Questions & Answers for Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush

Question
Cover included for top?
I would assume it would show in the photo if it did, but does this brush come with some sort of cover or cap for the bristle end? I throw all of my brushes into one bag and only clean once a week, so a cover is essential for me to ensure that powder doesn't get all over my makeup bag and that dirt doesn't get onto the brush.

Thank you so much! I know Sephora's line of "Pro" brushes (but not their "Classic" brushes) have covers, but the only reason I knew that was because I saw them in stores (online doesn't show the covers for most of the "Pro" brushes). I was hoping this one did, but oh well!

Nope - no cover or top or anything, like far too many brushes! Nothing to protect them or keep them clean in your makeup bag. I'm always surprised that even most expensive brushes don't come with a package of some sort to keep them clean. Best bet is to pop this into a Zip Loc bag or a small plastic container of some sort.

Can this Tarte Airbuki Brush be used for bronzer?

The brush is very dense so your bronzer may not go on smooth meaning you may just get brown circles on your face. Not a good brush to blend your bronzer in with.

I recently travelled with it and would easily throw it in my purse for on the go. I find because the Airbuki is a short brush it doesn't take up a lot of space even when stored in the box.

It's definitely portable and travel-friendly, but personally for me it's too dense to use for bronzer; I definitely reserve it for buffing mineral foundation. Go to Sephora and check it out to see if it's too dense for you. :)

Yes, this brush works great for liquid foundations. I (personally) apply my liquid foundations with a flat top foundation brush, my fingers or beauty blender, and I then use this brush as a final step to really buff the product into my skin. It looks amazing!

Question
Liquid foundation?
Has anyone tried this brush with liquid foundation? What are your experiences? I love this brush and have been using it with my bareMinerals loose powder, but recently learned that it'd be better for me to make a switch to liquid foundation due to my dry skin. :( I don't want to return it though, it's such a nice brush, but loose powder makes my skin look so flakey. Can I use it when I start buying liquid foundation?

Question
Would I be able to use this brush to apply my bare minerals foundation?
I find that the brush I was given when i purchased bare minerals original loose powder foundation, tends to shed a lot and it's so small which makes it take longer to apply the powder all over my face evenly. I noticed this brush looks a lot bigger and it's gotten great reviews, but I wasn't sure if it was only suppose to be used to apply the tarte amozonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation. I was wondering if it would be alright if I used it to apply my bare minerals powder foundation and if it would help me apply to my face quicker.

I would definitely say that it was designed especially for the airbrush foundation but I think it would still work fine with the Bare Minerals one. It might deposit a bit more product than necessary, though, so I would definitely make sure to tap of the excess. But it is a great brush and it really buffs powers into the skin really, really nicely. Hope this helped!!

This is SO much better than the kabuki I had from bareminerals. This one feels pleasantly heavy but is not big. If you google image search for tarte airbuki you will see lots of pictures of people holding it, to get a good idea of size. The tarte brush has very dense brushes and hasn't shed once in the 10 months I've owned it!

answer 3
That's is exactly what I use my Airbuki for, to buff in my BM Hydrating Mineral Veil (after applying an SPF BB cream). It results in an utterly natural finish (I glow!) and does not allow the powder to settle in pores and fine lines. The short, dense bristles of this brush create smooth, even and complete coverage in LESS TIME than the more flexible powder foundation brushes. I own two Airbukis, one to use while the other dries after cleaning. And they don't shed bristles.

I think this would be considered travel friendly because of it's size. It arrives as pictured, it's not retractable, the handle fits right in your hand (imagine you're cupping a tennis ball with a brush on the end). There's no cover, but the bristles are so dense i doubt they would be compromised in a normal purse pocket or makeup bag.

I guess you could, but I wouldn't recommend it because of it's shape and the depth of bristles I don't think that it would give you a very good liquid foundation application. It's really designed for powder foundations. Tarte makes a liquid foundation brush that would be much better suited for the job of applying liquid makeup. Hope this helps.
