I LOVE this eyeliner, I use it just about every day. It goes on really nicely and wears very well. It's super creamy and easy to apply. It came with a brush that works pretty decently, but I like to use an angled brush that has a longer handle :) I think the packaging is really cute, I just hope the lids stay tight enough to keep the product from drying out.

I want to love this product, it makes my skin look beautiful, I love the natural finish. But if I even start to sweat, it makes my face itch like crazy. I hear the bismuth does that to some people. I still have a bunch of it, so maybe I'll wear in the winter, when my pores aren't constantly wide open.
I actually love this brush. I use it for putting on my liquid foundation, and it gives me a very light, perfectly blended application, which is exactly what I'm looking for. If you want filter coverage, this brush is not for you. I think it would be great for applying blushes that are really pigmented, so I think i'm going to pick up another one for that. For 3 bucks, how can you beat that?
I bought this on a whim, and am so glad I did. I apply it with E.L.F.'s stippling brush, and the finish is beautiful. I have pretty decent skin, but I do have a lot of hyperpigmentation around my chin and jaw line from acne in my late teens. This completely covers all of that without any extra concealer. I find that the staying power is pretty good, but I set mine with Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil, so that probably has something to do with it. I love the slightly dewy finish that it gives my skin. I find that it does have kind of a weird smell, but it's not that unpleasant, and it completely disappears after application. I will definitely be repurchasing.
