    Comments about ULTA Foundation Brush:

    The brush is okay for an Ulta item, but it leaves foundation streaks and doesn't help mix foundation in with your face.

          For lack of a better word, the brush shed hair. It was all over my face and set in the foundation. I returned it the next day

              Comments about ULTA Foundation Brush:

              I purchased this item because I read you are supposed to apply foundation with a brush verses a sponge. It was a little awkward at first, but it is amazing how much better the ending effect is! Must change to brush, looks way more flawless and you use less of the product you are applying.

                  Comments about ULTA Foundation Brush:

                  I didn't need a new foundation brush, but couldn't resist the sale price. Also, this brush is fuller than most of my others. I have been using Josie Maran foundation and the brush that came with it was impossible to use around my eyes and didn't do anything for the pores on my nose.

                  This one solves both my problems and gives a flawless finish. To reiterate, I get a much better result using the very same foundation. I am 69 years old and therefore use a foundation with as much moisture as I can get.

                        A:

                        You can achieve fuller coverage using the flat Foundation Brush, while the rounded Angled Foundation Brush works best to achieve medium coverage. Angled Foundation Brush also is designed to buff foundation to an airbrushed finish.

                    • Q:

                      Why is it best practice to put the foundation on you fingers and onto your face and not directly onto the brush?

                        A:

                        We find that this is the easiest way to distribute foundation onto your face without wasting any of it! :-) Another technique is to dispense foundation onto the back of your hand, then pick up with the brush, tapping onto the face on forehead, nose, cheeks, then blend and buff to a perfect finish. We recommend experimenting to see which technique works best for you!
