This brush is average for me. When I wear mineral makeup, I usually try to go for medium coverage. Unfortunately this brush didn't fit the bill. It wasn't dense enough and the bristles were too long for that purpose for me. But all is not lost. I use this brush to apply a oil-blocking powder and for that it works perfectly. It applies a light layer of the said powder and doesn't make me look ashy or cakey. Cleaning it is a breeze but it does take some time for it to dry. I am undecided if I want to repurchase this brush. For me, the best brush for applying mineral makeup is the The Body Shop Kabuki brush for the face. The density is perfect and it evenly distributes the foundation perfectly. Plus the bristles are very soft and easy to clean and cruelty-free, for those who are interested.
ELF changed their Kabukis, and while they used to make the most luxuriously soft, dense kabuki brushes, they have been replaced with loosely-packed and flimsy ones. The metal bottom piece used to have some weight on it, but the newer one feels almost plastic like. I adored my ELF kabuki so much that I bought a newer one (original was bought about a year and a half ago, new one a few months ago) and am thoroughly disappointed. So sad that they're making cheaper products...but it makes sense if they're in high demand. There's no way they could have kept up production on the old Kabukis - they were softer and more easy to use/made better than MAC or other HE kabukis I've tried!
So soft! It's a great brush for powder, and even for blush and bronzer.
One of the best results I've had for blush, although i've never used a kabuki brush before. It is so soft! and is so hard to muck up with it!! Defiantly recommend this!
I LOVE this brush! It applies powder and blends so well, and is amazingly soft! Chic looking as well. I recommend it :D
this kabuki brush is amaaaazing!! it's so soft ,so fluffy. i use it with my e.l.f 's high definition powder and it works so well. i have washed it quite a lot and it still remain the softness . Definitely a must-have make up brush!!
This brush is incredibly soft and dense which makes it ideal for fuller coverage. I like using it with powder to set my foundation. It's also good for buffing away blush if I've accidently applied too much. Hasn't shed yet either and I've washed it several times.
Brilliant make up brush at such a cheap price! The quality of the brush is excellent and it is great for applying powder and bronzer to face and body. I have bought kabuki brushes from other, more expensive brands and none compare tho this one from ELF. Also washes really well, I have washed this brush several times and found that it drys quickly and really holds its shape, I can't see me needing to buy a new one for a while but wouldn't go anywhere else for a kabuki brush in future!
I got this really cheap off Ebay brand new and I love it! I have been using it for about 3 days now and it's so soft on my face. I have washed it once before I used it and it still remains soft and lovely! I tried this with bourjois mineral matte mousse foundation, doesn't pick up the product that well though. However, this is definitely great for loose powder, blushers and bronzers as it picks up the product well and gives a great soft coverage. Worth every cent!
Wonderful Kabuki brush, so soft and far superior quality to a lot more expensive brushes. When the brush is washed, it doesn't lose it's shape or quality. The price is unbelieveably cheap for such an amazing tool.
