I LOVE this brush! it is my HG face brush because it is so soft and fluffy and I can use it to do my whole face. I use it for powder, blush, bronzer, and I spray some fix + on it and dab it over my face for a nice finish.
I have paid much more for mac brushes that I don't even use so this was a very good purchase for me. LOVE IT!
this brush is fantastic, i'm so glad i bought it. i use it with both pressed and loose powders and it gives a perfectly even application and it's really soft and just a pleasure to use. i also love the way it looks, the curved handle is not only comfortable in the hand but it's attractive as well.
huge huge fan, i'll definitely be buying more of these in the future. i also have the blush brush from the same collection with the black curvy handles and i love it just as much. awesome value, i'd pay more for these.
This is the best brush I have ever owned. Divinely soft bristles and air brused look. It sheds a little but is still my favorite. I love it more than MAC 150
I have the white- handled brush, and I bought it from Target for around $11.00. The brush is really soft and applies my powder well. But it sheds like crazy! I hate having to pick hairs off my face when I am trying to apply my makeup.
I can't live without this brush. I use this brush everyday and wash it about once a week. Ive had it for 6 months and it's as soft ( oh and this brush is one of the softest I have every felt) as when I bought it still in the same exact shape. I use it for all over face powder (mineral veil) and for bronzer sometimes as well. Don't waste your money on MAC's all over powder brushes. This one is even better.
So I got the white-handled one first and I didn't think it was particularly soft. Actually, I felt it was kind of scratchy. I ended up throwing it out after a month of use. But on a whim, I decided to try the one with the black curvy handle. I found that one a lot softer and I really like using it. My problem with the packaging is the plastic case isn't quite wide enough and the top closes on some of the hairs on the brush. Other than that, it's a great product. I use it with my NYC pressed translucent powder to set my makeup.
Edit: I think I like using my EcoTools retractable kabuki better than this. EcoTools is a lot softer.
Edit (again): now, I've been using this for a light dusting of bronzer (Too Faced Chocolate Soleil) on the top of my forehead, temples, jaw, and cheekbones for a very natural, but still slightly enhanced look.
Edit x3: I've also been using this for a light contoured look, which I'm loving! Upping the rating from a 4 to a 5 because this is my go-to everyday/natural contouring brush.
This review is for the white handled powder brush. I've had it for about 2 weeks and so far so good. It is super soft, picks up just the right amount of product, and applies my powder foundation flawlessly. I've also had less shedding from this brush than I've had with some of my MAC brushes. Good quality for the price.
This is for the white handled brush, which is, from what I can tell, very similar to the black handled one except perhaps a little less dense. I use this for my MSFs and any loose shimmer or translucent finishing powder. It applies very evenly and applies just the right amount of product. I love Sonia Kashuk brushes, they are all fabulous and are on par with products that are double and even triple the price.
This brush is really soft. It does shed but very little. You can clean it with soap and water so you save on cleaning solution. The only thing about this brush is that it does smell once it gets wet. That's the thing that bothers me quite a bit. Other than that, it's a good brush to have. It's really 3.5 stars that I'm giving.
I have the SK "Tools" powder brush, with the curvy black handle. I LOVE this brush - it's incredibly soft, dense bristles, and feels much more expensive than it actually is. $20 might seem like a lot for something from Target but this brush is just as good, possibly better, than much more expensive brushes I have felt and tried - when I needed a powder brush I was deciding between this, Urban Decay's, or Smashbox. I went with the SK one because it was the cheapest, I'm very glad I did, the quality is fantastic! The curvy handle feels great in your hand, feels balanced so it's easy to handle (not too light like some cheaply made brushes), it feels expensive - it's very well made. Though it may not be important to some, I also think the SK Tools black handled brushes are also very attractive, I would like to build a full set out of them (currently I have this powder brush and the foundation brush) It picks up a good amount of powder and distributes it evenly. I use it to lightly dust NARS loose powder over my foundation and it works fabulously. I think it will last me a long time but if I happened to lose it (or wear it out way, way down the road) I would repurchase in an instant, without question. This is my favorite brush, I use it every day!
