So, here's the review I mentioned in my "Tag: My Go To Products" post.If you want a picture of the brush in the box, click here. I threw the box away already and I didn't feel good about copying and pasting the picture that I found on Google on here so I thought I'd just link it.
Anyways, here it is!
5: Beyond Explanation
IN TERMS OF:
1. Packaging: (1/5)
The packaging, or lack thereof, is what bugs me most about this product. It would have been awesome if there was a pouch that came with this or if it were one of those retractables. I had to get my own pouch to store this in. Some people may be fine without any kind of pouch for this but I'd prefer if there was one.
2. Brush Handle: (5/5)
I really like the handle of this. Instead of the usual cheap plastic material, the handle on this one is made with some kind of metal material. (sorry for being vague, I have no idea what kind of material that is) The color is pretty decent and the size of the handle is big enough to be convenient, but not too big to be obtrusive.
3. Feel of the Bristles: (5/5)
The feel of the bristles is probably the best asset of this brush (aside from the price). It's synthetic and soft and feels great against the skin.
4. Is there shedding?: (5/5)
No shedding whatsoever. I bought this last July 2010 and have used it almost everyday ever since and I haven't notice any signs of shedding. I have yet to see even just one strand fall out from the handle.
5. Bristle Density: (3/5)
I would have liked it if it were a tad bit denser. The brush is fluffy but if you squeeze the bristles all together, you will see that it doesn't have much substance in it. Although, this might work perfectly for other people, I prefer otherwise.
6. Product Pick-Up: (5/5)
In my opinion, when you use it, it picks up just the right amount of product. Since it's fluffy, it's really designed to pick up small amounts of product only. So, I don't recommend using this with a blush, for example, that doesn't have good pigmentation. However, it works great for one of them blushes that needs a light hand in applying. Personally, I use this for my powder and it applies awesomely and helps avoid cake-iness.
OVERALL RATING: 4/5
WOULD I RECOMMEND?: Without a doubt!
The price is what sold me on this product. Php238 for an awesome kabuki? SOLD!
Unless I'm mistaken, this is available in all (if not, most) Watson's branches and anywhere else they sell Nichido, I guess.
