      Best Liquid Foundation Brush

      By T

      from Ky

      Comments about Clinique Foundation Buff Brush:

      I had been wanting this Foundation Brush for so long and did not want to pay the price. I finally caved and bought it. I NEVER buy expensive brushes. But, do yourself a favor and splurge on this one. It's worth it!! Better than a Beauty Blender! My liquid foundation went on flawless. No streaks, no lines, no buffing. Just lightly brushed it in on my face and it looked beautiful with every foundation I tried. I had been using another fairly popular foundation brush but this one is so much better. I am so glad I bought it. Does all the work for you when applying foundation. Get it!

      I LOVE this brush !! I always feel like my beauty blender takes so much product and never really gives me coverage if I don't double coat.. and I've tried every foundation under the sun. with this brush my foundation looks flawless! I've tried 2 different foundation brands and still the same results! BUY THIIIISSSS

        Wow this brush really helps better than my sponge. It buffs and stipples to get the B.B. cream or foundation looking very natural.

            I am not someone who enjoys buying expensive brushes especially when the brush is just as much as the foundation but I do have to say that this brush is amazing. I used it to blend out my tape shape foundation and I absolutely love it. It is so soft and gives the airbrush effect which is awesome. It doesnt make my makeup look cakey either which is nice. I would definitely recommend this brush to anyone who wants an air brush effect for their foundation.

              Comments about Clinique Foundation Buff Brush:

              This brush is great quality for a brush, that's a given. I've been faithfully using a real technique complexion sponge for over 2 years and it was very difficult and pretty much impossible for me to adjust using a brush. The application was streaky, uneven, and highlted the texture on my skin in the worse way possible. I have normal texture with a few acne scars and need an even air brush finish when possible and that did not happen with this brush. Maybe my skin type just prefers a sponge over a brush....hope this helps someone out there!

              Comments about Clinique Foundation Buff Brush:

              I specifically bought this brush because Ulta currently sells it in a set with a full size chubby highlighter for the same price.
              I've only had it about a month, but so far I like how it looks, how it feels in my hand and on my face, and how well it lays down and buffs out foundation. I've cleaned it several times and it dries back into shape with no shedding.

                Hi,
                Is this brush good for powder foundations?
                I have dry rosacea prone skin and I'm wondering if this tool is good for pressed mineral foundation.
                Thanks.

                  You can use the Clinique Brush Cleaner, and it is absolutely amazing! Our bristles have an anti bacterial coating and this brush cleaner guarantees that the antibacterial coating lasts.

                  A:

                  High-grade synthetic fiber bristles makes it the perfect choice for all foundation formulas as the fibers are identical in size and diameter allowing for a more even application of foundation. Anti-bacterial treated bristles stay clean.
