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

I recently bought these Sonia Kashuk brushes at Target and they are soooo soft. Incredibly soft. I had to share. It's $36.99 but they are good quality and the face brushes are a nice size and density.

A special shoutout to @Mochapj@AMK721, and everyone else who posts pictures/reviews of their lovely brushes. These posts have inspired me to build up my dream brush collection and I'm beyond excited to finally get my hands on Makie-1 and some powder brushes from the Z and Takumi series.

Spoiler
If you're still secretly holding onto your jam-packed binder full of Pokémon cards, don't worry — you're not alone. The iconic '90s show and game has recently been revived, thanks to the Pokémon Go app, and now our nostalgic obsession is about to skyrocket to the next freakin' level because we've just discovered makeup brushes modeled after our favorite Japanese anime characters. Each of the multicolored brushes have tiny Pokémon figures on the opposite end of the bristles. Some of the usual suspects are involved: Eevee, Umbreon, Leafeon, Espeon, and Jolteon, to name a few (sorry, Pikachu and Squirtle, but you're already too facey to be involved). The nine-brush set features a fan brush, eyeliner brush, lip brush, regular and small pencil brushes, regular and small flat shader brushes, and large and small blending brushes, so you've got all your bases covered. If you're ready to give your morning makeup routine a '90s throwback vibe, the brush set is available for purchase from Etsy user SimbaeShop for $43. Watch out, Ash Ketchum, because we're about to reach official Pokémon Trainer status with one single brushstroke. Reach on to see these quirky products in all their glory.

Heart ooh, did you see these @Samtian ?  The article on PopSugar has better pics. 

Re: Love for Brushes

OOOOHH!!!! Thank you @ZombieMetroAnt ! Those are going on my wishlist!

Re: Love for Brushes

Anyone have a favorite brush for setting your entire face? 

Re: Love for Brushes

I'm the same as @jeannie11 but I've been using the new RT Powder Bleu brush (the large soft powder one) and I'm obsessed! The shape and feel is fantastic. It really does feel like a natural hair brush.

RE: Re: Love for Brushes

My favorite is the real techniques powder brush. I think it's the one with a pink handle

Re: RE: Re: Love for Brushes

@annypoo -- I also like that big powder brush.

 

I own so many extremely high-end Japanese brushes, but use my RT all the time because I can wash them and don't care if they fall apart.  Which they don't.

 

 

Re: Love for Brushes

I just picked up the Real Techniques PowderBleu Soft Powder brush and it's been working out great for all my setting and finishing powder applications. Just big enough, but not ENORMOUS, and the tapered shape allows for more control than just the big domed brushes. Picks up just the right amount of powder. I'm liking the synthetic brushes more and more for setting and all over face powder since I can wash them more frequently than natural hair.

 

 

Re: Love for Brushes

Oops didn't see this comment. That brush is my new favorite! It was so much better than I expected!

Re: Love for Brushes

@MissPuff Haha I was going to buy the powder puff just to pet it as well Smiley Happy

 

(I can't figure out how to reply to your most recent response. This new website is something else I tell ya 🙄)

Re: Love for Brushes

@JayJayyy I do that all the time, add into cart, take out of cart, add in... Smiley Happy

 

I don't actually own many RT brushes (I think 2 or 3?) so it was a bit of a gamble, but for that price point (esp for face brushes), I pulled the trigger. My only gripe is that as luxurious as the hair/brush head feels, the handle is a little...I dunno, I feel like they tried too hard to be "fancy" and ended up with chintzy Smiley Happy I hope you enjoy them, if they end up coming into Ulta, I'll for sure pick up another Soft Powder, and maybe the smaller version too for blush/highlight. The kabuki looks fun, but I have no idea what I'd use it for, except just occasionally petting it Smiley Happy

Thanks for the feedback @MissPuff!! I keep loading & unloading the collection into a cart on realtechniques .com since it's not coming to the states. Now I'm for sure going to pick up that brush!

I use the MUFE 128 or the Real Techniques blush brush. Real Techniques also makes a really big powder brush that would work well I think but I don't own it.

Re: Love for Brushes

@AMK721 I've been wanting a really high quality paddle brush for my hair.  Any brand recommendations?  I can't find what I'm looking for an Ulta, and drugstores are ten times worse.

Re: Love for Brushes

@greeneyedgirl107 sorry for the delay in responding.  I've been offline for a few days.  I would go to a salon or ask your favorite stylist.  I have found my best hairbrushes from a salon.

Re: Love for Brushes

@AMK721 Good point!  I hadn't thought of that!  Thanks!

Re: Love for Brushes

@greeneyedgirl107 This thread primarily focuses on makeup brushes but if you're looking for a high quality hairbrush, Mason Pearson ones are supposedly very good.
