Crap! All my foundation brushes are still wet. What the heck do I use now?!
*frantically searches through my yet-to-try-and-review stash – there must be a foundation brush in there*
Wait, are we sure this is a foundation brush? It doesn’t look like one. I mean, just look at the shape.
It’s a triangle. A 3d triangle. 3 flat sides that neatly end in a pointed tip. Never seen anything like this before. Interesting…
(Oh and yes, the top half of the bristles is supposed to be white but this was an emergency – I didn’t have time to take photos before using it. I tried doing it afterwards and miserably failed. White bristles are so HARD to clean! 🙁 )
I wasn’t sure how this thing was gonna work and the reviews haven’t been too kind either but I didn’t have the luxury to be picky. I HAD TO make this work.
Surprise #1: the brush applied my foundation perfectly. All my other foundation brushes leave streaks behind that I then have to blend out with my fingers or sponge.
Not this. It easily reached into all my nooks and crannies, painting foundation evenly and without streaks all over my face.
Surprise #2: the bristles aren’t the softest. They didn’t scratch or irritate my skin like other bloggers reported but then my skin isn’t sensitive.
Still, I did expect better quality bristles from the Pixiwoo sisters. I adore Sam and Nic and I genuinely admire everything they’ve achieved but this brush falls short of the quality we’ve all come to expect from them.
Plus, after a month, some of the bristles are falling off. 🙁
Now I’m on the fence. This is the first brush that makes foundation application totally flawless for me.
I can put up with the too stiff bristles for now but I feel like I shouldn’t have to, you know?
