Perfecting Face Brush
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.
Not worth the effort
At first I loved this brush. Coverage was great for first and second application of the bareSkin foundation. Then I cleaned the bruch and it was all down hill from there.
Possibly because this brush is so dense, I cannot seem to get all of the foundation off of it using th BE Well Cared For Conditioning Shampoo. It also seems no matter how may times i rinse this brush, I cannot get all of the shampoo out and it takes at least 2 to 3 days to dry, even after I soak up excess water with a paper towel. As a result, I have had this product over two weeks and used only 4 times.
My other brushes take 1 to 2 minutes each to clean. After 10 minutes, this is still not getting clean.
After cleaning this brush, when I apply the makeup, there are noticable streaks and an un even distribution of product. At first I thought this was because of something I was doing wrong when cleanining it, but after looking at the online videos on how to clean my brushes! and speaking to a boutique rep, I am assured this is not the case.
Like I said initially I loved ths brush, but it is too much maintenance.
I think the idea of the well is awesome but the head is too small. It takes me forever to buff in my foundation. Cool concept but not really worth it in the end
This brush was the best thing I ever did. It helped to perfect the flaws on my face when using foundation and it made everything so much easier. I love to use bare minerals products and will definitely try more things in the future. You are all so good at helping to perfect ones image. Thank you for the amazing products!
I bought this brush a few months after I started using Bare Skin...and I wish I would've gone with this brush initially. I use less foundation and it really does blend it in well. I used my old Sephora brush vs. This one and I love it. There's no bristle fall out and it's super soft. It doesn't saturate my brush as much either. I definitely recommend this brush.
not for me
This brush provides good , even coverage, but leaves bristles on my face. The shedding is terrible. I have to pluck the loose bristles before each use. Then it still sheds.
I love this brush, but . . .
I have been using this brush for less than a year and now the bristles are all falling out. The brush, when functional, gives good coverage - it's small enough to fit in my facial crevices, yet large enough not to take forever to cover my face. I just called the local boutique and they are going to replace the brush. We'll see what happens with this brush. I have never had a problem with bristles falling out of a Bare Minerals brush and I have a TON of all kinds!
I didn't think I needed this
I try not to spend money on things that aren't absolutely necessary, but the sales clerk told me that every person she sold the new broad spectrum serum to came back for the brush if they didn't get it at first, so I got it. I wouldn't have another brush to use, since this is liquid, and I use it every day.
Love it but...
I love this brush because it makes putting on liquid foundation a breeze, and no messy fingers but my brush is less than one year old and big clumps of bristles are falling apart!!! I wish you could fix it!
Never had I thought to use a brush for liquid foundation use. So easy and don't have to get my fingers messy. I just wish the brushes weren't so expensive.
Great at first...
This brush worked great for about 2 months, and then bristles started falling out after that. At first it was only a few, which then turned into clumps. I've tried to get all the loose bristles out before using it but then when I go to use the brush, I have bristles all over my face, body and bathroom. Definitely not worth $28, and very disappointing that I have to buy a new brush in less than a year.
I think it brush works amazing with the makeup you're supposed to use it with. But the bristles are always falling out of it. Buy the time I'm done applying, I have bristles all over me, the sink/desk. I think at some point I'm going to have a bristless brush!
Worth the extra money!!
Combined with the new bareskin liquid foundation, this brush is amazing! The little indention makes it super easy to apply the product onto the brush and then onto your face. I am always left with a streak free, lightweight, buildable coverage (which I am in love with). I think it is defiantly worth it to purchase the brush along with the foundation because it was specifically designed with the bareskin foundation in mind. It's also very soft and doesn't shed!
Love this brush
I bought this brush with the bareskin foundation and absolutely love it! It's super soft and does a great job of providing full coverage to your face. As always, bareminerals doesn't disappoint! A must-have while using bareskin in my opinion.
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.
My favorite foundation brush
I love this.... It my favorite foundation brush I've ever owned. I love how it minimizes the amount of foundation I use, but I can add a little more, and layer where I need more coverage.
Best blending brush
I love this brush, I tried the bare skin foundation with other brushes and this is the best. It blends out the foundation really well and I would recommend buying this with the foundation
I love the liquid foundation and the brush!
I already wrote a review on the brightening serum foundation that accompanies this brush. I recently took before and after pictures but was unable to attach them to my other comment, because I had already submitted it. SO i'm making a new comment on the brush so all of those who like to read reviews can see how well it works!
I applied the Pure Brighting Serum Foundation with the Perfecting Face Brush, then dusted some B.M. Powder Foundation and blush overtop.
This brush is awesome!
I purchased this brush along with the bareSkin foundation & it is great! It applies the foundation evenly onto my face, no streaks. I am very pleased with the ease of the use of this brush, great pair with my bareSkin foundation! Thanks Bare Minerals!
The Jury is still out....
I'm not sure if I love this brush or not... I work in the cosmetics industry and we just received these brushes. I feel like it gives a very complete coverage...but stippling with it can be difficult as it tends to leave empty circles on the skin where the foundation well holds the make-up. It was very time consuming to clean and that is something I have to do several times a day, as all my brushes must be sanitized between clients.
I understand that you are supposed to buff more than stipple with this brush, but i feel that either way it was time consuming and kind of messy.
The brush is very dense and very very soft. It looks awesome and there isn't really anything else like it on the market for general pop... I want to love this brush. I really really do! Especially at a price of under $30... I'm just not sure. The jury is still out.
However yesterday was the first day that I used it. If , after getting used to it and using it a few more times on a few more clients, i change my mind i will absolutely revise my review.
All in all, i think if you need a very complete full coverage look, i.e. lots of redness hyper pigmentation, acne marks to cover, this brush could be your new fav product. But if you're just looking for a new foundation brush you may want to skip this one as the option to put the liquid foundation on in a soft, sheer to moderate coverage is almost impossible with this brush.
