Refillable Buffing Brush
Takes getting used to, but works good
This item does take some getting used to and to get the initial powder down into the brush, but once you get it flowing and master it, it works good. I've not had any problems with leakage of the powder. I only wish it was a tad bit smaller for my purse. I did take it through the security/ screening process at the airport last week, with no problems or searches. Will continue to use for the convenience, but recommend BE work out some of the bugs in the design before recommending it to others.
At first I was also very disappointed with this item as well. So on my next visit to BE, i mentioned by disappointment to the sales associate & with a simple tap on the counter and release of product build up i was able to get much better results.
Great idea, but…
I liked the idea of a quick and easy way to reapply mineral veil, which is a great product, when I am out. The first disappointment was the size of the product–hard to tell from the onscreen image. Too big and bulky to pop in a small purse. The next was the difficulty getting the powder to the end of the brush. When I tapped too hard in frustration, the brush flew off its holder and powder spilled everywhere. I agree that this product should be recalled. You need to re-engineer the brush to make it shorter and more compact (like the gold one on your Shiny New Toys web page?), perhaps with a removable bottom cover to prevent the powder holder from leaking.
I have used them for several months and have not had any of the problems previously noted. I use three everyday for fountain, warmth and mineral veil. And I keep a mineral veil in my purse. Also, I got several and gave them as gifts and have only gotten positive comments. I wish they would make an option with a smaller brush for eye shadow.
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.
