This formula is unlike anything else I've tried in the history of my makeup usage! I'm an average consumer whose recently gotten into cinematic brands because the pigment and blendability, not to mention the shade range, is world's better than anything you'll find at a cosmetic counter or a mall shop. I of course stan RCMA, Joe Blasco, and Ben Nye, but MaqPro has them all beat in terms of luxuriousness and seamlessness. Seriously, once warmed this makeup is so smooth and applies so well, and I don't notice a texture or tackiness on my skin throughout the day. I use the MaqPro blending stuff either as a primer or mixed with a pigment and it works like a charm. This is for sure my holy grail brand. Their excellent formula and scope of shades and options will keep me from being tempted by other shiny palettes for some time to come!
