The Ulta Buffing Brush can be used for a variety of makeup applications but is ideal for mineral and face powders. Use Ulta Brush & Sponge Cleaner to regularly clean your brushes.
Gently buff your powder onto your face working from the center of your face outward and upward using small circular motions. The smaller the circular motions, the more of an air-brushed look you will achieve.

    Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

    I use this brush to buff out my Clinique chubby stick contour, and it works amazing! I also use it less frequently to buff out ny highly, and again it works perfect. Really happy with the brush! The brisels are very soft and haven't seen any brisel loss.

              Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

              I just purchased this brush two days ago, even though I didn't really know what I would end up using it for. I'd considered using it to blend my contour but it's too big for that since I have a small face, but I randomly decided to spritz it with some water and use it to apply my Kat Von D Lock It foundation and oh my gosh! Ever since I tried the Beauty Blender I've used nothing else but this brush makes my foundation look so amazing that I don't know if I'll reach for my BB for it anymore. It says on the packaging that the smaller the circles are that you create the more airbrushed the effect and they weren't lying. My makeup looks natural, flawless, I no longer experience any caking or uneven areas and it makes my foundation look extremely sheer without hindering the coverage. I'm so happy with this purchase that I'm definitely going to buy this again when mine becomes too brutalized to use, which I don't see happening any time soon with how great the quality is.

                This is the first brush I have bought. I got a lot of free ones in kits and they would lose bristles and not very soft. This has not lost any bristles yet

                  This brush is great for blending and applying powder or liquid foundation in exact locations. It is stiff which makes the circular blending motion easy to control and quick to complete.

                  • 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

                      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:
