Rated 3.18 out of 5 stars
I LOVE this brush. I see a lot of people saying that it sucks for foundation, but that's because they're probably using it with thick liquid foundation. It only works with thin formulas and only if you use a small amount to get light to medium coverage (which is how foundation is supposed to be used anyway.) This brush is mainly meant for powder products. I use it to apply my loose powder foundation (Tarte Amazonian Clay 24HR Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation) and I have a second one for applying blush and I adore them. It distributes product very evenly in a light layer, which makes whatever you're using look more skin like, natural and seamless, it doesn't cause micro-exfoliation (lifting of dead skin cells when using a buffing motion,) it's easy to clean, it's crazy affordable, it's soft, and it's duo-fiber, which I love. It CAN work well with liquid foundation as well, but only if you're using something light to medium coverage in light layers. I use it with the Lancome Teint Idole foundation as well as the Nars Sheer Glow (one pump only for my entire face, neck and ears) and it makes my foundation look absolutely flawless and one with the skin. If you're working with something that is thick and cakey and you use a lot of product this brush will NOT work for you. It will leave streaks and will not blend it properly. I find that this works best for powder foundation, blush, bronzer, finishing powder, or even contour powder and highlighting powder if you like to sweep it all over the area rather than being precise and intense with your application. Once you learn to use this brush you should love it!
If you're attempting to use this brush for anything but the thinnest liquid foundation it's not going to work. Duo fiber brushes are too flimsy. If you want more coverage or use a thicker liquid or cream foundation use the M439 foundation buffer brush. The long, flimsy hairs on the M406 won't move a heavy foundation enough to blend it out. I use this one for applying a light, glowy bronzer after a deeper, matte bronzer and the duo fibers are perfect for not picking up and depositing too much pigment. This is definitely not for picking up firmly packed product.

I love the quality of these brushes. I clean my brushes every week and they always look like new. No loose bristles after a year. My makeup goes on so much smoother and I love how it does not leave loose bristles.

The brush is very flimsy and instead of blending product it seems to just spread a thick layer around my face

I use the brush for foundation application only. I apply an even amount of my Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation to the face of the brush, and apply it in small circular motions one small section of my face at a time. For those who have issues with this brush leaving streaks or other unsatisfying results... maybe it's your foundation, not the brush?

This brush isn't worth it, just buy something else. I t doesn't have enough bristles to apply the foundation, much less make it look good. No matter how hard I tried, I had brush strokes everywhere and then bristles started falling out after the first use. I will be returning.

I love this brush. I used it with nars matte foundation. I just pick up a little at a time and stipple and buff
..end results...flawless coverage. It also works great for blush and bronzer.

I don't know why such bad reviews but as a make up artist I absolutely love this brush in my kit! Applies beautifully
NsL from Greenville, SC
It just doesn't apply or blend in foundation. The bristles are few and far in between and it won't blend correctly.

Salesperson recommended this brush to use with the KatVonD translucent powder and I don't like it at all. I'm not a makeup expert but I feel that this brush wasn't the right brush for this particular use.

I bought this to use as a stippling brush for foundation, but it is way too soft. I'll use it for something else, but not for foundation
Angie from Alabama
It's too soft, it would take half the day to get your foundation set with it. I am now using it as a powder brush.

This brush leaves the brush hair all over your face. It's not very firm so more foundation ends up in the brush hairs than on your face. I was disappointed :(
Leslie from California
Not good for foundation.

This brush does not work for thick foundation, however for CC cream and or light liquids. It's magic. Definitely recommend!!!! This is my 2nd one.
Lexie from Kentucky
Such a soft brush! Love the way it blends out my foundation!
Mars from Vancouver, WA
Not sure if I'm supposed to use it with a liquid foundation, I use a Beauty Blender for that. I tried using this with the powder foundation from Too Faced and it basically destroys the surface of the packed powder without picking any up. This might be a good brush for loose powder, but I'm not willing to switch foundations to try it.

I used this for my powder bronzer based on a beauty YouTuber I saw using it and wow! It blends my bronzer so seamlessly and makes it look amazing! I haven't tried with foundation to be honest but I did buy a backup brush because I love it so much for my bronzer!

Foundation did not apply very well with this.
Bridgii from California
Soaked up all my liquid foundation. Bad for stippling. The reviews on the Morphe website said it was best for powder foundation, which I don't use so I will be returning this product.
Lauren from Connecticut
I love diffusing my Milk Matte cream bronzer with this duofiber brush. It blends the bronzer over my foundation so beautifully and makes my liquid blush look effortless, not too heavy. It might be too big for some people, Morphe does make a smaller one. I have a big head, ha!
Layla from WA STATE
This foundation brush cover's gr8, and spread's evenly. I haven't had any issue whatsoever with this brush absorbing too much of my foundation at all. And the price is good too! What more can you ask?
Gavn from Napa, CA
Would recommend another brush! This isn't it because it soaks up a lot of the foundation.
Aussie from Washington
The brush pulls my shape tape foundation and the too face foundation super easy. Seems to buff out perfect
