This is the best mineral foundation brush ever. Period. I got this in a swap, and i plan on obtaining another soon, in case EDM ever discontinues it (for what insane reason i can not fathom!). The price is good for such a good quality brush ($10 if bought separate, and even cheaper if bought in a kit). The bristles are the softest i have ever felt, and washing it does not change the texture. I believe the bristes are synthetic, but i've never felt a synthetic brush so soft. I think b/c they are synthetic, is the reason that the brush comes so clean so quickly when i wash it (i use baby wash). I have not had ONE bristle shed yet. The handle is the perfect length and thickness, and the bamboo handle makes it look pretty too! WAYYY better than ANY Bare Escentuals brush out there (i am a recent convert over to EDM). I cannot say enough good things about this brush!
This brush has made a huge difference in how my makeup looks. I made a few mistakes when first using, as it tends to pick up a lot of minerals and can deposit them heavily if you are not careful... I usually tap it on a few different spots prior to buffing it in. I switched to the flat top brush after using a more expensive Bare Minerals brush and am very pleased. Easy to clean, too.
best brush ever!!! sooooooooooooooooooo soft!!!! and cheap and works perfectly! i like to rub it on my face even though i'm not even wearing makeup
This is the softest brush ever! I saw a similar Sonia Kashuk flat top brush @ Target which is $14, and had already ordered this online so I decided to hold off on that one. I am so glad I did! For the price, this is just as soft and applies my foundation flawlessly. I am very curious to try with my liquid foundation now - didn't think to use it for that! The reason why I took off 1 lippie is due to that fact that on the EDM website the brush look a bit larger, and when I recieved it, I thought it was tiny. Also, the handle is stumpy, BUT it does the job just fine. I probably wouldn't buy this again, only because I have to wait for it in the mail, and I do wish the handle was just a bit longer. Overall, an excellent quality brush.
This brush has washed well for me.
I never thought I would be converted away from goats hair brushes but this is softer and stays soft in the wash.
It also stands up to being swirled in mineral powder which I think damages soft hair brushes.
I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said. World's softest brush... ahhhh... I'm rubbing on my face right now. The density is perfect. The handle is a perfect size. I've used mine daily for close to a year now, and the bristles look as good as the day it came in the mail. I just ordered another in a kit (such a good price) in case they stop making it or something tragic like that.
This is like the best brush ever. Really great quality, has never shed and a great affordable price. I have 2 already and am definately gonna get another one soon.
*Love* this brush. It's soo soft and gives great coverage for EDM's mineral foundation. It doesn't shed either like cheap brushes do, even though it's only $10 (or less if you buy it in a kit!) I want to stock up on these in case they ever stop selling them!
The best brush I have ever owned so far. The bristles are soft and dense. Easy to control and use. I will definitely purchase more of this wonderful brush from EDM.
OK, so I have been using this brush with my Everyday Minerals Foundation for a long while now and have loved the results. The brush is so soft and so smooth, evironmentally friendly (synthetic hairs and bamboo handle), and is so inexpensive! But what is bringing me to write this review now is that I have just discovered how wonderful this brush is to use with LIQUID foundation. Let me just say that I have totally ditched my MAC 187 for liquid application! I have been using this brush with MUFE HD Foundation, and the results are flawless. I just pump the foundation directly onto the brush (the bristles are so dense that it just sits there!) and then dab it around my face. Then I gently buff it in and the foundation just melts into my skin. I have just been totally floored by this brush (first with mineral, now with liquid!), it is so amazing! I think this is the only foundation brush I will EVER need - it really does it all! In fact I already own 2 of them! One thing I have noticed is that as the brush ages, the bristles loosen up a bit and the brush loses a bit of its firmness, but it still performs perfectly. It also takes forever to dry after washing but otherwise this brush has got everything going for it! I highly recommend this brush and I would repurchase it over and over again!!!
