LOVE LOVE LOVE I've only had this product 3 days, hence the 4 out of 5 stars. So far I am very impressed. I'm coming off of Revlon COlorstay, and Loreal True Match. The RCS is heavy heavy heavy and is fine if you're looking for thick long lasting coverage. For the summer I enjoy wearing a lighter foundation, and I've found it in the DSM. I apply it with a stipple brush in a circluar motion. I love how much easier it is to use a compact makeup rather than one in a bottle. Wayy less mess, and so much easier. When you apply this makeup there is a fantastic coolness that hits your face the minute your brush does. I've never had anything like this with any other foundation. It was kind of a nice surprize :-) The foundation looks flawless! Even on my 52 year old skin. It's pretty buildable as well. I have a sun spot on one of my cheeks and although it doesnt cover it completely, it covers pretty well. This is not a full coverage makeup, however, as I mentioned, it is buildable. So far I am thrilled with this product. I have combo skin, and I have to say, finishing it off with powder, and maybe one quick powder touch up late in the day does the trick. Bravo, Mabelline! Bravo! ...now if you guys could just get rid of your stupid "whisper" commercials, life would be perfect!

I wanted to love this product SO MUCH, but alas, after several attempts it's just WAY WAY WAY to glittery for me. I've read many positive reviews, but I feel that if you're over 25 you have no business wearing a product with this much glitter in it. I know several MUA use it on brides. I am a MUA and would never use it on a bride especially if they were going to set a foot outdoors. If you're young, going to a club or a rave, or as Edward from Twilight sparkling in the sun, I would say skip this product.
I've been using this product for years! On the days I don't want heavy lipstick, and just want a nice moisturizer/chapstick type of lip, with a tint of color I use this. Watermelon is my fav shade. A nice pink. I will sometimes even put it over my fav pink lipstick shades to give my lips a nice feel. The smell is great, also gives a bit of a tingle on the lips. Staying power isn't all that great, but all in all I love this product.

After reading all of the reviews on this brush, I had to try it. I have to say, it's pretty amazing! I tried it with my liquid foundation and it made my face look pretty much flawless. I am a MUA and normally use either a flat foundation brush, or a sponge on my myself as well as my clients, but I will def plan on using this brush in the future. As a matter of fact, I went back out to my Target this afternoon to buy another one and they were sold out. I will be heading out to another Target tomorrow!
