Review of Everyday Minerals Premium Powder Brush by kak513
Here's what's on the website:
"Your new Everyday Minerals Premium Brush is a rounded powder foundation brush. But don't stop there! It is the ultimate multi-purpose brush great for blush, face color, finishing powder, and whatever other application you can imagine.
Made from 100% cruelty free sable, this is one of the softest natural hair brushes you will ever have the pleasure of owning. Perfect for Sensitive Skin."
I was looking for a brush specifically to apply my Finishing Dust, and that alone. I was using my blush brush from BE, but I hated how I couldn't get all the pink powder off each time, and would "pink" myself all over while brushing on the Finishing Dust. This seems to be decent quality, but I'm alarmed over how much it's shedding. I've had it less than a week though, so we'll see how it goes. It is incredibly soft--easily the softest brush I've owned, and applies powder really well. The handle is a little on the big side, which doesn't bother me, but people who want to travel with it might want to search further. If the shedding ends soon, I'll bump up the lippies, but I'm tired of finding these hairs ALL over my face.
EDIT: 2/27/07. This brush is still MADLY shedding, and the handle even broke last night--the metal part came of off the wooden end. I glued it together, but it certainly doesn't smack of quality. I should probably send it back for a new one. No exaggeration, I find no less than 5 of these hairs on the front of my shirt after applying powder every morning, and untold numbers on my face. Not full length hairs, however, short pieces of hairs like they're all shattering. I baby my brushes like no other, so I'm not sure why this is happening. Gentle washing, and then stored upright in a jar which is then kept in a larger covered plastic bin. (Not covered when wet, though.) Are other people have this insane shedding problem? Lippies from 4 to 2, and no on repurchase.
