    This is a great brush. It never sheds and it's pretty dense. I bought one at the store and decided or order another one because i use it for my touch ups

              Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

              I like the feel of the brush. The bristles are very soft. It applied my makeup well, however it started separating in the middle which made it unstable when buffing foundation into your skin. I am going to have to glue it back together because at this point it is unusable.

                great coverage with mineral makeup

                By beauty daily

                from SC

                Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

                This brush is super soft and the dense hairs apply the perfect amount of coverage of my Bare Minerals face powder. I don't use liquid makeup so this brush is perfect for giving me the full coverage I need with just mineral powder foundation. Would be 5 stars but the head is a little small so it takes a little longer to apply my foundation. But I still love it!

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

                • Q:

                  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? Thank you I ❤ Ulta

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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:
