I had really high hopes for this brush. The brush itself felt really soft and it seemed to blend colors all over my face, but despite the softness it was not soft on my face. My face was incredibly flaky due to the brush. I tried to be as gentle with the brush as possible but to no avail. I take care of my skin well and moisturize, but the brush undid all that made me look rashy. I returned it.
Great brush with thick, dense bristles! Used it for all over make-up application and the finish was silky and flawless. It takes getting use to since it is so large but I'd recommend it as a universal application brush
One and Done
I've been using this brush every day for 5 days now, and I love it. I use it for all of my liquid/cream foundation, concealer, blush, highlighter. I'm thrilled with the results. I have not tried it with powder products, as I don't really use powders for much, so I can't speak to that.
As for liquids/creams, however, I love using just 1 tool. Very convenient, applies product evenly. It does shed a little, but not excessively...and a little shedding is normal when a brush is new.
quick easy and flawless
Simply put, this brush is AMAZING. Its makes foundation application blend seamlessly into the skin. For stains and tints it gives you great control. Highlighting and Contouring is super easy- and perfectly placed everytime. Its wonderful for travel and even body bronzers. Its a must.
I really want to love this brush!
There has been a lot of hype of this brush on the internet...and so far I have not seen one negative comment. I bought it from Birchbox on a whim to fill my order for free shipping. I am a sucker for brushes! But I am completely new to using a brush for liquid foundation. The "all in one" claim of this brush was obviously too much for me to resist. And to be honest I have found it to live up to that. I love it for liquid foundation application because I feel like I get way better usage of my product--a sponge sucks up so much product--this leaves all of your product on your face! Plus, it really gives it the airbrushed effect. I then use it to stipple in concealer and always get a flawless finish. As well, I apply blush, bronzer, and highlighter all to flawless finish. All of this and I only wash the brush once a week! The reason is that the product stays on your face and not on the brush. And it cleans like a dream! I think is becomes softer and fluffier with each wash--if that is possible. So what's not to love?? The problem I am having is that it sheds a ton!! I am not yet worried that it is affecting the fullness of this brush but the 10+ fibers a day that I have to pick off my face and clothes is wearing me out! I had hoped it would lessen over time but I have now used it for a month, washed it four times with no change in the shedding. Couple that with the high price tag (which would totally be worth it over time without the shedding) and I'm on the fence as to whether or not this is the tool for me.
