Review & Usage
Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush is a medium-sized, dome-shaped foundation brush that was designed specifically to apply the brand’s own Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup. However, it can also be used to apply other liquid, cream, and powder foundation as well. The brush handle (made from recycled aluminum) has a purple-ish metallic color and flat bottom so it can stand on its own if you wish to store it that way. The brush also has a wider area near the top of the handle making it super easy to hold and control the coverage while you’re buffing in your foundation.
The bristles are two-toned synthetic and cruelty-free. They are densely-packed to distribute the pigment evenly on the face. It is possible to achieve a near airbrushed finish with this brush when you apply your foundation with a stippling method and then gently buffing it in to the skin with circular motions. I have never had a streaky or cakey finish when using this brush. I like how the bristles are soft but still firm enough that they don’t flare out too much — this makes it possible to maneuver into the nooks and crannies of the face.
The only small drawback with this brush is that it requires a little effort to clean (due to the dense bristles) and can take a full day or two to dry completely after cleaning. Otherwise, it’s a great tool to have for a flawless (foundation) face! :)
