For only $8, this powder brush has out done all other powder brushes I've used. The bristles are super soft (as always expected from Eco Tools) and it brushes powder on like a dream. With proper brush maintenance this brush will last for a long time! I don't want to go back to anything else now.

Okay if you have the right skin.
Although cream foundations are usually for drier skin, but it seems like this would be better for more normal skin. You really have to blend well or else it's very easy to look cakey. I would recommend using a foundation brush with this instead--you'll use a lot less. As for coverage, it's quite decent. I personally wouldn't give up my regular foundation for this.

My new favorite
I used to use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, until I tried this. This is very similar in the fact that it will not irritate your skin because it doesn't contain harsh chemicals. This is the perfect moisturizer even for sensitive skin. This sinks into the skin like a dream and my face feels so refreshed. What I like about this more is that it has spf in it unlike the Clinique lotion so I will never leave the house completely unprotected. I love Boscia!

The absolute BEST!!!
I have used SO many gel and cream eyeliners, from the drugstore brands to luxury brands and this is hands down the best I've used. Even without eye primer, this does last a very long time. With eye primer, and it's unstoppable. It's waterproof, smudge proof, fade proof, and sweat proof---things that are incredibly important for me because I attend many concerts where I sweat and dance all night and my eyes still looking flawless. Using an eyeliner brush, make sure to dampen it with water prior to using ANY gel/cream liner. This is the CREAMIEST, smoothest, most pigmented liner I've ever used---I never have to add any additional water to make it creamy like I have to do with other liners. Even Fluidline doesn't compare to this. I like that this product comes in an opaque black jar, because light won't enter the container and change the pigment like it does with glass jars of my other liners. This liner will stay rich and creamy until the very last drop. This is perfect for cat eyes and your base for smokey eyes, but I like to use it for face painting as well when I do artistry looks. I will NEVER use another cream liner, and trust me--I've tried them all!!

I like this a lot!
If I don't use any additional styling tools other than a blow dryer, my hair is usually very loosely wavy. I spray this on and WOW, my waves not only become slightly more tighter and defined curls, but this doesn't make my hair dry. This doesn't have an obnoxious scent to it like other curl/wave sprays. Most importantly, this does NOT make my hair stiff or sticky even if I spray a bit in my thick mane. You must spray this as the very last thing behind any other styling products you use. This has dramatically cut down on my styling time in the morning because I no longer have to use a curling iron to add slightly more curl to my natural waves. This also adds a shine to your hair that doesn't look or feel oily, so your hair looks healthier, despite the fact that all of us women torture it with our products and heat tools. It's a bit pricey per bottle $23, considering that there are so many other curl reactivating sprays. I do like this because it doesn't make hair stiff, but rather makes dry hair feel softer as well.

I always hear about how makeup artists have been raving about this so I decided to try this. I own so many foundations; which one I use usually depends on what kind of coverage and how much time I want to spend applying it. I decided to give this a try. I use shade number 350 which fits my skin tone surprisingly well just based on a guess. I use a sponge to apply this rather than a foundation brush because since it's a little thicker than the foundations I normally use, I want this to glide on for more coverage. I do like how it's light weight and sits on the skin comfortably. What I love about this foundation is that you can feel it hydrating your skin and it doesn't feel like your skin begins to tighten from dryness over time like with some foundations. It gives a more natural to dewy finish which I do like. Although the coverage is buildable, it's a little harder to get this all the way to full coverage. Make sure you moisturize and prime before using this so your makeup glides on perfectly. This foundation does not cake, but it can crease is you put it over your eyelid, so make sure to blend super well. It's about $10 per tube which for many people (particularly with normal to dry/combination skin) will like this foundation if they're seeking sheer to medium coverage.

I have the worst hair imaginable; thick, frizzy, dry, damaged, etc. This stuff made my hair so much more manageable after the first use; it was also much less frizzy. It made my hair soft too.

I like that this doesn't make my hair stiff or sticky after rubbing it into the living monster that is my hair. It does help with definition of my natural waves a little bit. It does tame frizz a little bit as well. As for making my hair soft and supple like it says in the description, I wouldn't say that. My hair normally feel like straw and this does help make it a little softer to the point where feeling my hair is more tolerable, but it doesn't make it as soft as I would like it to be.
