YALMEH Foundation Brush is super soft and gentle to the touch. The brush has a nice long handle and is very simple to use and easy to get into the smaller areas on your face like the inner eye corners and nose creases. I've had it for a couple days now and I haven't noticed ANY lose hairs like my old foundation brushes did right away. Cleaning is a breeze, once it's dry, it's back to its usual soft self!

I received the brush over the holiday season and enjoyed testing and playing around with different products. I have a number of different types of foundations, and the brush worked with each one. I even tested it using my daily tinted BB cream, and it left my face with a flawless look. Normally I just apply the BB cream with my fingers and blend, but I always hated the feeling of the product on my fingers... the brush solved that problem.
The brush is intended for use with foundations, both liquid as well as powder based. My second favorite foundation to use is a mineral based foundation, that's in a loose powder form. The brush was perfectly made for this, as it spread it effortlessly across my face. The brush with the rounded, yet slightly pointy shaped head, makes for hard to reach areas a breeze... perfect for the nose area, to help blend the makeup product without over-caking.
I ended up using the foundation brush for the first time when I was getting ready for my New Years eve date with my partner. It made applying foundation much easier, quicker, and more even. It made my skin look flawless, without a lot of work. The quality of the brush is excellent for the price, and you never have to worry about getting a hair/bristle stuck to your skin during application... which is one of my pet peeves.

So, I was guilty of having the same plain Jane make up brush for the last...7 or 8 years (or longer).
I kept telling myself, "Self, this will do."
I was wrong.
Enter the Yalmeh Foundation Brush.
With respect to the materials - the handle is made out of a lightweight material (the site says wood...but I think it is high grade plastic), and the brush itself is SO soft.
It's like rubbing my old chinchilla on my face soft. Seriously!
I have used the brush with both powder and liquid foundations. Because of the shape of the tip, I'm able to actually get foundation into the nook of my nose and around my eyes with ease.
Powder also stays ON the brush and skin vs flying everywhere (aka into my eyes) in comparison with my old brush.
It's easy to clean after liquid foundation use - just a bit of soap and water to rinse it, and let it air dry.
It is still just as chinchilla soft after washing as it was prior to washing.
Doing make up at 5:30am most mornings, I drop things - drop proof items are a must! So, I did the drop test. And dropped it onto my ceramic floor about a dozen times. It didn't shatter, it didn't break, and it didn't chip.
This brush is also quite a nice size - it holds a fair amount of foundation on it and is easy to grip (no-slip handle).

Nice product. I Will recommend to my family and friends. I use it a lot.
I’ve been venturing more and more into makeup techniques and items that I haven’t used before. Being offered the opportunity to use the Yalmeh Foundation Brush was something I couldn’t pass up. Frankly, I had never even heard of a foundation brush that could be used with liquid foundation.
I use L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Light for my everyday foundation. It gives me lightweight coverage. When I want a more full coverage, flawless look, I use Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Sand. It hides more of the flaws on my face.
After applying the BB cream with my fingers (I just find it faster to do), I use the foundation brush to apply the liquid mousse foundation to soften the acne marks and uneven coloring. I found it really amazing to see some of the uneveness smoothed away with just a few swirls of the foundation brush.
This foundation brush is made with synthetic fibers and is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and has a 90-day money-back guarantee.
To care for your brush, wash with warm water, using your favorite shampoo, and rinse thoroughly. Let your brush air dry, preferably overnight, or use a hair dryer for quicker results.
This make up brush is awesome I use it fir applying my foundation rather than my hands.. It works great and doesn't leave any streaks. Nice thick handle for a easy grip and great control where your applying your foundation
