Buff & Go Brush
I would not recommend this brush to anyone. The fabrication and materials used are quite cheap. I will be returning. Very disappointed by bareMinerals in this case.
Perfect little to-go brush
I have a little bag that I keep in my purse for touch ups throughout the day, and this is a fantastic little addition. I'll admit I use it for everything - foundation, warmer, blush, and mineral veil. This & a small concealer brush is all I need. So convenient! And it's super soft, which is a plus...and being retractable I don't have to worry about this one getting smushed in my purse like I worry about my concealer brush.
And just for the record, no, I don't love it more than my full size brushes but for being a brush on the go, this is perfect.
Perfect for purse!
I love this little retractable brush. I know it was made for mineral veil, but I use it for foundation coverage too. It is soft and easy to clean, plus so very perfect for my makeup bag. You can not go wrong with this little wonder!
Soft brush, love that it's capped!
This is my favorite BE brush. I use it for my foundation, and it ensures that the power goes on smoothly and covers all my imperfections. The bristles are soft, and they're super easy to clean. I love the cap. I can slip it in my makeup bag without having to worry about the bristles getting damaged or broken off. Every girl needs one of these for travel at least...I have 2!
Not just for Mineral Veil...
I got this in a kit for Mineral Veil, but put it away because I had other brushes. I found it again when I was looking for a brush to put in my after-gym makeup bag. I have been using this for the Ready foundation, and it is perfect! it is soft and densely bristled, and picks up the foundation like a magnet. Definitely a keeper!
Great for on the go!
I love the design of this brush! It is great for on the go, it is antibacterial and doesn't get smushed in my makeup bag! My only complaint is that sometimes you have to play with the tube a little when you pull it up to put it away to prevent the cap from bending the bristles.
I have tried just about every foundation brush out there and never found one that I love till now. It covers flawlessly and, the best part, it doesn't leave those little brush hairs everywhere!
Soft as always and portable too...Love it!
I bought this today at my local store that carries BE products. I took pictures too so others can see how portable it really is. I'm not sure why this product has an overall score of 3/5. I have dual purposes for this brush. I used my mineral veil with this, just to see what it would do and it doesn't do an overkill on my face at all and I have a Golden Dark skin tone. Secondly, I can foresee myself using this with either my matte or original foundation. I DO have a soft focus face brush that I would use for my mineral veil, a flawless application brush for my Warmth All Over Face Color and for foundation I can use this tool. It's really soft, portable and for me, it was worth getting.
Little Tip/Advice: Make sure you retract the neck of the brush ALL THE WAY DOWN. This way you get the FULL bristles all the way out of the brush so that you can get the full effect and use of this brush. The neck of the brush is the part that the brush comes OUT of when you protract (push up) the bristles which happens when you retract (pull down) the neck of the brush.
This is the only bush I use for my foundation application. It give awesome coverage and make pores dissappear. It also cleans up really well.
Not quite right
I picked this up at the BE boutique in the kit with the 'measured' mineral veil.
In general, I'm a huge fan of retractable brushes; I think they hold their shape, etc. better than 'normal' brushes. So I bought the kit specifically for this brush--I had a 2/3 full MV at home that I was using.
It's true, the bristles are very soft and comfortable to use.
It's also true that the brush is the same diameter, etc., as the Flawless Face Brush.
And unlike some other reviewers, I haven't had a problem the mechanism.
For me, the problem with this brush is that it's far, far too short. The length of the retractable barreland the bristles isn't sufficient to pick up and distribute product as effectlvely as other BE brushes; so the product doesn't seem to buff on as well.
