I was skeptical when I first received this brush because all powder brushes I've ever owned had bristles at least one half times longer. But after using it a week or two, I find its what I like most about it. It's more compact and uses less powder than the other brushes I've used.
This is a fantastic brush for powder foundation. It is soft and dense and is slightly flat on the top which makes it perfect for dabbing powder on your face after foundation. I am very pleased with it as most every product I have purchased from Estée Lauder is top notch quality. I highly recommend this brush for powder foundation and light powdering after putting on liquid foundation.
Best For sheer blush, bronzer, cream foundation, powder foundation, setting/finishing powder, Blending
I'm a bit of a brush collector and this is one of my favorites! I've had this for just shy of a year and it's just as soft (maybe softer?) as day 1. It's great for applying sheer blushes, bronzer, and cream foundation as well, though you might notice some fibers shedding on your face if you do. It's not so great for liquid foundation in my experience, but it might work for you. Overall it's a great multitasking brush.
Love this brush application-wise, but it is far too much of a hassle to remove all of the bristles that fall out on your face when using a cream or liquid foundation. If the shedding were corrected, it would be an excellent brush!
An exceptional brush.. I've used many brushes from several brands and I've never gotten the quality and the usage that I have from this particular brush. It's similar to a kabuki brush in the way the bristles are packed tightly. Yet the shape makes blending and overall application seem effortless.. The awesome part is I have had this brush for at least 4 months and it is still as soft as the first day and still haven't had bristle fallout!!!! And that's saying something! Ladies this brush is worth the money! In my opinion you are paying for a brush that's going to last double to triple the time of any other brand at the same price or more. Your getting a super soft-cute-easy to maneuver (because of the sporty handle) no bristle fallout luxurious brush!! FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!!!!
Great quality brush. I use it to apply a translucent finishing powder. I do not use foundation powder. I was afraid at first that this brush may be too stiff just for applying finishing powder, but I was wrong. It's large enough to cover a large area of your face, but has tight bristles enabling you to get the powder right under the lash line without getting powder in your eyes. It really is a nice brush.
I purchased this brush along with my morther as it made the foundation go on so nicely. Since I started using it I have noticed that my foundation is full of little black brush hairs and I have them all over my face. A brush for this price point should be of a better quality.
I have had this brush well over a year and it looks and performs as well as the day I bought it... This brush is so soft and holds lots of powder for alot of coverage... I use it with the loose Doublewear and pressed Doublewear... It has never lost a bristle... I clean it all the time and it goes right back into shape... Honestly i use it as my only powder brush to set my liquid foundation... Dont even look at oters this is the diffrence maker when it comes to powder finish...
This is a fantastic brush. I use with the Re-Nutriv pressed powder and it is awesome. The right tools really do make all of the difference when applying make-up. Great soft, fluffy brush. Splurge a bit on yourself, you will be glad you did.
I was at the local mall here in PA. I happened to grab and use the E. Lauder P. F. Brush to test E. Lauder pressed facial powder compact. I couldn't believe the control I was getting. The brush handle is sporty and compact so it gives you great control. The loose or pressed powder seems to go all over the brush, yet stays on and does not come off until it is evenly applied to your face, I believe because the bristles are tightly compacted.( I could prefer even tighter for this cause, as in a really tight bristle, flat- blunted bronzer brush). This brush is great: worth the money, economical, high-quality gold color, great even color-I love Estee Lauder. Estee Lauder really has women in mind and is very 'girly' when designing products. I haven't been met with anything else at this time that is comparable to both E. Lauder quality and value.
I should've purchased this brush a year ago when I first saw it!. I LOVE IT! I have been in pursuit of the perfect powder brush and this is it gals! I even tried the Lan____ brush. This is by far better!
I bought this brush for my mineral foundation and I realized that it was great for liquid foundation as well. The price of this brush is really worth the quality and versatility. Very pleased!! Love, love, love EL brushes!
