I was using mineral makeup about a year ago. In that time, I ran the gamut of all sorts of brands of mineral foundation. However, for brushes I zeroed in straight on the Lumiere Kabuki brush, no second thoughts. I’d read so many good things about the kabuki I knew I’d have to order it.
This review is for the benefit of those who are still using mineral foundation and want a good kabuki brush that can buff in the foundation for a flawless finish. You need look no further than the Kabuki from Lumiere Cosmetics. For some strange reason its not available at their online store – perhaps they are restocking. Mine is the full size Kabuki which isn’t all that big as you can see above. Just a little shorter than a Dior lipstick.
The synthetic bristles are so wonderfully soft and pliable and its packed very densely – all the better to buff in the foundation. I found that because it was so dense it worked very well for applying a light layer of mineral foundation over your skin and for buffing. Your skin never gets scratched by the brush because its so soft! Do you see the recurring exclamations of “soft!”? Its because it is!
However I no longer use mineral makeup so my Lumiere Kabuki brush got placed by the wayside. Until recently when I was looking for my powder brush that had slipped behind my dresser – ew! At a bit of a loss, I decided to try using the Lumiere Kabuki brush.
