I know they are a little more sparkly, so I need some guidance, 1. Do I need the special brush that is made specificaly for this product? If not, is there a MAC brush that does the trick? 2. Did anyone buy the special Pucci designed brush & bag set? If so, how is that brush? Is it the same quality of the 'regular' one they sell? 3. Should I buy the 'regular ballz' for my everyday needs. If so, what one do I reach for? I'm NC20...I'm confused of which of the 3 regular ones to buy. Many thanks! Hope everyone is wonderful!
I cannot advice on best ballz but I am sure others can. Re: the brush, I think that using a MAC brush that works well for face products would be preferable to the Guerlain brush, the MAC brushes are softer. I didn't get the Pucci brush, but I would like one just to look at. I did get the Pucci ballz, but wonder if there is too much blue in there to use them? (Personally, I like applying with the spongy/cloth applicator thingie or my BE buki)
Some of the ballz are more sparklier than others, I think if you go up the thread (back a bit) there is a rating where the ballz are rated from most to least sparkly. I think the set of ballz that will work best probably depends if you are using all over, as just highlighter, or trying to tone down a specific skin tendency (tone down red, enlighten sallow skin, etc.) so how you plan to use the ballz may help guide the recommendations.
