I had never used a foundation brush before purchasing the optical blurring brush from UD, so I really didn't know if it was worth $30. I have been using the Naked Skin foundation since it came out and applying it with a makeup sponge, like I usually do with liquid foundation. Needless to say, this brush was worth the money! I loved the foundation when I was applying it with a makeup sponge, but you really don't get the full effect unless you use the brush! My skin looks flawless (it definitely isn't in real life) in every picture I have seen of myself since I started using the brush. Bottom line- invest in it!!

So this is where the rubber meets the road folks. I did not receive any advice on how to use this brush, just what I read here on the site. I still put on my foundation by hand and then I wash my hands. I then use this brush to blend/blur in the foundation. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
I honestly have never liked foundation. I have just started using it since I have hit that dreadful age that I now need it (cough, cough), thanks Karma. lol But one drop of UD foundation and then using the Good Karma brush and it just transforms my face into a well polished finish that looks so nice! I am so happy with my purchase. My mom just bought her brush and foundation now too. We are ADDICTS!!!!

I've used a high quality flat foundation brush for years and wanted to try one of these types of rounder/fluffier types and see if it makes a difference- chose this one because it is small enough that it is not going to just soak up all the liquid, and I am very glad I did!
It actually applied faster and without streaking, made a big difference in application. The buffing technique is quicker and easier than "painting" it on.
It is not too soft and not too firm, not too big or too small- it is just right. I am very happy with it, works great with the Naked foundation. Applies powder and cream well too, gives good coverage. Price is nice too, a great value for the quality you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamfromWA Perfect for Naked Skin Foundation
The product description for this brush says it was designed specifically to work with the Naked Skin Foundation line, and I'll admit, I was skeptical when I purchased the brush. With first use I found myself pleasantly surprised - the description had to have been right. This brush blends the Naked Skin foundation flawlessly, and it holds onto and releases the product so perfectly, it blew my previous foundation brush out of the water. The Good Karma brush is easy to clean with your favorite brush shampoo, and if you clean it about once a week, you'll get a perfect foundation application every time.

I own many nice makeup brushes and they are pretty and all, but I never really thought they were worth the hype and money. That was before i had such a dramatic improvement in my makeup from a tool. I finally get it!
This really does make my Naked makeup look amazing. I liked the Naked foundation, but it would always exaggerate the pores on my nose so I never wore it. This completely solved that and now my makeup looks totally natural and undetectable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PibbKitty You NEED this brush
Prior to buying this brush, I was using a very popular, inexpensive foundation brush. It wasn't bad for the couple dollar price, but after using this Good Karma brush with my foundation, I won't use anything else! All the reviews are true--your foundation will go on so much better, like a soft-focus blur. It perfectly blends your foundation and blurs out any flaws or lines or uneven skintone. You just have to try it--if you think your foundation looks good now...wait until you use this! Seriously! Not to mention, the bristles are so soft, yet the brush is firm and great quality. Worth the splurge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by youcanbreathe Foundation essential!
I finally was able to get my hands on this brush after having UD Naked liquid foundation since it was released. I don't know how I was applying the foundation before owning this. I previously was using a foundation brush, but it was not circular nor were the bristles as soft. This brush really does make my foundation look airbrushed. It is soft, flexible, and completely worth the money. I will not apply my foundation with anything else from now on. It works for any foundation, but it is definitely a must have if you're using the Naked liquid foundation! It will make your skin look flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel327 ONLY FOUNDATION BRUSH I LOVE
Let me start by saying that I just reviewed Naked Skin as the only foundation I love...because it is. And let me also say that I have never had any luck with foundation brushes - they always make me look streaky, so I tend to use a sponge or my fingers. But, I trust UD so I took the chance.
I've never used a foundation brush that so perfectly applied my foundation! It's soft and it really just applies the foundation perfectly. It doesn't dry the foundation up and drag it around, it simply applies the foundation evenly.
This brush and Naked Skin are the biggest dream team in cosmetics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amberenae725 Perfect brush!!
Personally, I love using this brush for my face powder. Most powder brushes are huge with loose bristles that cause the powder to create a little "snow storm" in my bathroom!! However, this one is packed with the bristles just tight enough to give perfect coverage, not create Christmas in Spring (lol!), and it feels sooooo soft on my skin! I plan on buying several of these, because they're perfect for powder, foundation, blush, etc. Altogether- this brush is AMAZING!!!! You will so not regret buying this!! And NO animals were harmed, which is a huge deal to me! Thanks UD for another amazing product :) Also- you guys should totally put together a brush set!!! Thumbs up if you fellow UD junkies agree!!! :D

I felt a bit bad buying this brush because I didn't need it but the reviews were so awesome and the sale price hard to resist. I am SO glad I bought it and now realize how much I DID need it! This brush puts my tarte airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush to shame!!!! The size is so much better and can fit nicely around my eyes--now making it possible for me to do my foundation after my eyeshadow. And it is much softer and actually applies all of my foundation to my face (rather than soaking up a good portion of my foundation in its bristles). So glad I purchased this brush!!!

I bought this brush about 3 months ago, and have been using it almost daily since. This brush has completely changed the way I apply foundation. I used to use sponges and would always have some kind of streaking effect (particularly around my nose and mouth), but with this brush, streaks are a thing of the past. I use less product, and what I do use goes farther than it ever did with a sponge. Absolutely no weird blending issues along the jawline. Totally even and complete coverage every time, with minimal effort. This brush will be a permanent part of my makeup routine, and I'm so glad I found it. It's a little on the expensive side, but you definitely get what you pay for, here. Worth every single penny. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by tomoyopop Dependable Mainstay
I really like this brush. I squirt a couple dots of foundation onto the brush and apply them onto my face in medium-sized circular motions. The effect is very natural and not patchy or streaky at all. The size is just perfect for my small hands as well. (Probably half an inch in diameter, 5" in length.) The bristles are very comfortable despite being stiff (foundation brushes need to be stiffer).
A con would be the weight - everything (except the bristles of course) is metal and so it's quite heavy; it wouldn't make the best travel-friendly foundation brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ViolettaMUA Best Brush I Own
Once upon a time I was in Macy's shopping my life away (not like that doesn't happen often or anything... ..) and I spotted the Naked line so I thought I'd bite. The sales girl used this brush to apply my foundation and I nearly ripped it out of her hands to see what it was. I bought two right off the bat. This brush has changed my life. I've used this on clients and every time I do they're amazed at how beautiful their foundation looks..it's like Photoshop at the tip of your fingers. I've retired my crazy expensive airbrush machine in favor of the Naked foundation, the Beauty Balm, and this brush. When people stop and ask what I use for my skin I gush about all these products...and if you get them you will too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ulliellax The only face brush you will ever need
This was the first foundation brush I ever bought (got it with naked foundation) and I would like to thank UD for making finding the perfect foundation and brush SO easy!!!! I'm new to using foundation and I already feel like a pro using this optical blurring brush. The finished look is flawless and airbrushed looking, very natural. No streaks no creases! Evenly blends out everything, what more could a girl ask for? After trying this brush with their foundation, I don't have to bother trying any other products or brands cuz I have found the ONE! This is my holy grail!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Breezay Best money i ever spent
I love this brush. I have tired several different foundation brushes and this by far is the best one. It feels great in my had. Had a good weight to it. helps me apply the product more easily. It also covers well. i get a very light.natural looking coverage and feel even if i am using a full coverage foundations. Leaves my skin looking flawless. I will say that I get a little bit of fall out from the hairs but not much at all. maybe one or two every once in a while. But for 20 something bucks what can you expect. this brush is also easy to clean and feels like new even after several washes. The bristles are firm yet soft and dense. I also don't feel that it eats my foundation. a little dab goes a long way with this brush.

I was really hesitant about spending so much money on "just a brush". I mean, a brush is a brush is a brush, right? WRONG! After reading some fantastic reviews, I decided to break down and buy it, because it sounded like it did exactly what I needed and it does! I love this thing and I use it everytime I put on makeup, whether I'm just spot checking or doing my full face club makeup. It does exactly what the name implies, it blends everything into a smooth silky finish, giving you that perfectly airbrushed looked. Who knew a little ol' brush could do so much?!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dpnsubs First experience with an UD brush
This was my very first experience with using an urban decay makeup brush and I decided to try something different from my standards, my beauty blender and my IT foundation brush. It initially took a while to get used to as it does not cover that much surface area and requires a very light hand to apply but I noted that the application was flawless, smooth, and didn't soak up a lot of foundation into the bristles! it did take a while to get use to but I'd say this is probably a close tie with my beauty blender for flawless liquid foundation application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherry52 Fantastic brush!
I purchased this a while ago and have used it for liquid foundation and BB/CC creams and it's a dream to work with! I normally have oily skin but went through a phase of dry skin and it was a wonder how well this applied the product, without making it look patchy or dry (to an extent that even a sponge couldn't). I'm truly amazed at the quality. I've also had it for a while and the brush has not shed in any way. It's clearly apparent that UD used great quality material in creating this brush and it's a steal at the price it's at currently!

being a makeup artist, you need a large brush arsenal. so i have bought and used all kinds of foundation brushes. brushes that i could simply pick up at target and brushes of the more high end brands. i must say. this foundation brush has moved all my other brushes to second string. i loooove the application of foundation this brush provides. a lot of brushes say they deliver air brushed results and when used has left me wanting, but this brush TRULY delivers! i also like to use it as a bronzing/contouring brush. application is flawless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaBelle621 LOVE IT! but it sheds..
I absolutely love this brush! I use it with the naked foundation and my bare minerals. It works amazingly, it takes no effort to blend in any type of foundation and it blends it in EVENLY which is the great part. It's so soft and smooth.... It's a great quality brush, but it sheds..... It would be amazing if there was a way to make it a retractable brush or make a little bit better packaging since if you try to put the brush back in the cylinder it came in, the bristles tend to spread if you put the cap back on.
Would HIGHLY recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Megalynn Amazing foundation brush!
I was looking for a new brush to blend my liquid foundation. I was tired of how much my old brush would shed and I would end up with bristles all over my face. I had only ever used UD eyeshadow brushes so I took a chance on this brush and was so glad I did! I've had this brush for 4 or 5 months and it hasn't shed a single bristle! Great quality and blends my foundation flawlessly. Make sure to clean it, some foundation may clump up but once you clean it it goes back to looking/working like new! Definitely recommend this brush!

This brush is my favourite brush ever when it comes to foundation. I use this with my cream foundation and tinted moisturizer, and with some swirling of the brush, it creates an even finish with not a single streak in sight.
This brush is different from other stippling or foundation brushes because the bristles hold more shape, and it extends the life of your product because less of it gets stuck in between the bristles. I also love the heavy handle- it feels and works like a high quality brush for about half the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kels90 Love it!
I love this brush. First off, every brush I have ever used for foundation sees to get messy/clumpy and constantly needs cleaning, but not this brush. I have used it for liquid, cream and power foundations and it works well with all of them. It applies my liquid and cream foundations smooth and constantly with little effort and my skin looks flawless even without concealer. I constantly get asked what foundation I use and get complimented on my skin and it is all because of this brush. For the price, the payoff is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by IVUDADDICT Soft and Strong better than MAC
I generally use a MAC duo fiber brush to apply my foundation but I was not happy with the brush shedding when I applied my liquid foundation or with the shedding when I waned my
Brush. I order this brush to try something different but was a bit hesitant since UD is known more
For their highly pigmented products than their brushes and I could not have been more wrong! This brush is perfect for applying and blending out high coverage foundations!! Exactly what I was looking for and for the price you can't go wrong!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katiewSTL Another high quality brush to add to my collection
WOWZERS! This brush is fantastic! In fact, it's so good, I bought a back-up, too! A great investment, without a doubt!
I purchased this, along with the new UD Naked Skin Foundation. They definitely are meant to be paired with each other. This brush makes my foundation look liked it was just airbrushed on my skin. I used to use a make-up sponge when I applied my foundation or tinted moisturizer. But with this brush, you use less product and are able to blend it better than with your fingers or the sponge!
This brush is really easy to clean, too! I just use baby shampoo and tap water. I was my brush at night and by the morning, it's like a brand-new brush!
So neat that UD launched the Naked Skin Foundation and this brush together! They really are meant to be together!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Davina Blends powder Pretty Well
I saw this brush on a tutorial and it was being shown as a good way to blend in bronzers and such when contouring, so thought I would check it out. So far it seems to work pretty well, it does the job I need it for, which is blend out my bronzer when contouring so that it doesn't look harsh, it works the best on cheecks and face, not so well on nose and the brush is a little big for side areas, so far so good. It's nothing amazing at least on powders, maybe it works even better on creams? Haven't tried yet though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AggieChickk Buy it if you want flawless application!
I absolutely love this brush! I've been using it for about a month now and it's so amazing. I use it to blend my concealer and foundation and it gives you a flawless finish. It's worth every penny because it makes good drug store foundations look like they're high end! So you don't have to splurge on an expensive foundation every time you run out, just buy this brush once and you're set for a long time! It's also very easy to wash. I was my brushes every 1-2 weeks depending on how much I use then. Product washes out of this brush very easily which is very important with foundation brushes because product can build up and become a pain to wash out. I have also noticed it does not shed at all when I wash it. Overall amazing brush, worth every penny and a must have in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xLiLMsx My FAVORITE Brush!
I have REALLY oily skin, so brushes are a MUST have for me when applying foundations... but most of them leave obvious brush marks that I would later have to kind of blot away with a tissue to make them less visible since I always fear everyone can see it, even if it is only me that can. Anyway, I went to an Ulta for the Oz event makeover and he used this brush to blend in the concealer and apply the foundation and I thought... "Wow... he's good... he made that look effortless." But the great part is... it really is effortless. Just a couple drops of foundation and apply in a circular motion to your face and it really does look airbrushed. Same thing with the concealer. It's amazing! It doesn't require any touch-ups post application or anything.. It comes out PERFECT! I LOVE UD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mangodance Completely blew me away
This brush is absolutely all it's cracked up to be. I read dozens of incredible reviews for it before purchasing, and the clear consensus is that it was amazing. I can personally attest to that. I have used multiple foundations with it now (tarte Amazonian clay, Bobbi brown stick foundation, missha BB cream, etc) and each one has the same result- an incredibly smooth application and easy blending. The bit of a dome shape is really nice and it feels so wonderfully soft. It is quite dense and that really helps keep the product on your face and not get soaked up in the brush. I have not cleaned it yet (this is after 5-6 uses... Don't judge me) so I can't say if it holds up well after washes, but I have a strong feeling this little baby will be just fine. You NEED this brush, trust me ^_^
