I WOULD BE LOST WITHOUT THIS BRUSH! I LOVE IT! hardly sheds if ever, and works beautifully with liquid foundation, mineral foundation, and powder foundation.
I think that the coverage on this is really great, and i have a bunch of acne scarring. I think it just depends on your technique? I use the stippling mac 187 method or stippling with a flat top kabuki and it covers very very well with very little product (stippling not stippling and swirling method). I think it looks much more natural when you stipple as well! Im unsure if this breaks me out or not so i took off 1 star...everything kind of breaks me out =P, but not too badly.

DUPE FOR MAC'S SHROOM EYESHADOW!
DUPE FOR MAC SPRINGSHEEN =) i love it
LOVE IT! Using it in place of my MAC 134 bc this feels way softer against my skin =)
ive been using this for a few months as under-eye concealer only and its never once turned orange and covers up my dark circles pretty well. the only thing is it cakes up on me if i pat it in w/ my fingers but not when i use it with a brush...but i love it and the packaging doesnt bother me. i love the smell! i love orange creamsicles =) elf's other concealer with the double ends (highlight + concealer) works better though IMO.
this is the only eyebrow product that i trust! ive used many diff eyebrow pencils and powders, and this is the only pencil that looks natural for me. the consistency of the pencil is kind of...dry-ish so as you fill in your eyebrows it doesnt apply so strongly. it actually has a powdery finish, but its much more precise than using a powder. I just brush the color into my brows so it looks more natural, i dont like using the gel bc i dont really like using any gels. It makes my eyebrows crispy which i dont like, but my eyebrows dont need the gel bc the pencil is also kind of waxy and my brows stay in place! Ive used this product in every color they have bc I change my hair color often, I can say all of them work very well! I only like the pencil though, so I wish I could get only the pencil =(..and the caps keep falling off the pencil but it doesn't affect the product

i think that the lack of pigmentation is a blessing in disguise. The shadow is good for the days that you want to have very subtle eyeshadow that doesn't stand out, looking more "natural". This way, it won't be as likely for you to overdo your eyeshadow, yet brightens and opens your eyes. I didnt come to this realization till now since im trying to do a subtle look today. =)
I love this blush, but I found a cheap dupe! ELF's Candid Coral. EXACT color, i just noticed when i used it earlier! =)
this product is extremely watery and good, i heard the forumation was meant to be a more expensive foundation but maybelline bought it or something...you can yahoo search it, it was top drugstore buys of 2009. anyway! it has a very very very dewey consistency which i'd like if i didnt already have oily skin and the coverage is decent if you dont have blemishes which i do now, but when i didnt before..it was very natural w/o caking. id recommend for ppl w/ dry skin who like a dewey glow who don't have a lot of blemishes.

maybe these items are a hit and miss but i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee all my brushes! they are all super soft and they hardly shed (mostly face brushes shed but barely) and none of mine bled etc...and i wash them once every week.... i dunno i really love these brushes! Some of my MAC brushes are a TAD bit softer on the skin compared the their sigma counterparts but some of my sigma brushes are softer than my MAC (ie...MAC 150 and SS150) my SS150 is much softer IMO
i got this perfume in satisfaction bc i smelled the sample in a cosmopolitan magazine and omg it smelled sooooo good and sexy! i had to go out and buy it! the best part is its only 18.00 and the smell lasts! i usually use estee lauder, elizabeth arden, lacoste, dior..etc.. but this smell is especially unique! i usually change out my perfume but ive been wearing this everyday since i got it...i love it! the packaging is ugly but who cares.

i love it! i dont really used it around my face bc i cant really see it on my skin and it rubs off my concealer when im putting it on, so maybe when my skin is clearer and i dont need concealer it will be be better. but i love this as a contour for my nose! since its kind of creamish at first it makes contouring my big ole nose look more natural! the color of it is perfect! i love this =) itll last me 1000 years bc i only use it once a day on such a small part of my face
i love it!!! ive never finished a lipgloss before but this could be the one i do for the first time! but thats okay i bought 2 back ups, i like to smell it all the time as a pick me up. the smell is mouth watering i love it!
For a long time I was loyal to my Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation, but this foundation does the same for MUCH less! Instead of having that "buildable" quality like MUFE has, this foundation is full coverage that you can sheer out, which I think is much better because you use LESS product and it will get the same coverage. It also makes a pretty soft finish just like Mat Velvet + does =)! What a great foundation! It smells kind of weird though =P and I dont like how u have to spill it out to get any product. I prefer this over the Revlon Photo Ready. I notice how below everyone is complaining about the fact that it doesnt come sealed and in tamper-proof packaging....the CVS I go to is ALWAYS sealed and new..sooo i guess it just depends where you get it.
