in love...So nice...It's so soft and does a great job setting the face without the cakey effect!!...When I first got this brush it instantly reminded me of the Mr. Perfect Brush which I really obsessed over and have really wanted ever since it came out, but this brush is exactly like it.
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.

Love !...My fav...The tip of the wand is thin for a defined effect and the color is long lasting....This eyeliner went on thin, close to eyelashes, was REALLY easy to work with, did not smudge (it's not waterproof but if you use an eyeshadow brush you can create a smudge effect just fine), and I am really happy with it.
What it is:
An ultra-precise liquid eyeliner with a super-fine-tipped applicator.

What it does:
This long-wearing, highly pigmented eyeliner comes with an ultra-fine bristle brush for professional application. The rich black formula is perfect for creating dramatic, attention-demanding eyes or for executing any look you desire.

What else you need to know:
This product is not tested on animals.

It's ok...Love it...I think this brush has a sort of placebo effect on it's buyers....I gave it 4 stars although its a great foundation brush, this brush is very hard to clean and seems like it picks up a lot of product by the time I am finished my brush looks full.
What it is:
A versatile foundation brush for use with all formulations that creates a natural finish with high coverage.

What it does:
Shiseido's innovative technology and traditional Japanese brush-making techniques come together to create the ideal foundation finish. Perfect for liquid, cream, or powder foundations, this brush picks up all types of formulas for a uniform application and impeccable finish.

What else you need to know:
This foundation brush can create different types of coverage with the same foundation. Simply pat/press to give a full coverage look, brush in a half circle for medium coverage, and brush in long sweeps to add sheer coverage. Apply liquid or cream foundation in a circle to the cheeks using your fingers and use one of the brush application techniques to cover your face. When using compact foundation, just dab the brush lightly on the compact and apply starting on the cheeks.

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner.

In Love...Love it....I don't think its a miracle brush, but it does make applying my foundation and bronzer easier and the effect is very nice....You'll see that a good fan brush has very similar bristles to the Becca brush and let me tell you, this brush applies the highlight PERFECTLY!
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...5 stars...This lovely brush finally helps me achieve the effect that so many reviewers and bloggers rave about: it blurs imperfections and gives my skin a beautiful soft glow....Now, it may go on just as nicely with another brush, as the powder brush I was using may not have been dense enough, but I love this brush regardless!
What it is:
A densely packed, baby-soft powder brush.

What it does:
This densely packed brush is ideal for evenly dispersing Ambient Lighting Powder all over the face. It comes equipped with extra-soft, high-grade Taklon bristles and is packaged in a protective travel-pouch.

What else you need to know:
For best results, use Ambient Powder Brush to dust Ambient Lighting Powder all over the face.

nice brush....Love this brush...I still use a bigger brush to blend, but I love this brush for the initial application....This brush was designed to pick up the glimmer shades in her latest palette, and for that I think it is very good.
What it is:
A high performance, synthetic brush that’s specially designed for glimmer eyeshadow formulas.

Love !...It's ok...Elf has a $3 eyebrow brush that has a similar brush and includes a spoolie so I'm disappointed that for the price it doesn't have one but the brush and pomade are so good it almost makes up for it....I received this product free to test out by Influenster and a lot of times I don't like brow brushes because they're way to flimsy so you can't get those sharp defined lines but this brush is literally the best brush ever!
What it is:
A synthetic brow brush with a firm, angled edge designed for high-performance pomades.

What it does:
Designed for high-pigment pomades and creams, #70 Brow Brush features high-quality synthetic bristles, expertly cut at a bias just long enough to maintain precision, and short enough to enhance control. The shape is perfect for filling in sparse spots, drawing hair-like strokes, and carving out effortlessly bold arches.

Kat Von D’s Brow Collection empowers you to own whatever brow look you want with confidence—whether they’re soft and natural, crisp and defined, or a rainbow-bright work of art.

love it...The best...The clinique woman I talked to told me that this is the product I was looking for: It's great for giving me an even skin tone, but I am knocking off a star because it doesn't "luminize" the way she described...I ended up buying a TheBalm product to get the glow I was looking for....I highly recommend investing in a good-quality kabuki brush, though, since the complimentary brush is somewhat cheap and not as effective as it could be.

love it...it's OK...Although the first time I used it I brushed with the bristles down like a regular brush and didn't get all my waves but the second time I brushed my hair with bristles up with brush under my hair and it worked so much better....Of course I still had to go in with a straightener to get the roots flatter and get the pin straight look I was going for, but the brush alone will definitely do the trick!
