I had this brush for 6 years and it's still good as new. I wash it regularly, never loses hair. It's good for face powder and I use it with my NARS bronzer. For the price, I think it's the best brush out there.

This is an okay brush, which I find best used for applying powder, and a sheer coat of mineral foundation. That is about the best it can do, as it doesn't seem to be able to grab enough powder. However, it's handy because it's a large brush, so I can apply quickly, even if I have to pick up more powder rather frequently. The other thing that lost points on this brush, is that it sheds a little. Not a lot, but there are usually at least 2 to 4 fibers that I have to pulls off my face. Thus, I would not repurchase, because I've found other brushes that don't shed, and are capable of holding more product.

It is a nice size, inexpensive and quite soft on the skin. I prefer longer handles though; it's a tad short for my liking.
Although I have 'graduated' to Ecotools brushes due the great reviews, I would recommend this brush to others.

This is a pretty great brush, especially for the price. I got this brush on sale when it was buy one get one free so i picked up this brush and the retractable blush brush for the price of one. Although this not as soft as the MAC 150 brush, it's good enough to just put a light dust of powder all over your face. Honestly, dont spend 50 dollars on a powder brush where something 1/5 of the price does the same job.
This brush is also made out of natural bristles just like the MAC ones and it performs just as well. It might not be as smooth and soft but it's not really a big deal. Everyone needs a big powder brush to put finishing powder or even a light coat of foundation. You dont need some specially shaped brush for this purpose.
This does shed one or two hairs every wash but it has never actually shed on my face and after using it for a few months, mine is still in a pretty good shape. Overall pretty well made.
I condition my brushes after every wash so I actually got the bristles to be pretty soft. Overall this is a excellent brush and it gets the job done. I think everyone should own a powder brush whether it's from annabelle or not. There really is no point in spend 50 dollars on a powder brush, get the 182 duo fiber brush or something "special". Every brand makes powder brushes almost exactly the same. This Annabelle one works just as well as name brands and costs significantly less.
This brush does shed, however, every time I wash it but its really no big deal. It only sheds one or two hairs per wash. I dont think this is in danger of getting bald. The first time I washed this, it took me almost 6 washes to get the dye out of the bristles. It bleeds. After washing for the first few times however, it stopped and it has now became a very good brush.

I have been using this powder brush for almost two years (i think?) and i'm very comfortable with it. I use this almost everyday for applying loose powder, and i find that it works pretty nicely for this. Even though i have used it for a long time, it has remained in good shape overall. The bristles are still soft and full, and the handle of the brush still looks as it did when i first purchased it. Overall, i think that this is a nice basic brush to have around, and i think i would repurchase this one!

I've had this brush for about three months and until now I LOVED it. It's super soft, distributes and blends powder easily and until a few weeks ago, it didn't shed. Plus I love the control you get from the short handle. But now every time I use it the hairs break off and end up all over my face. Disappointing.

I like this brush, because unlike others of its kind I've tried (AHEM, Maybelline), it's not itchy. It's also large enough that it lets me blend powders more easily. It's easy to clean and is a good buy for the money. Recommended, although keep in mind the hairs do have a tendency of leaving themselves across your face.

I bought this one on a whim since I was desperately needing a new powder brush. I've had it for a few months already and its been a good brush for me. I use it everyday when I apply loose powder and it seems to do a fine job. No complaints. The hairs don't fall out at all and after washing it up its as good as new.

I'm a fan of Annabelle's (very inexpensive!) brush line, particularly the eye shadow brushes, but this was a disappointment. At about $10 CDN, it's a great starter brush for those who aren't too particular about their brushes - it does the job, after all. But to me, there are more cons than pros. First of all, it's too fluffy - the length of the hairs are a little long and quite soft, and it's not densely packed, so that it feels flimsy against the face. It picks up enough product, but because of how it's packed, it's a little on the floppy side, so it doesn't distribute the product well. Otherwise, the pros are that it's not too scratchy, and it is a very attainable price point.

I purchased one at regular cost approximately $10.00 cdn. For some reason they were incorrectly priced at my Zehrs (Loblaws chain) so I picked up a few for less than $2.00 each. It is a powder brush that is fluffly and washes easily. Does not shed much at all.
I do like my Quo powder brushes better if I had to choose between the two. The Quo powder brushes are a few dollars more.
I recommend this brush for loose finishing powders or pressed powders. I do use it for foundation pressed powder instead of a sponge. I do NOT recommend this brush for mineral makeup foundation.
Annabelle is only available in Canada. Overall pricing is reasonable. Walmart and Loblaw Superstore have better everyday pricing than SDM.

I decided to purchase this after the reviews and got it w/ the eyeshadow brush set. I hate to be the odd one, but this brush SUCKED. It felt scratchy against my face and it shed like crazy. Upon applying my mineral foundation, i had a lot of hairs stuck on my face and in my sink. I still use it though only because I havenh't had time to purchase a new one and i don't use face makeup often. The eyeshadow brush is good though, so it's a pity that this brush was so terrible for me.

I purchased this along with an eyeshadow brush in a kit, and I love it. It is the best powder brush i've ever used. My old mac brush cannot compare. Good price too.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
i looove this brush! its so soft and fluffy and big! it distributes my loose powder like no other! i have tried many higher end brushes and this is comparable, if not better! i definatly think its better just from a $$ stand-point. it has a nice short handle and it easy to hold and use. one drawback to the brush is after a few washings i did see a bit of black dye leaking onto my drying towel... and it does loose the odd hair here and there but nothing to be worried about! if you are looking for a GOOD brush to apply your powder i definatly suggest this as its the best i have found yet. its been through many many washings and still is in great shape! try it!

I got this brush on sale for around $5 several years ago. I needed a brush to replace the really, really cheap & crappy one I'd been using for loose powder. The natural hair bristles are very soft and it did the job just fine. I found over time & repeated washings, the black dye came out of the bristles. Just over a month ago the handle broke off, but I've still been using it because it's all I've got. I'm on the lookout for a synthetic powder brush next, since I don't want to use hair from real animals. But to give this brush some credit, overall it's a great for the price.

I was actually kind of skeptical about buying a drugstore makeup brand brush but I'm so glad I picked this up! The brush is super soft, and I love the shorter handle. For only $12.99 CDN you can't go wrong! I'm definitely going to look into some of Annabelle's other brushes because if their quality is on par with the A-13 then I think I've found a new brush line to consider.

All I can say is WOW! THIS BRUSH IS SO SOFT! Ok I agree with absolutely everyone here on this brush! It is indeed a hidden gem and a godsend! Why oh why do the high end brand makeup brushes have to be so expensive and not even as good quality. The day I purchased this DIVINE brush I was looking for a good powder brush. I went to the Bay hoping to find something good quality. I went to estee lauder; their powder brush = $45.00, rough bristles, hair falling out. I was like what the hell? Are you kidding me? I went to clinique, same price, same problem except rougher bristles than estee lauders. I went to Visage caryl baker, their powder brush $25.00 and STIFF lol, I almost laughed when she showed it to me and I put it against my hand. Lastly, I went to Pharma Plus and I found this. $12.99 CDN and oooh my goodness. This brush is SO SOFT, the perfect size, the small handle gives you great control, and it distributes the powder so evenly on my face. I honestly cannot believe that not many people know about this brush. I love MAC brushes BUT this one is indeed a challenge to MAC brushes! Annabelle Powder Brush A-13 - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

It's a Godsend!

I think that Annabelle is only available in Canada. (I am not too sure...)
Marcelle and Annabelle are the same company and I fee both products are pretty good. Less harsh ingredients and good quality for the price. I am not too sure about shades. (Armani has great shades, he is genius.) I don't use Annabelle products but I wanted to buy this brush.
This powder brush is a ,if you are in Canada, you should get this immediately.
Better than MAC brushes. And the price is so friendly.Just try and you'll know.

A great brush for the price. The handle is short, which means it's easy to fit in any makeup bag, and the bristles are nice and soft and thick. I have noticed that after repeated use, the occasional 'hair' falls out, but it's nothing compared to what happens with some other brushes I've used. Distributes powder evenly, neither caked on nor too light. A good purchase.

Fatastic brush! I have tried so many brushes: MAC, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Jane Iredale, etc.; and this is my favourite big fluffy powder brush. The bristles are so soft (MAC scratched my face, ouch!), and the handle is short so it doesn't take up much space. The whole brush is in black and it looks quite good. It deposites my loose powder evenly in seconds because of the big brush head, a huge time-saver!
