Review: The Balm Mini Kabuki Brush
Here's a review on The Balm Mini Kabuki Brush
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Beauty Bar boutiques
I always see this thing in Beauty Bar, but never really bothered to check it out. Good thing some kind peeps gave it to me last year-If not for them, I will never ever find out how convenient, handy, and functional this thing is! It's one of my current favorites!
The Balm's Mini Kabuki Brush is your all- around retouch brush: It can apply powder, blush, or bronzer, or even a sheer wash of color on your lids. It comes in a compact shell-which is probably the most brilliant brush case I've ever seen-that protects the bristles and maintains the brush's overall shape.
THE BALM MINI KABUKI BRUSH IN DETAIL
This brush is only under two inches long. Bristles are made from goat hair, which is a little scratchy in my opinion so I wash it with regular shampoo with conditioner to soften the bristles for a bit. During the first wash, it has shed a couple of hair-around three or four strands but on the second, third and succeeding washes, it didn't anymore.
Its handle is quite small, so people with big hands may have a problem gripping it properly. I sometimes encounter this problem too so whenever I'm using it, I grasp the area between the base of the actual brush and the rim of the handle for a steadier grip.

Its circumference is good for spot application: It can apply makeup on the tighter and smaller areas of the face.
In this photo, it looks quite small to make a difference but in actual, the diameter of the brush is actually a little big for its overall size-That's a good thing because it contributes to the overall firmness and usefulness of the brush.
And for a very small brush, it's very dense: It grabs a good amount of powder and can blend makeup properly onto skin. The length of the bristles is just right and it lets me control makeup application.
It has found a spot in my makeup kit, especially now that I've changed into something smaller. This baby doesn't demand space at all!
THE BALM MINI KABUKI BRUSH IN ACTION
Whenever I retouch my makeup, I only focus on my T-Zone and sometimes, my blush so most of the time, I don't really feel the need to bring a big or medium- sized brush and this thing really works for me. To those who are expecting a flawless, airbrush- like finish with this brush, you might not get it from this as it is not really intended for that. For me, it's just for retouching.
It's very affordable, a good emergency brush that you can invariably have in your bag, and pocket- sized yet works decently. I recommend it to very light travelers, people who are looking for a very compact brush for makeup compacts that don't come with applicators, and just about anyone who's looking for a good spot brush. By the way, this has a bigger version too, and that is for your boudoir.
