As you probably have seen on other blogs before Christmas, our favourite brush vendor is releasing 8 new single brushes!
These mostly are vegan/synthetic versions of brushes that already exist in the product range, like the contour brush “Face Paint Vegan”.
107 Powder Polish • 16,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right So far I’ve only tried it with translucent powder. It is incredibly soft and due to its large, dense surface it applies powder foundation very smoothly and evenly, sort of mega-buffering.
109 Face Paint Vegan • 12,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right I am glad I waited to order the original Face Paint (natural bristles)! As you probably know, I love my Illamasqua Cream Pigment Hollow to contour – as you know, creamy textures are best worked with with synthetic bristles. Which is right: This brush can pick up the product as well as blend creams that had been applied with fingers – the shape is perfect (and not as expensive as the famous NARS sister!)
112 Face Curve • 12,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right Right away: I barely get along with the classic flat foundation brush, which is probably why I have not tested this brush with foundation yet. I really liked it with concealer, especially around the eye area, the triangular shape makes it super easy to clean up around the eyes as well.
114 Luxe Face Focus • 12,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right Next to the already available Luxe Highlight Brush – see pics further down – this is the second dedicated brush to achieve the perfect glow. Unlike the Luxe Highlight the Luxe Face Focus’ ferrule is flat with a pointier tip. I think, choosing between them is just up to personal preferences. I like to use the Luxe Highlight brush for highlighting as well as contouring, but I can imagine to reserve the Luxe Highlight brush for powder highlighters.
129 Luxe Fan • 10,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right A fan brush. There really is not much more to say, apart from: I can finally get rid of my old scratchy no-name brush. This one is denser, softer and just good quality. I like to use fan brushes for subtle highlighting or removing any fallout.
220 Luxe Grand Shader • 8,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right Wow, what a brush! Surely already too big as an eyeshadow brush for some. I am lucky enough to have a large lidspace, and for a “wash of colour” looks, or putting down a light base shadow, this is ideal. The Luxe Grand Shader is incredibly fluffy and can blend the crease as well as harsh edges. I compared it with the Luxe Smoky Shader here – the difference in size is huge!
325 Luxe Brow Light • 7,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right Love at first sight! As you can see on the picture, I have been using an old essence brush – I always “highlight” underneath my eyebrows,usually using a Brow Highlight Pen. So it’s looking natural, non shimmery and draws a cleaner line under the brow without concealer (I often find this too cakey). The brush is lovely, I am very happy this cut got picked up for the product range!
310 Spot Liner • 6,80€
icon-arrow-circle-o-right I think, this is indeed the tiniest brush I have ever seen! It is finer than the brushes that come with Maybelline Gel Eyeliners and way smaller than the Zoeva Wing Liner. Size = control. Due to the short bristles the brush is rather stiff, not hard though. I tried it both for Tightlining and eyeliner – unexpectedly nice for gel liners!
Personally, I find two of the new brushes most interesting that probably won’t catch anyone’s eye right away.
On the one hand “the smallest brush ever”, on the other hand I especially like the Luxe Brow Highlight Brush.
The Spot Liner Brush is obviously a very special brush. A brush this fine is pretty much new to the European mainstream brush land. And it is obviously not just intended for the perfect Winged Eyeliner, the actual purpose of any eyeliner is to make the lashes appear fuller, the eyes bigger. And that’s exactly where the Spot Liner comes in handy: This brush makes thickening up the lashes super easy – on the lid as well as the tightline with both shadow or gel liner.
Precision on a different level!
The second brush, thev Luxe Brow Highlight, is intended for blending the brow highlight. A very specific purpose – due to its shape and size it is perfect for it though. As mentioned I had been using an old duo brush for years – this one is nicer to store upright as well.
A brush with such specific purposes is not for everyone, most people surely don’t need an extra brush for highlighting underneath the eyebrows! However, I must say that the straight cut is also great for smoking out the lashline, it’s fluffy but also stiffer than a regular eyeshadow brush.
All brushes shown are already available in the Online Shop.
