This is a review for the Sonia Kashuk Brush Couture Flat Top Multipurpose Blush/Powder Brush. I received this brush as a gift from Kathy of Mai-Kat Oshaberi (who knew I wanted this brush!).
What it does: This is a synthetic flat top brush designed to be used as a blush brush or powder brush. I use it to apply foundation.
Price: $10.99 on target.com
I also wanted to compare it to the Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush, which I also love to apply foundation.
- The Brush Couture ("the blue brush") has a bigger brush head than the synthetic brush ("the black brush"), making foundation application much faster
- The hairs on the blue brush seam to be less packed together, giving a more airbrushed finish, similar to a dual fiber brush
- The black brush has much softer hairs. The blue brush has pricklier hairs. After washing this brush weekly for the past 6 months, it's finally soft enough!
- The blue brush sheds, even after several washings!!
Would I repurchase? I hope I won't need to, but if I lost this brush, I would definitely repurchase. It's a great deal at $11!
As long as you are ok with the prickliness and the shedding, this is a great brush. I'm hoping that the shedding is not a common problem and that I just got a bad brush. This is a great foundation brush and I like it a lot more than my expensive brushes!
I hope you enjoyed my review!
