Perfecting Face Brush
Good match for the BareSkin Foundation brush
I bought this brush when I purchased the BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and have only used the brush with this foundation. I was amazed when I used the brush along with the BareSkin foundation on how well it was able to blend evenly - when using the correct amount.
The only negative about the brush is the difficulty cleaning it. I found that after a week or so, the brush was not blending as well as before and figured it out after wiping the brush on a dry washcloth.
However, while I love this brush, I tend to try and refrain from buying Bare Minerals make-up brushes. every time I've purchased one of the brushes - in store at a Bare Minerals boutique, Ulta, or Sephora - they thin out & lose their hairs gradually over a short time span. This is especially found in the brushes received - when purchasing online - in Bare Minerals makeup-kits & ordering online by itself VS. buying one in store. This caught me off-guard as well as confused.
This is my first and foremost best and successful brush purchase with Bare Minerals & I Iove it, not to mention its the perfect pair for the BareSkin Purely Brightening Foundation to achieve a natural, even, radiant complextion.
Not a soft brush..
Brush may have been effective if fibers are longer. Very hard on skin. Expensive brush for sitting in a drawer. Unhappy purchase but lost my receipt. Much better softer foundation brushes out there...
Love it except for cleaning
This brush is fantastic for all but cleaning. The little reservoir area really helps distribute the foundation quite nicely and I LOVE the coverage and overall result BUT cleaning is a pain. I've never been able to get the water to run fully clear but figured I had used enough soap in it that germs & bacteria should be gone by then... Let's face it, my life cannot halt so that I have enough time to clean a brush.
I have used this brush probably 4-5 times per week since May and haven't had any issues with it losing bristles or anything. Because of the cleaning issue, if this brush does wear out, I will try using something like the precision face brush and seeing how that works with the foundation before purchasing this again.
Good brush. When I put the foundation on it I actually do an X on both cheeks and a line on my forehead and then spread it around. Otherwise I feel like I get all the foundation on one side and then I have to use more.
Not sure it's necessary.
I have been using the foundation for several months now and I find it's the best ever! However, I'm not sure the brush is necessary. I already had several brushes including the Precision brush which works perfectly to blend the foundation. Because of the price, I am reluctant to try it. Also based on some of the other reviews. My final verdict is that if you already have the precision brush, don't waste your money.
love bareMinerals but this brush has no shelf life
I am contacting customer service and will update post after resolution. Love all bareMinerals products. Their application brushes are amazing, however the new perfecting brush for the liquid makeup does not hold up. I purchased in May. By mid-July noticed lose bristles. It is now August and it is no longer usable. Bristles pull out in large clumps. Hoping to get a response from customer service that is as perfect as their product. Will repost the results.
Love this Brush
I was not originally going to purchase this brush because I have so many, but I'm so glad I did. It complements the new foundation so well that other than concealing under my eyes, its the only one I need to use! So soft and gives great coverage with very little foundation. Highly recommend!
This brush is very nice and there is only ONE thing that really kept me from giving it 5 hearts -- CLEANING! Because you hold the brush upright and drop the liquid DOWN it gets very deep into the bristles. I have spent several 30 minute sessions on this brush and cannot get all of the makeup out. That is where germs, etc lie. PLUS when you get water down there, there is a possibility it will not dry properly and mildew.
Other than that the brush feels like SILK and FLAWLESSLY disperses the makeup.
Works Well with bareSkin Foundation
I bought this brush when I recently bought my first bottle of bareSkin foundation. It's a little pricey - almost the same price as the foundation itself, but it does seem to be working well. The bristles are concentrated but still soft. I don't know if you NEED to use this brush with this foundation, but it does work well.
The Perfecting Face Brush is PERFECT!
Of all the brushes in my collection, this one is now my favorite. Very little waste, make-up goes on smoothly (watch the video of how to use it and do what it says!) Highly recommend it.
