My fav!...So nice...Super soft bristles too....While it is meant to be used for the "Lock-It-Setting Powder", my sister has since stolen this product from me (as she absolutely loves the application and finish of the setting powder), I decided to use the brush in other ways to see how it applies to the skin.
What it is:
An ultimate loose powder brush for setting and perfecting the entire face.

What it does:
The Lock-It Setting Powder Brush was created after testing dozens of other loose powder brushes, in pursuit of the perfect tool to pair with Kat Von D’s groundbreaking Lock-It Setting Powder. Its distinctive silhouette features a perfectly rounded shape and long, tapered bristles—an artist's secret to efficient-yet-seamless, all-over setting. The fluffy density optimizes the dispersion of loose powder across the face, so you get a soft, diffused veil of powder with one effortless, even application.

Designed with superb-quality, its soft synthetic bristles are arranged in the ideal proportions to apply the finest loose powders—including the Lock-It Setting Powder—lightly and evenly to blur imperfections and smooth your skin's texture. The sleek, stiletto handle was inspired by a witch's broomstick, and its smooth, sturdy acrylic handles are weighted for an ergonomic grip and ultimate control.

What else you need to know:
"I am proud to say that Kat Von D Beauty products are never tested on animals—and never will be."—Kat Von D

In Love...The best...Great for the first year then started shedding...If you have extra time to put on makeup in the morning or evening, then this brush is definitely a wonderful tool to apply blush or bronzer; however, I feel it's awkward to use it for foundation.
What it is:
A true beauty multitasker, this patent-pending brush cuts makeup application time in half by replacing 10 other brushes and tools.

What it does:
From start to finish, primer to powder, The One Perfecting Brush can be used with liquids, creams, powders and anything in between. Non-porous, high-quality natural hair allows product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorbing, ensuring a seamless application with no wasted product. It can be used effectively as a foundation brush, powder brush, contour brush, bronzer brush, stipple brush, blush brush, fan brush, concealer brush, kabuki, or sponge.

The bristles are packed in a 3.5 inch horizontal design allowing you to effortlessly and evenly cover larger or smaller surface areas. The density of the brush creates a smooth, even, and airbrushed application every time, taking the guesswork out of brushwork. Flat edges fit the linear contours of your face, while curved corners allow for targeted, more precise application. Long, flexible bristles make a variety of application techniques possible including: targeted application, stippling, blending, contouring, and highlighting.

What else you need to know:
The bristles are free of dye, ensuring they will not lose shape or softness over time, and the unique shape of the handle and soft-touch finish provide complete control during application, allowing you to create your desired look. The bristles are reinforced with shed-resistant technology. However, the brush may lose strands during use. As with the hair on your head, this is completely natural and will lessen with use and proper care.
