Full Coverage Kabuki Brush
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.
My Second Favorite of the BE Face Brushes
First, I'd like to address the other two users who were wishing this brush had a handle. A consultant I once spoke with at a BE boutique told me the Full Flawless Application Brush is the same brush as the Full Coverage Kabuki...just with a handle. I was needing to replace my first FC Kabuki and was debating between it and the Full Flawless. The consultant pulled out the two and, ultimately, I stuck with this one. I've had issues in the past with the handles pulling away from the brush head and, while I could just glue it back together, this seemed to be the better decision.
I say this brush is my second favorite because the Heavenly Face Brush is actually my all-time favorite. That one, however, doesn't play well with the Matte Foundation so I have had to switch.
The bristles with this brush are SOOO soft and really hold the foundation product well. I especially like that the size of the brush head nearly picks up all the foundation in one swoop of the lid. I get full, broad, even coverage with this brush and couldn't ask for more!
I have also not had the shedding problems that have been reported previously. One or two fall out occasionally but it's definitely not something I consider to be a "problem." I take excellent care of my brushes (in part because I cannot afford to keep replacing them) and haven't had any major issues in using them.
Bristles fall out
I don't know if the brush I have is a fluke, or if they're all like this. Every time I use it, some of the bristles fall out. I end up having to pick them off my face or from the jar's lid. (I'm being gentle with the brush). My other BE brushes don't have this issue- thus the 3 star vs. 1 star rating. I love my other BE brushes.
Someone already wrote EXACTLY what I think...
but I like to underline it, hoping someone up in the BE headquarters takes it as a hint...
This brush is fantastic, super soft, no shedding at all (trust me, I've had this brush for 3 years now and if I say no shedding at all, I really mean it!)... BUT it'd be better if it had a long handle... let's say... a large version of the Handy Buki...
I really like the coverage I get when I use this brush on the larger areas of my face (cheeks, neck, forehead). It is very soft and comfortable to use, but I would like it even better if it had a longer handle, like the buki brush. That is the only reason I didn't give it 5 hearts. I use the buki brush around my eyes and nose because of its more compact size and easy to grip handle.
I love the full coverage brush! I've tried other brushes but this one covers the best for me.
