      Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

      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!

                        This brush is really good because the bristles are short and hold the foundation so well and you don't waste product like you do using a kabuki or regular foundation brush. Love love this brush it is worth every penny.

                          Finally! A short-bristle brush for buffing foundation! I spent at least 2-3 years looking for one like this, so the price didn't phase me when I found it. This is a brush that has lived up to my hopes for it. I'm a pressed powder, baked, or a loose minerals girl and now my foundation is applied better with this brush. Couldn't be happier with it. Thank you Tarte!

                                I normally do not splurge on brushes, but I am so glad I did for this brush. It makes my powder so much easier to apply and does not appear cakey.

                                    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:

                                    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:
