Rewiew on brushes: Kabuki brushes / kabukipintslid

Thought of doing a series on my brushes - I made last such review at least a year ago, a new review is in order, new lemmings have emerged and old faves have fallen from grace.

click me, I'll grow

Here are my kabukis, all on one pic. I gave away my EDM flat-top so that one is no longer with me. Not because I hated it - just that a friend of mine loved it more then I did. I was and still am infatuated with the long-handled kabuki.

On this pic  EDM's LHK still enjoys the top spot in the lovability order, closely second is the e.l.f. Studio kabuki, far behind is Ecotools small kabuki from the mineral brush collection (too small) and in the farthest corner, most despised is the utterly scratchy and disgusting e.l.f. kabuki from the ordinary series (sheds, bleeds and scratches - do not buy!)

Ülalpool toodud fotol on ära toodud kõik mu kabukipintslid. Everyday Minerals'i lamedat mul enam pole, selle andsin sõbrantsile. EDM ja e.l.f'i Studio seeria sünteetilised kabukid on need, mis rohkem kasutust leiavad: imepehmed ning ei pudista karva. Ecotoolsi oma on lihtsalt väga väike, sellega näo tegemine võtab kohutavalt aega. Jubedaim neist on e.l.f'i tavaseeria naturaalkarvadest pintsel: kriibib, annab värvi ja ajab kohutavalt karva. 
Kabukipintsel peab olema tihke ja tihe ning ülipehme, et nahk kannataks mineraalpuudri igapäevast nahalekandmist. On olemas imehäid ja pehmeid naturaalkarvadest kabukisid kuid need on reeglina väga kallid. Odavam on valida hea sünteetiline kabuki. Neid leidub teinekord isegi tavapoodides nagu Kaubamaja või I.L.U, oluline on pintslit nahal proovida enne kui ostad. Kui pole pehme, jäta poodi.

I know that your into storage of the mineral makeup
this is something I found on ebay and thought you might be interested in it.

I am probably going to order a small set to test it out

These seem to be very similar! Although I cannot make it out very well on the photo, it seems to me, these also have the special ridge in the lid, preventing mica collecting into the swirls inside the lid :)
Thank you for thinking of me :)

PS! If you do not like them though or if you're unable to find the jars where you live, I can go and ask the wholesale company, whether they have some to ship to you.

How much do the ones you use cost?

0,16 eur per jar if I go and pick them up myself
