I am always on the look out for new brushes, I really don't think you can have too many!
Well you can particularly when it comes to wash day a.k.a Sunday and it takes a good hour to sanitize them all and curse yourself to the high heavens! Anyway after really enjoying Avon's Eyeliner brushes I thought I'd try another from the line!
The first thing that struck me when I received my Avon Kabuki brush was how compact it is,
that doesn't particularly bother me but if you are looking for a larger brush this may not be suited.
Like a good few Kabuki brushes out there this doesn't have a full handle but comes with a little stub of a handle much like a shaving brush. It has a decent weight to it and looks sophisticated thanks to all black colour scheme.
This brush does have to be washed before you use it not only is that common sense but it prolongs the life of the brush and in this case helps to soften up the stiff bristles.The Avon Kabuki brush is densely packed but the bristles do require a wash or two with a conditioning wash in order to soften them up a little, otherwise it can be quite rough to use.
How you use your Kabuki brush is up to you! I don't honestly believe in 'Brush Rules', if it works for you go for it.I tried it with various make-up formulas in order to give the brush a fair trial. With powder it picks up a good amount of product and easily buffs the product into the skin.When I tested it with cream and liquid formulas I did encounter that it absorbed more product than it dispensed which means you will use more than you actually require that being said it did give an air brushed effect which is always nice. However it is not the softest of brushes!
For me this Kabuki is a travel powder/emergency brush which is aided by the nifty little pouch
that the brush comes housed in, not only will it prevent damage to your kabuki brush
but also your handbag, if only I had a solution to ball point pens (Hello pencil case!).
The Avon Kabuki brush costs £6 at full price but it is currently on offer for £4.
