Love for Brushes

I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few higher end brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  There are so many interesting shapes. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

Re: Love for Brushes

What a nice brush collection -stands back to admire-

Re: Love for Brushes

Do you feel like the bronzing brush is too big? I have the cheek and foundation brush, I use the foundation brush for just about everything face related lol

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President I'm not sure if I'd say it's too big for what I use it for, but I don't use it for bronzing.

 

I think for my face shape it would be too large to use for bronzer, unless I literally wanted bronze on my entire face. 

 

I use it just for loose powder or diffusing the edges of harsher blushes and it works well for that.  I have noticed it sheds more than any of my other TF brushes, which is disappointing given the price.

Re: Love for Brushes

In love with your brush collection!! 

 

Which your favorite Tom Ford brush? I'm looking to buy my first one, and I'm leaning towards the shade & illuminate brush since I have that palette, but wondering if its worth all the money :$ 

Re: Love for Brushes

@kay634 Sorry, I'm just seeing this now 

 

I'm probably not the best person to recommend a TF brush, because in general they aren't my favorite.  I find most of them too large for their intended purpose, and I use the cream foundation brush for blush and the giant bronzer brush for loose powder.  

 

I dont own a shade illuminate palette, so I can't comment on the brush's usefulness with that - I bought the brush because it was a unique shape that I thought I might like for sweeping on eye primer

Re: Love for Brushes

Thank you for that insight! I'll probably try to look at them first in store to find the right size brush for me! Thanks! 🙂 

Re: Love for Brushes

Those TF fluffy brushes are divine. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Had to update my original picture.  They looked so unorganized with the first picture I uploaded.  Here they are all lined up and ready to play with.  I LOVE my brushes!

Re: Love for Brushes

 What brush in your guy's collection do you feel like is the most versatile? (Can be used for multiple things)

 

Example, the Shu Uemura 4F brush I use for eyeliner, tightlining, eyebrows, and sometimes concealer on small areas like the corners of the mouth!

Re: Love for Brushes

I have a few water badger brushes from sets that are supposedly for lips, but I find the size, shape and flexibility perfect for smudging under eye liner, applying tiny dots of heavy concealer like SSE, and applying inner corner highlight (none of which are lip uses, lol)

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President that's an awesome brush!  I can see that being very versatile as you mentioned.

Re: Love for Brushes

I love small dense brushes! You can do so many things with them! What's your favorite versatility brush? @AMK721

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President I don't really have one.  I'm currently building my brush collection.  I do really like a couple of brushes I just got. 

The B5521 (dark hair) is great for highlight or sweeping off any fallout from shadow.  The B214 (white hair) sweeps on all over shadow color in a heartbeat.  This is quickly becoming my favorite eye shadow brush.

Re: Love for Brushes

Has anyone tried the Urban Decay Pro brushes? I just stumbled across them on the UD website, but I haven't seen them anywhere else. They say "new," but does anyone know when they actually came out? (And when/if they might be available in stores?)

Re: Love for Brushes

This may not help because I haven't tried the pro brushes, but I have a couple of the Good Karma brushes (crease & can't remember name but another eye brush) and they are well made and easy to use. I had to purchase then online.  It looks like Nordstrom.com sells them and they have a good return policy in case they don't work out.

Re: Love for Brushes

Does anyone have Wayne Goss brushes that can give me their opinion on them?  I'm looking at possibly eyeshadow brushes and for sure this fan brush.

Re: Love for Brushes

i also own the fan brush and consider his to be a must have!  it's really fantastic

Re: Love for Brushes

I have The Collection, which does not include the fan brush.  I like the collection because I have hooded eyelids and use smaller eye brushes for product placement.  According to Goss, he put a lot of work into the brushes, even having them made in Kumano Japan.   

 

Re: Love for Brushes

same here - i was really sad when he replaced the original #5 with what's available now.  I've begged him to bring it back to no avail!

Re: Love for Brushes

I have the fan brush and love it. I think I have most of his brushes, and now duplicates of them. They are my absolute favorite, especially at their price point. They hold up quite well to cleaning, and they really are perfect for application. For blush, I love the #12 for blush. It is similiar in shape to Tom Ford's Cheek brush, but not as dense. It requires less blending out than the TF one. I use the fan brush for pigmented highlighters. For eyes, I love the #17, 19 and 3. I have 2 of each. They are everyday brushes for me. 

Re: Love for Brushes

I have several Wayne Goss brushes - I bought the anniversary set, and have bought 2 others to supplement. They're really really nice, and the eye shadow one picks up product really nicely.
