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.
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.

For over 30 years I have used my hands to put on my foundation. I recently bought this blending brush not knowing what to expect. I have to say I absolutely love it. It works great and blends perfectly. I actually use less foundation too. If you have always used your hands or tried using a brush and didn't like it for your foundation I recommend you try this brush. I love it! I will use a brush from now on for my foundation.

Very nice brush, holds powder and spreads evenly. Very soft.

I just recently purchased this brush. It is very soft and applies powder products beautifully. I mainly use it for bronzer and it applies a nice, light wash of color. Does not shed, and washes up nicely. Great quality.

This brush works amazing with any makeup! And it's super durable!

This is my favourite brush, by far! Excellent for foundation and mineral veil!

I recently purchased this brush and have really enjoyed using it. I prefer using for my bronzer and Mineral Veil because it applies so nicely and blends the bronzer for a very natural, soft finish. Have not experienced any shedding like with the previous Full Flawless face brush. This new brush is very soft and not scratchy.

I didn't care for this at first but after a few uses, really fell in love. It creates a beautiful finish for mineral foundation and warmth. No sheafing like the previous full flawless face brush. Took off one star because I wish the handle was shorter- tough to squeeze into my on-the-go makeup bag.

I love the original brush, however the brush I bought from Ulta, with the same name is not as pictured. I've only had it about a week so we will see how it goes.

The brush I received looks nothing like the brush that is pictured on the website. I have this brush and wanted a new one to replace the one I've use for years, however the brush that was sent to me is completely different. Even on the re-order, it was not the correct brush. The shape (long tapered handle) color (black ferrule and long white bristles), and style are all different. I contacted customer service to alert them to the discrepancy, but they could care less. Beware if you purchase this brush, it looks nothing like the picture!

This brush is NOT the same as it used to be. I compared to my old one and it's longer and different materials. And it's definitely not an improvement. I'd never buy again.
This brush applies the loose mineral veil beautifully. The brush is well made, does not shed even after multiple washes. I do use the bareMineral brush shampoo and I believe it helps with the longevity of brushes.

About 7 years ago, I bought several bareMinerals face and eye brushes including full flawless, flawless, angled face and max coverage concealer. I use almost all of them daily, especially the Full Flawless for Mineral Veil and the Angled Face for blush or bronzer. They pick up product and apply evenly and beautifully. I clean them regularly using BM brush shampoo or a gentle shampoo, like Neutrogena and they clean up well and don't shed. In reading some of the comments here about shedding, there must have been a time period where the manufacturing quality wasn't up to par, but I'm pleased to stay that hasn't been my experience at all. In fact, if there was a way to contact one another, please reach out….I bought several more than I needed, and I have many unused, still in their original sealed cellophane wrapper. Anyone want any from the "good batch"?

I love this brush. It's soft and does a great job with powders. It's obvious that it's well made and a lot of thought was put into the design

The first time I used this brush, the bristles started falling off and got all over my face. I thought maybe this was just because it was new, so I kept using it and tried rubbing off the loose bristles. I was very gentle with the brush and used the swirl tap method as directed. The bristles kept falling off. Poor quality brush. Do not buy.
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.

Yes it sheds but only brush I've used that gets to a beautiful full coverage!

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.

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.

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.

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.
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!
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.
Molly Shelton from AL
needed a new powder brush and this one is perfect! Blends powder out great!
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.

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.
