One swipe and the make up is gone. A pump would definitely be preferred, but overall an inexpensive and effective product.
For red this is IT. Completely opaque, true to color and has lasted through meals and the whole day with only miniscule amount of fading which is not noticeable. I've worn this three days in a row from 7 am to 6 am with the same results. But yes this is a head turner and an instant teeth whitener! Will definitely always repurchase till they keep making it.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 188 Small Duo Fibre Face brush

I actually set out to buy the 187, but the MA used this to even out my complexion with the foundation I already had on (ELDW) and the result was a smooth even finish. So I went ahead and bought this. This is a small brush but I found it to be useful around the nose area and also around the eye. I also use it to apply blush and since it picks a small amount so you get a natural finish. Overall stippling is a great way to apply foundation and this brush also doubles up as a blush brush, probably will be better for creme blushes. Will repurchase but I guess this will last a long while. Have not seen any shedding as yet.

I got this as a freebie when I bought some of their other products. The colors are natural and very appropriate for daywear. The finish is frosty.However, the brush can be better.
This a great foundation. It has tremendous lasting power and acts as a very good base for powder and blush. However I found this to me medium coverage with one or two scars still showing through. I got matched with the wrong shade but otherwise good to use. The 'not having a pump' does not bother me much because a just pour out a drop and that's it. A very little amount is required for the entire face, if used in excess it gives a cakey look. So considering the amount required and the price, I woud say this works out cheap! I have my bottle since the last 8 months and not even half of it is finished and I've been using it every day since I bought it.
On first application I feel it smells kind of spicy and then the scent diffuses into a floral aroma. Lasts for quite a while which means practically the whole day. A light spray is required else it could be overpowering .Yes I really liked the scent, have given a four not to take anything away from the product but because I didn't have any other EL fragrance to compare with.
I bought this product when I was looking for a blush. TBS SA said I should try this and it looked great. It has a very soft sponge which picks up the product very well and which is good for application as it deposits the right amount of product. A light swipe on the cheekbones across the forehead tip of nose maybe and chin and it looks great. I wore it to work one day and immediately a colleague ( female!) told me that I looked really nice. So that's a review too I guess. Caution: If it drops the beads will break, or even frequent shaking and it gets reduced to powder.Also should be used very sparingly otherwise will look fake. This is going to last me a long time as I don't use it everyday
Wow! I am amazed. Now I think I know why the MAC blushes have such a high rating. I never thought I would apply blush everyday. This applies lightly just two strokes and there is a natural hint of color. I wore this for the third consecutive day and don't feel like I have a ton of make up on. It has definitely become part of my routine.
Well, this is the first lip gloss I purchased from MAC and I'm not a big fan of gloss, but I think I am about to be converted. This is certainly pigmented and can be worn alone. I'm not sure if it can be worn over a lipstick because the pigment may change the original color of the lipstick and I haven't tried this yet, but I think I will and let you know. Anyways, this gloss does last through a meal and though some of it will be lost someone looking at you can tell there is a glossiness on your lips, best of all it looks natural. Immediately after putting it on smells like vanilla somewhat. Overall a good gloss to have, nothing dramatic but you can tell that you get noticed.
Earlier I used to use my fingers to apply foundation ,but I just got my first MAC foundation its SFF and the MUA suggested using the wedge sponge .I'm so glad I did , the finish is completely different and very little of the product is needed . Perfect . Would be repurchasing always.
this is the first time i'm using blush from bourjois and am really pleased with the product especially i think the shade is a pretty good match for my skin tone ,and there is a mirror there too so you can use it on the go , as far as the application goes as always less is more . As the product starts finishing it loses its dome shape and becomes harder to use.
