Got this more than a year ago and still going strong. My first foundation brush and didn't look back after that. I love the way it feels on my face and the perfect finish it gives. Using a sponge may be faster but it also soaks up a lot of product. I use this with Unmakeup and Traceless and they are a perfect match.
This brush is horribly expensive but does the job perfectly. It feels oh so smooth on your skin and the look is sleek and sophisticated. However, the brush seems to absorb a lot of foundation real quick.
I love it. It's great: gets the job done and is very sturdy. It was obscenely expensive, but has proven to be a good investment. I also use it for concealer application.
This brush seemed promising, especially after the demo by the product rep., however, when I used it, I wasn't impressed. The foundation streaked and the bristles clump together. The brush has to be cleaned each time and I felt I was wasting foundation.
Creating a need! The SA didn't even teach us how to use it! Ended up in streaks. Too Tricky to use. I prefer fingers and latex sponges.
I actually think this is a great brush to use for applying liquid foundation. The bristles are soft and I found foundation goes on much better with this brush as opposed to using your fingers or a sponge. Sponges are loaded with bacteria everyone. The brush is easy to just wash with a little liquid soap and less prone to microbes growing in it like a sponge. If you have a quick drying foundation, just put on one dot on at a time and you shouldn't have a problem. Or, put your foundation directly on the brush to apply. I've had mine for at least three years and it looks brand new after washing at least once a week. I highly recommend it for anyone considering buying a foundation brush.
I really loved this brush when I first got it, and have used it pretty regularly. I've washed it and reused it and it holds up just fine. However, I feel that the bristles at the tip are a little too few, and for some reason the bristles in general tend to gather together and cause the foundation to apply in streaks after awhile. I much prefer the density of the Paula Dorf foundation brush. I own her Cheek cream brush and it's fantastic- perfect, and lets me apply the product evenly.
Believe the hype! This foundation brush is truly amazing!! My foundation goes on so much smoother now because of this brush. I should've bought this a long time ago! Give this one a try whenever you're at a Px counter.
I've been using my foundation brush for 3 years now. It is definately worth the initial outlay of money. The brush provides a flawless finish and doesn't waste your make-up like sponges do. It took a little while to get used to, but I will never go without one again.
My first ever foundation brush and i never want to use my fingers again!
