Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush

Item #: 2248404

Ask a Question
The densely packed shape of Urban Decay's Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush distributes product incredibly evenly. Skin looks smoother than it does when applied with a sponge...buffed to a natural, soft-focus finish. The "optical blurring" comes in when you buff out your makeup: the shape works with light-diffusing spheres in Naked Skin Liquid Makeup to make skin appear even smoother - fine lines seem to disappear. (This is great news for everyone, but especially for those with mature skin craving a youthful finish.) Want to know why this brush works so well? Two things: The densely packed hairs pick up and distribute makeup evenly and allow you to really buff the texture, while the domed, medium-large shape maneuvers nicely around the face, so makeup applies evenly under your eyes, around your nose and through the brow area. The Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush features synthetic brush hairs, which are more hygienic than real hair (and there's no stinky wet-hair smell!). And the gorgeous gunmetal handle is made of recycled aluminum.
Distribute foundation with brush and apply with a circular motion for a flawless, airbrushed finish. The perfect tool for applying Naked Skin Weightless Ultra-Definition Liquid Makeup.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush:

      I used to use a sponge to apply foundation but wanted to try something better. I happen to see this brush and although it was a little pricey I bought it. I absolutely love this brush. It allows me to apply less makeup with more coverage and cleans up so easy.

        This brush is soft and works great at applying the foundation. I have never been one to use a brush as I have always found them a waste of money but this one is totally different and worth it.

            This brush works great with the Beauty Balm (BB) moisturizer. Gives nice even coverage and helps (BB) go a lot further. Easy to clean since brush is synthetic (shampoo and warm water). Urban Decay is the best and no animal testing!!

                      A:

                      Similar to the Soft Focus Face Brush from bareMinerals, Good Karma features full, rounded, tapered bristles. Both are synthetic bristle hair material. Good Karma's bristles are more densely packed for firmer, fuller application. Good Karma can also be used to apply both liquid/cream and powder formulas, while Soft Focus is designed for powder formulas only. We hope this info helps!

                      A:

                      We recommend cleaning your brush weekly using brush shampoo or a mild hair shampoo and water. Massage lather gently through the bristles underneath running water until clean, then allow to fully dry before next use. You can also spray in between uses with brush cleaner to keep your brush clean between weekly shampoos (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                      A:

                      You can certainly use a brush instead of the included applicator sponge to apply UD Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder. If you prefer fuller application of your powder, you can use Urban Decay Cosmetics Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush. For best lighter coverage application, we recommend using a large, full, fluffy powder brush.

                    Is this product compatible with the new BareSkin by bareminerals? The sales associate told me that bareskin only worked with the new perfecting face brush by bareminerals and if I didn't use it I'd have a big mess.However, I've heard great things about this brush.

                      A:

                      We recommend using bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522), designed specifically to use with bareSkin Foundation, for best results, though you can certainly apply using a another foundation brush like this one! Its full, plush bristles should work well.

                      Since, unlike Perfecting Face Brush, this brush doesn't feature a reservoir, you may have the best luck with application by applying bareSkin Foundation directly to the face using your fingers, then using this brush to buff and blend it to a flawless finish. Experiment and see what works best for you!

                      Urban Decay created this brush specifically for Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, but it works beautifully with ANY liquid, cream, or powder foundation, including bareMinerals! The soft, dense bristles allow you to apply, buff and "blur" your makeup to a totally flawless finish.
