Bourjois Paris Kabuki Brush: Review

Hey all,
I didn't want to begin this post on a gloomy note but with deep grief I want to tell you gals that I have LOST all the comments of all my posts :(
I'm sure you understand what a comment means to blogger :'(
I tried to fix it,only with little success :(
Anyways..putting aside the dark clouds..let the sunshine peep through :)
Makeup brushes are to a makeup lover what chopsticks are to noodles (though I'm more of a fork person) .. crappy comparison :P I know :D
The product in discussion is the BOURJOIS Paris Kabuki Brush
Product Description:
Bourjois’ make-up brushes are ultra-soft and high quality – enabling easy application and a professional result every time.  Perfect for use at home or on the move.  The short handle means its small enough to fit in your handbag, but with the long soft bristle head, it is perfect for use with bronzers, powders and blushers.

Price: INR 430/-

Packaging:
BOURJOIS Paris Kabuki Brush comes in a flip-over plastic cover,which keeps the bristles dust free and together. I've lost mine though :(
The bristles are thickly packed and the steel finish bottom has the brand name on it.. classy!
 
My Take:
This was the result of watching youtube makeup tutorials and it is officially my first makeup brush. Since it was the most affordable Kabuki around,I didn't give a second thought. Its small size and the perfect width make it easy to hold and apply. It picks up the right amount of product. The copper-brown coloured bristles easily camouflage the product so it doesn't look dirty in the first use itself. The bristles are soft and thickly packed. They feel good on skin! Its amazing for applying powder,blush and bronzers. Though I personally like applying bronzers with angled brushes. Its perfect for buffing bronzer and blush to make them appear seamless. Infact as a part of experiment I even applied my Boots No 7 liquid foundation with this BOURJOIS Paris Kabuki Brush and the result was an amazing air-brushed effect.
If you are concerned about how the brush fairs on the *shedding post washing* front...relax!!! It faired wonderfully well. It did not shed hair and after drying was back to its smooth thick texture :)
My Likes:
1. Bristles feel soft and smooth on skin.
2. Densely packed bristles.
3. Easy to hold and use.
4. Picks up the right amount of product.
5. Travel friendly (though I'm planning to buy a small pouch/case for it)
6. Doesn't look dirty in the first use itself.
7. Doesn't shed when washed.
8. Affordable.
9. Looks good :)
My Dislikes: 
Online availability is an issue and I would have preferred if it came with a case..still not a con for it does what it is meant to do!

Last Word:
Its a great Kabuki brush.Its multipurpose and can be used for powder,blush and bronzer (even foundi) and gives a seamless application of all the above mentioned vanity products.

Repurchase:
This won't finish off for sure :P
Might get again to gift someone :)

Overall Rating: 5/5
