Just purchased this brush a few days ago. Feels wonderful on the face, and definitely perfect for applying powder all over the face. In terms of liquid foundation, it works well for me with my Rimmel 24-hour, but didn't do a great job on my friend with her Revlon Colorstay Whiipped foundation (plus, she's a bit older and has wrinkles, whereas my skin is very smooth). I've used this brush three times, and each time only 1 bristle fell out.
Just purchased this brush duo, and am really liking. The larger one works really well for the crease, and the smaller one is perfect for doing the "outer v". :)
Great eyeliner for the price. I have it in black and black-brown. Good staying power and decent pigmentation. Doesn't work very well for my bottom waterline, though. Sometimes I wish it could be a bit sharper.

I purchased this product due to the rave review by YouTube beauty guru MissGlamorazzi. I already use a somewhat decent concealer, so I was much more interested in how good of a highlighter this would be. I was afraid that this shade, Radiant, would be too light for my skin (medium-olive), but after reading reviews here I decided to give it a go anyway. Wow! This product has surpassed my expectations! I just used it for the first time and am so impressed by both its highlighting ability AND its concealing ability! I have horrible dark circles and since other folks with this problem have said that this product doesn't conceal well, I was expecting just that. But, no, it does a great job as an under eye concealer ON TOP of my first under eye concealer, and also works great on top of the nose and around the nose, where any redness occurs. It highlights that key area between eye and cheek perfectly. While others have been less impressed with the packaging, I have to say that I really like it. It allows me to dab a few dots around the area I want to conceal, and then I can blend in with my finger or brush. I like that it is a "long tool" because it allows for more precision. I've only used this product once...if my opinion changes, I'll edit this review.
I love this stuff. It works well as both a primer and base, in my opinion. First, I apply a bit of my face primer (L'Oreal Studio) on my eyelids, and then dab and blend this over it. Works like a charm for me!
Makes your lashes look great, but impossible to take off at the end of the day!

It seems to give foundation a good staying power. But has anyone else noticed that when you initially put it on, it seems to turn your face pale and a bit chalky-looking?
