Flawless Application Face Brush
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.
I like this brush for applying my Bare Minerals foundation and also the Illuminating Mineral Veil. If you want a lighter application than the Buki brush, this is the right brush for you.
I have had this brush for over 2 years now and it is still in GREAT shape! It is super soft and it works really well for warmth and mineral veil. I wash it at least every 2 weeks with BE Well Cared for brush conditioning shampoo and it comes out softer every time! I do not have a problem with bristles falling out at all! I will never buy brushes from anywhere else ever again!
I'd actually rate it a 3 1/2 <3's. I don't use it with mineral foundation but with normal compact makeup (I don't have the time to buff for 10 minutes and mineral makeup look the same as compact makeup on me) because it applies pressed (as well as loose) powders lighter than other brushes and builds coverage. It felt really soft when I got it at the store but when I used it I realized it could be softer; sometimes it pricks a little and therefore leaves the skin a little red for a minute after application. The brush also sheds more than you'd expect and smells like old attic through the first few washes. With washes my brush also spread out so it doesn't look as neat as the one pictured here. These are minor details but they can be very annoying! Some positive bits are that it's tapered so it blends makeup well with skin as well as bronzers and blushes and it's a nice medium size so it can be used everyday and while traveling. I'll use it until it dies on me but I'm not 100% sure I'd get it again.
