$30.00

worth it...love it....While I agree that the shape of this brush is perfect for getting foundation into the indentations around the eyes and nose, I find the brush so firm that it is irritating to my skin when used with the recommended short, downward strokes, and using this brush makes my BarePro foundation look streaky....It provides good coverage, doesn't soak up too much foundation, and doesn't give a streaky finish like a lot of other brushes do.
What it is:
A liquid foundation brush designed specifically for use with BAREPRO® Performance Wear Liquid Foundation.

What it does:
The Luxe Performance Brush is the perfect partner for the creamy texture of BAREPRO Liquid Foundation. Its dense, tapered fibers mimic the shape of your fingertips to provide smooth, flawless coverage, while the compact head size allows for fast and easy blending around hard-to-reach areas like the nose and eyes. Made with hypoallergenic synthetic fibers, this brush gives an even, streak-free application. The best part of all—it keeps your fingers clean.

What else you need to know:
Due to the density of the brush fibers, it is recommend to clean the bristles after each use to avoid product buildup, and shampoo once a week to deep clean.
