The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

Item 2241952

Find in Store-

A revolutionary foundation brush that is not only supremely soft, versatile and durable for use, but also made of sustainably harvested bamboo.

This foundation brush flawlessly blends and buffs makeup for a perfectly airbrushed effect. Vegan friendly.
Dispense a quarter-size amount of foundation to the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount using the Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush and brush onto your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending out. Achieve a flawless, even complexion by soft circular buffing sweeps.

To clean brush: Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water, avoiding the handle. Apply a small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water and continue rinsing until water runs clear. Gently squeeze excess water out of bristles and place on a level surface to air-dry before next use. Clean brush as often as needed.

        Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

        I use bareminerals original foundation. I was in search of a brush to use and tried multiple brands from ELF and real techniques to IT and other high end brands. This brush blows all the others out of the water. It applies the foundation perfectly and evenly. It is very soft on the face and does not cause any irritation (like some of the baremineral brushes do). I bought a back up of this brush as well and will continue to repurchase.

            Applying a small amount of Tarte liquid foundation on the back of my hand and using this brush to give me full coverage, gives me as flawless a finish as I could wish for at my age.

                      This brush is amazing. I've been using the IT foundation brush and noticed the IT brush left my foundation looking cakey. The Buffer brush leaves a flawless finish, no cakey or unpolished look. I find that a pea size amount of product goes a long way! I've gotten several compliments on my makeup looking that it's been professional done. I give this brush 5 stars.

                      I kind of like this brush but then I don't. I like how it first applies to the skin, how the brush is soft, and how it's perfect for the thick Amazonian clay foundation. This brush doesn't get you a full coverage face, unless you take your time to buff everything out. it takes minutes to perfectly buff everything out and there are still some streaks on the skin

                        Can I use this brush with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea water foundation? I was wondering this since it's a watery fluid. Or should I just get the brush that comes with the foundation?

                          This brush features cruelty free, ultra-plush bristles ideal for applying liquid foundation formulas like our Amazonian clay full coverage foundation SPF 15. The airbuki brush features more dense & compact, cruelty free bristles that are great for buffing on weightless powder foundations. The airbuki brush was also designed to fit perfectly in the applicator of our Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation.
