Full Flawless Face Brush
Full Flawless Face Brush
Like its smaller counterpart, the Flawless Face Brush, I have a love/hate relationship with this brush. On the one hand, it provides great coverage for my MATTE foundation; it blends it well into my skin and gives me the flawless, medium-coverage look I want. On the other hand, it does shed quite a bit; also, after washing it, it loses some of its integrity and fans out.
Overall, this brush does what it is supposed to do; I just wish for a staple brush in their collection that the bristles would be a little more comfortable - maybe with synthetic bristles.
Great brush; didn't work well w/ READY foundation
I LOVE this brush... but I use the READY compact foundations, so this created a "hole" in my foundations as I would use it. Which is okay, but now that I've hit pan, its a pain to get the foundation on the brush evenly without ripping chunks out of the foundation READY compact. So, while I love the amount of coverage this brush provides, I think it is much more compatible with the containers of foundation. I don't really want to use the Precision Face Brush, as that's too thick of an application for me. So, I guess I have to deal witht he way this wonderful brush annihilates my READY compact.
save your money!!
I spent $28.00 plus tax for this brush that sheds all over my face and the handle fell off!! I do not use make up every day so I really expected it to last more than a couple of months!! Save your money!!
If there was a negative rating box for this product, I would give it a -5!!

I can't believe this is $28! I have never had such a horrible brush! I can't even put on my makeup without the brush hair getting all over my face, shirt, etc.! I would love if I could get a credit or be allowed to return my brush so I could get something else. Please stop selling this brush, and if you're thinking about buying this DON'T!
This is an awful brush. I have had it for 3mos and it sheds terribly!! It came in a kit I bought. Wish I had know about the return policy when I bought it from a BM boutique. I would have gotten something different. I do not recommend this to anyone and sincerely hope BM takes this out of their starter kits.
It's so unfortunate that this brush comes in the kit, let alone exists at all. It drives me crazy when I see the worthwhile products a brand can churn out, then send this worthless brush to everyone. Synthetic hair, such as Taklon, is usually your best bet versus an animal hair brush. I would trust the reviews on here as far as brushes go if you're uncertain. This Full Flawless Face Brush gets one star from me because it's rough and sheds on every use. And because you can pay for one the same amount with reviewers raving about it. It should be discontinued now and forever.
The Brushes in this line are impressive, with almost as many options as makeup artist–driven lines such as M.A.C. Unfortunately, many of them use hair that isn’t as soft as it could be, or they aren’t shaped as well as others. Among the best options are the Precision Liner Brush ($12); Soft Focus Liner, and Soft Focus Shadow brushes($22-$24); *Blending Brush ($18), *Flawless Application Face Brush ($22), *Eye Defining Brush ($16), *Tapered Shadow Brush ($14),*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush ($18), Eyeliner Brush ($12), and Crease Defining Brush ($18).
*Blending Brush is made of pony and goat hair, but seems to be a quality exception.
*Flawless Application Face Brush is made of goat hair. Works, but sheds enough to upset users, and most would rather use a kabuki brush anyway.
*Eye Defining Brush is made of pony hair, but no reviews have stated it sheds at all.
*Tapered Shadow Brush is made of goat, ox and pony hair, no reviews claim it sheds.
*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush is made of pony hair. From the praises, this looks to be a must-have.
*Crease Defining Brush is made of goat hair. No shedding, no complaints.
Full Flawless Face Brush
I received this brush in my start kit, along with the flawless face brush and full coverage concealer brush, which I have had for a little over a month. The full flawless brush is just okay. Yes I have lost a few hairs, but nothing like the flawless brush, which is so bad, I don't use it at all. This brush is okay, but yes I am having a shedding problem as everyone else is. Glad that all were part of the kit, because two out of three, I won't be using. Concealer brush is the only, so far, that seems to be holding up, but then again, it doesn't get used daily.
Sheds horribly and hurts!
I sure wish I knew what brush I could use for blush that doesn't shed horribly or cause scratching pain to my face! This brush is just awful and I have not even owned it for a year. For this price, I would expect much better quality. Disappointed is an understatement.
I received this with a starter kit....and my review is the same as most!! Worked well at first then sheds and the bristles aren't soft at all!! I have to pick all the tiny hairs off my face!!! It's annoying! I emailed the company and they claim this shouldn't happen, and they would send me a new brush....but not until I send mine back and wait for the new one..! In the mean time how do I apply my foundation?? They understood my predicament but promised I would get a new one as soon as they've received mine. Needless to say I can't be bothered, and will buy a new one at Walmart and see if its any better. Just unfortunate for a $28 brush, the complaints seem all the same and they would fix the problem and know that I'm not making this up in order to get a new brush that I got 2 months ago...I forgot to mention that's how long I've had it!!!
This brush sheds really bad. After applying foundation it takes a few minutes to pick all of the bristles from my face. I take a blow dryer and blow my clothes in hopes of removing them all. I don't have animals, but after applying makeup each morning it looks like I am covered with animal hair.
don't use this brush
This brush came with my get started kit and i wish i could return just this brush. It sheds little brush hairs on my face, which stick to the makeup and i have to pick them off while also trying not to mess up the makeup i just applied. Plus it's pretty rough. This morning I finally used a different brush, which is very soft, and it made a world of difference!! No more shedding and so much softer. Everyone, get a different brush!!!! You will be so much happier.
I cannot stand to use this brush. I've been using it for 7 months now and am DYING for a new brush. Even after proper cleaning, the brush continues to shed. The little blonde hairs end up in my long dark brown hair and are impossible to remove. Definitely do not recommend!
Time to move on
Got this in the starter kit when I first started using bare minerals a few months ago. It worked great (had some shedding) and then I eventually had to wash it because of the makeup that built up. I feel like it all went downhill after that. After using it a couple times the hairs were really course and itchy on my face and it sheds all over my shirt and face after each use. Still provides a decent coverage but not worth all the hassle.
I first started to use my starting kit and from day one it was just shedding like crazy! I had it all over my foundation cap, face, and clothes. And the brush was so rough on my face. I am so disappointed with the brush! I might as well go and buy a completely different brush. Very unhappy with this product.
This brush distributes product evenly, but it sheds and the hairs are difficult to pull off of my skin. Doesn't look so good to have little hairs on your perfectly made-up face.
I use this brush with my mineral veil and I love it! I've had the brush for about three years now and I always get a face that is picture perfect.
Horrible. Don't buy!!!
I got this as part of my Starter kit. It was nice for the first month or so, but then it started to shed like crazy! I've had it now for less than a year and I spend more time trying to wipe the little hairs of my clothes and face, than actually applying the foundation. I have another brush I bought from CVS that I use for my bronzer, which works so much better!
great coverage for any use
The more you apply the better it covers. I have never applied more then 3 coats so I dont know if it gets that masky weird look and feeling. I usually apply 2 coats and spot treat my blemishes which given me a light clear and glowing look.
Sheds too much and is not soft at all
I'm disappointed in this brush. It sheds way too much, I have to lint roll my clothes to remove all the broken bristles when I'm done putting on my makeup. Also, the bristles are really rough on my skin, I feel the scratchiness for about an hr after I'm done putting my makeup on. I do wash it weekly in the BE brush wash, I was hoping that would soften it up, but its been 2 months and still sheds and is harsh.
Unfourtunately I have to be honest and say this is the only thing I haven't loved by BE. This brush sheds like crazy! I have a very hard time getting the little left over hairs from the brush off my face, clothes and even my hair line after using it! Not to mention the crazy mess it leaves in my bathroom sink! I wash all of my BE brushes every 2 weeks as recommended with the BE brush cleanser and I have noticed that this brush is just not as soft as the other BE brushes I have....out of all of the other BE brushes I have this is the ONLY brush that sheds this way and feels ridiculously coarser than all the others (which are incredibly soft!!)......I unfortunetly WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this brush and I have to say I will never spend the money to replace the one I have now, as a matter of fact this brush is going in the trash! I can't take all the little hairs all over and the itch I'm left with after using it! Sorry BE but this is NOT your best brush by any means :(
This brush is so soft and it feels so smooth on your face. It has great coverage and holds the makeup so well! The only thing I would recommend is cleaning it at least once a week. I didn't clean it for over a couple months and it just doesn't feel the same anymore even after cleaning it. So when they say clean it every 2 weeks, DO IT! I have learned my lesson now! I will be purchasing another one and this time I will clean it when recommended!
What it has done for me!! :)
I am so happy with this Product!!! I Have found the applicator Flawless Brush stands up to it's name of Flawless!!!! I can now apply the powder evenly and well covered!!!! I Have enjoyed and will enjoy using this Brush I <3 it!!! Hope U enjoy it and it works as well!!! Have a Wonderful Day!!! <3 ~_~
I liked this brush when I first got it but after having tried the soft-focus brushes at the store, this brush was actually kind of scratchy on my skin. I've had it for about 4-5 months now and desperately need a new one. While it still applies my foundation fine, the brush itself is falling apart. I have little brush hairs all over my bathroom! I use the brush and it just sheds like crazy. I end up getting brush hairs in my eyes and all over my clothes. It's horrible! I take care of my brushes really well and use the brush cleaner but now need to buy new brushes. I don't know if I can afford to keep buying new expensive brushes every few months!
I personally love this brush i use it for the original foundation, and it really gets everything and hides "imperfections" from your face. My favorite brush
Not so great
So I got this brush in the starter kit. 2 months later (max) it was shedding horribly and lost is shape completely. I had the same problem with the buki brush (it fell apart completely and that replaced it). And yes I used shampoo and followed the directions! For a $28 brush I feel like it was a let down. Maybe they use cheaper quality in the starter kits but I would be afraid to buy another one and waste my money. (Love the makeup though!)
Looking for a new brush
This brush actually hurts my face while I'm using it. Everytime I use it. I clean it often, hoping it will soften up but it hasn't. It sheds a lot too. (Looks like little red hairs all over my shirt) I just want to find a SOFT brush that doesn't irritate my skin. The starter brush... I hate it.
Best brush ever!
This is truly an amazing brush! I use it for my foundation and warmth, couldn't imagine using any other brush now! I love it so much I've ordered 2 more, one for my blush/all-over radiance and then another just as a back up. The one I have now sheds slightly, but not bad, I don't even know if it's possible for a brash not to shed, so the little it does shed isn't bad. I did have some issues after washing it with the brush shampoo though, it seemed to be fluffier and didn't seem to cover my foundation as well like it used to before I washed. I ended up just putting some rubberbands on the bristles for a few days and now it works just like new! Love it!
Shedding is getting annoying
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers. When I first got this brush I loved it, it worked great and I was so impressed with the coverage it provided. As the weeks have gone by the shedding has gotten worse and worse. I am getting 8-15 brush hairs on my face that I have to remove with tweezers of use another brush to sweep them off. If I wipe the brush on my hand it will shed many more into the sink and they get on to my clothes as well.
I am not sure what has changed, I have the BE brush cleanser and use it every 1-2 weeks. I am not sure if I should try buying a new one and see if it does the same thing or move to a different brush completely. I love BE, but am disappointed in this product.
I had such high hopes for this brush when I bought my customizabl starter kit. Honestly, it as a horrible brush. It has shed all over the place and I end up with brush hairs all over my face and counter. Plus, it is extremely irritating on my skin. I apply my foundation with the Heavenly Face Brush(which is amazing!) and my skin will be even, then I apply my warmth with the flawless application brush, and finish with my mineral veil and the full flawless brush which makes my skin red and irritated again. Honestly I just need to get rid of this brush and find something else for blush, highlighter, and mineral veil.
Great at first...
I bought a starter kit with Bare Minerals and I have to say I had my ups and downs with the whole line. I loved the brushes and after learning how to properly use everything in the kit (the DVD honestly isn't as helpful as it could be) I fell in love with Bare Minerals.
I loved this brush for the first month and could see how it would retail alone for that much. HOWEVER... after a month it started shedding HORRIBLY. And after the first time I washed it, I feel like it's ruined. I know how to clean my brushes and I have other high-end brushes that I cleaned on the same day that I cleaned this brush and my other BE brushes. All of them are fine and in good shape, but this brush (and the flawless brush) lost its compact quality (the bristles hold less product now) and it sheds ridiculously now, and the brush end is much "fatter". Also, the hairs feel coarse now. I don't know how this could have happened, but nothing I do now can make it the same.
It's unfortunate that I have to give this brush a low rating, because at first it is the perfect brush for this product, but since it doesn't last long at all, it's just not worth it. Hate to admit it.
*Notice in the photo how it is much more wide than the display photo. It did this over time.
