This is my go to brush that i use almost everyday. It's a bronzer brush, but i use it with blushers, powders and i even used it with mousse foundation and it wasn't half bad. I bought this brush more than 2 years ago and it's amazing how it kept its shape, and still looks & feels like i just bought it. The only downside is it's a bit pricey, and don't get me wrong i think it's totally worth its price, it's just knowing that the body shop makeup brushes are on sale like all the time, if i ever lost it i wouldn't buy it for the retail price. Just be patient and wait for the sale that will eventually come up. Other than that, awesome brush.

I bought this on sale. Buy 1 Take 1! I'm in love with it! It doesn't shed off and the brush is so soft. My sensitive, acne-prone skin loves it!

A nice soft FLUFFY KABUKI that's been part of the Body Shop permanent collection since 2007.

Their brushes feature two types of bristles. The Face & Body Brush, Blusher and eye brushes with thinner soft bristles. And the Mineral Kabuki and Slanted Kabuki with coarser and slightly curled hairs that are better at holding powders and blending.
This is just like the Face & Body Brush, but round and bigger. Would be great for applying any type of powder sheerly. Or just massaging your face. Possibly the softest synthetic brush there is.))

NOTE: Nobody should buy Body Shop brushes retail, unless you're really in a hurry. They often have a 50% discount on makeup, including brushes. If you're a bit more patient, 3 brushes for 30. These are really worth considering, especially the kabukis. Some of my favorite brushes are by ELF, but their kabuki in comparison is literally a waste of money.

NOTE: This works amazingly with the Hourglass Ambient Light powders. They have their own brush, but this is just as soft and bigger. I prefer the dark brown bristles. They make it easier to see how much powder there is and if it distributed uniformly.

I love The Body Shop, both the products and its responsible trade concept but not sure about the Kabuki brush I bought. I have a TBS retractable powder brush eyeshadow brushes and the former has been with me for 6 years so I sort of have an idea how great their brushes were but the kabuki one is a flop for me. Maybe I'm just not used to using kabuki brushes at all. The lack of handle made it hard to control how I swirl the brush on my face when dispersing products on my face. This makes my application a bit uneven and extra work is needed to work everything on the face. That being said, I thought the way the brush was constructed was fantastic.

I like this. Bought a second one after the first broke but managed to glue it back so now I have 2.

Not as dense as the TBS mineral kabuki brush but works well. Soft and doesn't hurt my sensitive eczema skin. Hasn't shed a hair and I've had them for years. I rotate 4 kabuki brushes so I can clean (bacteria!!) and use them regularly.

This brush is SO soft! I bought it many years ago and still in perfect condition. I won`t need back up:). Perfect for appliying powder and bronzer lightly and blending blush and contour colours together. I found it dense enough to apply liquid fndn too. For powder fndns Elf studio powder brush is better. Golden handle is pretty.

This is a great brush. I bought it together with the Honey Bronzer from The Body Shop. They had a promotion, so it was a bit cheaper. I guess the price is the only slightly negative thing about this brush. Otherwise it's great, very soft, very dense and absolutely no shedding whatsoever.
I use it for a lot of things, creme foundation, mineral powder foundation and bronzer/blush. The size is great because it means I can carry it around in my make-up bag. One time I accidentally pulled the zipper of the bag over the brush and the whole thing was a bit deformed for one day, but to my surprise after one day it turned back to the same shape as before. I would repurchase for sure!

I really lucked out when I got this last year. It was on clearance to begin with, and if you bought a bag, there was an additional 50% off. I think I paid about $5 total for the brush. It's a very soft brush with densely packed bristles, perhaps not as dense as the MAC Kabuki, but still impressive. I use it for my foundation (oily skinned girl here, can't do the liquid stuff lol) and mineral veil. It works wonders.
