My Favorite Blush Brush!

I bet everyone know that I love Blusher!! ♥♥ If you know not, head on to read my Blush Fiend post. And when you own a blusher, you need a makeup brush (practially blush brush)! Of course, if you're using cream or liquid blushers you may not need them. But, it does makes a big different using them with brushes! I dislike using finger because I find them really unhygenic. 


So today I gonna share with you my favorite blush brush! And if you're a makeup beginner, this post is for you. I got a couple of questions from my readers asking me which are my favorite makeup brushes. I decided to share and split into different type of brushes and for today - blush brush.

Can you spot which brands are there? ^_^
Bottom to Top: Ecotools, ELF, Loveybelle and Real Techniques.
In no particular order, these are my top favorite blush brushes! Some of these brushes has been with me ever since I started this blog when I was a student then. Most of them are quite affordable, so if you're in budget  - read on!

1) Ecotools Blush Brush


I can't imagine this brush has been with me for a good 3 years and still counting! Despite excessive amount of washing and abusing using it, it's still very good in condition. Check out my review on it here. Although it is synthetic brush, but it picks up a good amount of blush and it's super soft and smooth that I just couldn't rave enough. If you're looking for a good blush brush, this is the top in the list that I would recommend to you. It's pretty affordable and easily available in most drugstores. 

Availability: Watsons, Shins Malaysia or iherb.com

2) ELF Studio Complexion Brush


This brush is totally out of my expectation when I bought it. It may look huge for a blush brush but it works very well - especially for Guerlain Meteorites. Though it's not as dense as the other brushes but its still very soft! You can use for several purposes but I like it as my blush brush. I've been using this about 3 years and it's still working very well with no shedding (after wash). The only cons is that the plastic handle isn't that strong that the middle part might detached from the handle. :( Still, for US$3 I can't complain more.

Availability: iherb.com

2) Loveybelle Esclipe Tapered Brush


I've featured this brush a few times in my Instagram. Tapered brush is good for contouring purposes due to their dome shape that give a precise shading. However, I find this brush is better for blush/highlighting than contouring. I'll share my contour brush next time. The brush is made of natural hair and it is very dense that it picks up a lot of products. So I usually use this for my Japanese products - which tends to be a bit sheer. And for Japanese, they usually apply their blusher right on top of the apple cheek to look more kawaii. =p  This tapered brush serve dvery well for that purpose.

4) Real Techniques Buffing Brush 


I'd mentioned this buffing brush (from core-collection) in my Monthly Favorite last year and yes, it's amazing! Real Techniques brushes are commonly well-known for their quality at affordable prices. This Buffing Brush is soft, dense and sturdy! Everytime I use this, its like ping pong ball bouncing against my skin. I use it mostly for blush but it can be used as bronzer and also foundation. A multi-tasker brush indeed. 

Availability: Realtechniques.com.sg, Shins Malaysia, iherb.com

Most of my makeup brushes are averagely priced and affordable. As much as I wanted to buy the high ends - Tom Ford, Hakuhudo, RMK etc, I find these brushes works perfectly fine and good for me (as of now). But who knows if my wallet allow I might splurge on TF brushes near future :p 

Have you tried these brushes?

I only have Essence Blush Brush and a brandless blush brush from few years back. Hahaha. Too many brushes confuse me XD although I am waiting for my RT Blush Brush to arrive soon :)

plue said...

I have my fair share of affordable blush brush and am still using till now. I really like the ecotools because it's soft and nice though I find it a touch too big, prefer a slightly smaller brush head these days.

Ari said...

I have something similar to the Ecotools Blush Brush but I'm planning to buy either the same one or something of higher quality since my current favorite blush brush has the perfect 'shape' for me, but since it's cheap and not so great quality then it shades often...

♥ Natalie ♥ said...

Real techniques is a really popular brand for brushes, right? Maybe I will try this out :D Or the one from e.l.f. because it's really cheap :D

gig love <3

Ninaonthemoon said...

Jaja Ferreria said...

I must try real techniques. I heard lots of raves about the brand but i have never remembered to purchase one for my self. Gig

thinacruz said...

Hands down on Real Techniques! It's the best set of brushes I've ever purchased! Great for beginners too!

Kathy said...

I have quite a few different styles of the e.l.f. brushes and yes, they do get loose and come apart at the middle. I fixed that problem by pulling it apart and using E6000 glue to make it permanently stick together. Nice post!
