I finally caved and picked up this adorable brush set from Eco Tools at Target. I was surprised to see them on clearance and grabbed them right away. They are very soft, cruelty free and made of recycled materials (the handles). Each kabuki has a specific task to perform and they perform it well. You can see more details at the Eco Tools website or on their blog. They retail for $14.99 but you can find them on sale in many places like Drugstore.com. I got them for about $11 and used a coupon on top of that, woohoo!
When I use them, I applied my Bare Escentuals foundation with my Eco Tools retractable Kabuki and then used the conceal brush to apply Summer Bisque. This brush is awesome for concealing. It isn't flat like most concealer brushes and seems to work much like a soft finger would. You can pat concealer on, blend it out and repeat as needed. It is really soft and glides along your skin so it is gentle around your eyes and nose. Those are the spots I always need to conceal.
Next I use the bronze brush to apply my Faux Tan Matte. It worked really well to sweep the color over the spots on my face where the sun would naturally hit.
After that I use the Buff brush to apply Mineral Veil. I sweep it all over my face and make sure there aren't any spots with too much. This brush works great for applying and blending out your finishing powder. It sweeps across the contours of your face effortlessly.
Finally, I use the contour brush to apply my blush. I wasn't sure how the shape of this brush would work but it is really great. It swoops right along the apple of my cheek and up my cheekbone to apply blush or radiance or a contour color. I actually think this is my favorite of the bunch.
This is a fun and adorable kabuki set. They are smaller so great for travel but also good for day to day use. I love the patterns on the recycled handles and the bristles are synthetic and super soft. These get a big Beauty Au Natural thumbs up.
