Review: GOSH Foundation Brush


I've been looking for the perfect foundation brush for a good few months and I think I've found it.  I have the Body Shop one and one from the Revlon Vital Radiance range which is a bit smaller than normal and good for getting into nooks and crannies.  However I they always left a few streaks that I'd have to go over with a damp sponge.


I am in love with this £9.99 GOSH duo hypoallergenic foundation brush.  It's 100% synthetic with nylon bristles which they say are more hygienic, hold their shape and will not feather




I have a few GOSH eye brushes and a blusher brush which is meh, but I'll be hard pressed to switch to another brush for foundation now.  What attracted me to it is that it's not your typical flat shape, but is quite full, making it easier to buff in foundation to avoid streaks.

It doesn't shed and washes like a dream, returning right back to its original colour.  The handle is a little shorter than my other brushes, and shorter than MAC brushes but that doesn't hamper application.


I just pump some Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation onto it, dot around my face and start blending and it's revolutionised the way I used MaxFactor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion foundation.  I used to use the sponge which came with it, but it left me looking almost too pale and 'made up' but used with this GOSH brush, my skin looks flawless.

If you're looking for a good foundation brush, I highly recommend this one.  GOSH can be found at Superdrug.

  1. I bought this brush a couple of days ago and indeed, it's the absolute best in its price range.
    However, it does work best with foundations that blend in easily (like the bourjois healthy mix you mentioned, chanel vitalumière (auqua) or Mac Face and Body). With a foundation that has more coverage (like Estée Lauder Double Wear, Maybelline Super Stay 24h or Max studio fix) however, this brush isn't the best option.
    But I don't like foundations with lots of coverage, anyway. :)

  8. @Jolien - yes I prefer to apply thicker foundation with my fingers anyway as the body heat helps melt the product into the skin. My other traditional flatter foundation brushes don't work very well with thicker formulations either.

    @Lauren - Thanks! It's not always in Superdrug, I had to look in a few to find it in stock.

    @Sarah - thanks!

    @Pixielashes - You won't regret it, I adore it and love using it.

    @Bree - you're welcome!

    @Blushingloves - you're welcome too!

    @kay eh tea ei. - I was thinking about splashing out on a MAC one but won't bother now as I'm so happy with this one.

  9. Just to let you know my nails arrived today, thankyou so much for them and your lovely note, I shall post about them when I use them :)
    Great post by the way, I find the softer foundation brushes are better at getting it to all the nooks and crannies!

  10. Oh you're very welcome my dear! I managed to post them yesterday afterall as the packet fitted through the post box, which saved me queuing :) The french tip ones I had on lasted for a week and then two pinged off, so I wouldn't leave them on longer than that as the 'pinging off' can damage the nail bed.
    Re the brush, it's plus point is definitely that it's nice and soft, the stiff ones are too difficult to blend with! x
