My favourite buffing brush!
It blends blush bronzer highlighter effortlessly, without disturbing the base. Gives a natural finish. When i started using this my partner commented that my makeup skills were improving and that my makeup looked natural and blended and he never makes comments like that. Feels soft and velvety, best buffer brush for mature sensitive skin!Melanie S. Mar 02, 2022
I love this brush. It is very soft, but not flimsy. I have dry skin and some brushes lift of dry skin and make it more apparent, even though I regularly use exfoliants. This does not do it at all. I use it for setting and finishing powder. BTW I have not a single Sonia G. brush that disappointed me so far.1 found this helpful.Damon C. Feb 23, 2022
Worth picking up if you already have the Face One
Ok so here's my experience with the Buffer Pro. Initially I was going to wait on buying this brush, because I have the Face One. After seeing Sonia's pictures of them side by side. The Face One hairs looked longer and denser, so I became curious. Now I don't have the original Face One. I have the Face One that was released under the different manufacturer. As indicated by the star above the Japan. I find that the new Buffer Pro sits between my Face One and my Smooth Buffer in hair length. So the thing that initially made me curious was in fact true. My Face One is denser and the hairs are longer. I also noticed my Face One and Smooth Buffer has flat tops. While my Buffer Pro has a domed top which I prefer. I've been using all three of my brushes for almost 2 weeks now and to my surprise. I find that the Buffer Pro feels more like a airy yet dense version of the Smooth Buffer. It doesn't remind me at all of my Face One. My Face One covers a lot of real estate on my face. So I use it for setting the face, packing on powder and bronzing. While the Smooth Buffer has a lighter touch. I use it for getting in to smaller areas like blush, contour, setting the center of my face and buffing out small mistakes. The Buffer Pro I've enjoyed for just buffing my whole face. If I wanted to use it for other things. I know it can do everything the Face One and Smooth Buffer does for me because of it's size. I have a thing for round domed brushes. So for me I prefer the Buffer Pro over my Face One. So as y'all can see I get a lot of use out of these types of brushes, but at the end of the day. All three brushes do the same thing at varying degrees. If I had to rank my three brushes. In first place would be the Buffer Pro then the Smooth Buffer and finally the Face One. It's the dome of the Buffer Pro that sets it apart from the other brushes for me. Thanks for reading.8 found this helpful.Erika G. Dec 16, 2021
Very soft but is shedding a lot, very disappointed
I dont know how to stop my brush from shedding, I used 3 times this brush and I dont like the bristles all over my face. For the price I was expecting the same quality as my other sonia G brushes. I am really disappointed.10 found this helpful.Alicia S. Nov 03, 2021

Sonia G - Amazing Brushes
I am never disappointed with Sonia G Brushes. I have heard for years about this brush, and I was recently fortunate to purchase one. It blends finishing powders in a way that is almost magical. She is truly gifted when she designs a brush. If you ever get a chance to buy one of her brushes. Do it. You will never regret the decision.2 found this helpful.Reshma N. Oct 30, 2021
Lot of fall out, terrible customer service
I purchased this brush recently after the handle had changed. I have to warn, the fall out is more than usual, hairs won't stop coming out, that too all whole of them, with little glue still attached at the bottom. The customer service is terrible, they keep pushing back saying it normal. NO it's not. I have used Fude brushes for years, and never faced these sort of issues. I own a surratt face brush which is denser and packed than this. Never in my life supporting this brand or beautylish anymore ! The whole experience has left a bad taste in my mouth. The customer service should be renamed to push back service as they just wont listen to the problem, and just disregard them all, thinking the customer is wrong. I am not a person who writes reviews and leaves bad comments, but this whole experience has been extremely disappointing and irritating.12 found this helpful.Melissa W. Oct 30, 2021
Soft Buffing Action
I have the Face Pro Set and I am glad to have this brush with the tapered handle joining the family! The brush buffs very quickly and the bristles are very soft. Sometimes I'd just run it over my face even though there is nothing to buff.2 found this helpful.c m. Sep 04, 2021
I love all brushes from Sonia G, but this has got to be my favourite. Extremely functional yet soft, it buffs powders in beautifully. The brush i didn't know i needed. I am so lucky i got one from one of the original first or second batches ages ago when first released, although i trust her quality is maintained with the new manufacturer that she had to find. An exquisite example of Japanese fude.3 found this helpful.
