I don't like the size of it....it's too small for me....it is ideal for contouring but I'm a blushoholic so I like a bigger brush for blush. The bristles are soft....and it picks up a lot of product though so that's a plus. So it's a contour brush for me so for that purpose, I would repurchase.

This foundation in the shade carob is my exact shade. I don't have a major acne problem but I do have discoloration on my cheeks....I also have a few scars from pimples that came up during that time when I didn't know how to take care of my face. My skin is also oily. Pro: excellent coverage....blends easily...gives me a natural but flawless finish Con: it tends to be oily and it tranfers....transferring is something that happens with a lot of make up that I have tried so i don't worry 2 much about that. Touching your face, especially with hands that are not clean isn't good for your facial skin anyway so I just try not to touch my face....but anyhow, the oiliness is really not an issue once I have primed my face with milk of magnesia...when I put the black opal over that, it literally soaks alllll the oil out the foundation an just gives me a matte finish....not ashy but just a fresh look...and it lasts all day. I am usually out and about in the day then I just go straight to work at night and I just need to blot my nose, apply a little powder and my face is good as new. I try not to apply to much or it looks cakey. A little goes a long way. I usually set this with Mac studio fix powder and then put black opal oil absorbing powder on my nose just because it gets super oily there. I love the stick because I just wind it up and swipe it on my face...I don't have to touch it at all unless my brushes are dirty and I have to use my fingers. It was $20 here in Barbados so that's a little less that 10 US....great price for such an amazing product. Will most definitely repurchase!
