Perfecting Face Brush
bristols fall out
I too as many loved this brush for a few months and now I just get a face full of brisols....not sure, as many, if I want to spend the money to replace it. I have never been disappointed in any of your products.
Mixed Feeling on This Brush
I loved this brush.....that was until the shedding began. I purchased it in March of 2015 always washed it as described in the videos but in June of 2015 I noticed some shedding now we are in July and the shedding is so bad I'm throwing it out! I love the coverage this brush gives, hides the redness on my face but all the shedding all over my face and clothes is awful. Overall this brush is great if your company can find a way to stop the shedding, I do want another but don't want to spend this kind of money on something that will probably shed again in 3 months!!! This picture below show all the shedding and all the unevenness in the fibers in the brush
Poorly made brush
I have used Bare Minerals since I was in college and was excited to use this brush with the foundation. I was pleased with the product until after only a couple of months the bristles started to fall out. It became so bad that I had to stop using the brush. It is poorly made. too bad!
DO NOT Wash This Brush
Save yourself from all the problems that come along with this brush. I first got this brush & foundation for Christmas 2014, and didn't end up using it until Mid January, when I knew how to use/care for the product. I suffer from acute acne, but have very sensitive skin, and like to keep my brushed clean, as I clean them after every application. With this brush I did not see the need for that as often. So shortly after me using the brush, I felt the need to clean it after all the makeup collects in the well. After I cleaned it, doing as told by Bare Escentuals, once dried, I noticed shedding. It was bearable for the first month or two, but when it because a process to remove a lot of bristles off my face, it became a problem. After only 3 months of using the brush, I had to stop. It was sad, because I really loved the flawless coverage it left on my face, almost looking airbrushed. I would love to buy another one, but am hesitant it will do the same thing. So, until a solution is made, my business will not be here!
I love this brush. I rarely buy brushes, but WAS very satisfied with my purchase, until the shedding began. A few bristles here and there, but now I cannot even use it. The shedding interfere with the use of the brush. A recall should be issued, and brushes should be replaced in my opinion. A brush, at this price should last longer than a year with proper care. I am hopeful they will stand behind their products.
Such a great brush!
I own 2 of these brushes. One I use for my BareSkin, and the other I use for thick concealer application over my pores and redness. It works amazing for both purposes, and I love it!
For me, this brush is too small and it takes more effort to apply BareSkin to the face, it's like using a mini brush. I don't think the reservoir is necessary either, I'd rather use a flat brush with more surface area like the Precision Face Brush.
Excellent brush for liquid/serum foundation
Though it was a bit expensive, I made sure to get this brush with the BareSkin liquid/serum foundation. It really does make a difference. I have had no issues cleaning either of the two brushes I have, though it's possible to tell the newer one from the older one.
This brush can be a bit hard to clean compared to other brushes, but it's easier if you clean it more often (two to three times more often than a powder foundation brush). To dry, I set mine down vertically with the bristles resting on a paper towel and leaning up against something, and have had no issues getting it to dry relatively quickly.
Won't last long
Having owned so many other BM brushes, this one was great at first. Sadly, after the first wash, the shedding quickly began and before I knew it, I was basically applying falling brush hairs instead of makeup on my face. Worst brush I've ever owned, definitely not worth adding to your collection.
Excellent for doing make up but cleaning… What a pain
I haven't got it perfectly clean since I bought it. It's absolutely impossible to keep clean, all the foundation goes very deep in to the brush. I don't even know if I want to use it anymore since I feel like it's not hygienic at all.
The reason for three stars is that putting foundation with this brush is great! It's easy and makes your skin look perfect.
So putting foundation with this brush earns five stars but cleaning it only one, if even that.
