Question
Does this ever soak up a lot of product?
I use the Make Up For Ever Full Cover concealer, and since it's really expensive I don't really want a brush that'll just waste the product.

I always dab a bit of product onto the back of my hand rather than apply it directly to the brush or directly onto my face. The reason is two fold: First, you end up with less product and so you conserve what you have and also end up only using what looks totally natural for you. Secondly, the warmth of your body heat will soften up the formula of any concealer or makeup within just a few seconds, making it much easier to blend.

If you do this, you won't have to worry about the brush really soaking up too much product. I find that if you use a fairly creamy formula with this brush, it doesn't soak it up at all, in fact, it blends it much further and longer than if you used your fingers.

The trick with this one is to start in the corner of one eye and work your way out using very soft, circular strokes. It's probably the best investment you can make in your makeup kit.

I haven't had an issue with this brush soaking up to much product, however I mostly use cream concealers that come in tubs. If you use ones that are liquids that come in squeeze tubs you might consider putting it on the back of your hand first then dabbing into the product with the brush because any brush will soak up too much product.

This brush is also very good at blending out the concealer. Generally, I'll place the amount of concealer that I need directly onto the face or under eye area and use it to blend. In this instance, there wouldn't be much wastage of the product.

It does NOT soak up a lot of product at all. The bristles are non-porous and non-absorptive. You won't be sorry with this purchase. I will never buy any other kind of concealer brush. If you are for some reason unhappy with its performance, you can always return it-used or unused. Sephora is awesome about that. :)

I think it sucks up liquid product. Not as bad as you would expect from such a thick fluffy little brush, but I curently can't work and am extremely frugal, and would think you would agree once you try this brush.

You should be blending with this brush, not dipping it into the concealer.

Even though the brush looks like a small mop, the bristles clump together and work like a bunch of really small fine brushes all at once. It spreads the product far and probably holds on to the same amount as a flat concealer brush, which isn't too much at all.

No, it doesn't seem to. I put the concealer on the back of my hand in order to load the brush evenly -- a *tiny* dot -- then dab/swirl concealer on using just the tips of the bristles.

I also use Make Up Forever concealer. I just squirt a little on the back of my hand and dab the brush on the concealer, then to the eye area. Very little waste that way.

How do you use it?
I currently use Benefit's Erase Paste for undereye circles, should I apply the product to the area first and then use the brush to blend? Also, what is the best blending technique?

I use the same concealer! I dip my brush into the paste to pick up a small amount, then I swirl it in the lid to get rid of any excess and to warm it up slightly and also to get all the bristles covered. Then I tap a small amount under my eyes and blend using a circular motion. I set with by patting on some powder and it always looks flawless. Just remember not to use too mug as the erase paste can get really gloppy.

I use Benefit Erase Paste too and what I do is dab my brush into the pot lightly. You will find that you will only need a tiny bit. I made the mistake of using too much and having to blend a lot. A little goes a long way!

I would apply any kind of concealer to the back of my (clean!) hand first and let it warm up a bit for a few seconds just with my own body heat. Then I'd dip this brush into it and start using it in gentle, buffing strokes. Think wax on wax off! It's the key to getting that airbrushed finish look.

I tap the brush into my concealer first then stipple it onto my under eye, then blend it out. Doing it this way helps prevent me from getting too much product.

Be it jar concealer, stick concealer or those that come in a tube with a wand applicator, I place the concealer directly on to my under eye area or face and use the brush to blend.

Apply the product to the under eye area first and then blend using the concealer brush, in a circular motion with light pressure. This will give you a flawless and smooth finish. Do NOT sweep back and forth, this will push concealer into any fine lines. Don't forget to dab concealer on the inside corner of your eye, near the bridge of your nose.

Hi There,

I use this brush with the Laura Mercier secret concealer and all i do is VERY LIGHTLY dab this brush onto the concealer (it's a pot of cream) and dab the brush/product onto my dark under eye circles, then blend it in with horizontal strokes following the shape of my under eye. You just have to stroke it really lightly! I add multiple light layers to achieve desired coverage since it's a heavy cream concealer, then I set it by applying mineral setting powder over it (BareEscentuals Mineral Veil). Hope you love this brush like I do!

Ok--What you need to do is put just a tiny dab of your concealer on the top of your hand then dab the brush in it. Then you gently pat the bristles of the brush on whatever you want to cover (don't swipe--tap, tap, tap!). If necessary, blend with your fingers or even dab a little eye cream over the top with the brush before you set with powder (if necessary for you). You will LOVE this!

The easiest way for me to clean this brush and their HD face brush is by using my make up wipes that I purchase at my local pharmacy store. I take the brush and swirl it onto the wipe and you will see the residue come off. Afterwards I let it dry.

answer 2
I have oily skin too, so cleaning my brushes is important otherwise I start getting breakouts. I purchased a make-up brush cleanser; Sephora has some different kinds of products like that usually in the same area where the brushes are on display. Some of the products even have bacteria-fighting components to them, so you can choose what you think is best. Also, when cleaning your brushes make sure you keep the bristle part of the brush pointed down. I've been told that if the water gets up into the handle part the bristles will start falling out and your brush will be ruined. So, what I do is run warm water, put the brush cleanser in my palm, and swirl the brush around in the soup and water until the water coming off the brush is clean. Then, I gently squeeze the bristles to get any excess water out and lay it flat to dry. Voila! Clean brushes! Hope this helps.

I also use MUFE concealer, and I clean my brushes with a little bit of anti-bacterial hand soap once a week. I use a small glass bowl from my kitchen, put a drop of soap and a little water. Then I swirl the brush around, dump the water and repeat with water only until it comes out clear. This gets all my brushes nice and clean and soft.

I use Sephora's daily brush cleaner to spritz and gently clean my brushes at least every other day (I try for every day, but sometimes I don't have the extra two minutes in the morning). I wash my brushes with shampoo once a week, or once every other week at the absolute longest.
