I have a thing with powder brush. Every time I saw one on the display, my first instinct was to grab it, take it to the cashier, pay, and then run home to give it a try. Yes, I would agree that most of those were from impulse buying. When I saw this one at Superdrug, of course I bought it.
The exception is that, I don't usually get too fussy about make up products, but I am a little bit disappointed with this one in particular.
It does have a great blush size, and the handle also makes it look convincing. It does pick up powder and bronzer quite well, and it does not just drop everything before I even try to apply it on my face. It helps everything blend together nicely, and create a nice result in the end. The hairs do not fall of when in use. Shortly, this product does what a good powder brush should do.
My problem with it is the brush itself. Personally, I feel that the bristle is too stiff and scruffy for my liking. While it does its job, it also scratches my skin and leave it itchy and sometimes reddish (when my skin was not in a good 'mood'). I am expecting something a little bit softer than this.
However, even though I rated this blush 3 out of 5, I would still recommend this product with a bit of disclaimer. Some people has tougher, and less sensitive skin, they would love this product more than I do, since this is a good and affordable powder brush.
QVS Blusher brush
A while ago I needed a new blusher brush and having looked around for a while, decided that most of them were a ridiculous price. I found this in Superdrug and having already used and liked the QVS set of brushes, decided that I would give it a go.
The brush costs £3.99 which in comparison to a lot of similar brushes is really good value, especially if it performs well.
The blurb tells me that this is a powder/bronzing brush with soft natural bristles and is ideal for your handbag, although a powder brush is not something I tend to carry around with me. It has a short black handle, rounded at the bottom, which makes it easy to hold and manipulate so powder or bronzing powder is easily and evenly applied wherever it is needed. The bristles are apparently natural and they are very soft and the brush head itself is large and oversized.
When I load the brush with bronzer, it does pick u the bronzer easily and it seems to be very evenly distributed so I am not left with it all sitting in one area of the brush. This enables me to apply it to my face with no large and very obvious areas of colour, and I am able to blend the bronzer wherever I want it to go for a more natural look
To clean the brush (which I do quite regularly) wash the bristles in warm soapy water and rinse. Squeeze out any excess water and allow the brush to dry naturally.
The brush is really good value and quality and because it is not expensive, it is not going to break the bank! I have had mine for several months now and although I do wash and use it frequently, it doesn't seem to have lost any of the bristles. I assume that it must have done but it doesn't have that "bald" look, and bristles don't come out on my bronzer or my face.
For anyone wanting a reasonably priced bronzer/powder brush I would recommend this one.
