this brush does shed a lot. i've been using it very regularly for a few months now and it still sheds a few hairs every time i use it. other than that it does a great job with my liquid foundation and is much better than the foundation brushes i've used, but i might go for a different brand next time just because of the shedding issues.

In terms of application, this brush definitely does its job - but it sheds every time I wash and use it especially when i apply my liquid foundation. I'm really half and half about this product and I'll probably won't repurchase this product again.

I LOVE this brush! it gives a really "airbrushed" type finish to the skin and makes blending a breeze!
The only thing is it was probably a little over-priced for the way it was packaged and the quality- but it definately does its job!
would definately re-purchase

I bought this to use for my more pigmented blushes. I chose it primarily because it was cheap but also because I have been pretty happy with the quality of this brand's eye brushes so I expected similar quality in this brush. It's alright but the quality is definitely less - it sheds all over the place, especially when it's washed. But I can deal with that for powder blush - it would probably be more annoying if I was using it to apply foundation.
I've been pretty happy with it but I don't use it very often - if I needed to I would probably upgrade. But for now, this does the job just fine.

- You get your moneys worth: this being under $20 is cheap for a stippling brush compared to other brands of higher quality so this is a good alternative if you have just started using makeup or just want to have a try of a duo-fibre brush.
- Reasonable quality: like I said, you get your moneys worth and I believe the brush really balances with the price. The handle is sturdy, I have had no problems with the funnel. Generally, if you look after your brushes, you can get long use out of this brush.
- Comfortable handle and easy to use: I like the length and width of the handle haha! Even though this is very important, it's still a pro in my books!
- Shedding: There is definitely not an overly amount of shedding but I have experienced light shedding every couple of uses and when I deep clean it with water.
- Can be tricky to spot clean because of the duo-fibres: I have difficulty cleaning the shorter bristles when spot cleaning. The white bristles on my brush have not stained at all and I have had this brush for over a year!//
With proper care, this brush will last the way if you don't mind occassional shedding and don't want to invest on a dearer brush. This one does it job.

I love this brush. It shed a few hairs on first use, but has not lost any since. I have not seen any black dye when the brush is washed. I will definately be buying a few more of this brush.

UGH. Horrible. Sheds like crazy!! Avoid this one. Seriously.

I generally dont like spending too much money on makeup tools, therefore I would not go out and waste my money on M.A.C brushes or so.
I have 2 brushes from the Artiste line by manicare, both face brushes, which is this one and a large powder brush. Now despite how much I look down on GLOSS (A cheap beauty store in Australia), I have to say they make some really good brushes(Actually I have no complaints about any of the brushes I got from GLOSS), at really affordable price (Not that Artiste was expensive to start with!).
Now I find with the Artiste stippling Brush, it is soo pricky it hurts my face, yes it does shed, but only to a certain point and then it stops (cause it has nothing left to shed!).
When I compare the Artiste line with the GLOSS line, GLOSS is much more better in terms of quality and also slightly cheaper.

This brush sheds like crazy and leaks dye when I wash it. Waste of money. The brushes arnt kept in packaging, they just all sit out on the display for anyone to touch. I have noticed that there are two slightly different versions of this brush (possibly a difference in manufacturing?) which might explain why some people love it and some hate it: some brushes have pure white long bristles and some have slightly off white bristles. Mine is one of the off white ones. Has anyone else noticed this?

i loved the idea of getting a stippling brush for a cheapie price.....but omg.... it bleeds black ink !!!!! and it sheds like crazy too !!!! definately not going to buy it again nor would i recommend it to anyone :(

I honestly don't know what you guys are taking about? My brush never EVER bled black dye, albeit it did shed a fair amount during the first week of use, but you just wipe away the hair and buff away any smudges from your face. It's actually an excellent stippling brush.
You get a beautiful natural finish. 10 x better than using a sponge or regular foundation brush!

Lets start off with how the brand of this stippling brush is. The manicare line, is just a normal line of beauty tools, and their artiste line is for brushes, with most brushes being quite soft, and usable, without scratching your face or anything like that. The prices are reasonable, generally thought to be quite inexpensive, but still be good quality. This stippling brush would have cost in AUD, 17.95. Looking at the brush itself, it looks just like an ordinary stippling brush.
I was so excited to use this brush, I just couldn't wait to clean it, as it was not in a package but was just in a Priceline bag, and for hygiene reasons, I deep cleansed it with antibacterial soap and some olive oil mixed together (actually used by makeup artists). Letting it dry in a Brush Guard, I left for school, and couldn't wait to come back home, to use my brush, and start applying on foundation. Yet, when I came home, I found my brush, with stained black ink on the white bristles. BLACK INK? So, instead of trying to figure out what was wrong, I decided to just clean off the black ink with a MAC brush cleaner, and just start using it. After two days of using the brush, I deep cleansed it again, as that was my routine for face brushes that I use everyday. Waiting for it to dry, I went to school, hoping that the black bristles wouldn't come back again. Coming back home, I also found the white bristles dyed in black ink again. This time, I rubbed and stroked the qhite bristles across my arm, find that the black ink would just paint onto my arm and hand. I re-deep cleansed it, using what I use for everyother brush I used. This time, about 50 bristles came out of the brush, and into the sink. Once dried, same with the black ink. This happened over 7 times, and I nearly gave up. So I went back to the Priceline counter, and said what my problem was. They said that I wasn't doing right, and deep cleaning them were bad? And I had to buy the spraying brush cleaner, and after a week of using the brush cleaner, same results. I just could be f'ed to continue the hassle of doing all this, and ended up just going to MAC and getting their stippling brush.
-Price is cheap
-Absorbs smells --I use relvon colorstay, and it just absorbed the smell. :(
-Bristles flare out of brush if you use no brush guard.
To conclude, I absolutely HATE it. I don't know why it is sold, if BLACK INK. INK!!! is just going to dribble out of the brush. If you are searching for a good stippling brush, you can't go past a MAC, but, if you are on budget, I recommend going to Makeupgeek.com and on the online store, they sell a stippling brush for about 15 dollars, not really sure, but I know the quality is great, and I would totally recommend it. I just found this brush was TERRIBLE, and wit chances of balck ink being left on your face, I would just go and save up for a brush which would last you your life.

This was an okay brush while it lasted. When I was washing it ALL the bristle hairs came out in one massive clump! So I had to toss it. :(

This brush is okay and does the job quite well. It shed like crazy the first few times and the first few washes, which really put me off. It isn't shedding AS much anymore but a few stray hairs still annoy me. I wouldn't buy it again because now that I am a stippling convert, I'd rather shell out on a mac brush. Still, it was good to buy as a cheap alternative to find out if I like the application technique of stippling, and it does it's job fairly well from what I can tell as it does make my makeup look a lot more even and photoshopped.

I own this brush and I really like it! It is so soft and stipples on my foundation nicely! The brush does shed a bit, but for $17.95 it is totally worth it :)

I bought this cause I'm quite young and can't shell out at the mac brush, which is like 5 times the price. I have never used one before but to be honest, I was kinda disappointed with this. Maybe I had to high expectations but I believed that it would be a lot denser and just work better, no matter how hard I try, it seems impossible to blend, thought that could also be my foundations fault. I also hate how much work it is - I find that I have to clean it after EVERY time I use it because otherwise all the longer bristles stick together and its virtually impossible, and It has never been as good since I first bought it -- regardless of what I use to clean it or how often and deeply I clean it, It still is never as fluffy and full as it was before and all the longer bristles stick together. I seem to be one of the lucky people who got a good brush as it rarely sheds and only bled a little when I first got it. All in all, This was an average brush and although I thought it would be better, thats what you get for a cheap price and it still pretty much does its job.

Unfortunately I can't make any direct comparisons with other stippling brushes. But for this "cheap" artiste brush, I was quite impressed. The colour of the brush bleeds out in the first wash and some hairs will fall out. I've washed it dozens of times now, it's not so bad. I love how versatile this brush is, I've used it for foundation (both powder and liquid), blush and bronzer. The thing with this brush is that it doesn't pick up so much product, at the same time it coats your face evenly. The only down side is in terms for packaging, oh why why why doesn't it come with some sort of packaging or casing. It's just presented in a beaded box where ladies like look and touch, to the extent where some new brushes are coated with makeup. You'd know what I mean if you you've seen it. I need a few more of these brushes, so I would definitely repurchase.

This is my first Stippling Brush and I have to say I am very impressed. I decided to try the artiste brand first rather than diving straight in and splurging on the MAC 187. After reading reviews on MUA I made sure that I picked out the “best brush of the bunch” which seems to have worked well for me as I have not experienced any shedding and my make up looks FLAWLESS! I will never apply foundation any other way!
I cannot recommend this brush and technique enough – no streaking, no messy fingers just a perfect “airbrushed” face!

I love this brush! It is an affordable alternative to MAC 187, about a quarter of the price. I find it can shed, which is annoying, but overall it does a great job with applying liquid foundation. I always thought that skunk brushes were just for powder, boy was I wrong. I will NEVER apply liquid foundation with ANYTHING else, these kind of brushes provide airbrush coverage, they are great. If you can't afford MAC, and can put up with minor shedding, this is a fantastic brush. Highly recommended
