I was gonna post a review of Nars primer but it seems that many people are interested in this Shiseido Foundation Brush 131. So I decided to review it first. I used it for 4 days straight and I’ve been really loving it. Please also see my Haul post and you can see more photos on this blog (Cosmetic Candy).
Here is what it looks like with powder foundation loaded on the brush:
The Official Website says: it was designed to replicate the effect of foundation applied by professional makeup artist. It has perfect bristle softness, length, and cut to apply foundation smoothly onto your face with ease.
As you can see, the brush has very dense head (with synthetic hair) and powder loads very evenly onto the surface of the brush. It has fairly short handle so it is easy to handle. When you apply the foundation, it goes on very even and smoothly without making any streaks on my dace. It also feels super soft so it does not irritate my skin. The side of brush used to apply the foundation is cut slanted to it fits the curves of my face nicely.
I’ve yet to try it with liquid and/or mineral foundation but I think I will love it with liquid foundation too because of the dense bristles. I am not sure about mineral foundation because I don’t know how the slanted brush head work with circuler motion I use to apply mineral foundations. That being said, I think I will recommend this brush to everyone of my friend because it is such a nice brush with reasonable price (1890yen = CA$22). I might purchase a backup in Taiwan because I’ve never seen it in Canada. Definitely a must-buy!
My final rating: 5/5 🙂
