Rated 2 out of 5 by StefyH22 Sheds horribly!!
The coverage this brush provides is great. I have acne prone skin and I like the way this brush covers everything. The problem, however, and the reason why I gave it 2 stars, is that I had to spend more time trying to pick off the hairs that have shed off and onto my face, than I actually do applying my foundation. I realize brushes will begin to shed over time, but this one actually shed like crazy from the first use, which is not a problem I'd ever had with other BE brushes. For that reason alone, I feel like this was a waste of my money and wouldn't recommend this brush.
Rated 2 out of 5 by NJ-NY Don't like it
It sheds. Feels like it's made of needles, not goat's hair, on my skin. I don't look forward to using it on my face at all. Not painful but not enjoyable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by way2BE Little Brush with TONS of potential
I love this brush and have used it every day for the last 5 years (at least) and until now, it has not shed at all. I use it to apply my foundation and it works perfectly by adding just enough coverage. It's also a great blending brush if you find you go a little too heavy on the blush or bronzer. Also, unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually appreciate that this brush is compact, it means it can travel just about anywhere and not take up a load of space. Sadly, after 5 years of using it...the bristles have begun to come loose from the bottom. I am not walking but RUNNING to my nearest Bare Minerals store to replace this little guy and retire the old one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnna T. This is one of my many favorite BE brushes. I always go to this one for applying my foundation. I really like that it doesn't have a handle. It makes it so much easier to buff my face to the way that I want the makeup to be.

BE makes the best brushes! This brushes is soft and fluffy and large. I can cover my whole face very quickly with little to no effort love it:)
Rated 5 out of 5 by LizS Love the Kabuki brush!
With this face-friendly super-soft brush it is easy to swirl, tap and buff your way to perfection. The bristles pick up a lot of foundation so it is easy to get moderate to full coverage. It is also great for dusting on mineral veil. I keep a couple of these brushes so when I wash one, I've still got another one to use while the first one dries. Great for people like me who don't have perfect complexions and like extra coverage. I have had these brushes for years and they are holding up great. A little Well-Cared For brush shampoo and they are good to go. The short handle is ideal for me and makes it easy to buff. If you like a long-handled brush better, the FULL flawless face brush will give you a similar result. The Kabuki brush is a top 10 product for me. If I could only have 10 items in my makeup bag, this would be one of them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lahop2it Love this Brush
I'm fairly new to Bare Minerals, but I'm not new to using make-up brushes. I've never owned a make-up brush I like as much as this one. I love that it doesn't have a long handle. The bristles are so soft. My skin is fairly sensitive and this brush doesn't feel scratchy like others I've had in the past. The other thing I really like is that it doesn't lose bristles. The size is also great. It fits the whole lid of the Bare Minerals and picks up all the foundation in a few swipes. It has cut down the amount of time I spend on my make-up. I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by goldenbird I love this brush, the coverage is amazing and it is very soft. It doesn't itch and feels like fluffy clouds. Yes, it does shed a little bit but I've never had brushes not shed so to me it isn't a deal breaker. If it fell apart completely, then yes, deal breaker. But this isn't the case! I really love this brush and if you need a large face brush, this is for you. I use it for my foundation and mineral veil daily.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tory1643 I like it
This is a pretty good brush. I love how big and fluffy it is. Unlike some of the other BE clients, I like that it doesn't have the long handle. It it easy to hold and travels well. It does provide good coverage. I will never give up this brush! I've had it for years, and it still seems brand new. I've not had any shedding problems, as someone else mentioned. I recommend this brush to anyone who doesn't have perfect skin and wants a quick foundation application.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Susette I am very disappointed in this brush. This brush started shedding from the first use. After applying BE to my face, I then have spend time plucking the brush hairs from my skin. If I could give it no stars, I would.
Rated 4 out of 5 by J.E.S My Second Favorite of the BE Face Brushes
First, I'd like to address the other two users who were wishing this brush had a handle. A consultant I once spoke with at a BE boutique told me the Full Flawless Application Brush is the same brush as the Full Coverage Kabuki...just with a handle. I was needing to replace my first FC Kabuki and was debating between it and the Full Flawless. The consultant pulled out the two and, ultimately, I stuck with this one. I've had issues in the past with the handles pulling away from the brush head and, while I could just glue it back together, this seemed to be the better decision.
I say this brush is my second favorite because the Heavenly Face Brush is actually my all-time favorite. That one, however, doesn't play well with the Matte Foundation so I have had to switch.
The bristles with this brush are SOOO soft and really hold the foundation product well. I especially like that the size of the brush head nearly picks up all the foundation in one swoop of the lid. I get full, broad, even coverage with this brush and couldn't ask for more!
I have also not had the shedding problems that have been reported previously. One or two fall out occasionally but it's definitely not something I consider to be a "problem." I take excellent care of my brushes (in part because I cannot afford to keep replacing them) and haven't had any major issues in using them.
Rated 3 out of 5 by June Bug Bristles fall out
I don't know if the brush I have is a fluke, or if they're all like this. Every time I use it, some of the bristles fall out. I end up having to pick them off my face or from the jar's lid. (I'm being gentle with the brush). My other BE brushes don't have this issue- thus the 3 star vs. 1 star rating. I love my other BE brushes.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FloraMac Someone already wrote EXACTLY what I think...
but I like to underline it, hoping someone up in the BE headquarters takes it as a hint...
This brush is fantastic, super soft, no shedding at all (trust me, I've had this brush for 3 years now and if I say no shedding at all, I really mean it!)... BUT it'd be better if it had a long handle... let's say... a large version of the Handy Buki...
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lesflo94 I really like the coverage I get when I use this brush on the larger areas of my face (cheeks, neck, forehead). It is very soft and comfortable to use, but I would like it even better if it had a longer handle, like the buki brush. That is the only reason I didn't give it 5 hearts. I use the buki brush around my eyes and nose because of its more compact size and easy to grip handle.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tballtn I love the full coverage brush! I've tried other brushes but this one covers the best for me.
