Favorite Shadow Brush
I love, love, love this brush. The bristles are so dense that it really packs eye shadow on the lid. It also picks up product so well that there is less waste. If you're going to buy one eye shadow brush from MAC, get this one. The #217 Blending Brush is great too. If you are trying to save a little money though, the Sigma E55 Eye Shading Brush is so similar to the #239. Grab that one instead.

Favorite light coverage foundation right now.
I've been using this for about 2 weeks now. At first I wasn't sure about it, the coverage is very light. Now that I've been using it for a little while, I've come to like it. I think I just had to experiment with application methods (for me stippling works best). Details: It smells weird, almost like something old mixed with something nutty? I can't place it. It's not horrible but if you're really particular about scent, you might not like that. The coverage is light but buildable and dries to a nice dewy finish, great for aging skin. It's lighter coverage than ColorStay even though it is thicker. Because of it's thick consistency, it's a little hard to get out of the bottle, but I don't waste as much product as I do with ColorStay, which comes out too fast. The lightest shade of Fresh Ivory is a good match for my neutral and very fair skin even though it looks dark in the bottle. (ColorStay tends to run a little pink on me in the lightest shade of Ivory.) It doesn't settle into my fine lines at all! Love that. It does last all day on me with a primer. No oxidation orange face. I'm not sure about paralyzing my expression lines, or whatever it's supposed to do, but because there is no settling into lines, it does give me a much smoother appearance. Controlled oil well (with my NYX Studio Primer) on my combination skin.
