Can't believe I've been using Bobbi Brown blush for umpteen years and have only just bought the blush brush. I've always used quality brushes but thought a good finish was due partly to the tools and partly to technique, so I didn't think I needed to spend so much on a brush. Until I tried this one...I've had this brush for a few weeks now and I can confirm that all the great reviews are true! It's really made a huge difference in the application and look of my makeup. An excellent SA at my local BB counter showed me how to use the tapered side to apply, and the fluffier side to blend the colour in. I dab the brush in the blush just once, tap off the excess, brush it over both apples, then turn the brush over to blend. The result - a soft, seamless veil of colour, with almost no effort. I think I've sometimes over-applied my blush only because this brush is so enjoyable to use!It's supersoft but dense, giving good control over application and blending. I've had no shedding at all, and use the protective plastic cap provided to store it in my BB brush case so that the bristles don't get caught in the zip.It's expensive, but a worthwhile investment. I have other BB brushes that are 20 years old but are still like new so if this is the same I'll get my money's worth.

I held off on this for ages. Bought Real Techniques and other cheaper options in the past. Trust me!! Just go for it. Brilliant investment and once you have it that's you. It applies the perfect amount of blusher and blends the edges so seamlessly. It's easy to use and you know that you are going to get a nicely blended blush and not a blob of pigment. Expensive but worth it. This was the first bobbi brush I bought and I have gone on to get rid of my old brushes and slowly replace them with hers. They are well well worth it

This is the best brush ever. Of all my brushes this is the one I love the most. It's expensive but you will have a very hard time finding a dupe for this brush. I use it for bronzer and blush. It packs on evenly and precise and it picks up a lot of product. Love it. I would repurchase. The brush sheds a tiny bit but it's not much.

This brush is amazing. I've tried blush brushes from Sigma, MAC and Benefit and this one blows them all out of the water. First, the quality of the brush is outstanding. It doesn't shed - at all. The head of the brush is thick and full and picks up just the right amount of pigment. I love how I can blend the blush out right where I need to and build up the color slowly. It's an obviously well crafted, high quality brush and I really enjoy using it.Having said that, it's expensive as sh*t. I consider it an investment piece I'll have for years and years, but it is expensive. Could you make do with something else? Sure, but after years of using the other brushes, this one is worth it to me.

I use this brush for 15 years and have replaced it 2 times, excellent brush for blush and overall setting powder, although you have to be careful with very pigmented blush such as theBalm Frat Boy, Down Boy, etc. It will make it look like a clown if you are not careful. Hence, I have since switched to other blush brushes such as the Zoeva cream cheek and luxe cheek that has a softer application. Maybe this is more suitable for light color blush or those that are hard-pressed into the pan. Currently, I am using it for setting loose powder.

I wanted to love it so, I love the paddle shape because it's so conducive to the way I typically apply blush, but alas, the one I got is very very scratchy and sheds. The application is so good that I find myself still attempting to use it every once in a while and then I always regret it.

This is the best blush brush I've tried,ever! It has brown,soft hair so I think it's not the same as for example the latest reviewer.Cause this isn't harsh at all,and it does not shed a bit. It's perfect. And I love the long handle,it gives me more control applying blush. I got this with a better price,so I didn't had to pay the full 55$ for it. That's a lot of monni,I would not pay that much of any brush. But I'm in love with this.It's hair is warm brown,I'm not sure if it's the same that in the picture.But it says blush,and authentic.Very soft hair,domed.

I had high hopes for this brush, given the $60 price tag, but it simply didn't live up to them. AT ALL. The hairs weren't soft, so I had to be extremely careful in using it. Otherwise I just feel like I am hurting myself! If I hadn't bought it from sephora I would have thought I got a fake one (I am so thankful for their return policy). I ended up exchanging it for hourglass brush #2 (which is synthetic hair) and that was a great decision. I do want to add that my skin is fairly sensitive, but the roughness I felt was just completely reasonable for the price. There are lots of cheaper options or similarly priced options that are significantly better and easier to use. Real techniques multitasker or Hakuhodo J110 are both great options, I highly recommend those. But definitely not this one. If you are willing to spend this much on a brush, go for something else.

I used to have the MAC 129 which was a similar size but had less density than this. I ended up replacing the MAC 129 with this because I loved the shape but it shed so much and was scratchy as hell.Both brushes were made with goat hair, but Bobbi Brown's hairs were considerably softer. This brush is a paddle shaped standard blush brush which I liked, and had a very slight taper to it so it concentrates a bit more colour. It's not as tapered as the EcoTools one which I hated, so that was good.However, this brush can not stop shedding on me. Yes, I have the newer version that's supposed to be the better version of the original scratchy one. At first this was very soft, but it started getting a little scratchy after a few months. I take care of my brushes very well and I wash them weekly with Tsubaki shampoo, and dry them at a slight angle. I make sure that the wet brush always faces down and ensure that water doesn't get into the ferrule at the top.I'm disappointed by this brush although it functions very well as a blush brush. It diffuses colour perfectly and picks up the right amount of pigment. But for 50-something to 60-something CAD, I expected better quality. For that money, I shouldn't be constantly picking hair off my face. These days, I can go buy a Hakuhodo brush that's 1000x better in quality and made of squirrel hair for the same price that rarely sheds. Will not repurchase.

This is my favorite brush of all time. It's so soft and I've only had it for 3 years, but there's been no shedding at all from it. I wish that it had a shorter handle so that it would be easier to travel with, but it's still a great brush regardless.It's meant to be a blush brush, but I've also used it to apply other powder products.
