Product Review: Becca Soft Kabuki Brush

Where to purchase: ULTA, Sephora, and online at
Price: $30

Made in China

Description from the package: This ultra-soft, luxurious, synthetic fiber kabuki brush is designed to provide seamless coverage. The flat, dense shape collects the perfect amount of product to buff & blend flawlessly for a natural finish. Ideal for mineral, loose, or pressed powder.
Thoughts: I love brushes of any kind, as long as, they're soft and durable. For that reason, I was excited to try this out!
It has a simple, round hand with one word on it "Becca."
Here's a closer look at the brush.
Here's another look at the brush at a different angle.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's no scent whatsoever. The reason why I brought this up is that some brushes actually have an artificial scent. Secondly, I like the packaging of the brush. It's simple, sturdy, and well-made. I love that it has a flat handle at the end. It makes it easy to stand the brush up right. It's also round with the brush hair spreading at the tips. When you lay the brush on the side, it doesn't move because of the hair that's spread out. I wouldn't say it's the most travel-friendly. It doesn't come with a top to protect the hair. You definitely need to store in a way that the hairs don't go all over the place. With that said, it's a big brush that's best used at home or at least I think so. Before I used the brush, I did a thorough wash. None of the hairs shed off. It's so well-made and the hairs are made out of great quality synthetic fiber. It does take slightly longer to dry than other brushes because of the dense hair. Third, the hair is soft like a baby's skin. I have felt brushes that are soft but once applied onto the skin, it's scratches. You don't have to worry about that with this brush. It's soft on the skin. The description mentions the brush is dense. It is, but at the same time, it isn't. I know that sounds contradictory but there are a lot of hairs. It's dense at the ferrule but loose at you go the tip. Since it's loose at the tip, it makes the brush soft but does a great job because of it's dense hair at the ferrule. I hope that made sense. Lastly, I highly recommend this brush. It really does buff the powder into the skin and does a great job. Also, you can use the tip of one side of the brush as a highlighter or even on a bronzer. It's not only for buffing. You can make your own rules when it comes to using brushes.
