        Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

        I switched to Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation after many years of only using Bare Minerals, I decided to upgrade my brush and purchase this one to do with my new foundation, thinking it was time to retire my old Bare Minerals one. HOLY COW does this brush blow my old BM one out of the water! The short handle is easy to hold and MAN is it soft on my face!! I feel like it allows the make up to blend so much better than my BM one too. I agree with the other reviewers who found it to be pricey - it is, but for something I will use every day for years to come, I think it's worth it.

                I am not saying I don't like it, but I am saying for the price I was not amazed. I think any loose foundation brush would do the trick, and better then this one.

                  I bought the brush with the powder foundation and my skin looks amazingly smooth and natural. I haven't tried the powder without this brush, but don't have any reason to. I'm an artist so I know how important the right brush is. I think it's the brush that really makes this powder foundation go on so evenly. And it feels wonderful.

                    The Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush is sold by Tarte. I was sold this brush by an Ulta employee when looking for a new powder foundation in which I bought both this brush and loose powder foundation. I was told that this is the only brush that works with this loose powder foundation. I found that to not be true. I can use a flat top kabuki brush with this powder foundation. The Airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush is very short and cute, but too small for my tiny hands. The bristles are equally as small, but the brush is very dense and soft. I returned this brush because I found that I liked using my kabuki brush to apply the loose powder foundation instead. Plus, for the price of the brush I could have gotten another IT cosmetic's brush.

                      I do not really wear a lot of make up and this is perfect for me. Also I have a natural golden color even in the winter and tarte is the only color that would match my skin tone.

                      I love this brush, ended up buying it when I bought my Amazonian Clay Airbrush Powder Foundation and they are my new dream team. I love the way it feels during application, and it has yet to shed on me. The only thing I would change is to make the handle a little chunkier/larger so it's easier to buff out at the end.

                          A:

                          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:
