                LOVE this brush. So great for applying my BB cream, for that 'me, only better' look. Stands up to washing with a facial rinse and water (the brush maker sells a special wash kit, but I haven't used it). Long-lasting; I replace every 1.5 years or so, when bristles start to come out.

                              I'm looking to try Bare Minerals for myself and my daughter. While I'm looking for a fuller coverage I would like her to have a lighter coverage. This will be her 1st time wearing makeup so I want to start her out slow. Will this brush work well for both of us or should I get her something like the RT Powder Brush?

                                Hi Lin,

                                That is super exciting for both of you guys! :) And how awesome you're doing that together. It can be pretty confusing to know which brush goes with what product, even if you're an expert on makeup!

                                One of the reasons I love our Expert Face Brush so much (and why it's our #1 selling brush) is because you can use it for both light and fuller coverage, so I think it would be perfect for you both.

                                If you want to really make her day, you could buy her a brush (or a few) from our beautiful new collection, Brush Crush, found here: https://www.ulta.com/ulta/a/_/Ntt-brush%20crush/Nty-1?Dy=1&ciSelector=searchResults. The Powder Brush and Complexion Brush in this collection would work great for her!

                                Thanks! And good luck!

                                Yes, our brand is cruelty free. We do not use any animal hair/natural hair for our brush bristles. They are a high quality synthetic called taklon and we believe they actually work even better than animal hair, so bonus! :)

                                Thanks.

                                I use this brush every day and the bristles are dense, so it's not "fluffy" because it's meant to be used as a buffing type of brush, but the bristles themselves are soft.

                                I think the Expert Face Brush would be great with BareMinerals powder. A bit part of the application of the powder is the buffing and blending, which this brush is *perfect* for.

                                Hope that helps!

                                That literally is the exact combo I use and I love it. The Powder Brush is good if you want very light coverage, but if you're like me and want fuller, the Expert Face Brush is awesome for that.

                                Hi Jen,

                                I love the Expert Face Brush for liquid foundation. Overall, I've found the rounded (non-angled) brush head is better for all over application. You are definitely spot on for that one! :)

                                For the blush brush, I actually have two favorites, depending on the look. If you want overall rosy cheeks, color that looks like a natural hue, the Real Techniques Blush Brush is amazing (http://www.ulta.com/blush-brush?productId=xlsImpprod3220067). The tapered head gives you control, but not too contoured.

                                However, if you want very precise application, like color over a contour, the Sculpting Brush you mentioned (http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065) is awesome.

                                Hope that helps!
