I'm in love with the core collection! The brushes are amazing for everyday use, easily washable and handy. I bought the core collection, stippling, eye set and expert face brush for about $40 which is dirty cheap. At the moment there's a 50% discount on Real Techniques at iherb.com!

I absolutely hate it. If I put this on directly from the tube, it doesn't sit well on the lips: it looks too dark (deep purple) in some parts and lighter (plummy) in others. I definitely need a brush to apply this, which is hard to carry with me in order to reapply during the day. AIso it is way too dry and looks awful on chapped lips.
This is definitely neother a makeup remover nor a good skin cleanser. It does not remove anything and does nothing at all for me. OK, it is not drying out my skin, but that's all. I dont feel that my face is clean after using cetaphil, even if I use it when I wake up in the morning without having makeup on.
This is the best blush brush ever! It's relatively small and pointed so that you can achieve detail in makeup. You can either flip it on the side and use the pointed end for contouring or work with it in circular motions on the cheeks for blush. It is extremely soft, ridiculously cheap, the bristles are not falling apart, it doesnt lose its shape. I couldnt ask for more. I LOVE this brush, even more than the elf powder brush!

This primer is fantastic! It really helps with the foundation application and gives a flawless finish. The makeup lasts all day, it's amazing! I also put it on my eyelids and under concealer and I have no smudging whatsoever. This is a must have for my dry skin as it is hydrating as well. I couldnt ask for more! It is a bit pricey though...
