      Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

      After 5 years of using the tarte foundation I broke down and spent a little more for this brush and I am so glad I did. This brush really hold the product and makes application so much easier. I wish I'd purchased this years ago.

        This brush works very well for buffing your foundation to a smooth finish. The bristles are, soft but dense and the brush is designed in a way that gives you complete control over its movement and pressure.

                  This pairs perfectly with the Amazonian clay powder foundation. I tried other brushes with the powder, but it didn't apply as well as using this brush. Definitely spring for this brush if using the Tarte loose powder.

                        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).
