    Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

    I purchased this with the powder foundation and found it to be quite useless. The brush is too small and too dense to quickly and evenly spread the product. It picks up a tiny amount of product through the screen in the foundation jar and I have to repeat this process about 10 times to get the desired amount of product. Softer, fluffier brushes work better with Tarte's powder.

    Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

    I bought one of the tarte mineral foundations and tried to use a cheaper applicator brush but to no avail. I ended up biting the bullet and purchasing this brush and I'm glad that I did. It was a little pricey but worth it. The foundation goes on great with this brush and provides better control for how much foundation you want to apply.

    Amazing Brush

    By kamid20

    from CA

    Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

    I was a little nervous about purchasing this brush at first due to the size and denseness of the bristles, but it has such high ratings that I figured why not. I had purchased Tartes loose foundation before purchasing the brush and was using one on my other face brushes but I wasn't loving the brush or the foundation. Once I got this brush and used it with the loose foundation I immediately feel in love with both the foundation and the brush. It fits perfectly in the mesh and there is never any mess.

                  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!

                      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).

                      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:
