I came here to do justice for this brush. I don’t understand all the negative reviews, like this brush hurts people. ...ive been using this brush for 10 years in my professional kit and own at least 5. its the only blush and bronzer brush i use. it definitely requires a soft hand because it can be scratchy but it is incredible for blending and applying small amounts of product and building it up. its a beautiful and delicate object that needs a gentle cleanser so you dont dry out the bristles.

What it is: A fluffy, dome-shaped kabuki brush with multiple uses.

What Else You Need to Know: Form meets function with Yachiyo Kabuki Brush. Its fluffy, gently tapered, spiral-dome head is used to define cheekbones and highlight, blend, and diffuse color on the face and eyes. Its hand-spun, black wisteria handle showcases its unique character.
