The Mineral Makeup Blogâ€™s first entry was about the kabuki brush. My very first mineral makeup brush was a kabuki brush. Its stubby handle stands out from the conventional long-handled face brushes. My first kabuki brush shed a lot, which made me switch to a flat top brush. I was very happy using a flat top brush until I got my hands on the famous BE Kabuki.
My bossâ€™ wife handed down her Bare Escentuals stash to me, which instantly brightened up my day. But if there was one product I was most excited about, it was the BE Kabuki. Even if I love my Monave Flat Top brush, I was willing to give the BE Kabuki a try.
Iâ€™ve read mixed reviews about the Bare Escentuals Kabuki on Makeupalley.com. Some people find the natural hairs scratchy, while others complain about the shedding hairs. So far, I donâ€™t think the brush is scratchy, and it hardly sheds. The brush head is dense — something I like in any brush that I use to apply mineral foundations. The stubby handle is great for traveling.
Now, I interchange my Monave Flat Top and my Bare Escentuals Kabuki Brush when applying mineral foundation. The BE Kabuki instantly picks up the minerals from my swirling bowl and I can buff with ease, just like my Monave Flat Top brush. The Bare Escentuals Kabuki is a great choice if you want full coverage.
