I bought this a few YEARS back and most of it is still there, I use it a few times a week and it's great! I say the best way to use it, is to first brush across cheeks then use whatever is left on the brush for a sweep on the rest of your face. I think the packaging doesn't work though, but im not complaining, i can live with it.
This stuff is very good. SUPER shimmery. I have had it for 5 years (no joke) and there is still TONS left. A tiny bit goes a long way. Very glamourous.
