Light Stroke Brush
Overall this brush is okay. It just reminds me of a paintbrush that you get at a paint store or something. The brush itself is a little harsh. Some of the brissils poke your eyelid. It's very good for blending eyeshadows though. The brush is a little big for the eyelid so if your trying to be precise with what your doing, this is probably not the best product to get. If you really want all the eyeshadow on your lid to be blended, this would be an okay product to get.
Light Stroke Brush
This brush is fantastic for the Correcting Concealer and the Bisque Concealers. It picks up the right amount of product and covers blemishes and acne perfectly. I also use it to conceal the dark circles under my eyes.
Some of the previous reviews indicated that the bristles were scratchy; however, with the brush I purchased this is not the case! My brush is extremely soft and smooth. A great brush for concealers.
Not the best for concealer
Once when I had gone in to a BM boutique, my consultant used this on me to apply concealer. It did the job, but I came away with mixed feelings. It blends in the concealer a little better and is easier to build coverage than with the other concealer brushes from BM I've tried (the Max Coverage Concealer brush as well as the little one that comes with Blemish Therapy), so it came out looking quite good, but I don't think I would ever buy this. The bristles were a little scratchy, and on something like blemishes that you sometimes have to go over a few times to even it out just right, I did not care for this brush. I could use this for eye shadow, for something that you just lightly dust onto the lid...but not something where you press in a little bit.
Giving it three stars because it did its job.
Don't buy any of these brushes
I recently purchased this brush and the one for applying the mineral makeup. They are inferior brushes, smell horrible and are irritating to the eyes when you use them. This is unexceptable.
Do you need to exfoliate?
This brush swipes on well-rested for eyes really beautifully, but I am sorry to say it is terribly scratchy... I have very sensitive skin and have to be utterly careful when using the light stroke brush, if I don't want to get my face all reddened!
I use this brush to put light colored eye shadows as a base from my lashes all the way to my brows. This brush picks up the color really easily and it puts on the perfect amount for a light wash of color.
great for covering dark patches!
I love the Light Stroke Brush for covering a dark patch on my face! It pats Bisque on nicely and yet is soft enough to blend out the edges so that there isn't a noticeable light patch on my face. I used to use the Maxiumum Coverage Concealer brush for this purpose, but now I reserve that brush for using Well Rested under my eyes when I need it. Thank you to Christina Choi and Bravon Pascua for these helpful tips!!
