I was thinking of buying them, but have never really tried TBS e/s before. Do they last a long time? Are they nicely pigmented?

You have to use a pretty small brush and be very careful unless you don't care if you mix the colors.

The MUA there told me their brushes are no good, but this was a long time ago. I don't know if they changed them now, but I would probably just try other brands when it comes to brushes...

but yeah they are each housed in their own container, so you can take them outa the cube x

Maybe the counter was raided by a bunch of kids. I've seen what they can do at Sephora and other stores where the testers are out for all to plunder.

BTW, where in the UK do you live and work? Hope you were far awal from all the recent trouble.

We have friends in the Midlands -- just outside Birmingham.

i live in Birmingham! i was in London on July 21st the day of the 2nd attempted bombings, it was scary but its the world we live in now i guess, i cant even watch the news much now its too depressing!

Where abouts do your friends live?? x :icon_love

My friends live just outside Birmingham in Dorridge, Sollihull. We did a home exchange with them a few years ago and they have been back here to visit us.
I have another friend who was in London riding a BritRail commuter when the second attempt happened. They made everyone get off the train and since he was at a stop he didn't know he just went looking for the pub. After about half an hour he was able to re-board and continue on.

I know what you mean about the news. I live about 50 miles from Washington. With the 9/11 events, the anthrax scare, and the sniper shootings (one of which was right around the corner and another was at the mall where I shop) I have to listen to the news to see if it's okay to leave the house!

Stay safe.

While we were staying at their house (and they were staying at ours) we took the train in from Dorridge to attend a concert in Birmingham. Never did get into town to shop, tho'.

I love school holidays! I just got my pay slip through the post and I'm being paid for doing nothing for the last 4 weeks. Champions

So I got them both yesterday,and I love em already. Today I tried the spring cubes,they're so pretty. The fall cubes will have to wait a little longer,although the weather is already kinda Fall-ish,I'm still hanging on to summertime
But I'm sure the fall cubes will be great too.

This really is shimmer at its best


And I followed your advice about the brushes and didn't buy any,thanks for saving me money!
