    Great for Contouring

      • Highlighting & Contouring

      Comments about Japonesque Straight Foundation Brush:

      I used this brush primarily for contouring after application with contour stick because I felt it worked better to blend for contouring. I tried it with my liquid and powder foundation and found this brush to be a challenging to use with powder, but worked exceptionally well with liquid foundation. I liked the size of the brush and short bristles because I didn't feel like the liquid was being absorbed down into the bed of the brush needing more application. I received this product in exchange for a review.

      Comments about Japonesque Straight Foundation Brush:

      I use liquid foundation and typically use a sponge. The brush was very soft and I liked the size. It took a few applications to perfect the amount of foundation that I was using as this brush actually did a much better and more efficient job of applying my makeup. Once I figured out that I actually needed to use LESS foundation with this brush, I was thrilled! It did shed a little the first few uses but I haven't noticed any shedding since then so I think it was just the new brush.

        Comments about Japonesque Straight Foundation Brush:

        I LOVE this brush. I recently bought a different one from another retailer and was disappointed when I started using it because the bristles would shed on my face and I'd have to pick them off after applying my make up. I actually use this brush for my highlighting and contouring. It's a great tool for the cheeks! I will definitely be trying it out with my liquid foundation as well. Very soft and good quality for the price. Would highly recommend.

        Comments about Japonesque Straight Foundation Brush:

        I use a stippling brush and oval shaped makeup brush to apply my foundation. This makeup brush worked but it took me a while to get used to handling and control. I felt I used a little bit more product with this brush than with my usual round stippling brush, but not that much more. While I won't replace my 2 foundations brushes with this one, I found that this brush was so much better used as a contouring/bronzer brush especially if you use cream/crayon/liquid bronzer. Blended like a dream. *I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

          This brush is so nice! I normally apply my liquid foundation with my fingers, but applied with this brush and was really impressed with how flawless the application was. It provided even coverage and the brush was very soft. I didn't know I needed a brush like this, but I feel like I get better results with this brush than prior to using it.

            I routinely use a my fingers to apply liquid foundation but I was pleasantly surprised with how even my skin looked when using this brush. The coverage was even lighter than my previous application technique. I feel as though my makeup goes on smoother and more evenly than before. The bristles are really soft and the brush handle feels very high quality. I received this product in exchange for a review.

                I received this product in return for writing a review. I typically use a sponge to apply foundation, and will continue to still, but this was a great alternative. I was surprised how smoothly foundation went on, and the brush is super soft.

                  I love using this brush! It is perfect for applying my powder foundation! I also love using this brush to apply blush. Usually those brushes are longer, and would cause makeup to go everywhere but the length is perfect. I received this product in exchange for my review.

                    I usually use a my fingers and/or a small rounded foundation brush to apply liquid foundation but was pleasantly surprised with how even my skin looked when using this brush. The size took me a couple days to get used to and initially the coverage was a little heavier than I like, but once I figured out the right amount of product to use with it I definitely feel like my makeup goes on smoother and more evenly than before.
