BOW DOWN before the mighty Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Top Blusher Brush. Marvel at its multi-tasking prowess and how it applies blushes and foundations with ease. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself trembling — with glee! — at the cash register. Not only is this brush amazing, but it’s also cheap — $14.99. Holla!
Billed as a cream blush brush, its synthetic fiber head feels like velvet against my skin. Earlier this week when I used it with Sonia’s Creme Blush, it left just the right amount of color on my cheeks without any streaking. Blending with it was also a snap. It removed harsh lines with ease.
The brush is flat on the top of the head, which is not a totally revolutionary design, but it is one I’d never used before.
I couldn’t help but wonder what else I could use this brush with, so I experimented with it this afternoon. I think it also works great with…
- Powder blush. After I applied powder blush with a regular MAC 116 blush brush, I used the Flat Top to apply a pop of color onto my cheeks. Tada! Glowy cheeks!
- Powder foundation. I tried applying MAC Mineralize Loose SPF 15 foundation with the Flat Top, and um, WOW! The foundation looked like it melted into my skin. No streaking, no cakiness, nada — just perfectly applied medium foundation coverage.
- Liquid foundation. Once again, the Flat Top delivered fantastic results. I dotted foundation onto my face, wet the brush head with MAC Fix+ and blended. The brush gave an almost airbrushed look to my skin, and I love how it’s small enough to use in the nooks around my nose.
The Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Top Blusher Brush is a multi-tasking monster that eats my other wimpy blush brushes for breakfast!
And I also really dig the curved handle. It fits just right between my thumb and forefinger, which makes it easy to control.

This weekend I’m heading to my nearby House of Tar-ghay (Target) to get a backup, but you can also purchase it online from Target’s website.
I have a killer migraine headache right now, girls, and not even love for Sonia’s Flat Top brush has made it go away. I think I’m gonna take a couple Advil and rest on the couch in front of the TV for a while. Maybe Flavor of Love 3 will ease the pain.
