I love how soft, big, and fluffy this brush is. It works great for bronzing as well. I like the sturdy feeling of the handle. The only negative is that bristles do fall out - atleast three each use. It costs too much for a brush that looses that many bristles.
This is for the white handle brush - I've never had a brush that sheds so much in my life. It's not like every once in a while i end up with hairs on my face.. it's every time i use it. It gets really annoying to have to constantly pick the shedding hairs off my face all the time. Other than that though, the brush is nice and soft and gives me a nice dusting of my power over my foundations.
oh mah gawd this brush shed like THIRTY bristles over my face this morning-WTH? i bought this SK brush because of rave youtube reviews-seriously?! i have no issues spending more money on a quality brush but for $20.00 i expected better than this. it got all in my eyes too and onto my contacts. i am so disappointed. the size of the brush is fine but its just nasty that all the bristles are all over my face afterwards. i had to use my bare minerals powder brush to brush it all off. i am SO returning this to target today!!
I purchased this brush to apply my Revlon colorstay loose mineral powder foundation and it didn't give me the results that I wanted so I returned it.
In the brushes defense I did not try using it with pressed or non mineral powders.
The brush is soft and fluffy and that just didn't work out for me, I needed a denser brush I guess.
I love it. It has a great angle making blending easier, it is soft, and long lasting.
This is the only (inexpensive) powder brush I can use that doesn't flare up my sensitive skin. Many brushes cause my face to have an itchy rash than can last hours, so I was happy when I grabbed this one. I love the curved handle, which makes application nice and comfortable. The bristles are soft and don't shed during application. Also, it's lasted hundreds of washes (baby shampoo or olive oil) and has maintained perfectly.
Great brush with wonderful price!!! I don't use pricey brushes; this is actually the highest priced one I've ever had, but it's totally worth it! I only apply light powder foundation after sunlotion, and I usually do it with a big blush to make a natural look. This brush feels really smooth and works perfectly, and its angle makes it so easy to brush certain area (eg sides of my nose). Also, unlike other brushes I've used, the oil from my face (from moisturizer or sunlotion) doesn't stay on it.
This is a review for the white-handled brush. I really do love this powder brush and have been using the same brush for over two years - It has great lasting quality if you take good care of it. The brush is very soft and I have never found it scratchy or uncomfortable. It easily picks up lots of product and distributes both pressed and loose powder evenly. HG powder brush, great price, highly recommend!
This is for the BLACK handled brush. (Sidenote: I find all the black handled brushes are worth the extra 5 bucks or so. They don't shed as much and will last a lot longer!)
This brush is extremely soft, and I find that it rarely sheds. I use it to apply a light dusting of powder. I find that it works better with loose powder than pressed powder, as it doesn't pick up as much product. If you're wanting thicker coverage, you might want a brush that's a bit more dense (such as EcoTools Bronzer Brush). This brush is good for apply a very light layer of powder and/or using it with no product on it to blend out bronzer/blush/contour.
I bought this brush about 2 weeks ago for applying my MAC Prep and Prime loose powder. I looooove it. Its very soft, powder applies like a dream. It actually pics up product like its suppose to. Not floppy at all
