I love Target, it's addicting and easy to go crazy in that place! I also love the Sonia Kashuk line they carry- it's great quality at a great price and I love that her line is always updated with new collections and products. It's no surprise I stumbled across her pointed foundation brush for $12.99.
It definitely piqued my interest because it was pointed, and most of the foundation brushes I see these days are the typical flat sided brushes. And heck, for $12.99, it was mine! I wanted to compare it to the Sephora Airbrush Brushes I recently reviewed. I know everyone is on a budget, so I wanted to find something that can fit both of the Sephora brushes at half the price, and the Sonia Kashuk Pointed Foundation Brush definitely fits the bill.
It has soft synthetic bristles like the Sephora brushes, and the small pointed tip mimics the Sephora Concealer Brush #57 to help you apply your liquid/cream concealer or foundation in hard to reach places such as under the eyes, around the nose, etc. You can see a size comparison below next to a MAC eyeshadow, where it's just the right size, not too big, and not too small.
Overall? I highly recommend it if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Sephora brushes, at $12.99 you can't go wrong! It does the job and works great with liquids and creams, and can still give you a nice airbrush finish.
*It's "Kashuk", sorry for the misspelling!
