During a pit stop at the Cle de Peau counter, I was trying out their amazing foundation. More coming on that later. As the artist was expertly applying, I was enthralled with this strange looking brush. “Tell me more!” I pleaded. Very quietly, he said, “you MUST have this brush, but it isn’t sold here” and flashed the “Shiseido” logo.
Didn’t take me long to scour the internet and place my order. Be advised that this brush can be hard to find, but good ole HSN has it in stock. I don’t know about you, but I feel kinda naughty when I buy something on HSN, like in a good way. As if I am lounging on the couch, eating bonbons and shopping on television. Anyway, back to brushes…
The beauty of this odd-looking foundation brush is its ability to work with liquid, cream or powder formulas. The flat surface, along with a full brush, create the perfect foundation finish – no streaks, no cakey coverage. Gently tapered strands create an angled slant that best allows bristles to reach all facial contours. Short handle allows for precise control during application and portability for travel.
I tried this brush with MAC Studio Fix (a dryer cream), NARS Sheer Glow (a less viscous liquid foundation) and the Cle de Peau Silky Cream (more of a cream than liquid) and coverage was precise, even and flawless.
