Awesome review! You are one of the few people to whom I look for honest reviews. Please keep up the good work! I own most of the brushes you mentioned. I agree with everything you said. I hadn't considered using my synthetic flat buffer as a kind of powder puff. Thank you for sharing your technique for application.
1xellus1: thanks so much! re: flat top kabuki- i definitely prefer to use it that way since i can wash it weekly. powder puffs are great for people who have a lot of concealing to do and also for filling in pores, but they get dirty quickly. to me the brush works in almost the same way, and it ends up being more economical and sanitary in the long run.
great review! I like how you went through everything clearly. :)
