    Comments about ULTA Angled Foundation Brush:

    I love this brush! I have dry, sensitive skin. I don't often wear foundation, and when I do, I really don't want to look like I have it on. Unless it's a special event, I don't like to spend tons of time on my foundation, agonizing over it, and I really hate to have to put tons on just to get it "just right". This brush manages to magically get my makeup on fast and easy and blend perfectly! I'm not sure how it works, but it's a miracle product. Other brushes, sponges (BeautyBlender was waste of money for my skin), and my fingers have all been complete flops, but this brush and I get along. As long as you have it damp first, it applies liquid foundation great using a basic stippling technique.

        It was okay. Does the job, but doesn't distribute liquid foundation evenly.

        Good for powder foundation

        By MamaBT

        from Bloomington, IN

        Comments about ULTA Angled Foundation Brush:

        This is a small brush as others have said. I actually like the small size and use this to work/stipple/buff powder foundation into my T zone as a first layer. Then I apply powder foundation all over with a large kabuki brush. Other brushes work much better for liquids, but this does have a place in my rotation. It is soft and dense, and I haven't had a problem with shedding at all.

                Comments about ULTA Angled Foundation Brush:

                I've been looking for a smaller dense-bristle foundation brush because my other brushes are too big for my face and absorbe too much product. I was a bit skeptical with this store brand brush but it turns out working the way I needed. Because it covers less area, it takes more time to cover the whole face but the end result looks great. I use less product to achieve the same coverage than before. The bristle is firm but soft and doesn't shed.

                  Comments about ULTA Angled Foundation Brush:

                  I bought this to reach a dollar amount for a promotion. The brush provides a smooth texture when applying my liquid foundation. The only cons would be the price (seemed pricey for being store-brand vs name-brand) and the amount of foundation that I use. I had heard online that brushes help to avoid product waste that often occurs with sponges or blenders. I am using as much or possibly more foundation with this brush than when I was using a blender.

                        Each of the brushes accomplish different foundation applications. The Ulta Angled Foundation Brush is best used with liquid foundations and allows you to customize the coverage of your foundation depending on what technique is used. The Ulta Buffing Brush is best used with cream and mineral powder foundations and helps buff and blur foundation for an airbrushed finish.

                    • Q:

                      Hi there! I'm wondering if this brush would work well for bareminerals original powder foundation. I love their core coverage brush that's angled with a light color of bristles in the center. It's similar to this brush. The core coverage brush is very expensive and I'm looking for a similar brush. Also what type of other brushes are similar and effective? Thanks.

                        For best results, we recommend applying liquid foundation to the back of your hand, and then sweeping the brush over it to pick it up. :-)

                        A:

                        The small, angled head of the Angled Foundation Brush helps you blend and buff your foundation into all the hard-to-reach areas like around the nose and eyes. The Angled Foundation Brush provides a buffed, airbrushed look.

                        The flat Foundation Brush (Item #: 2271768) is best for applying foundation in strokes and won't provide the airbrushed look that buffing creates.

                        Either can be used to apply liquid/cream formulas of any brand. :-)
