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!
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.
Yes, I apply Bare Minerals with this brush with no problem. It really buffs the product in.
