I mentioned in a previous post about how much I rely on my Tweezerman tweezer. Their tools have never failed me in removing hair from my skin, and Tweezerman have recently launched some new tools where you use hair to put stuff on your skin….ie makeup brushes! When I usually think of high end make up brushes my thoughts go to Sephora, but the Tweezerman Brush IQ line is definitely setting a standard.
All the brushes in the Tweezerman Brush IQ line have the sleek black look and it’s own plastic case. Though it is a hassle to take the brush out everytime, I like how they have their own protective covers because my room gets pretty dusty and I have to wash my brushes more frequent. The brushes are made of DuPontTM Natrafil® filaments. Washing these brushes were easy and there was no fallout yay!
Line Glider Brush ($24)
The Line Glider Brush is designed “with a unique blend of fibers, which can be expertly paired with any product formula for precise application.” The tip of the brush is curved that fits to the eye contours accordingly. I don’t use a brush for eyeliner application, but this brush is like the Harry Potter wand for precise eye makeup. I’ve always had a messy time applying eye shadow in the inner corners of my eyes and using it as an underliner (cause small eyes over here!) The brush easily buffs and blends the eyeshadow in those itty bitty corners marvelously. I would say the Line Glider brush is ergonomic-eye friendly AND it has extremly soft bristles that doesn’t poke the delicate skin around my eye. I also like using the brush for thicker concealer, like my it Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, to blend at the outer corners of my eyes.
Finishing Contour Brush ($60)
The Finishing Contour Brush is a dual fibre brush that allows “allows foundation and concealer formulas as well as cream and powder based blushes to be blended easily for the deepest penetration of colour.” This is the first time trying a dual fibre kind of makeup brush. Although this brush is dense with bristles, they’re not packed tightly, which is the type of brush I usually use for foundations. Since the brush is a bit wide, I had to angle it when picking up foundation from my hand. This brush is like the Vitamix blender of brushes as it is effective in blending out foundation from my cheeks to the little corners around my nose. As this brush is angled, I naturally also used it as a blush and bronzer brush for contouring. It picks up a good amount of product from the pan and I can use this to fluff this soft thing on my face all day. It’s like whipping a bunny tail around the cheeks to achieve a perfect blushed look. The one caveat is the price of the brush; $60 is a bit steep and if you’re looking into purchasing your first blush/contour brush, there are a lot of more affordable options in the mark. However, if you’re a makeup brush guru then this one is worth considering about.
I’ve come a long way, from using my fingers to apply foundation and eye shadow and I remember when I first held a brush I thought it was a waste of money. Now I’m scrambling around to find that specific brush in my collection to get that look I want. These two Tweezerman brushes have impressed me with their quality and feel and these brushes are masters of blending. They definitely feel luxurious, and though the Finishing Contour brush may be a bit steep, there are 12 brushes in the line in the $20-$30 range and I suggest taking a look (and feel) at them! Tweezerman brushes can be found online or in London Drugs in Canada.
What’s your to go brush? (And if someone can educate me more on dual fibre blushes that’d be awesome ^^)
