Rated 2 out of 5 by seachells Not the best
This brush was actually from a friend, that didn't really use much makeup. I highly doubt she would have passed it along knowing the quality. I didn't even realize this was a BareMinerals product until I looked it up! When I think of this brand I think quality first, but I would not buy any of the brushes after my experience with this one. The bristles are constantly coming out and sticking to my face, and it's difficult to get them off without wiping off applied makeup. Definitely not anywhere near worth the price. It has gotten me by for now, and I only keep using it until I can find a replacement.

This is a replacement, even though the brushes last a long time, there comes a time you need a new one. Have used this brush for years, I'm a long time bare minerals user.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best finishing brush
I always use my flawless face brush as the last step in my bareminerals makeup routine. I only use bareminerals moisturizers and makeup on my skin!!! I first apply moisturizer, then my complexion rescue or bareskin (depending on what type of coverage I want), then loose mineral foundation in original or matte (also depending on coverage I want and whether my skin is very shiny that morning or not) and lastly, I apply my mineral veil that I apply with my flawless face brush. Sometimes I do apply my mineral veil with a kabuki brush but then I always follow up with the flawless face brush. This brush finishes my face! I use the brush with or without makeup on the brush to smooth out the makeup that I already have applied. This brush is vital to pull the makeup all together!
Rated 1 out of 5 by kellz Awful brush - sheds so much, I'm surprised it still has hairs attached
I figured bare minerals would have high quality brushes since the foundation products I use are great. But this brush never stops shedding. I've been using it a little over a month now and every day the bristles get all over my bathroom sink, my clothes and my face. Haven't had a chance to find a better brush supplier yet so that's why I'm stuck using it still. If this was a $5 brush, this quality MIGHT be okay but since it was $28, this is unacceptable. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

This is the worst brush I have ever used. I thought I was being overly critical, but I'm glad to find others were having the same issues with this brush. I was SO excited to try this make up. I've been using the drug store versions of the mineral powder, so I thought I'd try the original... This brush literally felt and sounded like a straw broom being raked across my face. The brush didn't allow the powder to be spread well. I am very fond of the EcoTools brand of brushes. They are great brushes at a great price. I think I'll be keeping them!
Rated 3 out of 5 by hhalford8990 Works well for a while
This brush works well the first few times you use it but sheds quite badly and can get itchy after some time. I've had the bristles fall in my eyes while running it over my face. Not very pleasant.
Rated 1 out of 5 by heatherleigh782 Not worth the money.
From day one, this brush has always made my skin itchy. At one point I thought I was allergic to the make-up, and just thinking of that made me sad. If you find that your face is itchy and you want to scratch it off, switch it up and use the Soft Focus Face Brush. So much better!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Holly24 Horrible
I really can't believe they are still selling this brush, it's that bad. It is too large and dense and PAINFUL for full face powder application. No matter how you wash it it never softens and when you use it it scratches your skin. Oh and it sheds. Really dislike this brush... will probably be throwing it away soon, not sure what else to do with it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DawninCA Full Flawless Face Brush
I purchased this great brush almost 6 months ago. It is soft and fluffy, picks up my foundation well, buffs on wonderfully.
I have to say that there have been many reviews that say it sheds, but I have not witnessed any shedding from this BE brush or any of my other BE brushes for that matter.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cateye616 Fairly Awful
I got this brush in the getting started kit. I did not realize that it was made out of goat hair. I am allergic to goats. Which would explain why I get itchy when I put the foundation on. Now I realize that it isn't the foundation's fault. It also sheds. And when you wash it, it smells awful. Like wet goat (as would be expected). Don't buy this. You could probably buy something much cheaper that would work much better.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LITERRY buy another brush
This brush is horrible, the pieces fall out after every application. I tried washing the brush to see if it happened because it was new and the same thing happened after I wash it. It makes you have to pick bristles of your face. the best brush I have purchased is the soft focus brush I have been using it for 2 years and it is still good.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MandaS Disappointed ...
I have a couple other Bare Minerals brushes (a few for eyeshadow & 1 for concealer) which work great, so I expected the same quality with this one. Unfortunately, the bristles fall out ALL THE TIME! it makes me pretty hesitant to buy any more face powder brushes from Bare Minerals!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom314 Best brush next to the flawless face brush
I use this brush daily, in combination with the flawless face brush for my radiances or just a touch up. Love this brush. It's so soft and smooth holds the makeup really well and gives you a flawless coverage to make you feel and look amazing. It's not irritating, just try it to make sure your not allergic to brush, is my tip. Other than that definitely get this brush for you your kit the brushes don't shed either, it's from not washing them. By washing them as they say to do keeps them very soft and helps apply your makeup flawlessly. Defineately pick up this brush for your collection, you'll love it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by pomantics Now I know why my face itches every time I appy
This came in my kit and did not mention it was goat hair. I think for those of us allergic it should be mentioned LOUDLY!!! Here I was thinking it was my makeup and was not going to be able to use it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Melody1 Terrible brush
If you're anything like me, you will quickly tire of having to lint roll your clothes, worse, pick the bristles out of your eyeball when they fall out. Love bareMinerals, but HATE this brush. Don't buy it. If you bought a kit that contains this brush, plan on needing to invest in a better one.
Rated 4 out of 5 by makeupbabe Good product
it gives a very good finish it also sheds every now and then but blends my make up so well one of my favorite makeup brushes it's a bit price but is worth the money
Rated 5 out of 5 by xoxo love this brush!!
I've had this brush for almost three years and it is still a great brush! I need full coverage to cover acne scars and this is the only brush that has worked for me. Yes, it does shed, but I don't even care about that because overall it is a great brush and it has still stayed the same after three years of using and washing it!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by azooeydejesusgirl Full Flawless Face Brush
Like its smaller counterpart, the Flawless Face Brush, I have a love/hate relationship with this brush. On the one hand, it provides great coverage for my MATTE foundation; it blends it well into my skin and gives me the flawless, medium-coverage look I want. On the other hand, it does shed quite a bit; also, after washing it, it loses some of its integrity and fans out.
Overall, this brush does what it is supposed to do; I just wish for a staple brush in their collection that the bristles would be a little more comfortable - maybe with synthetic bristles.
Rated 4 out of 5 by VickiMcB Great brush; didn't work well w/ READY foundation
I LOVE this brush... but I use the READY compact foundations, so this created a "hole" in my foundations as I would use it. Which is okay, but now that I've hit pan, its a pain to get the foundation on the brush evenly without ripping chunks out of the foundation READY compact. So, while I love the amount of coverage this brush provides, I think it is much more compatible with the containers of foundation. I don't really want to use the Precision Face Brush, as that's too thick of an application for me. So, I guess I have to deal witht he way this wonderful brush annihilates my READY compact.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LongKoolSityWoman save your money!!
I spent $28.00 plus tax for this brush that sheds all over my face and the handle fell off!! I do not use make up every day so I really expected it to last more than a couple of months!! Save your money!!
If there was a negative rating box for this product, I would give it a -5!!

I can't believe this is $28! I have never had such a horrible brush! I can't even put on my makeup without the brush hair getting all over my face, shirt, etc.! I would love if I could get a credit or be allowed to return my brush so I could get something else. Please stop selling this brush, and if you're thinking about buying this DON'T!
Rated 1 out of 5 by lmoni Terrible!!!!
This is an awful brush. I have had it for 3mos and it sheds terribly!! It came in a kit I bought. Wish I had know about the return policy when I bought it from a BM boutique. I would have gotten something different. I do not recommend this to anyone and sincerely hope BM takes this out of their starter kits.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Neko B.E. BRUSHES
It's so unfortunate that this brush comes in the kit, let alone exists at all. It drives me crazy when I see the worthwhile products a brand can churn out, then send this worthless brush to everyone. Synthetic hair, such as Taklon, is usually your best bet versus an animal hair brush. I would trust the reviews on here as far as brushes go if you're uncertain. This Full Flawless Face Brush gets one star from me because it's rough and sheds on every use. And because you can pay for one the same amount with reviewers raving about it. It should be discontinued now and forever.
The Brushes in this line are impressive, with almost as many options as makeup artist–driven lines such as M.A.C. Unfortunately, many of them use hair that isn’t as soft as it could be, or they aren’t shaped as well as others. Among the best options are the Precision Liner Brush ($12); Soft Focus Liner, and Soft Focus Shadow brushes($22-$24); *Blending Brush ($18), *Flawless Application Face Brush ($22), *Eye Defining Brush ($16), *Tapered Shadow Brush ($14),*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush ($18), Eyeliner Brush ($12), and Crease Defining Brush ($18).
*Blending Brush is made of pony and goat hair, but seems to be a quality exception.
*Flawless Application Face Brush is made of goat hair. Works, but sheds enough to upset users, and most would rather use a kabuki brush anyway.
*Eye Defining Brush is made of pony hair, but no reviews have stated it sheds at all.
*Tapered Shadow Brush is made of goat, ox and pony hair, no reviews claim it sheds.
*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush is made of pony hair. From the praises, this looks to be a must-have.
*Crease Defining Brush is made of goat hair. No shedding, no complaints.

I received this brush in my start kit, along with the flawless face brush and full coverage concealer brush, which I have had for a little over a month. The full flawless brush is just okay. Yes I have lost a few hairs, but nothing like the flawless brush, which is so bad, I don't use it at all. This brush is okay, but yes I am having a shedding problem as everyone else is. Glad that all were part of the kit, because two out of three, I won't be using. Concealer brush is the only, so far, that seems to be holding up, but then again, it doesn't get used daily.
Rated 1 out of 5 by JLyn1 Sheds horribly and hurts!
I sure wish I knew what brush I could use for blush that doesn't shed horribly or cause scratching pain to my face! This brush is just awful and I have not even owned it for a year. For this price, I would expect much better quality. Disappointed is an understatement.
Rated 2 out of 5 by mom2mia4 Disappointed
I received this with a starter kit....and my review is the same as most!! Worked well at first then sheds and the bristles aren't soft at all!! I have to pick all the tiny hairs off my face!!! It's annoying! I emailed the company and they claim this shouldn't happen, and they would send me a new brush....but not until I send mine back and wait for the new one..! In the mean time how do I apply my foundation?? They understood my predicament but promised I would get a new one as soon as they've received mine. Needless to say I can't be bothered, and will buy a new one at Walmart and see if its any better. Just unfortunate for a $28 brush, the complaints seem all the same and they would fix the problem and know that I'm not making this up in order to get a new brush that I got 2 months ago...I forgot to mention that's how long I've had it!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by MerryJingle Shedding Brush
This brush sheds really bad. After applying foundation it takes a few minutes to pick all of the bristles from my face. I take a blow dryer and blow my clothes in hopes of removing them all. I don't have animals, but after applying makeup each morning it looks like I am covered with animal hair.
Rated 1 out of 5 by justmyreview don't use this brush
This brush came with my get started kit and i wish i could return just this brush. It sheds little brush hairs on my face, which stick to the makeup and i have to pick them off while also trying not to mess up the makeup i just applied. Plus it's pretty rough. This morning I finally used a different brush, which is very soft, and it made a world of difference!! No more shedding and so much softer. Everyone, get a different brush!!!! You will be so much happier.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MM1319 Sheds BADLY
I cannot stand to use this brush. I've been using it for 7 months now and am DYING for a new brush. Even after proper cleaning, the brush continues to shed. The little blonde hairs end up in my long dark brown hair and are impossible to remove. Definitely do not recommend!
Rated 2 out of 5 by HelloGracie Time to move on
Got this in the starter kit when I first started using bare minerals a few months ago. It worked great (had some shedding) and then I eventually had to wash it because of the makeup that built up. I feel like it all went downhill after that. After using it a couple times the hairs were really course and itchy on my face and it sheds all over my shirt and face after each use. Still provides a decent coverage but not worth all the hassle.
