RC Cosmetics’ Premium 4 Piece Synthetic Kabuki Makeup Brush Set includes 4 kabuki type brushes made with synthetic bristles. The set includes a flat-top brush, a tapered brush, an angled brush, and a rounded-dome brush.
These brushes have regular-length handles made of wood. The ferrules are made of metal and the bristles are made with very soft, synthetic material.
The soft bristles not only make these brushes very pleasant to use, but also blend out product very well, so that you get seamless application without streaks left behind.
The flat-top brush works great for liquid foundation.
The angled brush works well for liquid and cream contouring colors and blushes.
The tapered brush works great for under the eyes, along the sides or bridge of the nose, or any other place on the face that needs more narrow application. You could also use it for contouring or applying highlighter.
The domed-rounded brush also works well for liquid and cream blushes and contouring colors.
In general, the synthetic, kabuki-style bristles on these brushes works best with liquid and cream/gel products. They’re pretty densely packed, so using powder with them will give you a more heavy application and might make powder hard to blend out.
I’ve washed these brushes several times now, and haven’t had any problems with the bristles falling out.
Overall, these are fantastic, pleasant-to-use brushes at a phenomenal price.
