Too Faced Flatbuki Brush Review

One of my all time favorite purchases recently is the Too Faced FlatBuki Brush. I held off purchasing this for a while since I have so many facial brushes (kabuki and otherwise) it seemed a terrible waste to get another. After seeing the brush in person, purchasing it, and finally using it, I find myself asking, "How did you ever get along without this little brush?"

Jump ahead for a brief review on the Too Faced Flatbuki Brush!

With a mere $12.50 price tag this is probably one of thee cheapest (and perhaps tiniest) brush in my collection. I think it's well worth a check out and purchase for the price as it multitasks at applying bronzes, blushers, powders, and shimmers perfectly onto your face with little to no work on your part. A quick tap and swirl blends color seamlessly on my cheeks.

The Too Faced Flatbuki is actually a smaller version of the regular Too Faced Retractable Kabuki. Mind you this isn't retractable nor does it have the standard kabuki look or feel. The brush is a flat head and not as dense or round as many other kabuki styles. It's flat, very soft, and lacks the density of a regular kabuki style brush. The flat head allows it to fit nicely onto the contour of cheeks and allows for a nice sweeping motion for blush application. I personally wouldn't attempt mineral foundation with this style brush but for using with blushes, bronzers, or other powder it's a winner.

The brush is particularly great for brighter blushes or bronzers as the bristles pick up just the right amount of color without overdoing it. You can gradually build color up without going overboard. The brush feels incredible on my face as the bristles are incredible soft. It sports a cute pink metallic handle with a floral motif which is particularly flattering if you're a lover of girly pink bits and bobs.

I simply adore the brush and recommend snagging one especially with it's inexpensive price tag. The only thing that can be annoying is it's not particularly travel friendly and can get easily get crushed in your makeup bag. But hey that goes for any style kabuki brush or brushes in general.

Loves this!

Great value for a sweet little multitasking brush that makes makeup application a snap.

That's adorable! I have been eyeing that and the other TF pink kabuki brush, but wasn't sure how good they were.

Unfortunately, I didn't like this one at all! There just isn't much to it for me. Definitely better for maybe blush or bronzer, but not full face. I really prefer the nice, full, retractable kabuki. So soft and fluffy! :)
