Had this for probably 2 years now, and it's decent not fabulous. Leaves a streaky finish if you don't really stipple out streaks after applying. You have to practice and get used to it. I am replacing it with the Dior no.12 foundation brush which looks more like a slanted kabuki and I am already much happier on only one day of the dior brush instead

A nice brush, attractive, easy to hold, nice soft bristles however I found it left streaks which meant I then needed to pat some areas of my face with my fingers.

Cute packaging though and not bad as a freebie to the foundation I was buying at the time!

As far as foundation brushes go, this is a very good one. The bristles don't shed, and it's easy to use. Brushes don't absorb foundation the way sponges do. So, you're not wasting product. This is expensive at over $30 dollars for one brush, but it's high quality and will last for years. The reason I didn't give it a perfect score is that I'm simply not a foundation brush person. I feel like all of them give too heavy a finish. I find sponges easier and faster to use. I think the finish a sponge gives is softer and more natural. I so seldom use this, I doubt I'll ever have to buy another one.

This is the best foundation brush I've found.

Like others have noted, it's extremely high quality. I've had mine for years without the ferrule coming loose or it shedding. The bristles are very soft and dense.

This helps me smooth on my liquid foundation quickly and efficiently. I only have problems with streakiness if I haven't cleaned it in a while, although I always do some blending with my fingers, especially around my nose and eyebrows. Someone below asked what the point of using a foundation brush was if you had to use your fingers. Well, imagine trying to cover an entire canvas with paint using your fingers instead of a brush. Of course, your face is 3D and a canvas isn't. I think this brush does a good job with small and hard to reach spots and could really only do better if you sacrificed the ability to cover larger areas quickly and evenly. You can always use this and a smaller brush like ELF Professional Stipple, but it's easier for me to just use my fingers to perfect those difficult areas. I want a "touchable" finish anyway.

My only complaint is that I do find this brush REALLY annoying to clean (probably because of how dense the bristles are). I'll swish this around in the palm of my hand with water and baby shampoo for what feels like forever without getting all the product out; eventually I just have to call it quits. Although it's frustrating and makes me feel OCD, it hasn't seemed to cause any problems long-term, hygienic or otherwise. Like I said before, it has held up super super well.

This has been my fav fdtn brush for years. Bristles are soft and doesn't shed. I can't tell you how many times I have washed this brush, and no shedding….ever.

Fdtn applies well with this brush. No streaking. If I need a little touch up on an area after application, this pats well, too.

Fdtn brush has a clear acrylic handle, which adds a touch of glamour and makes it easy to maneuver. For storing, this brush comes with a plastic cover. An extra bonus, imo.

Do wish Clinique would offer their makeup brush set again. When I purchased their brush set years ago, all brushes performed well, and brushes were incased in a lovely gold clutch.

Love the foundation brush. Does the job really well. Not sure if I'm getting it as clean as possible with the Clinique cleanser. But the brush itself is wonderful and wonderfully designed. It's the right weight. Feels good in your hand and the handle conveys "Old time Hollywood glamour". The bristles feel good on your face. My kudos to the product designer.
