[HELP!] What's your favorite liquid foundation brush?

Hey ladies!


I know, it's been a while I haven't been on nor posting anything. There's a lot of stuff going on in my life right now so it leaves me no choice on taking a break, but now I'm back!


So I've recently bought a bunch of liquid foundations although I realized I don't have a foundation brush! I've lost mine months ago but it doesn't hurt that much since it was a cheap one..


Tell me, what's your favorite liquid foundation brush that you cannot live without?

@ beauty parler -- I know that brand because I'm from Canada. I've heard a lot of compliment about it as "good qualities and affordable". I'm from Canada. ;)

My fave is Quo Foundation Brush (its a Canadian Brand though)

I've been using a cheap Essence of Beauty foundation brush - the really big one, which is slightly fluffy - and I'm loving it a lot, but I've also been strongly considering getting the Sephora Professionnel Platinum "air brush" foundation brush, because a makeup-loving friend absolutely swears by it!

I do love my 187 though (still using it for blush right now, actually). I prefer a stippling brush for foundation than a paddle brush just because I find you have to do less work to blend. If you do go with a paddle brush, I'd suggest going over your foundation with a kabuki to avoid streaks.

hahah! actually, both have a bad factor of it.

I don't find I have that problem after soaking the sponge. With brushes, I always found that just as much product seems to get lost in the bristles (especially with a traditional foundation brush). The density of the sponge might be a factor, though.

So far, I have my eyes on the MAC 187 and 190, Dior foundation brush, Smashbox foundation brush, ... Aaaaaah! Why is it so hard to decide?!

I agree in term of easiness but the problem with the sponge is that it absorb the product so much inside of it which makes it inconvenient.

I was using the MAC 187 but I've switched over to using a wet makeup sponge... it's an easier application and gives a better finish IMO.
