(this review is based on my own experience of using this product, again, different users have different opinions)
Anybody who reads my blog would know that I am not a loyal MMU user. I do use mineral e/s, foundation but not all over.
The first MMU brand that I got addicted to is the Bare Escentuals MMU. I ordered a full size foundation and a flawless face brush to start up my MMU addiction. I don't have problems with the foundie but I got super disappointed with my BE Flawless face brush.
Here's how the FF brush looks like
Bare Escentuals FF Brush says (from Sephora site) ---
With a short handle and its bristles made of ultra soft goat hair, this Flawless Application face brush will evenly distribute your bareMinerals Foundation, All-Over face color, and blush, leaving a flawless finish every time.
Askmewhats says ---
- definitely does pick up the minerals better than ordinary brushes
- I like the length, not too long and not too short, easy to use
- look quite professional and cute!
- doesn't shed too much
- when newly purchased, it does smell but nothing too bad
- SOFT at the start, but after several uses, it HURTS my face too much!
- Price : with it's price, you can buy better brushes
sorry but NO
The first time I used this brush, I was so happy and this was my favorite brush. After several washes (take note: I wash this once or twice a week with Johnson's baby shampoo) and as seen on photo above, I took care of it and it's still in good condition. When you use your finger to test the brush, it is SOFT! But when you use this brush on your face, something just ain't right. It is harsh on your face and I honestly can't pinpoint what is the problem with this. It could be the shape of the brush. I have tested this to all my family members! Even brushing this to their faces just to have the "feel" test and they all said the same thing... "OUCH!"
I have taken care of this brush,
using baby shampoo
and spritz it with leave-in conditioner after every wash
I have done my part right?
So this is a YAY or NAY?
(I go NAY)
