LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! This brush is the softest thing ever. Now I look back at my BE brushes and wonder what I was thinking using those scratchy things on my face. I always have mine in my purse for touchups. It is as great for loose mineral makeup as it is for pressed powders. I need to get another one fro my vanity at home. The only downside is that it takes forever to dry when you wash it.

I love this! I wouldn't say that this has too much sparkle or glitter going on...it has a perfect luminous finish for the summer months. I'm definitely taking this to the beach with me, along with a darker shadow for the crease (the brown that comes with this palette isn't pigmented enough IMO). I really love how gorgeous these colors are, especially when you blend the colors out to a sheer finish...a beautiful and simple daytime look! I'm definitely going back and getting the black, white, grey combo. It's even BOGO at Rite-Aid right now,
I bought 2 of these at a BOGO at Rite-Aid. I have the grey shadow/black liner and pink shadow/brown liner combos. The pink shadow has already detached itself from the packaging. The pink/brown combo worked great for me and lasted all day, but I used it with UDPP and used the pink shadow as a base (like a MAC Paint Pot) for MAC's Wood-Winked shadow. It was a gorgeous look! It took me through a day of soccer games, my son's karate show, and then grilling dinner outside for 10 people! You have to set the liner with a shadow though. I used MAC's pencil brush with the Wood-Winked shadow. The grey/black combo is nice for a quick smokey eye. Again, use UDPP, and then top the grey shadow with a powder shadow (I used MAC's Carbon). These are great for travel. I took a lippie off because the shadow part breaks off easily, but I like the idea of "depotting" it...it will probably glide on better with your fingers warming up the product anyway.
I loved this and was able to achieve the "false lash" effect with this one. One coat was all I needed for beautiful fluttery lashes and a beautiful "wide-awake" eye! I find that it did require a bit of reworking....I always brushed through with a clean mascara wand after application. If I skipped this step, forget it! Maybe if the formula had more silicone in it to combat its tendency to clump, it would get better reviews. A close second for me would be CG LashBlast, but I would definitely repurchase this one.
