Refillable Buffing Brush
Should have trusted reviews
I saw the reviews of this were mainly negative but I decided to try it anyway as carrying around the full container of foundation is a pain. Unfortunately I can't say that this works. It's pretty easy to fill it up and learn how to use but it takes a ton of shaking to get just a little bit of foundation onto the brush and I still haven't got a usable amount on the end. It also only allows the foundation to fall to one tiny spot in the middle instead of spreading across the brush. I hoped this would be something to place in my purse for quick touch-ups but instead it just sits unused on my counter.
This is great for at-home or on-the-go use
I have two and I'm ordering again before they're all gone...the brush is soft and application is consistently even. It's easy to remove, clean and replace the brush and filling or refilling the applicator is quick and easy. To load the brush for an application, just tap it against your palm until a little product appears on the tip of the brush and you're ready to go - that's it!
Soft and holds powder well
Brush is great for Bare Minerals powder and stays clean in container. I read in another review a complaint about getting powder out of the bare minerals containers. I had the same problem all the way down to taking a hammer and pliers to it. Then recognized the container opens from the bottom. You can pull the bottom section out and it opens right up!
Bare Minerals has not disappointed me to date! Love the product and brushes have been no exception.
Wish I'd looked at the reviews first
I was excited to get this brush, and was looking forward to being able to use it on the go. The brush is nice and soft, that's the only thing this has going for it. First, I couldn't get the foundation case open so I could directly scoop the powder into the container. No matter what I tried. I even considered taking a hammer to it but that would probably explode powder all over the bathroom. I resorted to shaking it out on paper and folding the paper to act as a funnel into the container. Then, no matter what I tried, I couldn't get the powder to come out through the brush. I shook it, tapped it, re-screwed the container, nothing worked. Testing on a plain white sheet of paper confirmed that it indeed wasn't dispensing. I've tried everything I can think of. Big disappointment and regret for not reading all the reviews first that warned of this very thing. It's the only time I've ever been disappointed in a BE purchase.
Good, but could use improvements
Bought this because I had been a huge fan of this brush when it was the sun protection spf30 product which was incredible. It does seem to work better with the thinner, lighter formulas but I love the travel convenience of this product. Don't discontinue just make it better!
idn't quite meet expectations
I love the design of this brush, except that it isn't as soft as the others in the bare minerals line. In addition, I have to shake it to get the product out and it does work...to a certain extent. The distribution of the product is a small spot in the middle of the brush, so one has to be careful when applying, otherwise the foundation/mineral veil goes on in more concentrated spots and can be uneven.
I like that it has a cap so I can take it with
worst purchase ever
This is the first time I have ever been disappointed with a Bare Minerals products. The application brush is amazing itself but the way it distributes the foundation to the brush is terribly uneven...either too much or not enough.
Worst bare E. Purchase ever :(
No wonder it was on such a mega sale.... I filled it up per directions however no matter how hard I try and how long I have left it upside down.... It just doesn't out put much foundation AT ALL!!! :( I've pressed that button a millions times.... Still no go. I LOVE bare minerals/escentual products.... This was by far my least favorite purchase from them. Bummer.
Best dispenser ever!
I really dont understand the bad reviews!! It is easy to use and prevents spilling the product. Its easy to remove the brush to clean it and it is easy to fill! I love it an have 3 of them. One for moneral veil and 2 for my different shades of foundation! If you have a hard time removing the product, remove the brush hrad and shake the minerals into the brush. This is the perfect travel and take along brush! Please dont discontinue it. Would like to see one for the loose blush too!
