Refillable Buffing Brush
Wonderful bush to use
This is the second one I have gotten. Both 1st one and this new one are the same. Easy to take a part and fill with your favitor powder. It real easy to use and to take with you or if you do not have a lot of room for all your make up.
I first used a travel brush through Sheer minerals brand, and when i saw that BM had one I couldn't spend the $30 soon enough. But have not yet been able to use it. Regardless of how much product is in it, or what setting it is on, the product does not come out sufficiently to apply, I have to open it up and use a brush and it's a mess. I wish there was an upgrade available and we could return these.
I've always liked the Mineral Veil, but the powder is so fine that I always have trouble with it flying up into the air when I tried to tap it out of the container. This brush completely solves that problem! I think that the issue a lot of people are having with this brush it that after the brush comes all the way up you have to keep turning it as far as you can to get the powder to come out.
I agree with the comments about how hard the brush is to fill with powder. I think BM should revist that or better yet come out with an already filled container that you can just purchase to screw into the bottom.
Once I got the powder filled and used in only once, I'm back for a second one to leave in my make-up drawer. I think this brush allows me to applied a more even coat of product.
I Honestly Hate this Brush
I received two of these and thought they were a great idea. I read the instructions and followed them carefully however, when the container was filled and screwed back on I could not get the brush to go back down. I tried and tried but it would only turn a fraction of the way to close. I then took the second one I received and tested the "turning" situation. It seemed to work just fine so I proceeded to fill the second brush with product. After completing this task and reading the instructions yet again to make sure I had not done something wrong I was again disappointed. Once filled with product the brush will not go down, close or turn to buffing, it just sits there and will not budge to close. I hate this product in that I tried with two brushes, carefully followed instructions and now I have these two brushes filled with my favorite product that are completely useless and of course, since my brushes do not work, I cannot retrieve the product back. What a waste of time and product.
Hit or Miss
When I bought this product I couldn't wait to try it, I thought it would be perfect to stick in my purse and it use it on the go, especially in the late afternoon to just re-vamp my makeup and make it look fresh again through the end of the day. After I finally was able to add a couple scoops of my foundation to the canister (which was a nightmare to get the plug off my foundation!) and after shaking the fill able brush continuously for almost a minute, the foundation finally came through the bristles in the brush. When I started to buff it on my face, way too much was coming out, it was very uneven and I felt like I was wasting my foundation because there was nowhere for me to tap off the excess, I just had to keep buffing it on my face until I had way too much foundation on. I really wanted this product to work but sadly it doesn't quite come up to par. I'll still use it, just with caution, it'll come in handy in a pinch.
Maybe I am not doing it correctly
I bought this for on the go makeup touch ups and have been disappointed since its arrival. I followed the directions to "t" and stil very very little product comes out on the brush. Can someone in Customer Service help me? Also I bought a max coverage brush and it looks like the bristles have been cut or something. What do I do about getting a replacement?
Very disappointed in this product
I was so excited when this product came out. The thought of being able to apply my foundation on the go and not end of wearing most of it on my clothes made me very happy. I purchased it this weekend and tried to use it but no luck. Very little if any powder came out. I tried several times and even took the powder out and refilled it and still nothing. I think it is a great idea but needs work and also needs to be smaller.
I normally love all the BM products, but I'm very disappointed in the refillable buffing brush. When I first saw this product, I thought wow this will be convenient to carry in my purse, but the make-up gets clogged and will not come out. Even though I'm disappointed in this one thing, I'm still going to buy BM.
Cheap and poorly made
This item was one I was really looking forward to adding to my tools of make-up art. I am picky about my brushes, so for comparison sake., I also got another companies professional brush of the same type.
BE's brush performance was not acceptable. I used it a few times before it fell off the table. Something broke on the interior, the brush head fell off, and it stopped working completely. I cannot even get my product out.
The other brush is still working like a champ, and a lot more has happened to it beside a trip to the floor.
They are similar in price. I am a long time customer and I expect better quality from this company.
