Most Helpful Positive Review I'll never use a make-up sponge again!
I have acne prone skin so I have to be so careful with what I put on my face. My Clinique Cosmetics Consultant told me that make-up songes hold and breed bacteria that can cause break-outs. She suggested that I try this foundation brush instead and I LOVE it! The application is so smooth and even and blends beautifully, and I haven't had a major break-out since I started using it. I highly recommend this product, especially to those with acne prone, and/or sensitive skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not having the same results as others
I have owned this brush now for a few months and I have to say that im not really impressed by it at all. I dont know if I have a defective one or what but mine doesnt perform like the other reviewers. It seems that whenever I use mine I have instead of a broad even layer of foundation on my skin i have a layer with bristle streaks in it. It actually takes me longer to apply foundation with this brush then other applicators. I have used the brush with 3 different types of foundations and had the same results. I end up having to go over every single spot over and over to get rid of these streaks.

Works well for foundation but also primers concealer masks skincare. Easy to wash too. Keeps hands clean when applying makeup. Use a sponge after to avoid streaks

I have had a flat tip brush before so I thought I would try Clinique. This brush feels very nice but leaves marks and uses up a lot of foundation.
Best brush ever!
Louie from California
I've purchased and used high-end brushes all my life. This is my favorite of all time: flawless application, great coverage and product goes on smoothly.
Best foundation brush
Amy from Knoxville
This is a great brush - expensive but worth it. I've been using mine for several years - just clean regularly. I recently tried another foundation brush but it just didn't smooth foundation on well. With cliiwu's brush, it doesn't need much product either to achieve coverage.
Marie from Michigan
I have never used a foundation brush before and purchased this on a whim when there was a sale. The bristles are soft and smooths the foundation nicely. No streaks and flawless coverage. Threw out my sponges.
Lars02 from Somers, CT
This is my second of this brush. I had the first for over 15 years until the bristles began to fall out. I LOVED it. My new one, though it looks identical, does not perform like the last. The bristles splay resulting in a messy application. I have the brush cleaner and it even that doesn't help. The old brush bristles stayed perfectly together use after use after use. 1st time ever (over 30 years) being disappointed in a Clinique product.
works very well

MissMommyLady from Illinois
I use this to apply liquid foundation and it blends really well! The bristles are soft and easy to clean.
Good for concealer
Mudfoot from Kentucky
I don't use this brush often because it doesn't do the job well on my whole face - which is why I gave it three stars. It works well for under eye concealer and for spot treating blemishes. It is wellmade and will last.
Lasts a very long time

Ive had this brush since 8th grade, i'm 24 now. It finally gave up and i am about to order a new one. I absolutely love it.
Lasts a Long Time

I've had this brush since I was a teenager and it still does its job.
Used to be made well
MK07 from Houston, TX
This foundation brush used to be made well and of very high quality. I got one in 2008 and had it up until last year, Because it was slowly losing bristles here and there. After only having the new brush for around 1 year, It is rapidly losing bristles, maybe 15 a day. It is virtually useless, and I wish I wouldn't have thrown away the old one, because it was in better condition than the new one. Next time I will find a different company who has a better made product to buy from now.
Great, but the Buffing Foundation Brush is BETTER
kellycecora from Ravenna, OH 44266, USA
This was my go-to foundation brush for the longest time. I had it forever - it's very well made and can last a long time if cared for properly (I use Clinique's makeup brush cleaner). My foundation went on smoothly and I felt like I was wasting less product than putting it on with my fingers. However, I have a new love: Clinique's Buffing Foundation Brush. Gives me an even MORE flawless finish!
alehar from PORTLAND MAINE
I exchanged the Buff brush for this one and still not satisfied with either. Although the slim profile does lend getting into crevices and gently applying under eye area. It doesn't sweep liquid foundation well to blend at all. Cleaning it out is an issue too. Using take the day off makeup remover still leaves the bristles spiked when dry. They don't fan out well.
Why this has so many five star reviews is beyond me. The price point doesn't reflect the value of product. My go to foundation brush has been the Shisedo Perfect Foundation brush and it really is. So will stick with that.
Apply foundation has never been this easy
JZhao from Toronto
I received a travel size which is perfect to carry in my "grab and go" cosmetic bag. No more foundation on my palm and finger tips. Love this brush!

Excellent brush so flat they recommend it
Love! You will too
MBell from Boston, MA
Works great! Highly recommend. I've had other brushes that irritate my skin. This one is soft and smoothes your liquid foundation perfectly.

The brush applied my foundation perfectly and took less time than the beauty blender.
Made to Last

Great brush for makeup
Judy from Modesto, CA
Perfect way to keep from putting on too much foundation.
I LOVE this brush!
DenCan from Katy, TX, USA
This brush works really well. The foundation goes on easily with the brush and you don't need much (no waste like with a sponge) to give you smooth flawless looking skin. It is super easy to clean with the make up remover. I've had this brush for a few years and it still works great!
Rups from Canada
The brush is durable, blends perfectly and of good quality.
emi1337 from Ann Arbor, MI, USA
For the price of this brush, I would have expected it to last much longer than it did. The bristles on mine started falling out after about a year of regular (once daily) use. I kept it clean, and didn't really travel with it, so I'm not sure if I got a bad one or not, but I would've expected it to last much longer without falling apart.
