    The Nub

    The Nub was born from my need to pare things down for my shirt pockets and bag. I can't stand to be without a blush brush, but I find that the handles are always so big and bulky. This is a FULL SIZE blush head on a handle that is around an inch long. With the punch this little brush packs, you'd swear it has a Napoleon complex. But don't let its short stature fool you -- it's versatile, portable, pettable, and the absolute perfect purse companion to any travel kit. With just the right softness and firmness for the ideal "payoff", you can use it for blushes and powders, and you'll be able to take it with you even in your smallest evening bag! Only $18

    Just got this today and i it! Its really really small - fits right into my palm. Brush isn't that soft as the kabuki or my TBS blusher brush but it isn't pricky when I brush on my hand. I can't wait to use it and perfect for carrying around since it comes with a small plastic "pouch".

    Kabuki Brush

    This is the Rolls Royce of brushes. It's portable and soft beyond soft. Use it as an all over duster or just to blush the apple of your cheeks. It's perfect for bronzers, powder, and any cheek or face color. Only $39

    This is just slighter shorter than the Nub (yes, the Nub is really small!) and its soooooooooooo soft! Definitely softer then Bobbi Brown's

    I've heard lots of raves for their Six Kitten but i'm wondering is it that good? What else is good from this brand?

            eh. I think they do. I managed to pay for the nub using mine... and its UOB card... I did it through the phone though, as it was an addition to my existing order.

              i believe they do accept non US credit cards cause i know some people who placed orders that way.

                    just rcvd my nub + contour & blend brush from a recent Cat spree...i must admit that i was a tad disappointed with the nub brush...when i took it out from the sleeve i realise that the handle was almost dropping out and i had to fit it back on...

                    being an excited lil gal..i was happily brushing the brush on my hand and i realise the "Cat" imprint on my brush simply came it read "at" !!!

                    sigh..the bigger the expectation the greater the disappointment ya....i was so looking forward to the brushes !!

                    so just wanna check with the other gals who bought the nub have encoutered the same??

                    but i would really like to thank Jo for painstakingly organising such a spree for a big group thanks dearie!

                          Hey lele,
                          I'm thinking of another spree, but I'm waiting for their sales -- either around Thanksgiving or Christmas, when they have 50% off some items.

                            ooh sounds good! i'm so tempted to get a kabuki. it's sooo adorable! and besides it was such a pleasant spree, spree-ing with you wouldn't mind doing it again!!

                            on the Nub brush - admit i was disappointed too. expected it to be oh-so-soft like silk, but it was a tad rough. but it does a REALLY good job of making sheer blushes show. my Jane 'youre glowing' blush is sooo sheer, i tried 10 times with my Manicare blush brush and NOTHING showed. but one swipe with the Nub and it showed!

                            i guess the densely packed brush head is good for picking up pigment from sheer blushes/powders.

                              I wanna get the Nub to try with my Benefit Georgia!!! Doesn't show up very well on me -- but I'm hoarding it coz ... I love the sweet peachy scent!

                              And I'm lemming the kabuki too!! Saw the kabuki that the other cotters bought -- wow! And one of the gals did tell me later that it's realy soft!!

                              Anyway I love my brushes. They weren't what I had in mind though .. the powder brush wasn't as soft as I would like it to be and the brush handles were not lacquered (like my MAC, Shu and LM ones) BUT the e/s and crease brushes are soft! Just what I needed .. my eyelids don't take too well to pricky bristles. :roll: What really impressed me about the Cat brushes was the fact that it can pick up just the right amount of powder! For USD49, the brush set was a great buy!

                              Zhi -- The spree was fun! Would love to spree with you again soon!!

                              lele -- Save up and be prepared to burn $$$ in Oct and/or Dec!

                              A bit OT here, re soft brushes. One of the spreers compared the brush she bought with a similar one from a'squirrel -- a'squirrel wins hands down for its ultra-soft bristles!
