I find this brush to be very hard and scratchy on my face. I never reach for it if I have any other brush at all that I can use instead. I also found that it shed quite a bit more than other equivalently priced brushes, particularly when washed.

This is horrid! It does not blend well, the hairs fall out, it loses the shape after awhile of use, and is too small. It also irritates my face, which is not easily irritable... I have nothing good to say about this brush! If you want a nicer kabuki I would definetly try another line, as this one plain out sucks!

My Kabuki is from the BE beginner's kit or whatnot.It's hairs are not as soft as your average high-end brand brush.Of course I only used this with BE before... but..I found a use for this in my daily routine.My skin is sensitive, and I don't find that this brush does anything funny to my skin. I use it after I've done ALL my face makeup, and I whisk this around and buff everything to "blend" everything into my skin.It's like a Fix+ in a brush form.So I'm glad that I kept this around.There may be better bukis out there, but I don't find it a necessary brush and I probably wouldn't buy another one, if ever.

This was the first non-drugstore brand makeup brush I had...so I didn't have much to compare it to. I got it with the starter kit...and so far, I'm not really a fan of BE. The brush does a good job getting the mineral foundation on my face, the coverage is great and the brush blends everything out. The brush works fine, but it's so NOT soft. I'm pretty much scratching my face to get the makeup on. And after washing it a few times, it's definitely shedding and the bristles have dried out a bit (I do use brush shampoo and not just regular soap). I'm thinking of trying out the retractable Ecotools, so we'll see. I'm still using it right now bc it's the only kabuki I've got, but for the money, I would not buy it.

Like practically everyone stated....OW!!! I bought this several years ago in a transition period when my skin was good and was not sensitive. Now that I have breakouts again and am prone to redness... YIKES!!! It is so prickly. I like how it applies BE bronzer and it's very dense. However, this was my first kabuki and I am realizing there are way better options out there. STAY AWAY!!! It's pricey and you can buy way better ones at CVS, Target, etc. I am very much enjoying my EcoTools Kabuki and have ordered the E.L.F Studio Kabuki to replace this BE POS. Can't believe I've kept it for so long. It's going up on my swap list (if I can even find someone who wants it!)

I just pulled this brush out again yesterday and all I can say is ouch. My skin hurts because the bristles are so rough. The brush gives nice even coverage so that's why I'm still giving it 3 lippies, but I can't get over how irritating the bristles are on my skin. Bummer. I'll have to get a new kabuki now :/

A friend gave me her extra BE Kabuki, so I figured I'd give it a try.PROS: Dense bristles.CONS: Natural hair bristles are a bit scratchy. Some shedding. Expensive.If you're going to spend $28 on a kabuki, get the Too Faced Retractable Kabuki instead. It's super soft, doesn't shed, and retracts!

I asked my mom to buy this brush for me from Sephora. She got it shipped to Canada and the whole thing ended up costing her $60 CAD. (Shipping was a rip-off). Which makes it all the more disappointing. It's small, hard to hold, and scratchy. I used it a lot anyway, and it did the job, but I kinda felt like I had to, after all the trouble my mom went through to get it. I don't use mineral foundation anymore, but if I did, I would use the flat top buffer from Coastal Scents - it's awesome.

This kabuki came w/ my BE kit and I thought what a great deal b/c usually kabuki's are pretty expensive and also it wasn't the baby ones. However the first couple of uses i thought the brush was good and then it started to become scratchy. So then i decided to wash it again and then try it again. Washing it does help but it was still scratchy on my face. It actually gave me a rash at one point b/c i guess i was buffing too hard and also i have really sensitive skin as well. I did find another way to use this brush which is to use it as a duster so whenever i do my eye makeup any fall outs i will just pick this brush up and sweep it off my face. otherwise i would not buy this brush again.
