Refillable Buffing Brush 2.2 5 62 62
plastic eventually cracks and brush breaks I liked the brush a lot and did not have issues getting powder out, you just need to give it a thorough shake when the brush is in the "open" position. However, after using it for a few months, the bottom base cracked and I can no longer turn the dial to retract the brush... Waste of money 04/08/2014
Don't pay for aggravation The idea of this product is great, but the implementation is nonexistent. I had no luck at all getting this product to work. So I went to the reviews hoping someone else had the same experience and could explain how they finally got it to work. It turned out that almost everyone had the same experience and never found a way to make it work. So my conclusion is that I wasted my money and Bare Escentuals should discontinue selling the item. Very disappointing. 03/06/2014
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY I purchased two of these thinking it would be a great convenience for travel. I really wanted this product to work. I tried to make this function in so many ways but the product never dispenses onto the brush. These should all be recalled for a credit. Right now this is an over-sized and needless brush in my makeup drawer. 01/22/2014
Not what I hoped for After reading the other reviews it seems as though we all agree that it is a great idea, but the mechanics of it are not yet working. Most of the time I was not even sure if it was working or not and I think that I probably wasted more than I used by trying to open it and accidentally spilling it or continuing to shake it not knowing if any came out or not. This is a great idea, though, like I said before. It just didn't work for me. 12/18/2013
yep. in the trash. After reading the reviews (trying to find if there is a decent way to clean this brush on my last attempt to recover), I finally got the courage to toss it in the garbage. Like most of the reviews you read here: -product does not come out I have been using it as a powder transport and using a separate brush. I have never gotten this thing to work. I have no idea how to clean it (because of the compartment/ potential for clogging), and have never used it as it was meant to be used- as a portable powder and brush. I have been dragging it around my bag for two years and am OVER IT. I love BE, but do not buy this. The brand and the customers are better than this. 11/18/2013
The worst of bare minerals I love your products. I cannot believe this one is still being sold. I bought this several years ago at your highest end retailer. From day one I could not get it to dispense. Still cannot get it to dispense. Remove it from your line. You are too good for it. 07/31/2013
Very Disappointing I had purchased this when it first came out, thinking the concept was an awesome idea. It was very difficult to fill and once filled I could hardly get any product out. What a waste of money. I wish I would have thought of returning it back then. Instead it sat in my makeup drawer for a couple of years and finally went on the trash. Very disappointing. 07/07/2013
Do Not Buy I wish I had read these reviews before I bought this brush in a boutique. It does not work at all. Getting the foundation from the jar is ridiculous and then it absolutely refuses to come out of the brush. Then when it finally does come out of the brush it's a landslide of powder. It now sits quietly in my make up drawer taunting me. 06/27/2013
very disappointed in product The product idea is a fantastic one, to be able to have a "all in one" at your finger tips when you need to freshen/touch up your face. Even after replacing a defective Refillable Buffing Brush, I still couldn't get the foundation out. The holder will get clogged and it seems the only way I can use the product is to; unscrew the bottom, VERY CAREFULLY shake a little of the powder into the brush cap and then use the brush to apply. After reading the other reviews, it appears that Bare Minerals customers like the product idea but wish it would work. I hope the mechanics can be resolved. 05/14/2013
Doesn't live up to claims I like BM matte foundation, however hate that my bathroom, makeup bag, and purse are covered in it. I saw this product and thought it would be a great solution to the messy powder. Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver. First problem is that BM foundation containers are not designed to open so that the powder may be scooped out and into the powder chamber of the refillable brush. I have found that the easiest way to get the powder out of the original container is to shake it over a piece of paper, then roll the paper into a cone shape and shake the powder into the empty chamber end of the refillable brush. It gets the job done, but is messy and time consuming. Second problem is that there is no way to increase the amount of product deposited. There are arrows at the bottom of the brush indicating that more or less powder will come out of the brush depending on which way you turn it. THIS DOESN'T WORK. No matter which way I turn the brush, very very very little product ever comes out. Overall, a huge disappointment. I wish BM would fix the design and allow those who wasted money on this piece of junk to exchange it. 03/08/2013

I just purchased this item. I could open the old containers to get the makeup out but I can not open the new containers.

A: 
If you flip it over there's a plug on the bottom of the container you can semi-easily pop off with the edge of a dime. Getting the plug back on though is another story. After I thought I had securely popped the plug back on and went to flip my container right-side up, it fell off and all my foundation spilled all over my bathroom counter! I was able to save most of it though. To get the plug securely back on correctly, I had to use a small hammer and tap the edges of the plug back on until I heard 2 loud clicks. The plug should be slightly inside the outter ring of the container, not level with the outter ring, but all edges of the plug should be level to know that you've securely put it back on correctly. It was a nightmare, but I got it back on!

The brush comes off for cleaning/filling your brush so when you activate the powder to fill the brush, be sure to secure the brush so that it doesn't come off. The dial at the bottom of the brush allows you to close it up or buff on your look.

I think that if you look at the bottom of the jar, there is a little dial. You can try using the edge of a dime to twist it open. I hope this is what you meant! :-)

Please make an option for use with your eye shadow. I don't like the mess of opening ( and spilling ) the pots of eye shadow. The brushes are great for the face products. Please modify for eyes!!

Keep your pots of eyeshadow upside down. I do that with all bareminerals products. I wish they would design them that way, so that the retail side is on the bottom etc.

If you mean a sifter for the concealer and eye shadow, I totally agree. There's sifters for the loose blush powder, veil, warmth all over face color and foundation. But for eye shadow and concealer, which are my favorites as well, there's no sifter. The jar tops are great and I never mess up anything, but still...it would be fantastic if I can seal it off like I can with everything else. Ask a BE rep if they plan on making a sifter for eye colors and concealers!

It's empty and you fill it with your foundation powder. Reading the other reviews I don't think I'll get it. I'm better off swirling tapping and buffing my heart out. Sephora has $3 sifters where you can put your makeup in and carry it with you instead of taking the source with you. It would be a lot better I think. I just ordered 6 sifters yesterday. Can't wait to get them. I have a home makeup bag, purse bag, swim bag and also a bag I would take for hotel visits. I would rather lose or misplace a $3 item verus my $26-$28 source jar lol.

It comes empty so you can put what you want in it. It comes with a little spoon to help move the powder. Using a paper funnel works well too and is a little faster.

It comes empty with a little scoop. You just put your make up in a little jar that screws into the base of it.

No, there's no product in the brush. When you get it, it will be empty. Then you can put whatever you want to in it. Even mineral veil.
