You can use this brush with mineral powder as will as liquid foundation. It is a wonderful brush. I wash my brush at least once a week and use a spray of alcohol to clean in between weekly cleanings. It's Takelon so alcohol is okay to use on it.

Question
Where are these brushes made?
I'm looking for nice brushes that don't shed and aren't made in China. Laura Mercer recently switched at least some of her brushes to China and beyond the ethical issues, quality has suffered too

Don't know where they are made but this brush cleans easily and returns to it's original softness when dry. I have had one for two + years and no shedding AT ALL.

This brush is made in China. BUT, this is one of the best brushes I have ever bought from Sephora. I have had mine for a very long time (years) and it is of excellent quality. It has never shed a hair.

This is the most amazing brush ever. Deposits just the right amount of product and is velvet soft. I do not regret puchasing this brush, have used it daily for almost two years and with regular cleaning, it still looks and acts new. Any product will work with it.

The Nars butan brush has a much larger surface area. I have both brushes, and, surprisingly, I prefer the Hourglass synthetic hair brush because it does not shed and its smaller size makes it more versatile for my needs (I use it primarily to "blur" foundation, blush and highlighter after these products have been applied).

I like it better - it is quadruple glued, stapled and razor cut. I've had mine for 2 years, wash it all the time, and have yet to lose a hair. LOVE IT

Question
Is it better than MUFE's kabuki?
My Make Up For Ever Kabuki brush with its little zipper case sleeve is my baby, and since I bought it over a year ago it has been my favorite brush ever.

Is this brush basically the same thing? Does anyone own both brushes? How do they compare to each other as far as the balance, handle, maintenance, and usage go? Are they comparable in size, i.e. could it fit in my MUFE kabuki case? Or does it come with its own?

Thanks in advance for your comments :)

I can only answer one part of your question but I hope this helps. This does not come with a case, which is a bummer considering the price. I use an old makeup brush bag (Bobbi Brown) to keep it in my purse so I can use it for touchups. This is a very large, brush, one of the largest kabuki-style ones I've seen. I imagine that it will be bigger than the MUFE brush and will likely NOT fit in the MUFE case. The quality is excellent though. I have yet to find a similar brush that I like better. The handle is very comfortable to use and the overall feel of the brush is extremely luxe.

Question
How does this compare to the Nars Botan?
Has anyone used both? I had my makeup done at a Nars event, and loooved the way the powder foundation applied with the Botan brush. However, after reading reviews, it seems that a lot of people have complaints about the Botan bleeding dye and shedding, and just in general being hard on the upkeep. This seems to be of sturdier build, but I was wondering if anyone can speak to the finish it gives in comparison. TIA!

Question
Best usage of this brush?
I noted in multiple reviews that some people use this brush for everything on the face, be it liquid or powder. How big is this brush? The description says it is a large brush, so wouldn't it be too big to use for primer, concealer and foundation and still get a precise application? I thought this was supposed to be a powder brush; perhaps I was wrong. If it is used for everything, wouldn't it need to be cleaned at least in between liquid and powdery products? I am new to using brushes for face makeup so I would truly appreciate it if someone who uses this for their entire face would please describe your routine. Thanks
