A few girls on Twitter suggested that the best way to apply Revlon ColorStay is to use a flat topped brush or a duo fibre brush. I nearly bought the Studio flat top powder brush from e.l.f. but forgot to put it in my basket before I confirmed my order. *Sigh* I popped into town last Friday and wandered into Superdrug as I needed some bits and bobs. Of course when I saw GOSH was on a 3 for 2 promotion, I couldn't resist. I ended up buying this brush. Even though it was £12... Gahhhh. And surprise, surprise, e.l.f. are just about to have another free shipping deal. Sometimes I really question my stupidity but there you go. Anywho, I'm quite glad I got this brush as it really is rather fab. I just wish it was a tad cheaper.

GOSH say: Ideal for highlighting. 50% natural, 50% synthetic.
I say: Pish posh. I bought this for foundation application! It's a flat topped brush, so ideal for foundation. It picks up quite a bit of product so its worth having a play with in order to perfect your application of foundation. I've found that this is absolutely great and gives a perfect finish. My previous e.l.f. brush has been consigned back to the brush holder! The GOSH brush comes with a handy plastic protector around the bristles, and the brush comes in the trademark GOSH packaging, which I love. At least I can get the brushes out. Take note e.l.f.!
GOSH say: It can be used for powder, blusher or foundation to create a smooth and natural look.
I say: Aha, see, it can be used for foundation :D When I first used this, I was surprised by the amount of shedding that occured. Eek. But that aside, it applied my foundation perfectly, evenly distributing it across my face to give me a really natural finish. Absolutely love it. I've also used this to apply powder afterwards and again, a huge thumbs up. Definitely worth every penny.
Price: £12.00 (Currently 3 for 2 in Superdrug)
Size: HUGE. Seriously.
Available from: Superdrug stores that sell GOSH which I think is the majority of them these days
Repurchase: When the time comes yes. Although hopefully by then I can upgrade to MAC haha.
Have you got the GOSH duo fibre brush? What do you think? How do you apply your foundation? Let me know :)
Please note, this is a scheduled post as I'm away at a graduate recruitment fair in Birmingham all day. I will read your comments when I get home tonight :) So I'm not ignoring you, promise!! xx
