No shedding at all! I find this is a perfect shape for my cheeks,it carries the product well and i can use this brush for bronzing. Supper soft and nicely packaged. I payed £10 for this brush not dirt cheap and not expensive. I've recommended this to my sister and my friend. Nice job on the brushes Sam!
Update: I've found this works best as a bronzer.
The shape of the domed blush looked smaller when it was in the package, but when I took it out to use it, it got more fluffier, thus, less easy to apply blush to certain areas of my cheeks. As all the other reviews has stated, this brush is very high quality, nicely packaged, and SOOOO CUTE!!! But is it worth it to sacrifice looks over functionality? Well that's up to you. I didn't plan on getting this, but i needed to spend another 6 bucks at ulta to use the $3.50 off coupon. So I chose this as a filler. I'm not going to return it, because i'm going to choose looks over functionality for this one and plus it was cheap and i used a coupon. But based on functionality, it deserves only 2 lippies. I end up having two huge blobs of blush on my face. It would have been better if the brush was smaller for applying blush, but I wished it was bigger to apply powder. So far I havent found something to use it for, so it's just standing upright looking pretty on my vanity. Also, the bulky bottom is not practical since all of my brushes are stuck in a glass jar filled with rice.
I recommend buying the ecotools blush brush. That one applies blush wonderfully and places the blush where you want it to be.
This brush would have been a great brush if it was smaller. I do like how it comes to a domed point. The bristles are very soft and fluffy and because of that it does not pick up as much blush as some of my other brushes.
I tend to use this brush with pigmented blushes since it does not pick up as much pigment. It gives a lovely finish to the skin.
I'm not a fan of the fat rubber handle. It does not travel well or fit into my brush holder on my vanity.
This brush is a dream. It's cute and pink, stands on its own, is super soft, doesn't shed, is perfectly shaped for applying blush to the apples of your cheeks, and it's price is soo cheap. Seriously cannot find one fault and it could have a higher end brand name stamped onto it for sure. It seems to just airbrush my blush right onto my cheeks, I never have any harsh lines or get an uneven look.
This is such a great brush for the price. After 15+ washes it has retained its original shape and looks exactly how it did when I bought it. Like another reviewer said, this brush (along with all of the other Real Techniques brushes I have) have not shed one hair throughout continuous use and washing. This brush is great for picking up color and diffusing it on to the cheekbones - it blends without you having to do any of the work!
I have been using this brush every day since I bought it two months ago because I just can't go back to using anything else. I've washed it many times and it still looks exactly as it did in the store, I don't think one bristle has fallen out. It's very soft, it has a nice shape and a slightly pointed tip which makes application more precise. It can stand on its own which might bother some people but I'm okay with it. Considering the high quality and how affordable it is I think it's more than worth having it in your collection.
This is a very nice brush that could be used for more than just blush. It'd be great with regular powder too. Nice and soft but not so soft it won't blend color nicely. The shape of it is gorgeous!
I wanted this brush for a while now but it was always sold out when I looked for it or I just figured I didn't need it. I finally got it and I was initially disappointed when I opened it because it felt different than expected. It felt cheaper or more plastic than other brushes that looked similar or used similar bristles, but I was wrong. No other blush brush I have used performs or feels the same way on my face. It is gentle but not annoyingly and pointlessly too soft. The shape applies brush extraordinarily well, applying it and blending it without wiping it off. I like it better than my MAC brushes (129, 182, 165, 109) for blush application and would repurchase.
UPDATE: I washed the brush for the second time and experienced A LOT of shedding. Not just a few strands, but a few chunks. I am always very careful about how I wash and dry my brushes because I know water in the ferrule of the brush is harmful, so I think it is definitely the brush. I still love it and am going to assume that I got a defective one, but it is important to note just in case others are experiencing this too.
This is now my go to blush brush. I love love love it... it's very soft, kind of on the larger side but since it does come to a bit of a point I don't find this to be a problem. I am a big blush person so I was thrilled as to how well this applied. It seems to be good quality and holds up well with regular use and washing. The only issue I have is that if you have a smaller sized blush (think CG cheekers...) it's more difficult to use, but I usually have this same problem with other blush brushes!
PROS: soft, applies color well, nice design, inexpensive
CONS: some may not like how large it is
Perfect for finishing powders and bronzers. Too big for blush. Amaizingly soft. Does not change original shape. I love it.
