I spotted Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush on a few blogs and being that I'm not the biggest fan of the traditional foundation brush, and I had nothing like this in my brush collection, I decided to try it out.
I was surprised at how small this brush looked in person. Its quite small, the length is comparable to the length of a MAC Cremesheen Glass, but don't let the size of this brush fool you because it definitely performs.
The bristles are very dense and the slightly slanted top of the brush allows you to reach little corners that are normally hard to get to, like around the nose and the inner corner of the bottom eye.
This brush is wonderful for both cream and liquid foundations.
The representative told me to dip the brush in my foundation and dab it around my face then buff it in, but I find that this method wastes product because the foundation gets trapped in the dense bristles.
I like to place dots of liquid foundations all around my face with my fingers, use the brush to dab the foundation around and then using a buffing motion, I spread the foundation around my face.
I find that this method is really quick and gives a more natural airbrushed finish.
I have really long fingers so at first, this brush was quite difficult to use because of this size, after using it for a while, the discomfort disappears.
I love this brush because compared to the traditional foundation brush, it cuts my foundation application time to half. I find that the method I use to apply my foundation with this brush does not waste any product at all.
What do you think?
Yay or Nay?
