For use with loose powder foundation, too?
Description for this brush says for use with Ready Foundation. Can it also be used with the original loose powder foundation?

I don't see why you couldn't use it with loose bare mineral powder. I have a broken compact that I put in a small jar and use with this brush and its basically powder and its still awesome.

Yes you can, but I found that it "grabs" too much of the makeup. With the original powder foundation, you can tap the access off. But, with the compact you cannot. The brush is very dense. I prefer the older type of brush....and the original makeup.

I've used it for both but think it is better suited for the Ready foundation. The other face brushes seem better with the loose foundation--the full face and kabuki brushes are my faves for the loose ones.

I do use mine with Makeup Forever HD liquid foundation and it works great. Just requires cleaning because the liquid product does tend to build up if left on the brush. Having to clean it often is worth the payoff because it applies the liquid foundation beautifully.

I use it with liquid foundation (NAKED) and I will never use anything else to apply liquid foundation. This brush is life-changing.

I've used this brush for a cream/liquid blush and foundation before and I'm not crazy about it. The coverage went on sheer and light because a lot of product was left on the brush. It felt like such a waste!!

I guess I can see that it would work if you are the type of person that cleans their brushes after every use. I'm not and i found the liquid makes it unusable the next time unless I washed it first.

I like this brush to use for contouring and powder based products.

Well, I'm from Canada so the price for this brush and the Shiseido brush are only about $3 off. I have the Shiseido brush and although I don't have this one specifically, after doing some (although limited) research on this brush, it seems that both brushes seem similar but are a bit different in what they're meant to do.

The Shiseido is described as a "dabbing/stippling" brush for liquid and cream foundations, while the BM brush is designed for the READY Foundation. The READY is a pressed-powder foundation, and it seems that the brush can be used with loose powder as well, but I don't think it can work well with liquid or cream foundations like the Shiseido. This is mostly because the bristles for the BM brush looks longer - which would be fine for buffing in powders, but wouldn't provide the control for liquid/cream foundations.

By comparison, the Shiseido has dense, shorter bristles that allows more control for liquidy foundations. I've heard that you can use it with powder as well, but I've never tried it. The brush head for Shiseido is very small and I would imagine it to be buff-unfriendly, unlike the BM brush.

So I would say that both look similar, but the minor differences set it apart. If you want a brush for loose-powder or pressed-powder foundation, use the Bare Minerals Brush, but if you're looking for a brush for liquid or cream foundation, go for the Shiseido (or any other brush you'd like).

Mine has lasted a long time. It did get hard after I washed it the first time. It pretty much ruined the softness. I'm looking at different ways to wash it though...maybe a spot clean because I absolutely love this brush.

In my experience, if properly taken care of, Bare Minerals brushes can last for years. I spray mine with the Sephora Daily Brush cleaner every day and handwash about once a month, and mine is still in great condition.

Question
Can this brush be used to apply pressed powder on top of liquid foundation?
Will it take off or mess up the foundation and concealer you've already applied? Also, is this good for applying pressed foundation foundation that's not BM?

YES! You can definitely use it to apply liquid foundation. It's actually the only thing I use it for. I LOVE it and get the BEST coverage I've ever had. So glad I finally found something that works for applying foundation.

I use this brush to apply liquid foundation most of the time, and I usually use a rounded kabuki brush http://www.sephora.com/classic-natural-kabuki-brush-48-P379544?skuId=1504505 to apply powders. I don't think I'd use it to apply finishing powder over liquid foundation. But I do really love it!!
