Woohoo! As requested a while ago, here’s a showdown challenge between the Everyday Minerals Flat Top brush and the Lumiere Cosmetics Kabuki brush. Both are highly rated for mineral foundation application.
But how do they rate against each other?
Note: I do not use mineral foundation. The challenge was done using 2-way powder foundation.
Everyday Minerals flat top feels softer on the skin
Both brushes are lovely and soft on the skin. However, the Everyday Minerals brush feels just a touch softer on my skin. The Lumiere kabuki is a little floppier but its also nice – its a matter of which you prefer.
Everyday Minerals flat top applies with more coverage
Both brushes are dense and pick up powder well. Its advisable to tap off excess before applying. However, I find the flat top brush picks up more colour and applies foundation with more coverage.
If you want something more sheer the Lumiere kabuki is advisable. It deposits powder and colour more evenly. The Everyday Minerals flat top deposits colour more heavily but still less so than a sponge.
