    Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

    I am used to Bare Mineral brushes and have had them a long time. I saw these on sale (16 normally) at two for 15. I wish I had bought more. They are a lot more compact than the brushes I am used to, but do a good job.

          The texture and price for this brush is great! I was a little disappointed when I noticed glitter on my hand after feeling the bristles. I have not used this brush on myself yet but it looked like it was used for a finishing powder and returned. Ulta needs to do a better job inspecting returned items! Besides this it is a great brush and comparable to IT Cosmetics brushes.

                          I got the Urban Decay Flushed palette (okay, I got more than one) on the 21 Days of Beauty. After watching several tutorials, I saw how important having the correct brush(es) was. I have an IT set... but, not quite what I needed for the bronzer portion. This was also on sale during the 21 Days and shipped for free with my Urban Decay, since I'm a Platinum Member. Figured I'd give it a shot since the reviews were good. Holy moly, I LOVE it. It's super soft and picks up the powder amazingly well. Hardly any fallout on the palette (which is a complaint in the tutorials for the UD). Hardly any product wasted. Applies beautifully. Very happy. Haven't been too hot on Ulta products such as makeup, but I had bought their retractible Kabuki Brush on an associates recommendation... I don't even know how long ago (years?) and still have it and it's still amazing. So far, I haven't been disappointed with their bushes - at all.

                                We don't make that claim. We recommend cleaning this brush at least weekly for best results.

                              I am purchasing the Ulta Contour Palette & Ulta brushes to go along with it. When browsing thru the brushes I noticed that the Ulta Highlight Brush was completely sold out & unavailable. Can I use the Buffing brush to apply my contour highlighting powder & if not, which other brush would you recommend me using besides the Highlighting brush thats currently unavailable?

                                This brush can produce either medium coverage or full coverage. The smaller the circular motions you buff, the more coverage and more airbrushed finish you will receive.

                                Rather than this brush, which is ideal for powder formulas, instead we recommend using the ULTA Angled Foundation Brush with liquid and cream products such as BB cream. This is a firmer brush, with more compact brush hairs that will apply liquid and cream products much more evenly and precisely:
