This brush makes my foundation look and stay better on my skin. The very soft, dense bristles feels very nice on the skin. I apply my foundation with a dabbing motion on areas where I needed the most coverage and blend outwards for other areas that don't need much coverage. The application is (surprisingly) quick and easy. The small angled brush head is actually a plus for me as it helps the …Read more

My mom has been using this powder ever since she was young so I decided to follow her step and bought this. It's lightweight, it never gives a cakey look and keeps my very oily skin matte for long hours. It has a generous amount of powder and with everyday use, it has lasted me for 1,5 years. It's inexpensive and effective. A mother always knows best.

I like a full coverage with a matte finish so the Estee Lauder Double Wear is like my perfect bff. It controlled oiliness very well, 5 hours until I had the need to blot and it didn't fade until I took it off at the end of the day, even on my oiliest areas such as my t-zone. It also covered all the minor scars and hyperpigmentation very well. It gave a smooth-matte and non cakey finish …Read more

This is the best loose powder ever. Yes, the price would make everyone cringe a little. But the quality and goodness this powder have given to my skin is unbeatable. Upon application, my skin looked poreless, so smooth and it brightened up my complexion. It gave a soft, matte finish, and controlled oiliness very well.

I have used this as a setting powder for both tinted mineral …

I applied this foundation with a dense brush (the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush) then set it with Clinique Blended Face Powder, my skin appeared smoother and my skintone looked even. I wore this in hot, humid weather, I had to blot by the 4th hour then the foundation started to wear off on my very oily t-zone by the 6th hour, but it managed to look fresh on the rest of my face for 10 hours …Read more

The color doesn't really show on me yet it looks lovely on a friend with fairer skin. This has to be applied repeteadly throughout the day as it's very sheer and doesn't last long. Overall I really like the product because it looks so natural on the lips and moisturizing. Other 'stronger' color from the line will probably suit me better.

Mine is in the shade Bare Hug, which is a nude-pinky coral when applied to my lips. It feels so smooth on the lips, non-drying and the color really brightens my face. It stays for about 4 hours and would left a lovely stain on the lips after taking meal.

I bought the translucent extra coverage, the oil-control is amazing on my oily, acne-prone skin. I could get away for 6 hours without blotting (usually I have to blot every 3 hours) and my skin would still look semi-matte. The fragrance doesn't bother me much, I think they have reduced the fragrance since it's not overpowering at all like from what I've read. It does tend to make …Read more

Just an average brush. On my skin, this works better for applying setting or loose powder than liquid products as the bristles aren't so dense. The result is good. I've had it for several months, wash it once a week and there's only been minimal shedding.

UPDATE:
Terrible shedding after a year, then all the bristles came out of the ferrule not long after.

One of the best foundation brush! Especially if you're just starting to do make up. I use this with bb cream and liquid foundation, this brush applies fast, covers almost all imperfections and delivers a smooth result. Very soft bristles, no sheddings, easy to wash and dries quickly after wash too.
