This brush is the perfect blending brush. I purchased it at the least 3 years ago, and its held up through constant use as well as washing. It blends colors perfectly and is a great crease brush overall! It also never sheds.
I ADORE this brush! At first, because it was only $3, I felt a bit skeptical, but obviously it was worth the risk because of how cheap it was. I have been looking for a flat, dense brush to apply my foundation with and this is perfect! Even after countless uses and washes, it never sheds and continues to apply foundation flawlessly. I have also found that I don't need to by foundation as much because it applies it to my face and doesn't seep into the bristles of the brush as much. Amazing and so worth the money!
For the money, I'd say this is a pretty good foundation. I definitely wouldn't wear it every day because it doesn't have the lasting power I need, but it gives decent coverage and is good for pictures. Sometimes, it begins to wear and appears be a bit too orangey, so go a shade lighter when buying this product.
I think this is a great exfoliant. I've been using it since I was 12, I am now 18, and I find that it manages to leave me with a sweet apricot smell and a smooth, clean face.

This minimizes pores, sucks out every bit of oil, keeps a matte finish on my face all day long, and is transparent. It really does make my foundation and concealer last much longer than it normally would with a drugstore powder. I love this powder!
This product does exactly what it is meant to; to camoflauge any dark bags under the eyes, or the stubborn scars and pimples. However, the product is so thick and slides very easily. It creases in no time at all, even with my best and most expensive powder.
I wear this lipstick everyday! It is so pigmented and has a beautiful color to it. I have been searching for a lipstick that has a cooler toned pink and a lot of pigment because I have dark red lips that hardly any lipstick can cover/make lighter. This is much better than the expensive MAC, Estee Lauder, and Lancome lipsticks. Favorite.
This product has potential, but to me is awful. I purchased the color that looked perfect for my skin tone, but when I got home and applied it, it was a horrid orangey-streaky mess! The foundation itself seemed to have coverage in the time that I looked at it before wiping it off, but overall I found it terrible.
I love my Painterly Paint Pot! For me, it covers any veins or discolorations on my lids and provides a perfect base for my eyeshadows. It extends the amount of time that my eyeshadows last dramatically! I'm addicted to it.
This foundation does have a wide range of colors to choose from, but the "stay" part of the deal is definitely not fitting. I have oily skin and was hoping to find that this would be a cheap, full coverage foundation with staying power, but it lacks tha staying power. It has a very full coverage and I occasionally mix it with my Mac Pro Longwear foundation to add a bit more coverage. Overall, it has nice coverage but doesn't have staying power.
I absolutely love this foundation. I have very oily skin that never manages to hold a foundation throughout a long day, but this one definitely succeeds in doing just that. I use a dense flat brush to apply, and the foundation has a medium-buildable coverage. It barely starts fading after 10 hours of wear! The only problem is that it dries quickly and doesn't give me the full, flawless, smooth coverage I'm looking for. Best foundation I've found yet, though!
