    I sure wish I knew what brush I could use for blush that doesn't shed horribly or cause scratching pain to my face! This brush is just awful and I have not even owned it for a year. For this price, I would expect much better quality. Disappointed is an understatement.

    I received this with a starter kit....and my review is the same as most!! Worked well at first then sheds and the bristles aren't soft at all!! I have to pick all the tiny hairs off my face!!! It's annoying! I emailed the company and they claim this shouldn't happen, and they would send me a new brush....but not until I send mine back and wait for the new one..! In the mean time how do I apply my foundation?? They understood my predicament but promised I would get a new one as soon as they've received mine. Needless to say I can't be bothered, and will buy a new one at Walmart and see if its any better. Just unfortunate for a $28 brush, the complaints seem all the same and they would fix the problem and know that I'm not making this up in order to get a new brush that I got 2 months ago...I forgot to mention that's how long I've had it!!!

    I received this brush in my start kit, along with the flawless face brush and full coverage concealer brush, which I have had for a little over a month. The full flawless brush is just okay. Yes I have lost a few hairs, but nothing like the flawless brush, which is so bad, I don't use it at all. This brush is okay, but yes I am having a shedding problem as everyone else is. Glad that all were part of the kit, because two out of three, I won't be using. Concealer brush is the only, so far, that seems to be holding up, but then again, it doesn't get used daily.

    I can't believe this is $28! I have never had such a horrible brush! I can't even put on my makeup without the brush hair getting all over my face, shirt, etc.! I would love if I could get a credit or be allowed to return my brush so I could get something else. Please stop selling this brush, and if you're thinking about buying this DON'T!

    It's so unfortunate that this brush comes in the kit, let alone exists at all. It drives me crazy when I see the worthwhile products a brand can churn out, then send this worthless brush to everyone. Synthetic hair, such as Taklon, is usually your best bet versus an animal hair brush. I would trust the reviews on here as far as brushes go if you're uncertain. This Full Flawless Face Brush gets one star from me because it's rough and sheds on every use. And because you can pay for one the same amount with reviewers raving about it. It should be discontinued now and forever.The Brushes in this line are impressive, with almost as many options as makeup artist–driven lines such as M.A.C. Unfortunately, many of them use hair that isn’t as soft as it could be, or they aren’t shaped as well as others. Among the best options are the Precision Liner Brush ($12); Soft Focus Liner, and Soft Focus Shadow brushes($22-$24); *Blending Brush ($18), *Flawless Application Face Brush ($22), *Eye Defining Brush ($16), *Tapered Shadow Brush ($14),*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush ($18), Eyeliner Brush ($12), and Crease Defining Brush ($18).*Blending Brush is made of pony and goat hair, but seems to be a quality exception.*Flawless Application Face Brush is made of goat hair. Works, but sheds enough to upset users, and most would rather use a kabuki brush anyway.*Eye Defining Brush is made of pony hair, but no reviews have stated it sheds at all.*Tapered Shadow Brush is made of goat, ox and pony hair, no reviews claim it sheds.*Wet/Dry Shadow Brush is made of pony hair. From the praises, this looks to be a must-have.*Crease Defining Brush is made of goat hair. No shedding, no complaints.

    I spent $28.00 plus tax for this brush that sheds all over my face and the handle fell off!! I do not use make up every day so I really expected it to last more than a couple of months!! Save your money!!If there was a negative rating box for this product, I would give it a -5!!xo . s

    I've had this brush for almost three years and it is still a great brush! I need full coverage to cover acne scars and this is the only brush that has worked for me. Yes, it does shed, but I don't even care about that because overall it is a great brush and it has still stayed the same after three years of using and washing it!!

    Like its smaller counterpart, the Flawless Face Brush, I have a love/hate relationship with this brush. On the one hand, it provides great coverage for my MATTE foundation; it blends it well into my skin and gives me the flawless, medium-coverage look I want. On the other hand, it does shed quite a bit; also, after washing it, it loses some of its integrity and fans out.Overall, this brush does what it is supposed to do; I just wish for a staple brush in their collection that the bristles would be a little more comfortable - maybe with synthetic bristles.

    I LOVE this brush... but I use the READY compact foundations, so this created a "hole" in my foundations as I would use it. Which is okay, but now that I've hit pan, its a pain to get the foundation on the brush evenly without ripping chunks out of the foundation READY compact. So, while I love the amount of coverage this brush provides, I think it is much more compatible with the containers of foundation. I don't really want to use the Precision Face Brush, as that's too thick of an application for me. So, I guess I have to deal witht he way this wonderful brush annihilates my READY compact.

    This is an awful brush. I have had it for 3mos and it sheds terribly!! It came in a kit I bought. Wish I had know about the return policy when I bought it from a BM boutique. I would have gotten something different. I do not recommend this to anyone and sincerely hope BM takes this out of their starter kits.

    great size, soft on skin. Perfect for mineral makeup. Great go-to brush for color, bronzer, or mineral veil.

    This brush sheds really bad. After applying foundation it takes a few minutes to pick all of the bristles from my face. I take a blow dryer and blow my clothes in hopes of removing them all. I don't have animals, but after applying makeup each morning it looks like I am covered with animal hair.

    This brush came with my get started kit and i wish i could return just this brush. It sheds little brush hairs on my face, which stick to the makeup and i have to pick them off while also trying not to mess up the makeup i just applied. Plus it's pretty rough. This morning I finally used a different brush, which is very soft, and it made a world of difference!! No more shedding and so much softer. Everyone, get a different brush!!!! You will be so much happier.

    I cannot stand to use this brush. I've been using it for 7 months now and am DYING for a new brush. Even after proper cleaning, the brush continues to shed. The little blonde hairs end up in my long dark brown hair and are impossible to remove. Definitely do not recommend!

    Got this in the starter kit when I first started using bare minerals a few months ago. It worked great (had some shedding) and then I eventually had to wash it because of the makeup that built up. I feel like it all went downhill after that. After using it a couple times the hairs were really course and itchy on my face and it sheds all over my shirt and face after each use. Still provides a decent coverage but not worth all the hassle.

    Bare Minerals foundation is such a fantastic product. But I'm afraid they skimped on the most basic of brushes. It's not very soft, and does not last. I use the brush that comes with the Hydrating Mineral Veil for applying my foundation. It is soft, does a great job, and is well worth the money, and I keep it clean. I've also used brushes from another source, and have had better success. The makeup deserves a better brush.

    I absolutely loved the coverage that this brush provided...not too heavy but just enough to provide a natural, healthy looking skin. Unfortunately I was very disappointed to discover how MUCH this brush sheds. The bristles break off with every usage and I am left picking off bristles off of my face. I purchased a 2nd brush thinking that perhaps my first one was defective. No luck...I even purchased the brush cleaner hoping it would 'recondition' the brush. Nada! I desperately wanted to use this brush but will have to start shopping around for a different brand :(

    This brush is poorly made and will slowly fall apart with every use. After a few days it will scratch your face and leave it irritated!!! Don't buy this brush, trust me! If I could give it a zero rating I would!

    I thought I was the only one having this issue with this brush-it sheds like crazy. When I called the BE store about it, they said that I was pushing too hard on the brush but I tried using it softer and the bristles still fall out.

    This brush is alright. It comes with the started kit but I am looking into getting the handy buki brush because I need a tighter bristle brush. It works well and cleans up very nice with the brush shampoo.

    This brush gives the fullest coverage out of all the BE brushes, but this one sheds all the time, especially after you wash it. I need a pair of tweezers by my side after using the brush to remove errant hairs.

    I hate this brush, it is horriable. Its like trying to use a blush brush to apply your foundation. The Handi Buki is way better ! The Handi Buki is by far the best brush! and i don't know the correct spelling of The Handi Buki so sorry if its wrong..

    The “Full Flawless Application Face Brush” came with my start kit. I absolutely LOVE the make up! I spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer, the old makeup I used to wear felt like it was just melting off my face, it felt heavy and like my skin couldn’t breathe. With BE I no longer feel like that. However this brush is horrible, it sheds more than my two dogs while they are blowing their winter coats. The bristles are rough and feel scratchy. I have used the “Soft Focus Face Brush” for my blush and absolutely love it.I do wish BE would rethink and redo the “Full Flawless Application Face Brush”.

    I really love BE products and doubt I'll ever use another cosmetic line in the future, being that I'm 29 I plan to have a long relationship with BE. However, this brush in particular sheds something awful. I've actually taken to stashing a mini lint brush in my purse and desk at work to deal with the mess this brush creates. I thought at first that perhaps I was just too heavy handed, but even when using the lightest stroke and amount of pressure possible this thing still sheds. I would literally have nothing negative to say about this line if this brush held up better. I've had it for less than 3 months now and have followed the care instructions meticulously so this can't be blamed on user error. With other brands of brushes I have been able to keep and use them for years just by practicing good care and following the instructions. At the rate this brush is balding though I will be surprised if it lasts me a full year.

    This brush is perfect! I have combination skin and so get blemishes here and there. I also have acne scars that appear on my chin. This brush applies the perfect amount of my bare mineral foundation to my face; and with an extra "swirl, tap, and buff" to my chin you cannot see anything except "perfect" skin (no scars)!!! I also use this brush to apply my mineral veil. It sheds for the first few uses only. The handle is comfortable to hold because it is chunky. I definitely recommend this to anyone who applies BE foundation!
