because you thought you got enough contour with the old HAC pack, and would therefore be fine with just the contour foundation!

        Rachel, I’ll get a list of ingredients and the products ready as well and the differences are : The new product is longer lasting and more pigmented. It also has a creamier consistancy and is less oily than the first generation. It’s a completely different formulation but it’s still a creme.

      Somebody please correct me if I am wrong, but from what I gather the contour foundation will be your go too, full face contouring “device”, so you definitely want to get one of those.

      The contour cream is more of an “extra”, for getting more detailed/dark contour in a few places (ie: your nose). So the highlight and the contour foundation would be the items similar to the old HAC pack.

      The blush, illuminator and contour cream are all extras, to make things look even better!

    Do the individual refills fit into the old compact from the first generation? If I would just like to buy a highlight foundation and the new contour crème, do they just come in the individual trays or do I need to buy the whole 4-pack, plus the contour crème separate?

    • Reply
      Jaime
      January 7, 2015 at 10:17 am

      From what it says, it sounds like you can buy any 4 inserts that you want with the compact for $42. That means if all you wanted were the highlight and the contour, you could buy 2 of each (four total) or any combination of 4 that your little heart desires.

      For example, I found that I went through the highlighter faster than the contour in her original compact and I also have tons of illuminator left over so I don’t need any of that. I plan on buying 2 highlighter, 1 contour foundation and 1 contour cream as my 4 total inserts. I already have a blush that I love so I don’t need that, either.

    Cara, I’m very excited about this new product! I have a couple questions, please. 1) I’m usually a medium, but I have pink undertones. The medium foundation (Sunlit) apppears yellowish and the light foundation (Linen) appears pinkish. Which foundation would you recommend for me? 2) The compact holds 4 products, but there are 5 above: Blush, Highlight Foundation, Illuminator, Contour Foundation and Contour Creme. Is there no way to have all 5 in one compact? And are there no a la carte refills in the Contour Foundation and Contour Creme? I want all 5, so can you help me understand how/what I should order, please?

    Thank you so much! I’m excited to get this ordered and get it!

      From everything I am reading there is definitely no way to have all 5 fit in one compact. What I will do, if I decide to purchase all 5, is purchase four in my $42 pack, and the final one in the a la carte section – and swap them around in my case as I need (maybe I don’t use one as much as the others, and I’ll leave that sitting with the rest of my make-up at home until I need it).

      She does only mention foundation, illuminator & blush as available for a la carte, but I assume she means both foundations, which would only leave the contour creme out. As that would be odd for only one not to be available in a la carte, I assume it was just a typo/mistake.

      Just in case the creme isn’t available a la carte, I would make sure to order it in your pack, and order your 5th one as an item she listed as available individually (ie: the blush). Hope this helps!

    I’m so excited to get this in my hands. My old HAC pack is almost gone and the case is broke in half and I’m thrilled to see this new line. AND. A. BRUSH!! Love it. I too would like to see a video showing how you use the kit. I know you’ve explained HAC before but I’d love one specific to this new product. Interested to see if we can skip the foundation and just use the shadow, like I’ve been doing or if this darker color for shadow isn’t going to be great without foundation. I’ve liked the results with my nose contouring before but always struggle with cheeks. I’m not sure I’m getting the placement correct and it doesn’t seem to show up as well. Thanks!!!!

      She’s not necessarily recommending that you get 5, though I’m sure each product is awesome, and as she created them, I’m sure she highly recommends all of them.

      If you already have a blush you love, you could skip getting the blush. Or if you don’t think you need a more detailed contouring, skip the creme!

      However, if you think you would love them all, I’d get all five and just leave the one you don’t use the most, at home. I plan to either skip the blush, or order all five and swap them out. I could see myself rotating the blush and the creme in and out of the compact, but keeping the highlight, contour foundation and illuminator in at all times.

        You’re so sweet! My blush right now is a powder. I didn’t order the first round, so I’m wondering if a powder blush would screw up the finish?

        I was also thinking to myself, well maybe I want more than one blush color anyway… So, I probably will just end up rotating.

    Nice work, Cara! This looks awesome!! I can’t wait to get my hands on a new compact that I can customize to my needs. I think that was a genius move on your part. I do have a question regarding old stock. Will you be selling what’s left (if any)of the last generation illuminator?? I love that stuff and actually think I would prefer it in liquid form vs cream, so I would like to stock up on it before it disappears if that is possible. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into your product. 🙂

    Question about the contours: so we shouldn’t use the contour creme as a foundation. Soo pretty much we would just be using that on the nose and not the cheeks and forehead?? Right?

      You would not want it as an all around, but you can use it wherever you need a little more contour.

      If I get the creme, I would possibly use it on my nose, but could see myself mainly using it under my cheek bones – just a tiny bit of it! With the old hac pack I couldn’t always get the contour to look quite how I wanted under my cheek bones, and I think the creme would really help!

    The ladies look lovely. I would’ve loved to see some more/different models with different skintones though. I usually don’t mind at all, but I can’t actually walk into a store and swatch these on my skin so it would’ve been lovely to see someone darker up there as well. 🙂 Maybe next time?

Last night she started to put up a fwe more photos with new IIID – one was a gorgeous African American lady with a fairly deep skintone, showing the Wheat. Way darker than I would have imagined Wheat would go, anyway – but daaang did she look radiant and amazing! I think she was on Cara’s Insta (as opposed to Maskcara). Check it out, see if that helps at all!

    Cara- I already have Princess Peach blush and think it’s great for blush and lip color too! I also have the illuminator, but I’m pretty clueless how to apply it. I think I tried once, and it didn’t look right, so it’s just sitting in my makeup bag. Have I missed a tutorial? I’ve tried your index and I just can’t seem to find one. Does it go over the blush? Right under the eyes? Nose? Can you (or anybody else in the comments) help me out!

      The illuminated is meant to go on places that the light would naturally hit and you want to be extra glowy, usually along the top of your cheekbones, under your brows (on the brow bone), the Cupid’s bow above your lip. Hope that helps!

    I’m so excited about this! I have a question though-I’m starting up as a makeup artist and would love to use these as the foundations in my kit. I used the first generation and loved it. Could I leave out the blush and highlighter and just get 4 foundations/contours in my palette? It would be the most cost effective for me and I would love to share the product with clients. I was also curious if you’ve considered offering a pro discount? I’m a licensed cosmotologist.

    I noticed on the makeovers you’ve been doing with your new HAC products, you’ve put foundation on first and used the HAC products on top of the foundation. That’s a big change from your original line which was used in place of foundation. So my question is, do we need to use foundation and HAC?

      I noticed that too, but noticed Cara made super-quick mention that she was using the extra layer specifically because the model was going to get photos taken. I took that to mean that in real life you would just use the IIID, as before! Does that make sense? Watch it again, see if you come to the same conclusion! 🙂

    I have yellow undertones in my skin, but usually am either one or two tones away from the fairest, so certainly not a medium girl! Would walnut be too light or ashy? Would stone be too warm for my skin? I was planning on getting the sunlit highlighter, if that helps because yellow toned highlighters look best on me!

      I asked this same question on Cara’s instagram, and she said that she would recommend the Walnut. Said it was close to the previous Medium contour, but worked much better on lighter skin! So I would definitely say Walnut and Sunlit! That seems to be the color combo most like her “old” Medium compact, which she could use on almost anyone!

    Okay, sorry if someone has already asked this, but: What if you are super, super, duper, light AND have red undertones?

    Actually, I don’t know if it’s so much red undertones as it is ACNE. 🙁 Either way I need something that cuts the red. Think porcelain skin + red acne scaring. I know that a darker color will probably help with my acne, but I’m tired of having to wear foundation all the way to my chest just so I look natural. And it really doesn’t look natural when I miss a spot and it becomes obvious that my skin tone is lighter than my make up. It needs to be close enough to my natural color and give me a lot of coverage.

    What should I do? Which of your products would I order? Would they work for me?

    I’m curious as to how much you will have to clean the brush used to apply IIID ?? Kind of the whole point on this is to simplify HACing and not have to go through so many steps. I’m just wondering if I will have to deep clean the brush every day and then just wind up spending any extra time gained on cleaning??

With the first generation HAC, I felt like the product just settled on the top layer of my skin and I could not get it to rub in completely, even with the sugar exfoliation and lots of moisturizer (I am very dry especially this time of year). Will this new formula be better suited to that? I’d love to try it, but don’t want to have the same effect as I did with the first HAC. Thanks for your help!

Would you recommend the Sunlight or linen? I wasn’t really happy with either the fair or medium tones with the old version. They seemed to float on the surface of my skin without really blending in.

However, I’ve been using the “light” combo of your last generation, and the contour color doesn’t show up on my skin at all. It’s strange, because it looks so dark and it’s obviously like a million shades darker than my skin, but it just doesn’t show up for some reason. I can only contour my nose with it, and I’m not sure if it even shows up. Every time I try to contour my cheek line, it’s as if I didn’t put on any makeup there at all. Maybe this is a consistency problem, and not a color problem?

      i found the same thing with the first generation too! I’m basically see-through pale but the dark didn’t really show up. There’s only 2 contour colours this time though, and the lighter one is closer to the medium contour shade from the original foundation kit so that’s what I’m planning on going with 🙂 Plus I think she said she added more pigment this time so it should show up better. So excited.
      Linen and Walnut!

    For me I want the Linen, Walnut, and Dahlia! I want everything, but that would be my 1st pick for this new generation. 🙂 The colors are beautiful and perfect! Congratulations again, Cara the Incredible! You just keep sizzling cuz that’s what you do. Sizzle sizzle! Razzle dazzle!! 😉

    Hi Cara! Super excited about trying to the new (and improved) III-D pack! Couple questions about the foundation… I have yellow undertones, and am a light olive skin tone. Some foundations tend to turn my face orange. I am currently using Too Faced BB cream in Vanilla Glow. I’m looking for a change, and am excited about your product. I’m leaning towards the Linen, but not sure if that’s going to be a good match. Thoughts? Also, is there a contour color you’d recommend? I know it’s hard to tell without seeing a picture, but any help/advice would be great!

    I know your product does not ship internationally, but will it ship to APO addresses?
    Thanks in advance, and congrats on the launch tonight! 😉

    I’m hoping to place an order, but had just a couple of questions…. I have usually used Studio Fix by MAC just because the coverage and length of time it lasts is unreal. Do you think that I could get the same type of coverage and quality of lasting with your IIID foundation? I’m really hoping that it holds up to the same standard, because it looks amazing! Also, is the brush synthetic or real hair?
    Thanks!
