Perfecting Face Brush
owned for 15 months - love this brush
I simply love this brush and have had no problems. I purchased in early July 2014 and have used it everyday since (over one year!). I wash it often. no problems with shedding. It does take a while to rinse clean . the consultants at BM store said to only use a small drop of foundation with this brush, and that's all I'll need. He was right. This brush makes the liquid foundation last so much longer.
My daughter (15) just started wearing makeup recently and there will be one of these in her Christmas stocking for sure!
dissappointing and overpriced
I was highly recommended this makeup brush by the sales rep at the Bareescentuals boutique. At first it seems like a great brush, its super soft and has what appears to be a useful well for the liquid bareskin makeup. But its basically impossible to clean! The 'well' becomes a reservoir for makeup and no matter how hard I try or what I use I could never get it completely clean. I felt like it applied the make up streaky and made my pores more visible. And now less than a year of owning the brush the bristles are falling out of it. Its junk, don't buy it. I have better application with just a large latex free wedge sponge.
why must you shed?
i love this brush the consept but why must you shed i thought maybe it was a fluke and am back to buy a new one and i see so many people having the same issue ! please fix this cause i want to love it!
Many of the brushes from BE fall apart but this one is the absolute worst. After only a few weeks, the whole brush had come out of the handle setting. It was a disaster. I tried hard to hold it back together but ended up with too many brush hairs on my face. Between this terrible brush and the leaky bareSKIN foundation that goes with it, I no longer use these two products.
The first one I purchased a year ago shed like crazy. Bristles everywhere. I went to the boutique in my local mall and they gave me a new one. Exceptional customer service.
How is this a best seller
This brush is aweful! I am very disappointed at it's performance. I have been wearing and using bare minerals products for as long as I have been wearing makeup and this is by far the worst brush I have come across. It leaves my foundation streaky and it sheds worst that my shih tzu! I am very disappointment that I spent $38 on it. I have only used it a few times and it started shedding on the second use and has gotten worse with each use. I ended up purchasing a brush from my local beauty supply for under $7 and it's performance is far more superior. I bet most that buy it don't buy it twice.
Disappointed, Love the make up but the brush is not worth the money. After a couple of months it sheds. Every time I put my make up on, my face is full of bristles. It is not worth it to me to have to buy a brush more frequent then I have to buy my make up.
bristols fall out
I too as many loved this brush for a few months and now I just get a face full of brisols....not sure, as many, if I want to spend the money to replace it. I have never been disappointed in any of your products.
Mixed Feeling on This Brush
I loved this brush.....that was until the shedding began. I purchased it in March of 2015 always washed it as described in the videos but in June of 2015 I noticed some shedding now we are in July and the shedding is so bad I'm throwing it out! I love the coverage this brush gives, hides the redness on my face but all the shedding all over my face and clothes is awful. Overall this brush is great if your company can find a way to stop the shedding, I do want another but don't want to spend this kind of money on something that will probably shed again in 3 months!!! This picture below show all the shedding and all the unevenness in the fibers in the brush
Poorly made brush
I have used Bare Minerals since I was in college and was excited to use this brush with the foundation. I was pleased with the product until after only a couple of months the bristles started to fall out. It became so bad that I had to stop using the brush. It is poorly made. too bad!
