I began to use this product when my old IT foundation brush wore out. I bought it on line and did not realize it was so small. It takes more work

            I love it just to apply foundation initially on my face, it does feel a little cheap like the handle but it's amazing quality for the price!

              I bought this brush because honestly I didn't want to spend $23 on the IT Ulta brush and now I wish I would have spend the extra $10.

                  Comments about ULTA Foundation Brush:

                  I hadn't used a foundation brush before this. I had used the sponges, but not a brush. I thought it was kind of weird, but decided to give it a try after watching one of your tutorials where someone used it. The application with the brush was so much better than I'd ever experienced. I'm older, so anything to help smooth out my complexion is great and the brush application really does it. I went ahead and got the concealer brush as well and they work so well together. I'm amazed.

                      My foundation brush of 7 years was reaching it's end. Having always paid $40+ I was in the mood to try something different. (As a regional makeup artist for one of the largest cosmetics companies in business I was a little brainwashed.) This was a great deal so I decided to give it a whirl. I was completely surprised!! The weight of the brush was balanced and easy to hold. The bristles were very soft and didn't drink my foundation. The finish was smooth and streak free. It also gave me a lighter coverage than my old brush which made for a more natural yet still flawless look. I've only had it for a short time so I can't really testify to how long it will last. But so far no bristles have fallen out and it completely cleans in a jiff. Barring any unforeseen disasters I can honestly say this will be my go to brush from now on!!

                          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.

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

                          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!
