Bourjois Powder Brush

I love kabuki brushes. Not sure if it’s the cute tiny packaging, ease of use or the versatility. I own a quite a few kabuki brushes, I want to own as many as possible. I use them to apply compacts, loose powders, blush sometimes. I picked up the Bourjois Powder Brush on impulse, saw it on a counter and picked it up. Read more to find out how it fared.

The product claims to “Bourjois’ make-up brushes are ultra-soft and high quality – enabling easy application and a professional result every time.

Perfect for use at home or on the move the short handle means it’s small enough to fit in your handbag, but with the long soft bristle head it is perfect for use with bronzers, powders and blushers.”

My Experience with Bourjois Powder Brush

Bristle Texture: The bristles are soft and they don’t scratch. But I wish they were gentler. In fact I picked up an unbranded kabuki brush from Health & Glow and found the bristles to be super soft.

Handling: The brush is easy to handle. It picks up decent amount of product. I normally use this to apply compact / loose powder. It also works well for applying brush and bronzer.

Bristle Quality: For the first few washes the bristles shed a bit. But after that there has been hardly any shedding.

Washing & Drying: It is easy to wash to brush. You can use a brush cleaner or mild shampoo. The bristles don’t stain either. Air-dry it and it is good to go.

The Bad

  • Sheds a bit
  • Not as easily available

    1. I like Ecotools brushes. They are very soft and gentle. TBS Kabuki brush is also very soft. It’s a little on the expensive side, but a good investment.
