Problem Filling Buffing Brush
I love the buffing brush (as I do all of the BM products I have tried.) However, I don't really like filling it. Trying to get the BM Foundation out of the container with the new Click/Lock/Go lid is very frustrating. Otherwise -- the brush is fantastic for carrying with me when I am away from home.
No Problems Here!
I have 2 of these in my bag - one for Foundation, and one for MV - and I love them. I've had absolutely NO leakage. LOVE it.
Can't figure out how to use it
I just saw that other people are having issues with the design of this brush and I'm also having the same issues. I can't get the product to go down the brush. I suppose I'll look at other reviews on tips to use this but the instructions that are given with the product do not work at all.
refillable buffing brush
what a disappointment. You either get a clump of minerals that come out or none at all.
The brush sheds also so you have to pick off hairs after using. To refill the brush you have to unscrew the bottom and the minerals drop out and get all over. A big mess if you wear black pants to work**warning** dont waste your money!!
I just want more info on this buffing brush. I have no where else to write my problem. Just recently I purchased the buffing brush, which I thought would be a good idea to carry around for instant touch up; however, my problem is after I removed the plastic lid from my bare minerals jar, it is still covered with another plastic lid which I think is NOT removable. Can someone help me.
I love Bare Escentuals, but this product is a dud - the applicator leaked powder all over my makeup case - I wouldn't buy it again.
If your brush doesn't work give this a try.
The first day i received this brush it made me extremely frustrated, like most reviews on the refillable brush i could not get it to work or any powder to come out, it got to the point where I was just going to throw it out. I later realized that I wasn't using it properly.
Well on the brush it dials, (close - open - buff) and the instruction tells you to turn the dial to open and shake to get powder into the brush then turn dial to buff and then buff. But after carefully examining the brush i realized you has to turn the dial about 340 degrees from close. This cause the access way for the powder and lets the powder to actually flow through, if you look into the back of the brush before you put the power in and turn the dial 340 degrees from close you will know what i mean, then once you get enough powder on the brush turn the dial to buff and buff. At the beginning you may need to shake a little bit but once it gets flowing your good to go.
It gives a control of light to full coverage which is great and doesn't leak in my bag. If only it was a little smaller. Over all its good for quick touch ups and quick application without the mess but not very portable to take out for clutches or small purses. I love the fact that the brush detaches for easy cleaning. I hope the will help out alot of the frustrated girls =)
I had no problem getting the product to work, and mine worked well. HOWEVER, it's too large for what I think most women are looking for in a purse product. Yes, it may work well to take on a trip instead of your regular product. I think, though, most of us are looking for a product to carry in the purse for quick touchups to specific "spots" throughout the day. This is not it...for me. It's too large to just give you a concentrated touch up. AND if you wear suits or other more professional wear, it is a definate that you will get it on your clothes, leaving you to try to wipe it off. Also, I've had the bottom come unscrewed twice in my purse, making a huge mess.
A few suggestions for BE to consider:
1- Give us the same idea in a much smaller brush...along the size of the concealer brush.
2- Put a "snap on" cap over the end that protects the product vial.
Love the idea, back to the drawing board
I was so excited to see this product offered, I couldn't wait to purchase it. Once I got it home I was very disappointed to find nothing comes out threw the brush. I have tried so many things from sticking a toothpick through both the brush and the tube making sure it was clear, I've shaken it so much the brush head has fallen off - still no luck getting any product out. I've used the sunscreen since it was introduced and love that dispenser, it works great. Why can't the refillable buffing brush work the same?
Sincerely, A very sad customer . . .
