I've been lemming AND needing additional brushes lately -- for both traveling purposes and for my foundation. I swear that I do not have the standard foundation brush in my basic sets, so I have to apply my liquid foundations with my fingers. Plus another boo-boo of mine is that I don't have a travel size brush that I can chuck inside my makeup bag for quick touch ups of my powder or blush.
Taking a trip to the Beauty and Minerals online store and the effective persuasion of Ms. K of Loving Sunshine, I decided to grab these two babies to join my growing brush family:
I bought the Luxe Flat Top brush...
...and the retractable kabuki brush in their new color Gold!
I personally opted to purchase a flat top brush to apply my liquid foundation because I have read from several beauty bloggers that flat top brushes are the way to go to achieve an "airbrushed" look to your foundation rather than have the streaks and splotches sometimes encountered with the typical foundation brush or sponge. Plus it beats having to use my fingers especially when on a hurry (no time to scrub my hands clean of the LF)!
I will be writing a review of these two products tomorrow (since it's late now and I have to get some sleep :P), but one thing was for sure, these brushes are INSANELY SOFT. No regrets in this buy so far! Hopefully these babies work as great as the other Pinay bloggers rave about! :D
