        This brush is wonderful for the under eye area. After applying my concealer, I dip this brush in a little powder and sweep it under my eyes and around my nose and t-zone area. The domed head of the brush is perfectly shaped for these areas of the face. It is super soft and has just the right amount of bristles to apply a soft wash of powder without leaving you with that heavy, over powdered look. It is also excellent for applying high-lighter to the cheekbones. This is one of those brushes that you don't think you need until you have it....then can't live without it!

        I thought other reviewers who said this brush sheds were just using it incorrectly or applying too much pressure. After using BB brushes for years, I can't recommend this brush as it sheds horribly every use. I purchased it online in April. I thought the shedding was temporary, but it was not. It continued every single use for months until I gave up. You should not have to pick thick brush hairs off your face every day—especially at this price. Sometimes when in a hurry, I would miss one or two of the thick hairs. How embarrassing! Don't waste your money.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I use this brush to apply a finishing powder over my liquid foundation, applied with the foundation brush. It provides a light, sheer layer. It used to shed after I washed it. I happened to read in a makeup book (not by BB) that makeup brushes should be cleaned with brush cleaner, or washed with shampoo, followed by conditioner, that should be washed out, not left in. I was using dish washing liquid, so I switched to shampoo and conditioner. Once I did this -- with the 5 BB brushes that I own, the shedding stopped.

        Love Bobbi's brushes

        By 

        from Charlotte, NC

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I've had this brush since the brand launched it. I absolutely love it. So I decided to buy another one. I've been reading the reviews and a lot of people are having problems with shedding, I've never had issues with over shedding. I expect it to do so every so often. The brush preforms as expected. It's soft and deposits the right amount of product. I use it for blush, highlight, bronzer...can't get enough!! I've had my current Bobbi brushes for over 10 years and I've only had to replace my blush brush once. The glue had finally started to separate. No complaints!! Xoxo

        Great for sheer powder applications

        By 

        from Rochester, NY

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I've had this brush for about 6 months now, and feel I can give it a proper review. The brush provides a sheer application of powder, which is exactly what I wanted. More of a natural finish instead of a matte finish. (Too much powder settles into my fine lines.) I was very hesitant to purchase, given the mixed reviews, but am glad I did. When I received it, one hair shed, but that was it. Nothing elaborate as other reviewers have experienced.

        I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because after I washed it, it fluffed up. Not sure if I need to use a conditioner with it, I hope a rep will respond.

        Sheds like crazy - every day, never stops.

        By 

        from New Jersey

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I should have listened to the other reviews. This brush sheds little hairs like crazy every day. I have had it for a few months now - I thought eventually it would stop. It hasn't. Every day I find 2-3 thin hairs on my face after i use this - very frustrating to pick off my face as they stick to the makeup I just applied. This is not worth what you pay for it. At all. Other BB brushes are great - but this one misses the mark completely.

        Poor Quality

        By 

        from Montreal, QC, Canada

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I bought this brush over a year ago and even though I care and use it as recommended by an in store Bobbi Brown consultant, it sheds profusely. It leaves behind quite a mess in my bathroom sink and on my face. I am very disappointed as it is not inexpensive and I had excepted far more from a B.B. product.

        Worse brush ever

        By 

        from Toronto, ON, Canada

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        First time I bought it, i thought maybe it was a bad badge, it shed like crazy, I wash it with Bobbi brush gel and even though was awfull, so I throw it away, but then I keep seeing all Bobbi make up artist in YouTube or instagram used it, so I give it a tried again and bought another one and the same thing it shed, the bristles are so weird texture, WORSE brush I ever bought (twice), and I have all the Bobbi's brown brushes, I don't know what happen. I used to trust so much this brand

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I bought this powder brush and was very disappointed to find that the bristles fall out. I thought this might just be an initial problem but it has continued and I have ended up having to throw it out as I just ended up with my face covered in nasty black hairs (from the brush). Not the sort of look I was after!

        Soft & Amazing

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I wash my brushes every week, as a few customers have pointed out the versatility of the bristles, I have no issues with them. They don't shed even after washing, granted I have had this particular brush for a month. I have the whole set of brushes from Bobbi, from brows to lips. The one thing I love about this brush is the amount of product it picks up which is GREAT! I know how much I need or don't need.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I own several BB brushes; the face blender.. **love**, the bronzer.. **love**, the concealer, and the dual end combo brow brush. I have purchased one of each EXCEPT this one, the Sheer Powder, of which I've had to purchase 2.

        I bought one, had it for about a week and returned it due to the consistant shedding. When the second one started shedding as well, I thought it might be something it's suposed to do for a brief period, but the other brushes (blender, bronzer, etc..) weren't shedding. Now, after about 6months, (and proper washing and care with Bobbie's Brush Shampoo), it...just the Powder Brush, now looks like someone has been plucking it from the top !! The other brushes still look great. These are good brushes, but there's obviously some sort of defect with this one brush.

        Please correct this problem. Until then, I will keep the other brushes but will never purchase another powder brush from BB.

        So Sorry. :-(

        Still Shedding

        By 

        from Omaha, NE

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush:

        I have had this brush for close to a year now (maybe more?) and it is still shedding. I am a BB purist, the only makeup I trust to put on my skin, but am disappointed in this brush. Need a new one for my powder, any suggestions would be appreciated!
