If the mask had been slightly curved from a side view - sort of ( - it might have been OK. Most of the masks I've seen so far have a somewhat flat aspect (|) on the face side.

The cheekbone problem is one of the major problems. This is especially true if you have a nasal bridge that is indented a lot from your brow and similarly if the recess above your chin is deep. It is one of the reasons that the Simplus works pretty well for me. The Mirage Quattro is adjustable in terms of the depth the top of the seal needs to go to in order to seal at the nasal bridge. The F20 seems to tie it all together pretty well without the need for an adjuster.

Best Regards,
