      Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

      Best brush I've used so far- out of the 10+ I've tried. Works great with powder over liquid foundation, or with just powder alone. Love it!

      Blends out liquid or powder foundations perfectly! The bristles are very dense and the brush its self is very compact and great for traveling!

            Gives the most even coverage of powder foundation I have seen. Can use with any powder foundation. Compact size makes for easy travel, even in a clutch purse.

              I bought this because I hated my Bare Minerals full foundation app brush. I felt like that one just didn't put the powder on my face.
              With this brush it does! It gets into all areas of my face! I love it! So glad I found it!

                    I bought this specifically for the tarte clay foundation and I'm so glad I did. The short bristles hold the makeup so well. It's soft and worth every penny.

                                  This brush features densely packed, firm bristles that make it ideal for fuller coverage such as with foundation. For setting powder application or sheer application of products, instead use a fluffy brush with less dense bristles such as IT Brushes for ULTA Live Beauty Fully Flawless Powder Brush #202:

                                  You can certainly use the Airbuki brush to apply loose and pressed powders from other brands of cosmetics!

                                  Once weekly, use a gentle hair shampoo (such as baby shampoo) or brush shampoo, and using cool water, gently work a lather into the bristles. Rinse with cool water until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also use a brush cleaner spray to spritz your brush in between uses to keep it clean until its next shampoo (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                                  This brush was designed specifically for use with Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, but it works well with any and all pressed or loose powder formulas. For liquid formulas, we would instead recommend Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:
