This is a must have brush in order to apply powder foundation as a concealer. Works great with well rested and foundation. No shedding with daily use and weekly washing. Too bulky to use with crème or liquid concealers.
This is good for applying powder concealer. I've never had a problem with this brush shedding, like most other BE brushes. Had for years and still in great shape.
I purchased mine from eBay since it was half the price compared to sephora.com. I do not know how bare minerals brushes feel like but the handle was really light and didn't seem like high quality. Also the bristles itself was not "packed" like other reviews mentioned. However i noticed the bristles were soft and didn't look like it would shed. As for application, I used it with my cream concealer and it did not blend on to the skin and left steaks. But after testing out for a bit dabbing the product worked a whole lot better and actually gave full coverage. but then I had to blend out the edges with my finger which beats the whole purpose of using a brush. With that being said I think this brush was meant to be used with only powder concealers (since dabbing worked) or I may have received a knockoff. Has anyone purchased it from eBay? I'd be annoyed if I did get a knockoff but only a little bit since I only half the price of the ones being sold on sephora.
I am super happy with this brush. Keep it clean, and it works like a charm every time! Better for under the eyes than for blemishes, but will definitely get the job done either way...
Previously I had been using MAC's 194 Concealer brush. Perhaps I was a novice but at the time I gave it a rave review. In hindsight, it was probably not the best brush to apply concealer to the undereye. Bare Esentuals Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush is a real gem. It's almost like a mini foundation brush - it's perfect for blending concealer to the undereye without streaking or caking.The brush and it's bristles are also very sturdy and easy to clean. Will buy again if I ever need to replace it.
still using this brush years after first starting to use BM. i've moved on from most of their products but this brush is still the perfect size for covering blemishes. i have probably washed it 50 times and it still looks brand new!
Just an amazing brush! You only need a tiny but of concealer/foundation and it spreads it all so evenly!
Got this as part of the Try Believe Love kit and I love it! Most concealer brushes poke my eye, but not this one! It's so soft, but very precise at the same time. I'm very impressed.
I absolutely love this brush. It puts my concealer and Well Rested on quite smoothly and makes those products easy to deal with. I did find it left a bit to be desired when I used the cream concealer from BM and Pur Minerals, but my powder products react well with it. Application is quick and easy - it's definitely one of my favorite brushes in my kit!
This is a good concealer brush for BE products (which is what I use).
It's very stiff, though, but that isn't a bad thing. It's good quality, and is better than the Sephora concealer brush I have for my purposes.
I did poke it into a tiny, invisible pimple I had under my nose, and it hurt like hell, but otherwise, I've had no trouble. The stiffness can hurt if you have a sensitive spot *and* you're being careless, like I was.
I wish all BE brushes were of this level of quality.
