As with all the Illamasqua brushes, I am obsessed. The flat foundation brush is a staple of any brands brush line, and from a purely design viewpoint Illamasqua have translated this into a gorgeous, gothic and ergonomical design. In terms of practical use it is easily the best flat brush I have ever owned. Perfect for a full coverage application of foundation/any liquid makeup, or for evenly distributing a primer product across the face. All of Illamasqua's products are cruelty free too, and at no point does there feel that a sacrifice in quality has come of this, rather the synthetic bristles glide across the face, and are easy to clean too! Again there is a high price point, as there is with every Illamasqua brush, but it is better to consider these as both tools, and as pieces of art. Nowhere is the Gothic influence of 1920s Germany better felt than here.
