How can you use it with so many different products at once? Don't they interfere with each other?
I don't understand how this can *replace* so many different brushes, and be used to apply foundation, blush, bronzer/contour, and Illuminator. Apply all those in one session with one brush? Wouldn't there be some mess, like blush going where it's not supposed to? And wouldn't you need to wash the brush after every use?
There's something very important that I am just not getting. Even if you reserved each side to a product, I just can't imagine it not causing some major "oopsies" and product mix-up.

on The One Perfecting Brush
I think the honest answer is that it DOES transfer color....but not every color. For instance, I can use this with a liquid primer and the bristles remain virtually clean enough for me to then apply bronzer or translucent setting powder. But if I try to add blush into the mix, it does get muddied up by all the rest of the products. I do really like this brush, but to say it doesn't absorb products isn't an entirely accurate depiction of how this brush performs in every day life, at least not in my opinion. That said, I use it a lot and it washes and dries beautifully (and quickly.)

the products sort of sit on top of the bristles and all of it gets on your face. if you were to rub the brush on a towel after applying say, your foundation, youd hardly get any product off onto the towel

It's made of goat hair so the idea is that the hairs pick up color from the pan then fully deposit it on your face, and color doesn't get stuck on the bristles. I returned mine before using it, though, so can't say if it's true or not
The bristles just don't "absorb" the products into them. After applying my tinted moisturizer, I have used this with powders (both loose and pressed) then on to powder bronzer, powder blush, and both powder and liquid highlighters. I just wipe the brush over a tissue softly between each product and it goes on to the next product without spoiling any of your makeup. Hard to believe but true.
One of the wonderful characteristics of this brush is the high quality, natural goat hair, which allows the product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorbing into the base. Product is then distributed evenly and completely onto the face. Though some pigment may be left on the tips of the brush, the product itself is not! Because of this, you can use multiple, different types of products right after each other, more quickly and efficiently than using numerous brushes!
I felt the same way and honestly, I only used this brush for contour/bronzer at first because I didn't know if it would even work for anything else due to its size.
However, I went from liquid foundation to powder foundation to contour and bronzer without cleaning in between and it was FLAWLESS application. I spot clean day to day if I do use it that way just because I don't want product build up in my brushes, but you really can go from product to product - just make sure you end with your blush (if you use it for blush) and apply in order (primer, foundation, powder, contour, highlight, blush).
I personally haven't used it for blush (yet) but I love it for foundation (liquid), powder (pressed) and contour/bronzer - even powder highlighter application.
This brush makes a lot of claims and I was super skeptical but it is truly a stand-out amazing brush.
