I have been in the market for a new blush brush for a while now because as much as I love the Real Techniques Blush Brush, it can be a bit large when you want to be a bit more delicate with your blush! I decided on the Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush, as I love the quality of Bobbi Brown brushes after using her Full Coverage Face Brush. I also know that Lily and Anna are big fans of this brush, which encouraged me to take the plunge.
For me it was just what I was looking for, it is small enough to be able to be precise with application on the apples of my cheeks and is also soft enough that it blends out blush easily. Because the bristles are not too dense, it makes for a more natural finish as you can’t overload the brush with product. I really like this about this brush as it means I never go heavy handed with the blusher!
I have heard reports of this brush shedding quite a lot, but I honestly haven’t found this to be an issue at all and think it is a great quality brush that can be also used for setting powder, highlighter and contour. A great all-rounder really which I would highly recommend.
What is you favorite blush/powder brush?
