Myth should last a while, especially since it's not really an everyday color.

Thanks The New Black! Yes - I mean scab/dry nasty spot when I say "healing".

I have read really good things about the Kevin Aucoin line. I'll grab some.
so i got an email today saying that my la splash cosmetics order had an item on backorder...it was the myth. they asked if i wanted to replace it with something else or send it without that. i explained that myth was what i really wanted out of the order so i'd just look in ulta. she informed me that they cancelled their contract with ulta (i felt pretty sure i hadn't seen it there). when i asked about other b&m stores in my area there were none. she then told me she'd press production then later she emailed me that she'd likely be able to send the order out after all today or tomorrow. i hate falling in love with products that are so hard to get but oh well. hopefully it lasts a long while.

I really need a undereye dark circle concealer. I'm still getting some darkeness coming through with the MUFE camouflage palette. Phoenix, do you think that I should use a concealer brush to apply rather than my fingers? Will this give better coverage?

Filbert Rake, available at any craft store. You might not like that the brush can leave streaks. I have no problem with that because you can blend away the streaks easily enough either with the brush or your fingers. For 10 bucks, I can deal with that.

Anyone have an opinion on the M.A.C Perfectly Plush Brush Kit: Mineralize?
MAC brush kits are usually trash. The brushes in those kits are usually machine made not hand made like the other MAC brushes and it shows. They shed a lot more and tend to not last as long. IMO you are better off taking that money and buying 1-2 regular MAC brushes and building your collection slowly (that is if you must have MAC brushes).

I personally own a lot of Crown brushes...they have a lot of MAC brush dupes and the quality is good for the price. I've also heard good things about Sadona Lace brushes too.

Thanks NCC. I figured as much. The rep told me that they are machine made vs hand made but I was still like "so what?" But yes, I figured it would be a waste of my money.

Many thanks for the Crown tip. Off to do some shopping.

Most youtube guru's have a 10-15% off code on their sites.

^^^Agreed. And Sonia Kashuk and EcoTools brushes (Target) aren't bad either.

I've used BE brushes forever, but my collection got lost in my moves between college and now. And then for a while in between, I stopped using eyeshadows. So I'm not really "starting out" but I'm rebuilding my lost collection. I really want natural bristle brushes. I really liked the effortless application that the duo fibre brushes give. Thanks for your input Alice and TNB.

Real Techniques makes some good brushes as well! I LOVE the expert face brush for liquid foundation application!

I'm currently using real techniques brushes and I HATE the crease brush. WHY is it SO BIG? I like their detail brush though, because I can define my crease really well and then blend. I love that. But that crease brush is just terrible--if you have small lid space like I do

The foundation brush (for powder) is ok.

Are the duo fibre brushes from Crown actually duo fibre or just different colours of fibres?
