Most Helpful Positive Review If you wear loose minerals you NEED this brush
This brush is the best Bare has ever made! It feels like velvet when buffed over the complexion. I was a long time kabuki and heavenly face brush user and was a little nervous trying something new, but this brush is amazing. Great coverage-NO SHEDDING! I highly recommend getting this brush if you love medium-full coverage and a luxurious feel! I can't wait to put my makeup on now. I hope they make a retractable version for my purse!
Most Helpful Critical Review Too expensive
I hate the original BM application brush as it is rough and sheds. So, I use an inexpensive brush I found elsewhere that works and feels much better. My daughter gave me this brush for a gift and I do like it but felt bad that she paid so much money for it. I will use it so as not to hurt her feelings but will guide her to other, less over priced brushes from now on.

Every other brush I have leaves loose powder behind on my dressing tabletop. This did a good job picking up the powder and applying to my face evenly.
Well worth the money a must have

A must have to use with the foundation works just like it says it will
Not what you think it will be

I chose this brush over the original brush, and I really shouldn't have forced the change. They are right, this brush holds the loose powder like a sponge, but it barely comes off the brush for coverage. I used a different, cheapy brush and applied it much better without having to "absorb" as much into the brush. Not a big fan.
Anital from San Jose Ca
I LOVE this brush! Dished out the money and it's well worth it! Initially I felt the BM powder was not giving me the coverage I wanted but boy did this brush change that! Beautiful coverage, great blending brush and super soft! You gotta try it.
I love this brush!

I decided to try this brush out & I am so happy I did. It works very well. It applies foundation evenly & you can control how much coverage you want.
Not what BM says it is.

I bought this Beautiful Finish FoundationBrush for my original loose powder foundation. It does take up the powder like a sponge, but when you buff it on it holds on to the powder absorbs the powder like a sponge and deposits the powder unevenly. I use the loose powder bisque concealer on my face first and this brush sponges off most of the concealer and deposits the foundation unevenly all over. It also requires much more powder foundation usage because you need to reload the synthetic brush (sponge) more times to try to get it on more evenly. Very frustrating, time consuming and wasteful. I will buy the natural brushes elsewhere.

Good quality brush. It works very well with the bare minerals original foundation. You can use very little product and still get great coverage, with this brush.
Brenda from New York
I've used BM products for yearrrrssss. Unfortunately, once I hit my late 30's the original formula just stopped looking good on my skin. No matter what I did, or brush I used, it wouldn't sit well. Enter in this brush. It has changed my relationship with the original loose foundation. Now I'm able to wear it again and feel confident at how it looks. If you're on the fence or have had to stop using the foundation this may help you put it back in circulation. I'm really happy I gave this brush a shot.
Kellychi from Chicago
I bought this thinking it would solve the many issues I was having with the Original powder foundation. Sadly, it did nothing to help the streaky, patchy, flaky, pore-emphasizing effect the foundation gives my face. I've tried everything to make this brand work for me and I just don't understand what I am doing wrong.
I love the brush very soft
Brenda from Ohio
The brush is very soft I love it
The price is insane
Whitney B from Roanoke, VA
Hard to clean, and leaves unused product stuck in there. It's so dense, it will take off any other makeup you had on. Very scratchy. I've owned far better finishing brushes for much cheaper.
Lexi from Forney, TX
I had the small travel size version and finally upgraded. This brush is amazing and applies the foundation extremely well and even!
Finally got one and I love it
Netterz13 from Bay Area, CA
I've been a Bare Minerals loose powder foundation user since 2005; I've always used the BM Kabuki brushes to apply my foundation. It does a pretty good job but I found it scratchy and sometimes my face would get red and itchy after using it. I tried using a Sigma F80 brush, and several other good quality synthetic brushes but I wasn't getting the coverage I wanted from them, so I kept going back to my ratty old Kabukis. I don't know what exactly is different with this brush but it picks up and applies the loose foundation much, much better and more efficiently than other synthetic brushes. I get a nice even application with no streaks; the brush is so soft I haven't had any redness or itching since I started using it! This brush also makes it a lot easier to get into corners compared to a rounded Kabuki. Since it's so soft I always store it with the plastic sleeve tube when I'm not using it, to make sure it will keep its shape over the long run (not that I've had a problem, just protecting my investment). By the way, if you've used the travel size of this brush and didn't like it(I'm referring to the one they include in the travel sized kit) please give the regular sized one a chance. I waited a year before finally getting the regular size because I hated that travel-sized one!! Now I regret having waited so long. The regular sized one (this one) is so much softer and works a lot better, there's just no comparison.

I owned the full flawless brush from this brand and did not like it. I hesitated to buy another expensive brush from this brand but decided to give them another try and purchased this. I am so happy with it! I use it several times a week! It is so soft and applies my loose powder foundation so nicely and evenly!
Great brush for Original Foundation!!
SherryR from Belleville, IL
I've used this brush since it came out. It blends the Original Foundation beautifully. Very easy to get a light application or full coverage with this brush. Also, it is easy to clean.
I don't care for it
Kohta from New York
It's a pretty brush and I wanted to love it but it doesn't give the type of cover and finish that the full flawless face brush does. It doesn't shed- I'll give it that.
Best brush with bare minerals makeup.
J.B. Makeup girl from Somerset Kentucky
This brush is the best brush to use. I tried to use a cheaper brush and my makeup literally disappeared into the brush.
YLo20 from WI
This brush is OK. For the price, wish it was retractable.
Big and fluffy brush
Stace1 from PA
So glad I upgraded to this brush from the sample brush. The sample brush was great to try the original foundation. Made me love bareminerals. I decided being I was getting full sized products now why not the bigger brush. So glad I did. In love with the big fluffy soft brush. Like velvet touching your face. Definitely recommended.
Lush and Lovely
Niki L from Pasadena, Texas
I bought this about a month ago and absolutely love it! The brush really grabs hold of my foundation with much less fly-away than the full flawless face brush(which is a good brush for mineral veil). My foundation goes on evenly and I get more coverage from one 'filling' of this lush, lovely brush. Where have you been for the past twenty years? La-la-love it!!
SDee from undisclosed
I bought this brush a couple months ago and I love it. It is so much easier to spread my power foundation evenly throughout my entire face. This brush also helps a little product go a long way and blends very well. Do NOT press hard when applying with this brush or all of your product will stick to the first spot you touch, but when you apply it softly this brush does amazing! It cleans easily too.
Good but not great
marissam from Chicago
I like this brush more than other bare minerals brushes I've purchased in the past, but this brush still isn't quite right. I do like how soft it is and that I can get good coverage with it, but the indent in the middle doesn't seem to add value and may be better without that. Also, the brush absorbs a lot of the mineral foundation so I needed to use more than usual. But it didn't shed like other brushes of theirs have in the past. I'll still use it though because I don't know what other brush to use with the foundation.

I don't like it. Hard to use. Not prefer this one. I think i'll never use this
CP64 from NJ
It is very hard to choose the correct shades across product lines. I feel that the "GInger 06" shade for the Complexion Rescue Foundation Stick is a good match. I wanted to try this original foundation and came across a chart that said I should choose Medium Tan. However, I think it is too dark. Another area of the website tells me I should be Golden Beige. Same issue with conceealer, I used to get Medium 2 shade (warm) then I was matched in the boutique as Medium 1 (cool). Am I warm or cool? Is there a chart that lists all of the shades acroos product lines?
Feathery and light

The brush was too light with not enough density for me.
