Anyway, at the recent Ellana Beauty Advocate event I purchased another Baby Buki at a 25% discount. Original price is at Php 330 and I got it on that day for only Php 247.50. Score!
FYI, my old Baby Buki was purchased way back in 2006 and was only Php 300, so a Php 30 price increase is not bad. Off the bat, I noticed that although both are made of soft, high quality nylon hair, the old version seems to have denser and coarser bristles which helps it pick up mineral makeup better. The bristles of the new version are smoother, fans out more and are longer. Has anyone else noticed these important changes in the Baby Bukis?
Initially I sort of felt like it wasn't applying the mineral makeup properly, it seemed like it was just dusting it everywhere. But I got the hang of it after several uses, but I still like the previous one better.

Anyway, these Baby Bukis are still encased in a detachable silver tin which is great because it keeps the brushes safe in my kikay kit and prevents bacteria and dirt from contaminating the bristles. The size is just right, other buki brushes in the market are too huge for my face and are too thick. The Ellana Baby Bukis as just perfect for application and buffing, are I just have to add that it's perfect for ladies with small hands, too!
Do you own an Ellana Baby Buki, too?
How long have you had yours? :)
