Best Brush For Highlight

By B.P.

from Fort Wayne, Indiana

Comments about Japonesque Kumadori Contour & Highlighting Brush:

I'm on the positive side of the debate over this brush. I've had it for about a month now and haven't had any issues with the brush being rough or shedding bristles. The brush is soft, picks up the right amount of product, and is so effortless to use. Totally worth the price and I'd highly recommend purchasing it.

      Bought this to use as a contour brush. The shape is amazing and perfect for contouring with powders, but this brush sheds SO BADLY. My products, sink, and my face are covered in tiny hairs after I use it. I wish the bristles were more secure, it would be perfect if it didn't shed all over the place.

          The best brush for brush and bronzer.It is not the softest, but It pick up the perfect amount of pigment and blend it beautifuly on the checks. The handle is so thin that it somehow made me feel like a painter everytime I pick up this brush, not just me put on my makeup every morning. The reason why i didn't give it five stars is the material, you can peel it off from the handle so I don't know how long it last. I still love it so much,give try it and you will never go back.

            Comments about Japonesque Kumadori Contour & Highlighting Brush:

            I was really excited about this brush, but when. I got it i was SO dissappointed. When using it, it hardly picks up product. I have to keep going in again and again. It feel cheap, and the bristles are so stiff that it makes a weird sound when I use it on my face. It does blend well and doesn't do a bad job, but I️ don't believe it's worth the price. I would grab a real techniques brush instead or splurge on the NARS one like this.

            I wanted to love it...

            By Sammie

            from New York

            Comments about Japonesque Kumadori Contour & Highlighting Brush:

            Ever since I saw one of my fav youtubers, Nikkie Tutorials, use this brush and rave about it, I have had my eye on it. So I purchased it in my last Ulta haul & when I received it & felt how soft it was, I couldn't wait to use it. Imagine my horror when after sweeping highlighter onto my cheekbones, I also swept something else onto my cheekbones- LOTS of little hairs!! I was really hoping that was just a fluke and there were loose hairs and once I washed it a couple of times it would stop shedding. No such luck. I have tried to use this brush 4 times bc that's how much I wanted to love it and it sheds just as bad now as it did when I first got it and when I wash it, the clumps of hair that come out is just scary. I see so many great reviews, did I get a dud?? I do see other say their brush sheds as well which leads me to believe that maybe japonesque needs some quality control... so disappointing.

                      This is a great quality brush. I will pick up another at some point. However the crease brushes they make are the best!
