You will LOVE this brush!!

-August 8, 2011
If your like me and you carry your makeup bag with you, this portable brush is perfect. It allows me to leave home the bulky powder case and I can actually put in my pocket to touch up oils all day without carrying around a bag. It's a full size brush and the container will hold enough powder to last you all day, if not longer. Also you can add multiple color shades of powder for day/or night wear. Its a great brush, I do not leave the house without it.

I LOVE IT!!!

-October 29, 2010
Like the reviewer below, I had read bad reviews and, like her, chalked it up to user error. I ordered one anyway as I knew I could return it. Well...I LOVE it!!! I agree that the markers don't exactly end at the places indicated on the barrel, but I just turn the knob, listen for 2 clicks and it's open! I see the powder on the brush and start applying. There's no wasted product and no powder all over my dressing table or my clothes! It dispenses enough for a light application...which is what I like. After all, isn't Bare Minerals called a "buildable" foundation? If I feel I need more coverage, I turn the brush up-side-down, shake it once or twice and apply more. I have rosacea on one side of my face and generally need a little extra there. Again, I just give it a shake and buff right over the red area...and it's gone! I actually like mine so much that I ordered a small limited-edition version from another site to put my Mineral Veil in it for my purse. I'm getting ready to order another full size one for the Mineral Veil to use at my dressing table. What more can I say...I LOVE IT!

Bad Design

-July 26, 2009
I'd read reviews of this brush on another site and they were generally unfavorable. I attributed it to user error. So many people don't read directions or read them without comprehension. I saw the brush in a store and played around with it and really liked the concept so I ordered it here. I've tried on and off for one month and have given up and am returning it.
Others complained about the powder not dispensing properly (or in a decent amount!) into the brush and that was one of my issues. Once I took a flashlight and looked into the barrel, I saw the tiniest opening for the powder to flow through. I think they need to re-engineer this product with a larger delivery hole. The other issue was the knob used to deliver the powder to the brush. It was loose and didn't end at the places indicated on the barrel. It seemed looser than the product I played with in a store.
The brush itself is very nice as is the concept. The barrel delivery system just needs to be re-engineered.
