Sophia is the name I wish my mother gave me. Sophie is a dear beauty blogger friend who's prolly the most authentic person I know. Soffia is the newest line of luxurious, proudly Pinoy- made makeup brushes that will take your makeup preparation to a whole, new (and heavenly!) level. Now this girl who wants to be named Sophia and who's a dear friend of Sophie is going to review Soffia for everyone today. (Get it? LOL! :D)
SOFFIA OPULENCE BLENDING BRUSH AND SOFT FOCUS BRUSH IN DETAIL
Meet the Prada of makeup brushes. Soffia is a line by no other than Sophie Uy of Charm Makeup Brushes, and it's currently the most premium local line of makeup brushes in the country. They're made with superior goat bristles and handcrafted to meet the standards of every lavish individual or just about any person who's yearning for a very, very luxe line of makeup brushes. My samples came in a box, and I don't know if the ones for sale come with it too. Will double check on that and update this post.
Addendum: Yes! The brushes will come with their own box! :)
The Soffia Opulence line is made up of 8 brushes all in all, with a good mix of basic and pro brushes. I got the Opulence Soft Focus brush and Opulence Blending Brush. More details about these fluffy, marshmallow- like brushes after the jump!
All Soffia brushes come with a wooden handle in a semi-matte finish for a non- slip grip, and adorned with gold ferrules.
OPULENCE SOFT FOCUS BRUSH
This brush is a lil' bigger than a powder brush, and a lil' smaller than a kabuki brush. It's great for bronzers and powders. I like using it on loose powder because it's shape is exactly what I'm looking for in a powder brush: It becomes bigger and wider as it reaches the tip. This helps me cover a larger part of skin when applying powder, thus it saves me a good amount of time. The tip is domed- shape too and buffs any type of powder into a very soft, almost skin- like finish.
The bristles are so soft and I always like running it across my skin!
OPULENCE BLENDING BRUSH
This is how I exactly imagined MAC 224 to be. I'm always on the look out for a good blending brush for the eyes, and MAC 224 is one of my candidates. However, I find its ends a little too huge for my Asian eyes. This brush, on the other hand, has just the right tapered shape: It's not that wide and not that slim-perfectly blends colors into a sultry gradient and lets you contour your eyes naturally. You can also use it to powder your under eyes, and highlight the bridge of your nose and arches of your brows.
The brushes have shed minimally during the first wash only.
These brushes are significantly soft-I think I'm the softest and finest makeup brush there is, but man, I was wrong. Soffia is super duper gentle and it's good enough for sensitive skin, and the very flexible and soft (did I say it's soft?) bristles will not remove your current layer of makeup! It's not that affordable for everyone, that's a given, but the international brush brands that we'd save up for begin at the same price points too-I wouldn't mind paying the same amount or a lil' more for something this exquisite! :)
