If there's a 6 lippie, I'd definitely give it to this brush! This is my HG brush. It makes applying liquid foundation so so easy and quick. I don't have much time in the morning, and this brush has helped me a lot in saving time. I used a sponge or a 190 brush before to put my foundie, but eversince I got this brush, I don't use those two anymore. Flawless foundie application within barely a minute with this brush. Just dab the foundie into dots on your face and start buffing and you'll see.
Loose Powders -T. LeClerc - Loose Powder in Naturel

This is the best loose powder so far! I am Asian, NC40, medium-tan complexion, and I absolutely love this product. Price is a bit on the high side, but considering the huge amount that can last me a very long time, I'm still giving 5 lippie for the price. Like others said, the tin packaging is cute, BUT it is a nightmare sometimes. You gotta be very careful when opening the tin, otherwise you'll risk spilling out some powder. I have to put some in a small plastic shifter jar to be able to carry it in my purse for touch ups. This powder is so finely milled, it just blends into my skin perfectly. Right after my foundation, I just dab some and it gives me a nice soft matte look.

I LOVEEEE this product. I have super oily skin and I was surprised when I first tried this that I don't need to blot for like 5 hrs (and that's pretty damn good imho). It still gives me oil, but more like glowy kinda thing, instead of yucky oily. I have this in medium and it's a bit too light for me. I'm ordering deep but it hasn't come yet. Can't wait for it to come. This product is a must everytime I use my MMU.
I love this stuff. this is the first eye primer that I've used and loved it. makes my e/s lasts longer and the colors more vibrant. you gotta put it only a tiny bit though if you want to make it worked to the max. just dab your brush/finger (don't swipe) and gently dab it into your eyes, then gently blend it. first time I tried it, I put too much product on my eyes and it made it a lil cakey. second time around was much better. I think the key is to put it only a lil.
