I really enjoyed this brush but I didn't use it as a blush brush. I used it to buff my face powder as a finish touch and it gave my complexion a blur like finish as the brush was dense enough. I had this for over a year and washed it once every 2-3 weeks as I only used it for powder. However, the bristle shed a couple of weeks ago and the whole bristles came off the brush handle! I was so sad!!! I was so careful with washing it so that the water wouldn't run down the handle and get to the glue and I dried it with the bristles pointing down.

I've had this brush for 3 years, and it goes through regular washes (that is... whenever i remember and have some time on my hands) and no shedding has happened. It's still soft and i use it everyday to apply my Nars Orgasm/Deep Throat.

Perfect, it picks up the perfect amount of blush and you can really work it in to blend it. If going out at night, you can build it up.

I would repurchase this in a few years time or whenever it needs replacing, as I don't need to at the moment.

I like this brush and keep coming back to it. It has lost some of its shape due to washing but still performs well. Worth the money.

A great brush. Been through washes, no shedding or loss of quality. Soft, easy to clean. I currently use it for applying my MAC Lighscapade all over my face. Also use it to apply Mary Lou Mainizer. Before I had used it with powder blush and was happy then too. Very pleased.

DISCLAIMER: This review is for the original brush design: the one with the thicker handle and silver aluminum ferrule. I don't have any experience with the updated design (thinner handle, bronze ferrule) and am not sure how it compares.

After a lot of research on the perfect blush brush, I am glad I ultimately went with EcoTools. I've used this brush with very pigmented and very sheer blushes with equal success. The taper allows you to pick up a variable amount of product depending on how much you want to apply; it also helps to sweep and blend color very evenly across the cheek to exactly where I want it.

* perfect size for my cheeks
* easy to use (apply and blend)
* good feel in the hand
* works well with all kinds of blushes
* long-lasting (through many washes and daily spot cleaning)
* price is great!

* original design might not be available anymore
* if you seriously over-do your blush, you'll need a stiffer/denser brush to buff out the excess color

If purchased probably over ten of this. They are great quality I just use and abuse them. So soft and luxurious against my skin. Plus I love that when I need one I can just stop by the drugstore.

I have backups of backups of this brush. I use them for blush, powder, and bronzer (in conjunction with a Real Techniques contour brush or a Hakuhodo medium yachiyo if I'm contouring or want a more concentrated color -- I apply with the smaller brush and then blend out with this one). They never, ever shed or bleed color and they're all synthetic, which I love.

It's super-soft and gives the perfect, thin wash of color. It keeps powder blush sheer and even, as long as I tap off most of the product on my hand before I apply. I have dry, fair skin and powder blush can look too heavy so with more concentrated colors or bronzer I grab two of these brushes and apply thin layers with one while blending with the other (clean) brush.

I mostly use cream blushes so I find that where this brush really shines is as a powder applicator - it's dense enough to apply loose powder evenly but still soft and fluffy enough to keep it diffuse.

This brush is certainly "too" soft ..That's why I took one lippy . It's the softest in my collection and has a great shape and quality but It picks up too much product which may be a plus for some people but not for me .. Also it fails badly at blending it or sheering it , so I have to blend with another brush ...I may repurchase again , not sure .
Edit : I gave it to my niece to use as a powder blush , as it's so big for my face and doesn't blend well , I bought more brushes and it seems only natural hair brushes - even generic ones blend MUCH better than this I also have taken one more lippy for that ..

Love, love, love this brush! It applies my blush on like a dream! It picks up enough product and makes my blush look flawless. The brush is super soft and is super sturdy even after washing it. It's even better than my Sigma brushes which comes to me as a surprise. You really can't go wrong since it only costs $6!

I love, love, love the Ecotool brushes, but especially this one. It picks up the blush so well and is great for any amount of blush that you want (a lot or a little color). It's also great for contouring and the bristles are so soft that I just can't get enough. I have had this brush for forever and its holding up great. I would definitely buy this product again.
