This brush is super cute, but not terribly useful. The bristles are sparse and sort of coarse. It's fine for a dusting of loose powder or bronzer, but not a lot else. For the price I'd rather have the Ecotools Kabuki.

I love this brush! It is dense, so it is the perfect kabuki for either mineral foundation or powder, but I don't really wear mineral foundation, so I just use it for my setting powder. Minimal shedding, but it has lost a few hairs. I love the way the short handle feels in my hand, plus I adore the pink tipped bristles. So cute! Very soft, feels great against the skin. I bought it for about $10 on ebay because my Sephora was sold out. I definitely would reccomend this to anyone looking for a high quality 'buki.

I don't really use this brush, it's not as soft as I would like it to be so it doesn't go near my face. It's also kind of bulky,
It's a shame, but I bought this for mere aesthetic purposes.
I have a nice vanity with antique bottles and it just fit there perfectly.

I bought this because it looks and feels like a good quality brush, and not because I like pink... In fact, it is my least favorite color (sorry girls!!!). It doesn't shed at all, so I'm not sure why some users are finding that it does.. I recommend washing it with gentle soap or brush cleaner, and using lukewarm water to rinse and laying it down so the water doesn't get into the base of the bristles and loosens the glue - that is usually the reason brushes tend to shed.. It picks up just the right amount of pigment - I use it mostly for bronzer (so I can actually see how much is being picked up) but it works just as well with blush. It feels great and the finish is flawless.. I like it so much I even bought the larger kabuki brush from them!!!

Like tixifix, I bought it because it was the cheapest one in Sephora - and it's pretty. It's a nice hot pink (my favorite color!). But ugh, it sheds, sheds, sheds. I have to go back and pick the hairs off my face after applying the foundation.

I bought it because it was the cheapest kabuki brush I found at Sephora and it was cute. However, whenever I clean it, the hair seems to fall off. It's not as smooth as the more expensive brushes are and would not recommend this to people who have sensitive skin. It's the first kabuki brush I've ever purchased so I'm pretty attached to it and I still use it even though I have new brushes, haha.

If I hadn't lost my receipt (Ulta has a no employee returns or exchanges w/out receipt policy) I probably would have returned this brush. It's mediocre at best. It seemed like a really good value for a kabuki brush (especially w/my discount!) but after using it I'm not sure it was worth the money. For one thing, it's not very soft. Maybe I'm just spoiled by my super-soft synthetic brushes; I've never used a natural hair brush I liked, but this thing just feels scratchy to me. Second, it sheds like crazy. I expected it to shed at first, but I've had this for months now and on the rare occasion that I use it it still sheds. Third, the pink faded really quickly and washed out almost completely the first time I shampooed the brush! I used color-safe shampoo, too. The only reason why I gave it 2 lippies instead of one is that it is fairly inexpensive, it's very portable, it's still very cute even though the pink is mostly gone, and despite the roughness and shedding it does get the job done pretty well - I'll use it for travel until I get around to finding a suitable replacement.

Cute brush (Hot pink!), nice size (Small, portable, easy to control!), and fairly soft. Pretty good for the price, although if it wasn't so cute I wouldn't give it such a good rating.

Possibly the cutest brush I've ever seen. It is very soft and doesn't really shed at all.

Pretty much an echo of what everyone else has said - reasonably priced at $16, is super soft and is cruelty-free. Picks up the right amount of pigment, and hasn't shed excessively. Adorable hot-pink dipped bristles are just too cute as well - looks like no other makeup brush in my collection!

This is a wonderful powder brush and I'm extremely happy with it. I had been wanting a kabuki brush for a very long time, and I was very thrilled to have recieved this in a swap. This is a soft, luxurious, full size brush head which does it's job very gracefully. For me, it picks up the right amount of powder, although this is a matter of preference. I am a fan of sheer powder coverage, ladies who prefer meadium-heavy coverage may not have their best experience with this brush. If this is you, you might want to find a brush with densely packed bristles, such as brushes from The Body Shop. Unfortunately, I find that this brush sheds heavily. This is a shame, becuase the bristles are so lovely it would be a shame to loose any strands from this adorable, pink brush head. I'm removing a lippy for this fact alone, since I seem to be losing at least one bristle per use. Otherwise, this is a great brush which is as functional as it it is beautiful. If only, other things in life would be as functional as they are beautiful.

The brush first caught my attention because of the pink bristles. I'm a big fan of pink, so I decided to give it a try-- and it is also one of the cheaper brushes of course. I love it so far. I use it for my Studio Finish powder and it distributes very evenly, and looks more natural than if I applied it with the sponge provided. Has only shed once, and this is great news compared to previous brushes I've used. The one thing I don't like about it is the scent. It smells a little wierd. But all in all, I would recommend this brush and I would definately buy it again!

I hate this thing. I bought it on the advice of a Sephora employee, saying it was good as a kabuki-type brush for applying bronzer & the like. I am soooo disappointed. The bristles fall out like crazy each time I use it. It doesn't fluff up well, and my cheapo regular powder brush is much fuller. It doesn't pick up blush/powder well. And because the tips of the bristles are pink to begin with, you can't tell if/whether there's anything on it (I think that's intentional). Argh. Going to get my money back, hopefully. Sephora, why must you deceive me?

I'm really disappointed. This is an adorable brush at a great price and feels great. No bristles have come out yet either. BUT, I feel like it doesn't pick up the powder and distribute it on my face. I've used other brushes with the same powder, so I know it's not the powder that isn't working. It'll sit on my vanity and make it look pretty, which is perfect for me! haha.

This brush is great. I dont necessarily find it cute, actually I really don't like the way it looks...however it is an AMAZING brush at a great price point. I use it to put on studiofix and/bronzer. It deposits the right amount of color and applies smoothly, the bristles are pretty soft. I haven't had any problem with shedding. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good powder/bronzer brush.

Huge rave for this brush! At $16, I couldn't pass it up. The hairs are very soft (esp after a few washings) and i have not really had a shedding problem with mine. At first a few hairs did fall out, but none since. Overall, I highly recommend this!

I hate to break the good-review chain but this brush, in my opinion, is just "eh". It isn't a defective brush - in fact I'm amazed it's so good considering the price (very cheap). However, it isn't GREAT, and after washing it for the first time a few days ago the hairs have changed in texture. Maybe it's just mine though, seeing as nobody else has had problems with it. Also, something that bothers me A LOT is that it still sheds a hair here and there, and sometimes it'll get on my face and it makes it itch! Haha. Still looking for my HG powder/blush brush :(

Oh, I truly love this cute brush! I admit, I didn't expect much at the price of $16. This brush has proven me wrong! I bought this too because it's made of "cruelty free" goat hair. This hasn't shed on me one hair! It's super soft, applies powder perfectly, and cruelty free. I'm amazed =)

I bought this from sephora.com based on reviews on MUA and the fact that it is very well priced compared to other powder brushes. It has shed a couple of hairs but nothing out of the ordinary. It is very soft. I reccomend it highly.
