I think they shouldn't have called it a foundation brush. It's just not good for that purpose, IMO. BUT! it's so great for contouring the areas on your face (except the nose). I apply a line of powder contouring and blend it with RT contour brush. My contour lines look not muddy. They look natural as possible and well blended. If you want to contour your jaw line with this, I would say go for it! I tried to contour my jaw line with many other brushes but it never looked right. If you use this foundation brush and a brush for blending you will see a satisfying result! My search is over for my whole lifetime.

This brush was good to start with, it was soft and easily spread my foundation. When I washed it, however, it completely changed! After one wash the bristles were not soft anymore, and they left streaks on my face. Very disapointed for the £12 price! My superdug own brand brush is better than this.

I wouldn't have marketed this as a foundation brush - I'd say it's better for tinted moisturisers or BB/CC creams. Initial application is very streaky, but with a little TLC, you can easily work the product in better. If you're someone who is always in a hurry, this brush is not for you. I find this brush gives very good coverage, but would likely cause thicker/long-wear foundations to cake on your skin.

While I wouldn't repurchase, I do reach for this to apply my moisturizer, or tinted moisturizer. Also doubles up great for applying face masques. The one time I did try it with foundation (Revlon Photo Ready), it caked up like you won't believe.

Really not a bad brush, but don't buy this if you're fast on the go, or if you're one for heavier foundations.

The plus side of this is that it's held up beautifully in the 1.5 years that I've had mine - hasn't shed a single hair, super easy to wash, and maintains its form wonderfully. Doesn't soak up product at all. Especially good at reaching the crevices of the nose, and under the eyes - much better than any other brush I own.

Definitely a fun brush to have in your collection, but not something you'll likely reach for every day - and definitely not a make up brush staple.

This was my first real techniques brush, and I was really disappointed. The bristles aren't soft and they feel really synthetic. I would rather use a stipple brush or a sponge.

I was very disappointed with this brush, to say it's meant to be a foundation brush, I think it's rubbish for applying foundation. It just made the foundation look very patchy and left lines and basically just smeared the foundation on my face, not blending it at all. I do occasionally use it to dab a small amount of concealer and it isn't too bad for that job but for applying concealer I think it doesn't do a good job at all and is definitely not a flattering look at all:)

Really liked this foundation brush, great price too. Made my face look flawless and distributes product evenly. HG.

I use this brush every day for my foundation. For the price, it has done a good job. It is soft and dense, and does not leave too many streaks when I apply my foundation.

I spray it every day with an alcohol/water solution, and shampoo it regularly with hand soap. I am quite rough with it during cleaning, but it has held up very nicely. Even though I am not careful to keep the water from soaking the adhesive at the base of the bristles, it has not lost any volume.

I love this brush, I find the shapes helps the glide over the contours of my face, I alternate between this and the BBlender.

You can find it at Harmon Discount, and use your BBBeyond coupon and save some money

I'm so disappointed with this brush. I know it's meant to be used as a foundation brush, but after reading the reviews here, I bought it for contouring. It's so dense that it picks up waaaay too much product, even when you try to be really careful. I look like I have rubbed dirt on my face where I tried to apply my contour powder this morning. I've buffed and buffed and I can't seem to get rid of it. I'll try it again tomorrow, but if I can't make it work I might just give it away.

EDIT: I've since used it for liquid foundation/tinted moisturiser. Meh, nothing special. I pack it in my bag for when I am getting ready after the gym, because I don't want to lose/damage my stippling brush.

As a foundation brush it was a major disappointment. I tried a few times with different products and it was just not worth the hassle. I can achieve better effects just by using my fingers. It was just spreading foundation on my face, it did not blend it, it did not look flawless - it was just meh.
For a while it was just left unused until I decided to use it for something else. It is actualy a decent contouring brush!
I have been using it as such for a while abd I am pleased. I use it with powder products.

A little disclaimer - my favourite products to apply liquid foubdation are miracle complexion sponge, stippling brush or flat top brush. I recently ditched all liquid foundation and switched to BB creams and I find applying these with my fingers works best.
