My favorite synthetic powder brush!!!
I am kicking myself for waiting so long to get this brush! The price had me a little on the fence but I am so glad I have it now! Since the day I got it, it has been my go to powder brush. I love how it is cut, because it gives the most perfect even finish. I never end up with cake face and the taper allows for me to set around my nose perfectly. When I am using it to set my face I prefer to use it more on it's side because of the way it splays out and covers larger sections of the face. However I have also been using it at the end of my makeup application for a seamless blend. The shape of the top is great to just do a nice gentle "buff and swirl" to make sure the face and neck are blended!
If you are on the fence...you won't be disappointing with this brush! I will mention though that the drying time for these brushes is longer than normal, so I wash them early in the day if I want to use them the next day.
I love this brush, it is one of my most used brushes. It is incredible soft and applies powders beautifully. I have had this brush for 2 years and it has never shed a hair. After buying the first one for powder foundation I bought a second one for loose powder. I use it almost every day to apply my IT Cosmetics Celebration foundation. I was so impressed with this brush I also purchased their French Boutique Blush Brush.
I needed an all over powder brush that would be easy to clean and care for. This brush is amazing! I use it for applying my ambient lighting powder all over my face and it doesn't disrupt or move my other make up around. It feels amazing on my face and I'm considering getting a second to use for bronzing. I love this brush!
PERFECT SETTING POWDER BRUSH...but
The shape of this brush, density of the hairs, and softness of the bristles are absolutely PERFECT for setting your makeup with powder. I absolutely adore it. My only con... the handle is too short for my taste. For the price point of $48, I expected to have a long luxurious feeling handle for this setting powder brush. The handle is so short it reminds me of a travel size brush. Besides that it's absolutely perfect! Has yet to shed and makes my makeup application flawless! I adore it!
Worth the cost
This is an sort of expensive brush considering that it's synthetic. But I do love it. I have very dehydrated skin so I only use a little setting powder, so for setting, I use a smaller brush. But I always use this gigantic brush afterwards to kick off any excess powder. I also LOVE this brush for finishing powder.
Best synthetic on the market
I adore this brush for a large synthetic powder brush, it is INCREDIBLY soft and never irritates my face. I will say that I notice the bristles get less soft after I've coated them in powder, but once I wash it they go back to being silky soft, and even when they are 'less' soft they are still softer than my other synthetic brushes.
I think the shape is perfect, it is large enough to cover the face quickly but small enough that you can still control which portions it touches. The taper is also impeccable, enough so that you can place powder with medium precision (I use it for bronzing my cheeks) but rounded enough so that it does all the blending for you. Can also be used to dust finishing powder all over the face. Handle is nicely proportioned to the size of the brush, not so thin it's flimsy but not huge and clunky.
Definitely worth the investment, I own 2 and have no regrets!
