Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

I wanted so badly to like this brush...it was easy to hold and a sleek appearance-but the bristles just were not soft. It lifted my foundation and contour right off my skin.

              I use this to apply liquid foundation, and my overall complaint is that after a month of using/cleaning the brush regularly, the bristles got filmy and stopped applying a full face of foundation well. For the price, I feel it should work a bit longer.

                    This brush does a great job. No complaints except for the price. I don't mind spending money on quality products but for being Ulta brand, I was surprised at the price. I purchased this bc of a great sale going on but i don't know that I'd pay full price for it.

                          I am used to Bare Mineral brushes and have had them a long time. I saw these on sale (16 normally) at two for 15. I wish I had bought more. They are a lot more compact than the brushes I am used to, but do a good job.

                                  This brush can produce either medium coverage or full coverage. The smaller the circular motions you buff, the more coverage and more airbrushed finish you will receive.

                                  Rather than this brush, which is ideal for powder formulas, instead we recommend using the ULTA Angled Foundation Brush with liquid and cream products such as BB cream. This is a firmer brush, with more compact brush hairs that will apply liquid and cream products much more evenly and precisely:
