I have tried all of the "popular" foundation brushes - including the one that everyone raves about - Shiseido. The Sonia Kashuk pointed foundation brush is my favorite foundation brush - its cheap and gets into all the tight spots on your face - worth every penny!!
I recently purchased this item out of curiosity and so far I actually love it. I do think it is a little small for a foundation brush but it worked out fine. Finally got a brush that doesn't leave streak marks I was so amazed especially for the price. I wasn't expecting the results I got. The shape is great because it can get in all the spots like under eyes and nose. For the price it's such a great buy was a lot better than my MAC foundation brush that left streaks.
Like everybody said, it is great for blending concealer rather than foundation. The size and shape make it easy to use even on places like the side of your nose. And it's soft. Doesn't leave Streak mark.
It's always good to have a nice brush like this to make the procedures quick and easy. For $12.99 this brush is a good investment.
As others have mentioned, this brush is perfect for concealer!!! I use it for under my eyes and the pointed side for spot-concealing. Is perfect! I also use it for my foundation sometimes, it spreads a nice thin layer but is too small and I take longer to finish... I will buy a bigger foundation brush for my entire face and keep using this for concealer. It has not shade a single hair for the 4 months that I've had it and it's easy to clean. I think it's a little bit expensive but it's worth it :)
I picked this only because of the rave reviews this has gotten on YT and here on MUA. Otherwise it is not something I would have thought to pick up. Happy I did. I love it for concealer. I think it's a tad small for a full face of foundation, but for concealer and it works wonderfully. Blends it out fantastically without picking up too much product. It is a super soft brush as well. Really glad I picked it up. Another SK brush that rocks.
for foundation brush, this is small but works great as concealer brush
ithis makes it smoothly blended and very well applied on my skin ,little bit pricy .
Like a lot of previous reviewers have said, I prefer to use this brush for applying CONCEALER, not foundation. I think I tried using it to apply foundation once and gave up halfway through. As for concealer, however, this brush is a GEM. I love it. It blends extremely well and is easy to clean. I have not had any shedding.
I really love this brush. I didn't like the flat ones because they didn't do much for my foundation...I was just kind of painting it on. But with this I can buff it in for a flawless finish. It also gets around my nose and eyes really well. I also use it for undereye concealer. For $12 definitely a great purchase.
I have been using his for a week with my liquid foundation. I use a matte foundation that dries quicker than most foundations. This brush is great for that. It blends really well and I can either swipe it like a flat brush or use it to buff as well. I like swiping my makeup on first then buffing it in for a little better blending. Overall a good buy. I think I will grab a second one for my cream blush and see how it works.
I got this brush a very long time ago, simply because I didn't have another brush like it and I knew from experience that SK brushes are great quality. Well, I found it extremely awkward for applying foundation. It just did not work well for that purpose for me, and I couldn't find another use for it either, so it has just been sitting useless for a really long time. However, I recently found that it does a great job at blending under eye concealer! I use Amazing Cosmetics concealer under my eyes and this is great for blending it. The pointed shape fits the under eye area well and I think using a larger blending brush for that area just blends better and less streaky than a smaller brush.
