No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Borghese isn't bad at all.

Heck, Costco sells Chanel! So buying at Costco isn't an automatic negative.

I'm waiting for the time there's a huge makeup kit at Sam's Club that is either the same quality as MAC or is MAC makeup. And I think it only sells for something like $35, but you have to keep a really close eye on the Sam's Club near you because it only comes like 2-3 times a year, maybe less. Yeah, I want that.

It seems more popular with international people. On youtube most of the reviews are in a foreign language.

I'm eyeing their duo fibre brushes. And their goat hair fluffy blending brush looks good too.

My goat hair brushes from a groupon deal are arriving today! YAY!!! No more real techniques "crease" brush.

How some people get so many likes/subscribers is beyond me.

Sour grapes?

Maybe.

In case anyone else here has the same question...The blue is LA Splash cream eyeshadow in Myth with Mac Violet pigment packed over it. I have a YT vid for it. You can click on the link in my siggy to get to the vid.
i'm so happy i learned about myth from you. it's lovely. i love purples so myth allows me to really amp up my purples by layering myth with different shadows. thanks girl!!

Are you taking about the Kirkland brush set? I've heard amazing things about that set on the different makeup forums. People are speculating that the brushes are made for Costco by another brush manufacture. Those are supposed to be great brushes for the price.

TNB:

You introduced me to LASplash, and now I have a question for you. I have fallen in love with some of their loose e/s colors and wonder what you use as a base for them. LASplash makes it seem that you have to use their shadow sealer and I just don't believe that (plus I can't find any except at cherry culture and it was out of stock). Do you have any of their loose shadows? What do you use as a base?

Those are the ones! I like them a lot, but the blush brush is starting to look a little ragged and the powder brush leaves broken bristles (are they called bristles? Words are failing me right now) all over my chest so I have to brush them off. Also, except for a couple brushes, they run on the small side.

I think you're right about the manufacturer. I've had brushes from pretty much everywhere and still do for some (Merle Norman, MAC, Sephora, drugstore and some I can't remember) and they were the best until I bought some painting and ELF brushes that I saw recommended on here and another site. I wanted slightly larger brushes.

I'm not TNB, but I've used the maybellene color tattoes and MAC paint pots as bases for LASplash loose shadows. Also, ELF's shadow sealer works GREAT too.
