    I use this brush to apply my powder foundation and it works wonderfully. It really buffs out my foundation and leaves a flawless finish. It works with several different types of powder foundation and I've also used it to buff out liquid full coverage foundation. Overall a good investment!

                  I bought this to apply my Bareminerals original loose foundation. In the store, I tried the tester brush with the foundation on the back of my hand and it gave me the most awesome finish. However, once I bought it and tried it on my face at home, I had a very different experience. It applied the foundation in a blotchy way with cakey-ness on some parts and little coverage on others. I think it would work well with a liquid or cream foundation but not loose powder foundation. I exchanged it for an IT Cosmetics brush instead and it worked way better :)!

                      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 The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:

                      A:

                      Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush features dense bristles to provide fuller coverage, so we typically don't recommend it for bronzer or blush application. A better suited brush for bronzer application may be the The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush:

                      A:

                      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:

                      A:

                      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).
