No BS....it's ok...This is a very good brush I am loving the Kat Von D brush line and I love she combines two brush heads into one making the brushes great for traveling and not needing to many brushes and the girl needs to calm down just because your VIB doesn't mean anything calm yourself it's a brush you sound ignorant....And while this brush isn't necessary at all, I really love the pointed end for getting right into the inner corners of my eyes, alongside my nose, to place a goodly amount of a light, brightening eyeshadow and this brush gets in there better than any other brush I own.

Love !...Love it...Only giving 4 stars because I think the foundation brush could be a bit more dense (I find it to leave streaks and had to use a more dense brush) and the concealer brush is better off as a nose contour or even eyeshadow blending brush....I was a little hesitant to purchase these brushes after reading some of the reviews, but I am glad I did!

LOVE IT!!!...This brush is perfect!...It picks up both cream and powder contour easily and gives you a smooth contour application which you can also use this brush to buff out....I can't really say the same for the fan tip end of this brush though... I haven't really found a use for it because even though it's a nice fan shape, the bristles are too soft and sparse and bend too easily.

love it...it's OK...I would also have to say I was planning on just buying the mini one to try it out but when Sephora had a bundle that included this one, the mini one AND two hair products for $120 I have to get it such a great deal I do not regret it one bit...I have thick and heavy Indian hair, Although it can improve some functions such as adding more bristle to the edge of the brush so it's easier to brush and straighten the ends but it's not a big deal as I use my hair comb and it works great but it would be something nice to add.

love it...Love it....The clinique woman I talked to told me that this is the product I was looking for: It's great for giving me an even skin tone, but I am knocking off a star because it doesn't "luminize" the way she described...I ended up buying a TheBalm product to get the glow I was looking for....However, I am very fair, and I have to ensure that I am very light handed with it because it can give my skin a brownish gray cast if I use too much... I definitely wouldn't say it's "invisible," but I would still recommend it as long as a light hand is used!
