I had high hopes for this brush. I used to use a different kind of brush for powder and wanted to change it up. It works ok. Nothing really remarkable about it. Mainly use it for blush now as it really doesn't work well with regular face powder.
I really like this brush--I bought it specifically to carry in my purse for application on the go. So far I have no complaints except that I wish the bristles were just a tad more stiff. But the trade off of them being so soft does make up for it.
Great for on-the-go
It's great how easy it is to store this brush, and how the stiffness is controllable, but I do wish the bristles were a little stiffer--when I'm putting on blush, and I need the full coverage of the brush, I feel like the bristles go in weird directions, instead of doing the full-out spread like I need it to.
Perfect blush/powder brush
I use this brush for blush, but I imagine it would work as a face powder brush just as well. Love that it retracts to protect it from getting so dirty in the makeup bag. Perfect for travel.
Soft!!!! Soft!!! Did I mention soft?!
Love this brush for basic makeup application. I rarely wear facial makeup and this is the perfect and simplest tool to use for me. Thank you for a clean tool to apply makeup when I'm feeling insecure.
Such a great brush, slightly too large
What a great brush. I know other reviewers have thought that it wasn't stiff enough, but I was looking for exactly this kind of brush. It is nice and fluffy, and b/c I have a pretty large face, having it spread out a bit when you use it actually works to my advantage, b/c I can cover more area faster (kidding but not). The brush is soft, although I haven't cleaned it yet so I'm not sure how it is going to feel after it gets cleaned. But for now, it is great. I just wish it were slightly smaller to fit better into my makeup bags and smaller purses.
I did not realize this brush has no actual makeup powder in it...the description led me to think it was a fancy brush that you click to release the baked powder. I was wrong! It is just an overpriced makeup brush. It does not pick up blushes or powders well.
Super soft bristles and convenient
I really like this. I keep it in a little pouch in my purse for using my Bare Minerals compact. I like it much better than my mini BM brush because it fits in a case so the brush doesn't bend.
Got this brush a few days ago and I've been using it with my powdered blush. Goes on smoothly and I love that it is protected and fits in my make-up bag.
I love that this brush is retractable. As a person who travels with all her make-up (and as a germophobe), it's nice not to have to worry about your brush getting other makeup on it, or getting the bristles damaged when it's packed up in a bag.
