Flawless Application Face Brush
Great Brush... Not For Me
This is a very nice brush, which is why I gave it five stars. It is just not my cup of tea. I much prefer the buki brush for the type of coverage I want from foundation, and I use the soft focus face brush for applying mineral veil, radiances, bronzer, etc..
That being said, I do have a nice brush roll that I keep this brush in because if I find a use for it, I will not hesitate to break it out and use it. I got it with my get started kit, and I just switched to the handy buki because of my coverage preference.
This brush distributes product evenly, but it sheds and the hairs are difficult to pull off of my skin. Doesn't look so good to have little hairs on your perfectly made-up face.
I love this brush! It cleans well, applies makeup well, and I've had it for four months and it looks and feels just the same as when I bought it. I'm satisfied.
I use this brush to apply my foundation and love having the control of sheer to medium coverage. It buffs the foundation well and provides nice coverage over my entire face that only take a few minutes to do each morning. The brush is soft and I wash it every two weeks using the BE brush shampoo; it has held up well with the cleaning with only a few hairs falling out over the past several months.
could be a great brush
The last 3 of these brushes I have been very disappointed with. EVERY one of them starts to loose it's bristles with in the first few uses. Every day I have bristles left on my face or in my eyes because of this brush. The last one I got smelled like skunk when I opened the package. I don't know what chemicals you are using when making this brush, but you may want to reconsider.
I use this brush for my mineral veil and Blush and it works perffectly!!!
Depends on the purpose
This brush is hard to rate, because it really depends on what you are using it for. If you have any kind of skin issues, this is not the best brush to apply foundation as it provides a smooth but LIGHT coverage. If you are using it for mineral veil or face color, then it is great. I also have issues with it drying too fuzzy after it has been washed. So, I can only give it four stars, even though I use it nearly everyday.
Good for light application
I like a light foundation layer so this works fine. I had tried to use a none BE brush but this one is much better.
Good For mineral veil-but bristles fall out
I'm also having the problem with the bristles falling out. I thought it was just me, but apparently not. I use this brush for mineral veil and for warmth and occasionally for blush but it doesn't give nearly enough coverage for the foundation.
Great smooth finish
I prefer the handy buki for foundation but on good days when I don't need much coverage I use this instead. I use this brush everyday for both warmth and mineral veil. It gives a great light coat. I think this brush is more for all-over-face color and mineral veil as opposed to the criticisms (some other reviews) regarding its usefulness for foundation coverage. That has just been my experience.
