    Comments about Tarte The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush:

    Blends makeup really well. Make sure you clean it every other week.. makeup does stay in brush even if it doesn't look like it but you should always clean your brushes no matter what to avoid bacteria.

              I tried this brush at ULTA and just had to purchase one! I haven't used the one I purchased yet, but will do soon. I DID use it in the store and fell in love with it. Very happy with this dual-sided brush!

                I've been eyeing this brunch for awhile and finally splurged because I finally bought a contour kit and I had a good coupon. This brush works great to apply my contour and blend it. I use the Real Techniques setting brush for my highlight. Very pleased with my purchase.

                    I really wanted to love this brush, but it just doesn't work for me. have watched tons of videos and no matter how carefully I blend, it rubs off my foundation and looks patchy. I only use high end brushes, and for the price it should not be so difficult.

                            How does this compare to Tarte's double ended foundation brush? From the rainforest of the sea collection?

                              This brush is best for contouring since it has a domed end with compact bristles, ideal for tracing contouring shades along the angles of the face. The opposite angled end then blends the pigment seamlessly into skin for a contoured effect. The water foundation brush features fluffier bristles ideal for buffing on all over coverage. It is also doubled-ended and features a smaller blending side to buff liquid foundation formulas along smaller areas of the face, such as around the nose.

                          • Q:

                            So I can use this brush to dip in a cream contour pallet and blend on my face? Or would I have to use a different brush to dip it in the pallet?

                              This brush could work great for that, since it's for cream contouring formulas. We recommend dipping the domed side into the palette and the buffing it directly onto the face. You can then blend over any harsh lines using the angled side of the brush.

Both brushes feature dual ends and full, plush synthetic bristles, and both are ideal for application of blush, highlighter, and contour/bronzer.
