Starting off, the price of this brush hits around 30 dollars and although I do not regret the purchase, I don’t see myself buying another one.
This brush is the new “it” piece for makeup lovers everywhere. The brush itself has a “well” in which you dispense foundation and it is meant to cover your face to perfection by using BareMinerals‘ new foundation BareSkin foundation serum. I could not bring myself to purchase the foundation with the brush, so I brought the brush itself and put it to the ultimate test – to use the brush with any liquid foundation.
I used the L’Oreal Lumi foundation with this brush and I also added a few drops of my Revlon Skinlights illuminator. I like to add a liquid highlight to my foundation anyway, but I really like it with this brush. That being said, the ability of combining the highlight and the foundation really is the best part of this brush. When you look at it, you’re paying 30 dollars for a brush that had a chunk of the bristles cut off in the center. AND like the much-coveted Beauty Blender, this item will most likely have dupes out in a few weeks. Not worth buying it right yet unless you want to use it with the serum foundation.
Pros: The size of the brush seemed to be lacking at first, but it is fantastic to blend out around the eyes and the temples – the size is perfect to get everywhere in the face.
The bristles are dense and although I haven’t washed my brush yet, the brush head seems sturdy.
Cons: If you like to do a heavy contour and highlight, this brush will not do a great job at blending over all of that work. The brush works great to apply foundation to a bare face and blend it, but does not help to blend stark lines.
