        Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

        I get the foundation my first time and for the price i get a ultra brush not this one and of course i didn't like it a year later a went for a full coverage foundation the girls at the store give me this and the liquid and i was BUT this are not full coverage the first thing she ask did you use this brush??? And i said nope and she said thats why, you will need this brush for the powder foundation so it can apply correctly and is true is like the powder glue to this and then to your face with my other brush is more like powder everywhere.

          my instant fave

          By Sondra

          from California

          Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

          After trying a blending sponge and being frustrated at not ever feeling it was clean enough, I thought I'd try this brush for my liquid foundation and so glad I did! I don't normally spend so much on my brushes but this was worth a shot. It IS a process to clean it because the bristles are so packed in there but that's actually why it applies so evenly. I know it's not what the brush is intended for but it works like a charm

          Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

          I bought this to use with the airbrush foundation. It applied well on cheeks, forehead, chin, & nose but I found it too big to use on the undereye area. It worked well with the foundation because of the design of the two products. I had to return the foundation so I returned the brush as well.

          Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

          I like this brush for the Amazonian clay powder foundation but I have very small hands and it's a little hard to maneuver sometimes. Also I find it hard to use it around the bridge of my nose/ eye area. Otherwise, it does a good job

              What is the diameter across the top of the brush? I recently invested in a very expensive Kabuki brush that is too large to fit in my powder container.

                A:

                This brush was designed specifically for use with Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, but it works well with any and all pressed or loose powder formulas. For liquid formulas, we would instead recommend The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:

                A:

                Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush features dense bristles to provide fuller coverage, so we typically don't recommend it for bronzer or blush application. A better suited brush for bronzer application may be the The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush:

                A:

                This brush features densely packed, firm bristles that make it ideal for fuller coverage such as with foundation. For setting powder application or sheer application of products, instead use a fluffy brush with less dense bristles such as IT Brushes for ULTA Live Beauty Fully Flawless Powder Brush #202:

                A:

                Once weekly, use a gentle hair shampoo (such as baby shampoo) or brush shampoo, and using cool water, gently work a lather into the bristles. Rinse with cool water until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also use a brush cleaner spray to spritz your brush in between uses to keep it clean until its next shampoo (recommended for acne-prone skin).
