The brush is very soft and the bristles are quite compact so gives great coverage. I love all my Urban Decay brushes, they are super soft and look great. Because they have cream tips you can see what shade has been on previously, which is good. These have quite weighty handles and are worth every penny i paid for them.
Concealers -Urban Decay - Urban Camouflage 3-in-1 Concealer

I have this in cloud cover. It quite small but should last a while. I apply with an Urban Decay Concealer Brush. The shade Cloud Cover goes on my skin quite light, a good few shades lighter than my skin tone and i'm pale, being British, it looks OK once you're put your foundation on over the top, but i couldn't put it on to bare face and leave it at that. It is a good consistency and seems to last well. It would be nice for it to have had it's own brush. The green shade on the other hand is awful. It's very green. If i put it on a spot, yes it is no longer red, but in it's place is a green mark, which is worse? It's a good product for under foundation, but for me the colours are wrong so can't be used for touch ups or for when you want to go bare faced with just a touch of concealer where you need it. Why is it that companies only make concealer in about 2 shades?
Makeup Brushes -Too Faced - Retractable Kabuki Brush

I just received my brush yesterday and i must say i'm very impressed. I use it to apply my Urban Decay Surreal Skin foundation in Illusion. I just make sure only 1cm of the brush is out so that the bristles are compact and it gives me great coverage. It wouldn't be suitable for foundation if the brush was fully retracted. I'm going to be getting a few more, for powder and bronzer as they're perfect for taking out with you. I only use synthetic brushes and find that they apply makeup much better (and without the cruelty involved) than animal hair. I have a lot of Urban Decay brushes and can recommend them as well. Since there are no other synthetic kabuki brushes out there as far as i'm aware I'd be pretty stuck if i didn't like it. I wouldn't recommend applying blusher with it as when the sheath is completely down the brush is quite big. It cost £20 which is very reasonable compared to other brushes from the likes of Nars and Bobbi Brown which are super expensive. Just a shame these brushes never come up cheap on eBay.
Palettes -Too Faced - Quickie Chronicles - Royal Flush

The Palette just arrived today so i haven't had a chance to try all the colour out yet. The eyeshadows are great as usual, lots of pigment to them, the colour you see in the palette is the colour it turns out on your eyes. They are actually the colours of Neapolitan ice cream, vanilla, pink and chocolate. The lipglosses have a good amount of pigment to them and are non drying. They match very well to the eyeshadows. The blusher is a bronzer really, and works well on my pale British skin as i find alot of bronzers are way too dark unless you already have a holiday tan. This is my 12th Chronicle and it sure won't be the last.
