    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I would not recommend this brush to anyone. The fabrication and materials used are quite cheap. I will be returning. Very disappointed by bareMinerals in this case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little to-go brush I have a little bag that I keep in my purse for touch ups throughout the day, and this is a fantastic little addition. I'll admit I use it for everything - foundation, warmer, blush, and mineral veil. This & a small concealer brush is all I need. So convenient! And it's super soft, which is a plus...and being retractable I don't have to worry about this one getting smushed in my purse like I worry about my concealer brush. And just for the record, no, I don't love it more than my full size brushes but for being a brush on the go, this is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for purse! I love this little retractable brush. I know it was made for mineral veil, but I use it for foundation coverage too. It is soft and easy to clean, plus so very perfect for my makeup bag. You can not go wrong with this little wonder!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft brush, love that it's capped! This is my favorite BE brush. I use it for my foundation, and it ensures that the power goes on smoothly and covers all my imperfections. The bristles are soft, and they're super easy to clean. I love the cap. I can slip it in my makeup bag without having to worry about the bristles getting damaged or broken off. Every girl needs one of these for travel at least...I have 2!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not just for Mineral Veil... I got this in a kit for Mineral Veil, but put it away because I had other brushes. I found it again when I was looking for a brush to put in my after-gym makeup bag. I have been using this for the Ready foundation, and it is perfect! it is soft and densely bristled, and picks up the foundation like a magnet. Definitely a keeper!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for on the go! I love the design of this brush! It is great for on the go, it is antibacterial and doesn't get smushed in my makeup bag! My only complaint is that sometimes you have to play with the tube a little when you pull it up to put it away to prevent the cap from bending the bristles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Brush I have tried just about every foundation brush out there and never found one that I love till now. It covers flawlessly and, the best part, it doesn't leave those little brush hairs everywhere!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft as always and portable too...Love it! I bought this today at my local store that carries BE products. I took pictures too so others can see how portable it really is. I'm not sure why this product has an overall score of 3/5. I have dual purposes for this brush. I used my mineral veil with this, just to see what it would do and it doesn't do an overkill on my face at all and I have a Golden Dark skin tone. Secondly, I can foresee myself using this with either my matte or original foundation. I DO have a soft focus face brush that I would use for my mineral veil, a flawless application brush for my Warmth All Over Face Color and for foundation I can use this tool. It's really soft, portable and for me, it was worth getting. Little Tip/Advice: Make sure you retract the neck of the brush ALL THE WAY DOWN. This way you get the FULL bristles all the way out of the brush so that you can get the full effect and use of this brush. The neck of the brush is the part that the brush comes OUT of when you protract (push up) the bristles which happens when you retract (pull down) the neck of the brush.

  • What is the best way to clean this kind of brush? Is it even washable?

    I have a several BE brushes that have the regular long handle, which I clean with the brush shampoo with no problem. This brush seems a little more tricky with the retractable handle though. Is there a special washing method? I need to clean it, but I am afraid I will ruin the brush.
    Asked by: Rosey106
    Same way - put a little shampoo in your palm & rub the wet brush in a circle in your palm. Rinse in warm water & repeat if the water doesn't rinse clear. The key is to always keep the bristles pointed downward so the water doesn't get up into the handle (on all brushes). Squeeze out the water & lay the brush flat on a towel or paper towel to dry. Easy-peasy!

    If this is supposed to be used for Mineral Veil, do you add it to the brush someewhere? I bought this & can't figure it out. It's a waste of money.

    I can't figure out how/if Mineral Veil is added to the brush or if it holds Mineral Veil somewhere. It's a waste of my money as far as I can tell.
    Asked by: Gaye
    It does neither. You would shake the mineral veil into the cap and swirl and tap the brush like you would any other brush. The brush is also amazing with the Ready Mineral Veil or foundation.

    How on earth do you make this brush retract? Just got it along with the Mineral Veil and nothing retracts.

    This is just a brush with lid. Looks like the picture on the website, says "Buff & Go" on it, but it won't twist or anything in order to get it to retract. Help!
    Asked by: Val1bgfan
    You pull up the barrel of the brush from the base when you are done and replace the cap. It doesn't twist.

    Is this brush best used on loose or solid mineral veil powder?

    Is this brush best for loose or for solid mineral veil powder?
    Asked by: camha
    I have been using this with the Ready foundation, and it works like a dream! I am sure it would work very well with the Ready Mineral Veil as well.

    What is the height with cap and diameter of the Buff & Go Brush?

    I am interested to know if this will fit conveniently in a make-up bag in my purse.
    Asked by: tmsgamble
    Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what it looks like. It's portable, the bristles are soft and for me, it works great. I would use this Buff & Go brush with foundation, the Soft Focus Face Brush for the mineral veil and the Flawless Face Application for the Warmth All Over Face Color.

    What is the Buff and Go Brush bristles made of?

    What is the Buff and Go Brush made of?
    Asked by: cfallsrn
    Usually the BE brushes are made of Goat Hair. Some other BE brushes use Ox hair, Pony hair (both super soft; example: heavenly blush brush which I have purchased and fell completely in love with) and also Taklon.
