I picked up the new, limited edition Wet n Wild Kabuki Brush ($4.99) that launched with the Wet n Wild Queen of my Hearts Spring 2017 Collection. I’m an utter glutton for punishmentas I knew this wasn’t going to be a great buy but I admit I get sucked in my the cutesy heart, lace, and pink packaging.
No will power, people. NONE!
I picked up some of the Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Brushes back in 2014 and although, I wasn’t wowed by them I wouldn’t say they were SUPER bad either. I’d probably say the same for the Wet n Wild Kabuki Brush! It’s an ok brush but nothing that’s going to change your beauty life.
This comes housed in a pink box with a lace heart that resembles the packaging of the Wet n Wild Cheek & Lip Tint which is also part of this collection. The brush itself has a white handle with an ombre bristle design. The bristles are white at the base and bleed into pink at the tips.
Out of the box I experience a little splitting but it was surprisingly easy to reshape the bristles. The brush does smell a bit out of the packaging so, I did decide to wash it which was a bad idea but more on that in a it. According to the box it’s vegan friendly so, I assume this isn’t made from animal hair but there’s no mention what the bristles are made from on the box. It’s actually quite soft and wasn’t scratchy in the least but it is rather large. The reason I mention how big it is was because they do sit it beside the new Megaglo Highlighters that launched with the collection and surely hope they aren’t somehow conveying that you should use this kabuki with those powders. Don’t! You’d be a discoball if you did. But it is nice to have around if you want to dust and buff on bronzer or perhaps powder. The bristles are fluffy, soft, and not stiff nor dense. I had no issues with shedding either.
However, the bristles get a LITTLE denser after you wash the brush. I wasn’t very pleased after I washed the brush as the bristles felt considerably different and weren’t nearly as soft. This brush also takes a while to dry.
The Wet n Wild Kabuki Makeup Brush isn’t going to change your life and the fact it washes poorly may make it a skip in my opinion. I’d likely be more inclined to recommend a purchase if it was better as it is a ok budget kabuki brush. But the bristles after cleansing did disappoint!
The Wet n Wild Kabuki Makeup Brush is launching now at drugstores.
