      Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

      This brush has been created to be of a perfect fit for the net distribution in Tarte's Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation. This brush is not like other foundation brushes that can be a bit more rough and drag on the skin when applying but this brush glides beautifully and lightly! The description provided speaks volumes of truth! I love Tarte's products, especially being cruelty-free and marketing to adhere to the beauty of cosmetics!

        Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

        I wanted a nice firm brush to use with powder/mineral foundations. Some are too fluffy and you end up just covered in a whirl of powder with very little sticking to your face. This works perfectly. It's very dense so you can buff powder in. I love it. My only issue is when I clean it, it takes FOREVER too dry. Literally days! I have to clean it and then switch to liquid and use a sponge for a few days while it dries.

          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!

                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.

                            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:

                            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:
