I purchased this foundation brush in about 6-7 months ago. About two months ago I purchased a Beauty Blender. I really wish I hadn't bought the two items so close together, because I absolutely love the Beauty Blender and this brush! (I read a suggestion recently to use traditional makeup brushes and finish the look with the Beauty Blender, which is exactly what I have been doing as of late.)
Anyway, I absolutely love this foundation brush. The finish is very polished and blends out product very well. I love the packaging it comes in (a box and a little velvet sleeve to store the brush in) and the wooden handle. The brush is made of synthetic fibers, which is highly recommended for blending out liquid makeup. (I use a goat hair MAC kabuki.) The brush itself if clearly high quality in both performance and appearance. My makeup collection is quite versatile. I believe there are some things that are not necessary to spend department store price, such as eyeshadow or lipstick. But quality brushes, mascara, and concealer are three things I believe are difficult to find in a drug store. The price is a bit steep ($45), but I really wanted a high quality & luxurious brush at the time. I've heard this brush often compared to Shiseido's Perfect Foundation Brush, which is $30. Had I known that prior to purchasing this brush, I probably would have gone with the less expensive one. I haven't tried using this with BB creams, I usually just use the Beauty Blender for those. As of late, I've been using CK One 3 in 1 Face Makeup with this brush. I really like the finish and the way it blends. I've tried quite a few foundations with this brush and most of them work great. As far as the comments that say it is difficult to clean, yes it is a little challenging to clean it well because the bristles are so dense and really scrubbing it would damage the brush I think. I haven't tried many other foundation brushes, but that wouldn't be a deciding factor in purchasing a brush either.
This is definitely a must have if you're on the market for a high quality foundation brush!

I do really likely his foundation brush is gives you a pretty finish you can really build on the coverage and the overall quality of the brush is awesome! There's just one bad thing about this brush , when the brush is dirty( been used a couple times ) when you go to apply the foundation it's gonna leave you with streaks which obviously sucks. But if the brush is fresh and clean your guaranteed a beautiful finish :)

I bought this brush after reading many good reviews, it is the most expensive makeup item I've purchased aside fr the bobbi brown foundation I have! I use it with my mac studio sculpt foundation and it goes on beautifully. A bit expensive for a brush but I assume it will last forever so very happy I purchased! :) you won't be disappointed

This brush is really soft and applying liquid foundation with it has been effortless - great blending results, no streaks. I sort of prefer the pointed liquid foundation brushes more because I can apply foundation around my nose easier. But nonetheless, it is still a great brush and I am very happy it is part of my brush collection.

This is the best FDTN brush I've ever used. HTH

Chanel's No.6 Pinceau Fond de Teint brush is a great foundation brush. Before I was using either a beauty blender or my fingers and buffing with a 187, and this brush has made a HUGE difference. I get an airbrushed look in one application, and can easily build up in areas where I want more coverage without my foundation looking spackled on. I don't even use concealer anymore. The bristles are thick and wide (I've heard it called a tri-skunk), with enough give to apply your foundation completely but not so flimsy as to leave streaks. It's $45, but a decent face brush (especially a workhorse foundation brush) is never going to be cheap.
I only have two annoyances, but they're enough to keep this brush from being a HG/5 stars. One, because the bristles are so thick the brush is difficult to thoroughly clean, and takes quite a while to dry. My other annoyance is that since the handle is so short and I have long fingers, it can be difficult to find a good grip on it and my hand will cramp if I don't apply quickly. This shouldn't be a problem if you have smaller hands/fingers, but I may not repurchase unless the next iteration has a longer handle.

I bought this after attending a Chanel event where the makeup artist used this brush to apply foundation and makeup. I find it very difficult to apply foundation with this brush and continue to use my fingers. However, I use this to apply a layer of foundation over my eyes below the eye shadow - that is all. The brush is very difficult to clean - I have to scrub it several times to get all the foundation off, and there is always some residue. Disappointing product.

Absolutely amazing brush. When I first got it, the brush literally felt like velvet against my skin and was so beautiful I didn't want to use it. I used it the next morning and was surprised at how I hardly needed to blend the foundation because it was streak-free.
Before purchasing the Chanel Foundation brush, I had been using a cheaper Avon foundation brush which always streaked and would require a lot of blending, sometimes even resulting in using my fingers. So using the Chanel brush was a huge surprise and one I am ever so pleased with. It requires a regular clean to maintain the softness and hygiene of the brush but apart from that minor thing, I love it so much. Would definitely buy it again!

After years of applying my foundation with fingers i frequently toyed with the idea of trying a brush. I perchased the chanel one two days ago and im glad i did! Its not overly expensive, but for a brush i thought it was a little overpriced. However im told they last forever, so if this is true i am more than willing to pay over the odds.
I like the finish this seems to give, my foundation seems to look somehow softer. Also i feel i use less foundation,which is good as every now and then you end up adding more product to your face and dont notice how thick it looks till your outside!
The brush was easier to use than i thought it would be, which was a pleasent surprise. I thought it may take some getting used to!
The things im not so keen on about this brush are.....why does it have to be synthetic? For the price and it being chanel i would have expected a genuine hair one. The other thing is i dont like the silver part of the handle,where the brush begins. Only a little thing i know, but i would have thought a complete black handle would have looked classier. Also it states on the care card not to get this part wet when cleaning the brush. Easier said than done! I think they`ve said this because the silver coloured bit will then tarnish! Not good!
If anything happened to my brush,yes i would buy again.....it feels better than fingers and why use a cheap highstreet brush to apply expensive chanel products!!!!
