My Two Cents: I have absolutely no complaints about this brush. It is incredibly versatile as it can be used with any and all types of products. The bristles are treated with an antibacterial agent and are super soft and gentle. I am really impressed by how beautifully well made Bdellium Tools are. This brush is currently on for half of the original list price which is seriously a steal. Oh yeah, and it’s purple!
While I ordered three brushes in total just to give Bdellium Tools a try, this was the first one I used and quite frankly, it truly was a case of love at first sight which quickly turned into pure infatuation upon first use. I like to use the Precision Kabuki to apply my M.A.C. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Since I don’t wear liquid or cream foundations, I find that this helps me achieve excellent coverage, especially with a powder product. Other brushes I’ve used leave me looking chalky but the 957 seems to really blend the product into the skin leaving a more natural looking flawless finish.
This was definitely my gateway brush because just as I said in a tweet to Bdellium, I am smitten. Since getting into makeup I have been expanding my brush collection by trying out a few brushes from various different manufacturers in an attempt to get a feel for them with the hope that I will eventually land on company that I feel good enough about to make a more substantial investment in a large set of their brushes. For ages I have been coveting some Sigma brushes, and while I still want to give them along with a few Sedona Lace and Crown brushes a try, I think that Bdellium might just be “the one.”
Tips: Keep your brushes clean and in good condition by doing a regular thorough wash with soap and water while spot cleaning in between.
Manufacturer Care Instructions: Wash with regular shampoo, rinse, then lay flat to air dry. For more information on care from Bdellium click here.
