Avon Foundation Brush
Advantages: Cheap when on offer, good quality bristles, lasts ages
I had never used a foundation brush to apply my foundation before until I bought this brush from Avon and so I had nothing to compare it to. It was a few years ago when I bought mine and until then I had always used a sponge or just my fingers to apply it if I was in a rush. I bought this brush from Avon because at the time it was on offer for less than half price and so thought I would see if it made applying my foundation any easier.
This foundation brush is designed for a "flawless and streak-free application". The brush itself came in a little clear pouch and so after use it can be put back in there rather than it making your make-up bag messy by having the remains of the foundation rub off on it, and also just to protect it. It is priced at £8.50 at the moment but when I bought mine a few years ago it only cost me £3.50 and it was less than half price. I have always thought foundation brushes not only from Avon but other brands too have been quite pricey and was never sure why considering it is just a brush!
The first thing I noticed about this was how soft the bristles are. Even after using it several times they still remained soft and didn't go hard easily like I thought they would. The bristles also stay in place and i don't ind any falling out or sticking on my face when applying the foundation, thereforeI do think this is of good quality.
Since buying this I had since been given another foundation brush from a different brand which also had a concealer brush on the other end. it was good but I found that the foundation brush part of it went hard and made it trickier to apply my foundation after a while. I have gone back to using the Avon one more recently and even after a few years it is still usable and doesn't leave any streaks.
One foundation I own which is quite thick in texture made my face appear streaky when using this foundation brush but this is the only time I have experienced problems and the foundation itself I am not a huge fan of anyway and so I suppose how good the brush is also depends on what foundation you use.
It is very easy to apply foundation using this brush. I thought it would take me longer to apply but in fact it is quicker and also stops you from getting foundation all over your fingers which can then transfer onto other things such as your clothes if you forget to wash your hands immediately after. By using a foundation brush you also use less foundation.
I don't usually shop from Avon much and haven't done in over a year, but I would buy this from Avon again when mine finally gives up on me. It is quite pricey at £8.50 but Avon often have promotions on and so it may be worth waiting until this is on offer.
Summary: I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quick and easy method of applying foundation.
