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

            I ordered this product off Ulta's website, along with the "Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation", because I was desperate for a new foundation. I LOVE it. It's can be a little bit of a learning process in using the foundation, but the brush is definitely worth every penny. Super soft and gives an even, professional application. Have not used it for blush or bronzer, but I wouldn't be surprised if it made those applications look great too. Glad to have this little guy in my collection!

                Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

                I have the other Tarte foundation brush and loved it. I decided to try this one, because it reminds me of the Face foundation brush sets that everyone is talking about. (with the handles) The bristles are so dense and close together that it gives such a flawless application. It works so well with my liquid foundations, just applying in circular motions. I have combo skin, but it didn't irritate my dry areas at all. TOTALLY WORTH THE PRICE, IN MY OPINION!!

                      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.

                        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:

                        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:

                        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).
