Most Helpful Critical Review Blends Well, But Feels and Looks Cheap
The picture for this product is deceiving because it looks like a beautiful gold brush that should look and feel luxurious. Unfortunately, you don't see the back of the brush that has the purple Tarte pattern from the Shape Tape Concealer and "Double Duty" written on the handle, which cheapens the aesthetic to me. The worst part is the brush handle is a light plastic that feels VERY cheap. I could easily see this brush breaking in half. For almost $30, I expect better. I say this as someone who also has the Tarte bamboo foundation and contour brushes, so I know Tarte is able to make higher quality brushes. One a positive note, the brush did an excellent job of blending my foundation, and the bristles are very soft.
Overall, this brush does a good blending job, but it is definitely not worth the price. I would only recommend buying it if you have a coupon or a Tarte bonus multiplier. If you want to try a paddle blending brush at a more reasonable price, I would recommend the Blend + Blur from Real Techniques. You can get a higher quality brush with better handling for half the price with a sale and/or coupon.

Hello Beauty Queens! I Have A lot Of Foundation Brushes, Because I Couldn't Find One That I LOVED, Until NOW! This Brush Works Best For Me Out Of All The Brushes I Have Tried, I Know We All Have Different Likes And Dislikes About Our Makeup Products Because Well We Are All Made Differently, I Honestly Can Say This Is My Favorite Foundation Brush That Works Absolutely Incredible For Me!! I'm About To Buy Another One, I Decided To Review It First Before I Purchased It Again. Mine DID NOT BREAK OR ANYTHING It's Just Time To Replace It. Ya Know. ?
Great coverage even with tinted sunscreen
Sunshine from Clearwater, FL
Put tinted foundation or sunscreen on face and then used brush. Did not put directly on brush. Nice even coverage. Will purchase another spare
Works amazingly but feels cheap!
SydMoss from Maryland
I love love love how this brush performs, however, the handle feels cheap. It bends if you apply pressure and I feel like it could snap if you were too aggressive with it. Other than the quality, I love it!!
Black Hearted Bird from Nashville, Tennessee
This is one of the BEST foundation brushes I have used! I love it so much that it's the only thing I use now when putting on my foundation.
When I get done using it my face is smooth and I don't have excess product sitting in my fine lines, around my nose, or on the corners of my mouth.
It's super soft and dense so I don't feel like I'm wasting product and I'm definitely using a lot less product than I was when using a wet sponge.
Overall it's a great brush and I wish they would create a whole set of these brushes!
You NEED this!
Morgan from MD
This is hands down the best foundation brush. It blends my liquid foundation perfectly & easily. This brush cut the time it took me to apply my foundation in half. I'll forever recommend this brush.
I would buy again

Like the concept and design ; easy to manage
I don't know how I ever lived without this brush!
Leah from PA
Normally i use a foundation brush and a beauty blender to apply my foundation, I bought this brush on an impulse and I used it this morning for the first time. I have tried other brushes like this before and they kinda sucked. This brush is so soft and blended my foundation to perfection! Honestly I can't even tell I'm wearing foundation, it looks that good! I will be buying another for a back up. I don't ever want to be without this brush.
Absolutely Perfect Foundation Brush
taylorbug19 from Macon, GA
This is the holy grail of all foundation brushes... so soft and so easy to use! Makes foundation blend so easy and look flawless!!!
Super hard to clean
Lola from San Antonio, TX
Extremely hard to clean. Product gets stuck in between bristles leaving it vulnerable to bacteria. Would not recommend.
Lori from Buffalo, NY
I usually struggle using a brush to apply foundation but the brush makes applying liquid foundation so quick! I prefer to put one pump of my foundation on my finger first. I dot the foundation on my face then use the brush to blend it. I have tried putting the foundation on the brush and applying but sometimes I can't get all of the foundation off of the brush. I would definitely recommend this brush. It has reduced how much foundation I use and cut down the time to do my makeup routine.
SANDY from Michigan
This brush is the best I have found for blending make up evenly for a soft airbrushed look.
Does not blend well
Kb from Illinois
I used it twice and have had a hard time getting it to blend my makeup, prefer the beauty blender
Jadelcs from Atlanta Ga
Love this brush. It's the best.
DaniC from Michigan

BEST FOUNDATION BRUSH EVER MADE
BRIE from Texas
This is hands down the best foundation brush I have ever used.
Bubby from West Jordan UT
Best product ever to apply makeup allowing even distribution to entire face.
asb91086 from Peoria, IL
I have never focused on brushes much but was just looking for a change. The good reviews on this made up my mind. WOW. This brush completely changed the way my foundation looks. I'm not even sure how. My foundation looks completely flawless when I apply with this brush. Absolutely love it! Where has it been all my life?!??
How did I live without this?
Jessica from Detroit
I never knew how amazing this would make my makeup look. Wish I would've gotten one sooner. Better than the beauty blender, doesn't waste tons of product.
Brenda from Jackson NJ
First time in my life I found a product to help me apply foundation, and not felt self conscious about the final product. Applies evenly across face and troubled areas. I have rosacea, so my skin is usually always dry, flaky and rough. I was very pleased with my makeup when I had finish. This bad boy gets a special place in my bathroom and not just thrown in with all my other brushes!
Great foundation brush
Anslerts from Virginia
This is a great brush! The rounded edges blend my concealer nicely and it's large in the middle for quick coverage.
Smooth, no streaks, best brush ever!
Michelle from Texas
This brush applies my Tarte foundation without streaks. My skin looks smooth and the coverage is perfect.
My go to foundation brush
JR from VA
Never been a fan of foundation brushes. But I tried this one and fell in love with it. Applies easily and helps blend out perfectly. Really glad I tried it because now I can't apply my foundation without it.
The Best Foundation Brush Ever!!!
Tana MUA from Kansas City, MO
This is the best brush I've ever used! It smooths and blends my foundation so well and it's so soft! You need to get this if you use the Face Tape foundation!
JulieSeys from Wisconsin
For years I just used my fingers to apply foundation because I was never a fan of the small sponges that are often used for applying the product. When I was purchasing a new foundation at Ulta the beauty consultant used this applicator and I noticed the even distribution of the product so I was sold on it.
Love the texture, hate the handle
Danaere from Texas
The brush is super soft and makes applying foundation easier. Washes clean easily.
The handle feels like the cheapest, flimsiest thin plastic junk - as if it was a $2 brush. I'm overly careful with it because I'm sure it's going to snap unexpectedly.
