I had previously bought an eye brush from Revlon and I really liked it, so when I saw this brush on clearance in Ulta I decided to buy it. The blush brush comes in a thick, clear plastic bag. The label says it is made of "natural" hair, whatever that means. The handle is red and black, and it is the length of most brands' travel brushes. I actually don't mind a short handle because I am very nearsighted and I get really close to the mirror when I do my makeup. It picks up blush well and deposits and blends fine. However, this brush feels very scratchy on my face. It's also shed a few hairs on my face, which I can't stand. Perhaps there is a quality control problem with Revlon's blush brush because there are several reviews here that praise it. I, however, won't be purchasing another to test that theory.
Bought this on sale down from £8.99 to £5.99, and it still was not worth the £6 price tag. It's lovely and soft which is great but it picks up no product at all from my bourjois compact blush, and even when blending softer blushes in to my cheeks it just sheds black plasticty hairs all over my face which is a pig.
Don't buy it, seriously there are much better and cheaper blusher brushes everywhere. I have no idea why some people love this but maybe I'm just missing the point. I'll stick to my mini brush I got in an old benefit blush from now on.
No thanks Revlon.
I use this for my blush but it can also be used for powder. This brush is so soft and when you wash it, it does not shead as much as the MAC 129. It blends my blush very well and I would repurchase this
This purchase was a mistake ~ I've been on a continuous search for the perfect blush brush, and I decided to try the new red and black Revlon brushes. The brush arrived in a very thick plastic cover, which was the best thing about the brush. The handle on this brush is short, and it looks like a travel brush. When I applied my blush, the brush shed immediately, and it's not soft at all. I'll end up putting this in my purse for quick touch-ups, and I won't buy this brush again...
Lovely blush brush. The size and shape are just right for applying brush and bronzer. It tapers nicely. I'm totally content with this brush and feel no need to purchase a MAC one; something that isn't the case for some of my other inexpensive brushes. It *does* shed a little (not a lot though) and bleed (not when it's dry though), and at one point the handle fell off (but I glued it back on with superglue and since then, it has stayed on). In spite of all these faults for some reason I really enjoy this brush. It can make blush as subtle or as obvious as you like depending on how heavy a hand you use and the shape is just right. I've had it so long I can't remember when I got it and it still works really well.
Excellent alternative to a MAC blush brush. High quality brush with a brand name that you can trust. I am pleased with this purchase and would recommend to my friends.
I bought this and several other Revlon brushes on sale. I think that it works just fine for blush. The shape of it reminds me of the MAC 109. It is flat, so it can really pick up a lot of product. I would repurchase during a BOGO sale, for instance.
I really like this brush. Not as good as sonia kashuk, which I think are the best d/s brushes (and brushes period) out there, but worth the money. I like the shape and it's held up well. Picks up good amount of product and is never streaky and blends well
While agree that this brush doesn't quite have the quality high-quality blush brushes, I still find it to be a great brush. It's cheap, yet still manages to effectively hold and deposit color. The application is sheer, which is what I prefer when using blush. The softly tapered bristles also allow for easy blending. The goat bristles are definitely the softest I've felt in a lower-end brush. The bristles have been harvested so that the tips are tapered, making the brush not prickly on my sensitive face. I have also never had a problem with shedding, and I have used this brush for several years. I bought it after being disappointed with some higher-end blush brushes. It turns out that I preferred this little guy to squirrel or pony-blend high-end brushes. I don't think it is a brush for everyone, but if you want firm, tapered bristles in a round ferrule, then you might want to spend the several dollars. I like the red plastic handle despite the fact that all my other brushes have wooden handles. It reminds me of the Kevyn Aucoin brushes that I have been eyeing for years, but still haven't been able to test in person.
Overall, I would say this brush is worth a try!
I think for the price this is a top brush. It has a perly handle and its soft and strong.
The only thing I don't like about it is being a little on the short side. It comes inside a plastic bag! Don't regret buying!
