Too Faced Bronze-Buki Brush Review

Too Faced keeps a stash of Teddy Bears on a ranch somewhere and uses their hairs to create their super soft brushes.

Kiddin’, kiddin’!

Their brushes are as soft as your favorite teddy bear!

Along with their Summer 2011 Collection, Too Faced introduced their new retractable Bronze-Buki Brush which is a travel friendly brush specially designed to use with your fav bronzers!

Take a peek!

Unlike it’s original kabuki brush the Too Faced Bronze-Buki Brush is created with a layered bristled design much like a fiber brush. This design allows you to pick up just the right amount of bronzer without overdoing it as the softer bristles distributes product evenly onto your face.

One of the key factors of the brush is the super soft synthetic brush hairs (don’t worry, no teddy bears were harmed in the making of this brush). Synthetic brushes can be good to some extent but many shed and have a scratchy texture but Too Faced gets it down just right as the bristles are ultra soft and feel oh so lovely on your face. I read a few reviews that said the brush had problems with shedding but I’m two weeks into using the brush and I haven’t had a problem.

The barrel of the brush is designed in metallic pink and features a twist up dual design that protects the bristles when you place the cap on which in turn makes it super portable and travel friendly without splitting the hairs of the brush.

I used it with both liquids, powders, bronzers, and blushes and it works a treat with all mediums. I’m partial to using it with bronzers those as it’s design was created for such application and excels at it. The shorter hairs versus the longer make for easy application and blending of bronzers on my face.

I’m a fan of Too Faced Brushes in general and their Bronze-Buki is a deserving pick up if your a fond fan of using various bronzing products in the Summer.

    Hey Muse! I have the original retractable buki brush and i find it’s great for powders but not as well for liquid foundations~ do you have the original as well? how would you compare the two? i really like Sephora’s #55 airbrush and i’m trying to find a travel-friendly dupe of it…will this bronze-buki do?

    thanks for all the great posts! =)

      I don’t have the original jean sadly. Just ever seen/played with it in store when it was released 🙂 I think the airbrush and this aren’t comparable imho. Those sephora airbrush brushes are in a class all their own. This is more of a fiber brush versus the density of the sephora airbrush one you’re looking at a completely different sort of beauty tool. ;-D I hope this helps!?

    I use blush a lot (read: every single day) and I am looking for a really nice but affordable blush brush, right now I am using an ELF brush that was $3 at Target so I really want to upgrade–do you think this would fit the bill?

    • the Muse

      tammie get a mac one or a bobbi brown one if you want good brush applicator. this is more for buffing on product…you want something domed shaped or bushier for bouncing color off your cheeks, this one help the cause :-/ it’ll apply blush a bit overly done ;D It’s good for application sometimes but not as a daily blush brush!

      • Tammie

        Are Mac and Bobbi Brown around the same price? I’ll take a look at the mall tonight…I am in DIRE need of good brushes. I only need 2, a blush brush and an eyeshadow brush, which I used daily and really want/need a good one of…the ones i have don’t cut it, I’ve been using my fingers lately…

        • the Muse

          hey tammie no sadly not bb is more $$ :-/ Sorry for the delayed reply been swamped to old comments ;-D! if you can wait MAC does fab xmas sets ;-D that are a real value!

    • the Muse
