For those who know me and for those who don't, yes I get very excited about brushes! As they are extensions of my hands and tools of the trade, of which I depend a lot on, when I find a brush that does it's job beautifully, I am a very very happy man. When I first saw this beauty in April 2011, I knew I wanted it and when it arrived at my office, I took it on it's first outing as soon as possible. You'll have to forgive me at this point as I do refer to my brushes as sentient beings!
Now what makes this brush so special? After using it a few times, I would say it's the fibres and also the angle it is cut on. Let me elaborate. Made with a blend of artificial hairs, the brush is compact and yet soft and pliable enough to mold to facial features, aided by the slanted angle.
I used a buffing circular motion to apply liquid foundation, Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation, to be exact and it seemed to blend and cover seamlessly. And where I needed more coverage, I used a stippling action and it performed beautifully.
Designed by Shiseido Makeup Artistic Director, Dick Page, this brush offers you the control to give as much coverage as you want. I have also been informed that the brush handles all foundation types beautifully, i.e. liquid, cream and powder.
My verdict? I love it! It has risen in rank to my Number 1 Holder where I keep all my must-have brushes. The ease of blending and controllable coverage is incredible from the first use. For anyone who is after a good foundation brush, I would recommend this highly.
The Shiseido New Perfect Foundation Brush will be available in stores from 20th August 2011 with a RRP of £27.00.Tweet
