Not sure how else to describe this brush other than that it just plainly sucks. If anyone thinks this brush is even decent, they are definitely missing out on good quality brushes that you can buy for a fraction of the BE's cost, namely Ecotools. I do not understand who will actually buy this brush other than the fact that it just comes in a kit. I would NEVER buy this on a standalone basis. Worst brush I have ever used in my life.

This is odd to say, but I actually prefer brushes that have some form and are a little more sturdy, so I like that this isn't overly soft. (I hate floppy soft brushes. They're totally worthless in my opinion!)
I do not use this for all over powder, I use it as a bronzing brush. I find Kabuki brushes to be too big most the time and I end up bronzing most of my face rather than highlighting cheekbones and temples.
This works perfectly for this purpose. I love the shorter handle and shape. The price made me wince a little at 22$, but there definitly are more expensive brushes out there. Definitly in the minority here, but I like this brush!

I have 3 of these that came with various BE sets that I bought. Sold separately, it too expensive for what it is. I tried using it with my BE Matte & Original foundations. It only gave slight coverage whereas the Handy Buki & Heavenly Face brushes give almost full coverage. It does make a good brush for finishing/setting powder & blush. It also feels very soft and isn't scratchy at all. But, since I already have 3 of these, I won't buy one on it's own.

This is by far the WORST makeup brush i have ever used. It feels like needles poking into my face and it sheds like CRAZY. i can pull off at least 5 little blond hairs from my face every time I use it. I have washed it with the bare escentuals brush cleaner and it kept shedding more and more every time. Even after washing it with conditioner like all the makeup gurus recommend, it sheds. I HATE this brush with a burning passion. I also think its awful in design and color because the bristles are like a blondish tan color. This makes it nearly impossible to see how much product you have picked up after swirling in the lid.
If you do purchase bare minerals foundations for the first time, take my advice and buy another brand makeup brush (the elf kabuki one is cheap and amazingly soft like pearls).

At frist use this was a soft, beautiful brush that held and applied my mineral makeup well. I take very good care of my brushes: wash regularly and even condition when feeling rough, reshape and lay flat to dry. Over time the bristles lost their shape and started breaking off at the ferrell. It was almost like the swirl tap buff procedure was causing the breakdown of the brush. I swear I dont grind my powder onto my face! This was confusing to me. I also noticed the little hairs tended to entangle with each other so I even took a comb to my brush to work the hairs free. This made it softer but still not as it was when new. This brush also shed like crazy the entire time I've ovned it and I bet if I ran my fingers across it now I'd still get a few hairs to fall out. I only got about 4 months of daily use from it until I moved on. I'm glad this came in the kit because I would be very mad at its quality if I had payed full price. I now apply my powder with my ecotools bronzer brush and havn't had a single issue with it.

i belive this to be one of the most univeral brushes made. it contours, applys sheer to medium coverage foundation, replaces a powder brush. it works great with both loose and pressed powder. it also if used correctly, makes a pretty decent blush brush. i love brushes that are multi-talented, this is definatly one to have at home. WARNING. it is natural hair bristles so, you must shampoo it once a week with a simple moisturizing shampoo. keeps it clean as well as conditions the bristles. this brush, if maintained properly, can last for a while.

This brush sucks! it's scratchy, it sheds, it's just horrible. It always left my face so red and irritated. All BE's brushes are horrible in my experience. Never again.

I dont understand the negativity. I have 3 of these brushes and they're not hard or scratchy at all. I use them to apply my face powder and it's perfect.

I must not know what a good brush is like since I think this one is pretty good. Actually I have 2 of them, and rotate their use, washing each periodically. It feels OK to me, not scratchy like other reviewers say. This one works fime for me.

This isn't a very good brush for the price. When I first started using mineral cosmetics it was BE, and I bought all the brushes recommended by the SA since I didn't know better. I treated them well and washed them carefully but in the year or so that I used BE I went through three of these. They're not that soft to begin with and they get rougher and rougher. Results with this seemed good to begin with - but only because I had no basis for comparison. These shed quite a bit - not as bad as the Kabuki though.
