I just love Japonesque brushes, I’ve been using them everyday for about a year and have been thoroughly impressed with the quality and value for money. If you don’t already use good brushes for applying make up, I would highly recommend picking some up as it can make such a difference to your application and the amount of creativity that can be experimented with.
I was SO excited to receive one of the items from the new Safari Chic collection from Japonesque, a range of brushes that use multi coloured bristles to create a fun leopard print brush, it’s totally pointless other than it’s fun, quirky and different.
The Japonesque Safari Chic Bronzer Brush is a pro brush using artificial bristles. It’s densely packed but very soft, it’s got a short handle and looks and feels very similar to a kabuki brush that you might use to apply mineral foundation powder. I’ve not used a brush with such a short handle before, but have seen it is a popular format for this type of brush so I was interested in trying this.
Since I don’t apply bronzer EVER, I’ve been using this brush for applying loose mineral foundation, finishing powder and blending. Personally I’ve been finding it a bit too densely packed for swirling on finishing powder, as I find that it moves the underneath foundation a bit too much, so I’ve been using a pressing technique instead.
However, for applying loose foundation it’s been working really well and for applying blush or bronzer I think it works well too, however I still prefer a angled blusher brush. I LOVE the print, it’s great fun and something I’ve not seen many other brands do, I wish the base colour wasn’t white though as naturally it gets grubby very, very quickly.
Have you tried Japonesque brushes?
What are your favourite make up brushes?
