I know, you use so much less eyeshadow when you use that brush! I now realise the difference between high end brushes and drugstore brushes!

May have to pick up a few more MAC brushes soon! And can't wait to get my NARS Smudge brush!

Let me know how the smudger brush works out because I think I probably do need it but the price over here is scaring me too much

I will do!I know, the price here is ridiculous! It's such a difference compared to the USD amount. I got this brush and Torrid blush for less than £30 (inc postage) on ebay!

I really want the smudge brush. i've been using a cheap mary kay lipbrush that i got in a MK brush set for my smudging. I am eager to hear if you like the brush cus then maybe i will break down and buy it.

I love the colour though & think it will look fab on my cheeks and lips even if i never wear it on my eyes again. I'll give it another chance on my eyes next week!

It usually doesn't crease over that... I have that one paint in "Untitled" & even just e/s alone would crease w/ it. Paints alone didn't cut it for me and 'grease crease'... definitely need a primer.

Laura - you got to get the UD PP soon - it is so fab!!I got mine when they were on offer in Boots - buy 2 save £5. And sometimes Debenhams have 10% off cosmetics when they have their sales on.
