Full Flawless Face Brush
For me, this brush sheds a LOT. I spend more time picking the bristles off of my face than actually applying the makeup. I recommend the angled brush. I believe it's also a Buki brush, but for some reason, it feels so much softer than this brush and doesn't shed nearly as much.
I normally love most BE brushes, but this one began shedding the moment I used it, and hasn't stopped in three years. I use and clean it regularly (I know how to care for my brushes), but it has continued to shed and break off like crazy. Note: this is my second brush of this kind because I thought the first one may be a 'lemon.' Nope. Same result. I would order a different kind.
Could be better
I watched the DVD that came with my Bare Minerals Starter Kit and the swirl tap buff thing just wasn't working for THIS particular brush lol. I like the softness of the bristles, even though they don't hold up TOO well, but it's still a decent brush. I can still grip it well which is nice. I think it's the spaciness of the bristles that gets me. If it was more compact perhaps like the multi-tasking brush or the handy kabuki (which I have yet to try but just ordered it today lol), then it may hold more product therefore less time wasted on the application process. Decent brush, but the bristles need to be stronger, but still keep it soft because it feels good on the face and make the bristles a bit more compact. :-)
Tickles on my face
Since BE make-up is so wonderful, I'm disappointed that I must rate the Full Flawless Application Face Brush with a 1 out of 5. There's nothing worse than feeling a tickle on your nose, then on your chin, then on your fore-head, and any other place on your face after applying your make-up. I wish I could love this brush as much as the other reviewers; however, after I use this brush, I ruin my make-up and my day. I'm constantly trying to remove the little tiny hairs from my face and sometimes I have to rub hard. I'm including a photo of my bathroom sink after rubbing the brush on my hand to remove loose bristles. I'm deeply disappointed with this brush.
Flawed Application Face Brush
I received this brush in my starter kit - within three months, (despite cleaning regularly with the recommended products), the brush was shedding so badly I could no longer use it. Small pieces of brush were getting all over my face, clothing and vanity area. Would have expected better quality from this company.
The Only Brush I Use
This brush provides the perfect amount of coverage for me. Many people rave about the Buki brushes, saying they need a lot of coverage. For me, the Flawless Application Face Brush is just right. The tapered shape holds up well after shampooing and I have only lost about 2 fibers in the entire time I've had it.
For those saying their brush is shedding uncontrollably, I think they may have gotten a fluke. I'm sure they could exchange the brush and the new one would perform perfectly.
Love this brush!
I haven't had this brush very long, but wow it has already surpassed my expectations! It is so soft just like all the other bareminerals brushes and gives me amazing coverage! You will fall in love with it after one use. It is a must for every brush collection.
Love this Brush!
Pretty much anything I have bought at BE I have been satisfied with, this brush included. The Full Flawless Application Face Brush came with the Get Started kit and applies the all over foundation very nicely: clean and even. It also works well with the mineral veil to highlight my cheeks and add little radiance. I have not had the problem with shedding like other customers have. Overall a nice, I quite like this brush.
I choose to use this brush over the medium brush because I require more coverage for my botchy skin. But it really does the job. Its soft and you can tell its all natural. I really like it a lot. All brushes wear out though so be prepared to buy another one someday.
Just not soft enough
The bristles on my brush hurt if I press too hard on my skin. I use the brush cleanser they have and still it is a rough brush. I wish I had a softer brush that would deliver the product as nicely.
