I bought this brush with the new complexion rescue tinted gel creme (which is amazing) and i was let down by the results. the fine white fibers at the top ted to clump together creating uneaven aplication and the brush itself is very dificult to clean because if its dense, compact nature....I have had it for a month and only felt the need to wash it once already because I use an oil based face cream and it tends to make my brush sticky and can transfer oil to the compacts i use.

What it is:
A dual-fiber synthetic brush for applying foundation or tinted moisturizer.


You’d be better off buying two separate but higher quality brushes then trying to save with this dual brush. ...I bought another brush and that's when I realized it was intentional.

What it is: A super-dense, dual-ended brush that does the work for you to apply concealer to large and small areas of your face.

What Else You Need to Know: This two-in-one concealer brush is designed to reach every corner of your face. While the flat and tapered end effortlessly smooths concealer under your eyes, around your nose, and other hard-to-reach areas, the round and fluffy end buffs away the look of imperfections for your most airbrushed finish.


I clean the bristles with a brush cleaner and do not have any problems. ...So easy to hold, very natural and comfortable the way it sits in your hand, super soft bristles, feels solid, and does what it promises - I get such a natural looking finish with way less effort than other brushes or a Beauty Blender. It’s nice and compact.

What it is:
A foundation-smoothing brush by Dior that offers maximum application control.

What it does:
Designed by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, the Dior Backstage Buffing Brush combines the smoothing power of a brush with the blending power of a sponge. The ergonomic shape allows for maximum control, while lush, dense bristles leave skin with an even, airbrushed finish in as little as a single sweep.


Super compact multitasker....I haven't noticed any colour bleeding from the brush end....I love that its kind of short and compact so you can bring it with you on the go

What it is:
A double-ended tool with a gel tip that mimics the effect of fingertips, and a diamond-shaped brush built for blending.

What it does:
This product is perfect for anyone who wants seamless, versatile blending for powder or fluid makeup. A gel-tip blender on one side of this tool mimics the effect of fingertips without absorbing product like a traditional sponge. Hygienic and easy to wipe clean, this applicator adapts to the contours of the face to build optimal coverage.

The red, diamond-shaped, synthetic brush head looks and feels fluffy but contains a large amount of dense fibers at its core to maintain the tool’s shape and provide the perfect balance of strength and flexibility.


Great Brush...Compact for travel - apply foundation directly to brush and buff!! ...The brush itself was compact and worked well for me, BUT I only got to use it three times before the bristles disconnected from the base.

What it is: A soft, retractable, flat-top brush, designed specially to pair with L’Essentiel Foundation (sold separately) for a smooth, even, and flawless complexion.

What Else You Need to Know: The innovative design of this synthetic fiber brush features a retractable sleeve to protect the bristles, making it ideal for everyday use, travel, and touch ups. The brush is designed to work in hard-to-reach areas, like the under-eye, while leaving a streak-free, flawless finish.


small, compact & easy for travel!...Which it does evenly without intense product strokes left on the brace by the brush fibers. The fibers of the brush are soft and durable. ...Best brush for mineral powder foundation!...Although i prefer a smaller buffing brush since I have a small face, I don't find this brush to be too large in size.

What it is: A four-petal face brush that is uniquely-designed to contour to face and buff skin to a polished finish.

What Else You Need to Know: Inspired by the Shiseido camellia, this uniquely-designed brush features four distinct petal sections with hidden core technology. This brush helps control pressure for a smooth and seamless makeup application, and was developed to be used with all makeup textures.


The best foundation brush, period!...They are a little bit expensive but for this quality I find them worth it. This brush is my favorite so far and not just from this brand but of all the makeup brushes I've ever used, seriously. ...I wish I could rate this brush 6/5. I tried brush after brush, my beauty blender, my fingers and my foundation always looked cakey, even after I tried different ones.

What it is: A small, soft, angled makeup brush that delivers an even, streak-free foundation application.

What Else You Need to Know: This compact foundation brush has soft, dense fibers to help build coverage and create a smooth, flawless complexion. Made for liquid foundation formulas, its angled oval shape delivers a seamless finish while easily reaching the contours of the face for an even foundation application.

After five years in development with makeup artists and fiber experts, MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Brushes are a revolution in brush craftsmanship. The 100 percent fiber brushes are available in a large range of handcrafted styles, each with the perfect balance of straight and wavy fibers that replicate natural hairs.


This brush is TINY! If you want something small with short and dense bristles, this brush is for you! ...Compact and ultra soft....Very soft, super compact. Does the job well. I haven't had it long so I'm not sure how it holds up after it's cleaned.

What it is: A unique foundation brush that evenly buffs makeup onto skin, achieving a light but buildable coverage.

What Else You Need to Know: This brush‘s circular head and dense bristles help you apply makeup and create a flawless-looking complexion. It‘s made with soft, synthetic, vegan bristles and without plastics or metals. Its small silicone handle also reduces waste. This brush works best with liquid and cream formulas and pairs perfectly with Sephora Collection‘s Clean Glowing Skin Foundation (sold separately).


The price for essentially 2 face brushes is very good. This brush works very well with Refy cream products and I use the smaller end with all my cream blushes now. ...Cute brush. I never buy brushes with makeup drops as I really love the Milk x Sephora Collection from a couple years ago.

Brush Coverage: Buildable

Brush Handle Length:
4.72 in

What Else You Need to Know: The bronzer brush is a mix of two bristles. The white stippling bristles ensure an easy, streak-free application and natural finish.
