I LOVE this foundation brush! I purchased this brush over 2 weeks ago & have used it everyday since then with NO fall out of the brush bristles....I know 2 weeks is not that long but I have had high end/name brand brushes shed within the first couple uses. I use this to apply Clinique's Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup & it applies the foundation smoothly, evenly, streak free & I don't need to use a lot of product with this brush. I am able to pat foundation a little more heavily in areas I feel need more coverage & I can use the swirling/buffing motion to blend the product out & onto the rest of my face. I do feel the brush is expensive but I will purchase this again once I need to replace my current brush or when I want to get a 2nd one to keep in my travel bag.
This brush is great quality for a brush, that's a given. I've been faithfully using a real technique complexion sponge for over 2 years and it was very difficult and pretty much impossible for me to adjust using a brush. The application was streaky, uneven, and highlted the texture on my skin in the worse way possible. I have normal texture with a few acne scars and need an even air brush finish when possible and that did not happen with this brush. Maybe my skin type just prefers a sponge over a brush....hope this helps someone out there!

I have bought this foundation brush time and time again. It is undoubtedly high quality, and survives quite a long time. It goes right back to new after each brush bath. The design is sleek and attractive with super soft brush. The only thing negative I have to say is that if you do not wash it for a while, the application process does become a bit streaky and requires more time to blend in. Other than that, it is a trust worthy go to!

I have a lot of brushes that have done well, but I haven't paid the price I did with this one. But, the brush is great, works great with the foundation it was recommended for by others, and I too would recommend.

Foundation goes on flawlessly! Feels soft & smooth on my sensitive skin. Blends beautifully with no streaks.
Mandy from TN
I really like this product, I had the older style foundation brush by Clinique but it was not working as good as it used to. I optioned for what I consider the newer better option. I don't do glamorous makeup but this brush is great for me. I squirt a little foundation and dot my face. It blends perfectly. The price is a little crazy for one brush,but I don't think you can go wrong with the return policy at Ulta. Ulta makes it easy for me to step out of my comfort zone with such a great policy.

My favorite brush for my cream products! The best brush purchase I've made!
Natalie from Idaho
Doesn't easily blend and leaves makeup very streaky
Lucy from Melbourne, FL
I use this brush with a cream foundation in a compact. Now that I am using it I have a much smoother finish on my face.

My foundation now is really nice and smooth

I have used a lot of brushes. It was a little expensive, but wow am I glad I spent the extra money. I think with the new brush, it is airy with the bristle and distributes the foundation smoothly and efficiently. I will buy it again and now I am ready for a whole collection of these brushes. I am so glad the sales clerk for Clinique was there to help me.

I purchased this brush to use with my liquid foundation. I have hallways worn powder foundation, and wanted to switch to liquid. I was having an awful time applying it evenly. With this brush, it's easy. You distribute the product evenly, and use less of it. It totally took the guesswork out of it for me. This brush works so much better than using a beauty blender, or my fingers.

Gorgeous tool. Wish I had discovered this earlier. I have brushes/sponges from all price points and brands and this has become my favorite. Great for stippling or buffing!
Pooks from Orlando
I bought this with my Clinique foundation and it applies it so well. I use to use a sponge....so glad I switched. Applies evenly and does not soak up as much foundation

New to makeup but the Mac woman recommended this for me with my Studio Fix powder foundation.
No qualms with it.
Debra from San Diego County
I use it everyday for my foundation. It's super easy to use and doesn't cause any streaks. Highly recommend it!

Wonderful brush - helped apply my MAC foundation evenly without using too much product. This is my new go to brush for applying foundation.

Brush works well -- compares to IT brushes
Michelle from Missouri
Great brush that was introduced to me while I was getting my makeup done at Ulta. (Which I highly recommend!)
Can be used for liquid, but also for powder, which is great!
Alxies from Detroit
This brush buffs foundation like a dream. No lines or streaks and didn't shear out my foundation like my beauty blender. I apply the foundation to my face a little drop on my forehead, cheeks and chin then with the brush I swipe it down spread the foundation then I use a circular motion to buff the foundation to a flawless finish. I'm planning on buying a backup!

I bought this brush to blend out my CC cream. It fits my hand very well
Dar grazz from Orlando Florida
This is not a good concealer brush. I do use it for powder, the bristles are not tight and the foundation is absorbed
Christine from Paradise, CA
This brush smooths out the extra foundation if you put to much on.
