This was also my first foundation brush, so initially I was happy with it too. But as mentioned by a previous reviewer, soon the bristles started to seperate and resembe an animal paw. I have now bought a Paula Dorf foundation brush after the good reviews of it on this site. Have only used it once so far so will see how it goes.
I have a MAC foundation brush, and have had Prescriptives and Paula Dorf's. This brush is one of the new, redesigned brush line, and I love it. The head is fuller than my MAC, and the brush delivers a less streaky, smoother finer application than the others I have had. Highly recommended to all. An excellent choice. My MAC is gathering dust, as I keep reaching for this. Have had it for a month and washed it 4 times, great quality.
It's not too bad, it does apply foundation okay, but the handle is short and the brush leaves streaks...and the bristles are abit hard..
I love Body Shop brushes - they're sleek, soft and very practical. This is a great foundation brush... though I still think it's better to use your fingers. And more fun ;-)
This was my first foundation brush, so initially I was happy with it. But soon the bristles started to seperate, resembling an animal paw! Needless to say, foundation went one incredibly streaky. After this bad experience, I am going to purchase the Bobbi Brown brush and see how it goes. Would not recommend this brush even to my worst enemy!
I found the bristles on this abit too soft and flimsy. I passed it on and got a MAC one which I much prefer. Quite good value for money though.
Although ALL my brushes are from The Body Shop, this one is my least favourite. I tend to have to use more foundation when using this, and it always leaves streaks on my face, which i have to blend in with this brush for a while. Waste of my time, to be perfectly honest. It is somewhat annoying to use; not easier than a sponge, or even your own fingers. And worst part is, the bristles separate, which makes the process even more annoying. I do not recommend this brush; nothing beats the good old sponge;)
I bought this brush because I use liquid foundation. This is my first foray into brushes for the face and so I didn't want to shell out the $38 CDN for the MAC brush for something I wasn't sure if I would even use. This brush was $20 CDN, by the way. I like the size and the handle of this brush. I think that it works well about 90% of the time but sometimes it gets a little streaky, which is why I rate it 4 out of 5. If I could give it 4.5 on 5, I would because it is a good quality brush (for example, I've had mine for a month and a half and the hairs never fall out, plus it is quite silky). It is perfect for foundation newbies such as myself. If I ever did need another brush, I'd probably shell out for the MAC brush (ie. if I ever started wearing makeup everyday) but for right now (I use it maybe 2-4 times per week), this is great.
For the price, this is definitely the best foundation brush in the market. It's fantastic. I don't know what I'd do without it.
I get really shocked when I find out that other girls don't even know what a foundation brush is! Usually they use a sponge or their fingers. All I can say is that once you move to a brush you never ever go back! :)
Leaves a flawless finish!
Highly recommended...especially if you invest heavily in a quality foundation!
This is the first foundation brush I've used and while I love it (it definitely works so much better than my fingers or a sponge!) I don't think it's as good as MAC's one! Unfortch, MAC's brush is a bit on the exy side ($79 AUD) so I had to settle for this one instead ($23 AUD). It's not terrible, it just isn't as broad as MAC's one, and is slightly floppier (I could tell the difference when the SA at MAC used her brush on me and when the SA at The Body Shop used their brush on me). I'll probably save up to get a MAC brush the next time around!!!
