first of all I use either my fingers or a beauty blender to apply most foundations/creams in general but I do use this brush for very specific applications. namely I use this every day to apply my cream bronzer on a few specific parts of my face, I like that it is VERY DENSE and it distributes the product very evenly and you can basically buff with same brush/no extra blending steps.
The beauty blender drinks up or removes some of my foundations, this brush is the one I use when I'm finding this is an issue. It's kind of a back-up plan, hah.
Tasha M. asked, “I've never used a brush before to apply my foundation. For 10 years I had used my fingers until I stumbled upon facebook within the last year and discovered the beauty blender. NOW I see a lot using this brush. Does it really work better then fingers/blender?”
I have small wrinkles around the corners of my eyes from decades of tugging (I know, I know). Some products tend to smear very quickly and leave a big mess that I can't quite remove entirely. How fast does this stuff set?
