Rated 3 out of 5 by Rachel99 good but not perfect
certain ud brushes are good because they are stiff (i.e. the lining brush, the general eyeshadow application one, the lip one) but a blending brush simply needs to be softer. i don't think these are good at blending well. however, if you like really sharp dramatic makeup, you might prefer this. it will definitely soften the edges of your shadow but might not give a finish that is wearable; the shadows might look flawless yet harsh because there won't be a good gradient. now, if you spend enough time and energy, the brushes will work well. however, that's pretty average because take just about any brush and with the time and effort, you can get there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackleather Love this brush!
The first time I used this brush I fell in love with it! It did exactly what I wanted it to do which was to blend and to soften lines. This brush does it perfectly and with ease. I am a middle aged woman and need to be careful with eyeshadowing as I do not want harsh lines that may accent any crepey skin. This brush does a marvelous job for me. I love the Good Karma line of brushes And hope to get them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by violetpretty Use for highlighting or blending
I love all of UD's Good Karma brushes. They are always the first place I look when in the market for a new brush. The synthetic taklon is superior to natural hair for several reasons:
1. It's cruelty free.
2. Easier to clean because it's non porous.
3. Easier to control the amount of product because it's non porous.
4. It's softer because the fibers come to a point, unlike natural hairs which are cut to the needed length.
5. They last longer.
I have large brow bones/slightly hooded eyes, so a brush like this is a godesend for applying highlight colors quickly, such as Sellout, a favorite. It also softens the lines between shadows for a beautifully blended look. I don't remember what I did before I had this brush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeneticallymodified Nobody gets hurt, and everybody looks smokin' hot- thanks again to UD!
This is a really great-looking cruelty-free product, that out-performs other brands, while simultaneously beating them on both price and quality- which is something Urban Decay seems to manage to do pretty much all around.
The brush picks up colour really well, enables you to put it down and move it around just right -without flicking it all over the place and giving yourself purple freckled cheeks (which was my specialty before I discovered the awesomeness that is UD).
The balance of firmness in the bristles on this brush, combined with their flexibility and silky-soft texture, plus a great size and shape to the brush and handle, means you get what you want, exactly where you want it, just how you like it. It gets things done as quick as a flash, without any hassle, and never lets you down.
What more could a girl ask for? :P

This blush is fabulous. I use it to blend like it is supposed to be used for and it is just flawless. It doesnt shed and is the SOFTEST BRUSH EVER (take that MAC!) I love the fact that these brushes are vegan and I will continue to use this brush to blend shadow and create perfect soft edges. I am looking into the whole other collection of Good Karma brushes and I will purchase them all! ( I already have 3!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoyJoy All you need!
I have 3 of these brushes, and first off, they're not all exactly alike. Two are a little softer, and the bristles are slightly different lengths. But they all accomplish the same task, so here we go!
I use one for highlighting, and it's awesome. I use the second one for sweeping colors across the lid, and it's always a perfect wash of color. The third I use with darker colors. I just dab the tip in my color, then place it in my crease, and start the windshield wiper motion we're all familiar with. I find this gives me a PERFECT natural crease. Top it all off with a cat eye and you're good to go!
It's also nice to keep my highlighter one handy for blending. I don't think any of the brushes are "too stiff," and find they're excellent, multitasking eye brushes.
I've had these over a year, and there's been no shedding, or anything other than the lettering slightly wearing off to show how old they are.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cath21 Your Average Brush
This Good Karma brush is just your average, everyday eyeshadow brush. I only wish the brush were softer and more plush, because the brush is a little too stiff and harsh on my skin for me to use with 100% ease and comfort. This brush is also definitely on the pricey side, and isn't really worth it since shadows do not look much different when blended with a finger when compared to using the brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WitchHazel Does exactly what it says on the tin
I bought this brush to use alongside the Good Karma eyeshadow brush, and I've been really pleased with the looks I've been able to create with them. This brush blends better than anything I've used before, and is super soft and a pleasure to use. I recently did my friend's make up for her before a night out and she commented on how nice the brushes feel against your skin when you used them. 10/10
