Free Kabuki… Friday, November 23, 2007

Filed under: AVON — Phyllis Ida Concordia @ 7:43 pm


The Kabuki brush originated in Japan as part of a Geisha girl’s routine in applying her makeup.  These brushes are popular in the United States due to product like the mineral powders and bronzers. Why do you need a Kubuki?  Because Kabuki brushes provide great coverage and because they are small and dense, they are quite strong. These brushes will provide a wonderful glow to the skin during makeup application.  So where can you get a Kabuki brush free?  You can order at least $18.00 in mark’s Little Black box products by visiting my Avon website or by calling me directly at 1-888-447-7335 to place your order.  When you order a total of at least $20.00 in mark products you will receive a free 1-year subscription to Glamour magazine that you can give as a gift or keep for yourself!  So… free Kabuki brush with mark Little Black Box products totalling at least $18 *and* for just $2 more in mark purchases… free Glamour magazine.  It’s brainless shopping really… but it’s easy, fun, and you’ll love it.  I love the mark. Kabuki brush… and it’s just a great tool… and for *free* you can’t go wrong… and I think it is obvious – if you are reading – that I use *and* sell Avon and mark. products… but I sometimes purchase make-up and tools outside this realm of products.  *GASP* With this said… if you are looking for a Kabuki brush for your make-up vanity and want to pay a small fortune… the very best I have found is the  Cat Cosmetics Kabuki.  So if you want to pay $39.oo get this… *this* is the Rolls Royce of brushes. It’s portable and soft beyond soft.  Now comes with a soft finish vegan leather hard case to protect your $39.00 investment!  Again the mark. Kabuki is wonderful and portable and it’s just great; and did I mention that right now it is free!?)  Contact me to order Avon and mark. products and to find out about Glamour magazine subscriptions and a free Kabuki bush!
