Yes, yes, yes, this brush is fabulous! I've never been a fan of paddle foundation brushes but this one has changed my mind, the day I bought it was the last day I applied foundation with fingers.First off, it's super soft and distributes foundation flawlessly in very thin layers, the difference around my nose is super noticeable. I just dot my face with foundation, apply with the brush is gentle upwards/outwards strokes and sometimes swirl/buff it with my MAC 187 but this step is mostly for the fun of it. The skin looks very natural and you can add a second layer where needed because it applies it in super fine layers whilst still looking natural.I still like the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush too but I use it mostly for travels because it's a pain to clean and takes long to dry but the small size of it is convenient when packing. The Lancome one has become my everyday foundation brush because of the natural finish it provides, it's much easier to clean and dries fast - you still have to wash it after each use. Definitely not cheap but well made and durable.I'm thrilled!EDIT: After a year of use the Lancome brush is still a firm favourite. I did notice that although I washed it with either baby shampoo or dish soap after each use after some months there was a lot of foundation built-up so a wise MUA member advised me to use oil instead. Miracle! Now I have some olive oil in a hair serum bottle near the sink and rub some amount in before the daily washing. Ever since I started doing so my brush looks brand new again. There's no doubt it will last many more years and quite possibly I won't need my backup eithyer. I LOVE IT!

I splurged on this brush a long time ago and ended up not using it much at first. It didn't seem like anything special. I've since tried it again and really like it. The tapered shape is useful for working foundation around my nose and eyes. The brush is good if full coverage is desired as it picks up a lot of product. Not so good for trying to apply foundation with a lighter hand, or if doing slap-dash make-up and not having much time to blend. Once I realized that, I know to only reach for it when taking the time to do full-coverage make-up for special occasions.

Pros:Cant think of any.Cons:Picks up product and absorbs them resulting in using more foundation. So thats wastage. Also bristles are too soft to pick up foundation. Not firm enough. Again, u tend to pump more foundation and thats wasting. Feels like a wet paint brush, literally. Like the other reader said it clumps & boy it clumps real bad, big time!Compared to bobbi brown foundation brush, this is soo bad/the worst! Thankfully, I got this with the holiday beauty box set so i didnt spend much. Mine comes in a travel size handle but nevertheless i still find this ineffective. On the flip side short handle makes it light, travel friendly. But wil not re- purchase. Sorry!

Best foundation brush out there! I have ones from Estée Lauder, Napoleon Perdis, Benefit, Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Tom Ford, etc and the only brush that I like just slightly less is the one by Gorgeous Cosmetics. The Lancôme brush is tapered, so I can get around the eye area, yet super dense so I can get full coverage if desired! I use this brush on all my clients and it's a go to! I have 15 of them, that's how much I love it!!! :)

Cons- It seems like I need twice as much foundation as I did with my old/other foundation brushes- synthetic, NOT natural, bristles- expensive (but average for high end brushes)- I don't really see what the big deal is with this foundation brush & why it has gotten such glowing reviews on this site.Pros- Blends wellWould I repurchase? NO.

I bought this brush at Shoppers Drug Mart for $42 CAN. The best points about this brush are the long handle for the best control, the firmer bristles for higher coverage and for longer use (the brush's bristles's are very firm which is good since the brush will be ore durable and last longer), the soft bristles and the size which is perfect for getting in tight corners of the face such as around the nose area and under the eyes. The only con of this brush is that you kind of have to 'break it in' over a few uses since the bristles are very firm however this point will be a bonus in the long run. Overall lovely standard foundation brush!

I had a clinique one before and I loved it, so when I had to replace it I expected this to do a good job as well. (they look and feel the same) It's a nice brush, you can tell it's high quality. it's very soft, applies makeup easily and smoothly. That said my only problem it that like it kind of clumps together oddly sometimes, so i have to bring the bristles together again with my fingers and smooth them out.

This applies make up wonderfully. I actually wanted the Clinique one, but they where sold out. So the Clinique SA took me to the Lancome counter and sold me this baby.I truly love it, the only reason I wont repurchase is because I really want to try MAC brushes and the Ecotool ones too.But this is totally a great item
