QVS KABUKI BRUSH REVIEW

The Kabuki brush has an oversized head (pictured above) for which is ideal for a full face and body coverage. The brush consists of natural bristles that evenly distributes powder, blush and bronzer onto the face. It's definitely made to be used for powder, bronzer and shimmer application. You get the maximum coverage and dusting by using this Kabuki brush and most of all, it's so incredibly cute to hold. You can also fit this snuggly into your travel bag for on-the-go touch up purposes. It's not too heavy at all so it's easy to keep in your bag. 

Using the right tools is so important in looking to achieve a particular make-up style, whether it be contouring or to create more dimension for your overall look. And also using the right tools make a big difference for your make-up application and having maximum control with the gripping of the brush itself to applying the product is so important. If you want a flawless finish to your powder, bronzer and shimmer then definitely look to check this brush out by QVS. I found no fall-outs to using this brush and this Kabuki brush just fits perfectly into my palm. 

HOW TO USE KABUKI BRUSH: 
  • Look to dip the brush into powder, tap off any excess powder. 
  • Gently work the brush across your face and neck for an even coverage of your powder, bronzer application. 
  • You don't need much powder on the Kabuki brush so a little goes a long way. 
HOW TO CLEAN KABUKI BRUSH: 
  • I always look to clean my brushes after every use because I always love to keep my brushes super, squeaky clean - so that when I do apply the next time round, my brushes are clean to work with. 
  • You can simply wash your brush in warm, soapy water, rinsing thoroughly. What I like to do is to apply some baby shampoo onto the brush and brushing this up and down on my palm. This allows for the brushes to be effectively cleaned. 
  • Make sure you rinse and allow the brushes to air dry. 
    WHERE TO BEST PURCHASE: 
    • RRP $15.49
    • QVS is available at Target and selected pharmacies Australia wide.

    QVS POWDER BRUSH REVIEW

    This is a sheer to medium coverage type of brush for powder based make up including mineral based powders, blush or bronzer. The brush is made 100% of natural bristles which means they're naturally soft and fluffy to use on your face and body. They're so comfortable when used on the face and there's no harsh feeling with the bristles which is good. I love how I get a good sheer to medium coverage to my overall face and I can adjust this according to my desired look. This is made essentially for coverage and dusting purposes so if you're looking to contour or create more dimension such as highlighting, then look to check this super affordable brush out. The brush has a natural plump head which ensures that powder is evenly diffused evenly over your face. I tend to use this brush for applying my bronzer and blush too because the head is large enough to cover the cheekbones and sides of my face and also look to create more dimension to it which I am really satisfied about. 

    Overall, it's a great brush that offers a high level of coverage and dusting. If you're looking for an affordable powder brush, then this is not to be missed. It does the job and I have been really happy about this powder brush when it comes to applying my powders onto my face. 

    HOW TO USE POWDER BRUSH: 
    • Look to dip the brush into powder, tap off any excess powder. 
    • Gently work the brush across your face and neck for an even coverage of your powder, bronzer application. 
    • You don't need much powder on the Powder brush so a little goes a long way. 
    HOW TO CLEAN POWDER BRUSH:

    FEATURING THE QVS ANGLED BLUSHER BRUSH

    I would have to say this is the perfect Angled Blusher brush by QVS that looks to define and highlight your cheeks with a professional touch. As you can see the brush is made to be an angled brush which means you can use this for powder, mineral blushes and even bronzers. It's perfect in that case because it's made for highlighting purposes and if there's a particular area on your face that you'd like to "bring" out more in depth and colour, then this is a suitable brush for that purpose. You can start using it on the sides of your face and cheekbones. The bristles are made to feel natural where it has a tapered head with facial curves which is super ideal for defining, shading and highlighting purposes. 

    I also found that with the tapered head featuring the facial curves, it actually allows for an easier application making my whole make-up process so convenient and makes my life much easier. 

    HOW TO USE ANGLED BLUSHER BRUSH: 
    • Look to dip the brush into powder, tap off any excess powder. 
    • Sweep the colour from the apples of your cheek towards your hairline, in one direction only. 
    • When highlighting, apply a light stroke of bronzer or shimmer to the highest point of your cheekbone, just below your eyes.
