I’m kind of a creature of habit, so when BrushCraft sent me their new line of ergonomic brushes to try, I was a little hesitant. I’m used to paintbrush style brushes, ya know, the conventional ones. I’ve seen the new style of makeup brushes on social media, but I wasn’t ready to try.
After a FaceTime with Ryan (a rep for the brand), I understood why these brushes are easier to use. The shape and angle mimics the same angles as the hand. Totally made sense.
I was sent the large oval (oval 6) and the small circle (circle 1 R) brushes. They are cruelty free so the bristles are made with NuFibre. The strands are tapered and really fine. I can’t tell you how dense (and soft!) these brushes are.
I use Georgio Armani luminous silk foundation and it’s very thin and liquid-y. I don’t use a blending sponge to apply it because it soaks up too much product and I end up using 3 times as much as I should. The oval 6 brush allows me to use just one pump and leaves the product on my face rather than being trapped in the brush.
Creamy/liquid products apply better with a synthetic better than a natural. The NuFibre never left a brushstroke on my face. It blends like a dream. The line is super-affordable too ($18-$24) . Click here to go to the BrushCraft website.
The small round brush can be used so many ways. Eye shadow crease, lips, highlight and contour. I love it for blending under eye concealer (it gets nice and close to the lash line and in the tear duct area well).
Definitely worth the purchase for a flawless application.
