Full Coverage Kabuki Brush
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!
I love this brush, the coverage is amazing and it is very soft. It doesn't itch and feels like fluffy clouds. Yes, it does shed a little bit but I've never had brushes not shed so to me it isn't a deal breaker. If it fell apart completely, then yes, deal breaker. But this isn't the case! I really love this brush and if you need a large face brush, this is for you. I use it for my foundation and mineral veil daily.
I like it
This is a pretty good brush. I love how big and fluffy it is. Unlike some of the other BE clients, I like that it doesn't have the long handle. It it easy to hold and travels well. It does provide good coverage. I will never give up this brush! I've had it for years, and it still seems brand new. I've not had any shedding problems, as someone else mentioned. I recommend this brush to anyone who doesn't have perfect skin and wants a quick foundation application.
I am very disappointed in this brush. This brush started shedding from the first use. After applying BE to my face, I then have spend time plucking the brush hairs from my skin. If I could give it no stars, I would.
