Refillable Buffing Brush
Worst bare E. Purchase ever :(
No wonder it was on such a mega sale.... I filled it up per directions however no matter how hard I try and how long I have left it upside down.... It just doesn't out put much foundation AT ALL!!! :( I've pressed that button a millions times.... Still no go. I LOVE bare minerals/escentual products.... This was by far my least favorite purchase from them. Bummer.
Best dispenser ever!
I really dont understand the bad reviews!! It is easy to use and prevents spilling the product. Its easy to remove the brush to clean it and it is easy to fill! I love it an have 3 of them. One for moneral veil and 2 for my different shades of foundation! If you have a hard time removing the product, remove the brush hrad and shake the minerals into the brush. This is the perfect travel and take along brush! Please dont discontinue it. Would like to see one for the loose blush too!
Waste of Money!!
Had hoped to use while traveling. Tried it at home first... and left it home.
Tonight, gave it a second chance. DOES NOT WORK. WASTE OF MONEY.
OK and convenient
The brush has a very convenient design but unfortunately, works better with mineral veil than foundation. And it is not very soft.
Great idea - Poor design
I wanted this to be great. It seemed like the perfect way to keep my mineral foundation neat and easy to use, especially while traveling. But the reality is that the brush head would fall off every time I would shake it to distribute the power on the brush. And shaking didn't bring enough powder to the brush to use properly. The powder compartment was too small to hold all my powder so I still had to keep it elsewhere as well. The brush was beautiful and soft, but if it keeps falling onto the floor, it can't be used.
I'm returning mine. :(
Perfect Travel Tool
I am not sure what the other writers were doing with this brush. I have been in a job that requires 100% travel for the last 5 years ... I have been travelling with this brush, loaded with my makeup for the entire time. It works. It has not cracked or broken. I make a little cone out of a small piece of note paper to refill it. In fact I have two of these ... the smaller for the makeup and the larger for the mineral veil. Maybe folks are not reading the directions?
Love the idea, hate the product
As many others have said, the concept is great but the product isn't. I've been a BE customer for many years and I thought I'd give this product a try even though it was a bit pricey. It worked great for the first few months, although it was awkward getting the powder into the reservoir, but then the part you turn to make the brush extend and retract cracked making it virtually useless other than a regular brush since it now won't go back down.
I've not had much of a problem getting the powder to come out onto the brush as some reviewers have. If you give it a good couple of taps on the palm of your had it usually comes out fine.
I wouldn't recomment this to anyone becuase it doesn't last. Maybe if the design flaws are fixed I might try it again...
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
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.
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.
