    Comments about ULTA Highlighting Brush:

    At first I thought that this would be much too big to be a highlighting brush. I bought it planning to use it for blush, bronzer, or powder. But, I decided to give it a try at its intended purpose, and it actually did a great job! It gave great pigmentation and applied my highlight smoothly. I recommend trying it at an angle if it is too big for your face shape. I'm definitely glad I bought it!

          Comments about ULTA Highlighting Brush:

          i would not recommend this. i barely touched the highlight and the powder was all over the place but the brush. there was constant bristle flakes on my face that i would have wipe off every single time i applied highlight.

          Comments about ULTA Highlighting Brush:

          The brush was so thick that I couldn't use it as a highlighting brush, a better use for this brush would be a contour brush. I was unsatisfied because I wanted a new highlighting brush but since I can use it for something else it's alright.

              I love ULTA products but this stippling brush is very disappointing!! The hairs fall off and I'm picking them off as I go not what I expected!!

                      Comments about ULTA Highlighting Brush:

                      After many years of only wearing makeup to formal events/large family gatherings, I started getting interested in it this year. A good friend has been helping me to learn how to find a look & style I like and in the process recommended I stop using the brushes, pads, and applicators that come with the products and look into getting proper brushes. Since I'm on a budget I grabbed this one and, while not as soft as the It Cosmetics brushes I would love to own, it's soft and applies highlighter nicely. I'll definitely be looking to replace my dollar store brushes with more from this line.

                        I used this brush to highlight my cheeks and returned it. It's too large, a fan brush would work much better.

                            A:

                            This brush is about 9" in length. Its bristles are designed to provide very sheer coverage of loose powder products such as highlighter, so it can be used to apply loose powder blush sheerly.
