I bought two of these (one as a back up incase of a handle break) specifically to use for face masks. I pretty much already knew this brush wouldn't have the good, stiff properties that foundation brushes should have (hence the B and not an A), so I didn't even go there when it came to using this for foundation. However, this is an AWESOME tool for applying face masks. I get a much more even application all over my face, and I can get into all of the nooks and cranny's way better than if I just used my fingers. It also keeps your hands clean of the mask... I just squeeze it from the tube onto the brush, and repeat that as I go along my face. I wash the brush with soap when I'm done, put it in a spare slot in my toothbrush holder and I'm good to go until next time.

I don't really use this brush for foundation but for concealer. It has that perfect shape that allows you to get underneath your eyes and it distributes the product very well.

I like this brush but not for foundation. When applying liquid foundation with this it leaves my face streaky. But I do use it to pack on setting powder when baking my face and it works great for that.

I bought a set of brushes and this was one of the brushes in the set. I personally do not like the elf brushes. They are not nice on the skin and the application is mediocre.

Absolutely love this soft brush! I bought this brush from Walmart for an “emergency” and absolutely love it! The bristles are soft and blend smoothly. I use it 1-3 times a month. Highly recommend it!

It has a great size and price. I bought it at Walmart and I was only going to use it for a facial lol but I ended loving it and I used it usually for my cream concealer. This brush is really useful.

This product is pretty much only useful to apply foundation but not very good for blending, which is why I switch to a beauty sponge to do the blending. It’s a decent brush for it’s price since it is not expensive at all.

I really don't grab this brush much anymore. It applies my MAC foundation very streaky. All my other ELF brushes work just fine but this one isn't the best for foundation.

It’s okay, kinda streak, I prefer using a beauty blender. My skin isn’t dry or oily, it’s “normal” and I feel like my foundation gets streaky with this brush. I bought it online on elf website

This foundation brush is great!! It doesn't soak up much of the product and is a great applicator. I use the foundation brush almost every day depending on when I am wearing foundation. I also use a beauty sponge after the foundation brush to get rid of brush marks.
