Q & A

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost perfection First this brush does shed but I haven't owned a brush that doesn't. I've owned expensive MAC brushes and cheap ELF ones, they all shed at some point. With that being said, this brush is wonderful. Idk if I would like it for just anything but it works perfect for the original foundation. Shedding does not bother me that much especially if it works well 06/09/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by I like this brush, but it sheds so much! I really liked this brush for the first month or two of use. However, it started shedding a LOT after that and the bristles have started to break. I've only used the brush for about four months and I still like the brush for the coverage it provides with the Matte foundation, but the amount of shedding and breakage is ridiculous, especially for the cost. 04/20/2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by I SEE A LOT OF REVIEWS THAT ARE HORRIBLE I cannot believe a company such as Bare Minerals would not replace the brush when the entire head fell off the handle! I am about to pass on my brushes to my daughter & happened to find the customer reviews. During my initial orientation on all the products the sales associate spent quite some time talking about the wonderful quality of the brushes. I'm disappointed in all the products in general & the company for not standing behind their brushes. 04/06/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hit or Miss I have owned several Flawless Face brushes since I first started with BM around 2005. The first few were relatively thick, and soft. They shed lightly and I have used them for nearly 11 years now. I also recently purchased a synthetic version in a Christmas set that was quite lovely. BM always has good deals on synthetic brush sets around the Holidays, and Mother's day. If you hated the natural fiber version, I would suggest purchasing a limited edition set if you can find one some place online. Now, to be candid about my recent experiences with these brushes, they are quite horrible. As stated above, I am 11 years older than when I first started using BM products. I find the customized 8 pc. starter kit to be a great deal, so I usually purchase one when I want to try some new products. When I compare my old Flawless Face brush to the new ones from they seem to have lowered in quality. I know that at times it appears some products are just unlucky defectives, and they took a return at the Boutique for a brush that shed more than my cat. However, the newer brushes seem to be scratchier and they shed A LOT more than I am accustomed do. Again, if you're in the ball park for an upgrade look into the synthetic fiber brushes. It gives good coverage, and is a great multi-tasking brush to have in your collection. 03/11/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by terrible brush I received this brush as part of a kit, and had to stop using it after just a few uses. I couldn't figure out why I kept getting hairs in my eyes, then I realized they were bristles from the brush. Even a freebie should have lasted longer than this did. 01/31/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Bought the complete flawless complexion kit and this brush was part. I have had way cheaper brushes that are holding up better. With the low ratings, I wonder why they would make it part of the package. I clean them all carefully but this one just does not compare to others I have. Very disappointed. 01/18/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for applying bronzer! I use this brush to apply my Ready bronzer and it works great! 08/09/2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's OK Got this brush when I started using Bare Minerals about 2 years ago. When I bought the brush, the sales rep told me I can use baby shampoo to clean it, which I have been for 2 years. I lay my brushes flat to dry and do not scrub or do anything harsh with them. The past few months the hairs have been shedding everywhere (my face, my counter, in the makeup). Eventually, the entire head of the brush came off the handle. Had to throw it away. I called the company and they basically told me it's normal wear and tear and my warranty is up; time to get a new one. I would think a $20 brush would last more than 2 years if taken care of, but I guess I'm wrong. Not sure why anyone would spend $20 on a makeup brush that isn't long lasting when you can get one at CVS for cheaper than also isn't long lasting. Just my opinion. While it was in tact, it did work well though. Good coverage, not cakey. 08/03/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by This brush is horrible! After just a couple uses this brush started shedding and breaking off all over my face and body. I have continued to use it though and it has only gotten worse. I hope to find another brush with better quality. I DO NOT recommend purchasing this brush!! 06/05/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Falls Apart I love Bare Minerals but I will never buy their brushes again. I've only had this brush a few weeks and it's bristles fall out so badly that they end up everywhere, including getting into my eyes. VERY poor quality for the price. VERY disappointed. 01/20/2015

Answer: 
I don't think this brush would do a good job with liquid foundation. It is thinner and fluffier with less structured shape to it.

Answer: 
I would suggest using the brush made for the new bare minerals liquid foundation the perfecting face brush, it will help give you those amazing results your looking for , where as the flawless face brush is more for the swirl tap buff application of the creamy powders.

Answer: 
The full flawless brush will give you more coverage. I use it on days when my skin isn't looking so hot, but I use the regular one most often.

Answer: 
The difference is the amount of coverage. The Full Flawless brush is thicker than this so it will put more makeup on your face. I like using the Full Flawless for foundation and the Flawless for Warmth or All Over face colors, which are products that you want to lighter coverage that you can add subtly or build on.

I wouldn't say it's necessary to have both if you're careful with the amount of make up you put on the brush at one time, but for an easy, fast routine in the morning (if budget allows), I've found it's really helpful to have one brush dedicated to each step of applying makeup, so I do use both.

Answer: 
Flawless application is for light to medium coverage and Full Flawless is for medium to full coverage.

Answer: 
I love this one because it is enclosed in the case when not in use. I can actually load it up, seal it, and carry it in my bag for touch-ups on especially long days! I use both: one for foundation and one for mineral veil. I love them both, but espcially enjoy the retractable one.

Answer: 
I have both brushes (from my starter kit). They're both made with goat hair, but the full flawless application face brush is more dense in goat hair, so it picks up more powder and gives you a medium-to-full coverage range. The flawless application face brush is less dense in goat hair so it picks up less powder and gives you a light-to-medium coverage range.

Answer: 
I use the Flawless Radiance brush to apply my mineral veil over my foundation. It gives me a really nice sheer wash of mineral veil, which is what I want. The goat hair of the Flawless Radiance brush is longer in length and less dense, so it picks up a lighter amount of powder.

Answer: 
I like using my Buff-Go Brush for the mineral veil for touch ups during the day or for a weekender. The Flawless Application Face Brush I like to use that for my Warmth. Soft Focus All Over Face Brush is one that I use for mineral veil when I'm putting on my makeup for the first time for the day. Feels great!

Answer: 
This brush probably provides too heavy coverage for mineral veil. It gives a very concentrated coverage.
