This brush works great for blending in color. I also use it as a bronzer brush and to lightly highlight along the outlines of my forehead and chawbones. I don't like that this brush sheds. Every time I use it and wash it, it sheds.

I have been using this blush brush for a very long time. It has very good coverage and distributes product very well. I bought this when i use to work at a Shoppers over TEN YEARS AGO!! If you take care and store properly, these last a very long time!!

I had been wanting to try these for a while & purchased this one on special. Thankfully so. Not impressed. The hair is soft but it sheds easily & every time I use it, I end up having at least one broken hair on my face. Since I use it only for blush, this means it will not last long. I haven't had to clean it yet since I don't wear blush every day. I doubt it'll still be usable after that. Even at 40% off, these are still overpriced. Imo these belong at the dollar store.

I have two of there brushes, and one is the standard silver handled brush with black bristles, while the other is brown with brown bristles and is more travel sized. The brown one is pretty great - I don't have any complaints. It's soft and sturdy, though admittedly I don't use it as often. The other one, however, has been shedding since I first got it. I can deal with it, but it leaves little black hairs all over my face and it's annoying. Also, the handle and ferrule are pretty wobbly. I'd buy again because one of them is fine, but it seems to be hit or miss.

I have not use it a long time because it started to shed after two washing. Note that I always dry my brushes upside down, so I do not think it is my fault. I tried to use it even after, but it lost so much hair that it was painful to apply the powder.

It works well, is soft, the only con is that it does shed a little. I always have about 4 or 5 little black hairs on my face after using. No biggy tho, still a nice brush.

-I washed it...and...it smelled of dead roadkill...
-It started shedding after that and at school I'd have embarrassing little black hairs on my face...awkward...
-when it is washed it's not the same and all the weird smelling oils are washed off so it's not as soft and doesn't pick up makeup that great.
UPDATE: I cut the top off to make it a flat-top...when I washed it the white towel had a blue dye stain in it!!!

Quo is a very dependable brand, but when it comes to big face brushes like powder brushes, blush brushes, etc, I find that there is a bit of problem with shedding. No funky smell from the brushes and it feels soft and heavenly, but I bought their blush brush twice to find that they both shed terribly. Will not repurchase.

With the fact there is no need for me to buy this product again, I'm just going to say Yes because saying No would make it seem like its unworthy.
This brush is fantastic, I couldnt ask for anything better to apply my powder foundation with. I love Quo's brushes and this blush brush never displeases me. I use it for my blush too, both ways it works fantastically. I've had it for a while now and its still my Number 1. Packaging is good, no complaints. And the price is pretty good for makeup brushes. It goes on sale often, too. This brush is really soft but at the same time is strong enough that its not flimsy during application of makeup. The shape is awesome too, perfect for applying blush.
I recommend you buy it, you will not be dissapointed. :)

I have really grown to adore this Blush Brush. At first, it wasn't really a favorite of mine, and I opted for the Ecotools Blush Brush instead. Since venturing into makeup, applying blush has always been something I have struggled with. Everytime, I was told to apply blush to the apple of the cheeks, and I was always left with a wierd looking finish. Finally, I figured that for myself, I love applying blush starting at the top of my face as opposed the the 'apple' :) It always leaves me glowing, not looking like a clown. I feel that this blush is perfect for this type of application. I found the Ecotools brush to soft and big, and the MAC 116 to tapered- leaving me with 80's stripes. This blush beat them all out, and I just love it. I have a few QUO brushes, and while some of them I haven't used in awhile (just the eye brushes, and the Angled face brush)- I always reach for this one. I think they are great brushes to start out with, or to hold onto and use permanentely. These are usually 40% off every week at Shoppers, and I believe I paid around $11 for mine.

Pros: Very soft on the face. Full but not dense. Handle is just right size. Applies blush beautifully. Sleek black handle -- attractive if displayed.
Cons: Only available in Canada. Prefer fluffier, flat-top applicators like skunk brush.
Get it when on 40% sale at Shoppers. Recommendable but I may be in the minority as to applicator preference. This one will last me a while so I won't be repurchasing. This may be the same one that juicytuesday mentioned in her recent YT.

Unfortunately, I do not like this brush. It is soft when I touch it with my hands but on my cheeks, it's a different story. I find it to be very scratchy on my sensitive skin and I have to work hard to blend in my blush. It seems to pick up colour unevenly, so that doesn't help either. I much prefer the $4 fan brush I bought from the craft store - it is both softer and picks up the perfect amount of product.
The ferrule is loose on this blush brush as well.

For a drug-store brand, I actually really enjoy this brush! I've been using it forever and has yet to let me down. It applies my blush quite nicely, rarely sheds, and is kind of soft. Would I repurchase? Probably not, I would like to try different ones first.

This is probably the worst brush I own, and am so happy I have finally found something to replace this with. It sheds sooooo much, it's disgusting. After I finish my makeup there is bristles all over my face and neck, and all over my sink and counter. I would feel bad giving this junk to somebody, I'm pretty sure it's just going to meet my garbage can...if it's really lucky it'll get stuffed in the bottom of a junk drawer somewhere. Blech!

I hate this brush! Normally I try to find at least one good thing about a brush. There is nothing to find here.
It picks up way too much product and then doesn't hold it at all. It all falls out if you tap it off or goes on you face in a big clump. I even tried buffing the brush first in the lid of the product to see if I could work it in to the brush to make the colour apply more evenly. Did not work the colour stayed in the lid and it started sheading like crazy. Which was also what happened when I tried buffing powder out on my face. I like to have a clean brush near by to use if I put on too much colour or I need to deal with fallout. This brush sheds way too much to be good for that either. It is not losing full hair either which might suggest I screwed up in washing it. Instead it is losing pieces of hairs. They are breaking off.
The last attempt i was going to make for this brush was to use it for cream brushes but it sheds too much I really don't even want to try.
Giant waste of time and money. I don't even want to put it up for swap because I feel bad giving it to some one else.

I actually really liked this brush. I would probably recommend this moreover bronzer than blush because of the fact that this is a very large brush, it's excellent for the "3" technique. Very nice for a summer look. I love contouring with my blush and I find that this brush is very versatile. When you first buy this, and wash it, the hair will fan out a bit but it will only increase in size so I wouldn't worry about it looking messy.

I bought this when it was 20x the points and 40% off so it was a pretty good deal.
I use this brush for bronzer and blush. It does tend to pick up a bit too much for my liking.
I've had this brush for 6 months and after a couple dozen washings, it is still bleeding colour everytime I wash it. I don't notice it affecting my makeup but it's definitely not very appealing.

I overall like this brush, it's very soft and it picks up a good amount of blush.
What I don't like is that it's weirdly shaped (not JUST this Quo brush either...) the center is too long compared to the rest of it, giving it that pointy shape that makes application uneven.

This is my favorite blush brush! It's surprising to see all the comments on how badly this brush sheds, because I've experienced virtually none of that. I do remember the brush smelled awful the first time I washed it, but it has since gone away. The hairs are soft and pick up just the right amount of blush/bronzer (I've used it for both products). I've had good luck in general with Quo brushes but that may be due to the batch you get in stores. I love when Quo has their 20% or 40% off sales because they do happen regularly and that's when I buy.

I feel like the Quo brushes are a hit or miss. Some of them are wonderful for the price and deliver very well and some just start becoming loose after a couple of uses and shed like crazy.
The blush brush falls in the second category. I only washed it two times (very carefully) and it has always shed. It's not the actual bristles that shed, but just the end of them so I end up with little bits of black hair on my cheeks and have to take them off one by one with tweezers. The ferrule became loose all of a sudden, one day it was ok and the next day it was completely loose and it's almost going to fall off.
-sheds like a mofo
-ferrule became loose after two weeks
-weird shape, doesn't pick up product nicely and makes it hard to apply correctly
The cons definetely outweight the only pro!
I got it at 40% off (I always wait for the sales at SDM, I never buy the Quo brushes full price) and I don't even think it's worth that low price because it became unusable after only 2 weeks.
I recommend Quo for their eye brushes, but the face brushes in general completely suck (except for the flat foundation brush which I love, that's the only exception).
