    Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

    I use this product to apply my Too Faced powder. My old brush didn't even get close to this one! The best coverage and now I feel like I'm not wasting my nice makeup. I don't have to use as much because this brush helps you get amazing coverage.

          Love that the bristles are short so it collects/wastes a lot less powder than a regular brush.

              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.

                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).
