I love my new Smashbox foundation brush so much I want to marry it! I've never used a foundation brush before, but they get such good MUA reviews, I thought I'd try one. I used it today for the first time, and I love how it works. I had to use very little foundation to get the coverage I like; there was neither dragging nor streaks; and the brush was very soft against my face. I have a feeling this brush will be one of the best high-end purchases I've made yet! EDIT: I returned this in favor of the cheapie-but-great EoB foundation brush from CVS!
MAC NW15 to 20, hazel/green eyes, medium brown hair with a little gray (LOL), slightly dry skin all over: I received this soap in a swap. I had requested it because I love any kind of bath/shower stuff that's minty, and I like the mintiness to be very strong, clear, and sharp. This soap has none of those attributes. The mint smell is dull, and it's dark brown color looks terrible among my other soaps. I wouldn't purchase this soap. I'll stick with products in The Healing Garden Mintherapy line instead.
