The design of this brush is very unique. Its a "kabuki" brush in a full sized brush handle. It is very soft and is so dense. I don't recommend using this for bronzer because of the density. This brush is a breeze to wash. I recommended this brush to anyone especially beginners with makeup. I have no complaints, except the price, Its a little steep, at my local Ulta its $12.59. Other than that, I have no complaints I would repurchase this and I highly recommend this.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush 831E Pearlescent Pink

The Wet 'n' wild coloricon blush is my Favorite drugstore blush of all time. This is my holy grail item. These blushes are so pigmented, is almost unbelievable. The texture is very silky and smooth. It has that velvety feel to it. I prefer and recommend using less dense or stippling brush (e.i: ecotools finishing kabuki or MAC 187 duo fibre brush). Also use this product sparingly. I have the shades pearlecsent Pink and mellow wine. It comes with a brush, but I prefer to take them out and set them aside. f you use the brush use it sparingly, it will catch A LOT of product. I HIGHLY recommend this product. The only (minor) complaint is the packaging. Mine shattered twice, therefore I had to return it and go back.. I also don't like the brush it comes with. its too stiff and applies TOO much color. If you use the brush it comes with and don't tap of excess you will look very pink.
Prior to purchasing this product, I was excited because Maybelline has exceptionally good products. When I purchased the blush I was disappointed. I like the concept of the "bounciness" but it was not very pigmented. I regret buying this. I rill not repurchase this. I do not recommend this blush. :(
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I received a sample of the BB cream about 2 weeks ago. The next morning I incorporated the sample into my daily routine. I came home about 4-5 hours later and my face looked PERFECT. I could not believe it. I like the texture of it, its not so sticky. I also find that it doesn't have a scent/fragrance to it. I love the fact that it has SPF and sunscreen. I love in South Florida and you will not believe how hot it gets. I love it. I highly recommend this BB cream. The price is a little steep for the amount of product you get; 1FL OZ.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 5 Pieces Brush Set (Mineral Makeup)

I bought this set at Ulta about 3 weeks ago. I Highly recommend this. I have been using this set everyday since my purchase. I mostly use the concealer brush and eye shading brush. I use the other brushes too, but not on a daily basis. The set comes with a Mineral powder brush, a baby kabuki brush, a concealer brush, and an eye shading brush. I use the Loreal true match foundation. I do not use it all over, therefore I just apply it to my need areas (chin and cheeks). Because the bottle does not come with a pump I apply it to my fingers then apply the foundation on my cheeks. Just a dab. I "semi-blend" using the concealer brush. After that I completely blend with the shading brush. I apply my Maybelline stay matte powder with the powder brush and apply a blush with the kabuki brush. I love how the bristles are so soft. They are a breeze to wash. I would repurchase this.
