Flawless Wonder Brush Review

I've heard a lot about the Flawless Wonder Brush and other brushes of this type lately and all have been surrounded with great reviews. When I spotted the Flawless Wonder Brush recently in our local chemist I thought "this is great" and I parted with my €13.99. 


The brush have a curved handle possibly for ease of use but felt very flimsy in the hand. The head of the brush is oval (most of us think "toothbrush") and the bristles extremely dense (uncomfortably so). The brush can be used for liquid, creams, and powders and I gave all of them a go with this brush. So after a month (if not more) of really trying to get to grips with this brush I am no better off. 


The brush is so dense it can feel scratchy on the most sensitive of places on my skin i.e the top of my cheekbones and the bristles do not seem to budge so doesn't move with the product (if you can catch my drift at all). Another downside to this brush is how long it takes to apply the products and buff in as the brush is just too small. I'm a big fan of flat top Kabuki brushes and they get the job done effortlessly and in quick time.


The application of the products, either cream or liquid did not bode well with me. The products was dragged across my face even though I would make sure not to miss buffing a single bit, I was still left with the product moving from one side to the other leaving me with patchy foundation. I moved on to trying this with contouring only to find it just would not blend out any harsh lines that I had. I got very frustrated with this brush and I've now given up on it.


This brush has been compared to the O! Wow Brush by Cailyn and even though I haven't tried it, I have seen it up close and the bristles do have movement in it compared to this. I ended up not buying it as I don't think these oval shaped brushes are for me. I think this has got to be the most disappointing review of a product I have ever done but this was my experience using it. If you think you can master the technique it takes to use this and have the patience then this could definitely be for you. I've also decided not to let this brush hit the bin either after reading Blather and the Beauty blog 3 alternatives ways to use it, so definitely worth checking that out everyone!

Let me know if you have used this and how you got on, or if you are considering taking the plunge to buy?

  2. Not a fan either. Might as well be using a hard bristled toothbrush on your face

    1. At least the toothbrush would be cheaper haha. I'll be giving this type of brush a miss in future.

  3. I was interested in these but it seems like they would just smear your foundation rather than buff? I think I'm still the only one who uses their hands lol

    1. Unfortunately it just drags the foundation across the face which then leaves you with patches :( No you are not alone by using just your hands for applying foundation :)

  4. My sister bought it and couldn't get it to work so I washed it and gave it a go but unfortunately it's so dense it doesn't work. My eBay one that looks similar was far better X

    1. That's interesting that a cheaper ebay one works better Louise! I don't think I'd bother again with any brush of this type again though x

  5. See I bought one for basically a quid on eBay and love it. Doesn't give the most flawless finish that my beauty blender does,but for a quid definitely worth it. Don't think I would buy Cailyn one though to be honest xxx

    2. Definitely not. Did you ever see the round one they have? I am nearly sure it was around 70 quid!!!!

  6. Looks like I'm the odd woman out but I love mine! I have oily skin and like a light coverage. And it gives me that without much effort from me.

  7. Great review! I always wanted to try this out for it seems a good one but thanks for your review and I don't have to buy it anymore. I prefer easy to use brushes that would not buff like this one.

  8. Im actually dying to try this brush out.! I think its a love it or hate one though I heard lots of people say its the best and some like you are not impressed. I saw that Penneys have brought out this brush in three sizes for their PS Pro range so Ill definitely try it out...I wouldnt go breaking the bank with the more high end versions xoxo L
