A hand-tied goat hair brush for Amazing Base® or PurePressed® Base, PurePressed® Blush, bronzer and shimmer powders.
Love using this brush with the mineral foundation. It dispenses the perfect amount and does not let much go to waste. Makes application super easy. Highly recommend.
I own 6 different JI brushes. The Handi was a pretty nice brush ---though I've had to pick a few bristles off of my face with every use. I've washed it periodically with warm water and Dr. Bonners soap, drying it with bristles down, hanging it by its handle. What I tried to protect it from is an issue nonetheless: the bristles are now coming out in clumps. Not what I expected from a $45 brush.
After having laser surgery and receiving the recommendation to use mineral makeup (doctor suggested Bare Minerals), I decided to go for Jane Iredale, as it seemed like a better, more natural product. I bought the concealer, the loose mineral foundation AND the pressed powder and compact along with the Handi brush. The handibrush is a nightmare every time I use it, because the brush hairs fall out with each use and I'm picking away little black hair bristles on my skin to retrieve these. Now I'm stuck with a terrible brush that makes me so frustrated each time I use it. Why do you sell such inferior brushes like this when you supposedly have nice products? It doesn't make any sense to scrimp in this area.
I really liked the brush at first - it's a nice shape for the pressed powder application. Pretty soon after I had it, it started shedding hairs, then the whole brush fell away from the handle. I re-glued it, and it was working okay for a couple months. Yesterday, the center of the brush came away from the rest and it's unusable. I am wondering if newer versions are more durable?
My bru didn't even last for a 1 year and I have MAC brushes that are at least 5 years old! Very disappointed, the entire brush head came off when I was shaking it off to dry :(
the quality of this brush has change its shed so much that you cannot used. a big loss of money.
I had this brush for awhile and stopped using it because it was rough and scratchy feeling on my face. It also shed a lot. I mean all over my counter and face with every use. I finally wrote to JI customer service and although the response time was slow, initially, they did eventually send me the replacement brush. So far, I haven't had the same issues and the brush is really really soft. So soft, that I can't press down too hard or I'm afraid ill mess up the soft plush hairs. It's a very mice powder brush and it would do really well for those who want a light to medium coverage. I would probably use a more dense brush for heavier coverage.
Ironically, I had just written a glowing 5 star review for the entire brush set today when I went in to put on my mineral makeup and found a clump of bristles had come out of my Handi brush. I have purchased almost all of the Jane Iredale brushes and this is the first one to become defective (except for the gloss brush in the "Fixation" lip gloss tube). I did not expect this to happen.
Using this brush for applying the pressed base makes a visible difference. I was hesitant at first because of the size and used other high end expensive brushes and once I gave the handy brush a try I got rid of the other application brushes I had. I wash it with the JI shampoo and find that it does shed a little bit,..not a lot,..but a little bit. Still love it and can't imagine using anything else besides this brush and the JI sponge to apply the pressed base.
Love this Brush with my Pure Pressed Powder. I also puchased the Kabuki Brush and felt this one worked best with my Pressed Powder. That's the only downfall with purchsing make-up and make-up accessories from a Beauty Store is there is a No-Refund and No-Exchange Return Policy which I feel is a poor customer service policy being that this make-up line is quite pricey...but worth every penny!
I received this brush as gift several years ago to use with a Jane Iredale pressed power. I used it exclusively with the power and the bristles became deformed (sort of flattened out in the middle) and the brush lost its shape very quickly! I take good care of all my makeup, and I was disappointed because its a very nice brush, I just wish it would've been able to stay in my collection longer!
great tool to apply mineral make up. This is fantastic! It blends the minerals very well and really holds the powder so I do not have to use much. A but pricey but so worth it! I have it with baby shampoo and it has held up well. Good size for travel as well.
I really love the brush and how it applies my Pure Pressed Powder. However, with the proper care and cleaning....never immersing in water, the handle has fallen off. It lasted only 9 months. The price is not justified by the lack of longevity. I would have expected years out of it.
I've owned this brush for YEARS and it still looks great and (even better) works with my PurePressed foundation powder the same as when I first purchased it! I clean it regularly with pure castile soap and warm water. Worth every penny.
This is a very nice brush that is reasonably priced. It feels well balanced in the hand, it is compact but not too small, and it easily applies mineral foundation. I have owned mine for about a year now and wash it once a week with California Baby Ultra Sensitive Shampoo. It retains its shape well and does not shed hair. I love it!
