an odd brush. it is small for the task of blending. it is probably ok to use for blush or face shading. the brush sheds slightly. the bristle is ok, soft but not that soft. the brush size is too small for my opinion.
Works. A lot of product gets stuck in the brush - perhaps just noticable because of the white bristles.
Sheds a little, but not too bad.
useless. U don't need to buy this brush, everything you will be putting on your face (blush, bronzer, powder..) you will do with other brushes. I don't seem to find a real reason for this expensive purchase.
I love this brush!!! such a great quality I got it in a set back in 2008 and I still use it !!! It a permanent item in my makeup bag!! love it! and the best part is, it never gets stained and after I clean it, it just looks brand new!!!
I actually don't like using this brush with shimmer bricks or blush. It applies product too sheerly, and as a result, I'd eventually experience difficulty with getting an even application. However, while I was on the hunt for the perfect foundation brush I tested out all the blush brushes I own. This, by far, delivered the best results. The brisltes are pretty dense (suprisingly, not scratchy) and thick, so it really gives FULL coverage. Doesn't absorb a lot of product either, so you get the most mileage out of your foundation for sure. If you own this brush, I seriously recommend you try it with your liquid foundation.
I have never seen an ivory colored brush, and this brush is a standout item both in the packaging department and the performance department. This medium sized face brush is made of natural bristles, and in my opinion performs much better than synthetic bristles. It has a dense brush head and this is crucial if you want an even, airbrushed finish. I enjoy using this beautiful brush every time. Has lasted me four full years too!
I have the mini version of this as it came with my shimmer brick. But i love using this for blush! It's really good :) doesn't scratch the face and haven't experience with shredding.
I can use this brush for just about anything. From face powder, contouring, blush... It's a universal brush for sure and I love the finish it gives to any product I apply. This brush evenly blends everything. The shape of the brush is special....it's unlike any other brush I have tried and have...this is one of my most reached brush. If I lost this today, I would go get one tomorrow!
I got the full size brush along with the shimmerbrick. Yes, it applies powders (bronzer, shimmerbrick, blush) beautifully and exactly where you want it, BUT it sheds and is a bit scratchy. I have to make sure I close each eye when using this on my cheeks in case the bristles touch or shed into my eyes.
This review is for the mini, travel-sized version of this brush. I bought this because I actually wanted the travel blush brush but at the time the cosmetics outlet I was at didn't have any in any of the collections they were selling. I have a beige Shimmerbrick somewhere but haven't been using it (I guess I'm not a huge fan of the shimmer particles). I didn't really like this brush for blush because I did not find it precise enough; I used it with my La Bella Donna Compact Colour Folio Luminere with good results. I found the brush soft, and could also imagine using it with a setting powder. However, I typically don't use highlighter or setting powder, so I would not repurchase, through no fault of the actual brush.
