Review: Charm Essentials Luxe Retractable Kabuki

When I decided to buy my makeup brush sets from the Beauty and Minerals website, I also wanted to add a makeup brush that would be my great companion whenever I am out of the house. I have thought of getting the Charm Luxe Mini Kabuki Brush. It comes with a pouch, by the way. This could serve as your makeup kit since you can put some makeup stuff that you want to bring with you anywhere. However, my concern is that the brush might get deformed in case I put other stuff inside the pouch since there is no cover that would protect it. Also, I prefer my makeup brushes to be covered and secured for hygienic purposes. This is why I decided to go for the Charm Essentials Luxe Retractable Kabuki in Pretty Pink.

The Charm Essentials Luxe Retractable Kabuki in Pretty Pink is my ultimate bestfriend when it comes to makeup touch-ups. I use this whenever I need to apply powder to get rid of the oiliness in my T-zone.

Product Description (taken from the Beauty and Minerals website):

For girls on the go who love stuffing their stuffs in their bag, the Charm Luxe Retractable Kabuki is the perfect travel companion, and perfect trophy makeup item in your bag! Like the Charm Luxe Kabuki, the Luxe Retractable Kabuki is made of synthetic, vegan hair, that glides like velvet no matter how much you buff it on your skin!

Product Description (printed on the box of the product):

This beautiful multi-tasker is a great brush to apply powders, bronzers, and blushers, giving you your desired coverage, and a soft-focus, flawless finish! Created with the softest vegan hair, you will always feel like royalty with this brush.

The Charm Retractable Brush, a bring-me-anywhere brush that you can proudly show off!

Getting My Own Charm Essentials Makeup Brushes

When I did research on different makeup products, I also started being interested on makeup brushes. They said that to get the kind of look that you want to achieve, you need to have the right tools. How can you put on your makeup without the brushes, right? So, I browsed on different brands of makeup brushes out there and I did intensive research (yes, INTENSIVE! Haha!) by reading reviews about them.

I found out that makeup brushes should not only be effective on makeup application.  It should also be soft on the skin.  Well, I agree that the brushes should be soft. You cannot enjoy putting on makeup if the brushes tend to give that scratchy feeling all over your face. Yikes! Not good!

One brand that caught my eye is the Charm Essentials Makeup Brushes. How did I spot this brand? I searched “makeup brushes” in Google. It is included in the first few links provided by the search engine.

For one, they have PINK makeup brushes!!! I love pink! Haha! 😀 When I saw the brushes online, I literally want to get them out of my laptop screen and hold them. They are really cute and I have read a lot of good reviews about this brand. They have also been featured in several famous magazines. The Charm Pretty in Pink 14-pc Vegan Makeup Brush Set has won the title for the “Best Makeup Brushes” of the Cosmo Beauty Awards 2012 of Cosmopolitan Magazine (picture taken from their Facebook page).
