Are organic facial cotton better for our skin?

I confess! I knew nothing about organic cotton facial pads until this week. I’ve come across them but I have not paid any attention to them. Well, who cares about facial pads anyway? Afterall, they’re all the same isn’t it?

OH NO.

When your makeup brush gets less fluffy

I’ve been having problems keeping my Lumiere kabuki synthetic makeup brush in good condition after the last two washes. Despite having washed it thoroughly, it still felt a tad greasy and less fluffy. On top of that, it’s not looking right even though I’ve remembered to shape it while it was damped. Very strange because I have no problems with the other kabuki brush made of goat and sable which was washed and dried in the same manner.

With an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5 from 34 reviewers on Makeupalley, I just had to give the Lumiere Kabuki Synthetic Brush a try.   And my verdict?  This kabuki brush is the perfect tool for brushing, blending and buffing the face because it’s so baby soft and dense.

Kabuki brush for perfect coverage

I’m not an expert when it comes to face brushes for foundation.  In fact, I only started using them recently with the introduction of mineral foundation in my makeup routine. 

Initially I started out purchasing those that are out in the market made of pony hair.   The results are fine but I thought I’ll give kabuki brushes a try since it is said to be the perfect complement to natural mineral cosmetics.  I was interested to see the difference it would make.  So I purchased Erth’s Chrome Kabuki Brush since it is their best seller made from goat and sable.
