Mineral makeup had us at our first swirl and tap. We will never deny that. But some kabuki brushes, especially in drugstore brand mineral makeup, leave much to be desired.
So when we first discovered Tarte’s Glam on the Go kabuki brush (it came as a free gift at Ulta), we were excited to see if it lived up to our high standards. Oh, let us tell you…it did.
When you first feel the bristles, you almost can’t believe how soft they are. Your next thought is how dense the brush is. We knew that with such a dense brush, we were going to get fantastic, full coverage with our mineral makeup – which we did. When we apply the right amount of makeup, we get a beautiful airbrushed finished that is hard to find with other kabuki brushes.
Plus, Tarte is such a wonderful cosmetics company. All of their products are cruelty free, phthalates and sodium lauryl sulfate free, wrapped in biodegradable packaging.
And above all, one of the most notable things about Tarte’s Glam on the Go brush is how well built it is. We washed this brush out about one or twice a week for quite some time, and never lost a bristle. Now that’s solid construction.
The perfect size for stowing away in an already-jam packed makeup bag, cute reusable faux croc (we like to use it for lipsticks or change) and a perfect dome top for beautiful blending, we find it hard to think we’d find another kabuki brush for the price that we loved more! $29, sephora.com
