Redpoint Kabuki Brush and Retractable Lip Brush







The last Beautyfix kit was quite impressive with its offering. Among the items I picked were these two brushes by Redpoint, a brand that in new to me and is sold on QVC. I'm a firm believer that one can't have too many good makeup brushes, so I was happy to give these a try.

The Kabuki brush is more a mini than a full size one. Not that there's anything wrong with it, but it's more suited for a travel bag and quick fixes on the go. For my everyday use, when I take my time and want the absolute best products, I prefer fuller and thicker face brushes. I use it for loose or pressed powder and not for mineral foundation, which I'd rather apply with a larger brush that gives a better coverage. Still, it's adequately soft and the handle is comfortable and gives you a good grip, which is another thumb up as a travel accessory. I've had the brush for two or three months now and it has yet to shed even a single hair, so that's also an impressive achievement.

The retractable lip brush is excellent on every front. It doesn't have and doesn't need a cap, so that's one less thing to lose (and have to fish from the bottom of a makeup bag or a drawer). The brush itself is both soft and precise, works very well with any solid or liquid lipstick I've tried and gives perfect results every time. It's easy to clean with a standard makeup brush solution and have earned its place in my regular rotation.

Bottom line: These brushes added quite a bit of value to the Beautyfix kit.

Redpoint Kabuki and retractable lip brush (originally $24 each) are currently available from the company's website at 50% off and can also be part of a Beautyfix kit when you order it. I received a free press membership.
