I was on one of my favourite online make up stores that does brilliant discounts and was sifting through the many products. I came across the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Perfect Finish Powder Brush for a mere £5.95 with free delivery and at that price I can't say no - just like Conor Maynard sings!
Not only is it a great price but it is also a great brush! Made with 'ultra soft brush hair' it is ideal for applying all types of powder including bronzers, blush, highlight and setting powder. Being made from natural brush hair this helps to give you a completely flawless and natural looking finish to your make up every time!
All of the Cosmopolitan brushes are packaged the same in a silver plastic wallet with a see through panel at the front. The front has splashes of bright, vibrant fuchsia pink which really stand out against the silver background, such as the brand name 'Cosmopolitan' wrote sideways on the right as well as a strip at the bottom and a circle in the middle with some information about the product. Once you open up the plastic packet, you get to your brush which in my opinion looks very chic and very classic. It is completely white with a glossy, shiny finish. The only colour to break up the white is the pink writing of Cosmopolitan wrote on the bottom in a sideways manner. At the top of the brush are the bristles which are arranged in a domed fashion. Overall the look of the brush is very simple just like a high end product - looks much more expensive than £6!
I use this as my all rounder brush, if I am going out I will just take this brush with me as I can touch up my blusher, bronzer and setting powder all with this one brush, rather than bringing loads! If I am at home then I will use this to apply my setting powder as I prefer it and find it gives a natural finish. To use I swirl the brush in to the powder I am using and make sure I tap off the excess to make sure that I don't apply too much which can cause dry patches. I then dust it across my face in circular motions and buff it out into the hair and jaw lines. To apply blusher and bronzer I do the same but sweep it across the cheekbones in a back and forth fashion.
One thing I will say is that you have to make sure you clean your brushes regularly as if left unclean a build up of bacteria can form causing break outs. This brush is exceptionally easy to clean by just massaging a small amount of shampoo or brush cleaner into the hair fibres and rinsing with Luke warm water, then leaving to dry. This brush dries very fast but you have to make sure that you pull the bristles back into place and don't leave them splayed as they will dry that way and it can damage them.
I love this brush as it is perfect for applying anything! It was very cheap and I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was proved wrong as it is better than some of the higher end brushes I own! Who says you can't have a little luxury in a recession?
You can purchase this brush online on most online make up stores. I bought mine from feelunique.com as they have a great offer on!
