      Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

      When I purchased the Tarte foundation, I tried really hard to resist buying this brush. I have a large collection of foundation brushes and figured I'd have one that worked. Not to mention the price of this and the fact that I have purchased very expensive brushes only to be let down by them.

      So, after using the foundation with a variety of brushes, I found that I wasn't getting the finish that I wanted. After getting a coupon that could be used on this, I decided to go for it.

      I've been using it about 2 months now and I have not been let down! It really does give you a smooth, flawless and airbrush like finish. I apply the foundation to my face by dotting it all over with my finger and then go in with the brush to blend out. I only use it with my Tarte foundation, so I can't speak on how it works with any others (and I have a few others I use).

      If you do purchase the tarte foundation, I really do suggest using this brush as it really does make a difference.

        Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

        This brush pairs perfectly with the Amazonian Clay foundation. I originally tried the foundation at another make up retailer and the lady applying it to me used her fingers....not good. I ended up not purchasing it because it did not turn out at all like I hoped. However, when I went to my Ulta and picked up this brush and the foundation, I fell in love! It is now my very favorite foundation! I think this brush makes application so easy, smooth, and flawless. It does not shed at all and is super easy to clean.

                I have always used my fingers or a sponge to apply foundation, no more! This brush is amazing making a little foundation go a long way blending to perfection! The brush is an investment, however, you need the right tools to do a good job! Worth every penny.

                  My sister bought this foundation brush for me for Christmas, and all I have to say about it is that it's absolutely PERFECT! The brushes are thick, dense and amazingly soft. I've used this brush with multiple foundations - high-end and drugstore - and it blends them all perfectly! It's got a shorter handle which I actually really enjoy, and it's super easy to clean. This is by far the best foundation brush I've used. It is a little pricey but it's SO worth it, especially if you're like me and wear makeup every day! Love love love this product. Great job Tarte!

                    Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

                    I read all of the reviews on Ulta before purchasing this bamboo foundation brush. I bought it to use with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. I was on the fence about buying it due to the cost, but after looking at it and feeling it, I decided to go ahead and purchase it and I'm so glad I did. It has very densely packed bristles that are so super soft, and really is a pretty brush. Yes, it costs more than I really wanted to spend, but it is sooo worth it. You will not be sorry when you get this home and try it out. It does not absorb a lot of the product like some foundation brushes do. I dip it into the foundation and brush it on my face in circular motions. It really gets in every crack and crevice, even covers well right underneath the eyes. I provides a very smooth finish with no lines like some brushes leave. I have had no shedding with it either. It does say to keep the bamboo handle dry when washing it, but that is not an issue with me, I love it! It provides smooth full coverage and I really have nothing bad to say about it. I think it would work well with any liquid foundation, I have not tried it with powder, so I cannot comment on that. I am 44 years old with many, many age spots, and this brush was very effective at covering all of them flawlessly. I have nothing bad to say about this product, I just find it perfect for applying my foundation and I absolutely love it, it is well worth the money. I may even purchase one for my 24 year old daughter, as she has tried it also, and loved the results. It is super soft and works so well on my combination mature skin. I highly recommend!

                      Love this brush! Works great with liquid and mineral foundation. I do have bigger pores on my cheeks and it doesn't really disguise them so I take a sponge to the area with more pores just to help blend it a little more.

                          I love this brush. I cannot express my feelings for this brush enough. I got this as one of my Christmas presents, and I cannot thank my mommy enough ;) Lets face it, I'm a teen--I don't have the best skin in the world. But seriously, you would think I did when I use this brush! My foundation (mac prolong wear + L'Oreal true match) blends FLAWLESSLY, matte finish, 100% of blemishes are covered, where as using another brush I have to use concealer. This foundation brush beats every other brand including MAC. #sorrynotsorry (;

                          If you didnt catch my point-- BUY IT. YOU WILL LOVE IT!
