I bought this to use it as it was designed, as a travel/ portable foundation brush. As much as I love Ecotools brushes in general, I was a bit disappointed with this. Yes, it is good for travel/ in your bag, but It simply is not a great foundation brush. I find it less soft than my other Ecotools brushes (and I've got most of them), similar in feel to a regular flat foundation brush, rather than a bigger & rounder sort of buffing brush. The effect is that of a flat foundation brush as well, as I have found the application a bit streaky and less perfect than I would like. Lastly, it's an odd shape. The pointy tip is not small or tapered enough to get under your eyes or around your nostrils comfortably, rather I find the brush too big for that. At the same time because it has a point, it takes a lot longer to buff in foundation properly, as the surface of the brush is not big enough. In conclusion, it's fine/ ok-ish/ it'll-have-to-do, for on the go/ travel, but if I didn't own it already, I would not go out and buy it. Sorry Ecotools!
