It's ok....Good brush...love that it fits into the powder compact....Clever idea, beautiful design and brush itself is soft and nice- however, you can see from picture that brush is intended to be in a shape larger than the casing itself, so when you try to put the lid on the brush you have to hold the brush head with your finger to fit them into the casing.

A magnetic, on-the-go blotting powder brush that conveniently attaches to the bottom of its touch-up partner, Invisimatte Blotting Powder, for an instant filter effect.

What it does:
Touch up with the ultimate on-the-go blotting powder brush. Custom-made to pair with Invisimatte Blotting Powder, the Portable Touch Up Brush has a retractable design and magnetic panel, so it snaps right in to the bottom of the powder compact. Slanted, soft synthetic bristles provide extra surface area for applying Invisimatte Blotting Powder—perfect for quick fixes and a mattifying, instant-filter effect.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

So nice...in love...It is compact though, so it feels like it pushes the powder in more instead of sweeping it off....This brush is great if you want a natural and soft look because although the brush is soft, it isn't dense enough for a "fuller-coverage" look with a setting powder.
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.

In Love...Love it!...And it is great quality, compact goat hair....I was lucky enough to have a Becca Rep give me a complete make-up lesson and she used this brush (of course); I was absolutely ASTOUNDED at how well is blended all the products she used, and my make-up looked completely flawless.
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.

BECCA is and will remain a cruelty-free company. They do not test their products on animals, and will continue to hold true to this principle.

love it...it's OK...I did have to go over the upper layer a few times after standing up, but it was great, and did the job, and yes, I was able to flip the brush and hold the hair against it for a few seconds to put a flip in my hair....For decades I have gone to stylist every week for a blow out because I could not deal with the hour ordeal of blowdrying and then using a flat iron, with a less than ideal result (the ends always looked like straw).
