    Comments about IT Brushes For ULTA Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush #301:

    I really like this brush, but it's not ideal for liquid foundation. It was recommended because of the excellent finish it produces, so I purchased it. But I didn't realize that this particular brush was really meant for powder foundation. I was hoping this would still work with my liquid foundation, but it is really much better for powder. I use it to buff setting powder after applying my liquid with a different brush. I love the feel of it and it is really well designed.If I used a powder product, I would be highly pleased. I plan to purchase one that is for liquid foundation and keep this for applying a setting powder. I would recommend this to someone that uses a powder foundation.

    Comments about IT Brushes For ULTA Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush #301:

    Incredibly soft, smooth applicator, doesn't lose hairs when cleaning. I will say it's difficult to get the brush really clean and it took multiple cleanser and rises to get all my foundation out. Still, no hair losses.

    WORTH THE MONEY.

    By Olivia

    from Missouri

    Comments about IT Brushes For ULTA Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush #301:

    I was a die hard beauty blender girl for yearssssss. I thought a brush would make my makeup look cakey, uneven and splotchy. This brush did quite the opposite, it applies evenly and looks amazing as well! It provides medium to full coverage and is great for layering as well. It also picks up almost NO foundation! It's amazing. I will never use a beauty blender again!

                I have been using the cc cream for over a year and I love it!! I have one of the regular brushes from IT to apply to CC. Would it be better to use 311 or 301 to use? I love the look and design of this line of brushes.

                  Hi there, thank you for your question! Both Velvet Luxe brushes can be used to apply CC+ Cream- IT really depends on your preference! We make a variety of brushes, so you choose when is best for you. If you prefer an angled foundation brush, use the Velvet Luxe Flawless Face Brush #311. If you prefer a flat top brush, try the Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush #301. We hope you love IT! XOXO

              • Q:

                All these brushes seem great, but a little overwhelming. Is this brush, Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush # 301, good for loose, (Not pressed) mineral foundation. Or what brush would you honestly recommend for using with Bare minerals Loose mineral foundation, to get Full coverage. I have a lot of redness. So I need a brush that will deliver Full coverage with loose mineral foundation. Thank you

                  Hi there, thank you for your question! For the most full coverage application of any powder foundation IT is best to use a flat top foundation brush. We recommend using the Velvet Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush #301. IT will absolutely give you the results you are looking for! XOXO

                  A:

                  We recommend cleaning weekly using a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo. Gently massage a lather into bristles using cool water, then rinse until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also use a brush cleaner spray in between uses to keep brushes clean between weekly shampoos (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                  Hi!!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We are more than happy to assist you with that today!!!! When using a liquid foundation, we recommend using a paddle shaped flat brush more like the Velvet Luxe™ Plush Foundation #304. The densely-packed, flat but wide brush head moves effortlessly over the skin for flawless coverage that is sheer to builidable to full coverage. A flat top/doomed brush is better for powder foundations!!!! XOXO
