Keep your paws off my Japoneseque Safari Chic Bronzer Brush (because I’m kind of smitten.) | A quick Japonesque Safari Chic review

The product: Japonesque Safari Chic Bronzer Brush

The brush: Do you have any idea how hard it is to write about a fantastic, adorable, cruelty-free brush and not just babble affectionately about it the whole time? (Hint: it’s hard. Like, extremely hard.)

Japonesque’s Safari Chic collection features a three-piece mini brush set, but it showcases this little guy, too. Densely-packed and oh-so-soft, the Safari Chic Bronzer Brush is basically the bronzer brush that all the other brushes grow up wishing the could be. Plus, the whole collection has been done in animal-friendly synthetic fibers, making them a kind of ridiculously perfect gift for animal lovers.


I love it for: Not bronzing, actually! I’m not huge into bronzers, and when I do wear them, I do so quite sparingly. This is too big for me to use as a bronzing brush (but only because I’m a werido; check out Dovey’s review at Cute & Mundane for size comparisons), but I love it as a synthetic kabuki. 

The size and dense, luxuriously soft bristles make this one perfect for buffing in liquid and creme products, and I think it would do a pretty okay job with powders, too.

The brand: As a beauty blogger, I definitely recognize the name — but as a consumer? I live in Canada (and try my very best not to leave the house unless absolutely necessary), so I’ve never actually seen the line in stores.

So, as a quick primer: you might recognize this tools-and-accessories-only brand from their precision lash curlers, tweezers (did you know that they have a tweezer reconditioning program, like Tweezerman do?) or cult-favourite lipstick palettes — honestly; I think every makeup artist owns at least one of those by now. (And so they should; the palettes are brilliant!)


The verdict?

Yes. Absolutely. I honestly can’t think of a bad thing to say about this brush — it’s gorgeously soft, luxuriously dense, and animal-friendly. I’ve been reaching for it a lot recently to buff in base products, and (even though it wasn’t the intended purpose), this bronzing brush does a wonderful job with it.

But perhaps most importantly… this is so cute! I’m of the firm belief that animal print is usually a bad idea, but even still, I’m ridiculously fond of this one.

Availability: $22 USD; Ulta is probably your best bet. (Japonesque has a store locater here, though, if that helps!)

  2. Eeee, so cute! I'm such a sucker for über soft brushes. I have a synthetic kabuki from R&L, but I haven't yet tried using it to buff base products on. I think I shall!

    Wow…This is soooooo cute. OMG, love at first sight already. I think the size would be good for buffing mineral foundation. Too bad we don't have the store in Asia.

  5. Eeep! Every girl needs a good kabuki, Sunny ;) Snap this one up before it disappears!

  6. I hope it works well for you! I've been using a foundation brush all year (my other kabukis either aren't soft enough for it, or they're not quite dense enough), but I'm liking this way more. :)

  7. Haha, I know what you mean :p I've been using this for… maybe two weeks? And I've already washed it three times >.<

  8. Sorry to hear that, hon! Is there anywhere you could get it online, maybe?

  9. Yea…I want this!! I have a great Kabuki already but it’s not as cute as this one!!

  10. I WANT this brush! It looks so fluffy and soft! I got the bareMinerals Matte foundation a little ago and I just can't get it to work for me…I keep thinking (hoping) that it's because I haven't found the right brush yet…even though I've tried about 4 or 5 brushes–but I just really want it to work for me! :P

    that is just too cute to be true!!

  13. SO CUTE! You know what animal it reminds me of? This baby goat.

  14. Hehe, I think this is probably the cutest kabuki of them all! ;)

  15. Aww, sorry to hear that BM Matte isn't working out for you, hon :( It might just be the foundation, but I have my fingers crossed that you'll find the perfect brush for it!

  16. Thanks for the heads-up, niche! :)

  17. I know, right? *happy flails*

  18. Ahhh! <3 <3 <3
