What?! Such a low rating for this magic brush? Because the handle snapped? Well, mine is still intact as well as the brush itself. I always don't grab the brush handle only but also the head of the handle with one of my fingers to avoid bending it too much. This gives me more control with the application. Someone mentioned it sheers out the product you're using. I can not confirm that. All that Artis brushes give me are flawless, airbrushed results: nicely and smooth blended. Maybe that's because I dot the product on my face and not on the brush itself. Who knows? I always use Revlon Colorstay (Combo/Oily Skin) foundation and with Artis Oval 8, I never had such a flawless, natural, non-cakey result. I use a close-up mirror (10x) and all I see is a smooth canvas, as if I see a better skin. Be careful though: If you're face is not smooth and moisturized, even this brush can't do wonders. The result can end up cakey and dry patches. But it is well known that no matter if you use your fingers, beauty blender, sponges, brushes or oval brushes, none of these tools can save your result if your skin is not well prepared. -> If you exfoliate and moisturize your skin well, you will truly see what I'm talking about when I say, Artis brushes are my new Holy Grail brushes. When I clean the brush (microfiber towel, no water, soap or foam), sure, there will always be a hint of product that stuck on the brush. But it's so minimal that's not worth mentioning. My only concerns are that Artis is expensive (Elite Mirror brushes) and that I have the urge to treat their brushes very gentley because I don't want to repurchase their brushes for such a high amount of money.
