Better than Beauty Blender?
I love the beauty blender sponge with my Naked foundation, but would like something that fills in scarring a little better. Sometimes the BB seems to make my make up "sit" on my skin, like the make up skips them, or doesn't fill them in, even with primer. I other wise love the look the BB gives, but would the Karma brush be better for what i need to achieve?

on Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush
I wouldn't have thought any brush could replace my beauty blender. But after using this brush for about a month, I love it and have not gone back to my blender since. I use the Nars Tinted Moisturizer, the brush gives me a flawless, smooth finish. Instead of my makeup sitting on my face it is blends in very nicely that I don't even look like I have makeup on. I don't think you would be disappointed in adding this to your beauty arsenal.

i use the brush for everything: concealer, foundation, bb cream and it works great for me. i dont think it really matters unless the formula is really different.

I tried this brush, returned it, and went right back to my BBlender. Nothing beats the blender

I think blending it in with the brush would be better than the sponge, even if it isn't this one exactly (the sponge is also trying to absorb the make-up, so it doesn't always reach where you want or give desired results as far as getting the make-up worked in right). I love this brush, though, and I would highly recommend it if you are making the switch from sponge to brush!
I have quite a bit of scaring from old acne and I can honestly say that this brush makes a difference. I've applied the urban decay naked foundation with my fingers, a regular foundation brush, and this good karma optical blurring brush- the blurring brush is hands down the best application method. If you stipple it on and then buff it in (small circular motions) it seems to get right into your skin instead of sitting on top. I've honestly described to my friends the exact question you asked just a few days ago! My only advise would be that if you have any dry/flaky patches try and exfoliate (really well) and moisturize before applying your foundation- It makes a huge difference for me.
I also used the BB for my Naked foundation in the past, until I finally gave in and bought the Blurring Brush. The Foundation goes on better! I know exactly what you mean by foundation sitting on your skin instead of filling it in with the BB. My experience with the brush is that this does not or minimal occur. Hope this helps

Not sure that it would be better, but I do know from personal experience that this brush is capable of giving an airbrushed appearance. As much as I ADORE my beauty blender, I still use this occasionally in a light, circular motion. With regard to my slight facial scar, believe it or not,after doing my entire face, I go back and use a mere dot of Urban Decay's concealer pencil and my finger...lightly tapping my fingertip to blend it ..and that works best for my scar/discoloration. It is the only thing I use a stick concealer for and so it's lasted me forever. The thick, creamy texture and spot application seem to be key for me. Hope that helps.
