The Body Shop Nature’s Minerals Foundation & Blusher Kabuki

It’s been about two years I am using mineral cosmetics. The first ones I have ever bought were a blush and a foundation by The Body Shop.  Till that moment I didn’t have a kabuki brush and that’s why I decided to buy Nature’s Minerals Foundation and Blusher kabuki brushes.
These two brushes have many thing in common and that’s why I decided to write both reviews in one article.

The Kabuki Foundation Brush is the classic kabuki brush. It is made of synthetic hair and has a rounded shape. It is very dense and and soft and it can be used for applying different powders, for example mineral cosmetics, powders e.t.c. It provides good coverage and fits the contours of my face. The handle is short and fits easily into the palm, but I would prefer if it was a little bit bigger. I am using it for about two years and I haven’t noticed any shedding or bleeding. It costs about €18 and you can find it at TBS stores or website.

The Kabuki Blusher Brush is made just like the previous one; synthetic bristles with a rounded shape that allow circular movements across the cheeks. Its high density ensures that just the right amount of powders is held between the bristles. The Blusher Brush is smaller that the Foundation Brush. I haven’t noticed any bleeding or shedding till now. It costs about €16.

Each of these brushes come in a cute black pouch which I’ve lost when I moved to my new home… (ooops!)

You might think that they are a little bit pricey and that’s true. I got them with a 40% off, but after two years of using them, I have to admit that they are amazing brushes and the price is more than ok!

Have you ever used these brushes? In general, what do you think about TBS brushes?


Let me know girls!

My Sigma Stories: F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki

Hi girls!

I am a Sigma Beauty Addict! I adore Sigma’s brushes and I want them all! When I received my Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki I washed it in the same day and started to that to use it! So, today I would love to talk you about this brush.

The Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki is a buffer brush that promises to give a flawless and a high definition result. It can be used to blend liquid or powder products, such as liquid foundation, powder, creamy foundation e.t.c..

The bristles are synthetic, as we can understand by the name, not very long; it is also very dense. This brush is very accurate in its use. I adore that it is really soft, like a velvet touch on your face.

I have used this brush for applying liquid foundation, mineral foundation, powder and blush and I really like the results. I like that it does not leave any lines when I apply my liquid foundation. Plus, it hasn’t lost any hair when I wash it nor when I use it.

I find it THE perfect brush not only for every girl but also for make up artists. It combines good price, good quality, perfect results!

You can purchase it for $16 at Sigma’s site. It also comes with the Synthetic Face Kit that costs $42.

Which is your favorite Sigma brush? Which ones have you tried?

Kisses girls!
