I purchased this legendary brush after I had bought a foundation that dries so fast on my skin, it doesn't allow me to evenly spread it. It was almost impossible to avoid nasty colorful spots, but I kind of liked the foundation for its color, texture and all, so I didn't give up and tried to find for a solution - this is how I got my deeply loved stippling brush. With the help of this gorgeous brush I am now able to tame any creamy makeup product that I use - from liquid foundations to heavy and capricious Asian bb-creams. I also use it for a blush that likes to give the attitude whenever I try to apply it with my fingertips. Now, there is hardly anything this brush can't help you with. Just don't forget to use it pressing in circular motions rather than largely spreading your foundation with it, this is how I get the best results.
I love this brush until it is washed. It just falls apart after a few washes. As a professional makeup artist I have to clean brushes regularly and I have gone through 2 of these brushes in 3 weeks :( it's not my cleaning solution or methos as it's not happening to any other brushes. Gutted as love the finish this brush gives.
I love this brush! So much so that a week later I bought a second one just in case I ever lost / misplaced the first one. Like the flat top handle which allows the brush to stand upright. I use this brush to apply my liquid/mousse foundations by stippling the product on to my face and then swirling and buffing it into my skin. I find that I use less product when I apply foundation with this brush versus using my fingers plus I don't end up with stained fingers :o) The brush provides a flawless and air brushed finish to my skin. This brush applies cream blush like a dream, creating a diffused effect around the edges of the blush where it blends seamlessly into my skin/foundation with no visible edges. It can also be used to apply other cream products such as bronzers and highlighters. The bristles are very soft and product doesn't build up and clog the bristles at all. I've washed this brush numerous times and it hasn't shed at all or lost its shape. The brush head is't too big which means its great for the natural contours of the face such as around the nose. Would definitely recommend it! GlisteningSheen xxx For a detailed review and photos checkout: http://glisteningsheen.blogspot.sg/2013/10/stipple-save.html
Just purchased this brush at Ulta, trying out a fuller coverage foundation and heard great thingsabout this brush. The bristles felt nice and soft on my hand and it was comfortable to hold. The second I got home and tried it on my face, I knew I would never use it again. The bristles are HARD !! It almost felt like it was exfoliating my face while I was buffing in my foundation, creating reddness, that required more fondation to cover... Bottom line, this is why this brush is 10$ ...
This is a brilliant brush!! If you don't want to have many things in your make up bag, this is one of those must-have essentials (believe it or not). I never used a brush before because I thought that it's enough to apply foundation and occasionally even blush with fingers... this brush makes so much difference, I can't believe it! My skin is dewy and perfect, actually. And it's not generally perfect with no foundation on, if you know what I mean. From now on, I will only apply with fingers if I'm in a rush. FYI I do use a primer and/or moisturiser before applying foundation, which I also apply with the brush. Some previous reviewers complained that the brush absorbs too much product - try just dipping it in, don't attempt to 'scoop' all the foundation at once with it.
