Most Helpful Positive Review I will never use anything else! It feels & looks Wonderful!
I just started to buy my makeup and brushes from Ulta about 2 months ago. I have used liquid makeup from "box stores" for the past 50 years and I thought it was just fine. Now that I am approaching 70 years old, I thought my complexion was starting to show lines and wrinkles. I was not liking the fact that I was starting to look older, especially since I do not "feel" old. I do not believe in botox or anything surgical. But, I really wanted to look younger. My hairdresser, who is about 35 years old and always looks "Fantastic", recommended that I go to Ulta to have them help to guide me on what would look best on me. I took her advice. I have been there twice now. I have had 3 different representatives help me. Each of them were extremely knowledgeable and focused "just on ME" for as long as I needed them. They helped to find exactly the right foundation, the two-faced bronzer, the wonderful brush to apply my foundation and showed me exactly HOW to apply it, the 2 ended brush to apply the bronzer, the eyebrow pencil with the brush on the other end, the mascara AND the Finishing Spray! I feel at least 10 years younger. I have not had so many compliments on how I look for at least 10 years. The finishing spray keeps my makeup looking "Fresh" for at least 10 hours each day. It really does. And, I no longer dread putting on my makeup. I really look forward to it because the brushes make it feel SO good to apply, my skin shows through which makes it look "So Natural" and it actually takes Less Time to make me feel "Beautiful"! I am very busy taking care of my mom who is in her 90s. It is SO NICE to do something for "Me" every day to make me feel better and that feels good and only takes about 20 minutes out of my day!
I will never stop using the products I have purchased from Ulta! I wish I had started using them a few years ago!!
Thanks for giving me affordable products that have revitalized me! Also, my complexion has never been better!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Never again
Poor quality brush. Not soft at all and doesn't blend well. Tried to clean it (with brush cleaner, not even water) and all the hair came out! Returning it today.

It's summer, so I've only used the big end for CC cream and the small end for concealer. I love it and the way it blends is beautiful.
The best brush to ever exist
oflores from Yuma, AZ
This applies foundation and other cream products like a dream. I cannot get enough of this brush.
Kbranson from Albany Oregon
I used this brush for a few months and every time I used it, I regretted it. The brush strands clump together, you can see streaks from the brush in your foundation when applying. I am so disappointed.
I have never had such flawless foundation finish before!
Kae from Seattle
Holy moly, I cannot get over how incredible this brush is. I got it as a gift from my mom for Christmas and every time I use it I'm shook. I use it with a mix between the It! Cosmetics CC+ and NARS Sheer Glow foundations. I love the concealer side as well, I end up with perfect coverage despite my dark circles, and it blends my concealer into my foundation flawlessly. I do have some issues with separation or streakiness on my nose sometimes, but using the concealer/small brush side gets rid of that issue.
I've found that using a light hand is the key to success with this brush. I use a silicone based primer (nothing crazy, just the Maybelline baby skin) and moisturize well before applying makeup. I get compliments on my skin constantly now and recommend this brush to everyone.
Not the best

Brush blends nice but is really small.
This BRUSH is PERFECTION
make up lover from Cherry Hill, NJ
I have been looking for the perfect concealer and foundation brush. This brush is phenomenal. The bristles are soft and the handle is slightly gripped so it feels very secure in your hand. It also switches easily to the other brush side when using and doesn't feel massive or heavy in your hand. It fits perfectly in the corner of my eye and allows me to dab a very small amount of concealer. It blends the concealer so smoothly and nicely. I use the tarte concealer with this and it looks perfect and like I'm not even wearing makeup. It took me time to find the right concealer though.
The brush works better with a smoother concealer than a heavier concealer I have found. Heavier/denser concealers are good for spot treatment. The brush does work well to blend a denser concealer around an area you are working to cover.
In general, I have literally no need for my other concealer brushes because they don't hold a candle to what this one can do. My other concealer brushes are now useless. LOL If you're looking for a concealer brush, don't waste your time and money with other ones. This is a high quality brush.
Because it is double ended, I kept the plastic container it came in with the lid. When I am done using it, I pop it back in and put it right in my makeup cup for my brushes. I don't want to crush the bristles so I either lay it flat or pop it back in the container after it has dried from cleaning. This has worked perfect and I don't have to worry about damaging the bristles. If you're worried about storage, you can just get a little creative with it and it's no big deal.
I bought this brush after I watched a well known make up artist on youtube raving about it. She was definitely right on this one!! I am not a makeup artist but I have found my concealer at home now is drastically different because of this brush soooo.... I am in LOVE for sure.
Ultimate perfection brush, both brush ends are AMAZING!
Yes from San Jose, CA
I am a double coverage girl. I have struggled with acne and as a result have quite a few blemishes. I use both liquid and powder foundation together, to achieve maximum coverage. However, all that has changed because of this brush! I didn't think it was possible to get the right amount of coverage just by changing the tool I use to apply the liquid foundation (I use Tarte Face Tape- love it!). I have used a beauty blender for YEARS to apply liquid foundation. Now that I'm in my thirties, I felt as though my foundation settled in pores and (smile) lines of my face, making me look older. I WAS in the market for a new foundation, but decided to change my application tool and try a brush instead. I am astounded by the results! This brush gives me a FLAWLESS AIR BRUSH FINISH and provides FULL COVERAGE application! Without changing my liquid foundation, I noticed by just applying liquid foundation with this new brush, I no longer had makeup settling into pores or resting in the lines of my face, wow! This brush changed my entire makeup routine. I no longer need double coverage. This says a lot coming from a person who struggled with acne and is self conscious of blemishes, double coverage was a must. But now, I am so relieved to use one form of foundation without any powder! This brush has changed my makeup routine and ultimately the look and finish of my foundation. I highly recommend this brush! Easy to use, clean, and both ends are amazing!
Trouble blending powder foundation
DL from CA
My powder foundation is not well blended using this brush, and that small tip ended up being of no use - plus how are you supposed to store it without bending the bristles? I have come to trust It Cosmetics, so I paid top dollar for this brush but ended up regretting that decision. Not even sure I would want to carry it in my travel bag for touch-ups or over-nights. I will keep looking for a better powder foundation brush.

Gives my face foundation a flawless finish
Actually works as recommended with cc cream and concealer
Stephanie from San Clemente
It does help the cc cream to look more natural. The concealer brush end works well, way better than using fingers and other concealer brushes.
Love this brush so much!
Cherith from NH
Perfect tool for concealer and foundation. I use both ends to for concealer around the eye and the larger end is nice for buffing foundation. It cosmetics brushes are my favorites, I use every single one I have bought. They're soft and luxurious. They take products to another level.

I keep coming back.

I have a large makeup collection with lots of options for foundation and applicators but I always come back to it cosmetics cc cream+illumination and the heavenly lux complexion brush #7. Great for everyday, easy look and I always get compliments when I use these products.
Bristles come out!
Facetime from Nj
Ive been using this brush daily for about 3 months and have been thrilled with the results. Last week the bristles started coming out, little by little and yesterday i got rid of it. Truly devastated. Not sure if its a faulty brush or all are like this. May try one more time. If it happens again, im done with it!
I love this brush!
Jess from Tropical Climate
I have used this brush for liquid foundation, powder foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, highlighter. This is the "all in one" brush for me! I can't rave about this brush enough! I love to keep backups in between washes so I always have it!
My Go-To Makeup Brush
Jacqueline from Chicago Illinois
I've been using this makeup brush for 5 years, the same one! No problems shedding or wear and tear. I do wash and dry this brush once a week& it comes out perfect. I use it for liquid, powder,& creams. Its an advisement that pays off. Leaves your makeup looking airbrushed on your skin.
Best foundation brush out there
First time brush user from FLorida
This brush is so soft. I love applying liquid and powder foundation with it. I wish I could buy two and have one for each product. I know it is crazy expensive, so try to reduce the cost with a 20% off prestige coupon or some points. It's worth it.
Melissa from College Station, TX
The only con I could hge is that there are brishes at both ends- which is really a pro for a lot of people, but I like to stand my brushes up in my brush jar, so it crushes the standing end of brishes
Love this ❤️
Becca from Dallas, T
I was iffy on buying this because I thought it was a little pricey! But so worth the money!
My Favorite Brush
Susieqk from Virginia
I have the nicest finish to my foundation application with this brush. The small end is great for inner eye area & below the eyes. It is so soft that it does not bother my under eye area at all, feels beautiful. While admitting that I have only washed this with a little baby shampoo & water once, I do clean it daily with spray makeup cleaner & clean it that way. It has not shed even one fiber so far. I am VERY happy with this brush. I do hope IT continues to keep their production standards high as their business continues to grow, as I am sure it will with such awesome products! Thanks IT!
I would definitely buy this again!
Susan from Ca
Bristles are soft but firm enough to do the job. I really like this brush!
I wanted to love this
DeeKay from Pittsburgh, PA
The brush is very nice and soft and I especially love the concealer side a lot. The foundation side is nice as well. My main issue is that it sheds horribly. I take good care of my brushes and know how to properly wash/dry/store them. I know to not saturate the glue end of the brush and everything, and it is shedding so bad only after a few uses. Also, I am not the biggest fan of double sided brushes. Yes, people see it as more bang for your buck, but for cleaning and storing them, I wish they had these brushes sold separately and for less money.
Own tons of brushes, this is top 5
Beauty Madness from North Dallas
This brush is easier for me to use than the #132 that looks similar. I own a TON of brushes of all types and some are very high end. For foundation this one is my current fav. I still follow with beauty sponge to smooth the finish down or correct where I applied too much but this and my Artis oval 7 are my favorite.
Airbrush look, withou the "air"
Mimi from Orlando, Florida
Huge improvement over generic retail store brushes.
Sheds like crazy
sherry from kansas
I have purchased 3 of these. I've learned my lesson. I love this brush when I first get it. I've taken really great care of them. So I'm very disappointed that this brush sheds. it is a flaw in the brush itself. I don't understand why the company hasn't figured out what's wrong and fix it.
