Rated 1 out of 5Â by Morgs Sheds like mad!
the smaller version of this brush came with the starter kit I bought a month ago. This brush has to be the worst I have ever used. It drives me crazy that every time I use it the bristles have fallen out and I have ticklish hairs all over my face! This brush has shed from the first day I used it, all over my face, clothes and wherever I'm sat doing my make up. I'm just glad I know how bad it is and didn't waste my money on the standard size! On a more positive note, it does give a great even coverage when using any loose powders.

This brush came with the starter kit. initially I thought it worked well, but a few weeks in, the brush has begun to shed heavily. I have to cover my top to stop the hairs sticking to my clothes
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lauren G Not the best brush in my collection!
Soft and full brush but sheds like crazy! Especially the first couple weeks of using it...I use it with my Mac studio fix powder and I also use it with bronzer. Another thing I dont like about the brush is that it made a big dent in my powder after only a couple of times using it, so it absorbs alot of powder!

I feel compelled to write this review because I suddenly realised today that I have had this makeup brush in my kit for over three years and it is still as fresh and new-looking as the day I bought it!
At the time, I wondered why on earth I was spending so much money on a makeup brush when I could get one for a quarter of the price that looked just the same.
Well, after three years of replacing brushes due to hair falling out or handles coming detached or the fibres just not picking up product - I realise why this brush is worth every penny.
It is beautifully soft and fluffy, yet firm enough to direct the powder onto your face without flicking it everywhere. It keeps its shape amazingly well and it is so easy to wash and dry. You can use a special makeup brush cleaner or simply a drop of gentle shampoo and then clean it in warm water. Dry the excess off with a towel and then leave the brush on a flat surface to dry naturally.
It dries quickly and instantly bounces back into shape.
The handle is wonderfully chunky so that you can really get a firm grip and you have complete control over the application of the powder. Oh yes, I must not forget to mention that it works with ANY type of blush or face powder, not just the Bare Minerals brand.
