Most Helpful Positive Review Pricey, but very well worth it!
I read all of the reviews on Ulta before purchasing this bamboo foundation brush. I bought it to use with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. I was on the fence about buying it due to the cost, but after looking at it and feeling it, I decided to go ahead and purchase it and I'm so glad I did. It has very densely packed bristles that are so super soft, and really is a pretty brush. Yes, it costs more than I really wanted to spend, but it is sooo worth it. You will not be sorry when you get this home and try it out. It does not absorb a lot of the product like some foundation brushes do. I dip it into the foundation and brush it on my face in circular motions. It really gets in every crack and crevice, even covers well right underneath the eyes. I provides a very smooth finish with no lines like some brushes leave. I have had no shedding with it either. It does say to keep the bamboo handle dry when washing it, but that is not an issue with me, I love it! It provides smooth full coverage and I really have nothing bad to say about it. I think it would work well with any liquid foundation, I have not tried it with powder, so I cannot comment on that. I am 44 years old with many, many age spots, and this brush was very effective at covering all of them flawlessly. I have nothing bad to say about this product, I just find it perfect for applying my foundation and I absolutely love it, it is well worth the money. I may even purchase one for my 24 year old daughter, as she has tried it also, and loved the results. It is super soft and works so well on my combination mature skin. I highly recommend!
Most Helpful Critical Review NO WAY JOSE !
I bought this product a few months ago... I loved it at first! It was great for foundation and gave me really nice coverage....After I washed this brush, the little hairs literally CHUNKED out. The whole brush is starting to become loose and you can see the glue from the root of where the hairs are connected to the base are chunking out.(keep in mind I take very very VERY good care of my brushes and makeup products - especially when it comes to cleaning them) I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BRUSH. Totally waste. I'm so disappointed because at first I was in love with this brush. Totally not worth the price... I love TARTE products and this was a complete bummer. Won't by Tarte brushes again...

Amazing foundation brush, best one I've ever had!
my favorite brush!
jmarz from rhode island
i'm not sure how aggressively everyone else is cleaning their brush, but i had my first one for two years before replacing it out of sheer principle. i used dawn soap to clean it after heavy uses and brush wipes in between daily uses. i love this brush. i was sad to throw away my first one out of emotional attachment but was thrilled when i purchased my second one. it's so soft and smooth and allows me to have full coverage with any foundation i use with it. i fully recommend this as a brush option for foundation application.

FITS MY HAND PERFECTLY AND ISN'T TOO BULKY. DOESN'T LEAVE BRISTLES ON MY FACE LIKE OTHER FOUNDATION BRUSHES I HAVE USED.
Fell apart after I cleaned it
Picky mom from AL
Loved this brush at first, but the bristles started falling out after the first gentle washing. It appears that the glue holding the bristles together inside the handle has deteriorated and all of the bristles are falling out as a whole.
The worst place EVER
Hanan from Oakland buffet
This is so stupid this brush is 34 dollars and it doesn't even last long,this costs more than the James Charles mini pallet
I loved now hate it
Amber from TX
It was super soft and wonderful when I got it a few months ago. Unfortunately when I washed it, it started to fall apart. Its a mess and I can't use it anymore. I take great care of my brushes and this is the first one to do this to me.
The absolute beat!!!
The Mrs from Virginia
This buffer is the best one I have ever owned! It gives you an airbrushed finish and the coverage is unreal. Absolutely worth every penny!!
Only foundation brush you will need
Michelle from Houston, Tx
This is by far literally the best foundation brush I have ever owned. I have scars on my face that are diffucult to cover and blend with foundation. This brush immediately just blends everything flawlessly and quickly.
RG from AL
I've never used a brush like this for liquid foundation, but it was recommended to me and now I'm in LOVE. Gets my foundation on PERFECTLY and airbrushed in two seconds. Amazed!
CP from Nebraska
I used this brush and loved it for one week. However, when I washed it for the first time, using a brush cleaner and a brush cleaning mitt, the hairs fell out in clumps. Such a disappointment and I can't return it because the store closed for the pandemic.
Best foundation brush!
Brush from USA
One of the best foundation brushes I've used! It's a little pricey but so worth it. Buffs out your foundation nice and quick. I'll never be without it
This brush is heavenly
KC from Long Island, NY
I am never one to rate products but I am just so in love with this brush and feel the need to spread the word! I've tried applying foundation with my hands, a beauty blender, and brushes from IT cosmetics. This brush unlike the others, gives an airbrush finish with no steaks/brush lines (!) and also feels so soft on my skin. I was skeptical buying this as it's a little costly and just looks like an ordinary brush but will now going forward only buy this and will recommend it to all! (Note: I've only had this for a week and haven't cleaned it yet so can't comment on the loss of bristles)
Never buying again
Pj from Illinois
I've bought two of these brushes. The first distributed makeup evenly and lasted for two years. I was hesitate to buy a second because I was not pleased that the first only lasted two years. I would expect a much longer lifespan for the price. I ended up buying the second anyway because I loved the way my make up look when applied with it. Ive only had the second brush for 6 months and it's already shedding! It is basically useless to me now. Overall, the quality for the price is a joke. In fact, the quality for any price is a joke. Will not be buying anymore Tarte brushes!

Quality of a porcupine w/o spikes

Best foundation brush I own. I've purchased 3 other ones before I found this one; no need to keep searching for the perfect brush this is the one
Overpriced & Overrated

Best Foundation Brush!!!... EVER!! 💖💜
Katie_Bug865 from GA
I 💖💖💖 This Foundation Brush! It's GREAT For Blending Out Foundation & Self Tanner. Doesn't Waste Product Either! I 💜 This So Much That Actually, My MOM Has Totally Stolen It From Me!! Hahaha 🤣🤣🤣 She's Like WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE!?!? Lol. Her Makeup Goes On Much Smoother & Softer When Using This Brush! I Currently Use A BeautyBlender, But Definitely Thinking Of Repurchasing THIS SOON!
Brush Has Changed...
Debbie from Atlanta
And not for the better. This used to be my all time favorite foundation brush. It used to be so big and dense; it made applying any foundation soooo easy and fast! But now the hairs are slightly longer and way less dense. It's not nearly as good as it used to be. I'll be returning the new one I just got and hope I can make my older one last for a while longer.
Best foundation brush ever!
Harley from Orange, CT
This product gives a natural looking airbrush finish. Applies makeup evenly without wasting any.
Not for me
tm from NY
I wanted to love this so bad, but I just can't. Maybe it's me, maybe I'm not a brush girl since I'm so used to beauty blenders. There's no denying the brush is beautiful quality and soft, but I applied my normal holy grail foundation with it and it was so sheered out and streaky. I have combo skin and the motion from the brush completely highlighted all my dry patches on my cheeks (and I had already exfoliated, moisturized and primed). Had to completely start over and use my blender. Maybe great for others but not me :-(
I love this brush!
Suzy from Michigan
This is the best brush I have ever used! My makeup goes on smooth and blends well! This is my forever brush! Baby shampoo cleans it and doesn't cause the bristles to fall out! ❤️
Great buffer brush
Ace from Washington
I use this to buff and blend my foundation and contouring and it works wonderfully. Works well for powders as well.
Mmarcot from Mi
Love this brush. This is actually the third one I bought. I got one for myself, my mom and my grandma.
Daisy♡ from Porterville, CA
One of the best brushes you can buy!!! Its a high quality brush! I love the way my foundation blends on my face with this brush! It applies the foundation evenly on my face everytime!♡
Cleaning it ruined my brush

Great foundation brush. But... First time to clean it, as per the instructions, the glue cane undine & the bristles fell out.
