Rant: It’s hard to find one that isn’t too big and/or doesn’t apply too much product.

Rave: When you find the right one, it makes your blush look so natural.

I love them because they apply powder blushers! 😛 I would not like to find I bought a scratchy one! 🙁 So, I’m with Christine on this topic! 😀 I just bought two blushes, I’m inspired to indulge in a new brush.. Again.. I LOVE EBATES!

XOXOXOXO Christine! <– So helpful! <3 🙂 Can't wait to see what your children are like! 😉 (Great genes) Please write a book?! 🙂

Me too! Disability isn’t GREAT… And now it’s just that much easier to really gift to those I love, including myself! 😀 Addictive though.. 😉

I use the MAC 187 stippling brush for blush. Anything else is too dense for me. With the 187 I can have a light swept look or build up for more drama.

I’m petite, have a small face, so I can’t use blush brushes that are too big, or else I get clown cheeks. I usually use travel- sized brushes to apply blush. I actually want blush brushes that are denser, to pack on the blush because they tend to fade on my cheeks, event the long-wearing ones. I usually have to pack on a cream blush, then a powder blush on top to make it last.

I’ve just started trying a stippling brush (by real techniques) to apply my blush. It works really well, and if I put too much on, I can easily buff it away.

I really enjoy applying blush to my cheeks, and tapping the brush in the blush pans. It’s just very satisfying. The affect usually isn’t as interesting for me, but I really enjoy the application. I don’t like when a blush brush doesn’t diffuse the colour, so you have to buff it out a ton with something like the rt multitasking brush or the rt buffing brush.

I like the fact that there’s an increasing variety, because different types of blushes work better with different tools.

I don’t dislike anything about them as a general rule, but I hate scratchiness.

The right brush can really make your blush look its best. It’s just hard to find the right one sometimes. Especially if you have a smaller face. Some brushes can be too big, fluffy or dense.

I don’t think there is anything to rant about unless you’re using a cheap, poorly made brush that has been cut into shape. A good brush is not cut into shape. It is hand formed so that the naturally tapered tips of the hair are what come into contact with your face. I think some of the world class Japanese brush manufacturers have taught us a lot about what goes into a quality brush. I have 3 brushes that I typically use depending on the blush formulation: Tom Ford (goat) when I’m doing a bit of buffing, Hakuhodo (blue squirrel) for when I’m working with highly pigmented blushes, and Chanel (dual fiber blender) for when I’m wearing cream formulations. I love them all and have nothing but praise for them.

Rave: they are a nicer way than fingers to apply powder blush!

Rant: I only own one little mini travel one, and it’s pretty terrible, LOL! 😉

I wish there was a QUALITY (with good fibers and correctly cut shape) mini blush brush that would make the small pans in palettes usable. I really rely on palettes for travel, but the blushes never go on properly with travel-size blush brushes.

Rant- too many choices, the nice ones are too pretty to choose
Rave- many nice selections to choose from…..and there are those synthetic ones for those who won’t buy the real fur
