I bought this item for the moisturizing quality. I buy all Bare Minerals products and bought this for the first time for the winter months. It flies all over the place when trying to swirl onto the flawless face brush. It takes a large amount to do the job, because I have to continually swirl more onto the brush. I did ask at the store if I needed a special brush and was told I did not. From this website, I see that this may be the case. I will be taking this back and going back to the regular mineral veil.
