Most Helpful Positive Review This brush is great...
This brush is great for applying mineral veil and the radiances, I love using it for the faux tan matte. I only gave it 4 hearts because it really doesnt work that well for me with the foundation, gives very little coverage, if any.
Most Helpful Critical Review bristles shed too easily
I thought that maybe I was the only one who was having such terrible shedding problems with the full flawless face brush that I recently bought until I started reading the reviews. There are only 3 reviews for this product, and 2 of them state how quickly the bristles break off and fall out. I had my brush for only a month when I noticed that the front of my shirts each morning were coated with the brush's bristles that were breaking off. I use the brush very gently to try to prolong the life of the brush, but it doesn't help. I have only had this brush for 4 months, and it already needs replaced. I love the makeup, but this brush is a terrible product. I wish Bare Minerals would stand behind their brushes with a guarantee.
Reviewed by 468 customers Good application but one problem
Assilem from Louisiana
I bought the BareMinerals foundation powder and got the flawless face brush with it..I was happy with the application aside from the bristles coming out. I thought it was because it was a new brush..so I cleaned it and let it dry, then used it. The same thing, they just keep falling out and getting stuck to my face and the worst part is the get in my eyes. Sooo a couple years later my husband asked if I wanted more foundation and I said yes and can u see if they have another flawless face brush? He got it and I put on my makeup..same problem. Bristles allover my face and in my eyes. I cleaned it and no change.
Best for full application
Brin from Mass
Yes it sheds but only brush I've used that gets to a beautiful full coverage!
This brush is amazing but..
MJH 8 from Dillwyn, Va.
This is my all time favorite brush not just from bareMinerals, but from anywhere. the natural hair bristles are SO good at applying mineral and powder foundations and produce a natural medium to full coverage. Natural bristle brushes work best for mineral and powder foundations and they are getting so hard to find nowadays ( they shouldn't be, we pay so much for good foundation that we should be able to apply with solid gold if we like ). I came here to look for this brush but upon looking at the reviews saying it still sheds like crazy I've changed my mind. I love love love it, but when I use mine I have to spend so much more time picking the hairs out of my beautifully applied foundation and it's frustrating. Please re vamp this brush. Don't be afraid of natural bristles! What applies your signature makeup the best is what die hard fans will go to.
AngelWings from Texas
I bought this brush a month ago, but can't make much use of it because it sheds so much. Expensive for a product I can't use. I love this product and have bought a lot of their makeup products which have not disappointed.
High price, low quality
Lin70 from Montrose, PA
I've had this brush for several months and I still have to check my skin with a magnifying mirror to make sure that all of the bristles that have shed are off my face. This brush sheds like crazy. Would have expected more at the price.
CmJ74 from Detroit
Many many years ago I worked for BareEscentuals (20+ years ago in Denver) and fell in love with all of their products. Some they have changed but the basic line is still good. I own many of their brushes and will no longer purchase them. The cost has went up and quality way down. Who wants a bursh where the hairs fall out into the product!?!?! As a director of quality it matters to me that I get what I pay for.
Best Bare Minerals Brush hands down!
Ash from Oregon
Tried the new beautiful finish brush, but this brush is hands down the BEST for the mineral powder foundation. I get so much better coverage and it goes on so smoothly. I will never stray from this product again! I used the other brush for warmth instead of the powder. Some people complain about it shedding, but I never see this to be an issue. Maybe a few hairs here and there, but nothing excessive. Totally worth every penny!
My Fave Brush
BKbk from Maine
I have used this for over 15 years. I always try the new brushes when they come out but always return to this one. Best full coverage application for original bare minerals foundation. I don't care that it sheds.
Love this brush
Molly Shelton from AL
needed a new powder brush and this one is perfect! Blends powder out great!
favorite brush but....
Wondergirl from Canada
This is my favorite brush because it picks up product so well but it sheds. If only Bare Minerals would get it glued properly it would be great. Please Bare MInerals, glue your brush hairs inpeoperly because I love this brush and need a new one. I had to return the new one. Do you know that my older brush, the same one I bought about 15 years ago is still good and doesn't shed at all. Really it doesn't. I'll buy a new one when it is glued on better in the future.
cl87 from Moorestown, NJ
The brush started shedding immediately upon first use. I used it a few more times, but I got tired of picking off the strands of the brush off my face. Threw it away within a week.
A little rough
Maria Jo from Windermere FL
The brush works well, but felt it was rough on my face and the bristles would fall out. I feel BM makeup is high quality, but maybe not so much when it came to brushes. But I decided to try another brush and purchased the beautiful finish brush to replace this one and am happy with that switch! It is softer, holds up well, and works great! I would not recommend this one though.
Bristle fall out is horrible
Hailey from Indianapolis
I recently bought this new brush. The fall out of bristle is awful and just sticks to your face. It was so bad I had to end up just throwing it away and wasting my money.
I would not buy this product again
PJ from Battle Creek
I use this product and it left hair all over my face and shirt. I thought that maybe it was due to first time use. 3 days later it is worse than first use. I spend more time cleaning the bristles off my face and shirt than putting my makeup on.
SandyA from Ann Arbor, Mi
I have been using Bare Minerals and the brushes for years. Great brush for coverage but it sheds so badly. I feel like something has changed in the manufacturing because years ago I never had this problem.
Kohtee from New York
So what the brush sheds a bit... the application is perfect. I've been using BM original mineral foundation for 15 years. This is the only brush I prefer to use. I've tried all others and nothing works as well for full coverage.
my favorite brush
Danyell from Sacramento
so soft and puts bareminerals powder on perfectly
Callmeunsatisfied from California
I've purchased 3 brushes in the past 3 years and no matter what type of brush I've bought the bristles are left on my face....very annoying and disappointed)):
Bristles fall out constantly
jesjua from Old Bridge, NJ
I bought this about a month ago. The brush has great application but the bristles fall of during every application, it's really annoying. Has become the norm for most of the baremineral brushes though.
disappointed99 from undisclosed
I bought this in May as a replacement of one I had for many many years. I washed it very gently (in Bare Minerals brush wash) and now it has spread out and hardly applies any makeup. Incredibly disappointed that I wasted this much money on a brush that lasted less than 6 months.
Applies mineral makeup well
flomote from Lakeland, FL
Nice full soft brush. I use it to apply loose bare minerals foundation. Grabs the powder foundation effectively. Only gave it 4 stars because of moderate shedding. This one works better than the regular flawless face brush.
Best coverage brush
Sunshine from Mobile, AL
I use this brush all the time worth the money. Applying powder foundation is effortless and smooth. Will day they shed bristles a lot but still the best brush out there for me
Crys315 from AZ
I love the coverage I get with this brush with the original loose powder foundation. It's actually softer than I expected but still pretty dense to pack on coverage if need be.
ECBLM from San Francisco
I have used Bare Minerals makeup for years and have always used this brush to apply blush. I agree with the reviews is that it is not a great product and the bristles fall out constantly. It is the one product I need to replace often. Time to consider another applicator!
The best brush
Hunterbugs from Enterprise, Alabama
I use Bare Minerals powder makeup. This brush distributes everything evenly.
