this brush have round edges and it is soft, you can use it with both liquid and creamy foundations but i mostly use it for liquid foundations, as creamy foundations makes the damages the hair
One other thing this is the 2nd time in 4 years of time, i have to use a strong glue to stick the metal part,
when it the metal part first come out of the handle, i noticed that it has been also glued,
but in years it gets old and glues melt and the metal part comes out of the handle,
As you can see in the pictures it has pretty long and thick hair
I also use this brush with creamy and liquid concealer’s
I apply Cream Colour Bases, Cream Blushes, with this brush
this brush provides a flawless coverage
It is not very synthetic so you do not waste your product. you are using
I also have foundation brush from Smashbox and it is synthetic, it is hard to apply with synthetic brushes
But for cream foundations i recommend MAC’s sister brushes 188 and 191
I still do not have them but i am thinking to buy them, cos it is time to retire my dear 190 Brush…
Smashbox ’s white liner is for the water line and it supposed to show your eyes bigger than normal,
I am actually not very happy with this product, after a while you apply this product to your lash line it turns into dark gray nearly black and you start to have gray water lines, like a zombie just come up from the grave,
it is not long lasting, it smudges, and when you sharpen it nearly half of the product stays on the sharpener,
Unfortunately Me and Smashbox still not best of buddies.
Each thing i bought from smashbox gone bad in short while, either it is just get into pieces without even dropping it or i could never get the result that i expected,
Their HD Foundation is really bad
their eye shadows break into pieces
Their Primer is not good
i only like their brushes,
I did not buy this eye liner it was from one of their gift set,
I do not recommend you to buy this liner, do not waste your money…

Shu Uemura IR Green 550 Eye Shadow
here is a look created with using shu uemura’s IR Green 550
I have got MAC Pink Ample on my lips
on the Cheeks Mac Plum Floorey
I am really amazed with Shu Uemura’s eye shadows, you do not even need any eye primer it stays pretty long on eyes
it is lovely iridescent green
I love the packing, it for sure better than MAC’s
it is tinny enough to put inside the smallest makeup bag
it is in clear pan so you can easily see the colour
if you want to depot your eye shadow do not bake it or flame it
there is a small hole behind of the shadow
just use a little pin or tooth stick

i am having difficulties finding the right shampoo, i buy a product first it seems ok, i finish a bottle than i repurchase, but before i even finish my second bottle, my hair return back to it is greasy system again,
I decided to give it a go to the Shampoos of TBS and L'occitane,
did not yet tried Loccitane yet, but i am using The Body Shop’s shampoo and conditioner,
SO right now i am using Nettle Balance Shampoo and Blue Berry Conditioner

this is a really nice product. it does not show it self on lips but is is really nice orange colour
it smells gorgeous, i smell the products before i buy :)
secondly it barely shows it self on cheeks , it does not make your cheeks too orange,
you can use it alone or under a coral blush
I use it with smashbox famous blush
it has nice glitters pigments in it, it is not very obvious but it is nice i like it
i can say most of the colours are similar in this palette, one lighter one darker,
what i did not like the white and tan though
white is so not as good as i expected
both tan and white looks like they are out of date,
but anyway it is a bargain if we compare with other drugstore brands
