It's ok...Love it...However, for beginners looking for their first foundation brush, I recommend trying a traditional flat foundation brush, for this one takes a little time to really use it well....I removed one star for the fact I am forced to use more foundation with the brush than I normally do, so in turn this won't be used every day, instead only on days when I want more coverage.
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.

Love it...in love...Great beginner brush...I've had this brush for a while now, I purchased it when one of the sephora make up artists tried a foundation (make up forever face & body liquid make up) on me and I loved how it looked, I notice though you have to barely touch your face with this brush because if you use too much pressure the bristles kind of just bend to the side or split in the middle and it looses its shape but over all I think this is a very good brush
