“ Type: Hand Brush / Brand: Everyday Minerals / Suitable for: Hand „
I love using make-up from the Everyday Minerals range and recently when placing an order I decided to add a new brush into my cart. A decent brush when applying mineral foundation is essential, using the wrong type can simply mess the wrong thing up and make your foundation appear streaky.
Kabuki brushes are known as the best for applying mineral make-up and, as I was so impressed with the Everyday Minerals make-up I knew their brushes would be of a good quality too.
The Long Handled Kabuki brush makes a change from the usual Kabuki brushes you often see, with a short stubby handle. My current Kabuki brush was a one I got in a set by BareMinerals and after a while the bristles have started to feel too harsh and scratchy on my skin. I was looking for something much softer and more gentle when applying my make-up. This Kabuki brush was described as a "luxuriously soft" brush so sounded like just what I was looking for.
Everyday Minerals also mention the brush has "densely packed synthetic bristles" to give good flawless coverage when using their base, face or cheek powders. This brush is also Vegan with eco-friendly 100% renewable bamboo handles, and at a price of $10 (around £6-7 depending on the current exchange rate!) this is certainly a bargain! Decent make-up brushes can often cost over £10 and in fact a similar Kabuki brush from The Body Shop with equally soft bristles cost's £15, so at half the price this is not one to be snubbed.
When my brush arrived I was thrilled to find the bristles of this brush were extremely soft! It feels lovely when applying mineral-up on my face, so soft and gentle. It's also much easier for me to apply my mineral foundation using this brush, I can blend it in much easier and give my face a wonderful flawless finish.
I dab my brush into my mineral make-up and it stays on the brush nicely, when I glide the brush across my face the foundation is easily blended in. I have found this brush such a joy to use that I can't see me ever using a different brand now!
The brush itself is extremely good quality, the 'eco-friendly' bamboo handle is firm and it's easy to grip when using the brush. It's nice to look at and those bristles are just so soft to touch, you might find yourself running your hands over them a few times!
Overall I can't recommend this brush highly enough. The Everyday Minerals make-up range itself is brilliant, I'm so impressed with all of their products that they're the only ones I use now. I did previously use BareMinerals but their products lack the different shades and many ndifferent products that Everyday Minerals too, and they're also much cheaper!
This brush is no exception to the good quality I have come to expect from Everyday Minerals. Whilst US based it's very easier to order, postage isn't too expensive and you don't wait long for your order to arrive.
I recommend giving EverydayMinerals a look and this brush is certainly an essential if you are buying any mineral make-up products!
Can be used for foundation, blush and loose powder application /
