I cant rave enough about this brush, I have 2 on the go and want a couple more honestly.
I use this brush for my foundation and it gives me such a flawless airbrushed look that I cant even imagine using anything else.
I pour a little foundation on the back of my hand (Ive been using Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundaton for a year, I love it) and pick up some with this brush and buff it onto my face.
I use the other one for my pressed powders.
Seriously, try this brush, its $3. Even if YOU dont personally like it, its worth a shot, but I need a few back ups.
I honestly do not understand anyone who raves about this brush. Throwing foundation on your face is better than using this. Yes, at 3 dollars, it is very very cheap. But if you think about it, those 3 dollars will add up eventually because not only does this brush shed, it will get nasty after a few uses and you will have to purchase a new one. I suggest checking out sedona lace, sigma, eco tools or real technique brushes. They are on the 9-15 dollar range but they will last you a long time and they make foundation look flawless on your skin.

I HAVE JUST BEEN CONVERTED INTO A BRUSH USER FOR FOUNDATION! I picked this lovely little brush up last night at Target, remembering all the great reviews. I just used it this morning to apply my mac sff and i LOVE it!! That's a lot for me to say considering I've hated using brushes for foundation forever. I have tried a bunch and always hated the way my makeup looked. But now I am convinced! This brush barely absorbed any product, it all went on my face. It blended extremely well and gave me full coverage without streaks! I can't even describe how excited I am about this brush, and the fact that it's $3, you can't beat that. Love!!!
Wonderful brush. I have purchased brushes similar to this one but more expensive and they really dont match up to the greatness of this one! i have acne prone skin especially on my cheeks, and I'm left with minor scars and this brush helps to really set my foundation and give me the perfect coverage! Cannot go wrong with the price, I really reccomend this brush ladies!
So I bought this with the intention of using it for foundation. Verdict? This brush applies product well, and can blend it out just as great. Somehow the bristles don't absorb the products which i love so I don't waste more than i should. The only negative i have about it is that the bristles bleed a bit when i wash it and the handle is kinda loose, and i havent even done anything to it. I have replaced this brush so I rarely use it but nonetheless if youre on a budget this is a good one!
This is a brush that truly deserves all the great reviews its getting!! I bought this brush after reading the reviews here and its lived up to every claim.
Product: Its awesomely soft and the bristles are densely packed enough for you to use this brush for foundation. I've been using this brush for my powder foundation for about 2 months now and I haven't had any problems with bristles dropping out or anything. I clean my brush with some shampoo and am careful to make sure that the water doesn't get into the brush handle.
Application: This brush is so soft that it made my blush brush (which I felt was the softest brush ever) feel rough against my face! I was so amazed.
Effect: It made my powder foundation look flawless on my face and much more polished than other brushes. I haven't tried this brush with liquid foundation yet but I can say that for powder foundation, the finer the powder the more flawless your face looks, and this brush goes a long way in picking up all the fine powder and making it look flawless on your face.
Overall: Great brush, and for the awesome price, definitely worth repurchasing. In fact, I loved it so much after 1 week that I went back to repurchase a spare in case my brush gives way.
I really like this brush. I use it to apply my powder foundation when I decide not to wear liquid foundation. I have never tried it on my liquid foundation but I don't think I would like it. It seems like it would waste too much product. Anyway, its pretty dense and the bristles are so soft. It doesn't shed and I've had it for almost 3 years.The only con is the handle broke but nothing a little glue can't fix plus I only got it for $3. I would certainly purchase this brush again.
I haven't tried many brushes to put liquid foundation on (i've only used this and a stippling brush), but honestly i don't feel the need to. This brush blends liquid foundation in so quickly and easily and makes it look flawless. It cost me around $4 plus shipping, so super duper cheap. If it breaks, i'll repurchase, too good to not have in your collection.
I absolutely enjoy this brush. I can't explain how soft but dense this brush is. I told one of my sisters I make love to this brush with my foundation. Lol. Lately I've been wearing a dime size of Revlon Nearly Naked in medium tan mixed with Mary Kay concealer in Bronze 1 stippled over my whole face. And then I apply N.Y.X. Stay matte but not flat powder foundation in Sienna very lightly. I dust a mixture of Hersheys natural coco powder, Benefits Get Even blotting powder mashed finely in 02, and also baby powder over my face to set. This works for me. I don't have anything bad to say about this brush. I recommend for if you are looking for a very afordable brush that can be used to apply liquids, creams, or powders. I will repurchase if I have to.
i have been watching alot of youtube videos on how to apply makeup because im getting older and makeup always set on my face oddly. i ordered this brush and used the stippling method and my face looks flawless. im so happy i found this brush.
