Beauty Product Reviews

Not sure if I got a bad brush or had the wrong expectation

I bought this based on the reviews here, and was expecting it to be a soft brush, unfortunately I found this to be pokey and actually physically uncomfortable to use. This is definitely not a brush I could buff out powder with and I couldn't find a use for it so I ended up returning it. Props to Beautylish for their excelled customer service!

Great brush for precise blush application

I was so surprised at how soft this brush was! I love this brush shape and softness for applying blush right where I want it. Since the head is on the smaller side (and I have kept mine in a brush guard to preserve that shape), it is so easy to control where I place my blush. The softness of the brush means the hairs provide an airy effect so that blending is a pleasure. I always look forward to using this brush. Finish of the brush components is impeccable just like every other Sonia G brush I own.

Love this for contouring!

The very unique shape of this brush makes quick work out of contouring my cheeks. I like to get most of my contour loaded up on the short side of this fan brush and I hold the brush so that the short side is by my hair line where I want to start my cheek contour. I then softly create my contour line, then rotate the brush so that the longer side blends out the line to perfection. I will admit I ordered this brush to complete my Sonia G. Sculpt "set" and was not really sure how I was going to use it, but I found my new favorite contour brush :)

Unique fan brush, fantastic for precise highlight application

I have only used this brush for highlighter application, so this review only addresses that use. I love this brush for precise application of highlighter, while still being able to effortlessly diffuse powder. Since this brush is both wispy in nature but still retains some density due to the shorter (than typical fan brushes) hairs, it is able to offer that perfect balance of precise application and blend-ability. I am able to get my highlighter exactly where I want it, with maximum intensity, without it looking like a stripe on my face. Highly recommended!!

Amazing quality versatile fan brush

I think this is my favorite Sonia G brush (I own all of the sculpting fan brushes & the face 2). It applies highlighter as intense as you want it (and will also diffuse it softly), it is an amazing contour brush, and I have also used it successfully with blush and bronzer. I actually think I could travel with just this one brush for face (wouldn't want to, but the fact that I could speaks to it's versatility). The craftsmanship of this brush is stunning, I have had no shedding at all, the hairs are amazingly soft yet still dense enough to pick up stubborn powders. Over all this brush is a joy to use and a fantastic tool.

Love everything but the shedding

Like Raquel G. I have also had continuous shedding issues with this brush since I purchased it about 3 months ago. Every use it will shed 2 to 3 hairs. It is a shame since everything else about the brush is amazing except for the shedding. You can literally apply bronzer in about 10 seconds since it is so large but still tapered enough to be somewhat precise, and offers effortless blending. I have 4 other Sonia G face brushes and have not had this issue with any of them. Perhaps both Raquel and I got defective brushes?

Great daily AM face oil

I purchased this oil since it specifically said it was good for sensitive/ reactive skin and would help calm skin conditions (like eczema). I do suffer from occasional eczema outbreaks on my face and this oil has calmed them down (relieved itching and re-hydrated the area). This oil is medium viscosity, but is quickly absorbed by the skin. I am mixing this with another (thicker) face oil during my morning routine and it helps dilute the ticker oil and help the thicker oil absorb faster. I would definitely recommend trying this oil if you are curious about face oils and have sensitive skin, for under $5 it is fantastic.

Soft, calmed skin

This oil has been an amazing addition to my nightly oil layer. I do dilute it with other oils, but I have also applied it full strength without any negative effects. In my opinion it works best mixed in with other oils to help deliver it to the skin. It is the exact color of the picture, and even using one drop mixed with two drops of another oil my face does get an orange tint (so I would say this is a night time only oil). Overall this oil is lightweight and quickly absorbed, does not break me out and makes my skin so soft, definitely recommended and as always love the great price that The Ordinary provides quality product for.

Not duo-chrome & not what was expected based on brand's social media photo/videos

I understand that the purpose of this product is to be a top-coat, and so I did expect it to be sheer (which it definitely is, however it can be built up to full opacity), however I was really expecting more impact from this product. Based on the photos and videos provided by the brand on their social media I was expecting this to be super sparkly (like for example the Tom Ford glitter top coats in his quads), and also to have a true duo-chrome quality to it, i.e. a color that shifts to another color. This is sparkly, but does not pack the sparkle punch that other products do, it is a more refined wet looking shimmer (which is fine), but I was most disapointed that this is not really duo-chrome. In my opinion having a base color in a product with a different color shimmer on top does not a duo-chrome make... and that is what this is... it is a light very warm brown (really almost orange) with blue and pink shimmers. I have attached photos to (hopefully) show what I am trying to describe. The shimmers themselves do not shift colors, but do catch the light nicely and are pretty.

The other thing that disappointed me about this product is that when I tried to use it as a top coat (over a matte powder eyeshadow) it lifted the eyeshadow base, so I was left with a patchy looking mess... it is almost like this formula is too emollient to be used over powder eyesahdows.

Bottom Line - not duo-chrome, not a usable top-coat over powder eyeshadow, not super shimmery goodness like shown on social media, and an over all disappointment... would not recommend.

Perfect Brow brush

I typically use synthetic brushes (actually 98% of my brushes are synthetic), which is really just a personal preference, but I found that my synthetic angled brushes that I was using for brow powder were only lasting a few months & then they would start to splay and I could not get a precise placement any more. I also really couldn't find a shape in a synthetic brush that was perfect. Many are too thin (since many angled brushes are designed for eyeliner), or were too thick, or the hairs were too long making the brush floppy. This Wayne Goss eyebrow brush is just perfection. The bristles are short enough that the brush is stiff enough to provide good lay-down, the width of the head is wide enough to allow you to quickly do your brows, but not too wide to take away control, and as long as I have had this (about a year and a half) I have not seen any change in the hair or any shedding. Definitely recommended!
