      Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

      This brush has an amazing soft but dense feel to it. I've never liked using brushes for foundation but this one definitely changed that tune. I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to my beauty blender.

            I rarely leave product reviews...but this brush is seriously amazing. I use it with my Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation and I have never had my makeup look so good. Perfect coverage. Airbrushed finish. You need this brush! :)

              Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

              I have never used a foundation brush before. I have used sponges. I cannot believe the difference this Tarte Foundation brush makes on the smoothness of my foundation application. The brush helps foundation go on evenly and quickly. I use this with Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage foundation.

                        I know this item is pricey...and I am a thrifter through and through. But this brush is worth every penny! It is soft and plush, no shed and it applies foundation like a dream! I use Rimmel Stay Matte foundation that is on the thicker side. With a foundation brush, this product went on streaky and needed blended with a sponge. As a busy mom of 2, I don't have time for that. Enter the Tarte airbrush finish foundation brush. My foundation goes on smooth, evenly and steak free every time. There was no learning curve. The box instructions are spot on and simple for anyone to follow. The bamboo handle feels a bit awkward, as it's big around but after using it a few times you get used to it. LOVE this brush!!

                        Comments about Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

                        I use this brush to apply my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. This brush allows to to blend the foundation really well and provides a good finish. I've used other brushes previously and they didn't work as well as this Tarte brush. I use less product with the Tarte Airbrush Finish Foundation Brush. I find that using this foundation brush makes the foundation sit better on my face than other brushes. It is wonderful.

                        My only issue is that it is somewhat difficult to clean the brush. I have acne so I clean my brushes daily to prevent further irritation/breakouts. After washing with a mild soap and rinsing in warm water, there is still residue/foundation on the middle portion of the brush. So far, this hasn't caused any extra breakouts, but I'd prefer to be able to wash it off completely. I think it's because this brush is much denser, especially in the middle.

                        Overall, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation brush!
