I am greatly impressed with this brush. It is synthetic and works fantasicly with liquid foundation. It has a nicer width too more than other foundation brushes, more oval. It is thicker than my sephora 56 airbrush foundation brush and I think that makes this brush actually work much better. The price of this brush is inexpensive and it produces a wonderful finish with different types of foundation.
I bought this brush 2 weeks ago and haven't put it down since.
It produces a flawless finish with every foundation, just love it and have recommended it to everyone. My fav brush so far.
I love this brush soooo much! It gives such a flawless finish to my foundation, even the drier ones, and it's just so quick! I have the stippling brush as well and although I really like that one for my foundation too, I regularly pick this one instead, as it takes about 2 minutes to buff my foundation in so well that my I look like I'm wearing hardly any foundation.
edit: I also use this with my bronzer and my cream blushes. This is sucha great multitasker!
I use this brush with my Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and it gives a perfect, buffed airbrushed look. It spreads just the right amount of product!
EDIT: I do find that this brush sheds the slightest bit. I'll find one of two hairs on my face after every few uses, causing me to take this from a 5-lipstick to a 4-lipstick rating.
I bought this brush about a week ago, and I have been in love ever since. I went out and got it because I had been trying a new foundation that I loved, but the brushes I already owned weren't giving me the application that I wanted, so I went to youtube and I saw some videos of people using the foundation with this brush and I loved the results. I loved it so much that a couple days ago I ordered two other brushes from the line, the blush brush and the fine liner brush.
I have a confession to make. I have never used any kind of foundation brush to apply my makeup. I have always used either a little wedge sponge or my fingers. I don't use much foundation just a few drops on my cheeks forehead and chin. But I heard so much about Sam Chapman's brushes and decided to buy this expert face brush.
This has been a revelation! This brush is very dense and helps my foundation go on smoothly. I also have very dry, sensitive skin with mild rosacea, so I was nervous that the brush might irritate. It is so soft on my face! The real wonder is the finish I get on my skin. I have been fortunate all my life to have good skin, but using this brush makes my skin look flawless! I get great coverage and a gorgeous finish. I am not crazy about synthetic brushes, but this one is so well made. Great quality! The brush takes some effort to clean. The product just sinks right into the dense bristles. But it holds its shape well. I have had no shedding at all. Needless to say, I am thrilled with the results! Using a face brush can be a good thing! It's never too late to learn new and better ways to apply makeup. I was so pleased that I bought the starter kit for eyes. I had similar great results. These brushes are a keeper!
On a day where I feel like I need more coverage, this brush is perfect. It is really soft and spreads my tinted moisturizer or foundation quite beautifully.
This brush is an AMAZING inexpensive buy. I've been looking to replace my ELF flat top brushes for liquid foundation application, and heard all the rave reviews on this, so decided to order it. It's a great brush, dries within a few hours of washing (vs. my ELF's and Sonia Kashuk flat top, which take 1-2 days to dry), and is able to easily get into spots like under the eyes and around the nose easily. Love this!
Bought at Ulta for $9 after hearing all the hype
* Great for blending, applying and buffing! It's good for Liquid foundation, BB cream or mineral powder
* Bristles are dense
* It feels great on my face and reaches the hard to get areas with ease! (jaw, under eye, temples)
* Cheaper alternative!
* Noticed light shedding, at first, has not shed since the first time I washed
I bought this with a coupon at ULTA for a great price. What a wonderful, well made, high quality soft brush! I love it, I've bought the cheap brushes that people claim are really good but they don't even come close to this quality. Like those ECO tools brushes...lame compared to this! I am using mine for mineral makeup it holds the product great and applies wonderfully!
