Well, I do like this brush. It's soft, it blends well, and it's super cheap! But...that being said, if it wasn't so cheap I wouldn't like it nearly as much. It does tend to shed, and the quality of the actual handle is poor - the metal part has come off of the wood & i've had to glue it back on twice! I bought this a few years ago so maybe it's better made now (i have a white handled brush for reference). Either way, for the price it's a good blusher brush & i'd buy it again (hopefully a better quality one is available now)
So i don't hate this one as much as I hate the flawless application brush, but that's only because at least this one is relatively soft where that one scratches my skin. However, that being said, it sheds, the coverage it gives is strange and uneven and it just seems so cheaply made. I much prefer my Sugar kabuki brush. Again, I got this one for free in my BE kit but I really only use it if i can't find any other brush to use. Not recommended!

cocofabulous stole the words right out of my mouth for this brush! it hurts my face, it sheds EVERYWHERE and it does not blend well. thank god i got it for free w/ my BE kit. will not even use it much less repurchase.
Love this primer!!! This and Cils boaster by Lancome are the best mascara primers ever, although this one is like half the price of Cils! I bought this to use in conjunction with Clinique's High Impact mascara and they work together wonderfully (and are very reasonably priced!). However, once my mascara started to clump/dry on me, this primer was still going strong. I've used it with cheapo drugstore mascaras and it has made them wonderful - smudgeless, and long lasting, and help builds my lashes! I get about 4+ months use out of this primer which is amazing to me! Love it!!!!!
Ok, so (for the price) this is my HG mascara (when combined w/ the lash building primer by Clinique. - I can buy the two for almost the same price as one mascara by another brand, so that in itself is great!) I get great use out of this mascara - no clumping, smudging, and it does actually give my tiny blond lashes curl and length. I only get about 2 months at most before it starts clumping however, so I do have to re-buy although I find that to be the case with any mascara I use. I've never tried it w/o the Clinique primer so I can't review it on its own, but together they are wonderful!!

The product itself wasn't bad, I mean it wasn't impressive either.. BUT OMG the SMELL!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOO GROSS, I like could smell it all night falling asleep and it was making me feel sick, it's the worst thing ever and it doesn't go away!! I could never use it just for the smell, I don't care how well it works.
