Good quality brush but not useful for highlighting.
Not good for Highlighting but good brush otherwise. The bristles are too dense for picking up highlighter. This brush also has a flat top which is not ideal for use with highlighters. I noticed it would pickup a lot of product but would not deposit the color on my face. Does not blend well either, which is a must when applying highlighter. This brush is better suited for applying wet foundation of concealer and for buffing. All of MUG brushes are good quality included this "highlighting' brush but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT FOR HIGHLIGHTING.

Awesome brush!
Love this brush. Picks up powder nicely and my highlighter always looks amazing and I barely have to do anything when using this brush. This is my go to brush for putting the finishing touches on my face. It's a perfect size for my hand. I Am so happy I decided to order it! If you are on the fence on whether to get it or not go for it!

Feels Soft, Perfect Size!
Perfect size and nice bristles. Even after multiple washings it's still really soft and picks up the highlighter great!

Worst highlight brush EVER, one of the best as a blush brush
BEYOND TERRIBLE highlight brush, I don't know how anyone else as an opposing opinion. This brush is too flimsy, and highlighters are too dense for the bristles (just my 100% honest opinion and observation). My highlights don't show up at ALL no matter how many layers I apply when using this brush. Super disappointing. However, it is absolutely fantastic as a blush brush (prefer it to all my other blush brushes). It's so good as a blush brush that I rated it as a 4, which if this is strictly for the highlight, I rate it 1 stars. I only rate it a 4 because of the misleading title. Maybe I am using it wrong? I don't get it! If this was labeled as a blush brush, I'd rate it a 5 stars, for sure. It is the real deal, and I recommend it to absolutely anyone for blush. JUST BE WARNED - THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR FACE IF YOUR HIGHLIGHT IS PATCHY/DOESN'T SHOW UP, IT'S THIS BRUSH!

Love it
I absolutely love this brush.I bought this brush over two yrs ago and no other brush apply my highlight like this one. Sad part is I recently washed it and it totally came apart. I need to purchase another one :(

Not Bad
When I'm in a rush and wasn't able to wash my other brushes the night before, this comes to the rescue as foundation/powder love using it to contour too :)

Great Brush!
This brush is fantastic. Love the tapered handle and love how soft the bristles are. Works great and you can build highlight easily, plus it's affordable and feels so high quality. I much prefer this brush over non-tapered ones because I feel like you can control how much product applies better. You can't go wrong with this, just get it. I promise you won't regret it.

Versatile And Affordable!
I'm so glad I purchased this brush, I really needed something to control how much product I apply on my cheeks and this brush does the job and so much more! I know its for highlighting but I use it as my blush brush and im amazed how natural the end result looks. Well done Marlena, im so obsessed with your products! :)

Great Quality At A Great Price!
AMAZING!!! I have been looking for the perfect brush to apply my highlighters. I'm a girl on a budget so I did not want to spend a fortune, but still wanted a good brush. Well, I found it! This brush applies the perfect amount of highlighter to give that glow! Also amazing for blending under eye concealer.

Thanks Makeup Geek for making quality products at an afforadable price.

More Than A Highlighter Brush!!
I just loved the idea of having this small highlight brush to hit those areas where you didn't want a lot of product. But I was so surprised because you can use this for a multitude of makeup applications. I have used it for under eye concealer. Why I love the brush for this is because I am in my 40's and it doesn't let the product settle I to fine lines. I have a smaller face and also use this for contouring. I just love it. The quality is great, as with every brush I've purchased, which is almost all of them.

Right Size
I purchased this brush for a cheek highlighting brush and it is just the right size for highlighting your cheeks. This is a good quality brush without the high price tag. Thank you Makeup Geek for a quality product at a reasonable price. I will be ordering some more of these brushes.

Good Starter Tool
I found this brush to be very soft and great at applying just enough liquid highlighter. My problem came in when I tried to blend in a circular motion, the look became streaky and blotched.
I feel that the bristles are maybe too long. I feel that if the bristle length would be shorter and more pressed, like the foundation stipple brush, it would be a better product (I did cut my bristles down to length, and after that, it was amazing). For the price, I don't have any problems modifying the brush for my use. And, it allowed me to get 3 brushes in comparison to mac's one.

Works Perfectly To Apply Highlighter Or Cream Blush
I got this brush (i had the same one from MAC) and frankly you cannot tell the difference between one or another except for the price you pay for it !
Once again great deal for amazing quality.
Thanks !

Works perfect for liquid or powder highlighters very happy :) maybe even foundation (a tad streaky but versatile brush) as always excellent quality, comparable to MAC and a WAAAAAY better rice. Way to go Marlena (and staff) on another fabulous product!

Just like the MUG brushes, this one sheds also! For the price you pay, it is very nice. But if only it would not shed . . .
