I love the brush for the first month until the hairs start falling out. I clean it gently and carefully, much more gently than any other brush that doesn't shed. Seeing all these thumbs down reviews I would think your company would come up with something else or charge far less.

I bought the Bare Skin and brush together. When i tried it it applied the foundation streaky, uneven and cakey. I tried it with a sponge and it gives way more coverage, doesn't look streaky and not very cakey. So i suggest that they bring out a sponge to apply the foundation. This brush is expensive so save your money and buy a sponge.

I have other brushes from bare minerals that I adore, but this one is a nightmare. I wash it the same way I do the others (baby shampoo and a brush mat) and all the fibers are falling out. It was a lovely brush until this started happening, not worth it.

I'm a firm fan of Bare Minerals products except for their brushes. I have totally given up on them. At first they are exceptional but after washing - however gently - they shed hair and gradually become impossible to use

This is my third brush and every time after 6/8 months it starts shedding. I went to the Tuttle Mall and the sales wasn't very helpful at all and wasn't willing to replace the brush. She said the brush needs cleaned and I told her I clean it once a month with your clearer. I like the brush needs to be improved so it doesn't keep shedding. Or at lease it you don't replace the brush at lease give a 50% off.

I've given up on these brushes, and, therefore have had to give up on the foundation serum which needs to be applied using these brushes (normal foundation brushes won't distribute it effectively, as the Bare Minerals reps confirm). The serum foundation is nice & I liked using it, but these brushes are a disaster. They are very hard to wash because the foundation gets stuck right at the base of the bristles which are sunk into the brush handle so very hard to access. I would need to keep adding shampoo, massaging it in, rinsing and repeating over & over before the water ran anything close to clear (to show all foundation removed). Consequently, no matter how gently I did this, the bristles become loose and within a few weeks they are falling out into the sink (& even onto your face during application) and the brush head is uneven with many bristles partially coming out. I went through several brushes before I gave up. They're too expensive to be replacing every couple of months, I was spending too much money on brush shampoo, and I was fed up with how much time I was spending washing them.

I've been through 4 of these brushes since the liquid foundation came out. You can only use a brush with this foundation or it doesn't go on correctly and you will waste tons of product. This brush does the job until you try to clean it. It is ridiculously difficult to clean and you really need to get brushes clean when using liquid foundation. Bristles fall out every single time and the brush will eventually fall apart completely. It doesn't matter how gentle you are or what brush cleaner you use. I've tried all the tricks the sales ladies have suggested and nothing works! I used to avoid cleaning it because of this! I'm using a different brush per their suggestion but it doesn't work as well. I have a different brush from you that is still in great shape after 6 years so this brush must just be poorly designed. I'm ready to quit using the liquid completely because of this brush which is a shame because it is the only foundation that works with my extremely fair skin. Please redesign this awful brush before you lose a 10 year customer!!! After 4 of these, I've had it!!!

I have this brush and it was great for putting on the product but as soon as it's been washed, and no I didn't submerge it in water, all the bristles are falling out leaving my face covered in hair.
You're better off buying cheaper brushes which you can either throw away or which I have honestly found don't disintegrate on your face once they've been washed

I loved this brush when I first received it. Application was flawless and it felt great on my skin. I really loved the design of the brush. I washed it once, no problems though it did take a few more rinses than I usually do to get it clean. The SECOND time I washed it the brush hairs started falling out. Now they are falling out in clumps, I'm still attempting to use the brush however the application is very messy. It leaves lines of foundation and brush hairs all over my face. Any one have any brush alternatives?
Rated 1 out of 5 by SouthernRebel Worst Brush I've ever bought
do not buy this brush, you would be better off buying a brush from covergirl! It sheds constantly and doesn't even apply makeup evenly and the brush isn't soft on your skin. The main issue is the fact that it sheds SO MUCH everywhere and gets stuck all over your face so you have to pick the pieces off your face after applying.
