I was on the hunt for a spare kabuki and I thought I would give this brand a go. I wasn’t able to review this brand before buying but at $16.50 I thought I should try it out. It’s considerably more affordable compared to Sephora’s at $32 and Lancome’s at $48.50.

I originally bought the Sephora PRO Buffing Brush to use with my Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder. To achieve optical blurring of pores it is best to pat the powder using a powder puff. So I figured the next best thing is to use a flat dense brush to achieve the same effect.
All brushes practically have the same brush head length. Bristle density varies with Sephora being the densest and Bdellium the least dense. I’ve washed all three several times and the Sephora brush has shed the most. Not that it shed a lot but compared to the other two, it has shed the most. I would’ve been completely happy with the Sephora brush but it bleeds like crazy. I mean it bleeds every single time I wash it. And for that reason I went searching for another brush. Enter Lancome Precision Cheek Brush.
The Lancome Precision Cheek Brush was almost perfect. The length of the handle is perfect for personal use. The bristles are soft but it’s less dense than the Sephora PRO Buffing Brush. I’ve had it for almost 2 months now and maybe it has shed about 3 hairs total since. It does not bleed which is a blessing.
The Bdellium Precision Kabuki is the least dense of the three. I’ve used it everyday for the past 2 weeks and it has shed maybe once. The bristles are soft and it doesn’t bleed when I wash it. For the price, I’m really satisfied with this brush. I would prefer a really dense brush but this does the job just as good as the Sephora and Lancome brushes.
Final Thoughts: I’m happy with my Bdellium Precision Kabuki. It is a good backup to my Sephora PRO Buffing and Lancome Precision Cheek Brushes. Will I be repurchasing anything from this line and/or this brand? Probably not, not unless it has a glowing review then I would reconsider.
