Rated 5 out of 5 by Hill Amazing quality !
I love the quality of this brush ! I got it with the Naked pallet, and haven't stopped using it. It's bristles have stayed flat, amazingly soft, but still stiff, and perfect since day 1 of purchase. I don't think I've noticed one bristle fall from this brush, and the handle isn't wood, so it's easy to clean, and is more durable than every other brush I own ! I don't just use it for shadow, it's also good for concealer, and small fixes of foundation ! Instead of a sponge brush, I also use this brush for very compacted, bold shadow looks, amazing for packing on the shadow, or for smudging your eye liner. Basically the perfect brush !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel99 best shadow brush
I've tried brushes from many high-end brands but this one has absolutely no competitors. It might sound mean but I think anyone who doesn't like it is probably not using it correctly, or had different expectations... This brush is used to pat eyeshadow on, it's not so much for blending, so don't use any swiping motions. However, the bristles are soft enough on the end to blend it up into the crease a little, which I often do when in a hurry. This brush is by far the best for applying eyeshadow to the lid and honestly, if you can only have one brush, it should be this one because it can serve for a little bit of blending and lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dsprincess Extremely versatile
This brush is one of the best multi-tasking brushes I have tried. The flat portion of the brush is good for patting on powder eyeshadow, the tip/top portion is good for details on the lid and crease, and the tip is also great as a liner brush for using powder eyshadows as eyeliners! Because the tip is so thin and precise, it's even possible to get a wing when using powder shadows as eyeliner. This is definitely what impressed me the most about this brush.
The only thing that is weird to me is how the shadow brush is shaped like a concealer brush. But...I guess that's just another thing this brush can do!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheShell Not love at first swipe BUT...
When I first got this brush with my Naked palette I had a really hard time with it. It just doesn't seem to pack on the color as well as other brushes I've tried so it ended up sitting for quite a while.
Then I discovered that the dense and sleek nature of the bristles make it a PERFECT alternative to a pencil brush. I find that using the Good Karma brush I get a smaller and more tight line on my lower lash. When using a pencil brush the line tends to go on thicker and I have to go back with a q-tip to remove the excess shadow. So now I use Good Karma soley for the lower lash line and am pleased with the results every time. In fact, now it is my pencil brush that I hardly ever use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubala AWESOME brush!!! I LOVE IT!
I got this brush with my Naked Palette that I purchased a few months ago. At first, I felt a bit ripped off because I didn't get the 24/7 eyeliner. After using this brush, I am no longer upset! It picks up dry eyeshadow beautifully and applies effortlessly to your lid. I use a patting motion to apply the eyeshadow. It even blends beautifully! I also have no problems cleaning this brush. I do not understand why some other reviewers are having trouble with it. I LOVE this brush and it's usually the one I reach for when applying my eyeshadow. This brush is going to last me a lifetime compared to the short lifespan of a pencil eyeliner! Thanks Urban Decay for introducing me to a new product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by metallisch Good brush, great quality.
I have used this brush for multiple things: applying concealer, foundation, and eyeshadow. It doesn't pack on a lot of shadow, but it is good for getting just enough concealer and foundation in the natural crevices of the face. The bristles do seem kind of flimsy, but I've noticed it's much easier to apply shadow with if I'm pressing the shadow on my lid, as opposed to "gliding" the shadow over the eyelid. Overall, it's a good brush and if it's not suitable to your liking as an eyeshadow brush, it seems to be versatile in applying concealer and foundation. One thing I did not like about this brush was the handle shaft seemed heavy and if I did not hold it nearly center, it was almost difficult to control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginger1987 My favorite brush!!!
I have bought MAC brushes, Elf brushes, Too Faced brushes, and more, but nothing compares. I got one of these babies in my Naked palette and it's my favorite! I thought I would stick to my MAC brushes, but every morning I found myself reaching for this brush. It's so easy not only to use, but to clean. It's so soft, picks up color and packs on color fantastically. Overall, this is a fantastic brush and once I destroy it from over use (which will take quite a while... It's so hardy and not a single hair has fallen out!!!) I'll come right back to buy another one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DJMM Good quality, but a bit stiff
The quality of this brush is in sync with all of the other Karma brushes--great! But, it is a bit too stiff for me. I use a lot of loose and pressed powders. I find this a bit too stiff to pick up loose shadow and also a bit too stiff to not take a bit of color off if you use it to swipe pressed powder on. Patting is ok, but again, it's stiff enough that you end up with more fall-out than if you use a slightly fluffier brush. I guess it comes down to personal preference. Sometimes I use this for other things like cream shadows and that seems to work better.
