"First of all, thank you Sonja for inviting me to do this review! It's a real treat because I enjoy your blog so much!
Today I am reviewing the Sonia Kashuk Highlighting Makeup Brush. There are two types of Sonia Kashuk brushes- the white handled ones, which are kind of like the "economy" line, and black handled ones, which are also sometimes called "Kashuk Tools" and are generally a bit more expensive and have a black ferrule rather than metal. These brushes are available at Target. This particular brush costs $12.99.
I love this brush!! I think the most common comparison to it is the MAC 187. I used to use the 187 for liquid foundation and mine is years old, but I have taken a couple pics to show how similar they are. They really are. They are the same height in both the handle and the bristles. My MAC brush looks a little different (aka not new) because of age and how I used it.
This Sonia Kashuk brush is absolutely perfect for applying cheek highlighters. I rarely use MSFs, but when I have, I used this brush and love it because it picks up a perfect amount of powder and distrubutes it evenly on my face. I also like using this brush for Sleek brand blushes because they are soooo pigmented that my blush brushes are way too dense.
The only negative I've found about this brush is that the bristles seem a bit hard to retain their shape. However, this has never shed on my face. It is very easy to clean and does not build up product if washed properly.
I have a lot of Sonia Kahuk brushes from both lines, and I've had issues with a few of them that I would not recommend, but this is one I really enjoy. I've had it for almost a year and it hasn't broken or shed.
Overall, I think this is an excellent brush that serves its purpose very well. "
Thank you so much Amalia for doing this review!!!
