I used the new 234 brush to apply the MES, and let me say that brush works wonders. I only used the MES dry because if I liked them when they were dry I knew they would be even better wet. I was commenting to my MA as I kept testing out different shadow combinations that I can't believe there isn't any fall out. She was impressed as well and was like yeah I can see your really packing on the color as well. The 234 brush blends and applies the MES perfectly and is really soft. I also believe that the brush helped contain some of the fall out that is common with MES. I liked the 234 brush so much I got two of them just in case something happens to one! I also reserved the 235 just because I liked the 234 so much without even testing it. I also tried the MES with the paint pot in Bare Study and that also worked well with the MES. The MES are best seen in person and swatched by yourself because I don't think the pictures do them justice. I had made a list of what I wanted the second time around and still added more on after seeing certain colors in person and testing them out for myself.
Next I played with the MSF's using the 128 brush. I really like how soft that it was and the way that it applied the MSF'S.
Hope this helps! :)
Did you use the natural side or the synthetic side to apply the MES?
