Optical Blurring Brush
Our pro-quality, cruelty-free brushes are easy on the eyes AND the environment. The brushed gunmetal handles are made from recycled aluminum, and the super-soft, synthetic hair (made from recycled plastic bottles) mimics real hair—from the feel to the pickup and laydown. Another plus: Synthetic brush hair doesn’t hold on to gross bacteria the way porous animal hair can, so it’s easier to clean and more hygienic.
Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KelliJR from Not holding up I have had this brush for just under a month and it is already streaking. I bought this brush and loved it so much that I bought one for my daughter and she is experiencing the same streaking. We washed them both out and the are clumping and no longer the streak free beauties we first bought. These brushes are expensive and I thought UD was the best of the best. I'm disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Khrystyn from It's OK I loved my previous blurring brush I purchased a couple years ago. The bristles were better and felt more sturdy. This one, the bristles don't feel as nice and the brush feels cheap. I'm a makeup artist and loce a good brush. This one is usable but I don't like that they changed it

Rated 5 out of 5 by purplerosa from Indispensable I received this brush as part of the Brush stash set I purchased last October. I wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't part of the set because I already have two other foundation brushes. But this one is so much better. I have been using it for 3 months now and it's great. It distributes my foundation evenly and without streaks. It washes easily. And it still looks like new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheGirlNextDoor from Blurring Beauty!! I have head about how amazing this brush is and I finally purchased it!! This is the second bush in this collection I own and I am so excited to collect the rest! The brush is sleek and beautiful! It has Urban Decay written on one side of the ferrule and Optical Blur F105 written on the other which helps keep track for the brushes. The bristles are very tightly packed and extremely soft! I LOVE how the ferrule extends all the way down the brush handle. I paint and I appreciate the craftsmanship of this brush design!! The handle is a matte black and is absolutely stunning. This brush performs unlike anything I've ever expirenced. It blurs my make up: foundation, BB cream etc. so beautifully! The top is slightly rounded which helps it work with the natural curves of the face. I can also see this brush working to apply bronzer and blush if you wanted. It is also super LIGHT! I wouldn't have imagined it but it isn't too heavy at all! I am in LOVE with this brush and would defiantly recommend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by elisespeace from Excellent I purchased this brush at ULTA after receiving a sample of UD's All Nighter Foundation. I wanted a better quality brush to apply the newly purchased foundation. This brush is soft but thick enough for even coverage. You don't need a lot of product either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amhall1234 from Amazing coverage. This brush is THE ultimate foundation brush. It picks up the perfect amount of product and buffs it to a perfect finish. I love it so much that I have 4 of them. I even use it to set my foundation with powder. It is also super soft. Awesome product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mina M from Not as great as the original. This is a great brush, but I bought it as a replacement for its predecessor (purple handle) from some years ago (I must have purchased it in 2014-2015). Unfortunately, I consider the original the greatest foundation brush I have ever used, and while this one is kind of the same shape-wise, the previous bristles were a little softer, but sturdier, and the distribution of product was even more even. Also, the original worked great with both liquid and mineral foundations, this one is a little less potent when it comes to powders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liina from Better than Beautyblender!! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I needed a brush that would be easy to take with me when i travel (as it is pain to travel with my loved one - artis oval brush; and beautyblenders are just a pain to deal with when you are traveling) and would work with my UD One&Done and Naked foundation (Sigma and Ecotools had failed me - leaving me streaky and patchy). Did not have any high expectation, just hoped that it would work. But this brush amazed me! It is like a beauty blender in a brush form - even better! Blends perfectly; easy and quick; and does not absorb much product. I thought there isn't a brush that would by any means be similer to my artis brush.. but this one...it really is near to perfection. (I still have not tried it with the UD Allnighter foundation or MAC Fix fluid, but I have high hopes for it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFGiantsGirl28 from Didn't think it could get better than the original blurring brush! I love the original until I tried the pro optical blurring blush. These bristles are so soft and it really distributes the product perfectly on the face. It's totally worth every penny and I plan to get more of the pro collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heydreakins from Best foundation brush EVER!!! The bristles are very dense which means no streakiness with your liquid and amazing coverage for your powders or creams. This brush can handle all formulations, washes really well, does NOT shed, and is just wonderful. I have had the brush for over a year and it is my go-to for quick and easy application. The handle is lightweight so blending is a breeze. Not to mention, these brushes are visually appealing and look super professional. If you only want one foundation brush, this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lemon from Makes any foundation look better This brush has instantly elevated my foundation game. It makes my foundation go on smoothly, and buffs out beautifully. I used to have issues with too sheer coverage, cakeyness near my nose and mouth, and trouble blending around the edges. This brush makes putting on foundation super easy, and I haven't had an issue with blending since I started using it. The one con is that it can be kind of hard to clean and takes a while to dry, but that's just because it's so dense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spOILed from My Favorite Brush If there was ONE brush I couldn't live without, it would be this one. The bristles are soft to the touch, which is nice if you have sensitive skin like I do. My facial skin is easily aggravated and this brush doesn't irritate it. It has the perfect balance of structure and softness to beautifully blur and blend my foundation. I have never noticed loose or shedding bristles and it cleans really well. It STAYS soft, even after cleaning several times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MSMC from Can't live without it. I am fairly new to understanding JUST how important good brushes are. I got this brush at a retailer and when I googled its uses it said you can use it to get the fine eyeshadow dust from under your eyes after applying makeup. So that has been my primary use for it; but now seeing all of these other reviews I am going to try additional uses! I think the pricing is totally worth it. I got a set of brushes that I thought were "so nice" at the time, and in reality they felt like sandpaper when I compared my new UD brushes. Being vegan, to have a cruelty free and vegan brush is a must and I can't imagine any brush being softer. I use this daily after applying eyeshadow to sweep away the fine particles of shadow left under my eyes and it NEVER causes color to stain or smear or remain. I LOVE this brush and will definitely be giving it more use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brianna123 from Love! I absolutely love this brush, I normally don't write reviews but this brush is just too amazing not to. I have tried many different ways of putting on my foundation & this brush is by far the smoothest and easiest way! I used to put the foundation on the back of my hand then use the brush from there, but I have found that the best way to use this is to drop the foundation directly onto the brush & then use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brownlinda903 from My go to brush! This was the first high end brush I'd ever bought, and I was skeptical at first. But then I used it with Urban Decay's all nighter foundation, and OH MY GOSH. It literally makes my face look photo-shopped. The bristles are so soft, and packed just right to get optimum coverage. I do suggest using the hashtag motion when applying foundation with it. All in all I love this brush, and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ravuun from Makes Applying Naked Foundation a Breeze! I purchased this brush to use with my Naked Foundation, after using a flat foundation brush and a beauty blender didn't give me the results I wanted. The flat brush left streaks that I would have to blend out with my blender, and using the blender by itself made the coverage much too heavy. This brush buffs the foundation right into the skin, and leaves me with the perfect amount of coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CindiJ from Absolutely the BEST brush I’ve ever had!!!! It’s versatility and the ability to use it for different makeup applications is superb. Whether you use it to apply foundations, or as a finishing brush (to blend your makeup.) It is the best way to get the results you want from your makeup. I couldn’t imagine applying ANYTHING within this brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorCal1 from Be a Pro at Home I noticed this was the brush used by the UD make-up tech in the dept. store. Since my daughter's make-up looked fabulous when leaving the store, I picked one up thinking the brush might work a little 'magic' for me as well. It's a great tool to use with the Naked 2 foundation, very full and gives a natural classy look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren98 from I can't do my makeup without it! When I purchased my Naked Foundation, I was recommended to purchase this brush to apply it with! I'm so so thankful I did! This brush makes applying your makeup so easy, and it leaves a flawless finish! I clean my brush every 2 weeks, and it's still like new! Everyone should have this makeup brush! I love it!!

This is one of the best brushes I have ever used and it gives me a perfect look without overdoing the foundation. I recommend this to anyone who uses liquid foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blee from This brush is dope LIke I said in my title, this brush is dope. I use it to apply powder and cream foundations and application is smooth/even/light but buildable. I've washed it a bunch with baby shampoo or oil and it only shed like one hair once.
