Illamasqua Blush Up Brush: £28.50
CONTOURING WITH EASE
My first Illasmasqua product. I have been eyeing this up for a very long time and couldn't bare part £28.50 but something must have suddenly changed my mind. Seeing this on blogs, I instantly knew that I wanted to use this for one purpose only, contouring.
I have only used this with powdered bronzers so I cannot really comment on how this works with cream products. Due to it's brush density and softness, it can pick up a lot of excess product. You will just need a light hand when applying any powders to the brush or just tap away the excess. On application, it will give a soft, natural look with the blending and buffing capability, given if a light hand was used. I am also able to use this brush to build up the colour more if needed.
I actually find this easy to use to contour my cheeks, easier than angle brushes because of it's short, flat, synthetic bristles giving me more control. I am able to fit this into the hollows of my cheeks easily to create a more precise, structured look as well as along the temples and the jaw with the use of swift swipes. I haven't noticed any shedding from the first wash.
I totally wish I had purchased this a while ago. It fits me perfectly as other brushes tend to be a tad big for the hollows and small face in general. Even though it's not cheap, it's definitely worth investing. A unique, sleek, elegant looking brush too. An instant favourite in terms of design.
