I use this brush for my MUFA foundation which DRIES REALLY QUICKLY. Great STIPPLING, great BUFFING and the result is a kinda AIRBRUSHED feel because i dont see my pores anymore;) It doesnt take more product than my other brushes did and goes in all nooks and crannies other brushes didnt. Takes a little more time though but its worth it. I can build up and VARY COVERAGE without my face looking packed on. Salesperson told me to always clean and let DRY ON THE SIDE because drying vertically will result in water collecting and damaging the base where the bristles are.
I have it in black. I love the fact that i dont need to wait and coat again. In the mornings quick flick allover lashes coats them nicely and they look thicker, longer and blacker all day. The best mascara ive used sofar. Pricey at 32 Euros but packaging is quite nice. Will buy again.

NC42 MAC/honey in Bobbi Brown/ 60 mat velvet MAKEUP FOREVER Indian Asian oily skin Excellent staying power, covers everything especially if layered. Must apply moisturizer before using it. I apply a good cream and then wait 2 mins. Just a small squirt of this concealer is enough to layer twice. Bottle is a squeezy one, so sanitary and it did go a long way, several months for me, and i use it daily. Does not crease my under eye area. Bought my second bottle. Im a number 8 in it. Highly recommend.

MAC NC42/ Honey in Bobbi Brown/ Honey Beige 60 mat velvet MAKEUPFOREVER Indian Asian Skin/ Oily Does mat and does make my skin look velvety. Good sanitary packaging, a bit pricey but worth the mat break for my oily skin. I have very oily skin in summers, and dry cheeks in winters. I wear this daily and it covers my very dark under eye circles and hyper pigmentation very well. Apply moisturizer first since this foundation is drying and you need to work fast with your brush. Use their concealer first for the under eye bad boys. Then use any colourless finishing powder. Done. Stays on all day even in summers. I need to blot with blotting paper twice in summers but thats my very oily skin really. This foundation is the closest ive gotten to looking smooth.
Cannot do without this brush, its that good. Packs on product, applies easily and is soft. Easy to clean.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. A regular pink which cannot go wrong with people my skin colour (as above). Staying power 4-5 hours, and makes me look fresh. Keeper in handbag.

NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. I have used the samples i got and its great for applying under eye before using concealer. Gives a good creamy base. Find it too expensive to buy.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown/Honey Beige 60 in MAKEUP FOREVER/ Indian Asian skin. Must have especially if you have got the Blushbaby blush from Mac. Looks fresh and gives the right amount of classy pink on indian skin tones. I bought several lip liners from MAC before i settled for this one. Covers heavily pigmented lips too, i sometimes use just the liner as lipstick! Will buy again.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. A must have for indian skin tones. Looks smashing, smokey, deep, mysterious etc! Apply heavily for smokey look, apply lightly near eye line for smudgy effect. Good pop of colour.
Highlighters -MAC - Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast

NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. Got it in bright forecast. Clicked atleast 50 times before product showed up and it just seemed like a lighter shade of any concealer I could have used. Was even a bit grey. Will keep in bag tommorow and use during daytime and come back to edit if i have another verdict. For now, i will not buy again as it is expensive for what it is doing.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. The sales assistant tested this on me and it did seem to do a good blot job then so i bought it. I get oily during the day and my face starts shining bright around 1pm so i either need to use 5 or 6 blotting papers or I use this powder with brush. It does a good job of blotting but also gives a "darkish" colour which is not what im looking for. If used with a light hand this is great and does keep oil away for longer than the blot papers do. Am not sure whether i will buy again or not.

NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. The most lovely smell i can think of and makes hands just perfectly creamy without residue. Costs 8 Euros and well worth it.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. This lip primer does an excellent job of giving a neutral layer to lips. I have heavily pigmented lips, so i dab 3 or 4 small dots on lips, rub with fingers allover and wait for a minute. All lipstick colours come on perfectly after that and stay on longer too. Since it neutralizes lip colour to your skin colour practically you can recreate your lip line thus making them look bigger, smaller or whatever floats your boat;)
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. For 40 Euros i was expecting a much better brush. It has not done the shedding I have read about recently but it doenst do a better job than the 10 Euro average brushes i had. I apply blush with it and will not be buying again.
NC42 MAC/ Honey in Bobbi Brown Indian Asian skin. I found the colour very classy and i think it would suit most Indian skin tones. Unfortunately im on the edge about whether its a tad too dark for me especially since Gingerly is lighter and gives more colour. Would prefer to go for sheer tones so will not buy again, although it is quite a good blush.
