    This is quite small for a foundation brush, no? Do you spend more time applying?

    I have been using a foundation brush by Essense Of Beauty {I think it’s a CVS brand} that I’ve been very happy with. It’s also quite reasonably priced, works very well, is good quality and is durable. I think it’s a synthetic and feels very soft and nice on the skin. Has anyone else here used that one?

    Yay!! When you teased us yesterday about a new foundation brush by Sonia Kashuk, I couldn’t WAIT to read your review today. I went to Target last night and actually SAW this brush and thought to myself, “this has GOT to be the brush she’s talking about, I’m gonna get it.” And I did. Used it this morning and LOVE IT!!! I think we are brush twins because I also have the Sephora IT brush as well and love that one too. (I HAD the GA one as well and loved it but like you said it had a short life span)
    Thanks for the great review!!

    Read this right before a trip to Target yesterday and remembered to check out Sonia Kashuk while I was there. So excited to see they had the foundation brush. I bought it and used it today and loved it! Thanks for posting about it!

    Thank you for this review Kari.
    I will absolutely buy it, if you like it! I was not wowed by the original either.
    I have several Essence of Beauty brushes and I think they are phenomenal for the money…I like them just as much as my Trish McEvoy brushes, which are at least 3x the price

    Wonderful work on your blog! I, too, would LOVE it if Chanel were to launch their European brush line in the U.S. I heard from a Chanel SA in the U.K. that the brand will be releasing a whole new line of brushes this year. Without revealing your source, did you hear this rumour about Chanel’s European brushes from a Chanel USA representative? I am keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks.

    The best brush I ever got was a short-handled Chanel powder brush. I’ve had it for over 20 years. I take good care of it, and I don’t wear makeup that often, so it doesn’t get a lot of use, but it’s the best brush I’ve ever had. The short handle is ideal for me, because I’m near-sighted and when I apply makeup I have to get close to the mirror. If I use a long brush, they bang up against the mirror, LOL. Not good!

    Is it necessary to use a brush to apply foundation or tinted moisturizer? I used to use sponges, but I’ve heard that fingers or a brush work better.
