I bought this almost a year ago and I used to use it for my bronzer and setting powder. I don't use it for setting powder anymore (i prefer a kabuki or the ecotools bronzer brush for that since they're denser and buff the powder more evenly) but if you like to set your makeup with a fluffy brush this is perfect. What impresses me the most about this brush is that it's the only brush I can use out of my ENTIRE giant collection of brushes to apply blush. I've tried every single blush brush out there and this powder brush beats them all. I tie it with a rubber band in the middle of the brush hairs to make it smaller and denser and I can't explain how, but it puts on blush, bronzer and highlighter perfectly!!! Once you tie it with an elastic, you can shape it into an angled brush, a dome shaped brush (exactly like the 190 which I also own) and a blush brush! It`s like 4 brushes in 1! I own 2 of this brush so I can use one for blush and one for bronzer and highlighter and I haven`t seen either one shed a single hair! I love this brush!
Like everyone said, this is probably the best and softest powder brush you'll find without spending a small fortune on the higher-end brushes. I LOVE using this brush on my skin so, so much! It doesn't pick up a whole lot of powder at once, so it's great for gently swiping or stippling on some powder to set a foundation or to get rid of shine. It's also great for all-over use because it's gentle enough that it won't wipe away any concealer (or foundation) that you've already set down. I use the Ecotools kabuki brush for powder foundations though, so I'm not sure how well this one works in that aspect...
brilliant , no hairs have ever fallen out defo recommend to go buy one : )
I have tried several powder brushes with both synthetic and natural fibers and surprise surprise this cheap one is my favorite. (Note: others I've tried include MAC, Urban Decay, Too Faced, Posh.) The handle is a wonderful light weight bamboo and the ferrule is nice and tight. Some cheaper powder brushes seem to be loose in the ferrule and a lot of bristles shed, but I've never experienced this with my EcoTools brush. I also love that the bristles are synthetic and the handle is bamboo, which is one of the best renewable materials around. I plan on picking up as many of the rest of the EcoTools brushes that I can to complete my collection.
Truly a great inexpensive and efficient powder brush. It has a bamboo handle that really feels sturdy and not cheap even though it has a cheap price. The bristles are really soft and does not itch my sensative skin. I have read that some don't think it picks up enough powder. However it picks ups a decent amount (actually it can pick up a lot with more dabbing). I really doubt you would want to dust a thick coating of powder on your face all at once anyways. Other PROS: does not shed, eco-friendly, packaging is in a zip-lock plastic (reusable), good size, NOT scratchy and very soft/gentle on the skin. Ladies in Canada, this is so much better than the Quo brush at SDM which are 2x the price for lower quality.
I only have good things to say about this brush! Being only 15, I'm not able to spend tons of money on my makeup collection, despite how much I love it, and this brush is perfect for me. It's good to the earth, and cruelty-free which I LOVE because I recently found out how many companies do testing on animals, and i'm trying to get away from animal testing companies. It's soft, and huge, and picks up product amazingly. I couldn't stop brushing it on my face when I bought it, it sounds silly, but it's SO SOFT! It was insanely inexpensive, I bought mine for $6 CDN. I'm working on purchasing the entire line, this brush is amazing! I've washed it several times, and it hasn't shed yet. I'm very impressed with it, I would definitley buy it again If I had to.
This is the most amazing brush I ever found! I normally not into cheap stuff but after forgetting my Chanel brushes in my Trip to San Francisco I needed a quick replacement and I couldn't find the closets Sephora store but found these instend at Target. Its very similar to my Chanel Brushes. I used it practically on everything my Lancome admande Powder and Chanel Blush and Burberry Bronzer and Yves Saint Laurent eclat concealer and my Armani luminous finish its just amazingI will definitly! be carrying this around in forever in my Gucci Croc bag its the cheapest thing i found. Its good for the Earth very very soft could careless about animals since I own a collection of fur coats.
I havnt really used many brushes before but i love this brush. Its dirt cheap, soft and ive had it for like half a year and it hasnt lost any hairs. I use it to apply my powder foundation and it covers my face well. I will buy this over and over and over
This has been the softest brush I have purchased, and I have no complaints. I use it to set my mineral powder after applying liquid foundation and the finish is great. This is also great for someone who is a drugstore fan and is on a budget, because we know that times are tough and we ALL can't be spending lots of money on makeup brushes.. ahem MAC. But anyways, I hope you ladies give this brush a chance because its GREAT.
I bought this brush partially for the price, and partially because I already own the 5 piece brush set and I thought the brushes were great. This brush, like all the others, was incredibly inexpensive for the quality of the brush. The brush is full, but not too dense, which is perfect in a powder brush. This brush allows for the sheerest distribution of powder, and it's so incredibly soft and luxurious, that I end up grabbing for it more than my MAC powder brushes. I also use this for sheer layers of bronzer and it's performed well in both categories. Not only would I buy it again, I intend to purchase a few more for my kit.
