      Comments about Clinique Foundation Buff Brush:

      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!

        Worth it

        By SD_NATUREGIRL

        from San Diego

        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.

          Hands down the BEST foundation brush out there....the brush is soft and makes your face look make up free (and lets admit ladies we want that). The brush does NOT leave any streaks or soak up your makeup. I need to back up on these brushes to always have an extra one.

            I LOVE this foundation brush! I purchased this brush over 2 weeks ago & have used it everyday since then with NO fall out of the brush bristles....I know 2 weeks is not that long but I have had high end/name brand brushes shed within the first couple uses. I use this to apply Clinique's Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup & it applies the foundation smoothly, evenly, streak free & I don't need to use a lot of product with this brush. I am able to pat foundation a little more heavily in areas I feel need more coverage & I can use the swirling/buffing motion to blend the product out & onto the rest of my face. I do feel the brush is expensive but I will purchase this again once I need to replace my current brush or when I want to get a 2nd one to keep in my travel bag.

                    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.
