Buff & Go Brush
Soft brush, love that it's capped!
This is my favorite BE brush. I use it for my foundation, and it ensures that the power goes on smoothly and covers all my imperfections. The bristles are soft, and they're super easy to clean. I love the cap. I can slip it in my makeup bag without having to worry about the bristles getting damaged or broken off. Every girl needs one of these for travel at least...I have 2!
Not just for Mineral Veil...
I got this in a kit for Mineral Veil, but put it away because I had other brushes. I found it again when I was looking for a brush to put in my after-gym makeup bag. I have been using this for the Ready foundation, and it is perfect! it is soft and densely bristled, and picks up the foundation like a magnet. Definitely a keeper!
Great for on the go!
I love the design of this brush! It is great for on the go, it is antibacterial and doesn't get smushed in my makeup bag! My only complaint is that sometimes you have to play with the tube a little when you pull it up to put it away to prevent the cap from bending the bristles.
I have tried just about every foundation brush out there and never found one that I love till now. It covers flawlessly and, the best part, it doesn't leave those little brush hairs everywhere!
Soft as always and portable too...Love it!
I bought this today at my local store that carries BE products. I took pictures too so others can see how portable it really is. I'm not sure why this product has an overall score of 3/5. I have dual purposes for this brush. I used my mineral veil with this, just to see what it would do and it doesn't do an overkill on my face at all and I have a Golden Dark skin tone. Secondly, I can foresee myself using this with either my matte or original foundation. I DO have a soft focus face brush that I would use for my mineral veil, a flawless application brush for my Warmth All Over Face Color and for foundation I can use this tool. It's really soft, portable and for me, it was worth getting.
Little Tip/Advice: Make sure you retract the neck of the brush ALL THE WAY DOWN. This way you get the FULL bristles all the way out of the brush so that you can get the full effect and use of this brush. The neck of the brush is the part that the brush comes OUT of when you protract (push up) the bristles which happens when you retract (pull down) the neck of the brush.
This is the only bush I use for my foundation application. It give awesome coverage and make pores dissappear. It also cleans up really well.
Not quite right
I picked this up at the BE boutique in the kit with the 'measured' mineral veil.
In general, I'm a huge fan of retractable brushes; I think they hold their shape, etc. better than 'normal' brushes. So I bought the kit specifically for this brush--I had a 2/3 full MV at home that I was using.
It's true, the bristles are very soft and comfortable to use.
It's also true that the brush is the same diameter, etc., as the Flawless Face Brush.
And unlike some other reviewers, I haven't had a problem the mechanism.
For me, the problem with this brush is that it's far, far too short. The length of the retractable barreland the bristles isn't sufficient to pick up and distribute product as effectlvely as other BE brushes; so the product doesn't seem to buff on as well.
I started using BE foundation using the natural brush that came in the starter pack but I felt that I did not get enought coverage with the natural brush at al. THEN i came across the Buff & Go...I LOVE it. I only have to brush one area of my face only once as compared to a couple times using the natural brush. I would defintely recommend this brush to women who would like better foundation coverage.
Compared to the high quality I have received and expect from B.E. this blush brush is very poorly made. I am really dissatisfied and disappointed with this product.
This little gem is so soft, and easy to pack. Works great with foundation as well as mineral veil.
