Got this eye kabuki while i was out looking for a large brush for an all over face powder. Unfortunately (or fortuntaely) i got distracted and ended up buying this brush! And good thing i did! I have a few brushes in my stash and so far, I have found that I use this eye kabuki brush for my eye makeup every day since I got it.
The brush is sturdy, the hair is dense and large enough for me to use for brushing pigment all over my eye, browbone, highlights and when required even on the lids!
Will definitely recommend this in every girl's kit!
After waiting forever for this brush to get back in stock, I finally managed to grab one. Like many others I also bought this for concealer application, and I agree that for that purpose the eye kabuki is fantastic. This brush works so well for (mineral) concealer application that I wear less foundation than I used to. The brush head is indeed like a mini kabuki, but unless you have a quite large lid space (I don't) it'll be way too big for anything eye-related except maybe a light sweep of shadow. I have long fingers so I wish the handle was maybe an inch or two longer, but I know I'm in the minority in that. The bristles clean easily and dry pretty quickly.
I did have to take a lippy off though because when I first took it out of the package it smelled VERY strongly of plastic, like it just came fresh from a factory. After a few washings the smell is thankfully gone from the bristles themselves, but the handle is still pretty smelly. Even so I'll probably still pick up another, unless a different company releases something similar.
I love this brush, but I don't use it for eyeshadow. I find it blends concealer very well, providing coverage while looking natural. It's also a nice size for adding sweeps of highlight.
For eyes, I feel the brush is too large and not precise enough. It's definitely personal preference, though.
I have had this brush for over a year and it still cleans up great with no shedding.
Great for an overall sweep of colour over the lids. The bristles are very soft and dense, dome shaped. I love using this because i am not a massive eyeshadow wearer, i usually apply a single color over my cease with maybe darker colour on the outer corners.
I really like this product! I use eye shadow shades that are one color washes and this is a great tool to have because it applies the colors evenly, buffs them in gently, and doesn't shed particles everywhere. Must have for one color washes.
I haven't tried this on my eyes for all over color but it seems like it would work well. I have, however, tried it as a concealer brush for my under eye area and by my nose and it works fabulously and doesn't leave a cakey look. Like it way better than a regular concealer brush
Agree with the rest of the reviews. Favourite brush to apply concealer...must get one for eyshadows asell. Great price and does'nt shed.
Too dense and takes ages to dry. Prefer using my Real Techniques Setting Brush
It took me a whole two years to find a use for it. For no make-up make-up days I love using it to apply foundation and buffing it into my skin onto areas that I need coverage. It would take forever to do the whole face of course so I just use it to conceal redness on my cheeks and slight discoloration and blemishes.
I definitely don't use this for any eye product application due to it's size...but that doesn't mean that it does not have it's place in my world. There is NOTHING better to blend your crease shadows up than this brush...especially for dark, difficult to blend shadows. It is also wonderful for blending concealers and powders around the eyes. It is wonderfully dense and super duper soft.
First and foremost this is a unique brush, I haven't seen one like it online or in stores. It really is a kabuki, but a micro version of it! Totally soft and VERY dense, great for buffing in concealer (both liquid and loose powder).
