Bare Minerals Refillable Buffing Brush

Beauty Essentials: Bare Minerals Refillable Buffing Brush

This nifty little product is an absolute essential in my everyday make-up bag. If you wear mineral foundation or like to touch up your face powder during the day, then this product will be your best friend.

I wear mineral foundation and the application of reapplying throughout the day is just too messy and inconvenient. I received the bareMinerals Refillable Buffing Brush as a birthday present a few years ago and it hasn’t left my make-up bag since!

I actually lost it on a night out once and had to literally repurchase it as soon as I could, as it’s something I use on a daily basis and was lost without it.

I must admit, it wasn’t a product that entered my head my head beforehand as something I needed to buy, so when I received this as a gift, I was surprised to find that it became such an everyday product for me to use.

It’s a handy little device that you fill up with your powder, mineral foundation or even a loose powder blush and carry it around with you for emergency/convenient touch ups. You unscrew the bottom capsule (clear compartment pictured above), pour in your product with the spatula (supplied with the brush) and then you’re good to go.

It has an open, close and buff option and you simply twist the bottom to open when you want to release some powder onto the brush – tap it upside down and you will see the powder reach the bristles.

That means it’s ready to use, so you twist again to buff and move the brush in circular motions as the powder dispenses evenly through the bristles. You can buff in your foundation, blush or lightly buff over the skin if you want to just touch up your powder on a shiny nose or forehead.

As you twist the bottom, the brush pops up then you twist it back into the close position and it ‘locks’ it in place – resulting in no spillage or powder getting loose in your make-up bag. The bristles in the brush are soft and rounded for effortless buffing – I love all bareMinerals brushes as they are amazing quality and this is no exception.

I love the bareMinerals Refillable Buffing Brush – It’s such a handy product and I use it everyday to touch up my foundation. I haven’t tried using it for mineral blush yet, but if I had another one I would definitely use it for that.

It’s quick and super easy to use and really convenient so you can get it out on the go without any mess – on the train or even just a quick touch up while you’re walking somewhere.

It’s also a life saver on a night out (providing you don’t lose it like me!) and really handy to just pop out of your bag and apply it there and then – so convenient.

It’s only £22 and I really recommend it if you use mineral make-up, as loose powder can be really tricky to reapply throughout the day – especially without the convenience of a mirror and your dressing table!

Have you ever tried using a refillable brush? What do you think of this one?

      It really is great for touching up foundation during the day! I use the BM loose foundation too and add a bit of the BM mineral veil in it too. It’s a staple in my makeup bag and amazing for emergency touch ups! x
