I really love the way this brush works. It is very soft and distributes the bronzer quite efficiently. On the other hand I found that the brush was too expensive.
This is a decent stippling brush. I do not understand why they call it a bronzing powder brush, unless they were referring to a very light dusting of bronzer. This brush will function as a foundation stippling brush, but it does give a very light coverage, and is nowhere near as dense as other stippling brushes, which will leave it streaky. It does take some practice, but this can work for foundation. I find this to work better for a very light dusting of powder or highlight, and more pigmented blushes, though even with 40% off, there are other stipple brushes that work much better.
If you are buying this expecting it to be a dupe of the MAC 187, please don't be fooled. This brush is HUGE and will not perform like the MAC brush. Also, the bristles are not as soft and since the bristles are big and long the brush will be all floppy and too large for your face. I did buy this, on sale at SDM, but I never use it and it just sits collecting dust. I hate this brush.
I bought this brush because I had been wanting a skunk brush for a really long time. It took me a few months to finally cave in and buy it because I had the $10 in Optimum Points, which only made the brush $15 with that money taken off, so I bought it. It is very comparable to the MAC 187, only cheaper. This was $25 at SDM, and the MAC 187 is $50 at MAC. I think it works great. It does initially shed when you thoroughly wash it, but not anything severe at all. This brush is extremely soft, not coarse, and since I have sensitive skin I need to have softer brushes. And it really does the job with liquid foundation and makes my skin look flawless. You don't only have to use this brush for bronzer. You can use it for loose powders, blush, bronzer, and liquid foundation. So it's very multi-purpose. All in all this brush is great. And I recommend it to everyone!
