Tokidoki Kabuki Brush, A Haiku Review

Published in: Makeup Tools, Product Reviews

Kabuki Brush by
Tokidoki, you’re so cute!
Price: 28 bucks.


Long, soft bristles… they’re
Antibacterial?! That’s
What Sephora says.

Full, fluffy brush head
Distributes product over
A wide area.

Too much product? No.
And not too little, either.
Just the right amount.

Powder or bronzer
Application — oh so fast!
Fab for rushed mornings.

It’s a work of art;
Pricey, yes, but beautiful.
MBB Rating…


A+ 🙂

    Hahahaha. I loveddddddd the Haikus. Very clever.

  2. Kypris says:

    I’m still so confused… what exactly are Kabuki brushes for, compared to other large powder brushes? >.<

    • Shannon says:

      They’re usually more dense than other large powder brushes, so they grab a little more product and distribute more to the skin, giving more coverage (if, for example, you’re applying foundation).

      I like how I had to say “more” four times in one sentence 🙂 haha.

    DUDE. I am SO EXCITED. My friend said she’d get this for me for my birthday so we’re going to Sephora’s VIB event together tonight. I so can’t wait!! LOL! 😀 😀 😀

    Glad to hear you like it! Some people were saying it’s too fluffy/not stiff enough for powder, but I usually use a pretty fluffy brush anyway so I’m hoping it works out for me!

    Love the haikus too hahahaha. 😀

    Yayyy finally a Tokidoki item I can buy that works. Thank you for the awesome review Ms Poet!!! 😀

    I shall buy! STAT!!!

    I tried to make a
    Haiku that rhymes, but I failed.
    Please teach me how


    Not only mine doesn’t rhyme, I’m not quite sure if this is a Haiku…

    Anyway, this brush looks intriguing. I’ve never seen a square-ish brush. I gotta pet it when I head to Sephora this Sunday (to use my discount coupon =D).

    Is this brush dense? I mean I have a few Kabuki, they are dense, but they don’t quit feel like “strong” enough if you know what I mean. Like how the MAC ones is very…. hmmm… “strong”…

  9. Anna says:

    Love the haikus, this is fabulous! Fabulous.

  10. Andrea says:

    I was considering getting the MAC 134 brush solely for bronzer, but it’s around $64 (Canadian) so now I’m thinking this would maybe be a better buy? The Toki Doki kabuki is probably in the $30-something range here.

  11. Karen says:

    You have pretty much convinced me that I need that brush. I wanted it from the moment i saw it, and since it gets such a good rating, I know it’ll be worth the money.

  12. Ashley says:

    I’m not a Sephora VIB yet… but I wasn’t even invited to the regular BI 15% sale at Sephora… 🙁
    I really do want to get this Kabuki brush now though!

  13. Sylvie says:

    I can’t believe you dare to put a brush in the paws of Tabs… what if he swiped at it and half the bristles came out? 😛

  14. Sarah says:

    Hahahahaha so funny

  15. Marce says:

    I am loving this
    Haiku-type series of posts
    They are fun to read!

    You make me get all creative! I love this tokidoki line, the characters are so cute! And of course it doesn’t hurt when the product is as good as the packaging 😉

    I want to buy this brush for the colour alone :p

  17. jenny says:

    cute. but.. it looks just like my urban decay big buddha brush

  18. Genie says:

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!! So Cute!

  19. Raven says:

    Love your reviews. Short and sweet ;D. Is this brush god for buffin’ in foundation? If not, is there a better one? I hear MAC 187 is the way to go, but I hate spending 50+ on one brush :p

  20. Christy says:

    Thanks for the review! I’m really liking that it is antibacterial. The one brush that I don’t like washing much is my kabuki brushes (hence why I have a few). They take a long time to dry and are so hard to clean.

    I love this, it’s soooo soft. Love the colors and graphics as well, even though I’m old!!!

  22. Shabby says:

    It looks so soft & fluffy that I would want to just brush it on my face for the heck of it. XD The design is very cute too. As expected of Tokidoki. 🙂
