Today I’ll be reviewing the Bare Escentuals Heavenly Blush Brush.
This is a flat top brush and is again pretty versatile in its use.

My experience with the Bare Escentuals Heavenly Face Brush:
- I have been using this brush since approx six months and I have no complaints. I have tried to review the brush as per by understanding of what’s important in a brush. Please feel free to add any points.
- Packaging: This brush comes in a plastic wrapping, no box. The brush does not come with a bristle-guard. This brush is a limited edition one with an orange colored handle. Bare Escentuals does have a similar brush in their permanent line having a black handle. The handle, while it looks heavy, is lightweight and is made from plastic and some silver metal.
- Bristle Texture: The bristles totally live up to their claim of being ultra soft. They are not the least bit scratchy or prickly
- Bristle Size: The bristles are very short (a li’l more than 1inch in height) and as visible from the pictures, this is a flat top brush.
Bristle Quality (Color, Bleeding & Shedding): The bristles are a dark brown color and are closely packed together. There was absolutely no bleeding when I washed this and it has never given me extensive problems with shedding either.
Washing & Drying of Bare Escentuals Brush
I wash this brush quite often since I use it for applying foundation. The bristles, being dense, do require a bit of extra effort to clean, but it doesn’t take too long to clean. I usually keep it right under the fan and it dries in approx 4hrs.
The handle is short and chubby one and very easy to use. I love these kind of handles since it allows me a lot of control during application.
This brush although publicized as a blush brush can be used for applying foundation, blush or bronzer. I majorly use it for foundation and bronzer.
I find this brush great for layering and is good for make-up newbies or for those who are unsure of how much product is enough. I used to have this issue while applying bronzer. I always ended up with too much or too little. But using this brush gives me the freedom to brush and scrutinize, brush and scrutinize until I’m satisfied.
I have used this with tinted powders as well and they work really well. I’ve read a lot of reviews also where people have appreciated this brush with respect to usage of mineral powders. So one can try that as well.
While using this with foundation, I just pump out some foundation on my hand and then dip this brush and dot the various areas on my face. Then I buff it out using this brush and blend until I’m satisfied with the overall look. Another way to do this would be to blend in the foundation with your fingers first. And then use this brush to even it out.
With bronzers, I just swirl the brush in the pan and apply lightly while making my oh-so-laughed-at fish face I blend and layer on more if required and I’m done ! But one has to be careful while using this brush for bronzers since its very easy to go wrong with this.
