Before using this brush I used my fingers, however from now on I will always use this brush! It is that good (although this is the only one I have used so I have nothing to compare against!).
I found my foundation went on much better and blended to create a really natural finish when using this brush and it is very easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone.
I cannot love this brush anymore. This is my first brush, and oh, how lucky I was to go with this one! Yes, it is sort of pricey, but it worths. The one not-that-satisfied point is that for its price, it should come with a case or a better package. I did not have any experience in makeup at all, but the brush helps me to make a very flawless and professional look with my foundation. BTW, the foundation that i use is also from PX. I have recommended it to several friends ans coleagues, and I will continue to do so in the future. I have it for about one month, and it is really so far so great.
I thought it was about time I wrote a review about this-I have had mine about 2 years. This brush is such an incredible workhorse. I have other brushes and even the most expensive has shed to some degree [even if only a little], but I don't think I've lost a hair from this one. It applies foundation smoothly and evenly [both liquid and cream]-I'd hate to go back to getting my hands all gunky. I believe it makes the application process a lot quicker. I clean it by using a spray cleaner, wiping with a papertowel, then rinsing it and air drying. It is very well made and lasts, which helps justify the initial price outlay-$30[US]. In this case you do get what you pay for.
I really, really, really wanted to like this brush but just couldn't!! I tried using it several times with a couple of different brands of foundation without success. My foundation was uneven, streaky, just plain messy-looking. I asked two separate sales associates to show me the proper technique (and even looked up online how to properly use a foundation brush) but just never could get this one to work right. Took it back to the counter and got my money back.
I always used my fingers to apply foundations, but what a difference this makes. It lets you use less foundation, gives a smoother application, a faster application, feels good on the skin, and it is a cleaner way to apply as long as you wash it each time. I really love this. I wish I had given this a try long ago. I shake the foundation liquid, open it and use what's in the cap to the bottle. I dot it on, then stroke in a downward motion. This gives a really natural look. So Pleased!
Great investment! Ill never go back to those make up sponge ever again.
Am so dissapointed with this brush as it didn't blend my foundation at all and left my face all streaky. :(
I usually do not mind spending top price on a good quality product. When the sales lady use this brush on me I know I'll have to get one of my own. I've been using it on a regularbasis for 6 months now. So far it is the best way to get a very natural look out of your foundation. I'll keep buying this again and again.
So glad I bought this! Feels really good on my face, really soft. I tried to save money & bought a cheap foundation brush at first and it was useless. I should have just bought this first. I like how I dont use as much product and it gives a natural foundation. I also use it to apply my moisturizer, concealer, creamy eye shadows, blushes & illuminizing creams. And when I get to the end of a bottle of foundation, I dip this brush in and get every last drop out.
I've bought this brush twice now and each time after a week's use the paint has split and peeled off of the handle. I've not had this experience with any other foundation brush I've owned and I own 3 different brands. My other 3 brushes have a harder enameled handle or plastic in 1 case so the base doesn't split w/ repeated washings. I don't think this is worth the money in any case. If you want a good foundation brush look at Smashbox's foundation brush. Costs about the same as Px but really holds up well even w/ washing it everyday.
