I use this to apply 2-way cake foundation to my face
Relatively cheap for type of brush
Given the price, fairly soft bristles
Doesn't pick up too much product (although this might be a con for others out there), gives buildable coverage
Good for buffing and blending product
Minimal shedding- I've washed it 4 times so far and only lost 2 -3 hairs
LOST ITS SHAPE AFTER JUST 4 WASHINGS! - not really happy about this....now it looks more like a fluffy powder brush

This is perfect for the amount of makeup I use. I don't like using too much makeup because I don't need it. This gives me just what I need. And it feels so soooft

I think this is the perfect brush to apply Mineral Veil. I think it sucks if used to apply foundation tho! It's a nice soft brush and works really well to buff on MV.

The brush is not that good. My main complaints are that the bristles are rough and I am not very impressed with the application of my makeup.

Got this free in a kit. If this were not free, i would definitely buy this. Its scratchy, shed every time I used it. Even with multiple washings it did not soften and bristles started to bow out. This brush also left bristles all over my face when applying foundation. I have 4 other BE brushes and this was the worst. There are so many other cheaper, better quality brushes out there! Mine went into the trash.

I wish I didn't purchased this brush. It's rough and sheds every time I use it. It feels painful on my face. I usually go over my face with a sponge to remove the bristles and smooth out the powder after I use this brush. I wouldn't even give this brush away.

this brush isn't as bad as most of the reviewers have commented. i think the bristles are soft and comfortable to apply makeup on my face. the only down side is that it shreds, but not too bad. If you got it as part of the starter kit (like how I did), don't throw it away, use it for applying blushes. but if you are consider buying this brush, i suggest getting a bobbi brown one, the quality is 10X better and the price is only double of BE.

I basically want to say "ditto" to EVERYTHING evangelines said right below me. I too use it for the Warmth and Mineral Veil for the same reasons. The only thing I don't like about this brush is that it sheds more than my other BE brushes. Oh well. I still love it.

I am suprised at how many negative reviews this brush has received!!!
Personally, I dont use this brush for the application of my foundation as I find it's coverage is much too light. Instead i use it for my Warmth All-Over Face Color / bronzer.
I find that it applies just the right amount of bronzer to make me look naturally sun kissed as opposed to overly faux tanned. This brush acts as a fantastic secondary buffer rather than a primary applicator of full coverage make up.
If like me, you do not like the kabuki brush due to its prickly nature, simply use a smaller, tappered foundation brush to lightly stroke / buff on your mineral foundation, then use your Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush to softly pat / cover trouble spots away. Once you have your base, simply tap and swirl (so cliche but oh so true) your bronzer onto the Flawless Application brush and viola! Instant, NATURAL colour.
This is a great brush IF used correctly with the right product. Applying your foundation with this brush IS a waste of time. Applying your bronzer with it on the other hand is not.
If after all this you are still not convinced, by all means do not throw it away. Keep it for applying your Mineral Veil. You'll find it does wonders in that department too!
I hope this has somewhat helped!
