I absolutely fell in LOVE with the Complexion Rescue the first time I tried it, but I was determined NOT to buy another brush. The first couple of times I applied it, I used my fingers, and it worked pretty well. I then saw a review of the Complexion Rescue and this brush on YouTube, and the girl tried applying it with this brush, then with the Precision Face Brush, which I already own. She was partial to the Precision Face Brush, so I thought, "Yay! I don't have to buy another brush." Then I actually tried it with the Precision brush... uh, not exactly as amazing as she thought it was. I can see how some people would like it - and I would encourage women to try it before just buying another brush (especially if you're on a budget) - but you definitely might want to check this one out, too. When I was shopping today, I saw the sample brush (which they had just opened because there wasn't one on display) and took it and applied a little of the Complexion Rescue on my hand. When I blended it with the brush....well, the rest is history as they say. It wasn't even in the same ballpark as using my fingers or the Precision Face Brush! It blended so beautifully just on my hand! When I got home and tried it on my face, it was just literally night and day. This is probably my favorite Bare Minerals brush so far. Love it! Love it! Love it! Try it! Try it! Try it!
Does not apply liquid foundation very well. Leaves streaks all over. Have to blend with my hand to even it out. Better off just using my finger tips to apply

I purchased this brush after seeing ads showing women using brushes to apply liquid foundation. I've always used my fingers and am never really satisfied with the coverage and yet, I feel like I am using a ton of product. Not anymore. I use a small amount of foundation dabbed here and there on my face and this brush smoothes it perfectly. The coverage is great ( I have rosacea) and I am no longer wasting product.

This is the best brush I have ever tried, and I've tried quite a few. My skin always seems to go through changes when I least expect it, and I have to switch between a brush and a beauty blender, or my fingers, to get a smooth cover. I haven't had to change a thing since I started using this brush. It does a beautiful job of blending my foundation, and my coverage looks like my second skin.
There is only one con, and it might be a big one. This brush takes forever, and I mean FOREVER to dry. The first time I washed it, I tried it out 24 hours later, and the brush was still super damp. The second time it took several DAYS to let it dry. Every time I walked by it, I used a tissue to try and mop up any excess moisture.
That's my only problem with the brush. I would recommend getting two so that you can use one while the other dries.

I've had many foundation brushes and this one takes the cake! It's super soft and blends my liquid Neutrogena hydro boost hydrating tint. Any other blender or brush just doesn't cut it. I've had mine for a few years and it still works amazing! I need to buy a new one soon just because I want one lol. Not because the other one isn't working.

I purchased this brush to use exclusively with Complexion Rescue, only because BM recommended it as the best brush to use with that product. Fool that I am, I even sprang for BM's Well Cared For Brush Cleaner in order to take maximum care of this brush. (BTW- save your money-baby shampoo still works waaaay better to clean makeup brushes). Brush had a luxurious feel BEFORE using it, but one washing, and it's a hot mess!! I tried a second cleaning, but the bristles have separated making application of liquid makeup nearly impossible. I went back to using my 3 year old, drug store ELF brush...and the Complexion Rescue now has a flawless finish. This is a HORRIBLE BRUSH.

I absolutely do not recommend using this brush as recommended for the BareMinerals Tinted Gel, as it does not play nicely with that product at all — and despite many attempts — but it's a decent option for stippling on liquid foundations when you need a fuller application.

This brush is soft and applies makeup evenly.

I have been using this brush with the stick foundation and they are both excellent! The brush is worth the money because it blends really well. Of course the foundation is really good also.
JD from CO
In my usage of the brush I get a much smoother coverage.

Love this foundation brush don't think I could leave without it
gail30 from Los Angeles, CA
I bought this brush the first time over a year ago. It didn't seem to be working for me until I contacted Customer Support for advise. I was told to use it in a stippling motion all over the face, then go back and smooth it out. Now that I am using that technique, I love the brush.

I use this brush with my powdered foundation and love it!
KZZN from Kuwait
I really like this brush. It helps the product to go on smoothly and evenly. Easy to wash and it doesn't lose its shape or effectiveness. I live in a country where I cannot get these products so I am glad that it lasts.

It was rough when applying my make up. It aggravated my roceasa.
Lauralee from Montana
I've been using this brush with the tinted moisturizer and am falling in love. Have never used tinted moisturizer before and am asking myself, "Why did I wait so long?" I also appreciate the natural sun protectors!
Vickilf57 from Cahokia IL
I bought this brush for the complexion rescue, great at blending the makeup
Angie from Las Vegas
The elf ultimate blending brush is a really good dupe for this brush at a fraction of the cost, worth trying if you don't want to splurge on this on.

Great product, good quality! I lost my first brush and am going to go buy another one! It applies my foundation and shimmering liquid flawlessly! I do use a different BareMinerals brush to apply powder, but I love this brush!
Busy Mom from Colorado
This brush feels great and is very soft but it's only good for a light weight moisturizer like the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, not a full coverage foundation as the bristles in this brush tend to clump together as other reviewers have stated. Works great with my complexion rescue.
Jen M from Michigan
I got this brush along with the Complexion Rescue Hydrating Creme, and I did notice a bit of a streaky finish at first, as many reviewers have stated. I found that I have to stipple the product on and sort of pat/dab it all over rather than swiping as it shows in the video for this brush. That avoids the streaking and makes for a more even application. It does take a little longer to apply this way, though, but I think it's worth it for a better end result.
Mowzowie from Redlands
Love the way this brush works with Bareminerals complexion rescue. I'm glad I decided to buy the brush with my makeup purchase.
CJ from Oklahoma City, OK
The brush delivers a perfect application of Complexion Rescue without streaks. Effortlessly controls the amount of coverage while giving a natural, fresh base.

The way this brush APPEARS, is not how it actually looks in person at all...and this is a major flaw, in my eyes, for a brush to have different bristles other than the way it looks. So misleading. The tips look fluffy and full, so you'd think this would be a hearty, true (liquid) foundation brush, but nope. Any density leaves the second anything touches it, the bristles become separated and pointed (think: stipple) that ends up leaving streaking and just a mess of a finish on the face with a ton of brush stroke marks. Not pretty. It's a poorly-constructed stipple brush all day long, and one that was used very few times before being cleaned and placed in the archive. I collect all the brushes so I had to have it, but this is the first time I've actually owned one that I barely used before putting it way and moving on to the next. Disappointing.
