Full Flawless Face Brush
Best finishing brush
I always use my flawless face brush as the last step in my bareminerals makeup routine. I only use bareminerals moisturizers and makeup on my skin!!! I first apply moisturizer, then my complexion rescue or bareskin (depending on what type of coverage I want), then loose mineral foundation in original or matte (also depending on coverage I want and whether my skin is very shiny that morning or not) and lastly, I apply my mineral veil that I apply with my flawless face brush. Sometimes I do apply my mineral veil with a kabuki brush but then I always follow up with the flawless face brush. This brush finishes my face! I use the brush with or without makeup on the brush to smooth out the makeup that I already have applied. This brush is vital to pull the makeup all together!
Awful brush - sheds so much, I'm surprised it still has hairs attached
I figured bare minerals would have high quality brushes since the foundation products I use are great. But this brush never stops shedding. I've been using it a little over a month now and every day the bristles get all over my bathroom sink, my clothes and my face. Haven't had a chance to find a better brush supplier yet so that's why I'm stuck using it still. If this was a $5 brush, this quality MIGHT be okay but since it was $28, this is unacceptable. Would NOT recommend to anyone.
This is the worst brush I have ever used. I thought I was being overly critical, but I'm glad to find others were having the same issues with this brush. I was SO excited to try this make up. I've been using the drug store versions of the mineral powder, so I thought I'd try the original... This brush literally felt and sounded like a straw broom being raked across my face. The brush didn't allow the powder to be spread well. I am very fond of the EcoTools brand of brushes. They are great brushes at a great price. I think I'll be keeping them!
Works well for a while
This brush works well the first few times you use it but sheds quite badly and can get itchy after some time. I've had the bristles fall in my eyes while running it over my face. Not very pleasant.
Not worth the money.
From day one, this brush has always made my skin itchy. At one point I thought I was allergic to the make-up, and just thinking of that made me sad. If you find that your face is itchy and you want to scratch it off, switch it up and use the Soft Focus Face Brush. So much better!
I really can't believe they are still selling this brush, it's that bad. It is too large and dense and PAINFUL for full face powder application. No matter how you wash it it never softens and when you use it it scratches your skin. Oh and it sheds. Really dislike this brush... will probably be throwing it away soon, not sure what else to do with it.
Full Flawless Face Brush
I purchased this great brush almost 6 months ago. It is soft and fluffy, picks up my foundation well, buffs on wonderfully.
I have to say that there have been many reviews that say it sheds, but I have not witnessed any shedding from this BE brush or any of my other BE brushes for that matter.
I got this brush in the getting started kit. I did not realize that it was made out of goat hair. I am allergic to goats. Which would explain why I get itchy when I put the foundation on. Now I realize that it isn't the foundation's fault. It also sheds. And when you wash it, it smells awful. Like wet goat (as would be expected). Don't buy this. You could probably buy something much cheaper that would work much better.
buy another brush
This brush is horrible, the pieces fall out after every application. I tried washing the brush to see if it happened because it was new and the same thing happened after I wash it. It makes you have to pick bristles of your face. the best brush I have purchased is the soft focus brush I have been using it for 2 years and it is still good.
I have a couple other Bare Minerals brushes (a few for eyeshadow & 1 for concealer) which work great, so I expected the same quality with this one. Unfortunately, the bristles fall out ALL THE TIME! it makes me pretty hesitant to buy any more face powder brushes from Bare Minerals!
