I have acne scarring and when i use this 'full coverage' brush with the bare minerals matte foundation it doesn't cover any of it. I tried out the Mac 109 brush with this foundation and it works amazingly at covering everything. Seriously don't waste your money on this brush.

I'm not a fan of this eye make up remover. It does an okay job at taking my mascara and eyeliner off but it really stings and makes my eyes sore. There are much better eye make up removers out there that cost a lot less money.

I would say this is more like a tinted moisturiser than a foundation. However, the amazing thing about it is that you could put 1000 layers of it on and it still wouldn't look cakey so it would be great for people with good skin and those who need a bit more coverage. I put one layer on with my fingers and then I stipple a second layer on with my MAC 187 brush and it makes my skin looks great. I do wish it came with a pump.
I love this stuff. I massage two pumps onto my dry face and then rinse off with warm water. I wear quite a lot of make up to hide acne scarring and it gets it all off and leaves my face feeling very soft. I think it also helped with some blackheads on my cheeks too. Will definitely buy more when it runs out.

This is the only skincare product aimed at acne that I like (and I have tried A LOT of different products). I'm not sure that it improved my skin that much but it didn't make my skin dry or make my acne worse like most things do so that's good enough for me! I also really like the smell and my skin feels very clean after using it.
I love this brush! It is so great for buffing in mineral powder and i also sometimes use it for blush. I haven't actually tried using it to contour but i'm sure it would work well for that too.
