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.|
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.
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?
