Yes. My AN kabuki took about two days to dry totally. I think I washed it on a Sunday evening and it was ready to use Tuesday afternoon. Synthetic takes a looong time to dry! pfeif.gif

oh boy, I'm gonna need a back up for sure then!! I wish I had known that, I would've just ordered them both at the same time! I suppose I'll have to use my BE kabuki as a back up in the meantime...........I soooooo hate that brush!

I'm one of the very few people who has never used a Kabuki, didn't know I needed one! Is it used for foundation application or for buffing afterward? I can't tell the difference between Lumiere's Baby Buki and the the other Kabuki w/the short handle, aside from the price, does anyone know? Do you have more control with the long handle one? What's the importance???

I have heard the babi buki is really tiny.

Boar's hair sounds about right. I hate the BE brushes.

 

My favorite kabuki is actually this one: eBay: PINK KABUKI BRUSH For Minerals, Powder, Blush New! SALE (item 300117386149 end time Jun-08-07 18:27:38 PDT)

 

It's goat hair but it's high quality, so it's soft at the tips but still dense enough to give good coverage. I also have a luscious kabuki (squirrel) and it was too soft so it didn't give good foundation coverage. It works excellently for veil, though.

no more animal hair brushes for me after having such a major allergic reaction to the darn sable brushes from EDM.

fishchick: my Lumiere long-handled kabuki needs to dry overnight. I do have a Lumiere flat-top which I use alternately with the kabuki. They're soooooo soft, you won't regret it. OM's brush is like BE and since BE's is scratchy I didn't bother to use my OM brush (I sold it).

Okay, I'm confused here. I too remember seeing the AN flat-top stated as having the same bristles as the kabuki, which would be synthetic. That's why I ordered it. When I got mine, it definitely wasn't synthetic. I was quite unhappy with it (see above post). When I checked their website again, that wording was changed. Now I checked yesterday, and it's almost the same wording as before BUT referencing an entirely different brush! And the current wording on the original flat-top I bought from them now says the bristles are natural and synthetic. What the heck?? I was under the impression I was purchasing a synthetic brush that would feel like their kabuki and that I could use to apply foundation.

 

I did write to them when I first got the brush, explaining the bristles were splaying everywhere, so they sent another. Unfortunately, it's the same as the first, and this one smells (like animal or something yucky). I have no use for this brush. Any thoughts?

I would write them to see if you can return or exchange it. They are very nice and I'm sure they would work with you. I have the synthetic flat top and I bet you would love it.

 

They are getting in the awesome synthetic flat top in a couple weeks. They have a picture of it on their site. I got mine from Forever Female before I knew AN was getting it. They said it comes from overseas.

 

I don't know what happened with the descriptions. I know at one time they were selling a synthetic flat top. The description specifically said it was the same hair as the Premium Kabuki. Now they have (had, actually, it is "out of stock") the natural hair flat top. I bet they stop carrying it. I bet they replace it with the synthetic flat top. Sooo many people are converting to all synthetic brushes. I don't think ANYBODY wants the shedding, allergic, ruffness of natural brushes anymore.

I emailed them and this is the reply I got (in under 30 minutes!) Apparently a typo on the website and they are fixing it. I guess they are adding new brushes - I love synthetic brushes:

 

Dear Marti,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding Aubrey Nicole Mineral Makeup and Skin Care. Thank you for pointing out that our Flat Top brush stated both natural and synthetic bristles. That is absolutely a typo. The AN Flat Top buffer/bronzer is 100% synthetic bristles and is the same brush that we have been selling for several months. It is out of stock at this time, but we hope to have it back online within a few weeks. We recently made changes to the website to include the new Flat Top Foundation brush and the webmaster inadvertently made a mistake with the wording on the original flat top. The new Flat Top brush is also 100% Synthetic bristles and cut specifically for foundation application. It is the same synthetic bristles as our incredibly soft AN Premium Kabuki. We received many requests for it and are now waiting their arrival, which will hopefully be in the next couple of weeks.

Again, thanks for pointing out our mistake and we should have that incorrect information fixed shortly. We look forward to hearing from you again.

AN

I would like to purchase some brushes for cheap (which I know is nearly impossible). Specifically a flat top brush (better coverage, I hear). Can anyone recommend cheap makeup brushes? Preferably under $10, but if not, I would still like to know about it.

Check out the thread I posted named "Forever Female Ultimate Brush Line". It has a link to the site. Their long handle flat top is great! It is soft as silk. The price isn't too bad either. I get much better coverage with my flat top than with my kabuki.

 

Hope this helps you out!

You can get the BE's heavenly face brush for less than $10 in ebay. But it is not as soft as synthetic brush that katnahat and snowjesh mentioned.

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
