Question
Liquid Foundation?
I recently went into a Sephora store looking for a new liquid foundation. The sales woman was very helpful and she helps me find a great foundation. She also suggested I get this "great brush that will work great!" It says mineral POWDER. I don't want to ruin this expensive brush! Is it okay to use with liquid foundation?

This will work well with liquid foundation since it is made with synthetic fibers. Your foundation will apply to the skin smoothly and evenly.

absolutely yes! that is the reason why i got it, i kept seeing girls use a mineral brush as a foundation brush on youtube so i went to sephora and they recommended me this mineral powder brush and i use it on the reg with my make up forever face liquid after priming. i actually put the liquid on my hand first to warm it up then dab the brush into it a little bit to catch.
i also use it with my dr jart bb cream and it works amazing with that as well, better than the little foundation brushes!

If I were you I would not use a mineral powder brush for liquid foundation. The only brush I have ever used with liquid foundation is an actual foundation brush that looks more like a paint brush. I would suggest exchanging the mineral powder brush for a foundation brush if you really want to use a brush to put on your foundation. I prefer to put a drop on the top of my hand and use my fingers and a sponge to blend it in.

This brush is made with synthetic bristles so it won’t absorb your liquid foundation. To achieve an airbrushed finish, apply liquid foundation to face first. Then use this brush to buff, using circular motions starting in the center of your face and moving out. Hope that helps!

Comparing Brushes
I am interested in buying a brush to use on a daily basis from the Sephora Professional Collection. I use Bare Minerals make up and wanted to know if this brush would be okay to use to help apply and blend in the mineral foundation and mineral veil. I was trying to decide between this brush and #53 Complexion Brush from the same line.

I also use Bare Esscentuals. My BE Kabuki brush fell apart on me the other day, so I decided to try this one out on the recommendation of the Sephora sales associate. I like this brush much better than the Kabuki. the long handle gives you more control and the smaller head allows you better applications around your nose and the smaller areas. The bristles are much softer and less scratchy than the Kabuki was, but still firm enough to buff without a problem.

Unfortunately it doesn't but I highly recommend Brush Guards. They're really good and they protect the bristles from bacteria and other stuff you don't want to have in your brush when carrying it out. They also help keep the shape or your brush when you wash it. Excellent product! In my opinion its a must have for brushes! They come in different sizes to fit all your brushes and is reusable. You just wash it and you can use it again! Hope your daughter found the right brush!

If you use it everyday, you can spot clean it between uses with brush cleanser (MAC brush cleanser/Parisian Spirit are my favs). If you don't spot clean, then I'd wash it once a week. Spot cleaning with give you a cleaner brush with less washing (aka Deep Cleaning). Also if you just lightly squeeze out the extra water with your hands- and you can also take a towel and wrap it around the brush and squeeze out more (just do it lightly or hairs might fall out). Lay it FLAT to dry on a counter- make sure the brush head is peeking out over the flat surface. Hope this helps!

Baby Shampoo is the cheapest and one of the best ways to clean your brushes. I prefer using Philosophy's Grace 3-in-1 Shampoo/Body/etc. because is makes my brushes smell AMAZING afterwards!! Run the brush under cold water in your sink, get it wet. Apply the shampoo in the palm of your hand. And swirl the brush in the shampoo- swirling it in the palm of your hand. When you go to rinse it, make sure the brush is facing DOWN so that no water gets into the ferrule of the brush (which eventually causes the glue to loosen and the brush separates from the handle). I repeat this washing process twice. If you've gone a long time without washing it, repeat it three times. To dry: Lightly squeeze out the rest of the water. Then lay the brush OVER a counter top (bathroom counter/table/etc.) I put a towel underneath. Hope this helps!!

Hi - I wash mine with the Sephora Antibacterial cleaner about twice a week or so depending on how often during the week I use it. You can also use a gentle shampoo, like a baby one. I pump a bit of the cleaner into the palm of my hand, wet the brush bristles with water and then swirl the brush in my palm. The stuff comes right off and down the sink. Depending on how bad it is, I'll repeat again, squeeze out any excess and rinse the brush. I leave it on a towel overnight and it's dry by morning..if still a little damp, I just use a blow dryer to finish it off. Never let the brush dry standing up like you would store it between uses and don't run the handle under water, this will ruin it. Hope that helps.

Synthetic brushes are easily cleaned with some alcohol. It will not damage the brush. I would suggest spritzing it with some alcohol or brush cleaner and then wiping it on a paper towel until all of the color on the brush is wiped away. After you should leave it out on a paper towel and it should dry over night. Another option is brush cleaner wipes- which sephora sells (or used to sell) for under $10. Good luck!

I wash mine once a week and I use the brush daily. If you are using mineral powder this should be frequent enough. My brush dries overnight, it should not take 4 days. Just moisten the bristles so they are damp and use a little of Sephora's brush shampoo (it is the best), then rub the shampoo into the bristles by swirling it in your hand. Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze excess moisture out. Then lay it horizontally somewhere that the bristles are exposed on all sides, I lay mine so just the bristles hang off the side of my makeup table. Hope that helps!

The best way to clean and sanitize synthetic brushes is just with straight isopropyl alcohol 70% or higher. A tiny bit of dishwashing soap (because it removes grease) is also good to remove excess product. Traditional brush cleaner often have silicones or oils in them which are meant to condition animal hair brushes. These types of cleaners will usually leave a film on the synthetic brushes. Just 70% or higher alcohol or dishwashing soap is necessary. Make sure to rinse well to get the alcohol smell out or soap and squeeze excess moisture out of your bristles before laying it flat to dry. As long as you are not oversaturating your brush with either water or cleaner, you squeeze out extra moisture, your brush will dry overnight.

I use a makeup brush cleaner for daily spot cleaning & every few days clean in thoroughly. If you make sure you squeeze it out & lay it sideways it should be dry the next morning (mine is) BUT you can opt to use a brush guard that you can find at:
http://www.thebrushguard.com/
THIS way you can dry it w/the bristles pointing in a downward motion in a clear glass w/out ruining the bristles (b/c the brush guard is stiff enough to support the brush).
You'll also be amazed @ how much water will run out into the bottom of the glass (which means no water leaking into the ferrule to loosen up the bristles...which is a good thing b/c it will improve the longevity of the brush!)
I spot clean mine brush cleaner...Sephora puts out a great brush cleanser...just spray some on a paper towel & gently swipe the bristles of the brush back & forth to clean them. It will dry relatively fast (just as long as you're not "soaking" the bristles wet w/the brush cleaner)
I hope this helps you!! :)

okay, for face brushes, i like to wash mine once a week. i wash it with baby shampoo and luke warm water (not too hot, not too cold). word of advice. wash it right after your morning make up application, this way it will at least be dry for your next application, either later on in the day or the next morning.

after washing, ring out all the water then towel dry it to squeeze the excess water out. do not dry it vertically with the brush part on top. the water seeps into the roots and decreases the brushs longevity. dry it either vertically with the brush part facing down, or horizontally on a papertowel.

sephora makes this great spray for in between washes...but i forget what its called (sorry) lol it acts like a disinfectant too. i hope i was able to answer your question a little, at least! ; )

If you use it every day on clean skin, you shouldn't have to wash it more than once a week or so (plus apparently it's been treated to prevent bacteria from building up). Use a brush cleaner or baby shampoo, and make sure to gently squeeze all excess water from the brush afterwards. You can also wrap it in a soft cloth and gently squeeze, so the water absorbs into the cloth. Lay it on it's side with the bristles hanging over the edge so that moisture doesn't collect at the base of the bristles.

You could use a hair dryer at low heat to speed up the drying process but it might be a little hard on it. Hope that helps.

Hello! I saw your question, and I just had to put my two cents in :o) I bought this brush specifically as a blush brush when I bought some MUFE HD cream blush--and it works like a dream! Cream, baked, and mineral powder blushes--whatever you want to wear, this brush blends and buffs with precision. Your apples will glow! I can't say enough about this brush for blush. And you only need a small amount of blush at a time--this brush, because it is a mineral makeup brush, just builds and builds the colour as deeply as you want to go. I don't think you will regret buying this brush, but if you don't love it as much as I do, you can always return it. I hope that helps!

It is a standard size brush, about 6" long, not travel size and has no case. The size of the head is about the size of a 50 cent piece.

It doesn't come with a soft case but it does have the plastic cone around the neck. I put it back in the plastic cone after each use to help keep it nice.

It's a full size brush so it just depends on how big your purse is.
But it's definitely bigger than a standard travel size.

The BE Buki brush is far superior. I disagree with the other answers. I found this brush to be too small. Yes, it's soft. That's about all. Just too small to get anything done! I sat there for, like, 45 min. trying to build my mineral foundation, and that was WITHOUT a setting powder! I wish I would have sent this brush back. I don't understand why so many people seem to be in love with tiny brush.

Yes, in fact I think it's better. The bristles seem much softer and the coverage is flawless. It makes my skin look like I'm not wearing makeup at all.

This is much better than the Bare Essential one. The reason I got this one is to substitute my Bare Mineral one whose hair is to hard and scratch my face. This brush is so soft and dense, and give you flawless looking. just love it.

This brush is 1000 times better than the handi buki. This brush is much softer and doesn't shed. It also applies the foundation in buildable layers. I found that the handi buki would apply too much color and look heavy.

I think it's great. I like it better. My Bare Minerals brush didn't hold up and I love this one as an alternative :) Softer on the face and nice smooth application. Application may take a tiny bit longer because the brush is just a tad smaller.

The #45 brush is very similar to the buki brush--especially its dense bristles. However, this brush is snythetic and does not shed like the BE brushes. It's definitely a keeper!

This product's handle is about 11/2" longer than the Flawless Face brush, and its bristles are shorter, tighter, and are completely synthetic.

The brush head is smaller and the bristles are much softer. I feel like the smaller head on this brush allows for better control with powder foundation, but the BE brush would be better (if the bristles stayed in the brush!) for finishing powder (like mineral veil). And it feels nicer than the BE brush on my face.

It's smaller, but much more dense and much softer than BE.
I actually really liked my BE brushes, until I tried this one. But I had to replace my BE because it sheds SOOOO much. The only thing the flawless coverage BE brush has going on the Sephora Mineral Brush is how much product it applies at a time (see review :))

The head of this brush is smaller and the bristles are more tightly packed together than the BE flawless face brush. I prefer this one because the bristles are synthetic and very soft.

It's a little smaller in size so the application takes a little more time, but the finish is wonderful :) Plus, it holds up so much better and feels so much more smooth on the face! Love mine. I purchased this brush when my Bare Minerals flawless face brush fell apart even with appropriate care :(

This brush is slightly smaller than the flawless face brush; however, it is still the perfect size to fit in the lid of the BE foundation. I find that I like the smaller size even better to get around the creases of my nose. And this brush DOESN'T SHED! I don't think you will be disappointed....

Agree with other poster. The brush it compares to in terms of size is the BE Handy Buki. (Almost identical in size and function to it.)

I have been looking for a long time for a better quality brush that provides full coverage like the handy buki. This brush has totally done that! I LOVE this brush! HTH!

This brush is smaller than the BE Flawless Face but far more effective. The density and softness of the bristles means you can achieve better coverage with less foundation.
