      I use this brush every day for my IT Better Than Skin CC cream. My skin looks polished and flawless! Much better than using my fingers or a sponge. Will be buying another one for use with other liquid foundations!

        A protective cover for it would be great for traveling to help protect the bristles. I tote mine back and forth to the gym. I am thinking of just getting a second one to leave in the gym bag.

          I used to use the sponge rounds or beauty blenders, but then my friend reccommended this brush to me. I made the best decision purchasing this brush. Its honestly the best tool to use to evenly put your liquid foundation on. I use this brush everyday and its sooo soft! If you buy this product, it will be the best decision you will ever make!

            Just way too expensive for such an average product. I did not think it blended or applied my makeup very well and I was somewhat disappointed.

                This brush was suggested to use with Urban Decay's Naked Skin Liquid Makeup. So I decided to try it, to get the full effect I wanted from this make up brand and they were right. This brush makes the make-up blend in well leaving your makeup looking natural. I love it!!

                  I LOVE this foundation brush. Once I find a brush I like, I don't really branch out, I am SOO glad I tried this one though. I've already bought two because I love it so much. So soft and when applying foundation really gives you an even coverage! I love how you can buff on more foundation in areas you may have a problem in!

                  Great brush, but damageable.

                  Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush:

                  I have a love-hate relationship with this brush. Before I started using it, I loved the sleek look and feel of it. I liked that it had a nice weight to it when I pick it up. But when I use it, it's a different story. It is soft and makes my foundation look great, but the weight of it makes it easy to drop. I've dropped this brush a few times and because the handle is made of aluminum, it dents and scratches really easily. It is also a pain in the behind to wash, but all dense face brushes are. If you don't mind the easily damageable handle and would go through the trouble of being painstakingly careful when using it or aren't OCD like I am, then go for it. Otherwise, there are other face brushes out there that are just as good and even better than this one.

                      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).

                    can be done? What brush do you recommend? Thank you in advance for your advice.

                      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.

                  • Q:

                    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.
