Rated 1 out of 5 by Simone Not the brush it used to be..
This is my third kabuki brush. They used to be long lasting, if a little too spiky by the end of it's useful life. My new replacement brush is still shedding horribly two months in, and is already feeling spiky on my skin. I truly can't deal with it anymore, and for the price it is more than disappointing. BE occasionally has quality issues, unfortunately this is one of them.

I like the full coverage it provides but don't like how rough it feels on the face. I finally had to toss it when it started to shed. Really disappointed.

Just received and haven't used yet but this brush is so small. Length is about the size of my thumb!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BreezeAAA Great brush!
I love this brush for full coverage. I was hesitant because it has such a small handle but it is actually easier to use that way and doesn't take up much space. I love how this applies the foundation. I have washed it with shampoo and let it dry as recommended 3 times and have not had any issues with shedding or it not getting its shape back afterwards. It is a great little brush and applies my foundation just right. Watch the videos if you're new to Bare Minerals as the way you apply may not be what you're used to doing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bareMineralsMaven Excellent long lasting brush
I originally bought my Full coverage Kabuki Brush 10 (yes, TEN!) years ago!!! It is in perfect condition thanks to the Well Cared For Shampoo. It is my favorite brush by far and you should buy this one!

I've had this brush for 2 years, it provides great coverage of my BE make-up. I am waiting for my new Ready make up to come in the mail and will be trying a new brush. I'm already missing it! I have never had any issues with shedding.
Rated 2 out of 5 by StefyH22 Sheds horribly!!
The coverage this brush provides is great. I have acne prone skin and I like the way this brush covers everything. The problem, however, and the reason why I gave it 2 stars, is that I had to spend more time trying to pick off the hairs that have shed off and onto my face, than I actually do applying my foundation. I realize brushes will begin to shed over time, but this one actually shed like crazy from the first use, which is not a problem I'd ever had with other BE brushes. For that reason alone, I feel like this was a waste of my money and wouldn't recommend this brush.
Rated 2 out of 5 by NJ-NY Don't like it
It sheds. Feels like it's made of needles, not goat's hair, on my skin. I don't look forward to using it on my face at all. Not painful but not enjoyable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by way2BE Little Brush with TONS of potential
I love this brush and have used it every day for the last 5 years (at least) and until now, it has not shed at all. I use it to apply my foundation and it works perfectly by adding just enough coverage. It's also a great blending brush if you find you go a little too heavy on the blush or bronzer. Also, unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually appreciate that this brush is compact, it means it can travel just about anywhere and not take up a load of space. Sadly, after 5 years of using it...the bristles have begun to come loose from the bottom. I am not walking but RUNNING to my nearest Bare Minerals store to replace this little guy and retire the old one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnna T. This is one of my many favorite BE brushes. I always go to this one for applying my foundation. I really like that it doesn't have a handle. It makes it so much easier to buff my face to the way that I want the makeup to be.
