e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Kabuki Face Brush: pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

In a recent e.l.f. Cosmetics purchase I finally added the Kabuki Face Brush to my shopping cart. It's from their Studio line of brushes, which I actually really like because of how affordable they are (especially during 50% off sales) and the fact that they work well. The Kabuki Face Brush is another e.l.f. brush that makes my "good brushes at low prices" list.

Check out my pics, stats, and review...

e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Kabuki Face Brush

Basic stats for e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Kabuki Face Brush:
Brush Type: synthetic haired; anti-bacterial; vegan-friendly
Cost/Availability: $5 each (although you can usually get this for 50% off during e.l.f. sales). Available on the e.l.f. Cosmetics website, as well as other e.l.f. retailers.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses!

Brush Type:
This is a synthetic haired Taklon brush. Taklon is a common name for a synthetic fiber used in various brushes. It's a smooth, soft, and somewhat fragile polyester derivative devoid of any protein component or allergen elements and is therefore used in cosmetic industries as a green, vegan, allergy free or synthetic alternative to animal hair brushes. This brush is also anti-bacterial. Because this brush is softer and more absorbent, it can be used with wet or dry products.

Just $5 at regular price, although I stock up on their Studio line during 50% off sales. Available on the e.l.f. Cosmetics website, as well as other e.l.f. retailers -- like Target.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Kabuki Face Brush:
I had wanted this brush for awhile but for some reason never purchased it. I have almost all the e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio brushes so I knew I would eventually purchase it during a 50% off sale. That's exactly what happened with my last online e.l.f. purchase.

I was really happy with the brush. I think e.l.f. Studio line of brushes are really good quality for the price. They're not top-notch by any means, but they work and they work well. The Kabuki Face Brush is a nice size and is very soft. There is shedding that occurs, but that's to be expected and really not a huge deal to me.

For $5 -- just $2.50 on sale -- this is a great brush to own! I recommend picking one up during the next 50% off e.l.f. sale!

Now let me know what you think...
Do you own this brush? If so, what do you think of it? If not, would you purchase this brush?Discuss in the comments below.


  1. I love it, I always use it to apply powder foundation or mineral ones!

  2. i am in love with this brush. it's the first kabuki brush i ever purchased, and because of the price, of course, it didn't hurt to try it. i'm so glad that i fell in love with it. i use it to apply my elf hd powder.

  3. are the 50% sales normally site wide or only on certain lines?

    im new to e.l.f. and dont want to buy something full price if it will be half off next week.

  4. @ Sarah: I'd recommend waiting for a sale because they happen very often. Sometimes the sale will only be on the Mineral line or on the Studio line. The site wide sales are more rare but do happen; usually around holidays. They are usually 50% off or sometimes 55% off! And don't forget to check places like Retailmenot for coupon codes!

  5. thanks! so far the best I've been able to get is 10 dollars off an order of 30. But with shipping charges I feel like Im getting gipped since they are such cheap products.
