it's ok...Not bad!...Stiff fine bristles allow for precise application....I've thin, sparse brows so I need a small tight/stiff brush to apply aqua brow - if the brush is too loose or the hairs are splayed, then it makes a mess, so this brush has been working perfectly.

Love !...My fav...The brush isn't as stiff as the Artliner, but hey, at $12 I can deal....The only down side is I don't think a beginner would love this product bc of the brush tip, its is harder to apply if your not used to using a brush, other than that I love it!

wow !!!...not bad!...Nice and stiff but not a rock....I chose the Anastasia 15 brush over the Anastasia 12 brush even though brush 12 got better reviews, because I don't like double ended brushes (can't put them safely in my brush jar).
The optimal slant for precision brow shaping. Quality crafted from pure sable with a multi-lacquered wooden handle.

It's ok....Great Tool!...The brush is small and stiff which is fine for a small area like ur nose but if ur an oily girl like myself, doing ur forehead or any larger area with a tiny brush (like dime size) is just annoying and takes way longer....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.

Love !...In love...It is too stiff and doesn't apply or blend well at all....The blender brush is too thick to be e blender brush, the all over brush is just weird shaped, the contour brush is "ok" and the liner brush can't really be used as a liner per say but I would say that is is "ok" for more detailed applications.

Loving it...Love it!!...That isn't to say these are rock-hard stiff bristles....The "powder" brush doesn't cover a lot of surface area and is better for blush or bronzer, the "blush" brush will give you a streak that needs some blending (better for highlighter), and be careful with the eye brushes because they can kind of hurt!

love it...Love it!...However, I am very fair, and I have to ensure that I am very light handed with it because it can give my skin a brownish gray cast if I use too much... I definitely wouldn't say it's "invisible," but I would still recommend it as long as a light hand is used!...I purchased this quite a while ago, and I think I bought it because of the low price-it was $19 when I bought it- Good adherence, the tone was good I think, I bought invisible blend.

Love it...it's ok...I used the flawless coverage brush from BE but I never felt like it gave me that clear smooth looking complexion but the kabuki brush makes all the difference AND I still don't look like I am wearing any makeup!...I got this brush in a kit and although I don't use BE foundation, I use this brush for finishing powder or other mineral makeup and it works very well.

it's OK...love it...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....I have very stubborn curly hair and NEVER thought a straightening brush would tame it, but I read many positive reviews and thought id give this "one glide straightening brush" a try - I have to say I am extremely impressed.

The auto-shutoff feature means no power will be wasted when not in use. In addition, a temperature lock allows for uniform temperature control. An easy-grip, nine-foot, 360° swivel cord makes use and storage simple. The cord is made of heat-proof, up to 450°F (232°C), fabric and a professional hook.

no mess...Love it...I used this on my thin band lashes when I went to San Francisco and sat on the double decker bus through the golden gate bridge and I thought I would lose my lashes with the powerful wind; they did stay on, especially the inner corner lashes....I wear false eyelashes every so often (a couple of times per month), and I use this stuff every time ... the little brush is perfect, it is long lasting however, comes off when you want it to!

In Love...LOVE IT!...But this brush is definitely going to be my go-to brush that I will use when I am in a rush because it gives me the same result of using 5 other brushes, but saves me a lot of time and I don't even have to think about it....I purchased this brush over a year ago and I thought it was adequate at applying my foundation, but I didn't love it so I stored it away.
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.

my fav...In love...Then to do the highlighting for the more dramatic contour look I use my Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Gold which I take the brush that comes in the Stila bottle and dab some onto the stiffer end of my Tarte brush which I then dab onto my cheek bones and then use the angled end to blend....The only problem I have with this is that I find it too dense for the kind of contouring I like as I find it very hard to blend with.
