Full Coverage Kabuki 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
BE makes the best brushes! This brushes is soft and fluffy and large. I can cover my whole face very quickly with little to no effort love it:)
Love the Kabuki brush!
With this face-friendly super-soft brush it is easy to swirl, tap and buff your way to perfection. The bristles pick up a lot of foundation so it is easy to get moderate to full coverage. It is also great for dusting on mineral veil. I keep a couple of these brushes so when I wash one, I've still got another one to use while the first one dries. Great for people like me who don't have perfect complexions and like extra coverage. I have had these brushes for years and they are holding up great. A little Well-Cared For brush shampoo and they are good to go. The short handle is ideal for me and makes it easy to buff. If you like a long-handled brush better, the FULL flawless face brush will give you a similar result. The Kabuki brush is a top 10 product for me. If I could only have 10 items in my makeup bag, this would be one of them.
Love this Brush
I'm fairly new to Bare Minerals, but I'm not new to using make-up brushes. I've never owned a make-up brush I like as much as this one. I love that it doesn't have a long handle. The bristles are so soft. My skin is fairly sensitive and this brush doesn't feel scratchy like others I've had in the past. The other thing I really like is that it doesn't lose bristles. The size is also great. It fits the whole lid of the Bare Minerals and picks up all the foundation in a few swipes. It has cut down the amount of time I spend on my make-up. I love it!
