I love wearing liquid foundation that's why a good foundation brush is a must for me. I have a lot of foundation brushes but at the moment, this Pointed Foundation brush by Charm is my absolute favorite. Click READ MORE and find out why you will love it too!
This brush is the first of its kind: Unlike traditional and rounded foundation that only focus on the bigger parts of the face, this baby pays attention to the often neglected parts: the corners. The tapered end lets you apply foundation on hard-to-cover areas such as your under eyes, lids, lower lash line, corners of your nose, and the skin surrounding your nasal openings. But don't think that just because it's slim, it can't buff foundation onto wider areas--it can! It imparts an even and controlled finish to your cheeks, forehead, jawline, and nose.
I find the shape of this brush very exceptional because the pointed tip drives liquid foundation right into fine lines. Whenever I'm using a traditional foundation brush, I'd have to pile up my foundation just to cover my fine lines but with this one, a sheer layer is good enough to blur them. The result is smoother, more even, and more natural- looking makeup.
It's dense, smooth, gentle, and made from high quality synthetic bristles. I did the durability test on it by tugging the bristles forcibly. My fingers have already turned red from all that pinching, and nothing fell off! It's very sturdy indeed!
Aside from applying liquid foundation onto your skin, it can also do a number of things:
1. Can be used to apply concealer on the under eyes
2. Good for spot concealing on the face (the fine fringes help blur the concealer)
3. Can be used to apply eye primer
4. Can be used to apply face primer
Since it's made from synthetic bristles, it doesn't reek of a funky odor that you sometimes smell from brushes made with animal hair.
I am completely enamored by it! It's travel- friendly, affordable, lightweight, and easy to rinse. But above all, it lets me achieve a seamless finish!
