How do you like them? How soft are they? I understand they are synthetic (but not taklon). Please compare to other brushes you may have.

Thanks,

jumpingball,
I didn't know it will take Lumiere that long to come up with the brushes. I thought it would only be a few weeks. If I had known its gonna be April I probably wouldn't have ordered those prepaid brushes from them Rolling Eyes

I'm not sure about April, maybe we'll get them earlier. It was just my estimation. Kim said it would take 4-6 weeks, and it was in the middle of February.

Thanks for letting me know, jumpingball. I didn't realize that.

Would you ladies please review when you have received them? I am planning to buy one or two. (I understand there will be another pre-buy promotion.)

And has anyone tried the Lumiere dispensing brush? It's tempting, although I'm usually not in a situation where I can touch up during the day. And I'm not sure I really need to. Still, it might be nice to have. (Is anyone else like that -- wanting something even though you don't really need it? Laughing )

I only received my pre-buy Kabuki brush so far. The hairs feel very super soft. I washed it first before using it and no hairs fell out nor did any color come out. It picks up more of the MMU than my other kabuki brushes so I have to adjust my "swirling". I can't wait to get my 8 piece brush set.

I received my 8 piece brushes it feels really soft compared to my BE brush. When I washed it, no hair came out. I'm waiting for it to dry so I can use it with my LM mmu.

My email came from Lumiere Mineral Cosmetics. I would think that whatever way you paid you would get an email notification from them when they shipped your order. Oh well, I sure hope that all of you who placed a pre-order you get it soon.

I tried the two big brushes in the 8 piece to apply hpjrt silk pearl powder and LM mmu...I have to say I love the brushes. It picked up both powder so well compared to my Mac & BE brush. Also since the brushes aren't the acutal size it's easier for me to apply to my eyelids and undereye area. And since hpjrt's container is a little narrow, oval like at the top, the brush goes into easily. It feels extremely soft when apply the powders. I'm happy that I got this at a cheap price.

I bought Kim's kabuki back in December. This is so soft that I don't want to use my other ones at all.

I am planning on buying another one as a back up. This is a fabulous brush for $14.00 regular cost plus free shipping for Canada and US. (not sure what the pre buy cost was.)

BTW My other kabukis are Red Earth ($38.00 cdn at SDM) and EDM white premium.

The girls are just getting the pre buy brushes in from posts on the other forums. I also read Kim's forum for Lumiere and Mineral Makeup Mania. It seems that it took about 8 weeks.

I received two e-mail notifications, one from PayPal and another from Lumiere Mineral Cosmetics.
Didn't receive the brushes, yet.

I received my brushes last week, and I really impressed with the quality. I've got dual eyebrush, buffer and blush brushes. The buffer brush feels softer than my JI handi. Very Happy

I ordered the flat top brush way back, just to see how it would compare to Alima's #25. I have to say I was a bit disappointed. It is quite soft (though not nearly as soft as Alima's), but it's much smaller than I expected--- it's more the size of a blush brush than a foundation brush. I guess I'll give it a shot as a blush brush since there's not much else to do with it, however, I'm already besotted with my MAC 169 synthetic bristle angled blush brush, so I don't see anything replacing it anytime soon.

Just got the two brushes I pre-ordered, arriving the day before yesterday--it was the kabuki brush and the baby buki. They are both dense and very soft and haven't shed at all on washing. I really love the Alima 25 brush, so I'm not sure these will replace that one for everyday makeup. But I really prefer a small and light brush for traveling, and the kabuki fits that nicely.

I do have a question, though. What is the baby buki one supposed to be for? It's really tiny. The head is smaller than the diameter of a nickel. So it would take forever to use to apply and blend a face full of mineral makeup. Any ideas??

The baby kabukis are for smaller areas such as the corners of the nose and the eye areas.

My baby buki arrived yesterday and I was at first appalled by the tiny size of it (yeah, I know, I should have paid attention to the measurements Embarassed ) then I used it this morning. Wow! This is the best brush I have ever used. I'm definitely going to buy a full sized Lumiere brush now.
