Refillable Buffing Brush
The concept of the product is great, i like the convience of it. However it leaks everywhere. Even if you double check that it is closed it still by the end of the day is all over. I like it significantly better than the other to go items they have but it still needs refining.
Just a little patience....
So I had the same problem, where I could not get the foundation to come out. It just takes a few for it to fall down the bristles and once it gets moving, it works just fine. I just didn't like how frustrated it made me and how the instructions did not tell you that. But it wasn't clogged, and it provides good coverage.
Very disappointing product
I was delighted when I saw this - finally a non-messy way to carry my foundation when I travel! The reality: I have NEVER been able to get foundation to come out of the brush: 5 or 6 grains at a time and that is only after vigorous shaking, tapping, threatening and begging. This only whetted my appetite for a refillable brush that really works. Back to the drawing board, BE, and please come back to us with a working product!
Not quite right
I have a lot of trouble getting minerals out of this brush. Once the brush head even fell off while I was shaking it.
great idea, but totally missed the mark
I wasted so much makeup trying to fill the jar...I haven't even tried using it yet. I wish the other reviews were posted before I bought this.
Barely anything comes out that's usable, only dust everywhere you don't want it. I can only seem to get any powder on my hands and bag, never my face.
Good idea. Doesn't work.
This is a great idea for every day and for travel. However, it doesn't work. Even when you try to follow the settings exactly, the makeup doesn't come out and it also clogs. Too bad, it could really be a convenient tool.
Needs to be recalled
I got the Bare Minerals starter set sometime in March and absolutly loved the makeup. Everyone complimented on how my face just glowed. I was using a different brand of make up that had a cream to powder finish. It was great esp for on the go except that it was getting old. I figured I'd buy this product since I really like the foundation and it would be perfect for my travel bag (which I use everyday for work). It's messy getting the powder into the vial. The biggest problem is using the device.
When you turn the dial to the open position, nothing comes out - I even removed the brush and powder vial to see if there was something blocking the hole where the powder should come out of - the problem was that the stays closed and only opens once the dial turns past the buff marker (which according to the instructions is when the powder is supposed to stop coming out). I'll keep the product and just use it carefully when the dial is turned past the buff mark (so the powder comes out) so that the brush doesn't fall off.
If it weren't for the fact that I really like the coverage of Bare Minerals and needed something for travel - I would have returned it back to the store.
